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...

Rahm Emanuel Lived Rent Free In DC

While he was in Congress, Rahm Emanuel lived rent free in Washington DC for five years.  Interestingly enough, the apartment that he lived in was that of Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) and her husband, Stanley Greenberg.  Greenberg has a large number of shares in BP and was the force behind BP's "green campaign" recently.  Also, Rahm, as head of the Democratic National Campaign Committee gave GCS huge polling contracts...
Greenberg's consulting firm was a prime architect of BP's recent rebranding drive as a green petroleum company, down to green signs and the slogan "Beyond Petroleum." Greenberg's company is also closely tied to a sister Democratic outfit -- GCS, named for the last initials of Greenberg, James Carville, another Clinton advisor, and Bob Shrum, John Kerry's 2004 campaign manager.  According to published reports, GCS received hundreds of thousands of dollars in political polling contracts in recent years from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
So, when Mr. Obama is "angry" with's all for show...Washington is an incestuous town, where everyone has ties to everyone's all about the money and all the politicians in the political class are as corrupt as the corporations they pretend to rail against.
