Re: Re: Would police checkpoints make us all safer?
Just look at the checkpoints Israel set up to restrict Palestinian movement even between villages in the West Bank. Ordinary Palestinians definitely aren't any safer; instead, the opposite happened .. they are far less safe.
Aren't those checkpoints there to make Israelis safer?
Re: "It's more of a guideline than a rule really..."
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. Unless it's really important.
Re: Not if BMW, Audi, MB, Dodge drivers get to. ..
NEVER if the azzholes that drive BMW, Audi, Mercedes Benz, Dodge, Chevy trucks,Suburu WRT vehicles get to buy them.
Wow, how did you come up with that list? Seems oddly specific. Dodge but not Chrysler? Chevy trucks but not Ford trucks or Chevy cars? What about Ram (now it's not Dodge any more) truck drivers, are they azzholes? And I assume you mean Subaru WRX.
I've run afoul of it with the word "naked" (as in "naked genius" or "naked tree") and ads would not show on that page no matter what. That was the "bot" that crawls. It didn't like that I had a word related to adult content.
Even if it were specifically referring to humans not wearing any clothing that would not necessarily be adult content, which makes it even dumber.
Where does it say that the prez sets the number of judges on the SCOTUS?
US Constitution, article II, section 2, clause 2. The president appoints judges to the supreme court, with no limit set on the number of judges. Naturally if a president tried to pack a court these days the opposite party would stonewall in the Senate.
