His point which you missed as you usually miss most people's points is the the electoral college has never gone against the voter's of each state to change the outcome of a presidential election.

"Shutdown #6: Higher pay, fewer abortions

When did it take place? Sept. 30 to Oct. 12, 1979
How long did it last? 11 days
Who was president? Jimmy Carter
Who controlled the Senate? Democrats, 58-42; Robert Byrd was majority leader
Who controlled the House? Democrats, 277-158; Tip O'Neill was speaker
Why did it happen? The House wanted to raise congressional and senior civil servant pay by 5.5 percent, which the Senate opposed. The lower house also wanted to limit federal abortion spending to cases where the mother's life was in danger, while the Senate wanted to keep funding in cases of rape, incest, and when the mother's health is in serious jeopardy. The dispute was not resolved before a partial shutdown.
What resolved it? The House got its pay increases but had to allow abortion funding in cases of rape or incest (but not when the mother's health, rather than life, was in danger). The latter was a slight tightening of the previous year's Medicaid abortion compromise."

The President and Vice President are elected by Electoral College "Electors". Unless your daddy was a president, then the Supreme Court elects you.
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??
Yeah

<quoted text>The Confederacy was never recognized, so those states did not officially secede in the eyes of the Union, ergo West Virginia was created from parts of Virginia which makes it unconstitutional.
Wrong again Homer but it's ok. You will get it right eventually. By the way. What part of the dully elected legislature (of Virginia) voted to change the name don't you understand? So if anything Virginia should be required to change to West Virginia. But we don't want them.
Yeah

That's the court that declared Obamacare Constitutionally acceptable, and declared Jim Crow Laws unConstitutional.(1954)
This is just another version of Jim Crow.

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?

I realize you have a tough time comprehending things, I was talking also talking about voting 'requirements', guess everything needs to be spelled out to you morons. States just can't disregard the Constitution and do whatever the fck they want, why have a Constitution then?
