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...

Black Pastors Urging Congregants to NOT Vote for Obama

Pastors of black churches are urging thier congregants to not vote, or to not vote FOR Barack Obama in this November's general election.  This is huge...if the black urban vote is depressed by this, it would greatly reduce Obama's chances at reelection.

For some African American Christians, this election truly is a matter of choosing between the lesser of two evils. On the one hand is Barack Obama, who claimed 95% of the black vote in his 2008 election, but whose support of same-sex marriage earlier this year has estranged some of those voters. Pastors claim their congregants question how Obama can call himself a true Christian and back gay marriage.

This could cost Obama the elction.  Hoping for a change.
