    The BS started officially started in 1910. The first black BS troop was 1911. Seems to me the Boy Scout organization was cutting edge.

    Since this is not what's happening, your point is irrelevant.

    It's even worse when you suggest that the powers of congress are somehow above and beyond the rights of the people.

    Well, no actually. As with most things, that doesn't stop me from being an expert.

    Wrong again. The word regulate meant to "keep regular". The power given to Congress is to keep “regular” the commerce between and among the various states. Using the modern definition of the word regulate is wrong. It does not mean to control or supervise (a company or business activity) by means of rules and regulations."
    Since this is ALSO not what's happening, your point is irrelevant.
    When you say you can enact the powers of congress and the amendments in question are somehow not limits on the government that is exactly what you're doing.

    Segregated until like the 70s though. Which is why I used the word segregated.

    So they weren't terrible by the standards of the time, but it took until 2013 to let gay kids in so hardly cutting edge now.

    in any case, the point of all this was your ridiculous stereotype being analogous to racial stereotyping.

    Half truths are lies all dressed up. The BS left it up to local areas to decide on integration and it was in the south that it went on until the 70s. At that point the BS organization made it mandatory for all troops to be integrated but implying all troops were segregated until then is just not factual.

    IOW, it doesn't come from the constitution

    Can you read the english language? What does that section of the fourteenth amendment referenced by the SC say?
    Nope, you spoke of intent, which is just your opinion



    It very clearly is in the Constitution. Would you like to say how its not? No?
    No, it's not.



    That argument makes no sense. The commerce clause has nothing to do with regulation of business, but trade disputes between the listed members. It would have no bearing on business at all. Also, not all regulation calls for involuntary servitude.
    Wrong again

    Grade school arguments all around. Tell me when you can actually defeat one of my arguments that I have put out this entire thread. I can't believe someone can respond as much as you have in this thread and yet not defeat one argument the entire time.
