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 company I work as a carpenter/installer for,  Atlantic Fixtures in the Baltimore, MD area, as a punishment for having to have a follow up appointment for some ribs I had broken back in April, decided to give a a week off unpaid...even though the job I was to work on in Annapolis, MD area, I would have been able to stay at home and drive there every morning...

To make a long story short, I am being evicted from my house tomorrow...because losing a week's pay meant I couldn't pay my rent this month. My wife is freaking out trying to pack everything by 10 am tomorrow...and to add insult to injury, I have about $80.00 in the bank.  We tried Jewish Family Services in Baltimore for help, but they turned us down. A friend has rented us a UHaul and a storage unit so that we can save as much of our stuff as possible...

...Is there anyone in the metro-Baltimore area that has a bed she can sleep on this weekend? I am stuck in Poughkeepsie, NY working on installing the millwork in a Kay jewelry store...she won't let me come home to help because I'll probably lose my job. I'm desperate...

I thought that we had another week, when my next paycheck would hit, with the expense money, etc., I could have done it...but not now. I have nothing coming in. We need help.

The Demz Massive Tax Increase

On July 1, 2014...we saw the single highest increase in taxes in history:

Here is what happened on July 1st 2014:
Top Income Tax bracket went from 35% to 39.6%
Top Income Payroll Tax went from 37.4% to 52.2%
Capital Gains Tax went from 15 % to 28%
Dividend Tax went from 15% to 39.6%
Estate Tax went from 0% to 55%
These taxes were all passed under the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obama Care. All these taxes were passed with only Democrat votes, not one Republican voted to do these taxes. Remember this come election time. 

Not one Republican voted for these taxes...when you see your abilility to pay for these huge taxes...remember that they were passed by democrats.
