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...

Chicago: The City of Firsts

Think California has screwed it up? Read this!
There are more people on Welfare in Illinois than there are people working.
Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S. averaging $110,000/year.
Their pensions average 80-90% of their income.
Wow, are Illinois and Chicago great or what?
Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago?
Body count: In the last six months 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago.
221 killed in Iraq AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.
Here's the Chicago chain of command:
· President: Barack Hussein Obama
· Senator: Dick Durbin
· House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr.
· Governor: Pat Quinn
· House leader: Mike Madigan
· Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike)
· Mayor: Rahm Emanuel
· The leadership in Illinois - all Democrats.
· Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago.
· Of course, they're all blaming each other.
· Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
· Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
· State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country. Can't
blame Republicans; there aren't any!
· Cook County ( Chicago ) sales tax 10.25% highest in country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
· This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois. And he is going to 'fix' Washington politics for us???
· George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in the big house.
· Of course he was replaced by Rob Blajegovitch who is...that's right,also in the big house.
· And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned a couple of weeks ago.
That is because he is fighting being sent to...that's right, the big house.
· The Land of Lincoln, where our governors make our license plates.
But you know what? As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago, nothing is going to change, except the state will go broke before the country does.
"Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him; better take a closer look at the American Indian."
