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...

US Funds Used To Renovate Mosques

American tax dollars are being used to renovate mosques in the Middle East.  We have had record deficits for the past 4 years thanks to the Democratic party, yet we're spending a billion dollars renovating mosques...doesn't this seem like an utter waste of money?  Follow the link to WSBTV's site for the video report.  Congress doesn't just need to cut spending, it must seriously reevaluate just what we're spending money on.

If you don't think that we can't have an across the board cut of at least 10% in spending, then this country is in serious trouble.  Our government is wasting billions of dollars on programs that not only don't do what they are supposed to do, but just merely cutting spending across the board would bring some sanity to the budgetary process.  Ending earmarks  is just a drop in the bucket of wasteful spending...
