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...

Occupy Wall Street: The Real Difference Twixt OWS & The Tea Party

While reading a post on instapundit last night,
I saw this comment (all emphasis is mine, Ed.): “Democratic commentator Bob Beckel recently compared the disparity between the Tea Party’s treatment by local governments and the Occupiers’ to one person getting a better deal on a car than another. Imagine an America where basic equalities and a God-given right to public self-expression are reduced to clearance-sale status, depending on the agenda and whims of the ‘bosses’ on duty at a given time.” That example — government as used-car salesman — captures both the ethos and the performance of Beckel and his ilk. The truth is, these people get a pass because, as client groups of the Democratic Party, they’re exempt from the enforcement of the law. This may make people who aren’t so favored wonder why they should pay taxes to, or obey the commands of, a system that doesn’t follow the law itself. Well: Why should they? Where’s the legitimacy?
That's the real problem. Neither the MSM nor the Democratic Party controlled municipalities are holding the OWS "movement" to the same level of responsibility that they have held the Tea Party to...when nearly 1,000,000 people showed up in Washington DC for the largest Tea Party rally, not one rape occured...yet in the past 6 weeks, dozens have happened in New York's Zuccotti Park. It's so bad, they've had to erect a "women's tent."
Zuccotti Park, the home of the "Occupy Wall Street" protesters, is so overrun by sexual predators attacking women in the night that organizers felt compelled to set up a female-only sleeping tent to keep the attackers away. The large, metal-framed "safety tent" -- which will be guarded by an all-female patrol -- can accommodate as many as 18 people and also will be used during the day for women-only meetings, organizers said Friday. "This is all about safety in numbers," according to Becky Wartell, 24, a protester from Portland, Maine. The safety measure came amid a terrifying spree of sexual assaults -- including an alleged rape -- in the Zuccotti Park camp.
Because the OWS "protesters" are a Democratic client, they are permitted to act in any manner they desire. For all the ranting the MSM did about the Tea Party movement...I've come to the firm opinion that it was all about liberals projecting their thoughts and desires and actions on what they would do in similar situations...and that's whats actually occuring now all accross the country. If the Tea Party movement had acted in the horribly irresponsible and lawless manner that the OWS "movement" is, the MSM would be shrieking for it to be suppressed in the most violent manner...
