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...

Bush Won't Critisize Obama

Showing that Barbara knew how to raise her boys to be gentlemen, George Bush, Mr. Obama's predecessor, refused to critisize the current president actions or agenda.  His taped appearance on Oprah Winfrey's show will appear on November 9. 
"I don't think it's good for a former president to be out there opining on every darned issue," he told Winfrey. "He's got a plenty tough job. Trust me. And there's gonna be plenty of critics, and he doesn't need me criticizing him. And I don't think it's good for the presidency. Other people have a different point of view."

Mr. Bush has shown that he has a great deal more class than the two former Democrats to hold this nation's highest political office.  Neither James Earl Carter or William Jefferson Clinton have been able to keep a civil tongue about Mr. Bush...which is a sad commentary on America today.
