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...

10 Signs Dem's Are In For A Bad Election Year

From Mo Lane

  1. The response of every Democrat to every Republican question or comment becomes, semantically speaking, “George W. Bush.” Up to and including “What are the visiting hours for the art gallery?”
  2. The Democrats start talking up “scandals” involving Republicans that wouldn’t even get you a verbal reprimand at your job if you did them.   Link (happening now...)
  3. A Democratic legislator snaps and attempts to strangle someone. On camera.
  4. The usual suspects start talking about how important it is to keep the Republicans from being able to overturn vetoes.
  5. All talk of the filibuster dies the True Death.
  6. The DSCC starts funding the New York races. (happening now...)
  7. The DCCC starts funding urban House races.   (happening now...)
  8. We see a week of “Will the Republicans try to impeach the President?” stories in the media. Or a month of them.
  9. A convoluted theory appears that tortuously ‘proves’ that the Democrats are actually going to gain seats, really. It will involve three random trends whose relationship with each other is not immediately obvious. It will have a buzzword. Every site on the Left will talk it up for two weeks. It will then disappear without a trace.
  10. “Of course we’re going to keep Congress. GOTV will save us.”

and then this bumper sticker has begun appearing...
