Q: 

Ok do i understand this correctly?

A:  I think you explained it perfectly. The reality however is the US Govt is upset because Arizona is showing them up by attempting to do the job that should be done by the federal government. The old rule applies here, ''you make Uncle Sugar look bad, he will be mad''. Political leaders are looking ahead and want to cultivate like minded voters. They feel their actions defending interlopers will give them votes in the future to offset the votes they will lose from mainstream America. Yes, At least Beevis and Butthead had Daria to tell them what to do in a few episodes. Beavis and Butthead make the gov''t sound too intelligent. What I don''t understand is, if I get pulled over by the police and provide them with phony ID or none at all I will get hauled off to prison...

Q: 

Martial law - Constitutional Basis?

A:  chesler...post.harvard.edu (David S Chesler) wrote in message news:<nvt7rvo4h4v6o3bur83h2agv49j56s3qmq...4ax.com>... Where is the Constitutional authority for the Executive branch to take over, without checks or balances by the other branches, nor limited by anything but "necessity"? Section 501.5 appeals to "an accepted principle of our Government." Can they do better than that? The checks and balances take place _after_ the fact, when congressional investigations and/or criminal proceedings or lawsuits in the courts require the executive to account for his actions and justify them in accordance with the rules and guidelines you quoted. The same way those branches may investigate an Exxon after a Valdez disaster, or an Enron after a funny...

Q: 

Why does federal law ''vary'' from dist to dist/circt to circt

A:  federal law doesn't differ. There is only one Bankruptcy Code - the federal one. What *does* differ is state law, and the federal Bankruptcy Code defers to state law on some important things, most notably: exemptions. Some states have their own exemptions which debtors in those states must use; some states use the federal exemptions only, and some states (mine is one such state) offer the debtor the choice of electing either the

Q: 

Your opinion In her own words: Gov. Jan Brewer on Mexico joining lawsuit against Arizona''s SB 1070?

A:  tonalc2 is representative of how uneducated some have become. They listen to morons that tell lies. Ethnic studys are allowed in Arizona, the new law says the teachers must be qualified (know how to speak English) and will not teach the over throw of the US. The Raza classes in Tucson were taught by unqualified racists teaching hate and served as a recruiting tool for La Raza terrorists and Reconquitas. They should all be in prison. FU>CK MEXICO She sounds quite reasonable to me, and she is absolutely right. The other thought is that Mexico needs to butt out of our internal affairs. They have no right to so much as an opinion. We are all praying that our insane government fails in this lawsuit and that common sense will

Q:

Thiswas their second trip to US on a 10-year visa. This happened in April2002.Sundar Sundar, My parents came on their first trip in December 2001 (with 10 year, multiple entry B2 visa), and they received 6 months. They applied for an extension (I539), and were granted another 6 months. They left after about 11.5 months. They may be coming again soon. I am trying to estimate likely duration they will get at POE. Of course, it is hard to extrapolate from other cases, but I would appreciate if you could answer the following regarding your preants'' case. 1. During the first visit, did your parents stay 6 months...

Q: 

Waiving A Right

A:  People waive rights all the time. That, IMO, is one of the stupidest things they can do. A lot of folks who are arrested are totally clueless when it comes to their position. After all, they are holding bargaining chips, yet they toss them away for nothing or nearly nothing in return. Also, people sign contracts of adhesion (e. g. they don''t bargain at all, for price, terms or anything) and then are too inert to fight said contracts if there is a problem with them. Don''t underestimate the twin powers of inertia and stupidity. Pretty much anything can be waived (so far as I am aware), if the person waiving the right is proven to be competent. This means, over 18 at the time of waiver, not insane, not under duress, etc. People also engage in forebearance, in that they don''t do something...

Q: 

Jurors Who Convicted Marijuana Grower Seek New Trial

A:  Nothing quite like an "informed" and "intelligent" jury! This is the most ludicrous Ashcroft stunt to date. This show exactly how far the Bush Administration will go to show it''s total disregard to the will of the people. We are entering a total totalitarian state unless the people rise-now! Extract from your link shows he was tried in federal court. Wouldn''t federal law have to follow, and the verdict depend on the facts? "The judge in the case, Judge Charles R. Breyer of federal District Court, had barred Mr. Rosenthal''s defense from mentioning the state law because he was indicted under...

Q: 

fraud basis for nullity of marriage

A:  "in my request for admissions I have asked the respondent if his country public health dept have records of his mental illness." That sounds more like an interrogatory than an RFA. "If he denies that he have the mental illness can I motion to the court to force him to reveal his mental health records from his home country?" If you want copies of documents, serve a document request. If the documents are in his possession, custody or control, he will have the obligation to produce them to you. If he doesn't, the court will not force him to obtain them (although it might order him to sign some sort of release so that you can try and obtain them). "or would a move to motion to court for a mental examination be a better option?" We can't assess the...

Q: 

Annotated Code and Code of regulations

A:  When Congress passes a law, it often authorizes the agency in charge of that area to initiate regulations to implement the law. The law passed by congress is found in the United states Code (USC). The regulations implementing the law are found in the Code of federal regulations (CFR). If the regulations do not conflict with the law, they have the force and effect of law. This is the same for the state government for state...
