The U.S. Supreme Court held that Congress acted well within its jurisdiction of the Commerce Clause in passing the Civil Rights Act of 1964, thereby upholding the act's Title II in question. While it might have been possible for Congress to pursue other methods for abolishing racial discrimination, the way in which Congress did so, according to the Court, was perfectly valid. It found no merit in the arguments pursuant to the Thirteenth Amendment, finding it difficult to conceive that such an amendment might be applicable in restraining civil rights legislation. Having observed that 75% of the Heart of Atlanta Motel's clientele came from out-of-state, and that it was strategically located near Interstates 75 and 85 as well as two major Georgia highways, the Court found that the business clearly affected interstate commerce. Accordingly, it upheld the permanent injunction issued by the district court and required the Heart of Atlanta Motel to receive business from clientele of all races.

respect precedent. If you actually had a background in legal scholarship, you probably would be aware of what is commonly known as "the leftward ratchet of jurisprudence"
leftwing judges ratchet case law leftward. Subsequent 'conservative' judges respect that as precedent and cement it into the jurisdictional fabric. Then along come some more left-wingers and they crank things leftward
one of the reasons why Bork scared liberals was he noted that bad precedent should be stricken even if there was years of reliance upon it
sadly "faint hearted originalists" argue that unconstitutional stuff that has been around awhile has to remain because the upheaval caused by uprooting all the FDR nonsense would be too traumatic.
>>I love how you think that government is the reason non of those things have happened. Their should be a level regulations on business. I think you are confusing less government with no government.
I'd say I know what yer doing, as I've already indicated. You want public safety, but you don't want to admit that government plays an indispensable role in securing it. My guess is you also don't want to pay for it.
