    Which is exactly part of the point. Our leaders are no longer protecting and defending the Constitution and the American way of life. The framers put that language in there for a reason, and it is the rules we live by. The document isn't that big nor that difficult to understand. Every Legislator, Vice President, and President should be reading it on a daily basis until they can recite it. These people all need some mandatory training in which they read the U.S. Constitution and some of the other relevant documents. Snubbing their noses at it is simply wrong.

    By the way, it is a lame excuse when someone explains their actions by saying they did it too.

    OK. I'll use the one you posted. The one where it said the base word was vice-roy, vice ambassador. I'll use that one.

    I never posted that... I see the problem, your imagination clouds your ability to see reality. You must liberal The only reference I posted was to the Toba Volcano eruption and how it nearly eliminated mankind. There were roughly 5,000 people left in the world and we all have our roots based in those people.

    Might I suggest a little light reading for you.

    The Constitution of the United States of America Start with Article 1. Also note that Article 2 talks to the President.

    Allow me to help further. From your reference to Wiki Vice
    Vice is a practice or a habit [disambiguation needed] considered immoral, depraved, and/or degrading in the associated society. In more minor usage, vice can refer to a fault, a defect, an infirmity or merely a bad habit. Synonyms for vice include fault, depravity, sin, iniquity, wickedness and corruption. The modern English term that best captures its original meaning is the word vicious, which means "full of vice". In this sense, the word vice comes from the Latin word vitium, meaning "failing or defect". Vice is the opposite of virtue.

    Vice is also a generic legal term for criminal offenses involving prostitution, lewdness, lasciviousness and obscenity. Illegal forms of gambling are also often included as a vice in law enforcement departments that deal with gambling as a crime.
    And here is the link on Dictionary.com Vice

    There isn't anything implying this may be a term used to describe Royalty.

    Thanks for the info, but it was irrelevant to the reference/joke that I made.

    Which was that if one believes the story of Adam & Eve, that God created them and they were the first people on earth, then everybody in existence today descended from them in some fashion. Pretty simple.

    What a fool.

    You disparage someone for not posting a scholarly reference, and then cite an online encyclopedia and dictionary.

    You wouldn't know a scholarly paper even if it was put down in the bottom of your cage.

    Then vote them out of office. I'm pretty sure the framers addressed this too.

    It's also pretty lame to complain about a person's actions when you didn't complain about the same or similar actions of prior persons.

    Appointing "czars"

    Misunderstanding simple english..... Things like that.

    But it shows that isn't far from the truth. If you were able to follow the ancestry back that far we wold find that we all have some common ancestors why back in time.

    Here you go. By default, if a czar is just another word for king, then any other word for czar would also mean king? correct?

    Main Entry: czar
    Part of Speech: noun
    Definition: expert, animate or inanimate
    Synonyms:
    CEO, arbiter, aristocrat, bible, big cheese, big shot, big wig, boss, brains, brass, buff*, city hall, connoisseur, czar, egghead, establishment*, exec, executive, expert, feds, front office, governor, guru, ivory dome, judge, king, kingfish, kingpin, law*, power elite, pro, professional, professor, pundit, scholar, specialist, textbook, top brass, top dog, top hand, upstairs, veteran, virtuoso, whiz, wizard

    By answering yes: wizards, governors, the front office, CEO's, big shots, veterans are all royalty also, and are also all kings.

    By answering no: then you have eventually agreed that a word may have 2 separate meanings, and the word czar CAN but does not ALWAYS mean nobility. Thus making this entire thread another example at why you should never be able to breed or interact with human kind.
    Now will you shut up.

    According to Wikipedia, Chief is a Title of Nobility too...

    So. I have a question I guess. Whether your an obama supporter or not, that's irrelevant. Does anyone else is this thread other thab scareblow give a schit if the president uses the term czar? I guess I don't care because almost every president has found ways to tip toe around the constitution.
