24 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

And I've only been here five hours... I've got two and a half days left!!!!!!! I'm not even getting called... I just get to sit in the waiting room. The least they could do is put me on a..drumroll....JURY!! I can only read the same magazines so many times. Lucky for me they have computers so I can catch up on long lost emails and off topic visajourney!! I guess I should be proud to serve my country.. or something......... :whistle:

I guess I got lucky when I went to Jury Duty. Got called up within the hour and was seated on a jury the first day. The trial lasted a day and a half (including reaching a verdict). And that was that. All in all a good experience.

But if you just sit there and wait, that must indeed suck...

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).

jigga got called for jury duty shortly after i got to the states. it was only for a day, thank goodness.

its was surprising because he'd only had his citizenship a little over 6 months when the notice came.

he came home and said it was boring as heck.

my dad got called that same week (back home) but since he's a police reservist, he's exempt.

You are there to judge the person and the LAW itself. Remember that.....

"America's Founders worried that the government they created might someday grow too powerful, and begin to pass laws which would violate the rights of the very people it was intended to protect: ordinary, peaceful, productive folks. But they kept an "ace in the hole", a trump card they believed citizens could use to hold this new, experimental government in check. That ace was the right to a trial by a jury of one's peers.

How a jury can restrain a government? The key is that juries can say "no" to bad laws and to arbitrary and unjust prosecutions. It's true!"

Jury Veto Power


"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."
