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...

Smoke & Mirrors

Democratic House Majority Whip James Clyburn of South Carolina attempting to explain why "deeming a bill to be passed" is both Constitutional and the rightt thing to do...In my opinion this doesn't pass the smell test.  According to Art 1, Sec 7 a bill MUST be voted on by both houses of Congress to be "passed" voting  on a rule that "passes" a bill becomes a rubber stamp and thus doesn't pass a simple/basic Constitutionality question.
