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...

Classical Liberals vs Modern Liberals

Mr. Obama isn’t like liberals of old. Kennedy, Truman, FDR (even Johnson & Carter served in the Navy) were more than willing to fight for America. Liberals today firmly believe that since America is the problem and thus not worth fighting for. Today you won’t find many Liberals serving in the military, and for this they don't have as much of a "vested interest" in defending this country. They leave that for those who are “less fortunate than themselves” so that they can go on to “leadership” roles. The only recent Liberal who was nominated for national office was John Kerry, and even he has spent the rest of his career denouncing the military.

But most of all, Liberals don’t see national security as an important issue. They view terrorism as a law enforcement issue, and not a genuine threat to the nation. Thus we will have rediculous trials in NY City for those whom we have taken on the battlefield. KSM’s trial will be a sideshow and is a huge threat to our security apparatus. Prosecutors will have to turn over large amounts of sensitive data that will compromise our ability to continue to defeat Al Quieda.

Furthermore, by not immediately sacking Mrs. Napolitano (a political hack with NO background in security issues) from her position as secretary of Department of Homeland Security (as useless a Department as has ever been implemented) after her repeated statements that “the system worked”, he has signalled once again that his administration’s belief that terrorism isn’t a threat to the security of this country. Again, his dithering over actually implementing the plan his hand picked commanders in Afghanistan have put forward is another symptom of his inability to actually use the “Big Stick” of TR’s fame.
