### No reason why your attorney shouldn't be there at the examination.


Is my insistence I know nothing of substance to the questions being asked a sign of dishonesty or the simple truth?

#### Unwillingness to prove your lack of knowledge by a simple and safe test is surely a sign of a guilty conscience.

Leaving aside for a minute that it is a fundamental act of force against a human being in their most sacrosanct aspect of their very mind.

And who determines what is "reasonable time" or insures that the information has actually been made public without doctoring?

Then what is this "life" or its value that is left if it can be destroyed and pryed open at any suspicion by any authority? What is there left to protect if this is legitimate? Can you protect by destroying and denying the value of that which you claim to protect?
