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...

TARP, was wrong, so is the Stimulus Package

"When the government makes loans or subsidies to business, what it does is to tax successful private businesses in order to support unsuccessful private businesses."--Henry Hazlitt

and then there is this,

"A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul."--George Bernard Shaw

So in 6 months, we've managed to add 20% to the deficit, and have literally NOTHING to show for it.
