Q: 

Why do 13 go to jail for if they aren`t 18 yet?

A:  Juveniles are no longer executed since a Supreme Court ruling quite a few years ago. Juveniles are not put in prison with adults. There are Federal laws that do not allow juveniles to put in with adults. Also, if a thirteen year old commits murder and is tried as a juvenile, he or she will be released upon turning the states maximum alotted age. Some states the maximum age is19 and others 21. Also, under common law a 7 year old can be charged with a crime. Many states set their minimun age at 8, however. The best way i can attempt to answer this is that in most cases a 13 year old cannot be tried as an adult...*UNLESS* he/she can be proven to know what he/she was doing and the difference between right and wrong given the scenario. if you want to see minors tried as...

Q: 

Why do people adopt...?

A:  Guatemala is in Central America - Not South America. FYI. The main reason I''ve heard for adopting overseas is to avoid having a child removed to be returned to his/her biological family. One thing that I do hear a lot of but which is not often cited as a specific reason is that many people find the idea of other people who spend huge amounts of money to ensure the adoption of a healthy, white American newborn absurd and mildly racist, and they don''t want to be lumped in with ''those'' adoptive parents. Of course, that doesn''t often stop them from insisting on getting a child from Russia or Ukraine...and guess what color the babies there are. still, there is a stigma, in some ways, attached to these domestic infant adoptions that I think, at least unconsciously, these parents are...

Q: 

Do We Have Any Rights when Our HOA Rips Us Off?

A:  I hate to tell you this but the homeowners association did not rip you off. One of your first mistakes was not to have asked about outstanding loans and assessments before you purchased. This is something all new prospective homeowners should be asking before they purchase. It is not up to the association to give you this information. As far as raising the assessments, I don''t know how many units are in your association but the increases don''t appear to be outrageous. Condominium associations and homeowner associations are hurting badly in these economic times and prices are going up daily. The association has to pay the bills and the only way they can do this is to increase assessments. You should have asked for a copy of your budget which would have at least shown you where the costs...

Q: 

Do we have rights when our HOA ripped us off?

A:  Welcome to the wide world of HOA's or as I call them Communist Communities. You have the rights that they allow you to have and not one more. They are free to enforce the rules as they see fit as long as the board members do not benefit from them personally. Have you read the Association Rules and Regulations? 2nervous2smile: As the first respondant said, welcome to the dictatorship. You have a lot of info in you post, and bring up several difficult situations. I feel bad for you. That respondant was at least somewhat correct in much of what he says. My daughter is planning to buy a condo, and I haven't been able to talk her out of it. I hope she doesn't land in your situation. Any kind of an association, whether it's hoa, coa, poa, or other, are now, or are one vote...

Q: 

Why do foster children move around so much?

A:  The scenario you describe is typical of the early days of foster care in my area. But not these days. Children do not stay in foster care for years in a typical placement. Parents do not have Forever to get their act together--like they did in the old days.The plan is, and it usually happens this way,the child remains in the home where he is placed until permanency is achieved ;UNLESS he has behavior problems that places the family in jeopardy.If the child goes home and returns to foster care his previous caregiver is called re: placement[this is part of policy]. But here''s the problem---in the meantime the previous foster parents have probably already taken another placement or two and they are full. They don''t set empty for long. And moving without notice Can NOT be done without prior...

Q: 

Why do you think some people just choose not to listen?

A:  Its human nature. Automatically we get defensive about our thoughts and beliefs. When some of the people on here aren''t patient with us that are learning its hard to listen. Although I don''t blame them for being annoyed at having to say the same things over and over again. My story: I came to yahoo wondering about adoption. Was it right for me? My husband and I found out we can''t conceive on our own so we turned to adoption. Infant adoptions were on the top of our list. Wrong I know now but then I did not. Selfish? Yes. Desperation? Yes. I was hurting. Since I was little I have always wanted to be a mother. And after getting over the embarrassment of not being able to have our own we told people. They''re response was always the same. ''just adopt'' I thought giving a baby a home would...

Q: 

Why do soldiers talk down to normal people, who are not in the army?

A:  It''s the same reason why Marines talk down on Army, or why Army talks down on Navy, or why Infantry talks down on support ''Pogues'', or why Airborne talks down on Infantry, ''Legs.'' It''s just part of military culture that if you are more hardcore and gungho than another, then you are superior. Civilians just happen to be rather vulnerable to this type of treatment, since on average, civilians aren''t athletes or skydivers, or very high in the social-importance ladder to hold their own against a service member whose ego had been inflated from all the ''HOOAHs'' and ''URAHHs'' that they were made to yell during training, and all the pep talks and motivational speeches given to them about how they consist of than 1% of the population, etc., etc. And this doesn''t...

Q: 

We had the party, do we want to sign the papers?

A:  IANAL but I am gay-married in California. This is also where I got gay-married, and am still considered as such, since we got in during the window of legality in 2008 before prop 8 passed. (We were also gay-married in Canada but I''m not sure that has any bearing on anything, unless we move to Canada.) Since IL doesn''t recognize it, the effect will be nil. In the eyes of the state of Illinois, you will be just as single as you were before your wedding in DC/IA/MA. In California it''s more complicated, because we have to file as married for our state taxes, but single for our federal ones. It''s a pain but TurboTax seems to have it all figured out. Especially because IL doesn''t recognize it, you will still need to do wills and powers-of-attorney and all that stuff, if you haven''t...

Q: 

Why do ppl act like it's so easy to just give a child up for adoption after 9 months of carrying?

A:  It''s important to do what is best for the child. In some cases, that will be giving him or her up for adoption. The right choice is not always the easy choice. No it''s not easy... It was the hardest thing that I ever had to do. I know that she is going to have a better life with her adoptive family. It''s an open adoption and seeing her grow up in a loving family is all I could ever want for her. Yes it was hard and it does get easier over time. I know that I made the best decision for her. She will always know who I am and when she''s older she can ask me whatever she wants to. I''ve written letters I get to see her at least once a year. I think open adoption is a wonderful thing. I gave a family a chance of a lifetime. Do I have any regrets about it... no. I...
