Nemo me impune lacessit

No one provokes me with impunity


No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

The True Cost Of Obama's Recovery

Here's a graph of the true cost of the Obama "Recovery".  It's ugly...

While there have been jobs created very nearly ALL are low paying service sector jobs.  Manufacturing and construction have been decimated. 
– Lower-wage occupations were 21 percent of recession losses, but 58 percent of recovery growth.
– Mid-wage occupations were 60 percent of recession losses, but only 22 percent of recovery growth.
Under employment is now credited to be upwards of 24 million people.  That's nearly 8% of the TOTAL population. Think about that for a moment.  When you put that at the percentage of people who are able to work, that percentage doubles to somewhere around 16%...that's depression era levels of unemployment. 

I suspect that the polls that show Obama as leading...are badly skewed....and that Romney will win by an even greater margin than Obama did in 2008.
