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...

Ann Coulter Smacks Down Eliot Spitzer

Earlier today, Ann Coulter verbally smacked down disgraced former governor, Elliot Spitzer on CNN.  I'd love to have the video, but can't figure out how to post it from CNN.  Here's a partial transcript: 

SPITZER: Have you ever made, have you been in business?
ROBERTS: Not myself.
SPITZER: You don’t understand how these capital allocation decisions are made. You really don’t.
ROBERTS: Okay, sorry, how many of President Obama’s actual, of which he now only has one left, Mr. Geithner from his original team, they all have left, how many of them actually did businesses themselves? Very few of them. Most of them were academics. So don’t just attack people simply because they think differently than you do.
COULTER: What business have you ran? You’re a governor.
COULTER: You’ve been in politics your whole life. You’re haranguing us. “If you were a businessman.” This is the strangest conversation I’ve ever seen.
SPITZER: No, Ann, because you’re making statements that are so completely counter-factual...
ROBERTS: I'm a historian. I didn't live in ancient Rome but I can still write about it.
SPITZER: You're statements about the economy are simply counter-factual, contrary to every piece of evidence…
COULTER: You’re right, you’re right, the economy is just booming right now. That Keynesian economics Obama gave us has been a delight.
Go watch the video!
