    Yes. The "Dandy Seroquels" of America are also registered voters.
    They are allowed to vote, but not allowed to sit on a jury. Figure that one out.

    Italy's economy is tanking – we know, we're selling their building equipment
    Jonnie and Derek Keys run their vehicle auction company from the Irish village where they grew up – but it has a global reach

    Now for my daily kvetch:
    CNN, please remove the share icons from the mobile site.
    There is no reason to have them twice, and it makes my pages load slower and makes the text display wonky.
    Thank you.

    Oh, and I cannot wait for the debates tomorrow.
    Hetting the Kettle ready, lol.

  7. Well

    It's about that time. (listed reg's arriving right on time) Do all of you live on the West coast? 🙂
    Well. What do you think of people who are deemed unfit to decide simple law cases as jury members, but are by the same token deemed fit to decide who shall lead. (anything or anyone)

      Good morning@saywhat.
      Yes, that was Philip.
      And yes, I'm still having problems, hence the "daily kvetch"

      I say a lot on my own initiative; sometimes people just don't like what I have to say.
      No matter.

      I eagerly await these debates.
      Like I previously stated, I have the kettle waiting, lol.

    As if she has never commented on me, @saywhat.
    And, let's have YOUR view.
    Should a person deemed unfit to serve on a jury be allowed to vote? Why or why not?

    Was it before or after Church and State were seperated that polling booths were relocated to churches?

    May I ask where the information that it is against the law to serve on a jury when one is taking SSRI's came from?
    I know there is a law in England saying one can't, but I cannot find any evidence of any such law in any of the States.
    Is it a Federal jury law?

      @banasy, I'lll step in on that one about jury duty. The UK is trying to lift the ban of folks that take SSRI's not being able to serve on a jury. The US has no such law. Many people are prescribed SSRI's for a variety of reasons and they are not "mentally ill." 70 percent of people that are prescribed SSRI's in the states are female and 30 percent male. Clinical research proves that males in general feel more stigmatized and tend to find solace in alcohol. I will be watching the debate tomorrow with a group of friends both Republicans and Democrats. If screaming and shouting occurs, I'm out of the debate party. I refuse to get all worked up over Politics and religion.

    Is it wise to have busloads of mental health patients taken from their 'Health and Wellness' living center communes down to church to vote? These folks need reminded to take their meds! Do you REALLY want people under the influence of drugs to decide who should even walk the dogs today?
    Our electoral process is just a show...an opportunity for millions to 'prove' they are US CITIZENS. by voting. And voting for men they hardly know, and/or men they know are crooks and womanizers.
