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...

Prescott Square Apartments, Pikesville, Maryland

I live just outside of Baltimore, Maryland in a suburb called Pikesville.  It's nice place to live for the most part.  But the apartment complex I live in mystifies me most of the time.  With record numbers of construction workers out of work.  They only hire contractors who use illegal workers.

First it was the roofing contractor.  They were here for a week.  The only person on the crew working here who spoke ANY english at all was the foreman, and he only spoke broken english.  When I tried to ask them where they were from...they literally fled for the day.  I called/contacted the various agencies in the county before giving up and trying the local corrupt Congresscritter, John Sarbanes (son of the former Senator for Maryland, and "Senator" in waiting when Ben Cardin decides to retire)...nothing happened.

Now, the carpet is being  replaced...and once again, not one of the men doing the work can speak English.  As a cabinetmaker who hasn't worked regularly in two years, this really pisses me off.  I know carpet layers who are out of work, and this contractor is using illegals.  There are carpenters who can't find work, and all the crews I see...doing what little work there is, are's well past time that we do something about this. 

I would like to see significant increases in the amounts of fines for employers who hire and use illegal workers.  Additionally, I'd like to see a secure border.  Fortunately, the DREAM Act was voted down, or we'd have a flood of ever more illegals coming north.  But, alas, none of these things will happen as long as unions and their Democratic party enablers see illegal workers as a resource (i.e. potential voters) to be exploited.
