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...

Stupak’s Painful Lesson for Abortion Foes

I received the following email just a bit ago from a guy named Kipp Lanham of Pajamas Media. 
In a message dated 3/23/2010 2:27:26 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time, writes:

Hello Rich,
I am reaching out to you on behalf of Pajamas Media. From reading your blog, I thought you might be concerned that ObamaCare has revealed that the Republicans can expect zero support from "moderate Democrats" like Bart Stupak, the congressman who sold out. Read more:

Do you think you could post this to your blog or refer it to your friends and fellow readers?

Please let me know if you would like to receive more information or media from Pajamas Media as it first appears.

Over the past 2 days, I've come to the conclusion that no matter what the "adjective" placed before their party affiliation, they are still, first and foremost, Democrats. Stupak showed that this past Sunday when he actually took Mr. Obama's word that an Executive Order could over-ride a law passed by Congress (in no way can an Executive Order do so). That would be throwing away the Constitution completely.

I think that when it's all said and done, the Democratic Party is going to rue the day that they decided to pass this government seizure of the health care industry along strict party lines.  I also believe that those 34 Democrats who voted against the bill, were permitted to do so in order to try and save their seats in this November's election.  Nancy Pelosi would never have allowed a vote if she knew she didn't have the votes to win.  She allowed those "blue dogs" an out...but that won't save them from the wrath of the American people...Barack, Nancy and Harry have awakened a slumbering giant and will come to regret kicking aside the will of the people on this.

Over the past 48 hours, I have in my  neck of the woods, seen a great deal of anger directed at first the Democratic party and Congress in general.  I don't believe that the federal government has any business in health care.  That is a matter for states, via the powers delineated in the 9th and 10th Amendments to the US Constitution.  No where in that document does it state that we have a "right" to nationalized health care. 

The only state to enact a statewide mandate is drowning it debt because of it.  Massachusetts elected Scott Brown the the US Senate specifically to block the passage of this legislation.  Think about that...a Republican elected to fill the seat that was held by Ted and John F. Kennedy for most of 58 years!  But, this bill has been passed and now we have four years of taxes, fees and fines to pay before anyone will benefit from this bankrupting legislation.  We can't afford it....
