There were several companies that were doing business with Nazis. Some big names like Chase bank, Standard Oil, Kodak, Ford, and the one Prescott Bush was helping to run, Union Banking Corporation or UBC. He was also on the board of at least a couple of the "front companies" that UBC had set up to help fund Nazi Germany and Hitler, like steel corporations in Europe, under various names. Eventually UBC, it's front companies and their assets were seized under the "Trading with the Enemy" Act. But an awful lot of money had already flowed from Germany to the US by the time that happened. It is speculated that a large portion, possibly even a majority of the Bush fortune was made during the 1930s and 40s from Prescott's dealings with the Nazis. Fun Fact: Prescott Bush was also a Skull n Boner

Very much so and for many years.. I've read ties back to Nazi Germany, not sure how much is true of course. Even so, he is no king.
It's well documented actually, not even hard to find.... look up Prescott Bush (George Senior's father). He helped facilitate banking/finance/nest egg stuff which helped the Nazis
Thank you!! Like I stated, I had never heard of the title before and was wondering if I was actually reading it correctly on the screen. I have heard of Most Reverend before but had forgotten about ot until you just mentioned it. I grew up with step siblings who were Catholic and gained most of my Catholic knowledge from them. I was just pretty excited to find out that somebody actually has that title! I approve!

In the Anglican & Catholic Church The Very Revered is a common title.
Other tiles include The Right Reverend and if you are a Archbishop the tile is Most Reverend.
Here endeth the lesson.

He was a President of the US. He gets a nice funeral. If you think this was "kingly" you ought to have seen Kennedy's. IMO this funeral is not particularly ostentatious. If you are butt hurt over this you really need to get over it.
