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...

Last week, my wife was diagnosed with melanoma.  While that's not one of the really bad ones, it's bad enough as it has metastasized.  We're getting hammered by the insurance demons already.  The costs are...mounting and since we've no savings (unemployment-underemployment over the past 2 years).  We're in a perilous position.

Tomorro, I'll be going to the Jewish Community Services and American Cancer Society...hopefully they'll be able to help.  If you can possibly afford to I humbly ask that you hit the tip jar to the right.
