Q: 

Bush''s domestic spying: constitutional? impeachable?

A:  Bookmark. I''m not well versed enough to contribute much here, but have the same questions so I''ll be reading along. Yes, same here. I won''t delve into the issue, and certainly won''t stick around for the sneering outrage of the usual suspects. I will make an observation on pragmatic politics. Impeachment simply means being indicted. The House of Representatives would have to bring a bill of impeachment. The Republicans control the House of Representatives. It ain''ta gonna happen . . . I don''t think it''s a constitutional issue. There isn''t anything that allows the President to direct foreign intelligence in the constitution either but no one has questioned their authority to do so over the decades. The issue...

Q: 

Is it legal to shoot someone if you challenge them to a duel first?

A:  i actually didnt know this but some states you can if im reading this right State and territorial laws prohibiting duelling 20 states, along with the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, have some statute(s) (including constitutional provisions) specifically prohibiting duelling. The remaining 30 states either have no such statute or constitutional provision, or limit their duelling prohibition to members of their state national guard. This does not necessarily mean, however, that duelling is legal in any state, as assault and murder laws can apply. The following is a list of each state's or territory's status with respect to...

Q: 

Who also thinks that the 2nd Amendment of the USA constitution (re right to bear arms) is outdated?

A:  I think its outdated, but for different reasons. I don''t agree with labelling anyone who has a gun as a terrorist - some people need them (i.e. farmers, hunters, etc.) and the word terrorist loses its value when its overused. However, the second amendment provides for armed militias to keep the government under control. It is irrelevant because the US military is too strong now and has too much advanced weaponry for a gun to be of any use keeping them in check. Gun vs. Fighter jet...hmm, who''s going to win? Repealing the Second Amendment would require another amendment. To get that, one would require 2/3 of the Congress and 3/4 of the States to ratify. That just ain''t gonna happen; not today; not this century. American pols, namely Senators, need to enact laws...

Q: 

Is the constitution Worth Preserving?

A:  Our freedom depends on us preserving that document. It has been attacked, abused, and misused. But it stands with the strength of our forefathers who envisoned acts like we have been threatend by. The Obamas of the world can try, and they can make things really bad for us short term, But he has been found out, And the tide will change. He will be forced into being a turtle and hide in his shell, When it is time for him to go, This country will race to freedom once again. Our fathers, Brothers, Sons, Mothers and Daughters did not give their lives in vain. And they stand with us in spirit and purpose each and everyday of our lives. Stand next to the wall in DC, and feel the power of the calling, Feel the force of emotion that wells up within your spirit, Feel the pride and...

Q: 

What constitutes excessive force and what actions are acceptable for police officers to exhibit?

A:  1. If they are charged with burglary, the prosecutor must prove that they broke in and entered into something like a building, car, boat, or trailer with the intent to commit a crime. The crime of larceny involves the wrongful taking of the personal property of another with the intent to deprive the owner of the property. Trespass is entering another person''s property without permission of the owner or legal authority. 2. The constitutional right of being presumed innocent until proven guilty does not apply to an arrest situation. An officer must only have probable cause in order to make an arrest. 3. In assessing whether the use of force, deadly or not, was excessive, the Supreme Court has held that the proper...

Q: 

If supreme court gives any verdict against constitution can president declare it void under art.60 or else?

A:  The basic structure doctrine propounded in the Kesavananda Bharati case in 1973, has been reaffirmed again and again, much to the chagrin of the ruling class and the anarchists with the Leftist orientation. Even now, the gross misuse of Land Acquisition acts, placed in the 9th schedule, against the masses of India, is under review. So, there is no chance for the judiciary to undermine its own status under the constitution, as the last refuge for defence of constitution, by handing out ruling against the constitution. It must be remembered that even the Judges, who were ambivalent on the basic Structure doctrine, shot down the misadventure of Chief Justice .A.N.Ray for a suo motu review of...

Q: 

purchase agreement and cash back

A:  Laymans take: If the purchase agreement is a done deal there is no obligation on part of seller to modify the terms to include the new sales incentive! I'm reading your post to mean that there was not a signature missing as to the deal as a whole but a sign off as to some detail like a choice of flooring or an "addition" to the core contract. If the deal as a whole is incomplete, the actual last step of offer accecptance is incomplete etc you may have a technical window to balk or jawbone--but the seller is under no obligation to offer you a better deal! Your option could be to walk and start over--- If your deal provides for some exit windows as to financing its possible to deliberately shoot yourself in the foot to open same--but I don't...

Q: 

Your opinion on poll Arizona Poll: 64% Say No to Anchor Babies?

A:  Its too bad the constitution was manipulated to allow this by an activist court nearly a century ago. The constitution, 14th Amendment was never intended to allow carte blanc citizenship to foreigners born in the US. The reading comprehension skills of Americans need some work. I say no to anchor babies too. I like those Arizona people. Most of them have their heads on straight. At least on this issue. Let the baby stay and throw out the parents. If they want to take the baby, make them pay the hospital bills and let them go. Well it''s about time they fix that. That was originally for the slaves. These illegal babies of illegals are not slaves and they are not here against their will. I do hope that they change it...
