    Yes, and have the pdf "bookmarked" near the top of th list for handy reference!

    Fascinating how men could write a document so well over 200 years ago to still have it relevant to today's issues.

    The crafters were Masons, and it is built on equality of men and tolorance. This is why it has stood the test of time.

    I've read it many times. I have no idea how half of the crap that happens in this country stands up to the word of the constitution. Screw this lberal change the words BS.
    NO it does not say the gov't can steal my money and gve it to welfare slime. Nowhere does t say that my money should be taken from me and given to someone who can't keep their legs crossed and multiplies like a damn rabbit.

    It is not a living document that should be changed.

    The problem we have today is that we have too many people and not enough work for them. This is where Europe was when they came to America and have been since.

    I don't like seeing someone not work for what they have either, but I don't like helpless children going without more, so I accept it. Furthermore, I know that if we did not have social programs. There would be other problems bigger than some of my tax dollars being spent on wellfare for the lazy and igorant.

    So why not just impose a reasonable spay neuter program for anyone that has one kid they can;t or will not pay for. Afterall the gov't is trying to force responsible dog owners who will pay for the pups they breed to do that.
    One kid you want gov't money for you are spayed or neutered or both. Save my tax dollars and enforce responsible breeding!

    If you want to pay for their spawn go for it. Just don't steal my money to do it.
    Use your own damn money and leave mine alone. I don;t work to pay for other people especially mutiplying like rabbit slime.

    Some Masonic literature quotes up to fifty signers of the Declaration of Independence were Masons, but only 9 can be confirmed by records. There is speculation that Jefferson was a Mason, but that cannot be proven or disproven. Revolutionaries that are known to have been Masons are Benjamin Franklin, John Hancock, Paul Revere, John Marshall, Joseph Warren, and John Paul Jones.

    Washington, Truman, FDR, and Andres Jackson were a few of the more notable Masonic presidents.

    What I find most interesting, is that Washington laid the cornerstone for the nations capitol in full Masonic regalia and ceremony.
