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...

Victory in Massachusetts is Battle in Long Campaign

Yesterday was merely the 2nd engagement in the long war to thwart the creep of socialism in America. The first battle was last fall in Virginia and New Jersey. Make no mistake, yesterday's victory in Massachusetts was an important one, but it's merely one in a long series of battles that make up this years campaign...we can this fall, take back at least the house and possibly the Senate.

However, if we do so, we cannot allow the GOP to become complacent as they did during the 2002-2006 period where you couldn't tell the difference twixt Democrats & the "Dem Lite"-GOP "Compassionate Conservatives". We must insist the end of earmarking completely. That presently is the most invidious form of corruption in Congress today.

I agree it's one battle. But a significant one. When you consider that champion swimmer Kennedy was senator longer than you and most people have been alive (even I was pretty young when he slithered his way into the Senate) the victory last night was huge. I believe many Democrats got a little complacent, having occupied the controlling seats since before George W. left. People Don't like to admit that much of the legislature that took place while he was in office was the result of the Dems—NOT W. They won't even admit it when it's pointed out to them. We fought one revolution and won; we can do it again.
