Barbara "Ma'am" Boxer - The arrogance

Every time I listen to that video clip I get a little hot under the collar.

Oh the arrogance. This is an individual who has spent his whole career dedicated to protecting this country and her right to be freely elected to office.

To belittle a brigadier general making him address her by her title of honor brings to mind a passage in scripture.

Matthew 23:1-7,12

1Then Jesus spoke to the crowds and to His disciples,

2saying: "The scribes and the Pharisees have seated themselves in the chair of Moses;

3therefore all that they tell you, do and observe, but do not do according to their deeds; for they say things and do not do them.

4"They tie up heavy burdens and lay them on men's shoulders, but they themselves are unwilling to move them with so much as a finger.

5"But they do all their deeds to be noticed by men; for they broaden their phylacteries and lengthen the tassels of their garments.

6"They love the place of honor at banquets and the chief seats in the synagogues,

7and respectful greetings in the market places, and being called Rabbi by men.

12"Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.

Sen. Boxer Offers No Apology For Rebuking Brigadier General Who Called Her 'Ma'am'.
