Monk. Most likely they have done studies and decided that danger to an employee is greater outside the store than inside. They then run the numbers to determine what percentage of the time an employee would be hurt/killed attempting to stop someone outside the store and add up the costs of worker’s comp and lawsuits from heirs of employees they would get when the employee is hurt/killed. After that they compare that number to the average amount stolen from a Walmart in a given year and there’s your answer as to what they will do. Walmart is a large Corp., it has no soul or feelings, therefore its actions and procedures are determined by $$$ only.

Measles vaccine is 97% effective. We rely on herd immunity to protect the 3 percent.

Right now the kids are in the physical and legal custody of Children’s Services. So they have every ability to vaccinate the children. Also, it is highly likely that these kids may be placed in a home with other children which are in Children Services’ custody. So they would have the duty to protect those children as well from unvaccinated children.
The more pragmatic course of action would be to wait until the TPR is finished and then have the kids vaccinated because then the parents would have no rights left regarding the children.
The parents have not lost their parental rights yet. If/when they do, their legal guardian can take care of that detail.
If Children's Services is concerned that they may already have custody of some infectious kids from outside the border ( or otherwise ), then they should take care to keep these un-vaccinated kids segregated and not dump them into a general population. If they get custody, it's their call. Until then, it's not.
Sounds like the parents are no angels, but rights are rights and can't be waived ' just because'. The State must show evidence and give grounds for terminating parental rights and go through the courts. They can't just assume that the parents rights have already been terminated because they want to do it.
So they would have the duty to protect those children as well from unvaccinated children.
Excuse me, but why would healthy vaccinated kids need to be protected
from healthy un-vaccinated kids?
Even if one of the un-vaccinated kids got sick...
the other kids are already vaccinated and thus protected if they get exposed.
(Hint: that's what vaccines are for.)

I agree with the other random comments in the middle of the scripture lesson comments. People need to chill the f out. It’s a carnival cruise line commercial.
Also, I don’t believe that the concepts of evolution and religion are mutually exclusive, so maybe that’s why I don’t think its such a big deal.

A person has the right to refuse to voluntarily provide information to an officer, that includes standing still while he takes your picture. So, if an officer says “hold still so I can take your picture”, while not being under arrest, you are being “detained” which has a similar legal effect. If you are being detained then you have a right to have counsel present and to refuse to cooperate. Now, that doesn’t mean a cop can’t take your picture, (you are in a public place after all) but he can’t force you to hold still while he does it.
Agree ranger. There is a caveat for life of the mother. Eptopic pregnancies occur and in that situation no one makes it if the pregnancy is not terminated. I went to a Catholic University and the rule of thumb the professor taught was “Whatever action which will lead to the creation of more Catholic babies is usually where the Church goes.” When the life of the mother is threatened they would be okay with abortion because the mother could always have more babies later.
I think goldencomando is combining a State prosecution of a DWI charge and the administrative action of taking a license because of a refusal. In every state in the union a person if arrested upon probable cause to believe they have committed a traffic related offense while under the influence and then refuses to provide a breath sample loses their license for one year. You can get a hardship which is why I think he brings up the 7 month thing. The reason they can do this is because driving is a privilege and not a right, which is also the reason it is “probable cause” rather than “beyond a reasonable doubt”. The son would have had an opportunity to fight the refusal determination by administrative hearing and could have appealed an adverse ruling to a County Judge.
This administrative action has zero connection with the a DWI charge brought by a county or municipal prosecutor. I would be interested in what happened with that charge given these facts.

The stupidest part is that you don’t even have to pray. One option is to thank the chef who prepared your meal.

Gas prices were $1.89 but the dow was trading at 7,000 or so at the time. The fact that gas is $2.40 (where I live) and the dow is trading at close to 18,000 is more impressive.
Also, no President cannot take credit for the majority of oil prices since most of the global supply/demand is set by OPEC. But that won’t stop Presidents on both sides of the aisle of both taking credit and placing blame on others for gas prices.

This is the stupidest attempt by the website to scare people.
Blaze: “Warning!!! Big government says stop eating raw eggs.”
Reader: “Did the pass a law criminalizing the eating of raw eggs?”
Blaze: “Well, no.”
Reader: “Did someone get prosecuted or penalized in any way as a result of this government agencies actions?”
Reader: “Is this binding on anyone’s actions in any way?
Reader: “Then how is this a ne….”
Blaze: “GOVERNMENT BAD, THEY’RE TAKING YOUR EGGS!!!! AAAAAHHHH!!!!!!”
Just loading up the bases. If I let my children eat cookie dough, teach them that the Bible is true, or instruct them that climate change is a hoax, Child Protective Services has a window to take them away from our abusive home.
No. This is just another example the Blaze is pointing out of the gov't involving themselves in things that aren't their business. There are many recipes that call for raw eggs, including Caesar salad, and it's really not the gov'ts business to make sure we eat what they think we should. Our tax money is spent to get these kinds of messages out. If you live in the USA and don't know raw eggs can be harmful then you are not paying attention. We don't need to spend tax money on this sort of thing.
Mo Def: Blaze: "Warning!! Big government says stop eating raw eggs."
Blaze: Government tells Americans to stop eating cookie dough.
Issues like this happens every year. The issues is the Gv making sound like they just discovered. When anybody with 'EXPERIENCE' knows. Is after you have done it. Or reported it multiple times. Is to create a standard pamphlet or document, or website to do to. Provide information. And send the people there. And as information. -- Even the PSAs are getting more like you are going to die mentality. Just listen to the PSAs. -- If you don't have a problem. The Gv PSAs if convince you do, or someone else has a problem. Imagine how many people start having problems from bombardment of making people afraid of everything.
Put this way. The Gv is trying to make everyone a hypochondriac. And if you are not one already. Do worry, they will make everyone one.
Then you should have no problem if the government has Bible studies, encourages Bible studies, suggest only Jesus Christ is the One True God, and encourages homosexuals and all other sinners to repent.
After all, no laws have been written.
Excellent MoDem! Spot on!!

Monk, I’ve heard they will be guarding the airport so the local police can focus on the areas of protesters.

Not true, missouri law did not allow Carnahan ‘ s name to be removed. Afterwords, the governor can appoint whomever they want to the vacant seat until there is a special election. In this case Jean Carnahan served for a year before she lost to Jim Talent. I do not recall a Republican challenge to the appointment but I was 19 so I might have missed it.

I saw the trailer this weekend at a movie. Looks to me to follow the bible. God can cause an earthquake so the fact that an earthquake causes the split in the sea isn’t an indication that they aren’t following the bible.
'The coach, who noted that some players left before the baptism took place'
' the event was something students had expressed they wanted'
I am here for the reading impaired and lofovomodem whenever.
You, also are a troll twit. Go back to trollville, you, also, wrecked my day by implying that someone is compelled to do something just because it is happening in the vicinity. If you don't want be around to watch something you don't want to watch, why would you be compelled to stay?
Kids have varying amounts of self confidence. I suspect many of those who attended the baptism only did it to avoid being called out for not being there or not having enough team spirit. Peer pressure is big in high school and school athletes experience more of it than the rest of the students.
Student lead groups are legal, as long as the student's lead this group, even if there was a teacher as a sponsor, or outside religious leader, if the group is student lead then it is legal.

Kid, 1. nice handle. 2. I don’t own a dog because both myself and my wife work full time and have 2 children. I recognize that I would not have enough time to properly train a dog so I choose not to have one. Also, I live in a subdivision which has leash requirements and doesn’t allow fences, so I would not be able to leave the dog out during the day. With the next house we are planning on getting into one with a fence or a place where we can build a fence so a dog might be an option.

Mr. Patriot, perhaps you could call the landlord and offer to pay for the replacement of the carpet and professional cleaning and repainting of the apartment the dog will cause over the course of this veteran’s lease. Not to mention replacement of any woodwork the dog bites or scratches during that time. Maybe you could also volunteer to field calls from all the other tenants who will call and complain about how they are not allowed to have dogs but there neighbor does. A dog (especially a puppy) will cause more damage to an apartment over a 1 year period than a typical security deposit will cover.

You really have got to be a very irresponsible pet owner and should never own an animal, they only do what they are allowed to do if they are paid no attention!

in other words he is dumb enough to buy a house where others tell him how to live! he probably visits a dominatrix or his wife wears pants, or votes democrat to be told how to live!

If everyone homeschools, then who works? I myself don’t have the luxury to not work and stay at home and teach my kids. Well I could, but then we wouldn’t be in home per se, it would be more of a “tent” that we move around until land owner’s chase us off.
I work from home as an accountant. You should check out this internet thing. It is revolutionizing work. Oh, and I'm a single mother, so if I can do it, anyone can.
Homeschooling is dependent on 3 fantasies
A) a stay at home parent
B) a parent intelligent and educated enough to teach.
C) an arrogant zealot convinced they know MORE than trained teachers.
I do not know ANYONE in NYC homeschooling their children.
Ever heard of school curriculum. Even a parent below average intelligence can use one of those.
