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...

Most American Support Aggressive Questioning of Terrorists

Rasmussen Reports' recent poll on "aggressive questioning", personally, I prefer torturing the bastards, says that a strong majority of Americans support such tactics to get information.
Fifty-eight percent (58%) of U.S. voters say water boarding and other aggressive interrogation techniques should be used to gain information from the terrorist who attempted to bomb an airliner on Christmas Day.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 30% oppose the use of such techniques, and another 12% are not sure.
We know that much of the early intel that was obtained in Afghanistan was through water boarding KSM, and others who were caught early. The information obtained prevented a number of terrorist attacks...yet weak sister's in Congress has forbid en such interrogation from being used. It's a shame, really, these people have chosen to wake total war on America and we have limited ourselves in the ability to obtain information. Not only that, the New York Times has gone so far as to reveal secret methods to obtain information through tracking terrorists emails, money transfers, and other methods. Yet, this "newspaper" decided to give away those methods...without being punished. Obviously, they don't desire us to win.

This conflict with jihadis will last at least a generation, if not longer, it won't go away in the next 10 years, perhaps not for 30 or 40...but we need information in order to inflict damage upon them, and obtaining that information is becoming more and more difficult with each passing day with the idiotic limits that we have placed upon ourselves.
