Oh dear Teddy, did you run out of meds again?? You have been sort of behaving for a while! Guess it was too good to be true.
So, please enlighten me as to how requiring proof of citizenship would disenfranchise anybody who is legally eligible to vote. And why single out college students and the elderly?
Mr. Cline makes an extremely valid point regarding persons who are receiving welfare not being eligible to vote. After all, that is rather a conflict of interest, is it not?
Oh, and Teddy? Perhaps if you were to address the facts, clearly, succinctly and without all of the rhetoric, you might get some attention, as well as respect.
"But can you guess what I would do if I were Northwestern, or any other college, and I lost that appeal?"
Hmmm, abolish the entire athletic program?
I know that is what I would do. Furthermore, in my opinion, any athlete who is playing on a scholarship and complains, or wants to be paid, would automatically lose their scholarship. Education is very expensive and if athletics are going to cause this type of consternation, then the scholarship money should be awarded to academic scholarships instead.
I am in complete agreement with Mr. Rhea!!!
Yesterday, I watched a small suv try to navigate the corner into Basha's shopping center, while the driver had his head resting on his right shoulder holding his phone so he could hear, and smoking a cigarette, as well.
Perhaps G. Wayne would like to outlaw smoking while driving too!!
"Big city shenanigans"?? Seriously?? The law is the law, and right is right, and wrong is wrong. There are no shenanigans, big city, or otherwise in court.
Pat is right, Cahill needs to go as well.
Ha, thanks for the compliment (I think) Pat!! But, since these are young girls..not likely. Especially since the day before, the young guy at the register, gave me the senior citizen discount without my asking for it!! OUCH!!!
Truly they need to open up that wall between the shopping center and Carl's Jr. Parking and drive thru are absolutely ridiculous! It is only a matter of time before accidents start happening.
And just a pet peeve with me...I absolutely hate when some young person calls me "hon". There are 2 places in town where it happens, Carl's is one of them. Please Managers, instruct your employees on proper forms of address for customers.
Ok, here's a laugh for all of you...
I had a wired keyboard and mouse which finally went to the big electronics graveyard in the sky about 3 months ago. So, hubby went to Wally World and bought me (what he thought was) a nice HP wireless keyboard and mouse. Of course, being wireless each piece gets its power from batteries. So, I enjoyed the lack of wires and was pleased with this change. About a month after I got it, the keyboard stopped working. I changed the batteries. No fix. I pressed the little reset button on the bottom of the keyboard. No fix. Changed the batteries in the mouse. Still no fix. Fiddled with both for a bit. Yep, you got it, still no fix!! I am certain that I am not the only one who has ever considered taking a hammer to their keyboard!! Yep, I was just about there!! In sheer frustration, I banged the mouse down on the desk and asked it why it wouldn't work!! Oh my...that fixed it! Yep, both started working! Now, I've got this whole routine worked out. It stops working. I take the batteries out of the keyboard, jiggle them around in the slot a bit. Put them back in place, Press the reset button. Remove the mouse batteries. Put them back. Then REALLY hard bang the mouse on the desk, and voila!!! Works every time!! Drives my "healthy and gentle respect for electronics" hubby, bonkers!!!
Egads! If Judge Duber is so proud of himself and his accomplishments, why on Earth would he feel the need to make such a comment about Tim Wright?
Gila County needs some representation from Payson; instead of the whole "good ole boy network" down in Globe.
Maybe "you can’t save all the puppies.", but you also can't teach an old dog new tricks. 28 years on the bench is an awfully long time.
"1.Do you think that no-knock warrants, with all their possible ramifications, and their long history of bad, results, are wise?"
No, for exactly the reasons that you cited, as well as, so many others. Unless surveillance has been conducted for more than a week with constant "eyes on the house" the police have no way of knowing who is and is not in the house. Furthermore, unless the suspect has been seen to be selling or dealing illegal drugs or guns, the police have no proof other than the word of a person who has proven motivation and incentive to lie. Blasting in to a house with little or no idea what is on the other side of the door has already proven to have disastrous results for the police. As for the Deputy who was killed? Typically, the teams that serve this type of warrant are well trained and each team member is well aware what his or her responsibility is going to be during an operation such as this. Personally, that Deputy may not have agreed with the process, professionally, he had a job to do and a responsibility to his team.
"2.Do you think that no-knock warrants, which skirt very close to the edge of the Fourth Amendment right against undue search and seizure should be issued at all? And if you think they may properly be issued, do you think there are sufficient restrictions placed on how, when, and why they should be issued, and how they may be carried out?"
Short answer? Absolutely not!! A persons home is their sanctuary and whether they are a criminal or a righteous, law-abiding citizen, we each have a right to expect our fourth amendment right to be respected; and until and unless the police have indisputable proof of unlawful activity being conducted inside a home, via their own surveillance and knowledge, and not based on the word of a person who has already proven themselves to be not of the highest moral character, this type of warrant is, in my opinion, illegal, and in violation of several laws and rights. As for restrictions? Seriously? We all know that there are ways around any restriction that may be placed.
Yep Tom, I agree with Bernice. My hubby has told me more times than I can count, the difference between "X"-ing out of a window and using the "back" arrow. Still, any idea how often I lose a screen because I hit the wrong one?
