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...

Hilary Clinton to the US Supreme Court? NOT!

In Washington over the past day or two, the name of Hilary Clinton was floated as Mr. Obama's nominee to the US Supreme Court.  Just as quickly it was "shot down" as not being seriously considered.  Actually, it would be quite astute of Mr. Obama to nominate Mrs. Clinton as this would utterly eliminate his major rival in the Democratic Party. 

Mrs Clinton is going to challenge him because (from what I've been hearing) he as seriously fucked up things.  Mr. Obama's "signature issue", health care seizure will be repealed early next year, after the GOP/Tea Partiers take the house and senate...then his veto will be over-ridden thereby making him a lame-duck President.

Hilary will challenge him for the nomination and win (unlike Teddy K who only ensured that Carter would lose the general election). Hilary at the moment is the only Dem who is capable of winning in 2012 right now.  Obama's numbers have continued to drop while the numbers supporting repealing the government's seizure of health care have been rising. Even Gallup has acknowledged that one. Rasmussen as always, has led in polling results (all the while being called an "outlier" pollster.
