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...

Antonin Scalia Is Right

Scalia is right, there are too many lawyers, too many laws and we as a country are strangling under the resulting regulatory burden.
I mean lawyers, after all, don’t produce anything. They enable other people to produce and to go on with their lives efficiently and in an atmosphere of freedom. That’s important, but it doesn’t put food on the table and there have to be other people who are doing that. And I worry that we are devoting too many of our very best minds to this enterprise.

Bill Shakespeare was right in Henry II,
“First we kill all the lawyers…”
Seriously though, common sense is something often bereft in WashDC as well as the various state capitals. Try reading our Constitution some time…they didn’t need gobs of regulatory language to make a point. Then compare our Constitution to that of the proposed EU constitution, hundreds of pages of legalese that over regulates everything and anything...point proven
