Q: 

With the Democrats in power again the issue of gun ownership is being taken out of context again?

A:  Actually, the AK-47 not only CAN be, IT IS used for deer hunting. It has about the same power as a 30-30 Winchester which is the most popular deer rifle in the USA. Please keep in mind that the "assault weapon" controversy is a made-up issue. Assault weapons are fully automatic military arms that can fire multiple rounds with each press of the trigger, like a machine gun. The so-called "assault weapons" that are sold to civilians are not really assault weapons at all. They are SEMI-automatic. That is, they fire only ONE round for each press of the trigger. They are functionally NO DIFFERENT than my grandfather''s Browning deer rifle. They just LOOK like their military counterparts. Diane Feinstein, one of the principal gun grabbers in Congress, admitted on the record...

Q: 

Must a cross-complaint be answered?

A:  BTW, this has nothing to do with civil rights. Yes, a cross complaint must be answered. If it is not, your default and possibly a judgment can be entered against you. Summary judgment would be premature at this point. This has NOTHING to do with civil rights. "If our lawyer files a motion for summary judgement, must he still file an answer to the cross-complaint?" Yes. Among other things (and all this assumes that you are in CA state court rather than federal court)...an answer is due 30 days after the cross-complaint is served, so it sounds like you're about two weeks away from the due date. If you don't answer, the cross-complainant may take your default, which would render any pending motion a nullity. Additionally, if the party who filed...

Q: 

If a person loses their house to foreclousre is it true that you have to pay the IRS tax on the banks loss?

A:  Yes. For example: You owe $100,000 on your house and it is foreclosed on. The bank sells the house for $80,000. If it is a recourse loan (most are) and the bank forgives the $20,000 shortfall, the $20,000 is considered income to you and subject to income tax. One caveat: If you are bankrupt or insolvent at the time of the debt forgiveness, you do not have to report the shortfall as income (see IRS Form 982). If your house if foreclosed on or your car repossessed or any debt canceled, you have Cancellation of Debt (COD) income. This is reported to you and IRS on 1099C. It is reported on your 1040 on line 21 Miscellaneous Income. If you filed for bankruptcy, then any debt discharged is not included in your income. If it were not discharged in bankruptcy, then it...

Q: 

What if we could lessen the # of abortions by resticting them without making it totally illegal?

A:  There are lots of things we could do to reduce abortions significantly. In fact the no. of abortions done in the US fell sharply while Clinton was president, because birth control and ''family planning'' was more available. The abortion rate went up again under Bush. The problem is that we have politicized the issue. I agree it''s a real issue, but the way we talk about it, the way the issue is framed, is fake. Republicans never really had any intention of banning abortion, but they promised it to the Christian Right, and they refused to allow compromise to resolve the conflict, preferring for their own political reasons to ride the issue out for maximum political mileage. I am not really 100% pro choice or pro-life. Like most people, I think. What if we defined the beginning of life as...

Q: 

Husband got deported and to being him back, why do I have to show that I (his wife) can support him?

A:  You need to say why he was deported ? Has he been deported before ? What country ? Every country has different options? Your only chance is to find a co-sponsor. No lawyer can help you with that. Your other option is to show that you have assets that reach the necessary limit (that can be taken into account also, not just your income). Of course, the government just wants to make sure your husband does not become a public charge if he loses his job. What could you do if that happened? You do not work, who would support the family? If he was deported, he was deported for a reason, was that the affidavit or something else? That matters too. Find a co-sponsor. It can be any green card holder or citizen that is willing to take financial...

Q: 

I was recently involved in an accident and I'm being sued for it. What can happen to me?

A:  Don''t sweat it. That''s why there''s such a thing as "Liability Insurance" (I presume you do have insurance?). Let the insurance company fight it out for you. Send any and all correspondence to them; that''s why they get the "big bucks". if you had insurance they sue your ins co you will never really hear about it but to be safe report it as is to the dmv that will be what gets you out of it and dispute the ticket given then they will lose in court hands down Good luck first off do you have insurance? if so contact them they will deal with it for you if you do not when he threatens to sue you tell him you are countersuing due to the fact he was sighted also if you dont have insurance get an attorney there are a lot that will only only charge you if they win look in the...

Q: 

What do you think illegal drinking & driving now faces new charges man in serious condition in the intensive?

A:  Certainly the activists are outraged the police even arrested this illegal and they are outraged the police took him to jail and they are outraged at these new charges.These people from mexico are use to the laws in mexico when they reflect what are the laws in Mexico you may drink and drive and it caught you pay a bribe and the police allow you to go free that those laws apply here as well.. I just think the illegals from mexico take our drinking and driving laws very seriously at all as far to many cases are showing up in the news. If an American did this to a mexican in Mexico there would be riots and demanding justice and money. I say...

Q: 

What if you bought a home and you can''t get info from seller on septic that was written in contract?

A:  As already said, Alabama is a Caveat Emptor (Buyer Beware) state. This places all the burden on the buyer. This is a huge reason why buyers in Alabama need a licensed agent to help them. However, this is a contact item. First speak with your agent. Ask them to help you with the matter. If this is very important to you, I would also consider speaking with an attorney. When working with Buyers, I make sure all terms of the contract have been met prior to closing. You would like to believe people would be honest and follow through with what they agree to do, but this does not always happen. Stick to your contract and do not close until every party has completed their part of the deal! You would like to think that a seller would be willing to do what they say they will do in a real...

Q: 

I Got Stopped For No Probable Cause? You Be The Judge--Q

A:  Unless you can prove that your tabs were visible/readable and the officer had no other reason to make the stop, then you are stuck with this. In your comments above you do not argue that the tabs were visible, so it seems the officer likely did find a legitimate reason to stop you. That said, it sounds very much like the officer was looking for a reason to stop you, but that does not matter so much, so long as a valid violation was found. You were unlicensed, so the inventory of your vehicle and discovery of the beer is legitimate. As you describe it, you are likely stuck with this citation. Being unlicensed, I doubt you will have much luck trying to reduce it. Your best bet would be with the assistance of a private attorney. For what it''s worth though, I frequently stop vehicles for...

Q: 

Are my civil rights being violated?

A:  All rights can be waived. "he was accidentally put on the deed, only I am on the mortgage so I can't make him leave" You need to consult an attorney about that. The time to do something is NOW, rather than later. "How can they tell me who I can and cannot have over and for how long? I can see them ordering that for the nights I have my daughter, but not when I don't have her and he's not even home upstairs. I agreed to it a few months ago" You agreed to it. That's a waiver of your rights. "If I continue to have this person over, what are the ramifications of the family court?" Contempt of court. Showing the judge that you think you know better than what he's ordered. Worst case scenario, this works against you in a custody action....
