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...

ACORN Investigations Whitewashed

Much as I suspected all those months ago when ACORN was shown to be the badly corrupt organization that I thought, it's enablers in Washington, DC and elsewhere have already begun it's rehabilitation. It was very naive to think that the biggest weapon the Democrats have for corrupting the electoral system would simply be allowed to collapse under the weight of its corruption.

As I said at the time, ACORN would simply be allowed to sit in the corner for a while, until the figurative "dust" settled, then all be go back as it was. I just didn't figure it would only take 4 months. The NY Post is reporting that the rehabilitation effort is nearly over.
A congressional research arm said Tuesday that the left-wing pressure group -- which Congress recently voted to cut off from federal funds after a sting operation caught employees dispensing housing-fraud advice to a couple posing as a pimp and a prostitute -- violated no federal regulations.

This follows a Brooklyn federal judge's ruling this month that Congress' action was itself unconstitutional -- and an "internal review" (read: whitewash) by former Massachusetts Attorney General Scott Harshbarger that found "no evidence" of illegal action on ACORN's part.

Indeed, Harshbarger blamed the whole mess on lax standards introduced by the group's disgraced former leader, Wade Rathke, explaining that the scandal "erupted just as ACORN's reform leadership was about to complete an ambitious and professionally directed organizational and cultural transformation."
Next we'll see the Democratic majority in Congress (probably in January) quietly restore all of the lost funding. Meanwhile, ACORN will continue to implement it's plans to fraudulently steal elections. Much as they did the Minnesota Senatorial election last year.
