The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Happy Constitution Day

Cribbed from someone's EMail...
Any plans to celebrate the 222nd anniversary of our nation’s founding document on September 17 this year?

If not, it’s not too late to reacquaint yourself with the details of this historic record.

You can get a free copy of the pocket-sized publication “The U.S. Constitution & Fascinating Facts About It,” available in English or Spanish language editions.

The government sites below provide a wealth of information, training, and many other resources for people interested in exploring further.

Department of Defense Constitution Day and Citizenship Day:  links to the Constitution, promotional posters, a brief 15-20 minute on-line course, and a videotaped presentation featuring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, Retired Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.

National Archives:  The Charters of Freedom: Constitution of the United States.

Government Printing Office:  Constitution of the United States main page.

Library of Congress:  “The Federalist Papers” a series of 85 essays urging the citizens of New York to ratify the new United States Constitution.  The Federalist Papers are considered one of the most important sources for interpreting and understanding the original intent of the Constitution.

Unfortunately, many of today's youth possibly won't understand what you're asking. Here's a beauty from Oklahoma: 75% of OK HS students can't name our first president, let alone signers to or content of the Constitution. (Only 28% correctly identified the supreme law of the land, and in total only 3% would pass the standard immigration citizenship test at all, compared with 92% of newcomers).

Link and tremble:

Can't help but point out the coincidence of "family values" and "intelligent design" curriculum proponents in states where these sorts of statistics are rife.

Where is the real America again?
