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...

Goliath Meets the Tea Partier

Without the Tea Party's intervention, this bill would have quietly sailed through both houses of Congress.  Now, with the GOP leaders in the Senate finally understanding that they must pay more than lipservice to the GOP platform of reduced government spending, but they actually have to follow through with it.  With the defeat in the primaries this year of just about every single "annointed" GOP candidate of the national party by upstart Tea Party candidates, the GOP leadership might just begin to understand that We The People won't stand for wasteful spending any more.  It has to stop now.
