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...

Democratic Hypocrisy

From the Boston Herald...When Mitt Romney (R Mass) was governor of Massachusetts, the Democratic party (then as now) dominated the legislature. When it looked like John Kerry would win the Presidency in 2004, the legislature changed the law wherein the Governor would appoint a temporary Senator, to fill the seat until the expiration of that term.

Fearing that Romney would appoint a Republican, the legislature mandated that an election would be held in 120 to 150 days for the open seat. NOW, with the death of Edward Kennedy, his desire was that the legislature once again, hypocritically change the law back to the previous succession. Talk about hypocrisy in action.

What's good for the goose is good for the gander. You can't change, and change again merely because it suits your needs of the moment. This is wrong and Massachusetts should sleep in the bed they've made. This is a naked power play by the national Democraticc party who doesn't like how things are going on their failing health care siezure impending in Congress, and who need that 60th vote in order to give genuine legitimacy to a cause that the majority of the country now think is wrong.

Jules Crittenden has an excellent post of the whole thing

Heard that somewhere...
