What I want to know is who stole the cornerstone of our government?

...and where are the socialists hiding it?

I know it's OT, but I was quite surprised a few years ago to be sitting in a movie theater and one of the previews was a commercial inviting people to explore becoming a Free Mason. I figured that they must be falling on hard times, lol. So, they do in fact 'recruit' in some ways.

You must still ask a Freemason in order to be considered for membership. A Mason won't come right out and ask you to join them. Even once you ask, you must wait until the Lodge considers you and they vote to approve you or not.

To return to the original question, a block of marble from the Temple of Concord in Rome, was once embedded in the base of the Washington Monument in Washington D.C. It was a gift from Pope Pius IX, and was stolen on March 6, 1854. No one was ever convicted of the theft, but members of a nativist political party were suspected. The stone may have been broken into pieces, or may have been thrown into the Potomac River.

Where are the cornerstones?

Research on the web does not corroborate the statement:See the following: (as of 12/3/2010)

Brad Meltzer’s DECODED – Missing White House Cornerstone Mystery » Right Juris

"They think", "plausible explanation" ~ Still sounds like no-one knows where it is... i.e. it's still missing

Crap people, you wanna argue over the Masons? Start a new thread please....

plwht, I see you watched that show also. Yes, the cornerstones of both the White House and the US Capitol are missing but they have not been stolen they are still in their original location, they just can't find them and I think that this is the conclusion that that show came to. As a member of Scottish Rite Freemasons in Washington DC and a member of the House of the Temple in Washington DC, all of that has been explained and that information can be found in the libraries of the House of the Temple.

Somewhere over the Rainbow, likely had to do with crossing these mountains, and perhaps the rain that falls in the area as well ( Getting over the weather).
Actually, the arch in St. Louis was built to advertise the riverboat McDonald's to travelers on the nearby interstate. After building one golden arch, they ran short of funds for the next one. So, the Arch Deluxe sandwich was invented (proof-there was only one arch on its packaging). When that flopped, it was sold to the government, who stripped the yellow paint and opened it to tourists.
