    How much time do you have? Seriously, that's a very good question for which I have no answer. Your local library maybe? Perhaps our President... err... good friend, Reca can help. Reca? Hey, I just noticed your rep power... it's in the red. Uh, oh... this can't be good.

    I was just thinking, what if we were being invaded by the Aussies rather than our no hablo Pablo from south of the border? I'd much rather hear "G'day mate" that "no habla."

    I'm with Stan, at least Steve is willing to assimilate into American society and learn our ways, that is half the battle. He can be our own Paul Hogan or Steve Irwin if you will. In time he will learn to spell correctly but at least he speaks 'English' and we can understand him for the most part. And we all have accents in one form or another so thats no big deal, either.

    I'm going to be nice this time around- I figure my karma tank is low.

    Here's a good, basic site that covers the US Constitution.

    The virtue of spirit has no need for thanks or approval. Only the certain conviction that what has been done is right. -Jor El, as played by Marlon Brando

    You'll know when the Ausies invade they start by taking all the Bar jobs serving drinks. If you don't believe me go to london UK there everywhere. Every bar we went into had an Aussie working there.

    Hey, if you start learning about the constitution and stuff you are going to be quite a few years ahead of our average high school graduate. I am not sure if that is fair to the general populace. On a different note, are you planning on being a cop in the US? Let me know where you go... I am from NY living in NC and I get hasseled all the time for my accent. I'd love to know how they react to you.

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.

    You can find a fair amount of information through the National Archives. They have a very good series of sites starting at http://www.archives.gov/national-arc...freedom_1.html that explains how several of the fundamental documents in US history came about, and includes transcriptions of the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution and Bill of Rights, among others.
