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...

Arizona Professor Booed for Criticizing New Arizona Immigration Law

Professor Sandra Soto Ph. D., an associate professor of gender and women’s studies at the University of Arizona got a rousing round of boos when she critizised SB 1070, the Arizona law requiring police officers in that state to check the immigration status of those whom they have stopped for whatever reason.  Dr. Soto mis charecterizes the law utterly.  She brings her preconceptions to what is required by the law and says,
“The new Arizona law generally known as SB 1070 is considered the strictest anti-immigrant legislation in the country and is explicitly intended to drive undocumented immigrants out of the state. One reason it has instigated a boycott is because to a whole lot of people, myself included, it appears to not only invite but require the police to engage in racial profiling.”
Which the law forbids specifically...but then, she IS a "women's studies" professor and thus has to blame someone for something...Here's video of her commencement address.
