Q: 

What does it mean to have a different passport then the country you were raised in?

A:  It does not mean that. You should apply for it and be sure you could prove that you were born there. Read this: http://www.bia.homeoffice.gov.uk/britishcitizenship/othernationality/Britishcitizenship/borninukorqualifyingterritory/ You should have applied for British nationality. When you are recognised as a citizen of UK, you can apply for a British Passport. In the first place, it means that you are an Irish citizen. BUT - the fact that you do not have a British/English or whatever passport does not mean that you are not a British citizen. First of all, wherever you are, check with the English Embassy, and find out if you qualify. If you do, the next step is to apply for the passport. Basically, yes, though you may be eligible for dual...

Q: 

Is it true that california''s assault weapons ban violates the u.s. constitution?

A:  I''m pretty sure that a state mandated ban wouldn''t have made it all the way through without catching the eyes of multiple skilled lawmakers and government experts, were it to violate anything in the constitution. Want an assault weapon? I''m afraid it''s the black market for you my friend. Fortunately, our lovely state here has several direct pipelines to that marvelous place called Mexico, whereby millions of dollars worth of drugs, guns, and people come through, each and every day. That would depend on your interpretation of the constitution. The constitution refers to ''the right to bear arms''. However, this not interpreted to mean that *all* arms are legal....

Q: 

What does the Fair Housing Act have to do with the constitution?

A:  The constitution gives government powers and regulations. If it is not in the constitution as a duty of government, then government can not assume that power. This is to prevent the natural unlimited expansion of government power over the people. The constitution limits government, it does not limit the people. The ''Fair Housing Act" is probably claimed to be part of the ''general welfare''. However the general welfare means 100% of the population are to receive the exact same thing from this. If only certain aspects of society gain benefit from ''the fair housing act'', then it is a violation of the constitution....

Q: 

How long does it take for a divorce to be final in Pennsylvania?

A:  a week It will go before a judge and if he doesn''t contest it, will become final in due process, but anything could happen, which could cause all sorts of delays. There probably isn''t anything that can be done to speed things up, locked into a legal system, where only the lawyers win. It takes 60 seconds. Then it''s gone....

Q: 

Will I be subject to random drug tests without it in the contract?

A:  why would you choose to worry about getting stoned instead of keeping a job?personally i wouldn''t want someone who''s is responsible for saving a life stoned. You''ll need to do better than that. Do you seriously think that they can''t tell Ibuprofen from illicit drugs? Do you really think they will trust someone taking drugs with a job that could mean life or death? Can you imagine what the fallout would be if there was an incident and you failed a drug test? You say that you wouldn''t smoke anytime that interferes with your responsibilities, what responsible employer would believe you? BTW the tests can detect drug use for some considerable time prior to the test depending on the drug. Be responsible and stop smoking for a while. It may not be what you want to...

Q: 

IS IT true that many Indians break laws in some or other way & don't get complained by or punished??see more

A:  It is true it happens world wide, but I agree with the reasons in the 2nd answer, They are why its so much more in India. yes it is true because they do not wear helmet,stole anything and driving car in hi-speed it is every where in the world and india is not an exception to that. laws are being enacted by the governemnt for the welfare and good goverence. but people are misusing that for power money etc. law is relative for some people. eventhough ignorance of law is no excuse but most of the people including educated people are not aware of their duties rights and responsibilities. hence there is a possibility of circumventing the law. out of 110 crore indian population still 35 percent are below the poverty line and uneducated. in such a vast society there is...

Q: 

Can I get a down payment refund on a car if the owner took it based on no insurance. I've only had the car about 3 weeks

A:  In the contract documents reread the insurance requirement clause. If it says that insurance is required to insure the loan or hold the financing or dealership harmless, full coverage is implied and you have breached the contract. Liability coverage only covers the person you hit or damages to other property not the vehicle you are driving. I am surprised that the dealer let you have the car without any proof of insurance before driving the car off the lot. But then again I have no respect for used car salesmen. Check with an attorney to see what the state laws are regarding repo and refunds....

Q: 

buying a forclosed home and the title is in the owners name still not the banks

A:  Thanks for the answers, yes i have a real estate agent. He is unsure why the bank doesnt have the title in their name. He says he has a few theories but he isnt sure. I did ask if their was a lien on the title and he said no. To clairfy my post, the home is listed by a real estate company and no where on the listing did it say it was a forclosure. We put in our offer and everything we signed had a mans name listed as the seller. Our offer was accepted and we had to sign more papers at which time our agent became aware that this is a forclosed home owned by a bank but everything up until the point after our offer was accepted was in the old...

Q: 

Is actually illegal to HAVE cuban cigars in the U.S.?

A:  It is illigal to bring them over the border, so...yes! but there''s no way you will be caught. The Airport Security should have confiscated them the moment you stepped foot in the US No. It is illegal to spend money you earned in the US on anything from Cuba without special permission. What you did that was illegal was purchase a product of Cuba which supports their economy. That violates the terms of the embargo. Recommend that you go ahead and smoke those bad boys before the Feds come knocking. it''s still illegal but the chances that you will get caught once you have them inside the US is close to zero...
