it gives the judiciary, mostly the supreme court, the ability to determine whether laws or constitutional or not. and that ruling would depend on how the judges interpret what the constitution says
Don't know who else you would ask! It sure doesn't give judicial interpenetration to the Executive or Legislative. I sure don't agree with their track record over the years but that is their job.
Actually, it really does. It gives the Judiciary the right and obligation to interpret the meaning to determine if it is in fact legal within the confines of the Constitution. If the law is written is such a manner as to be confusing or contradictional to other laws, it must be interpreted to understand the meaning to consider not if it is a legally binding order or law, but whether it is defined as legal under the Constitution.
The problem with most modern day liberals is that they consider the Constitution as a living document, able to be rewritten to establish a more modern reflection of societies morals, yet the Constitution never has allowed for this, only allowing a measure in which to create newer amendments that may better reflect the changing morals of the American citizenry.
Since this is supposed to test knowledge of the Constitution the question is poorly worded. The power to “interpret the meaning of laws” is not expressly granted to the Supreme Court. Rather, judicial review was assumed by John Marshall in the case of Marbury v. Madison wherein the Court ruled for the first time that a previous act of Congress was unconstitutional.

Obviously you didn’t watch the video to clearly see a small holstered hand gun on his side.
The western culture is the Christian culture, the culture that rid the world of 5000 years of the practice of slavery. Hitler, Stalin and Mao were secular humanists’ diametrically opposed to western culture. This much maligned culture has fed more people, cured more diseases and raised the standard of living for more people than any civilization in the history of the world. Are we perfect, of course not but man is not perfect so stop expecting perfection.

I figure anyone that has to talk that fast knows he’s lying and doesn’t want to be challenged.

These three should get the Darwin award. How long do you let someone beat you before you scramble away? These Cretans attack you with a deadly weapon and you fire warning shots? This man needs guidance. Than the perpetrators call the police for help and claim victimhood? There isn’t a shoe size amount of intelligence among the three.
