Is the supreme court poised to destroy the nationís campaign finance laws?

A:  YES THEY ARE & IF THEY DO IT, IT WILL BE THE WORST DECISION IN THE HISTORY OF THIS COUNTRY AND I AM INCLUDING DREDD SCOTT BUT, I DON''T THINK THEY WILL DO IT.

It will be the biggest shredding of the USA Constitution since the USA supreme court ruled in Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad that corporations are persons and deserve equal protection rights under the 14th Amendment....

Q: 

Are you in the Air Force, if so how long have you been in and how often have you been re stationed?

A:  Hubby has been in for 24 years, and we''ve been at 7 bases during that time, which is pretty average. Besides stateside locations, we''ve been blessed to spend almost 9 years in Europe! Every job has the potential to be moved around from base to base, it''s the nature of the military. You go where the AF needs you, not where you want to be. I know enlisted folks that have moved every 3 years, and I know others who stayed at the same base for 15 years. You just never know when it''s going to be your time to move. And honestly, most folks enjoy the moving around. Change of leadership, change of scenery, new adventures, etc. I''m getting closer to eighty years old every day. I am a Air Force expert, you can say. I''ve been with them ever since my brother kicked me out of my parents house at...

Q: 

Can a father file for custody, having already been ordered to pay child support?

A:  I''m in Los Angeles - BTW. My ex stopped seeing his children once he got his visitation to 30% (it started off at 0% and it took him 2 years to ''earn'' 30% visitation - he''s a terrible father) and his child support lowered to reflect that amount of time spent. Once we left that court that day this was ordered, he never saw two of the children the entire time they were minors. So I went years without going back to court and getting it adjusted (which I wish I hadn''t waited). Finally, when I had one child left at home (the other two were grown and still had not seen their dad for about 9 years) I finally had it and brought him back to court to get the child support adjusted to reflect that I had our daughter 100%...

Q: 

If the Prop 8 case goes to the supreme court and they recognize homosexual marriages on a federal level?

A:  hmmm.......God vs the gavel. to quote bette davis ''Fasten your seatbelts. It''s going to be a bumpy ride.'' religious freedom is a civil liberty. gay marriage is trying to establish itself as a civil right. they are two different realms of freedoms provided in the US. this COULD effectively pit the system against itself....and bring about an argument of which is more important - civil rights and equality or civil liberties and the right to choose freely. if gay marriage is passed by a legal action demanding that the citizens of the US acknowledge, endorse, sanction, and support that action (which is what prop 8 demands in CA)........there could be grounds to force religions to comply with the law of the land. and as in the case of the most recent overturning of...

Q: 

i think the supreme court just ruled DEA cant subvert cali drug laws

A:  @OGIONIK, I think you heard wrongly. The supreme court has decided only one case since June, and it had nothing to do with the DEA or California drug laws. Moreover, such a ruling would contradict Gonzales v. Raich (2005). In that case, the supreme court ruled that federal drug laws and their enforcement by the DEA override California''s rights to make its own drug laws. I would be surprised if the court had changed its mind on this. @OGIONIK, You may be thinking of the California supreme court deciding to revisit...

Q: 

What is the penalty for resisting arrest if I have never been in trouble with the law before?

A:  Resisting arrest in Missouri is a Class A misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to one year in jail and/or up to a $1000.00 fine. If, however, you were arrested by a city officer, you likely received a summons for an ordinance violation, and the potential penalties are set by the City where you were arrested. You''ll have to ask your lawyer about the range of punishment in that case. Given that this is your first offense and you ultimately stopped on your own, I would not expect anything too severe. Hire a lawyer, and work toward keeping your record clean, and your money in your pocket. The possibilities could be diversion, for example completing community service in exchange for a dismissal, to a reduced charge and a fine. It all depends...
