• The coming blue wave will extinguish the Trump flame of power, or will it?

    Best answer: Look, until we have the election, no one knows. Do non-republicans hold a deep disgust and distrust of the Republican Party and Donald Trump right now? Definitely.

    Best answer: Look, until we have the election, no one knows. Do non-republicans hold a deep disgust and distrust of the Republican Party and Donald Trump right now? Definitely. Will that lead to major changes in the upcoming election? Maybe. I hope so but then, I never though a clown like Donald Trump could ever make it to getting elected US President in the first place, for the very same reasons that there is so much disgust and distrust now.

  • Is the royalty from Britain the most supreme leader in Canada, with constitutional veto powers over laws enacted by Parliament?

    Best answer: The Queen of the United Kingdom is Queen of Canada, As Queen of Canada, she can veto laws passed by Parliament. In practice, she appoints a Governor General to do her job when she isn't in Canada, which is of course nearly the whole time, and the Governor General (who these days is always a Canadian suggested by the Prime Minister) has a veto. The simple answer to your question is yes.

    In reality, she just wouldn't, because that would be undemocratic. When Parliament has decided something, who is the Queen, who wasn't elected, to say no? She understands that perfectly well, and even in the UK, she takes the view that she should keep out of politics and never say anything in public about her views. She COULD say no, otherwise why do laws go to her for Royal Assent? The possibility exists that she could say no, there is nothing to stop her saying no, but she just wouldn't.

    No monarch in the UK has done it since 1708, and even then, Queen Anne only did it because she was advised to. If it were done in Canada, most likely this would result in calls to dump the monarchy and have a republic.

    The furthest the present Queen has ever gone in getting involved in politics was in Australia in 1975, when Parliament couldn't agree a Budget and the country was heading for government shutdown. Sir John Kerr, the Governor-General, asked the Queen for advice, apparently she said "you do what you like", and he used the royal power to sack the Prime Minister, appoint Malcolm Fraser, the leader of the other big party, instead on condition that he asked for an immediate general election, of course Fraser did (why else did he engineer the whole situation in the first place?) and so there was an immediate general election. That broke the deadlock and got government moving again.

    That was OK, because of course calling an election doesn't say anything about what side you're on. The Queen was a very convenient nuclear bomb to drop on the situation. But that's as far as she will ever go.

  • Why Do Some Trump Supporters Defend Trump On Everything?

    Best answer: Well, you are the rare conservative who can admit that you elected someone for some of this positions, but you don't agree with everything he's done. That's honest, and I respect that. I wish some other conservatives didn't act like they'd drunk the Koolaid and it destroyed their brains.

  • Is it true that the United States is the best country in the world?

    Best answer: No. What makes the U.S. good for someone trying to find a better life is that it is unable to get all of its farm work done by its own citizens. This is bad for the U.S., but good for anyone from another country who needs a job and is willing to do farm work in the U.S.

  • What kind of a agency or any sort of government office trains disabled people for a job?

    Best answer: I worked for Social Security - a federal agency - for 32 years. The office I worked in had two training classes for claims reps who were legally blind.

    Best answer: I worked for Social Security - a federal agency - for 32 years. The office I worked in had two training classes for claims reps who were legally blind. I have to think that there have been many more in offices in other states. Social Security also had/has many disabled people on their staff; their training is the same as the training given to the non-disabled.

    In my office alone there is a guy in a wheelchair, one who was totally blind at birth, one who had grand-mal epileptic seizures at the office (he has since died from a fall at home), a person with cerebral palsy whose speech was unintelligible - she input death notices and had other assignments which didn't require contact with the public - a man whose diabetes caused him to lose the sight of one eye (previous to employment with SS), was on kidney dialysis and had a kidney transplant and a foot amputated (he still works there). A woman who had had polio and used steel crutches. I'm sure if I took more time, I could think of other examples - these are just off the top of my head - and also just in my one office.

    I don't know about state, county or city agencies but I do know that if a disabled person can do the job then it wouldn't prevent them from becoming employed by the federal government. Training is provided just like it is for any other employee. The only thing different for the legally blind classes was the equipment needed for them to use in doing the job of a claims rep.

    VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION is a state agency which tests and trains the disabled and helps place them IF they think they can be employable.
