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...

Proposed lineup changes for MSNBC

By JP Bender

Being at home a lot these days, I have had the opportunity to watch some pretty bad programming. So I got to thinking, there could be some changes to spice up the worst of the worst.

With recent developments within the entertainment industry, I think that it’s time for MSNBC to consider an option shake-up in staffing their cable shows. These changes could launch MSNBC to higher ratings – or not.

I would propose every morning, just before the Way Too Early Show, Singer Christina Aguliera could sing live, our National Anthem, Many new viewers would tune in just to see if she ever gets it correct and of course, no alcoholic beverages would be allowed on the set. With this new addition, promoted and marketed correctly, I would think the nationwide ratings would double from 224 viewers to well over 600 viewers.

Then on Morning Joe, Lindsay Lohan, America’s favorite mess, could replace Mika Brzezinski. Looking at this young beauty with no talent would be a welcomed change to listening to the constant nonsense chatter offered by an uninformed airhead, who dresses like it’s either Halloween or the Ringling Bros. Circus in coming to town.

There would be no need to change daytime programming since everybody is watching serious programming on other channels – the Food Network, The History Channel, The Travel Channel and of course the Cartoon Network.

During the evening meal, Melissa Leo could appear and just like at the Oscars, she could drop the F-Bomb to start off the evening. I don’t know how Rachel Mad-Cow will handle the upstaging, but I think she is already accustomed to being in last place.

At night, Charlie Sheen could replace Lawrence O’Donnell on The Last Word program. This isn’t as radical as it sounds. Neither one of these actors makes any sense nor nobody takes either one seriously. Their ramblings make Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi look like a Phi Beta Kappa scholar. I heard that O’Donnell claims to be a Socialist. Are there any provisions in the Socialist Party to expel such a weirdo?

I now sit back and await these changes, along with others that the network brass might come up with to help increase viewer ship. Watch out FOX, with these new proposed changes, you might lose .0003 percent of your viewing audience.

I know my day will go better.
