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...

NPR's Firing of Juan Williams Was Racially Motivated

Brit Hume, a Fox News analyst assertst that NPR's firing of Juan Williams was racially motivated.
"In the culture of NPR, appearing on Fox is a sin," Hume said on "Fox News Sunday," with regular panelist Williams sitting a few seats away. "And in the culture of NPR, for an African-American man like Juan, regardless of his personal stature, to be there and be kind of a Bill Cosby liberal, not a down-the-line liberal, is a sin as well. They’ve been gunning for him for years."

I'd have to agree, especially after NPR CEO, Vivian Schiller's comment in Atlanta that Mr. Williams's appearances on Fox were between him and his psychiatrist.  She later "appologized" for that statement.
