Gen. Franks Doubts Constitution Will Survive WMD Attack

"John O. Edwards, NewsMax.com
Friday, Nov. 21, 2003
Gen. Tommy Franks says that if the United States is hit with a weapon of mass destruction that inflicts large casualties, the Constitution will likely be discarded in favor of a military form of government.
Franks, who successfully led the U.S. military operation to liberate Iraq, expressed his worries in an extensive interview he gave to the men’s lifestyle magazine Cigar Aficionado.

In the magazine’s December edition, the former commander of the military’s Central Command warned that if terrorists succeeded in using a weapon of mass destruction (WMD) against the U.S. or one of our allies, it would likely have catastrophic consequences for our cherished republican form of government.

Discussing the hypothetical dangers posed to the U.S. in the wake of Sept. 11, Franks said that “the worst thing that could happen” is if terrorists acquire and then use a biological, chemical or nuclear weapon that inflicts heavy casualties.

If that happens, Franks said, “... the Western world, the free world, loses what it cherishes most, and that is freedom and liberty we’ve seen for a couple of hundred years in this grand experiment that we call democracy.”

Franks then offered “in a practical sense” what he thinks would happen in the aftermath of such an attack.

“It means the potential of a weapon of mass destruction and a terrorist, massive, casualty-producing event somewhere in the Western world – it may be in the United States of America – that causes our population to question our own Constitution and to begin to militarize our country in order to avoid a repeat of another mass, casualty-producing event. Which in fact, then begins to unravel the fabric of our Constitution. Two steps, very, very important.”

Franks didn’t speculate about how soon such an event might take place.

Already, critics of the U.S. Patriot Act, rushed through Congress in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, have argued that the law aims to curtail civil liberties and sets a dangerous precedent.

But Franks’ scenario goes much further. He is the first high-ranking official to openly speculate that the Constitution could be scrapped in favor of a military form of government.

The usually camera-shy Franks retired from U.S. Central Command, known in Pentagon lingo as CentCom, in August 2003, after serving nearly four decades in the Army.

Franks earned three Purple Hearts for combat wounds and three Bronze Stars for valor. Known as a “soldier’s general,” Franks made his mark as a top commander during the U.S.’s successful Operation Desert Storm, which liberated Kuwait in 1991. He was in charge of CentCom when Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda attacked the United States on Sept. 11.

Franks said that within hours of the attacks, he was given orders to prepare to root out the Taliban in Afghanistan and to capture bin Laden."

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Police can search a parked car for drugs, guns or other evidence of a crime while arresting a driver or passengers nearby, the Supreme Court ruled Monday.

The high court has already ruled that officers can search a car when arresting someone inside, and the same rule now applies if a motorist or passenger gets out of the car.

The 7-2 ruling addressed a common situation, in which police pull over a suspicious car or come upon it while it is parked. Sometimes motorists get out of the car before an officer approaches, and it was not clear until now whether police had leeway to search the car.

"In all relevant aspects, the arrest of a suspect who is next to a vehicle presents identical concerns regarding officer safety and the destruction of evidence as the arrest of one who is inside the vehicle," Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist wrote.

Once told he is under arrest, a suspect outside a car could still lunge inside for a weapon, Rehnquist wrote.

"It would make little sense to apply two different rules to what is, at bottom, the same situation," Rehnquist wrote for himself and Justices Sandra Day O'Connor, Anthony M. Kennedy, Clarence Thomas and Stephen Breyer. Justices Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg agreed with the outcome.

The ruling would apply only when a suspect was arrested close to a car, and would not apply to an abandoned car with no driver or recent occupant in sight.

Justices John Paul Stevens and David Souter dissented.

The new rule invites too many problems, Stevens wrote. "We are not told how recent is recent, or how close is close," he wrote.

The case involved the 2001 search of a Virginia man's gold Lincoln Town Car. He had been driving in Norfolk, Virginia, when an officer noticed his flashy car and ordered a computer check that found the tag was issued for a 1982 Chevrolet. Before the officer could stop Marcus Thornton to give him a ticket, Thornton pulled into a shopping center parking lot and got out.

The officer arrested Thornton after he found marijuana and crack cocaine in Thornton's pocket. After handcuffing Thornton, the officer searched the car and found a gun.

The case is Thornton v. United States, 03-5165."

California lawmakers protest pastor

SACRAMENTO, California (AP) -- State lawmakers staged a "domestic revolt" Monday, some donning kitchen aprons and scarlet "M's" to protest a pastor who characterized female legislators with young children at home as sinners.

Democratic Sen. Debra Bowen went barefoot on the Senate floor, bringing along a toaster and other kitchen accessories to her desk.

"Today, I'll be serving up a billion dollars in savings for PG&E customers, identity theft legislation ... along with bacon and eggs, getting my shopping list together and preparing to can," she said.

State legislators were offended by what the Rev. Ralph Drollinger, who leads a Bible study class for lawmakers, wrote during a Bible lesson in April.

"It is one thing for a mother to work out of her home while her children are in school," wrote Drollinger. "It is quite another matter to have children in the home and live away in Sacramento for four days a week. Whereas the former could be in keeping with the spirit of Proverbs 31, the latter is sinful."

Stores: Shrek ate our sales

"Retail trade group blames animated film's record box-office performance for drop in weekly sales.
May 25, 2004: 12:41 PM EDT



NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - A retail trade group is blaming the hit movie "Shrek 2" for eating into retail sales last week.

QUICK VOTE
What did you do last weekend?
Go shopping
See 'Shrek 2'
Something else


View results

The International Council of Shopping Centers said its weekly sales report showed retail sales fell 0.5 percent in the week ended May 22, compared to the previous week, which saw a fall of 0.8 percent.

Compared with the same week a year ago, sales rose 5.5 percent, but that was down from the 6.2 percent growth pace of the preceding week.

"As potential shoppers flocked to the theaters, chain-store sales were a little less robust," Michael Niemira, chief economist and director of research for the ICSC, said in a statement.


Did this guy keep shoppers out of stores?
"Shrek 2," an animated comedy about a green ogre, took in a record $128.9 million in ticket sales at U.S. theaters during the five-day opening that started last Wednesday, according to a report from trade publication Daily Variety.

But retail analysts said they doubted that Shrek or any other movie could hurt retail sales. "

LOL...this is sooooo lame! Look, B4 Bush...great economy...large national surplus...
during Bush...gas prices all time high, soldiers dying, Abu G. abuse, Patriot Act,
depression/inflation...etc...

What part of "post hoc ergo propter hoc" do these folks not get?

" Got a call 2 weeks ago from NCO. They said they were trying to collect payment for my husbands creditcard.(Never rec'd any letter or call from creditcard company that we were being sent to collections. Our account was in good standings.) They never asked once what relationship i was to the cardholder and starting giving me a line of bull crap.They said our house, car and whatever assests were in husbands name would have a lean put on them if they didnt collect a payment by aug 1st. They never asked what i could afford and demanded this certain payment. I gave them a post dated check with the option that they told me i could call and cancel on July 31st if i didnt have the full amount that they requested. So i called and cancelled it and NCO confirmed that they cancelled the payment and would not put it through. Today, I goto walmart and i couldnt use my debit card. I called the bank when i got home and sure enough NCO put the payment through unauthorized. I called NCO and they said i was insane that they needed 72 hours notice to cancel the check. NCO told me my husband had 8 judgements toward the creditcard, and that if the payment wasnt made the total amount due would triple, plus interest fees, and that my husbands wages would be garnished to where he would only bring home $50 a week until the balance was paid.I called the creditcard company and told them NCO refused any type of payment that i could make and they said i had to go through NCO. ( so i guess the creditcard company doesnt want their money if NCO is refusing payments and handling their accounts.) anyway, NCO said they were taping my conversation when i spoke to them, but when i asked to talk to the supervisor to make a complaint all of a sudden they found no record that i was being taped. NCO provides fraudulant information to people they are trying to collect from. When I asked NCO how they were able to give me information on my husbands account without verifying who i am such as an address, phone or anything they said under the FDCPA of state laws they could talk to the cardholder or spouse of cardholder. (whose to say i was the spouse if they never asked?)NCO employees are liars, I have first and last names of people and their phone #'s with extensions of who i talked to at NCO. I documented all the lies they told me. All I wanted to do is make a payment i could afford and they told me no,lies, and the bad part is, that the 5 of the 6 people i talked to were supervisors. NCO may want to invest in what type of employees they are spending money on, seems to me like they are losing money not making it."

Capital One Bank
Capital One Services
Capital One Fincancial Corporation
Capital One FSB

I can't find the registered agend to Capital One FSB. Called the Virginia Corporation Office and they told me to call 800-842-6929. Got to listen to lengthy recordings at the Office of Thrift Supervision, for the agent I need to call the bank. Which I don't have.

My statements are from Capital One Services and Capital One Financial Corporations, but the missing limit disputes were verified by Capital One FSB. I don't have a phone number. Thank you OTS!

Am I the only person to think that it's pretty screwed up to have to sue 4 entities over credit reporting and disputes of accounts issued by ONE company?

I realize that it doesn't matter what amount you give these people but I have a story for you..In 2002 I began paying ScotiaBank whatever I could afford at the time $100.00 here and sometimes more..They said that wasn't enough to pay the minimum, I said I am sorry but thats all I can do for the moment and if I was able to pay more then I would..Well last year 2003 in the month of October I decided to give them only $50.00...They cashed it so I was under the impression that they really had no choice but to accept it...Wrong...they wrote me a check for the same amount $50.00 and said that we were unable to accept your payment because it is not enough to meet the amount required (something like that)..I never did cashed it and don't plan too cause if I bring them to court it will look bad for them...Anyways they sent letters upon letters prior to that saying you are behind BLA BLA BLA...but I kept giving them an amount every month anyways...After they wrote me that check I then sent them 4 post dated checks for $125.00/month..They sent all of them back asking that if I didn't want my loan to go to collections they asked to pay $130.00 for 6 months...Last week I get a nice call from NCO collections saying I needed to pay X amount of money to them...At this point I am confused...I politely asked the girl if my loan is in collections why wasn't I notified in writing..She says oh we did send you a letter last week...2 weeks has passed and still no letter..I simply told her that unless you have eveything in writing you and I aren't conducting any business and that is my right..She would'nt even give me the company address...I told her well i guess you don't want my money and that maybe your company might be a fraud what do you say anout that...Well she hung up...Anyways does anybody know this company or has anybody had dealings with them concerning student loans I really would love to know..

\"Using checking account(check-by-phone

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Before I got literate on Capitol One and their affilliate NCO collections, I offered them 400 on a 1200 debt. They said they would accept if I would get the payment in today. I tryed to get the money out of my bank to pay by W/U but banks were closed and atm was maxed out for the day. I decided to use check by phone and got Mrs. Peggy Henson of NCO to admit she would not use this information to persue future debts and she would delete it after processing the payment. I also asked her to make sure that the file was deleted from my file. I received the fax she sent to sign and the way it was worded, I got screwed. The letter read as follows....
This letter is to inform you that the above client will accept the amount listed above as settled in full if payment is received by Dec. 31, 2003. Peggy's direct number is 1888-873-4709. She is the department head of collections for NCO. Before I got in touch with her, I was contacted by a rude and unprofessional black man from them. Please read the letter I sent to them after settling.

Re: Formal request for reconciliation for the misbehavior of Lee Moore

To Whom It May Concern:

As you know, Lee Moore, Division Case Mgr for NCO, contacted me on several occasions. Talking to Peggy Henson, she acknowledges and agrees with me that what Mr. Moore continued to do was wrong. I asked for a written apology for the below things and have not received one yet. Because of the failure to do so, I feel that further reconciliation is necessary.

There is also a matter of unlawful use of my personal credit report. First, it was obtained without me being notified. Mr. Moore continued to read off items that are in my report that did not pertain to this case. He was boasting that he has reviewed my total report and went on to tell me how bad mine was. I demand that my report be removed from his possession. Several times during our conversations did I tell Mr. Moore that he was harassing me with the things he was saying and for him not to call me back. He said he knew his boundaries and he was doing what the law permitted. He said he was going to call me everyday, day and night, until this debt was paid. Some of the highlights of Mr. Moore’s comments while on the phone were as follows.

Mr. Moore was very unprofessional during our whole conversation every time he gained contact with me. I calmly told him that I was using an attorney to handle this matter and he should direct everything to him. He then told me that what I needed to do is pay this debt, or he was going to place a lien on my house, garnish my check, and make sure I never buy anything on credit again.

His remarks consisted of profiling people in the southern region of the US by saying things like (you people down there never pay your bills, that’s why we have so many claims for your area). When I informed him of my recording the phone call for legal purposes, (man, what you talking about, you are too broke to pay your own bills, much less afford a tape recorder)

The conversation went on like this for about 20 minutes. When I asked to speak with his supervisor, he refused and said I wont let you till you spell it out loud, because all yall cant spell anyway, and that the only thing I need to do is give him my checking acct. number so he can deduct x amount of dollars from it. He would not allow me to talk and explain anything. His racial remarks did not help his situation either.

I have approximately 38 minutes of conversations with him and Mrs. Henson of NCO, which will be more than sufficient in Alabama Court. Mrs. Henson has heard portions of the tapes and states that they were recorded on her end too. I am prepared to forward this matter to the Federal Trade Commission, my attorney, and to the original creditor to let them know what kind of people they have collecting for them if I do not receive a prompt response.

Please respond to this letter in writing with a suitable offer to reconcile this before further action is taken. I have never sued anyone in my life, but his actions were unacceptable. Please respond promptly and in my favor within 30 days upon receipt of this letter or I will be experiencing my first time.
