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...

The Latest on Obama & his Cabinet

Mr. Obama recently appointed two "devout Muslims" to positions high within the Department of Homeland Security.   Mr. Obama appointed Arif Alikhan, a "devout Muslim", as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development.  Addtionally, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore-in Kareem Shora, another "devout Muslim," who was born in Damascus, Syria, as ADC National Executive Director as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC).

But here's the kicker,  when was the last time and American was appointed to a high government position and then identified as either a devout Catholic, a devout Jew or a devout Protestant?

I'm not sure I'm comfortable with "devout Muslims" being appointed to critical Homeland Security positions?  After all, wasn't it "Devout Muslim men" that flew four planes into U.S. buildings or the ground 9 years ago? Wasn't it a "devout Muslim man" who shot and killed 13 at Fort Hood, Texas?

Checked this on and its TRUE!
