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...

Happy Freakin' Holidays...

Took my wife to to the ER @ GMBC yesterday...she was disoriented and having balance issues.  We found out today she's had a stroke located in her brain stem.

The good news is I found out that my company is doing a mass layoff...likely after the new year.  When it rains it pour's.  Anyone need a cabinetmaker with 15 years experience?  Or, failing that a history prof/teacher?

Won't have unemployment due an issue from when I was self employed...its pouring now.  Any help out there would be deeply appreciated.
