well that was a stupid question we are conquered
A comment I made elsewhere [well here but not in this post] that maybe belongs as its own post and maybe expanded on a bit [ahem] :
You know Bush Sr. was knighted by the Queen of England? While he was in freaking office?
That is expressly in violation of the Constitution which outlaws titles.
“No title of nobility shall be granted by the United States: and no person holding any office of profit or trust under them, shall, without the consent of the Congress, accept of any present, emolument, office, or title, of any kind whatever, from any king, prince, or foreign state.”
[American citizens accepting titles from the queen of England by the way include U.S. President Ronald Reagan, U.S. President George Bush, New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, entertainer Bob Hope, U.S. Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf, Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, and Microsoft Guru Bill Gates to name a few. Think about that next time you are considering Giuliani for president. He is a subject of England. By choice.]
It is appalling the president of the United States of America would kneel to the head of a foreign nation to receive a title of servitude.
More appalling two presidents would do it. Which they damn well did.
*at least he was only knighted that cannot be passed down and fuck me, i bet half the people in this country are too ignorant to know what the Constitution even says and would think it is an honor to be given a title by a foreign soveriegn and a reason to vote for someone, how freaking embarassing
