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...

Thank You...

The dust has finally settled, and I have the chance to thank all of those (hundreds of) people who were so very kind and generous. I wanted to thank each of you individually, but...there were so many of you that wasn't possible to do so.

So, please, everyone who was so kind, Cheri and I would like to thank you. Your generosity allowed us to leave Maryland and move back to the metro-Detroit region that Cheri grew up in and 2 of our 3 kids live in. It took us 4 days to pack the U-Haul truck, and we arrived in Dearborn, MI at 1:30 am on December 25, 2014.  We chose to leave Maryland because in the seven years since the 2008 recession, Cheri has been unable to find full time work.

With the huge invaision of illegals taking over the construction trades since then, I too have struggled to keep working full time, after all, why would any company struggling to remain in business pay me a professional wage to work, when they can pay 2-3 illegals to do the same job for  what I was making?  That is the paradox of illegal immigration, they put far more pressure on the working class than any one else...

...but that's not the point of this post, it is to thank all those wonderful people who helped us. We had originally hoped merely to keep our heads above water in the Baltimore/DC area...but instead we were able to leave and come back to Cheri's home, where things are finally turning around economically.

So once more, I would like to thank all those whose generosity allowed us to make the move.
