Law enforcement officers don't have scheduled exams to take based on lessons given in classes that a student would miss during jury duty for who knows how long. Military is exempt because of officially ALWAYS being on duty.
Good guess, but it all depends on what you consider work.
This year, maybe. Last year, who knows. With a job like the President, I don't think you can realy compare the volume of work without considering the importance of it.
Technically, I put in a whole lot of hours when I was in the Navy, but I didn't really do much work.
The first year I was out I did more actual work per hour, and worked more hours than I ever had before. Ironically I was a government contractor.
I don't think Kerry would have served if there wasn't some way that it was going to benefit his political career, plus I'm sure Bush doesn't even have to respond to the summons (though he might for political reasons).
But beyond whether the President is much busier than a Senator, there are a lot of decisions that can be made in Congress with a single Senator missing... but without the President for an extended period of time is a different matter entirely.
Why the hell would you want our President serving on jury duty? Don't you think it's a wee bit a TOTAL WASTE OF FUCK*NG TIME EFFORT AND FOCUS? Especially when he has to , oh I don't know???>>>>>>>RUN THE COUNTRY and deal with our war?
Duh. The say Kerry did this but Bush did not....Whaaaaaaaaahhhhh!
Save it for the Bush haters. I'm still floored as to why you would post such a petty and mindless thread.
And beyond that, what attorney (regardless of what kind of case, whether they represent a plaintiff or defendant, etc.) worth his salt would actually not seek to knock out the friggin' President of the United States during voir dire?
LOL, looks like someone forgot to take his prozac this morning. Although the thread wasn't meant to floor you, I must admit that it is an interesting side effect.
This thread was started "tougue-in-cheek" and I was playing devil's advocate. I wouldn't want our president serving jury duty, nor would I want a senator serving jury duty.
My devil's advocate argument is that if he has time to do many other leasure activities, why not serve on a jury? If something came up that needed his immediate attention, he could be excused from the jury duty.
Do I think he realy should serve, am I really upset that he probably won't; no.
I wonder why you would post in here if you didn't like the thread, though I'm not exactly floored by it.
Oh, and it was also meant to see how pissed some people would get about saying anything other than something good about their hero who can do no wrong. I personally don't like very many politicians regardless of what side they're on.
