Joseph Clark Grew (May 27, 1880 – May 25, 1965) was an American career diplomat and Foreign Service officer. Early in his career, he was the chargé d'affaires at the American Embassy in Vienna when the Austro-Hungarian Empire severed diplomatic relations with the United States on April 9, 1917.[1]

Later, Grew was the Ambassador to Denmark (1920 – 21) and Ambassador to Switzerland (1921 – 24). In 1924, Grew became the Under Secretary of State, and in this position he oversaw the establishment of the U.S. Foreign Service. Grew was the Ambassador to Turkey (1927 – 32) and the Ambassador to Japan beginning in 1932. He was the American ambassador in Tokyo at the time of the Japanese Attack on Pearl Harbor (December 7, 1941) and the opening of war between the United States and the Japanese Empire.

Ambassador Grew was interned for nine months by the Japanese government, but he was released to return to the United States on August, 1942.[2][3]..."

Republican "whine"? More like Republican "warnings".
It was Republicans who warned government entitlements could lead to exactly where we are now even back then.
Hmmmm, seems I heard a lot of warnings in the early 2000's about how disastrous cutting taxes while starting two wars would be ...

It wasn't just ME with those warnings was it? Did you hear any of them too?

First, an meaningless anecdote.
Second, what about the responsibility of the parents?
Third, the only way to prevent this in the future is to exclude homosexuals from the priesthood.
Since the Church already expressly forbids homosexuality I think you must mean that they need to do the same with pedophiles.

Still defending the rapers of children?

Wow.

We only see the priests at mass.
Pretty much the only time we ever saw them either.
(Back in those days we didn't exclude anyone from a questionable eyebrow raise, should one be warrented though...yo knw.. back when most parents still raised their kids themselves and didn't expect everyone else do do their work for them and stuff)

It hasn't worked out very well then has it.
Does it make a pedophile any less a pedophile, if it has NO religious label stuck to it?
Mm...no....I think not.
I have family and friends who are pedophiles.
Some are woman. They bother my children.
It is so hard to call the cops.

(hint: Saddam, bin_laden et al--NOT because of worrying about what AP journalists, FOX news --or any other media outlet--might be news casting on)
The 'why' is a tougher question and I don't believe we'll ever find out.

This would be an interesting case for SCOTUS.
How very sad yet entirely predictable to watch you line up behind the Imperial Presidency. Any fabrication to prop up your liars and any to tear down the other liars. You have no principles.

Greatest entitlement expansion, Medicare Prescription drugs under Republican George Bush.

President Bush has remained silent on politics and did not find time to attend the republican convention.

I am stating what the law is and what the requirements are in the 1976 bill.
You are attaching requirements that the law does not contain.
Getting all emotional about it shows that is YOUR real objective rather than understanding the LAW.
Are you now invoking the War Powers Act?

What does that have to do with anything?

Bush did not treat half the country like they were his political enemies nor did he set the climate that led to thousands of individuals being forced to answer gestapo-type questions by the IRS and the FBI nor did his Attorney General unlawfully confiscate journalists' emails and phone calls who were considered the opposition.
There's a big difference...and you know it.
No, I saw the exact same crap under Bush, you don't see it because your nose is firmly planted in the GOP's posterior.

So, what does that mean?
A bill, a resolution, a voice vote?
Does there need to be a document that states "Declaration of War"?
The WW II declaration was a joint resolution, oddly worded, not actually "declaring war', but stating that a state of war existed. It was then "approved" by FDR, which was completely superfluous.
Yes there does, but that could just be me and other literal constitutionalists. FDR and Truman ramped up the imperial powers of the office and its just been expanding ever since. Congress has ceded its authority to the Executive out of cowardice, for plausible deniability.
