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...

Glenn Reynolds Book List

I have to admit, I'm envious of Glenn Reynolds' ( book review/reading list. The man gets an incredible number of books to read/review. I could only wish to get my greedy hands on 1/10th as many. On my salary, I can't afford to buy even one new book a week...and living just outside of Baltimore, MD...there's a snowball's chance in hell of getting any of the conservative/libertarian titles, much less any of the sci-fi books...{big sigh}. I offered to pay the postage on is rejects...hope he'll go for it.
