this is a wonderfuull and interesting website,ive always loved history.america is such a young country compared to the uk and most others. the american population is immigrant related and it was them who built that great nation. i dont know if i have american relations or not, my fathers family came from yorkshire england. that was the ringrows, and my mother is scottish. her maiden name was bell, and she came from dumfriesshire. that is southwest scotland,it would be interesting if i get feedback on this?, i wonder.

It is amazing how the 'system' can, and more often does, ignore the 'Bill of Rights', to the point of deceiving persons into believing there is nothing a pro se litigate can do about it. Thank you for your, 'spreading the truth', enabling us 'common people' to stand up for our rights. Happy 4th!

I was looking up your flag folding ceremonies and wanted to correct you on one point. The Official AF one or #3 CAN be used in an official ceremony. It is not in conflict with establishment rules. You are not establishing any religion, you are just mentioning it. When folks like you continue to perpetuate a "rumor", it scares folks from exercising their rights to use God and beliefs in ceremonies. Thank you for your time. Denice McDonald

I will ask your permission (using forms) to include your link and Associated Links. I design all my "Give Credit" Links with images from the websites.

We did find lots of other interesting information we didn't know were here. Thank You for all the time you must take to keep everything available and current.

I was only made aware of this sites existence a few moments ago when I was seeking information on the writings of Thomas Paine. My intentions are to use the material I find to both further my own knowledge and that of my conservitive friends and allies in the struggle to restore the constuitional democracy which we are gradually loosing to european socialism. I intend to give the name of the website to them so that that they may do the same.

Penns Landing is a collossal failure of missed opportunities, bad management, bad design and poor planning. Whoever has been mismanaging the development of Penn's Landing should be sent on permanent vacation deep deep down into the stygian depths of the Gulf of Mexico. Look at the Hyatt Hotel as an example of the absolute dim-wittedness of the corporate leadership of Penn's Landing. I'll bet not one member of the board today even knows why the Hyatt itself exemplifies the crapulous management of the Landing. Can any of you tell me what Philadelphia lost as the Landing was developed post WW2 in terms of the city's connection to the river? Can even one of you tell me what historic artifact should be the symbol of Penn's Landing and where there is a replica of it today? Can one of you even understand what I am asking here? Do you have a clue about the history of the site? Let's see how long it takes you to respond to this challenge. I'll bet you're not up to it. Why don't you prove me wrong. Come on. Let's see what you've got.

I can't speak to the neutrality concerning Philadelphia's history, but as to the American History on this sight, I find a very strong progressive bias. As always, when reading surveys of matters historical, do your homework by going back to read the primary sources from the time period being studied. Does what you are reading as "history" line up with what you read from the time period? "Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear." -- Thomas Jefferson

If the non-beleivers can't handle it "LET THEM GET THE HELL OUT" and go somewhere else where they do not have a flag. And where might that be? The only place I can think of is the devils house!
