Nemo me impune lacessit

No one provokes me with impunity

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...

Geneology...

Cheri has been doing a great deal of researchf on our respective family trees, via Ancestry.com.  We purchased their $30 package through Sam's Club.  It's amazing what you can discover...just through what's available in the USA...for additional funds ($20 or so) you can get access to European sources...and a wealth of information.  I think it's worth it. 

Through just USA sources, we've been able to trace are respective family trees to...the 9th Century (the Bell family of Tennessee) and the 6th Century (Vail slash Bevill family)...WOW!
