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...

Mayor Rahm Emanuel?

Back in January, I received a tip from a source who said that Rahm Emanuel would be out of the White House by Christmas.  So, I wrote a post saying so.  I received a bit of email saying that, well, idiot was about the nicest's the post  "Rahm On The Way Out?"

Just the other day, I saw a link on Instapundit saying that Richard Daley, the Mayor of Chicago, would retire at the end of his term and that Mr. Emanuel would then run for mayor...hhhhmmm...perhaps my source was right.
