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...

Cap And Trade, Sen Barb Mikulski Finally Responds

Thank you for getting in touch with me about a cap and trade system to reduce global warming pollution. It's good to hear from you.

I appreciate hearing of your opposition to the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 (H.R. 2454) and the Clean Energy Jobs and American Power Act. H.R. 2454 has passed the House of Representatives. The Clean Energy Jobs and American Power Act is currently pending in the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. Both of these bills would establish a cap and trade system to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

I agree that Congress must consider the impact of this legislation on our economy and on American jobs. America's dependence on foreign oil and global warming must be addressed in a way that strengthens our economy.

Knowing of your views and concerns will be helpful as the Senate addresses the issue of climate change.

Thanks once again for writing. Please let me know if I can be of assistance in the future.

Barbara A. Mikulski
United States Senator
