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...

The Look Of Arrogance

There aren't many politicians who aren't arrogant. It seems to be a requisite for public office. Another personality trait that seems to persist throughout our political class is a sense of entitlement. "I'm entitled" to this, that and the other...but this photograph, for me sums up all of my objections to Barack Obama...and it's worth a thousand words.

UPDATE:  A Commenter hits it spot on...Now I know WHO this "pose" (Mr. Obama often strikes a similar one) reminds me of....Il Duce, Benito Mussillini!  But at least Mussillini could make the trains run on time...
