Do you have any clue as to the functioning of the Supreme Court??
That's the court that declared Obamacare Constitutionally acceptable, and declared Jim Crow Laws unConstitutional.(1954)
This is just another version of Jim Crow.

Section 4 is the constitution. Good grief we need to do something about education system in this country.

I would not take a class with this professor its one thing to combat racists laws but you cannot take away someone choice so f'ing get over your selves you have a PHD and you worry about racism well news flash what does a white person who is qualified for the position and they do not get the chance because a Black person who is not qualified gets the job what is that revenge reverse racism only Blacks can be treated unfairly because of their color Though racism is more covert today, blacks are subject to the same prejudice as they were in the 1960s, Duke University sociology professor Eduardo Bonilla-Silva argued in a lecture on Thursday. Bonilla-Silva said a new form of racism has emerged, replacing Jim Crow racism.

“We are not post-racial,” he said.“This ideology is suave but deadly.” Focusing on relations between whites and blacks, Bonilla-Silva said the latter’s current economic status has remained the same in recent decades, even as the forms of subordination and racism have since evolved.
After describing various ways in which this ideology is prevalent in today’s society, Bonilla-Silva presented three main points about color-blind racism: the forms of interpreting racism, rhetorical strategies for articulating racism and stories contextualizing racism.

Bonilla-Silva said whites believe that they are not racist and often use the election of President Barack Obama to support the claim that America has moved beyond its racially tense past. He said these beliefs are “sincere fictions” and countered that blacks and other racial minorities are still behind whites in society, receiving inferior education in “so-called integrated” schools and colleges.
what is it that these Non whites who are Black when it suits their purpose
his job should be to fill the gaps left out by the racist liberal teachers bitching about racism when you have a PHD it must be a Player Hater Degree

<quoted text> Homer get a clue. When Virginia seceded from the US half stayed in. That part was still Virginia. The dully elected legislature voted to change the name. No new state was created because that part of Virginia still belonged to the USA. The other half of Virginia belonged to the CSA.
Also if it was 'still Virginia' why the name change?

The vote of the American people? Where is former President Gore these days?
The President and Vice President are elected by Electoral College "Electors". Unless your daddy was a president, then the Supreme Court elects you.
And have the electors every not voted the will of the voters or have they changed the outcome of a presidential election?

Flack's argument was that state legislators can take away the right to a popular vote. It had nothing to do with the electoral college. But nice try, Weakheart.
Who was the only President to be elected by electors only??
Can't take away something they never had. The governor can appoint them. They can draw straws. In fact the 17th amendment should be repealed along with the 16th.

<quoted text>lol! No son. The primary function of the US Coast Guard at it's birth was lighthouses and lifesaving.
Talk about a lack of eduction, you sure do take it to the next level!
The United States Coast Guard (USCG) is a branch of the United States Armed Forces and one of the country's seven uniformed services. The Coast Guard is a maritime, military, multi-mission service unique among the U.S. military branches for having a maritime law enforcement mission (with jurisdiction in both domestic and international waters) and a federal regulatory agency mission as part of its mission set. It operates under the Department of Homeland Security during peacetime, and can be transferred to the Department of the Navy by the President at any time, or by Congress during time of war.

Created by Congress on 4 August 1790 at the request of Alexander Hamilton as the "Revenue Marine", it is the United States' oldest continuous seagoing service (The United States Navy lists its founding as 1775, for the formation of the Continental Navy. However, that was disbanded in 1785, and the modern U.S. Navy was founded in 1794). As Secretary of the Treasury, Hamilton headed the Revenue Marine, whose original purpose was that of a collector of customs duties in the nation's seaports. By the 1860s the service was known as the United States Revenue Cutter Service and the term Revenue Marine gradually fell into disuse.[5] The Coast Guard was formed from the merger of the Revenue Cutter Service and the United States Life-Saving Service on 28 January 1915. As one of the nation's five armed services, the Coast Guard has been involved in every war from 1790 to Iraq[6] and Afghanistan.[7] As of 2012 the Coast Guard had approximately 42,000 men and women on active duty, 7,900 reservists, 32,000 auxiliarists, and 8,700 full-time civilian employees.[2]

The Federal Government cannot pass any law that conflict with the Constitution or it can be struck down.
They can pass any law they want and enforce it until the Federal or even the State Courts(for state laws) say it is UN-Constitutional.
This is like telling someone they cannot speed even though their car goes 140MPH "Ya Right"
So in essence any stupid law can be passes, sad but true.

In Obama’s America, Worse is the New Normal

Since the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008, we have been less rich, and our stupidity ought in theory to be less affordable. Instead, it’s been supersized.

To take only the most obvious example, President Obama has added six-and-a-half trillion bucks to the national debt, and has nothing to show for it.

As Churchill would say, had his bust not been bounced from the Oval Office, never in the field of human spending has so much been owed by so many for so little.

Meanwhile, the ranks of Obamacare victims grows as insurance companies like Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield send letters to say,“To meet the requirements of the new laws, your current plan can no longer be continued beyond your 2014 renewal date.”

Beyond the president’s characteristically breezy lie that “if you like your health-care plan, you will be able to keep your health-care plan” is the sheer nuttiness of what’s happening.

For years, Europeans and “progressive” Americans have raged at the immorality of the U.S. medical system: All those millions with no health coverage!
But so many are now being dropped and have no insurance because of what Obama calls “universal health care”.

The CBO’s most recent calculations estimate that in 2023, a decade after the implementation of Obamacare, there will still be over 30 million people uninsured — or about the population of Canada. That doesn’t sound terribly “universal,” and I would bet it’s something of a low-ball figure: As many employers are discovering, one of the simplest ways “to meet the requirements of the new laws” and still stay just about solvent is to shift your workers from family plans to individual plans, and tell their spouses and children to go look elsewhere.

Does Obamacare achieve its other goal of “containing costs,” already higher than anywhere else?

No. Avik Roy reports in Forbes that Obamacare will increase individual-market premiums by 62 percent for women, 99 percent for men. In America,“insuring” against disaster now costs more than you’d pay in most countries for disaster.

No one has ever before attempted to devise a uniform health system for 300 million people — for the very good reason that it probably can’t be done.

Britain’s National Health Service serves a population less than a fifth the size of America’s and is the third-largest employer on the planet after the Indian National Railways and the Chinese People’s Liberation Army, the last of which is now largely funded by American taxpayers through interest payment on federal debt.

A single-payer U.S. system would be bigger than Britain’s NHS, India’s railways, and China’s army combined, at least in its bureaucracy.

So, as in banking and housing and college tuition and so many other areas of endeavor, Washington is engaging in a kind of under-the-counter nationalization, in which the husk of a nominally private industry is conscripted to enforce government rules — and ruthlessly so, as many others are discovering.
