re: Washington Supreme Court unanimously rules against florist in gay wedding case - Ex-Popcorn
So, the florist can refuse to serve everyone with brown shoes, black hair, under 5'9", etc. But, she MUST serve someone who holds hands with other dudes. Thank god the libertarian in me can laugh out loud at this crap....

re: 9th Circuit Ruling and Specific Scenario - Ex-Popcorn
How is the analysis of the word "entry" within the statute and the EO not relevant??? That analysis would reveal that the EO ban does NOT apply to lawful permanent residents. Did you even read the text of Judge Gorton's decision?...

re: 9th Circuit Ruling and Specific Scenario - Ex-Popcorn
But the EO issued by Trump does not apply to lawful permanent residents: "On February 1, 2017, the White House distributed a memorandum to the Acting Secretary of State, the Acting Attorney General and the Secretary of Homeland Security clarifying that Sections 3(c) and 3(e) of the EO do not appl...

re: 9th Circuit Ruling and Specific Scenario - Ex-Popcorn
[quote]Can you point to where that supercedes the Constitution?[/quote] For the specific EO issued by the president, it doesn't have to. There must first be due process rights for non-citizens who claim they have been deprived the alleged "right" to enter the United States. That is not a proper...

From Judge Gorton's Ruling: "c. Count III: Due Process claim The power to admit or exclude aliens is a sovereign prerogative” and aliens seeking admission to the United States request a “privilege.” Landon v. Plasencia, 459 U.S. 21, 32 (1982). It is “beyond peradventure” that “unadmitted and n...

9th Circuit Ruling and Specific Scenario - Ex-Popcorn
The 9th circuit's ruling on due process is strange to me. They ruled that legal residents abroad have a right to notice and hearing before they can be denied re-entry to the United States. That seems completely contrary to the statute, which to me, supersedes due process rights. For instance, w...

re: Obtaining a rental when involved in an accident where other party is at fault - Ex-Popcorn
[quote]Get clarification on on what they'll allow for the rental and go from there. If you ask for OEM parts you may get them, you may not. If your wife drives a 2009 Suburban, you'd be less likely to get them due to the age of the vehicle. However, It never hurts to ask, and you'll never get what y...

re: Obtaining a rental when involved in an accident where other party is at fault - Ex-Popcorn
OP - you need to contact the repair shop and tell them that you will not accept anything other than OEM parts. The other insurer will be working with them attempting to get them to use cheaper, replacement parts. Again, that may be what they would do for their own insured per contract, but that ...
