Q: 

Why do people quote the constitution?

A:  elastic clause my good friend. the elastic clause. It represents the laws of our land.Throw it out as you suggest and there will be no America. Is the constitution perfect - NO. It is better than anything else I''ve seen. The 14th adment has been expanded by a court ruling. If any state would make a law challenging that interpretation the Surpreme Court would have to revisit the ruling. Maybe they should have pushed Prop 187 harder. As for your refferance to muskets, Check out the # of weapons per capida that Switzerland has & their crime rate. Maybe you will stop preaching gun control & start preaching gun ownership! I''m not sure if you just emerged from your cave or just havn;t heard of "

Q: 

does My Employer Owe Me Money?

A:  Talk to your employer and ask them to refund the money withheld. Go talk to payroll / HR and work it out. Closed mouths don''t get feed... If you don''t have insurance through your employer any more, yes they''d owe you whatever has been taken for insurance from your paychecks since your insurance was discontinued. Talk to your payroll department or your boss. It sounds like your payroll records didn''t get updated properly. You shouldn''t have a problem getting your money back - sounds like it was just a mistake. Your employer, not the ins. company owes you the money. And yes, your employer owes you the money back. If you are part-time with no ins. - than there is no payroll deduction. Maybe the nit-wit that does the company payroll so poorly, needs to be reduced...

Q: 

How does someone prove that their ex accepted a position in which he is over-qualified and under paid?

A:  My sincerest condolences for your current position.  You didn''t mention whether or not your had an attorney yet, or how far the divorce had proceeded at this point. Divorce laws are tricky from state to state, and vary greatly especially in terms of the division of property.  So there is no one size fits all answer we can give you here, and even if you have to borrow from friends or family to retain a good attorney, it may be worth your while to do so. With as much as your ex made in income over the years, there is a good chance he is hiding some of it in other accounts or assets.  Your attorney can often help you to identify them, as you have a right to know exactly what he owns before any divorce settlement is finalized, and it will affect the final division of...

Q: 

Adoptees how does it make you feel when you hear. . . ?

A:  It usually only happens when we are at the mall trying on clothes. Sales clerks are trying to compliment to make a sale and say how we look alike and are both so beautiful. We know we don''t look alike. This is when we know not to listen to the clerk because they won''t give you honest advice about style or if an outfit looks good on your body type. Many people do comment on how we act alike or other personality traits. I take that as a compliment. i hated this. i found it patronizing. i looked nothing like my aparents. nothing. or my sister. i used to just look at them. when i got older i would say ''i doubt that.'' or something smart. now i just laugh right at them and tell them im adopted, so i know they are joking. I only heard this maybe a couple times in my life,mainly when i was...

Q: 

Any lawer? How is the existence of illegal immigration possible?

A:  It has been a national issue from the days of the founding fathers...its a implied power in the US constitution. It was right after the states governing themselves failed and gave up powers to the national government. The Supreme court is extremely powerful and is the only body in the government that can throw out or add parts to the constitution...Basically they have the power to do what they want to concerning law and the constitution if it has the majority all they have to say is immigration is unconstitutional and this will all be a thing of the past but its an implied power as said earlier and they will not take power from themselves so the new immigrants are in...

Q: 

does the goverment have the right to make a law that will definitely kill innocent people?

A:  Before I answer your question, let me say that I am a libertarian. Havng said that, the government''s only role is to protect individual rights. Mandated seatbelts are outcomes of a nany-state. They should be repealed. The government passes laws by a legislature elected by the people of that state, or the united states in the case of seat belts because they are regulated by the federal government. In other words, those are the laws the people ultimately want. When laws are passed, policy decisions are made based generally on what''s good for the most amount of people. Someone will always get screwed but if they can save a zillion lives with seat belts, they won''t say let''s not do that...

Q: 

US residents: How does it feel knowing every Tom, dick and Harry has a gun?

A:  You forgot about Sally, Jane, and Elizabeth. And we feel much safer living alone. Except that not everyone does. But its good knowing that when our government gets out of control we can take them down like the Declaration of Independence allows us. I bet your country doesn''t have that luxury. Hows the King or Queen where you live? Whiterice has an excellent link in his answer. Historically, ALL of the "mass shooting homicide" incidents, as you like to call them, have been in places like universities, high schools, and churches, where GUNS WERE ALREADY BANNED!!!! The criminals KNEW that they could go to those places and kill as many people as they wanted to, because nobody was legally armed. Those facts completely destroy your...

Q: 

Should the constitution be a malleable document?

A:  I feel we are in our current situation because we stopped following the constitution . The constitution grants certain privelages to government, while protecting our freedoms. Old or not, freedom is freedom. What exactly do you mean ” alter it to reflect our current situation?” What would you alter? Remember what Ben Franklin said, “any society that gives up essential liberty, for temporary security, deserve neither.” The second amendment for example. A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. We have a military now. Do we really need a militia? Every dude doesn''t...

Q: 

How does Illegal immigration differ legal immigration?

Fraud rings steal Puerto Ricans’ identities for sale to illegal immigrants How about taxes that our younger teenagers could be paying into the system? Not just for those who retire, but for their own retirements. How about all the stimulus to our economy when they spend the majority of their money here, instead of watching it be sent out of the country.
