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...

 I suspect that we can expect this list to grow significantly of the next 45 days.  Stocks are way down, and capital is fleeing  the country in near record amounts as investers seek to sock their few profits into accounts outside the country.  The real tip off will be when the MSM starts to sound the drumbeat of stories on evil rich people hiding their dollars...away from the "great and wise Oz Obama" who only wants them to "pay a little more."
