No one provokes me with impunity

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...

Bestest Financial Overhaul Ever

This bill is a 2000+ page bill...that no one's read, no one understands and no on knows what's really in it.  We won't know what it does until the various agencies with their rule make powers actually implement it.  It won't affect those companies that really need it (Citi Group, Goldman-Sach, Fannie May/Freddie Mac), and will probably in the end run out of business a large number of smaller, local banks instead...

Such is the wisdom of our political elite...
