Under what circumstances might conscription be necessary?
I assume your question refers to The United States in our current circumstances, i.e. the War on Terror. I come from the Cold War generation that faced a universal draft. In fact, I volunteered for the army because I knew if I didn't I'd be drafted. I served through the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Berlin Wall. I was serving when President Kennedy was shot and we weren't sure whether there was a conspiracy or if the Soviets were involved. We didn't stop the draft until 1973, just two years before we finally gave up and got out of Vietnam.
Under what circumstances might conscription be necessary? Whether you agree with the war in Iraq or not, the bottom line is that our all-volunteer military is stretched perilously thin in Iraq and Afghanistan. We have not been able to capture Osama bin Laden or any of his higher ups. The War in Iraq has nearly sucked dry the energy of all the Armed Forces. We are extending tours for our soldiers, and some of our troops have done three tours so far in either Iraq or Afghanistan, with no end in sight. The troops we have are becoming exhausted, and enlistment rates are down, especially for the army.
Despite the Pentagon's own admission that our self sacrificing volunteer troops are nearing the breaking point, the present administration is rattling the saber at both Iran and North Korea over nuclear weapons and other issues, especially the mounting evidence that Iran is providing deadly weapons and training to terrorists in Iraq. Should we somehow end up in a war with either or both, where would the soldiers come from? It's at that point that I think conscription might be necessary. It could even become necessary should enlistment rates fall to the point that we can no longer supply the troops to keep up the "surge" in Iraq, if the next administration chooses to continue the fight. If the all volunteer force is too small and depleted to do the job, history shows that the government is likely to turn to conscription. It did in the Civil War and both World Wars, not to mention The Cold War and Vietnam.
The really big question is, what happens if the government tries to reinstate the draft? How many young people would obey the law? How many would burn their draft cards or flee? Do we conscript women? Should women fight? (They do now.) Do we have to agree with a war in order to fight it? Can those who don't agree say No? These are all questions I personally hope we never have to answer.
Under "normal" circumstances the police require a warrant. However, there are exceptions (as there are in ALL things) Several instances when which a search warrant is not needed: one might be when the police are in "fresh pursuit" - another would be "under exigent circumstances" - another would be if the occupant in charge of the premises gives their permission. Etc. - etc.
Adult braces with Medi-Cal In some cases, a child who is covered by a Medical Card benefit might be eligible for braces. There are circumstances under which Medicaid, or state funded children's health insurance programs, pay for braces. Children under 18 years of age can be covered under the Medical Card. Some states have additional programs that will cover youths up to age 19 or even those who are under 21. Therefore, some young adults…
If the expansion of presidential power has occured because of political events and has been fostered by public opinoon under what circumstances might presidential power be limited?
Although I'm sure that there may be some circumstance that someone can dream up, where perhaps, it might not be a sin; I'm afraid that under 99.99% of circumstances, yes, it would be a pretty serious sin. Moral theology speaks of this, and it can be a near occasion, or an occasion of sin, which might determine the gravity of the offense, but in most circumstances, it would be a very serious offense.
No. Felons are prohibited by federal law from owning or even possessing a handgun. It is possible, under some circumstances, for a felon to have his rights restored. Added: Actually . . . I believe that Texas MIGHT have some statute that DOES allow felons to possess firearms under very limited circumstances (e.g.: only in their residences) but have not researched the exact statute.
Are there any circumstances under which an investor might be more concerned about the nominal return on an investment than the real return?
No, not under normal circumstances, which is not to say that there might not occur extraordinary circumstances under which it might happen, but that would be up to the pastor, and would be most rare. Church teaching says that parents are the first educators of their child, and that there must be a reasonable hope that a child will be brought up in the faith. Without such a hope, baptism would be worse than useless…
Many people thought of conscription as a sign of loyalty to Britain, their mothercountry, and thought that it would also support those men who were already fighting. However, trade unions feared that their members might be replaced by cheaper foreign or female labour and opposed conscription. Some groups argued that the whole war was immoral, and it was unjust to force people to fight.
Using a balance to measure mass might be part of a scientific investigation, but by itself and under ordinary circumstances it does not amount to a scientific investigation. If you are on a different planet or on a moon, or if you were in the weightlessness of space, then doing this (or trying to do it) might be considered a kind of investigation.
