Q: 

Since we have such a large unemployment rate why is the US still issuing work visas?

A:  That''s a good question... WTF They issue work visas to people because the employer can''t find a suitably qualified candidate from amongst the citizenry. There have been a number of fascinating documentaries and reports recently. A great number of employers reported a preference for Polish people due to their skills and vastly different work ethic. Unfortunately, for the UK, the economic situation in Poland is getting better everyday and Poles are going back. because Congress never stopped it. and major industries would be very upset. since they tend to give large contributions to our representatives, they tend to be listened to....

Q: 

WHY is the media still calling these people ''missionairies''?

A:  The media uses the terms they think will have the most impact. Although it really shouldn''t, ''missionaries'' portrays an image of the brave and Godly braving the worst of conditions to bring their idea of the Gospel to the unsaved masses. Those fresh-faced boys with their white shirts and ties that come to my door with LDS propaganda are called missionaries. So are the groups that storm neighborhoods armed with copies of The Watchtower. And so were the priests that brought sorrow and sickness to the Native Hawaiians and our own Native Americans among others. It doesn''t seem to matter that they do more harm than good, The media takes a word and it becomes the gospel and they can inject whatever meaning they think will fly with the public. Why, for instance, would they call people who...

Q: 

Why do people quote the constitution?

A:  elastic clause my good friend. the elastic clause. It represents the laws of our land.Throw it out as you suggest and there will be no America. Is the constitution perfect - NO. It is better than anything else I''ve seen. The 14th adment has been expanded by a court ruling. If any state would make a law challenging that interpretation the Surpreme Court would have to revisit the ruling. Maybe they should have pushed Prop 187 harder. As for your refferance to muskets, Check out the # of weapons per capida that Switzerland has & their crime rate. Maybe you will stop preaching gun control & start preaching gun ownership! I''m not sure if you just emerged from your cave or just havn;t heard of "

Q: 

Why is Obama wanting to treat BP as though it were al Qaeda,is there illegals terrorists in the GULF?

A:  Obama a man who can talk, but an absolutely useless leader, or worker, he is through and through leftwing socialist out to destroy America and always on the look out to blame others and hope that ''bad'' news can be hidden Strange how BP is 39% American owned, why does he not mention this,Obama is a bad leader and a lapdog for the N.W.O. probably a muslim too..word is on the streets that he is allowing a Mosque to be constructed next to the twin towers.or the site where the WTC stood before the attacks..now if true it is the ultimate slap on the face to western democracy and to the souls and memories of the victims of 9/11 and the victims of global jihad perpetuated by Mohammedans worldwide against us the KHUFFARS.. The British are shaking their heads in wonder at this, from the President...

Q: 

Is the Death Penalty more costly than life in prison?

A:  There''s a claim that it is more expensive for the state to execute a criminal than to incarcerate him for life. Many opponents present, as fact, that the cost of the death penalty is so expensive (at least $2 million per case?), that we must choose life without parole ("LWOP") at a cost of $1 million for 50 years. Predictably, these pronouncements may be entirely false. JFA (Justice for All) estimates that LWOP cases will cost $1.2 million - $3.6 million more than equivalent death penalty cases. And life without parole prisoners face, on average, 30 or 40 years in prison while the annual cost of incarceration is $40,000 to $50,000 a year for each prisoner or more! There is no question that the up front costs of the death penalty are significantly higher than for equivalent LWOP...

Q: 

What is the role of the judge in a trial, if the jury decides whether the accused is guilty or not?

A:  Judges in the Legal System There are significant differences between the role of a judge in the common law system descended from British practice, and civil law systems descendant from continental European judicial practice. The descriptions below are necessarily archetypical. Details vary from judicial system to judicial system. In many cases, the judicial systems have experienced convergent evolution, expressly or unconsciously adopting similar practices or operating in a manner that minimizes the impact of formal differences between the archetypical role of each system''s judges. For example, while common law judicial procedure generally contemplates a single evidentiary trial, many cases are actually resolved...

Q: 

Why is it when two planes almost hit each other it is called a near miss? Shouldn't it be called a near hit?

A:  yea they should totally called it that YEP, MAKE SINCE TO ME. Yeah, like the difference between a parkway and a driveway. Grammatically speaking a near hit would certainly make much more sense. There are so many other oxymorons in our way of expressing things. For example, we saw a sign today for "leaf removal". Only one leaf, or many leaves? Shouldn''t it be leaves removal if they mean they''ll take all of them? We have a funny language! i would like to quote from joe dirt, " Kicking Wing: Why is that good? Joe Dirt: Well, duh, might as, might as well ask why is a tree good? Why is the sunset good? Why are boobs good? Man, firecrackers, ya stick ''em in mailboxes, you drop ''em in toilets, shove ''em up bullfrogs a**. Kicking Wing: I would never do that, because one...

Q: 

Why is US customs holding my passport that was sent from my embassy in djibuti?

A:  Good question. Maybe there''s something in your passport that is interesting. I''m pretty sure if there were nothing wrong, your passport would have just gone straight through. You said, "... from my embassy in Djibuti." You didn''t say that your passport was coming from the passport office in Djibuti. So if you''re not from Djibuti, why do you need your passport to go through an embassy? Additional question- Don''t you have an embassy here in Washington DC? Can''t they issue you a new passport? Not sure I understand the reason for your passport coming from Djibuti. Possibly neither can US Customs. How did you get here without a passport If lost, why aren''t you getting it here, from whoever How did you get in without a passport? Why is the embassy sending the passport?...

Q: 

Is marriage still relevant in the 21st century?

A:  I''m 22, still a virgin, had my first bf at 21... and so.. yeah. I think marriage is still relevant. Personally I see marriage as more than just sex, more than just living together. As a christian, I see it as a sacred, spiritual bond. For me, that bond must happen before the physical bond (aka, intercourse), and I want to give my body to my husband as a gift, meant only for him. So I think that if people have the right mindset, if people have the right attitude and maturity, then I think marriage is still strongly relevant in today''s society. I don''t think it is heading for extinction. It is not perfect but it is like anything else in life you get out of it what you put into it. I think the sexual revolution trashed the virginity aspect...

Q: 

Why is there such a problem with the civil rights and the constitution?

A:  Well let us ponder Wizard''s .How about Privacy . A given until 9/11 and the 7/7 bombings ,along with Iraq and the non existent "Weapons of mass destruction . For security''s sake we also gave up . The right to probable cause or federal warrant to tap any ones telephone along with the medical background''s of any /and/or all private individual. The right to a speedy trial and the right to the rules of the Geneva Convention were thrown out the window as well as so many others .I would get blisters on my fingers just thinking of printing all the political Re-evaluations as well the continual attacks on the constitutional amendments set forth by our forefathers . As for the sarcasm . The questioner is quite right . You as a populous should get your play station...
