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...

Mr. Obama's Czars

Why does Mr. Obama need 35 Czars. It was 34, until Mr. Obama appointed a new "manufacturing" czar,A former vice president of Lazard Freres & Co. LLC, Bloom was a restructuring expert for the U.S. Steelworkers, not by the way, a MANUFACTURING COMPANY. This man was an investment banker, other than loaning money, what does he know about manufacturing? But I digress.

Why does Mr. Obama need 35 "high level" advisers, who get very little vetting (see the recent resignation of Van Jones), and answer to no-one other than the president. Personally, I see this as a way for Mr. Obama to circumvent the US Constitution and Congress...anyone out there have an opinion?
