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...

The Dream Act

With Mr. Obama weighing in with his version of the dream act giving citizenship to the children of illegal immigrants brought to this country by their parents, and thus seizing moment from the stupidity of the GOP, he has attempted to influence the Hispanic vote in the upcoming election.

My take?  Before any sort of "Dream Act" can be discussed, we, as a nation must secure the porous Mexican border prior to any sort of discussion on illegal immigration.  It's that simple.  No ifs, ands or buts.  Close and secure the border, and only then talk about what to do with the 12-20 MILLION illegals currently here.

My view is that those individuals must return to their home countries and apply for a visa, just as everyone else who entered the country accourding to the laws passed by Congress and signed into law by past presidents.  Circumventing those laws to enter the country makes every damn one of them a felon in my view.  They broke the law of the land, that being set forth by Congress.  Ask any one who has taken 5 or more years to get a residence visa and see just how vehement they oppose amnesty for illegals.

This president has proposed his version of the "Dream Act" in order to pander to the Hispanic community here in America.  It's not about "fairness" it's about gaining political favour with a voting block that just might shore up his stumbling candidacy.
