Q: 

Are the names of the United states trademarked?

A:  If the names are trademarked, who would you say owns the trademarks? I would think the individual states themselves, or the government as a whole.  Maybe an agency of somekind. In my opinion state names are generic identifiers for the state and when used to identify the origin of goods and services, states names are merely descriptive. That means that someone can take the name of a state, town, country and combine it with other words and possibly use it as a trademark if the combination is distinctive or acquires secondary meaning.   So "Georgia" would not be a trademark but "Georgia Bulldogs" or "Minesota Vikings" are...

Q: 

What are the laws in force in relation to the use of Taser stun or for self defense?

A:  In most states, you can take appropriate measures to defend itself. Generally, this means you do not want more power than a reasonable person would say the use was necessary in order to defend themselves. In all countries, you can force the same and no more than the force used on you. That is, if you are someone who works for you without a weapon, and they say: ''Give me all your money!'' This gives you no right to shoot and kill. You may not use deadly force to stop an attacker in order for Rob or hurt you. As leaders would do much better, the report about you dressed as zapping someone to kill her to steal. It is better to use non-lethal force, refer to yourself. The laws vary from state to

Q: 

Have the rights of natural parents been compromised for the sake of adoption permanency?

A:  Why on earth would an adoptive parent providing a secure, loving environment want meddling from the natural parent who could not handle the responsibility? If a natural parent wants involvement, they should commit to parenting and all the unglamourous things that go with it. For the sake of the child, sometimes it is better the natural parent is not involved in their life. The child does not need to feel abandoned, forsaken and other negative emotions when they have parents who are willing to care for them and provide for them, and sacrifice for them. Depending on the adoption agency a family works with can influence how the view of the laws are seen. Our 2 year old is adopted (as a baby) and the agency we worked with explained how the...

Q: 

What is the law regarding corporal punishment in school?

A parent, guardian or custodian of a compulsory-school-age childenrolled in a public school district may be requested to appear at school by the school attendance officer or an appropriate school official for a conference regarding acts of the child specified in paragraph (a) of this subsection, or for any other discipline conference regarding the acts of the child. Corporal punishment is statistically most prevalent in Mississippi schools 10 percent of the total school population were subjected to corporal punishment.

Q: 

Why is the ''drinking age'' in the USA 21?

A:  ha ha ha ha in Canada it''s 19 (in Quebec it''s 18) Sen. Tom Osborne told me that it is because that is when the brain is developed enough to handle alcohol with minimum risk of becoming an alcoholic. He stated that he read a lot of research on this (he originally wanted to reduce the drinking age to match the draft age) but after learning about the brain''s development, he changed his mind. He said that the research indicated that the younger a person begins to drink, the more likely they are to develop alcoholism, develop serious drug addictions, and to die in alcohol related accidents. He stated that 24 would actually be a better age, but that since 21 was already in place, he couldn''t imagine trying to increase it. I believe drinking...

Q: 

Need info about the obitual criminal laws in IN-how far back can they go?Any info on the law at all?

A:  It''s habitual, genius. And the genius criminal should have taken the deal. Prior felonies can be used to enhance, regardless of how old. If one time didn''t make him stop, crime is indeed a habit with him. Lock him up and throw away the key. In Texas, a 3rd felony is 25 to life. Your question is somewhat convoluted and unclear. I will try to respond to what I understand your question to be. Habitual criminals or recidivists can go back as far as the D.A. wants to. In California, a three strikes offender can be nailed for things he did three decades ago. That is one of the reasons I felt it was a bad law. In your case, being nailed for possession of a controlled substance, even if unintentional or ''innocent'', could still be tacked on as a habitual criminal or...

Q: 

When does the PATRIOT ACT expire?

A:  It doesn''t. Like *most* US laws, it is law until Congress chooses to change or repeal it. A few provisions of the law have sunset clauses in them, but the bulk of it does not. The poster above does not apparently understand the way the US legislative system works. A President does not get to "renew" a law passed by Congress. The Presidents authority is limited to either signing it after it has been passed, or vetoing it. Once a law has been passed by Congress and signed into law by the sitting President, it is beyond the touch of...

Q: 

Are people charged with their actions, or the results of their actions?

A:  Drunk drivers are usually charged with vehicular manslaughter, when they kill someone. This is ridiculous because you are making a choice to get hammered and get behind the wheel of an automobile that weighs a few thousand pounds. If you kill someone, it should be a more serious charge. I do feel that drunk driving violations should be based on blood alcohol level and not everyone treated the same. The PA case was handled poorly. Plus the victim was an adult who got into a fight with a bunch of kids. Evidence indicated he was the aggressor and engaged the group repeatedly. While they were not found guilty of murder, one kid did get substantial time. I will say this easy. Both, only sentence differently. You can''t wait till somebody get killed to charge the killer. For kids, no less should...

Q: 

What is the difference between the enforcement of criminal immigration and other crimes?

A:  I see no difference. If I break the law there are legal consequences. This is not a law is not applied. You do not know. Obama loves it, then it must good for them. Illegal immigration is also in medicine, that the Liberals should ''deal'' to create the world who have helped. I can not think of much worse than a crime to illegally into the United states to find a job. We would comprehensive immigration reform would have passed long ago. The situation is no better, no need to get healthy elle.Le sense in terms of an emotional reaction that leads to nothing stirring, except hatred and discord will be applied. There is no difference....

Q: 

How do you expect undocumented immigrants to follow the law without Amnesty, Civil Justice and Reforms?

A:  You really do not want to be here if Amnesty is forced on the American people against their will as it will spark a civil war here. BOTH sides will blame illegal Mexicans for breaking up our country and causing Americans to spill the blood of fellow Americans! Americans will be chasing illegals with pitchforks! You should go home and work to make Mexico a better country to live in, before you destroy our country! I do not expect you to follow the law. You have already proven you do not follow the law by coming here illegally you criminal. Amnesty is also another word for presidential pardon for crimes committed against America. The only thing I expect from an illegal alien is for them to go home. Stop calling yourselves undocumented...
