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...

Sequestration: The Big Lie

You know what really annoys me about all of the Obama administration rhetoric is that spending cuts will occur.  That's the lie.  Sequestration isn't about spending's about FUTURE GROWTH of spending.  That has nothing to do with spending cuts now.  It means that Congress (should) bind itself to an agreement they made in 2011. Unfortunately, no Congress has EVER kept a promise to not increase spending.  At least not since the 1920's.
