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...

Rich,

A brilliant comparison! This should be compulsory viewing for every American. I won't be because the truth hurts. One is left to wonder about the comparative crime rates though.

The first old building of Detroit presented here is in fact located in Warsaw, Poland at Waliców street. This building was part of the former small jew ghetto !!

No sir, it is not. I have my step daughter sending me a picture of her with a Detroit News newspaper...It's in an older area of Detroit.
