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...

Clint Eastwood's Speech

It's a very simple speech.  Not eloquent in the Obama mode, but rather that of an ordinary man, who...once disappointed, won't ever make that mistake again.  In his own words,

An elegant speech from the heart.  You  don't hear those at political conventions...ever.  My hat is off to Mr. Eastwood, and I hope that Messers Romney and Ryan can, in the end, "retire" Mr. Obama from office ('retire' is the term Mr. Carter uses when describing the asswhoopin' he got in 1980).
