    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.

    Why on earth would a rocket need surgery?

    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?”

    Blaze: “No”

    Reader: “Is this binding on anyone’s actions in any way?

    Blaze: “No”.

    Reader: “Then how is this a ne….”

    Blaze: “GOVERNMENT BAD, THEY’RE TAKING YOUR EGGS!!!! AAAAAHHHH!!!!!!”

    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.

    S2BY2: Except, if it was announced on November 10, the election is already over.

    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.

    Baptisms on school campus directly after practice and set up by the Coach. Don’t you think that might make kids feel they are compelled to attend and participate?

    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.

    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.

    My opinion is that people who get divorced. (i.e. destroying the covenant you entered into between yourself, your spouse and God) Does more to destroy the “sanctity” of marriage than two gay people living together and getting the tax benefits of cohabitating.

    The timing coincides with sponsors jumping ship on Minnesota vikings. Also, the NFL ‘ S biggest sponsor Anheiser Busch spoke up yesterday and said they weren’t happy. When that happens things change.

    Employers don’t have to wait for due process.
