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...

WeinerGate: Even Adolf's Pissed!

great video:

Hitler Upset About Weinergate from FTR Radio on Vimeo.

The epitaph about Anthony Weiner isn't that he wass arrogant..but rather that he was stupid enough to think that he could lie to everyone...and get away clean, without having to pay for his stupidity.  He may well survive in Congress, merely by hanging on, tooth and nail, but he will never serve any where else.  If he does survice this, hopefully, his constituents will have the sense enough to vote his sorry ass out of office in 2012.  I doubt it, but hope never ceases.

Richard Fernandez has this to say:
Going for the big time requires the ability to maintain discipline and focus in a pitiless environment. Weiner, Trump implied, had showed that he had neither. The Congressman badgered him for donations, and he might have gotten them had he shown his quality. After Weiner self-destructed, Trump concluded it was obvious he lacked a certain something. “I thought his career was so important to him. The fact is that what he was doing was more important to him.” And that, in the calculus of power, was his greatest fault. He took his eye off the ball. Weiner could therefore rattle his tin cup somewhere else, somewhere in the bush leagues.
