In which John Green teaches you about the United States Constitution. During and after the American Revolutionary War, the government of the new country operated under the Articles of Confederation. While these Articles got the young nation through its war with England, they weren't of much use when it came to running a country. So, the founding fathers decided try their hand at nation-building, and they created the Constitution of the United States, which you may remember as the one that says We The People at the top. John will tell you how the convention came together, some of the compromises that had to be made to pass this thing, and why it's very lucky that the framers installed a somewhat reasonable process for making changes to the thing. You'll learn about Shays' Rebellion, the Federalist Papers, the elite vs rabble dynamic of the houses of congress, and start to find out just what an anti-federalist is.

For those doubters of AoC (not that AOC) the Articles, though not ratified until 1781 (League of Friendship) had some positives.
1. From a tactical standpoint it could be argued that Great Britain was combating 13 nation states and additional "territories", yes still a united rebellion but with strategic flexibility vested to local commanders despite no federal outline of military rank and hierarchy. Establishing imminent threat measures for states to have leeway on the emergency use of their local militias.
2. Free states who captured fugitive slaves from other states were not lawfully forced return them to their former masters, although there were provisions for the extradition of criminals.
3,. Authorized treaty powers to negotiate with Native American tribes.
4. Establishing a Federal Court of Appeals (later Federal Court System)
5. AoC was recognized as the governing framework when the British negotiated Treaty of Paris, signed in 1783, otherwise they would left the issue untenable.
As someone who already finished college (and also never went to high school. Long story), I'm going to ignore the overwhelming theme of these comments and instead ask why does everyone hate on my state (NJ)? I mean I know why *I* do (*raises finance-major fist at taxes*), but I want to know why everyone *else* does.
It's kinda ignorant to suggest Hamilton wouldn't have thought that firearms would evolve, being that while they were penning the Constitution, numerous firearms were available that sought to end the Musket/Pennsylvania Long Rifle's one shot fire mechanism.
From the Puckle Gun to Congress's offer of the Belton Flintlock, there were many weapons in that time that tried to jumpstart rapid fire weapon evolution.
Also, James Madison confirmed that Cannons were consititutionally protected under the 2nd Amendment. A cannon then is what a drone is now.
This summary does not emphasize compromises thought necessary to protect slavery. Using Virginia and New Jersey as large and small states are not good examples. The point of the electoral college was to protect slavery. Federalism was to protect slavery.
A lot of the editorializing done in these videos is pithy but extremely biased and seemingly uninformed (for example it's pretty well established that, despite also likely being racist, representatives from northern states wanted slaves not to count as people to give less political power to southern slave states where, you know, they would be counted as people without being able to vote) . That said, they are pretty amazing broad brush accounts that adhere to the actual events.
I know that it is a lot of information, but some of us retain information faster or slower, than others. My request is that you slow down, because you talk really fast. I find myself looking at your videos 3 or 4 times just catch what you were talking about.
The US citizen has no political rights associated with citizenship because the US citizen relies on the 14th Amendment for it's creation. The 14th Amendment doesn't incorporate the Bill of Rights protections into the Amendment. The only inherent right the US citizen has is the right to reside on US territory. The 14th Amendment created a second class of citizens because Dred Scott said blacks could never have Constitutionally protected rights because the Constitution deemed them to be property. To be a US citizen you must have taken the Citizenship Oath in front of someone entitled to administer the oath. The United States is all the land owned by The United States of America.
To sum up, 12:22 US Constitution bad... Vague piece of paper... Details... blah,blah,blah. The battlefield is meaningless... Thanks for watching... My liberal high school history teacher made me create this video.
This snowflake screams lefty, we live in a constitutional republic, and no we dont need big govt. Big govt. has killed over 250 million ppl over the last few hundred years, u sheeple need 2 wake the hell up and start thinking 4 urself
Actually many other countries have a similar form of government. They don’t elect their leader via popular vote. They elect their leader via a vote of parliament. We almost had the same thing except the framers wanted separation between the legislative branch and the executive. So they decided on the creation of a temporary parliament whose sole duty was to elect the president and vice president. This would be known as the electoral college.
What incredible ignorance about the 3/5 compromise. If it weren't for the compromise, the South would have had the political leverage of the an unrepresented slave population. With the power in the hands of the slave owners, we may still have slavery today!

The rest: Miscellaneous but still crying, probably teachers or failing freshman
Yay we love cramming in all of US history in less than 48 hours for an APUSH class! WE LOVE PROCRASTINATION! Also crash course helped me get through my world history honors class with my crazy teacher (yes we’re looking at you ms. Snyder)😇
Ahmed Barzaq I don’t think I did the greatest but at the same time I didn’t do horrible. I couldn’t get to finish the last 3 MCQs but it’s fine bc I’m not gonna get penalized for that. I already knew that one of the SAQs was gonna be about Manifest Destiny so that bag was secured. I didn’t do that great one of the DBQ, but I think I did pretty well on the LEQ
before the consitution was written a weak federal government was created, because the colonies had just fought for their independence from britain. colonists wanted a weak federal government because they feared the tyrannical rule they had endured under british control.

Second amendment was not just for muskets. There are many semi-auto and auto rifles like the belt-and flintlock girandoni air rifle, the puckle gun at the time. The founding fathers knew of these rifles and accounted for the technological advances and allowed these weapons to exist
You do not need to calculate payroll premium if your policy is on a stipulated billing cycle.
Sample Payroll Report.
However, if your policy is not yet on a stipulated billing cycle, this is typically what you will see when we send you a payroll report.
A split payroll report is sent when there is an Anniversary Rating Date on your policy, which is the month and day that rates, rating plans and rating systems are initially applied to a policy in force and each annual anniversary thereafter. Your payroll will need to be annotated for each period specified.
Sample Split Payroll Report.
We will need a complete employee job description before we add the classification to the policy. Please do not report payroll in the new classification until it has been reviewed and endorsed to your policy.
