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...

Illegal Immigrant Highway

I have posted many times before that I am strongly in favor of securing our southern border. But here are some pictures from the Sonoran of the most beautiful places on earth. Much of it is protected land that is extremely fragile. Here are some photographs that show the damage that illegal immigrants and the "coyotes" that bring them north from Mexico are doing to this land mark.

This is just one small corner of the border region in Arizona...and is a large reason why Arizona Legislature decided to act...because the Federal Government has abdicated its responsiblity by systematically ignoring this huge problem.  The damage being done to the environment is incalculable. 

The only way to prevent this is to build a secure, sustainable border barrier.  It has already been shown that illegals are avoiding those portions of the barrier/fence that has been constructed to date.  By finishing the fence, we can then begin work on a sustainable "guest worker program."
