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...

Pressing National Issue: Childhood Obesity

In an attempt to give his wife relevance, and the additional benefit of something to do...Barack Obama has formed a Task Force on Childhood Obesity in order to combat this highly pressing problem. It's mandate will be to review those programs and policies that are most closely relating to children's nutrition so as to develop a national action plan to combat this weighty issue. After all, it's not as if stagnant high unemployment rates or runaway government spending weren't more important.
