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...

Mad Duck Session

I expect that we'll see in the rump session of Congress, an attempt by Mr. Reid and Mrs. Pelosi to push through all those agenda items that they refused to see to prior to the election, rightly thinking that this would further inflame voters.  After all, with the loss of 60 seats, many of them committee chairmen and thus senior members of the Democratic leadership, the party thinks that it has nothing to lose...

 I expect to see "Cap & Trade" pushed through the Senate, as well a "Card Check" and a few other sundry items that Democratic constiuencies have been pining for for decaes.  This "Mad Duck" session will only make the election of 2012 much, much worse for the Democratic Party...voters have much longer memory than we did just a few years ago...
