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...

North Korea Threatens War...Again

Reuters is reporting that North Korea is threatening to attack South Korea...whose frigate, the NK's sank last week.  I hope that this is bombast, as NK tends to do something violent in order to deflect attention away from it's true intention...which I believe is to continue to develop a capable delivery system for it's nuclear weaspons program. 

Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, in a predictably mealy-mouthed statement said...nothing.
"We cannot allow this attack on South Korea to go unanswered by the international community," Clinton said after talks with Japanese Foreign Minister Katsuya Okada.  "So, we will determine our best options and send a clear, unmistakable message to North Korea regarding the international community's and most particularly, its neighbors' concerns about its behavior."  Clinton did not specify what sort of international action she would like to see.
Which means that we will "engage" NK in pointless talks that will lead nowhere.
