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...

Was there a Secret Deal w/Drug Companies?

Did the Obama Administration make a secret deal with pharmaceutical companies for advertising FOR a health insurance takeover by the government? This video seems to say just that. Senator Tom Carper (D Del) seems to be saying that the government is welshing on their agreement to provide pro-health insurance advertising as part of an agreement with the government.
I'll tell you — if someone negotiated a deal with me and I agreed to put up say, 80 dollars or 80 million dollars or 80 billion dollars and then you came back and said to me a couple of weeks later — no no, I know you agreed to do 80 billion and I know you were willing to help support through an advertising campaign this particular — not even this particular bill, just the idea of generic health care reform? No, we're going to double — we're going to double what you agreed in those negotiations to do. That's not the way — that's not what I consider treating people the way I'd want to be treated

I thought this sort of thing was illegal. Of course, getting Holder to prosecute any one is impossible. If its not illegal, at the very least it's unethical. But then, when did ANY Chicago politician ever let ethics get in the way of anything. After all, in Chicago, the ends justify the means.
