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...

What We Can Expect This Year

I expect the coming year to be a bad year on the Long War front...because this Administration has a history of weakness and dithering, I can see our Jihadist enemies to begin a vigorous assault upon America. I suspect that we'll begin to have multiple attacks or waves of attacks. Last week was only the beginning. Eventually some are going to succeed...and then we'll see Mr. Biden's prediction, this adminstration will do...nothing. That deosn't bode well for America.

Jimmy Carter Redux is a BEST CASE this point. I suspect that since 90% of our problems in the middle east stem from Mr. Carter's inability to actually DO anything against our enemies 30 years ago, this president won't do anything either...but we'll continue to be attacked while Mr. Obama ineffectually attempts to answer...and that will eventually result in another spectacular failure (i.e. the commando raid to free the hostages in Iran).
