    I know, but then I guess thats the reason why the constitution is what it is (if what some of my american friends say is true).

    I was going to give a smartass answer, but I'm pretty sure it would have been deleted inside of 20 minutes anyway, so why bother.

    I'd protest if they deleted a reply from one of my posts.
    Say what you feel, tell me what you believe, and even if I don't like what you say, I like that our country allows us the freedom.

    Scroll down the page and see censorship at work.

    My point is, left or right, it's 2 sides of the same coin.

    Actually, ummm they said the person had posted inaccurate information! I wouldn't call that censorship, I would actually call that researching the truth.

    Had it been a leftie that said this, then it would have been censorship.

    Media is owned, and owners hate to lose readership by pissing them off.

    I'm done with your left sided b.s.! You have no proof of this... just speculation.

    I'm not sure, but I'd assume it's hemp. At least it should be if it isn't.

    None of the Above-
    http://www.usconstitution.net...

    The Declaration, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights are currently housed in the National Archives. All three are written on parchment, not hemp paper. Parchment is treated animal skin, typically sheepskin. The Declaration was inked with iron gall ink. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory was commissioned to create a system to monitor the physical status of all three. The Charters of Freedom Monitoring System took digital photos of each sheet of parchment in 1987, each document divided into one-inch squares. Over time, the photos are retaken and compared to the original to look for signs of deterioration. Before the charters were recently reencased for display, a small tear in the Declaration was repaired by adding Japanese paper to the gap. This is the only paper in any of the documents. It is, then, inaccurate to say that any of these documents was written on hemp.

    Actually, it's a little known fact that Americans try to bury, but it was actually written on the tanned skin of a slain British soldier.

    Was the tanning a side effect of them cooking him? =p
