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...

The Great 2011 Debate

J P Bender

So the first 2012 presidential GOP debate is now history – and nobody other than the Fox News Network were dupes to cover this charade. It is a darn shame that the Republican Party has lost its way and given us such a sorry lot to select from in the 2012 primary. As for me…it is “Boot Newt”, “Dump Trump” and “Make Hominy out of Romney”. Most of the rest are lightweights and just more of the same. I might be able to support someone like Gov. Daniels, of Indiana, if he had someone like Sen. John Thune on the ticket as VP. Oh for an independent candidate who has the qualities and character of Ronald Reagan or Harry Truman? God knows our country needs someone like that to lead us out of the mess the clowns in both parties have gotten us into.
