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...

Michelle's Struggle

Michelle Obama say's it's a huge imposition for her to fly with Oprah to Copenhagen. While there, she's going to have lunch with the Queen of Denmark, have a private meeting with the Prime Minister, all the while staying in a royal suite in a 5 star's a huge imposition alright.

To make matters worse...her husband, the leader of the free world, is wasting a day of his time, because he as nothing better to make a decision on whether to prosecute the war in Afghanistan ("the good war"-so he said during the campaign) to a successful conclusion (or to run away and hope the Taliban doesn't give shelter to Al Queda again), what to do about his failing attempt to seize control of health care...what to do about wrecking the economy with "cap & trade"...

I mean what could be more important? Getting a huge chance for graft and corruption for political supporters in Chicago by "winning" the Olympic games in 2016, as if Chicago is capable of making a profit from them (Salt Lake City was only able to by hiring Mitt Romney). Yep, it's huge imposition all right.
