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...

NEA Commisar for Public Indoctrination Resigns

Yosi Sargent(now former) Communications Director for the NEA, and Buffy Wicks, Deputy Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement, led a conference call asking artist, actors and arts based organizations to produce propaganda supporting Obama Administration agenda. Sargent was "reassigned" a couple of weeks ago to "other duties". As recently as two days ago, chairman of the NEA, Rocco Landesman defended the conference call, saying it “was not a means to promote any legislative agenda and any suggestions to that end are simply false.”

However, reading a transcript of the call, literally, no other conclusion can be drawn. But, Mr. Sargent, has resigned from the NEA. No doubt, he, like Van Johnson, will obtain a VERY lucrative job in the private sector...or an NGO.
