Please interpret your meaning....what is "double wide"? And no, am alive and well in this world, observing and opining on some dumb thinking. I also write and speak English clearly, and easily understood.

Icky, I mean Nicky! Are you from Mars? Your stupidity is scaring me.
No, as mentioned above, am here, alive and well. Stupidity of mine should not scare you....the well intentioned comments way above should, but at least you show you can think....and call names. Now add something as to why this building should not be removed....

lets make it a win win wrote:
there are local groups that will purchase the historic house if the MMPW powers that be would set a price. The board of directors have been asked numerous times for a selling price with the land so the house can remain in its original location. None has ever been given. Justice Smith is becoming a signifcant figure in the lead-up to the rebellion against the British according to recent and ongoing research. It is highly important to keep this historical (yet altered) building in Mercersburg at its 260 year old site. The fire department needs a bigger space but according to its' charter it has to be in the Mercersburg area. Lets find a larger space for them that is accessible to major roads and infrastructure.
Oh yeah, right...so easy.....and where the hell is this "bigger space"

Okay Nicky, here it goes, the building should not be removed because it is the birthplace of the American Revolution. Do you know what that means? I doubt it and don't know why I waste my time. It is where we began as a nation (America) which is very important. History is not about memorizing dates and places. History is about understanding our past in order to understand our present and how we got from point A to point B. It's also about honoring the folks who got us from point A to point B.

Thank you, and I accept what you offer, but the seeds were in minds long before a meeting in this house. Regardless, it is so little known by anyone except perhaps local barber and some old timers, and the building itself is worse than a relic. Most of us do honor our past, and our people of the past.....we have thousands of memorabilia and buildings all about us. This place should not be one of them. Amen

Je*** Nicky, listen to yourself. You don't make any sense. It's important, but everything is important, therefore it's not important. Whaaat??
You are a danger to yourself and others. I hope you don't keep a firearm, if you did it would change my mind about the 2nd Amendment!

Ask yourself (scary), If the Irish are paying over $1.5 million to move and reconstruct the house in Ireland, how much of that are the "country boys" at the FC getting? I know because I have an in with one of the members of the FC. You would be shocked. They are being taken to the cleaners because the Irish know that they (the FC) have no options. Can you get your arms around that??

I'm a danger to myself, because I differ from you? A firearm...no, I don't keep one, so fear not for yourself or myself! My position was clearly stated, not like your first paragraph which is just accusitory. Battle with some others, perhaps you can sway them. And again, Amen.
