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...

Government Officials Exempt From Airport Groping

The TSA has announced that elected, appointed and top bureaucratic officials will be exempt from airport groping by during the security kabuki theatre when they fly commercially.  This is utterly against the basica principles of a republic.  Everyone who flies on commercial airlines MUST be subject to the same indignities that the "little people" must endure.  This was announced by the TSA today.
Cabinet secretaries, top congressional leaders and an exclusive group of senior U.S. officials are exempt from toughened new airport screening procedures when they fly commercially.
If you want to avoid being groped by illiterate cretins, then fly privately or government air.  But if you fly commercially, then you must be exposed to the same bullshit that everyone else has to endure.  Glenn Reynolds comments that this will go over well with the proles...
