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 Barney Shuffle

Scott Bielat has gone on the offensive:

Hey Rich----Followed you over from the Daily Caller to kvetch about your two spelling/grammar errors in your comment there, especially glaring with your fine writing. Completely unfair, but your comment must be about the tenth I've run into today by fellow conservatives and I'm unloading on you. How is it conservatives don't/won't use spell-check and proofread their comments. We can pick up after ourselves on the national mall but we can't be bothered to clean up our blog-posts. I'm not the repressed spinster you're imagining, but a 57 yr. old father of two who just read one too many embarrassing comments by fellow right-wingers today. Incidentally, fine blog you have here.

Well, because I'm not perfect...nor do I pretend to be. Typos are the effect that's inherent in typing quickly, that and not bothering to take the time to USE spell check features on comments. most sites don't have it.

The grammer is sheer laziness...if you really want to see both on display take a look at the comments on any piece in the daily beast and you'll see just a egregious errors...from lefties. So it goes both ways.

Thanks, I do appreciate it your traffic. My little blog is...little, though I've been lucky enough to get a scoop or two.
