Q: 

Can I still ask for DV after the 30 days?

A:  You need to go over to www.creditinfocenter.com and read up on DVs. The FDCPA only says that IF you don''t request validation within 30 days, the CA can <i>assume</i> the debt is yours and continue collection. It also says that failure to request validation is does not admit guilt. You can request DV now...don''t worry about what you might have said on the phone. Your position now should be "I didn''t know my rights...I''m disputing this debt". And...never, ever talk with a CA on the phone. They make their money by lying and intimidation you into doing things you may not have to. Always communicate in writing...beginning with a DV letter. That''s exactly the site I just read! Loads of good information and links. Thanks for your reply. There is a difference between...

Q: 

another, different non-compete question

A:  Yes, you can be sued. You are confusing the act of suing with whether or not somebody has a winnable cause of action. "There is no signed agreement between the company I subcontracted with and the client/customer." You don't have to sign a contract to have a contract. "And I did not solicit the client/customer." Doesn't matter. And this has nothing to do with non-compete agreement. Just contracts in general. Customer A hired contractor B who subbed you, C, to work on A's job. C then works on A's job directly for A. A has breached a contract with B. C has breached a contract with B. B can sue both A and C for money lost as a result of each breach. And probably win. Doesn't matter when you signed it. You signed it. It's as valid as a court of...

Q: 

What is the connection between the Ten Commandments and the right to liberty?

A:  Think of liberty in the context of the 5th and 14th amendments due process clause. They prohibit Federal and state governments from depriving citizens of their liberty. In this sense, the individual is protected from government. The individual is of a higher order of importance than the state. In communist governments, the state is of greater importance than the individual. If you read the commandments as a whole, you will notice that there is no mention of the state. The state is subordinate to this law. The commandments also imply a natural law, one which exists outside of the state and which binds all individuals regardless of those laws which may be passed by a legislature. While each individual enjoys personal...

Q: 

What can we do about the bill that was illegally passed last night by the House of Representatives?

A:  coragryph is total correct on this. It IS possible for Congress to pass a law that violates the constitution. Such a law would be unconstitutional, but not illegally passed. Article 1, section 8 of the constitution allows Congress "To establish a uniform rule of naturalization ... throughout the United States. As such, any benefits they grant to illegal aliens are only unconstitutional to the extent that granting the same benefits to US citizens would be unconstitutional. Note: I agree with the position I think you hold about the law itself. This answer is intended to address the issue of...

Q: 

Is it constitutional to write a law to cap the size a business can get?

A:  So limit the amount of success a person can legally have? SO no matter how hard you work you can only achieve X much. We already have if you do not do anything you can only fail this much. Sounds like Communism to me What are you asking, whether it''s constitutional to cap a business? Probably, there is no constitutional prohibition to it. Or are you asking whether it''s a good idea? Probably not, I don''t see any compelling argument for such a limit, and in general, government should stay OUT of business unless there is such a compelling need. Well in the US we use Capitalism which basically allows anyone to start and business and there is no limit to how large the business can get. I agree with you, but this is how the Capitalism cookie...

Q: 

What kinds of questions would i expect to be asked at a Paralegal interview?

A:  Obviously, all I can do is give you what I know from experience. I have only had one paralegal interview. It was for a paid internship with a construction litigation firm. I still had two semesters of school left. I was immediately hired on the spot as their paid intern. Three months later, I was permanently hired as a full-time paralegal. Your interview will be tailored to what that firm is looking for. No one here can really predict for you the questions you are asking. I was interviewed and immediately hired by an attorney that wanted someone educated. He felt that if I were intelligent, the rest didn''t matter. He could teach me what I needed to know. The attorney you may be interviewing might not care and just wants you to fill coffee cups and filing papers. Know now that how this...

Q: 

Can the supreme court justices that voted against the second ammendment be convicted of treason?

A:  The Second Amendment clearly states that it applies to automatic and semi-automatic weapons with cartridges--or does it? Let''s look: 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. U.S. Con. 2nd Amd. (1791). It''s not there--amazing. An originalist might say that the 2nd Amendment applies only to flintlocks, which were the ''arms'' of the day, or would they commit treason by interpreting ''arms'' to somehow apply to modern weapons? Treason-The constitution of the United States, Art. III, defines treason against the United States to consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid or comfort. This offence is punished with...

Q: 

Change in the adoption world?

A:  Man, this problem runs DEEP. I''m probably not even going to scratch the surface, but: We need to quit perpetuating the idea that anyone (gay, straight, old, young, whatever) DESERVES children. Glamourizing adoption and hyperbreeding (Duggars?) are causing people to think of children as ''things'' you collect, not people, who need a certain amount of attention, love and active parenting. For example, waited until you were 50 to start having kids? Whoops, sorry ''bout that! But it''s not the kid''s problem...they shouldn''t have to begin caring for aging parents when they are 15, or even 20. It''s not right. And it has more to do with the wants of the parents than the needs of the child. Stop pretending that racism doesn''t exist, or that it doesn''t matter. Kids who are of a different race...

Q: 

Adoptees and suicide?

A:  From another poster here: ''As for Osmond''s child, I can''t for the life of me understand why the natural children are spoken of differently than the adopted children, if in fact adoption really was everything that we''re told to believe. Which is that an adoptive child is treated just like the rest of the family'' This. This is the essence of why this happens. We''re not the same. Treating us the ''same'' is PRETENDING, folks. We have different parents. We are not related to you. We lost our families. We have experienced a great loss. To blame the Mormon church (which I can''t stand) OR ''clinical'' depression (this is a symptom based disorder that is slapped on anything people can''t figure out or something a ''professional'' throws SSRIs at) is ignorant, and once again whitewashes the...

Q: 

Question for adult adoptees who had a bad adoption experience and still feel angry or hurt?

A:  I don''t think any of us (who were not adopted) could fully comprehend the ''feelings'' of being surrendered. Although when I do try to fathom the pain - I feel like puking. Adoptees are a brave group of troopers. No. My experience are my own. I lived MY life, and no one else''s. Your ''bad experience'' statement is typical of someone who is clueless to adoption loss. We can have the best adoptive parents in the world, but that will never change the fact that we lost our first Mothers, fathers, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, heritage, culture, identity, and in some cases,our country and native language. ''Do you ever wonder if with some assistance you might be able to let go of the anger and bitterness?'' Its really none of your business what kind of ''assistance'' we get,...
