I have been meaning to do this kind of page for a while now. Yes this is to cover my own ass, up to a point. Because of recent events this page is here for those foreign viewers who do not know what country this is that they are in. This a little history lesson. This below is courtesy of National Archives & Records Administration:

The Bill of Rights

During the debates on the adoption of the Constitution, its opponents repeatedly charged that the Constitution as drafted would open the way to tyranny by the central government. Fresh in their minds was the memory of the British violation of civil rights before and during the Revolution. They demanded a “bill of rights” that would spell out the immunities of individual citizens. Several state conventions in their formal ratification of the Constitution asked for such amendments; others ratified the Constitution with the understanding that the amendments would be offered.

On September 25, 1789, the First Congress of the United States therefore proposed to the state legislatures 12 amendments to the Constitution that met arguments most frequently advanced against it. The first two proposed amendments, which concerned the number of constituents for each Representative and the compensation of Congressmen, were not ratified. Articles 3 to 12, however, ratified by three-fourths of the state legislatures, constitute the first 10 amendments of the Constitution, known as the Bill of Rights.

See now you may or may not know something new. This bit below is my favorite:

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

You can click the I Agree link, which signifies you understand and agree with the concepts of this country. Or you can click I Disagree link and go on your merry way. A word of warning. I keep a record of ip address and know how to use them. For shits and giggles I may just start blocking every ip that clicks the I Disagree link. So choose wisely.

I Agree

I Disagree
