The states cannot pass any laws that conflict with the US Constitution or they can be stricken down. DUH
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.
Your comprehension of the Constitution is a mile wide and an inch deep. In other words, stick to truck driving for Airborne Express.
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>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.

<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?

Son, I know you're a right wing nut and have problems with facts and comprehension so let me see if I can clarify this down to your level....

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]

This is just asinine.

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.

2012 Dem gains were due to GOP candidates like Todd Akin and Richard Mourdoch, fascists who attacked women's rights and were rejected.
Coattails?? You're so FOS it's laughable.
Repugnants self destructed and were rejected, from the Magic 47% Mormon right down the line.
