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...

Can't Sleep...

From a reader...
One night, Obama was tossing restlessly in his White House bed. He awakens to see George Washington standing by him. Barrack asks him, "George, what's the best thing I can do to help the country?


"Set an honest and honorable example, just as I did," Washington advises, then fades away.

The next night, Obama is astir again, and sees the ghost of Thomas Jefferson moving through the darkened bedroom. Obama calls out, "Tom, please! What is the best thing I could do to help the country"

"Respect the Constitution, like I did," Jefferson advises, and fades from sight.

Barrack isn't sleeping well the third night when he sees another figure moving in the shadows. It is Abraham Lincoln's ghost. "Abe, what is the best thing I can do right now, to help the country?" Obama pleads.

Abe replies, "Go see a play.
