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...

Virginia Earthquake: The View From Baltimore

I was sitting on the grown out side the Mount Washington, Baltimore City, Maryland light rail station when the "quake" hit.  Honestly?  It wasn't much.  The local TV stations made it seem far worse than it was, and probably fed the hysteria.  I just a little shaking, with 2 very small aftershocks...I really thought I was suffering from the after affects of my recent concusion...I still get a little dizzy occasionally, so until I saw people walking out of the restaurants and businesses  in that area...I thought it was just me.
