    Huey Rider: Sir; reminder

    https://constitutioncenter.org/blog/on-this-day-congress-proposes-the-bill-of-rights-to-the-states

    The first session of the First Congress lasted 210 days. Much talk at that session since early June was about a proposal made by James Madison in the House about adding by amendment a list of individual rights to the Constitution agreed to in Philadelphia about two years earlier.

    During three months of debate, Congress would finally settle on a final list of rights to present to the states. Some amendments on Madison’s initial list didn’t make the final cut in September. The House first agreed on a version of the Bill of Rights that had 17 amendments, and later, the Senate consolidated the list to 12 amendments.

    Madison was then part of a conference committee that reconciled the differences between the two proposals. The committee’s version of the Bill of Rights mostly followed the Senate version, and the compromise had been passed by two-thirds of the House as required.

    And the ignorant masses have been working at destroying that hard earned list, ever since. :mad:

    Even the 10 Commandments, carved in stone, could not stand the test of time against the overwhelming stupidity and avarice of mankind.:oops::oops:

    Can we imagine "Ike" and "Nikki" Khrushchev setting down for a talk?
    Nikki beating on the table with his fist and screaming threats. Old General Ike smoking his pipe and petting his Bird Dog. :usa2:
