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...

Immigrants and Food Stamps

The other day, my wife went to the grocery store to pick up a few things before we'd have milk and bread. The family of a daughter and her mother ahead of her in the checkout line didn't speak English very well, which isn't unusual here in the People's Republic of Maryland; a state that has decided to be a "refuge" state from enforcing the laws governing immigration.

What really pisses me off about this is that these ladies, while ONLY speaking mostly Spanish, they were asked for ID as they had a state issued food stamps card. They produced Honduran passports, but not green cards...Honduran nationals evidently can get food stamps but not Americans citizens. (We had applied when both my wife and I were unemployed, but were told we "made too much" ON UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS!!!!).

The only way to get cities, counties and now states to enforce federal immigration statutes at this point will be to threaten (or better yet, follow through) and terminate any federal funds to a city, county or state that doesn't enforce those statutes. Additionally, we need to pull the business licenses of any company that hires illegal aliens. Those two "sticks" would be enough to eliminate the incentive to hire illegal aliens, much less provide them "sanctuaries".
