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...

Where Were You For The Vote Senator...

Bunning, Burr, Chambliss, Cornyn, Gregg, Hutchison, Inhofe, Isakson, Sessions, Vitter, and Voinovich.  All of you missed the vote to break the filibuster on extending the Bush era tax reductions.  I won't say cuts, because that's our money, not Washingtons.  These 11 GOP senators failed to show up (except for Voinavich) for both votes on the issue. 

they were real votes, and Democrats mustered every single one of their members to the Senate floor to cast a vote. The final results for the two votes -- one to extend the Bush tax cuts for all but individuals making more than $200,000 per year and couples making more than $250,000, and the other to extend the cuts to everyone making less than $1,000,000 -- were 53 to 36 and 53 to 37, respectively.

In each case, every Democratic senator voted, including the five, and then six, who voted with Republicans. But in one case, ten Republicans didn't bother to vote, and in the other 11 Republicans didn't vote. Here are the 11: Bunning, Burr, Chambliss, Cornyn, Gregg, Hutchison, Inhofe, Isakson, Sessions, Vitter, and Voinovich.
If every single Democratic Senator could make the vote, why couldn't you?  We will remember this crap when you gentlemen are up for reelection.
