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...

Reinstating Michael WRONG!

The NFL's reinstatement of Michael Vick is the latest example of the NFL's moral bankruptcy. Mr. Vick tortured and killed animals for entertainement. While I'm certainly NOT a supporter of PETA or any other "animal rights" group, I do agree that wantonly torturing or abusing animals is sick. By reinstating him, the NFL shows that, quite frankly, they don't care about being a moral standard in America. This shows that one can do virtually anything, go through the public "atonement process" and be allowed to return to the sport. This disregards the obligation the NFL has towards it's fans. It's all about the money, nothing more, nothing less.
