HOPEFULLY YOU VOTED IN THE NATIONAL ELECTIONS!
Fact: The independence of the United States of America was ratified by all States when the First Constitutional Convention adjourned at 4:00PM on September 17, 1787 in Independence Hall in Philadelphia, PA. (Source: Campion database #377) This date is celebrated as "Constitution Day", or "Citizens Day."
A Timely Historic Event
"The convention [first] met at Annapolis, [MD] with delegates from five U.S. States, on September 11, 1786. The representation was so partial that no action was taken, other than to urge the appointment of commissioners from all the States, to meet in Philadelphia, on the second Monday of the next May, to consider such measures as were necessary' to adapt the Federal Constitution to the exigencies of the Union." Excerpt from Volume II of "The Great Republic by the Master Historians", edited by Hubert H. Bancroft in the early 1900s.
Present, were "Alexander Hamilton and Egbert Benson of New York; Abraham Clark, William C. Houston, and James Schuarman of New Jersey; Tench Coxe, of Pennsylvania; George Read, John Dickinson" (Chairman), "Richard Bassett of Delaware; and Edmund Randolph, James Madison, Jr., and Saint George Tucker of Virginia"

PROBLEMS EMAILS (SPAM)
The Internet is full of problems and irritations that we need to learn to deal with by ourselves. At this time, there is no "government service" that will remedy the situation. If we demand that government "do something" about SPAM, then the only way they can control it is to control the Internet. Such a service would NOT be FREE, as all government services not only charge us money (taxes, fees, etc.), but institute rules and regulations, which only law-abiding citizens obey! (End of soapbox) You can recognize these emails by their frequent use of improper grammar, misspelled words and typos. Honest! The following are from REAL emails.

Somehow, you got on a list that linked with those who delight in sending such emails. The original source may have been the result of carelessness on the part of a reputable Internet business, the result of a well-meaning friend who believed the scam, or a purchased list.
There are no simple answers in how to remove your email address from such lists. One way NOT to spread your email address to yet more lists is simply: DO NOT RESPOND TO ANY UNSOLICITED EMAILS! If you do answer, even to tell them to remove you from their lists, you confirm that the address is functional, and it will then be sold to yet another list. Chances are that the return address processes your response, and then your response is returned to you marked "undeliverable". Simply delete the above emails, after blocking them through your email software. *
If you have one, two, or all of the letters, "s", "e", or "x" in your email address, a blanket sending by a spammer will find you (everyone is free to do searches on the internet).
Another option is to change your email address, leaving no forwarding address, and informing only those people you wish to correspond with. Ultimately, a blanket sending will probably find you again.
*An option for those of you who prefer to clean up your email yourself. This takes time, however after awhile, it becomes very effective: Utilize the blocking or filtering function of your email program, and each time a noxious email comes in, apply a filter or a block to that email address, or a few words of content, and automatically send it straight into the trash folder. Remember to empty your trash each time you exit the program. This also works with the emails that contain viruses (you may notice that some viruses come from the (non-existent) same email address).
