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...

AP Bans Use of "Ground Zero Mosque"

On Friday, the Associated Press distributed an email that forbids its writers from using the phrase "Ground Zero Mosque."  I guess they want to change the narrative again since a vast majority of the rubes (above 65%) are opposed to a 15 story mosque being built within sight of ground zero and named Cordoba house, the capital of muslim Al-Andalus (Spain).

I suppose they could call it the Rub-America's-Nose-in-it Center for Merry Jihadists. Nah, that's a little long. Besides, the Imam is a spiritual leader, not a political extremist. The name might bruise his gentle psyche.
