Not talking to the police: But what if you get pulled over?

First, let me preface this by saying I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV.

A few people asked, and I had also been pondering the question: What do you say to an officer if you are pulled over for a traffic stop?

I realized the first video had the best response, “I’ll answer on condition of immunity.”

That’s the advice the lawyer guy gave to a friend who was being investigated by the IRS, and from the safety of my computer chair, seems like a good response to give when you are pulled over on the street, and the officer walks up and asks, “Do you know why I pulled you over?” or “Do you know how fast you were going back there?”

Because, if you confess or deny any wrongdoing, the policeman can use that against you either way. But saying you’ll answer on condition of immunity, he’ll either laugh and let you off, or pull you out of the car and taze you. Either way, make sure someone’s go the video recording so we can watch it on YouTube!

Nancy Peolsi admits it will save the government money, if they can just keep Democrats from reproducing

Found this article on Tam’s website: ‘This Week’ Transcript: Nancy Pelosi

STEPHANOPOULOS: Hundreds of millions of dollars to expand family planning services. How is that stimulus?

PELOSI: Well, the family planning services reduce cost. They reduce cost. The states are in terrible fiscal budget crises now and part of what we do for children’s health, education and some of those elements are to help the states meet their financial needs. One of those – one of the initiatives you mentioned, the contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government.

STEPHANOPOULOS: So no apologies for that?

PELOSI: No apologies. No. we have to deal with the consequences of the downturn in our economy.

Ironically, the folks most likely to take advantage of those services are most likely to be Democrat. In addition, statistically, Democrats have smaller families than Republicans. So, with this bit of “economic stimulus,” the Democrats are funding a huge reduction in their own voter base.

Which — hopefully — means the next generation will be overwhelmingly conservative, and liberals will be quite the minority. If that conservative majority manages to eliminate all this big government, it actually will have a positive effect on the economy.

So, perhaps blowing hundreds of millions of dollars on killing Democrats will be beneficial to the economy after all!

(Or, is this why they are trying so hard to let all the illegal immigrants stay in the country – so they’ll still have a huge constituency nursing off the government teat?)

Update on the questions surrounding Obama’s eligibility to be President of these United States

Previously, I mentioned the controversy surrounding Obama’s birth. World Net Daily now has a nice summary of the inquiries into his qualifications.

One thing to remember: Politicians hate telling the truth, because they prefer doing shady stuff and getting away with it. Among the key points about Obama’s past:

  • Some allege his birth took place in Kenya, and his mother was a minor at the time of his birth – too young to confer American citizenship. They argue Obama’s father, Barack Obama Sr., was a Kenyan citizen subject to the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom at the time and would have handed down British citizenship.

    There also are questions raised about Obama’s move to Indonesia when he was a child and his attendance at school there when only Indonesian citizens were allowed and his travel to Pakistan in the ’80s when such travel was forbidden to American citizens. Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation petitioned Occidental College with a demand for its records concerning Obama. The records would state whether Obama applied for admission as a US or foreign nationa. Obama has prevented the records from becoming public.

  • Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation petitioned Occidental College with a demand for its records concerning Obama. The records would indicate whether Obama applied for admission as a US or foreign national.
  • “The document published on the Internet by Obama’s campaign, the “Certification of Live Birth,” as no more than an effort to “quash” questions. Other critics have noted the state of Hawaii granted such certifications to parents of children not born in the state at the time. “
  • When applying for a job in the United States, the applicant is required to prove citizenship, but”Obama has refused to submit certified copies of any of his original long form ‘vault’ birth certificates in Hawaii to any public officer or to any Petitioner. Relevant records in Kenya have also been officially restricted,” she said. “Obama has sealed all educational records which might reveal his stated citizenship. These include Punahou High School, Occidental College, Columbia University, and Harvard Law School.”
  • The governor’s office in Hawaii said there is a valid certificate but rejected requests for access and left ambiguous its origin: Does the certificate on file with the Department of Health indicate a Hawaii birth or was it generated after the Obama family registered a Kenyan birth in Hawaii?

So Hawaii could have looked at Obama’s Kenyan birth certificate, certified it, and then gave him a Hawaiian certificate of live birth which basically affirms the details of the Kenyan certificate, like an ID card. Here’s another note on being a US Citizen in Hawaii.

Seems as though he does nto qualify!
