Glitch with Colorado's state flag: At 3:43 you can see the Colorado state flag skort. In the Colorado state flag, the red ring isn't complete, it makes a C with the yellow circle inside. It isn't supposed to encapsulate it. Love your work Grey

I think the "bumping" clause refers to people who didn't die when the president did, but rather weren't able to serve as president when first called for some reason, such as being in a coma. If that were the case, new appointees would *not* usurp the presidency.

4:16 Interesting fact: it was Wilson's wife who told everyone this and until Woodrow went on publicity tours drumming up support for the League of Nations, hardly anybody knew if he was actually capable of performing the duties of president or indeed _still alive._ His advisors would tell Edith what was going down and she would decide what he needed to be kept abreast of and what could be delegated. Because of this, some historians argue that America's first female president was Edith Wilson.

The 28th amendment should be Section 1 "if anyone below the Secretary of State in the order of succession becomes acting president, he or she can appoint new acting Secretaries and a new acting Vice President while still remaining the Acting President. He/she also remains acting president when congress elects a new President Pro Tempore or Speaker of the House. After the original president's original term is up he/she gives up the powers and duties of the president to the new duly elected official and they take their original secretarial job back from the acting secretary." Section 2 "Congress will after 1 week of the acting president appointing an acting Vice and an acting secretary or secretaries vote on them. They become the acting official if a majority of both houses agree on it. Congress can pass laws regarding hearings. Hearings can be made before the 1 week period." Section 3 "The order of succession will be revised to put the Secretary of the Homeland Security below the Attorney General."

This reminds me of an end of the world movie. I think it was a zombie movie. But basically this chain of command is brought up, and guess what? Nearly every chain of command (president, vice president, the speaker, etc) have been taken by the virus. So a secretary (I think education or something) became the new president. If you have seen that movie, you can sense the despair in the air. The fact that the ladder ACTUALLY climbed all the way down to make that person president really brought concern to the people on Air Force One who survived. And it wasn't like they could go through any ceremony or an official swear-in. I think it was more like "hey, you survived. Congrats, you are the president despite the fact you were never prepared for this job, nor did you even want the job at all. But because everyone before you is dead, and probably those lower than you are dead too, now you are the president. But we're not gonna have any of those swear-in ceremony, so just take the office and the duties and uhhh...try not to die too. We think you are the last one." Edit: If you are familiar with this movie, please let me know.

Jesus says in John 6:47 "verily, verily I say unto you, he that believes in me has everlasting life." Jesus of Nazareth, who was God in the flesh of a man, died for the remission of sin, including yours, was buried, and rose form the dead 3 days later. If you simply believe in this to apply to you and trust Jesus to save you from hell then you have everlasting life in heaven.

Michael Wilkinson

@Muhamad Hamdy It's mainly because laws are meant to be long-term, and it's hard for present lawmakers to predict the future. That's why most laws are written to be vague, so that future generations can interpret these laws the "Right" way.
