Pave Paradise, And Put Up A Parking Lot

And continue to screw with history.

I continue to read about radical Islamists destroying history in the Middle East.  And revisionists here at home toppling over (or digging up) and destroying history of the Confederacy.

Now this:

A building where the Bill of Rights is believed to have been born was partially demolished. 

 Fox- 

A building where the Bill of Rights is believed to have been born was partially demolished.

It was a historic mistake.

A Pennsylvania building believed to be the birthplace of the Bill of Rights was partially demolished earlier this month because developers didn’t know the origin of the site.

The building, originally known as the James Bell Tavern, hosted a meeting in 1788 of anti-Federalists opposed to the ratification of the new nation’s Constitution. The group began calling for changes to the document, and their plea was eventually heard when the Bill of Rights was adopted in 1791.

But while several documents from the original 1788 meeting are preserved, and the tavern was initially deemed qualified for listing on the National Register of Historic Places, a formal designation wasn’t sought.

“Whether intentional or by error in 1995, the Bell Tavern was not listed as an historic, protected building on the Township’s Cultural Features Map and Historic Buildings List referred to in our zoning ordinance,” a news release from Silver Spring Township officials said.

That decision proved costly.

So, government stupidity, ineptitude, incompetence, confusion, lack of respect for history, bad judgment, etc., led to the demolishing of the birthplace of the Bill of Rights.

That sounds about right.

Yeah, I’m certain it was just an innocent mistake.

Refresh my memory, which of the First Ten Amendments are still being enforced?

First – no, Second – definitely no, Fourth – no, Fifth – no, Sixth – no, Seventh – no, Eighth – no, Ninth – no, Tenth – no

Third – maybe.  The jury is still out on a couple incidents.
