I believe the correct term is 'heifer': female, immature.

I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

Quote from: Wiki
HR5122 also known as the John Warner Defense Authorization Act was signed by the president on Oct 17, 2006 John Warner National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2007. Section 1076 Text of Hr5122 is titled "Use of the Armed Forces in major public emergencies". Removing the legalese from the text, and combining multiple sentences, it provides that: The President may employ the armed forces to restore public order in any State of the United States the President determines hinders the execution of laws or deprives people of a right, privilege, immunity, or protection named in the Constitution and secured by law or opposes or obstructs the execution of the laws of the United States or impedes the course of justice under those laws. The actual text is on page 322-323 of the legislation. As of 2008, these changes were repealed, changing the text of the law back to the original 1807 wording, under Public Law 110-181 (H.R. 4986, Section 1068,) however in signing H.R. 4986 into law President Bush attached a signing statement which indicated that the Executive Branch did not feel bound by the changes enacted by the repeal.

Take the quiz!!



Your PERSONAL issues Score is 90%.
Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 80%.

LIBERTARIANS support maximum liberty in both personal and economic matters. They advocate a much smaller government; one that is limited to protecting individuals from coercion and violence.  Libertarians tend to embrace individual responsibility, oppose government bureaucracy and taxes, promote private charity, tolerate diverse lifestyles, support the free market, and defend civil liberties.

In response to our request for comment Thompson sent Kotaku a copy of an emergency motion he filed with the court, this despite the ruling which states that only another attorney in good standing with the Florida Bar could file a motion for rehearing on Thompson's behalf.

In the motion Thompson outlines what he hints at as a perversion of justice, one that won't allow him, for instance, to meet with a potential client who he says is an inmate in a state prison.

Thompson also sent over a press release saying that the disbarment is in retaliation for, among other things, Thompson's Tyndale House book Out of Harm's Way which he says blew the whistle on what he describes as the Florida Supreme Court's attack on his activism against the American entertainment industry.

He's going to wind up in jail before this is done (if it's ever done).

Game Politics is leading the Happy Dance charge.  they're a pretty good read.

Quote
Noting that "The Court concludes that the facts, as even more extensively detailed in the referee's report, support the referee's numerous recommendations as to guilt," the justiecs of the Florida Supreme Court affirmed Thompson's offenses as delineated by Judge Tunis:

[Thompson] made false statements of material factto courts and repeatedly violated a court order
[Thompson] communicated the subject of representation directly with clients of opposing counsel
[Thompson] engaged in prohibited ex parte communications
[Thompson] publicized and sent hundreds of pages of vitriolic and disparaging missives, letters, faxes, and press releases, to the affected individuals
[Thompson] targeted an individual who was not involved with respondent in any way, merely due to "the position [the individual] holds in state and national politics;"
[Thompson]falsely, recklessly, and publicly accused a judge as being amenable to the "fixing" of cases
[Thompson] sent courts inappropriate and offensive sexual materials
[Thompson] falsely and publicly accused various attorneys and their clients of engaging in a
conspiracy/enterprise involving "the criminal distribution of sexual materials to minors" and attempted to get prosecuting authorities to charge these attorneys and their clients for racketeering and extortion
[Thompson] harassed the former client of an attorney in an effort to get the client to use its influence to persuade the attorney to withdraw a defamation suit filed by the attorney against respondent
[Thompson] retaliated against attorneys who filed Bar complaints against him for his unethical conduct by asserting to their clients, government officials, politicians, the media, female lawyers in their law firm, employees, personal friends, acquaintances, and their wives, that the attorneys were criminal pornographers who objectify women.

The Court also upheld a fine of $43,675 against Thompson.

The answer is never. They have never come back into style. It's just a select few douche bags who insist on wearing them up who keep it alive. It's a lot like Mullets. They were never in style, yet you can still see this abortion of a hair cut in the wild from time to time.

I went down to Montgomery, AL on business a few months ago and got to see a mullet in the wild.  I think they're on the protected species list.

Every popped collar I have been exposed to has been very steeped in irony.
