Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution - "Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States.

A big problem that has been around a long time is GREED. But now Corporate Greed is hurting people here and around the world. Corportations for the most part are there to make money and don't care about people even their own employees. And CEO greed and the greed of higher ups in many organizations and in government is sapping the life out of the middle class. Example: Walmart just pays its employees the least it can while the executives get millions. This forces many employees to apply for food stamps and welfare which results in taxpayers supporting Walmart's employees to the tune of billions of dollars taken from the taxpayers.


Another Idea that needs to be put into law is that Private and public organizations should not be permitted to sell information about you without your written permission.


What can we learn from the past? Is the Air and Water as Clean? Are people as Safe, Happy and Caring? Are our children Better Educated? Does America still stand for Life, Liberty, Justice and pursuit of Happiness for all? And can a man find a decent job that enables him to support his family? To learn from history ask questions. Example: Were people put first or profits? Were the greedy allowed to rule?

ALERT The Windows 10 computer Operating System has problems including spyware, and is not free, it is by subscription meaning you have to pay for it and upgrades. Even worse you are required to give them your personal information in which their license agreement states they may use everything in your computer including your personal information. There is a better alternative operating system, which is absolutely free, called Linux Mint. Linux Mint is a complete operating system which is FREE, DOWNLOADABLE, FREE OF VIRUSES, RUNS MOST PRINTERS, AND HAS AT LEAST 40,000 GOOD PROGRAMS WHICH ARE FREE OF CHARGE AND FREE OF VIRUSES. You can get it free at
Linux Mint Download
What is wrong with Windows 10? It is now a subscription for which you will have to pay to use or update. You are required to register it and in the process give your personal information which they then track. Also it has a user agreement that you must agree to that states that Microsoft may use everything in your computer. (That includes your personal information.) Read it yourself. Also it has spyware that spys on you. Many printer manufacturers have not released drivers for older printers forcing you to buy a new printer which has chips in the cartridges which force you to put in new cartridges before the cartridge is empty. Therefore they make more money on printer cartridges. Also the Feds can and do look at many US citizens personal computer information from Windows 10 machines and forbid Microsoft from telling you that they are doing it. Note there were 5,000 instances of this in the first few months after Windows 10 release. Microsoft is suing them in Federal court now.

Covington Peoria York History from authoritative sources
The Covington and York areas are part of the Genesee River basin through which the Genesee River flows. This Valley was known for Centuries by the locals with various names as Pleasant Valley in the last eight thousand or so years it has been covered with forests and has many small streams. The early peoples made canoes and used the rivers for transportation. It was easier to go by water that it was to try to walk through the dense wilderness. The area was a favorite hunting ground of the Seneca Indians who were the most powerful and warlike of the tribes forming the Iroquois Nation. The Indians have lived here for thousands of years having many wars and and bloody feuds. Sometimes they lived in peace. The women did much of the work besides planting and tending crops. The men would fish and hunt and kill those they did not like. Their culture was more warfare than peace so they had to be ready to fight and defend their tribe. They could show kindness and occasionally did but they did torture prisoners including settlers and missionaries and practiced cannibalism.
At first the Indians were in general friendly but as they were repeatedly abused and taken advantaged of, they had to fight. The Europeans broke every treaty they made with the Indians.
As more and more settlers moved West the Indians were forced to retreat. There were many bloody battles. Many innocent people died many people were taken as slaves. Sometimes children were taken and grew up in Indian Villages and did not know the European ways and grew up as Indians.

Covington is a township bordering York on its south west side. When York was formed it took part of Covington with it. The town was named after General Leonard Covington. The Town of Covington was created in 1817 from the Towns of Perry and Le Roy (in Genesee County). As of the census[3] of 2000, there were 1,357 people, 473 households, and 377 families residing in the town. (from Wikipedia) Area is Square Miles 26.1 with 16,704 acres.

The township of York has an area of 29,069 acres and a population in 1875 of 2483. (Doty 680) The town has good soil especially adapted to the culture of winter wheat (Doty 681) Greigsville on the south part of the Town contains one church and 22 houses. Piffard located in the southeast part of the town is situated on the Genesee Valley Canal and contains one church 23 houses a stream sawmill warehouses and stores. York Center is in the geographical center of the town. There are four churches in the village, several stores, a hotel, a furnace, and this was once a very busy and thriving Village. (Doty 681) The township itself has nine churches which includes two Presbyterian two Methodist one Baptist one Congregationalist, one Associated Presbyterian, one Associated Reformed Presbyterian, and one Reformed Presbyterian. In 1830 the York scientific and literary Institute was opened at York Center. This hosted 40 to 50 students. The study was about languages, mathematics and English. 681) (Doty p...)

Settlement started in the town in 1800 by several Scotch families among whom were Donald and John McKenzie, Angus McBean John and Alexander Fraser, Archibald Gillis, and John McCall. There were also Stewarts. These formed a colony of settlers from Scotland. (Doty 682) Ralph Brown who located here in 1808 purchased and owned the land where the village of York now stands. He built a small log house and opened it for the accommodation of Travelers. (Doty 682) In 1809 John Russ and his cousin John Darling started to build building a log cabin York. They were probably the first three people to build cabins in York.

The Olivet Cemetery is a jewel of history that has been around since about 1830. I live in Michigan so can't get to the deed office to check. Just a note about your historian. My great great grand parent and his family is buried in Olivet Cemetery. When I came here in May of 2016, I discovered that no one had indexed the burials or photographed the stones or made a list of locations. In fact no one knew much about it. Online there was next to nothing about it and the burials there. So I photographed every stone in Olivet Cemetery walking by row. When I got home to Warren Michigan I renamed each picture file and placed them in the order taken. Then I spent a few weeks making a list of who was buried where. I also made an alphabetical Index of all known stones. Then I made charts and a Quick finder. I placed all of this including the pictures on a Google Drive that can be shared with anyone interested. I shared this with the Covington United Presbyterian Church whose cemetery this really is. and with a few other people. That Google drive is also backed up by Google so is very safe. I started asking around and found very few persons are really interested in Covington-York history but a few people are especially those of us who have ancestors buried there.

I also noticed that no one has done a study of local residents in the 1800s so I began one to help those doing family research in this area. Because of time I have limited it to the Covington and York general areas. In the course of the study there was discovered families living in Pavilion, Gainsville etc. that should be included. Anyway that study is currently ongoing. Anyone who would like to add information feel free to contact me. I use wecare@macombhistory.us for my public email which I read at least weekly.

I will also make this web page into a resource page for people doing family research, and students and teachers interested in local history.

        Also there are many informative links on this page. I hope you find these educational, informative, interesting and fun.

The American's Creed "I believe in the United States of America, as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies."

If you want to go to war so much you rich politician then you go. Don't send me or my sons and daughters to be killed so you can make money. Most wars can be prevented with discussions. There are better ways to solve disputes than killing. In most wars the innocent die, the guilty and greedy get rich. If they launch the nuclear missiles we will all die. Lets plan and work on securing Peace between all. But still we must be Informed, Vigilant and we must be Prepared to defend our town and neighborhood because the army will not be there.

About the ideology of the men who performed the two attacks on the WTC and Pentagon, and the underwear bomber over Detroit, and the Times Square bomber, and the shoe bomber, and the Ft Hood killer as he shouted praise to Allah as he killed multiple people just to name a few of the hundreds of them. Look to see what book commands them to do this and what reward is promised. To see the truth about this ideology just look at human rights in countries they have taken over. Look at Women's and girl's rights. Look at girl's education and opportunity in their society. Do a Google search on "child brides" and honor killings. Look at how people are punished and for what. Look at "Freedom of Religion" in these countries. See what they do to non believers. See for yourself. You will discover there is a big difference in what they tell you their ideology does and what they really do in practice once they get a majority in a country.

  I did not include gorey videos or ones showing our men in pieces or the speech for the most part directed at the islamists responsible by men who just lost their friends. But you will have to forgive soldiers language because when you have just put your best friends body parts into a body bag one is not inclined to hold back ones feelings and expression of them in soldier language. I can assure you that the scenes you see here are only a glimpse of battle and what our men and women have gone thru is in many cases a lot worse than this for months on end. Remember each shot you hear could mean the end of a life for us or them. This is real real real not like the movies where actors get up and walk away.

This site states opinions which are also the opinions of most Americans. Political correctness often means censorship.

Easiest Language     Eo Our American Heritage is the Golden Rule practiced by most Americans for over 200 years.
Humans in communities across the United States and the world need a Code of Conduct for all Humans. That Code of Conduct should be: Bring no harm to another by your actions or inaction, Don't do to others what you would not want done to yourself. In other words Love one Another and Kindness needs to be the standard. This should be made the expectation of all human conduct. Those who seriously violate this or support those who deprive others of their full human rights, and those who support killing, should be deported to a DPI (deserted pacific island.) Rather than spend $25-35,000 a year each to wearhouse career criminals (about 1/5 of our state budget) let's ship them to a DPI(deserted Pacific island). This includes AIG executives and other greedy CEOs and bankers who forced many hard working families out of their homes. We need to create Ample For All not wealth for the greedy. We the working people are fed up with being exploited. We demand equal and fair treatment. We should get the same medical, and retirement as members of congress. No CEO or other officer of an organization should be allowed to receive more than 10 times the rate of the lowest paid employee.
For too long we have been complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that members Congress could retire with same pay after only one term and they specifically exempted themselves from many laws passed while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest was to Healthcare Reform ... in all its forms. So the elite are above law.

About health care. Have a knowledgeable team of non corporate and non politicans study the matter and find solutions.

It doesn't matter if they are Democrat, Republican, or Independent. Congress should be correcting and passing laws that serves and protects us citizens, not just the rich and special interest groups. We need an independent party of the people, not these rich guy clubs whose purpose is to fill their bank accounts with our hard earned money. While most of us struggle just to pay the bills, did you know congress just got another big raise in the thousands of dollars to go along with their free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, and unlimited paid sick days, (now that's welfare.) Perhaps we should throw them all out. A Constitutional Convention - this is a good way to do that. It is an idea whose time has come. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.
