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...

JournoList Successor Up & Running?

JournoList's successor seems to be up and running.  A large number of rerports covering the Glenn Beck rally, "Restoring America" are using the exact same phrasing to describe the rally in Washington, DC, yesterday.  Try googling the phrase "overwhelmingly white" and you'll get dozens of hits to articles describing the rally in front of the Lincoln Memorial.  When you throw in Google Maps giving directions to the FDR Memorial (when you put in the Lincoln Memorial)  you begin to think "collusion."

Salon's, Mark Benjamin,
Tea parties "overwhelmingly white"? A term that a peculiar number of articles seem to be using ... but no evidence of liberal collusion in the media here.
The Spokesman Review,
...Sarah Palin and other speakers at the “Restoring Honor” rally exhorted a sprawling and overwhelmingly white crowd to concentrate not on the history that...
The San Francisco Chronicles's Kate Zernike,
While the crowd at Dunbar was mostly African American, the audience at Beck's rally was overwhelmingly white, though a number of speakers and performers ...
The Washington Post's Amy Goldstein and Carroll Morello,
... Sarah Palin and other speakers at the "Restoring Honor" rally exhorted a sprawling and overwhelmingly white crowd to concentrate not on the history that ...
Now, doesn't that sound like collusion to you?  When you have this many diseparate news organizations using the exact same phrasing, then it's called propaganda and conrolling the narrative.  That's exactly what JournoList did and its successor seems to up and running already.
