    Why settle or little ole me when you can go to the horses mouth and the primary source. This should help you get started on the path to historical research. it can be fun and rewarding. You should try it instead of relying on others .

    you do understand that this was a complete break with the precedent and a rejection of the tenth amendment

    take it up with the US Supreme Court. Your dispute is with them - not me.

    oh wait! That has been done.

    The last person who posted views identical to yours, a style similar to yours and a location just like yours had the name of a serial killer and seems to have vanished. Is that a coincidence?

    Do you enjoy living in a country where the law has no meaning but what the masters say it means?

    Have ever considered time travel to enjoy the benefits of living under Caius Caligula Caesar? Perhaps Attila the Hun or Ghenghis Khan is more to your liking? In the modern world the Mayor understands that Stalin was an excellent role model for such as you, as were Hitler, Mao See Dung, Pol Pot, Castro, Che Guevera, Idi Amin, Robert Mugabe, Ayatollah Khomeini, and Moanmore Ghadhaffy. You seek to add Obama to that list.

    Did you learn nothing of history, ever?

    He doesn't want to hear the truth because he can't handle the truth.

    So, what you're saying is that because the decisions of the US Supreme Court are both irrevokable and infallible, then the Brown v Board of Education decision was either a horrible mistake or fiction.

    no, but it seems to be a necessary assumption of your (flawed) logic.

    Supreme Court decisions are no more or less binding than statutory law; as overturnable by the next SCOTUS as legislation is by the next Congress.
