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...

A 3 Day National Spending Strike

While I was reading an entry in, about turning out the leadership of the National GOP as well as congress, I came across what may be a brilliant idea.
I’ve always said, heaven help Washington if the electorate ever figures out they have the power. One 3 day nationwide strike and this country would be on it’s knees. Just imagine if those “rich” lower middle, upper lower wage workers stop spending money at Wal-Mart, the grocery store and gas stations. Image if they started to put their money in savings instead of buying a new car or stereo or TV. What if they ate at home instead of going out, watched the movies they own instead of going to the theater? Stopped driving their gas guzzling cars and spent even more time with a good book, their family or their church.
I think this has the potential to be a brilliant idea. Imagine that...a 3 day spending strike by all the Tea Party people to protest government spending.

If you throw into the mix just how much more we will be spending over the next 10 years once the government seizes control of health care. The spending spree will only get far, far worse. After all, who honestly thinks that the government is going to keep costs of health care down, once they take control? Not even the CBO is saying either the Senate or House bill will do so. The Senate will cost us only 189 billion more, while the House bill is projected to cost $280 billion more. Comments?
