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...

Bill Maher Slams Obama

Bill Maher, that icon of conservative values (ok, sarcasm off) recently slammed Barack Obama's commencement address last week.  Mr. Obama said that modern technology was a distraction, and detracted from real political thought.  Mr. Maher said,
Maher noted candidate Obama relied heavily on new media to get his message out: "How exactly does President 'Sanford and Son' think he got elected — by CB radio? The entire campaign was based on the Internet."

Maher went on to say Apple CEO Steve Jobs could do a better job running the country than the Obama administration.
Now that's rather telling, if hard left pseudo-commentators are beginning to see that the emperor has no clothes, perhaps the rest of the media complex isn't too far behind.  At least you could hope so, but then after all, Maher and Jon Stewart are just about the only ones in media who will critsize this administration.
