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...

Harry Reid Announces Inclusion of Public Option in Senate Bill

Unfortunately, he doesn't have even 50 he's merely pandering to the far left. Cynical would be my take, especially as he's in a very tight race for re-election. He'll be the 2nd Democratic Senate majority leader to lose his seat in the past decade and a half. That rather begs the question that perhaps Democrats shouldn't lead the Senate, n'est pas?
