    Meanwhile, a county in Alabama is suing so that n$*$&*s can't vote so damned easily.

    Checks and balances. Checks and balances.

    Good news: It was only a paperwork mistake. They didn't mean to wait until 2013 to get down with abolishing slavery.

    Bad news: They only meant to wait until 1995.

    Georgia was not readmitted to the Union until July 1870. Fact fail.

    New Jersey ratified in 1866, Delaware ratified in 1901 and Kentucky ratified in 1976

    I guess they finally realized the Civil War was over.
  10. States were never readmitted. It's an incorrect term, as secession is illegal. Readmisison just means Congressional delegations were allowed to be seated.

    Assuming you mean Shelby County v. Holder, you are talking out of your ass.

    I would like to congratulate the state of Mississippi for finally joining the '70s.

    The 1870s.
