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...

Michael Yon, Gobar Gas: Must Read

Here's a link to a terrific article by Michael Yon on biogas production in Nepal. It has excellent prospects for introduction to Afghanistan...which mean it won't be.  It's a lengthy article, but please do take the time to read it.  Remember Michael is an independent journalist.  If you can afford to please hit his tip jar (mine too!).
