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...

Journolist: Propogandizing The Leftist Agenda

The Daily Caller and FishbowlDC published emails by Dave Weigel, the WaPo's "journalist" assigned to cover the conservative movement here in the US.  He was presented as a "centre-right" journalist.  But with the publication of a number emails wherein he says some very hateful things about prominent conservatives, highlights just why he was terminated from that position. 

Much has been said on the matter, and I'll leave the deep thinking to others.  But, the simple fact is that Journolist operated just as it's critics claimed it would. It served as a place to secretly coordinate a left-leaning (I'm not being sarcastic) response or presentation of MSM news stories, or to propogandize the leftist agenda, which shows that infact it was what it’s critics charge: A Closed Echo Chamber used to refine what was later presented to the public via “news reporting”.

It will resurface in another form because those people who participated in it don't see that what they were doing was wrong.  So, it will return in another form just as “Townhouse” did as “Journolist”. Using a private forum to coordinate political/journalistic storylines is unethical and comes near to propogandizing.
