United States[ edit ] In most cases in the United States, store employees and managers have certain powers of arrest. Store officials may detain for investigation for a reasonable length of timethe person who they have probable cause to believe is attempting to take or has unlawfully taken merchandise see shopkeeper's privilege. Store employees may also have citizen's arrest powers,  but absent a statute granting broader authority a citizen's arrest power is normally available only for felony offenses, while shoplifting is usually a misdemeanor offense. This punishment is categorized as " hadd ," meaning a punishment that restrains or prevents further crime.
Agriculture[ edit ] In his Senate campaign, Romney called for the "virtual elimination" of the federal Department of Agriculture  and for reductions in farm subsidies. So I believe in supports that will allow us to do that. In order to support increased market penetration and competition among energy sources, I am in favor of maintaining the Renewable Fuel Standard.
He proposed that struggling auto manufacturers should undergo managed bankruptcyafter which they should seek loans from the private-sector credit market with government-backed loan guarantees. Writing in an op-ed article published in the New York Times in November his original title had been "The Way Forward for the Auto Industry" but the editors published the article under the title "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt"  Romney said, "If General Motors, Ford and Chrysler get the bailout that their chief executives asked for yesterday, you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye.
He said that the government should sell its General Motors stock holdings quickly and should seek alternatives to what he called excessive automotive industry regulation.
But on this too it has been a failure. Political spending has been driven into secret corners and more power and influence has been handed to hidden special interests.
What is really needed is greater transparency, and disclosure, of campaign contributions — not more restrictions on political speech. Supreme Court had made the right decision in its Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission ruling, but that he did not like some of the consequences of it: I think their decision was a correct decision.
I support their decision. I wish we could find a way to get money out of politics. I hope it ends. We all would like to have super PACs disappear, to tell you the truth … I think this has to change. He said that he was "absolutely committed" to renewable energy and that "I think the global warming debate is now pretty much over and people recognize the need associated with providing sources which do not generate the heat currently provided by fossil fuels.
The plan also proposed to impose strict emissions standards on older power plants and sought to substantially reduce soot emissions from diesel buses, trucks, and heavy construction equipment. And that plant, that plant kills people. I will file legislation to protect our oceans from off shore drilling and commercial development.
The oceans should not be up for grabs like some Wild West land rush. When his lieutenant governor supported a temporary suspension of the state gasoline tax to provide consumers some relief during a period of especially high gasoline prices inRomney rejected the proposal, arguing that maintaining the tax would help encourage energy conservation: I am very much in favor of people recognizing that these high gasoline prices are probably here to stay and that the appropriate action for us to take is to find ways to find fuel conservation.
And number two, I believe that humans contribute to that. And the idea of spending trillions and trillions of dollars to try to reduce CO2 emissions is not the right course for us. Additionally, the plan called for expansion of coal mining and nuclear energy production.
Romney reiterated in the proposal that as president he would approve the Keystone XL pipelineto carry oil sands crude from western Canada to the U. Gulf Coast for refining. Instead of thinking in the federal budget, what we should cut -- we should ask ourselves the opposite question.
What should we keep? It makes no sense at all. Romney believes that states should be in charge of emergency management in responding to storms and other natural disasters in their jurisdictions As the first responders, states are in the best position to aid affected individuals and communities and to direct resources and assistance to where they are needed most.
This includes help from the federal government and FEMA. As president, I will ensure FEMA has the funding it needs to fulfill its mission, while directing maximum resources to the first responders who work tirelessly to help those in need, because states and localities are in the best position to get aid to the individuals and communities affected by natural disasters.
The Act implemented Wall Street reform with goals that included "improving accountability and transparency in the financial system" and protecting consumers. Romney criticized the Act as being "overwhelming" in length, but he said that one provision, distinguishing between home mortgages and high-risk securities in terms of the capital requirements, "does make sense",  and the Sarbanes-Oxley Actwhich was enacted to prevent accounting scandals such had occurred with the Enron corporation, with plans to eventually replace them with more streamlined regulations.
Employers with eleven or more employees are mandated to offer approved insurance plans for employees.
It differed from the Massachusetts plan in that it involved no individual mandate on a national basis but instead offered tax deductions for those buying insurance on their own, and allowing the states to choose their own health care plans.
He said he opposed efforts to provide non-emergency health coverage to undocumented immigrants and he supported the Hyde Amendment prohibiting government funding for elective abortion.
That campaign begins today. Instead, he focused on its having successfully passed the state legislature with bipartisan support while the Obama plan had received no Republican support at all in Congress.
He also complained that President Obama had not sought out his expertise in crafting the national plan that became the Affordable Care Act.Reality – I think you’re missing the point. “You have to accept that the things you choose to spend money on (investing is one of those things btw) isn’t what other people want to spend money on.”.

I think it’s relevant that mental health is often seen in purely negative terms, ie the ‘typical’ person has no mental health issues and then it’s all downhill from there.
A LEADING INDICATOR FOR THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINATION: Mickey Kaus, &c, and The Note are all a flutter about Bob Shrum's decision to join the John Kerry campaign as an indicator of Kerry's chances to become the Democratic nominee. However, over the next year (and before the actual primaries), there's a better harbinger for who will be .
