    Maybe if you had a viable argument you would address it with me instead of being passive-aggressive?

    Oh yeah - "Mr.Nick can't read."

    Its a really dumb point then. Culture or the benefits of someones perception of culture is subjective.

    If there were actual slaves in Mississippi, then I could see the OPs point.

    Sounds like he is race baiting. Is that Culturally backwards ?

    I challenge you to find a single instance of jurisprudence in the entire history of this nation that supports this position. Otherwise, you cannot claim that your positions are factual, only that you wish they were.

    Also how in the hell do you get the notion that the Tenth Amendment nullifies the amendment process and precludes any further amendments?

    it matter not if Mississippi ratified it on day 1, ratified it years and years later... or never ratifies it.....

    it changes nothing.



    this is a non-issue... entirely.

    yes, that is the only point being made here..... a pretty shallow point, a pretty stupid point.... but it's the only point on the table.

    Somewhat, but this is a more consequential matter. It should have been a procedural process done with pride of correcting the wrong (as smaller consequential subjects also have happen to them), but of course, it is met with mockery now. On a much smaller level, North Dakota removed the poll tax language from its Constitution just this past fall.

    Mississippi failed to ratify freeing slaves for over a century and you think that the person not being pleased with that is the race baiter? You couldn't possibly be more assbackwards if you tried.
