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...

Riley's Gone Too...

My wife and I came home from work tonight...expecting the usual yips and yaps from our remaining dog Riley...but he wasn't in the window looking for us...and he didn't answer us when we opened the front door as he usually does...we found him dead and cold next to his favorite spot...his too small dog bed...dead.

Riley was and odd duck...he always had to have a pillow of some sort....

Riley and "The Mommy"...relaxing on the futon...Riley has his pillows...but both Radar and Riley are together again.  Riley just never was the same after Radar died last November...mostly he was just sad....

They Boys in better times...trolling for food...Riley & Radar, together at last.
