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...

Durbin Proposes that ACORN Be Audited

Dick Durbin, Senator from Illinois has proposed an amendment to HR 2847 that requires that ACORN be audited to see if there was any misuse of Federal funds.

This could be the end of ACORN. It's pretty well accepted that they have been "mixing" funds from various sources and in effect laundering them and then disbursing them in ways that is basically illegal. Perhaps we'll see some criminal indictments from this.
