    I am a disabled veteran, did 6yrs 3mo total in the Army. I now work for Veterans Benefits Admin.(VBA). I got out 7/02, and my husband who is also a disabled vet didn't want me to work. So for 5 yrs I did nothing, which was driving me crazy. I started school w/ my Mont.GI Bill, found out about the work study program and started their. I wanted to see if this would be a place that I wanted to work. Did that & got to know the people & the environment. I did this for 7mo. I then applied for a job, from USA jobs.gov and was hired. I didn't have a degree, so I wanted to get my foot in the door. I did that starting as a GS-4, did my year, applied for another job, got that, and about to apply for another job that starts out as a 5-7-9, I am already a 5. So I should be getting my 7 very soon. My husband is going to school also for HR Mgt and Business Admin. He will have a double major and will be working from home for HR. So there are many ways to get hired with the government, you just have to know where to start, even easier for vets & disabled vets. The majority of people who work for the government have jobs that have nothing to do with their degrees. So don't try for the highest paying job, start low to get your foot in the door and let them know you want to work & are serious. If they are familiar with you it is even easier, they'll tell you to apply. You can even volunteer, or your spouse as well to get started. This way you can ask HR questions or other workers. This also applies for the Federal Building as well. Try work study, or maybe volunteer. That's how I started. I don't know where to go to find stay at home jobs, but VA & different military bases have jobs that stay at home as well. Good luck to all.

    To the Vet's, The Fed is always hiring, you just have to be willing to do the job or relocate or get a degree boarder patrol / BOP / ICE / FAMS do not require degrees as long as you have the skills that are needed. For every 10 apts. sent out you might get 1 interview and dont forget with the right skill set theres always contract work overseas.

    The Constitutionality and Legality of the arrest and or enforcement of any Law even if it was only to issue a Traffic Ticket.

    This is the question of discussion here.

    Anyone can challenge any Ticket, Arrest and or Incarceration on the grounds that they were not constitutionally legally arrested or not constitutionally legally issued a Traffic Ticket by proper authority.

    Please allow me to explain.

    Recently in a College Law class that I was taking I asked the Professor who is a Jurist Doctorate in Law and had been a Lawyer for 20 years and a Professor for 10 years the following question;

    What in the United States Constitution gives any level of government the Constitutionally Legal Right to create Law Enforcement Agencies and or Departments and for those Law Enforcement Agencies and or Departments to enforce the Laws of the United States?

    His answer was that the 10th Amendment of the United States Constitution which states;
    “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

    The Professor claims that because the United States Constitution does not specifically delegate the authority to the United States (Union) to Enforce (execute) the Law then this authority has been given over to the States because the United States Constitution also says “nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

    My Law Professor stated that this is what he was taught in the Law School that he attended and that this is what is taught in all Law Schools and Police Academies. Therefore it must be true.

    My problem here is that in the United States Constitution in Article 1, Section 8 says “The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defense and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States; To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;”

    As it is clearly stated that “The Congress shall have Power…. To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute (enforce) the Laws of the Union (United States)”.

    You may use this defense in any Court against any Ticket issued you as well as against any charge that you have been arrested for and or incarcerated for.

    If you were not arrested by the Militia when called forth to execute the Laws of the Union then you were not constitutionally legally arrested.

    We are taking into particular interest here in this subject matter from the lowest level of Law Enforcement being the College Campus and or University Police, Village and or Township Police to City Police, County or Parish Police or Sheriff, State Police or Troopers and of course Federal levels which include U.S. Marshall, F.B.I., D.E.A., Homeland Security, Secret Service, N.S.A., C.I.A. and any other secret Police that may be in existence for those conspiracy theorists who may be reading this.

    None of these Law Enforcement Agencies and or Law Enforcement Departments is Constitutionally Legal to enforce any Laws.

    The United States Constitution delegates solely the right of Law enforcement to the Militia and only when Congress calls them forth to do so.

    Now can any of you offer a challenge to this that is based in the verbatim of the United States Constitution?

    By the way, so far more than 100 other Law Professors have been unable to give any challenge to this that is based in the verbatim of the United States Constitution.

    So do not feel bad if you have no challenge to this that is based in the verbatim of the United States Constitution.

    But please chime in and let me know your learned opinion as a Professor of Law.

    I separated last September from active-duty US Navy. At this point I have 5 years/9 months of honorable service and a Master of Arts in International Relations (graduated with honors). My resume is vast and filled with accomplishments. I have been applying for government jobs for the past 6 months and the results have been absolutely negative; nothing at all. As a result, I am unemployed. I have given up on government/federal jobs and am actively exploring the private sector, although with little hope. It seems to me that the only way out is to join the Armed Forces again...

    Same response as everyone else. No government jobs available for this Army veteran in St. Louis, MO. Are government jobs only for those who recently get out of service and into the civilian population?
    Also, The government has such a long & exhausting application process for any possible job that takes forever to complete - and for what - sorry, no available jobs. Government is nothing more than politics = people elected to office as a status and not fighting for the people. Most politicians reap the benefits such as full coverage of health insurance and high salary, leaving the public to beg, borrow and steal (very sad).
    I blame the stakeholders of very large companies who demand large profits to put in their pockets, instead of helping their fellow Americans keep their employment. Can't stakeholders be happy with a small profit for a while, knowing they are keeping families fed and clothed. Shame on large company stakeholders who need/expect millions to make themselves happy, just so they can go on expensive vacations and spend money foolishly. Throwing people in prison who steal millions of dollars from hard working people just doesn't seem like justice, if their families can get the money from out-of-country bank accounts to spend freely. Same on those who take advantage of the common people by selling their products for huge profits or because of supply & demand. One large problem in America is the credit card companies who take advantage of people who are late in making a payment every now and then and increase the interest rate from 9.99% to 28%. Government should not allow this to happen. Who has more power in America? Credit card companies or our Government? Shameful tactics from credit card companies and other similar companies who take advantage of the people are a disgrace to America.

    I have to disagree with the Vets, I am a military spouse with an MBA who's always getting bumped out of the running because of veterans preferance hiring status. I had to start from the bottom and take the positions that the Vets turned down and work my way up through the system. I would encourage you all to keep applying becuase the hiring process is a lengthy one, it sometimes take 6 months to receive a call after you apply for a job.
