The world can lead others to the democracy and constitutionality troughs, but it cannot force them to see the rationality of it, and aquite the methods of continued applications of.

Beyond basic need humane type foreign aid--especially in revolting countries, and even more especially those with great dislikes of western cultures-nothing else should be expected of us.

Then you are WRONG.
The IG report found the IRS targeting groups for having 'Tea Party' in their name was illegal.
Makes no difference what your opinion is as this is not decided by a raise of hands.
The IG report did not call any targeting illegal.

So now we know the depth and reach of the NSA program.
Hagel routinely voted against the wishes of the voters of the state that hired him.
Hagel was my senator and a complete ass.
so all voters in Nebraska think the same way, have exactly the same opinion?

What over-hyped accusations?? What planet are you on? Who in their right mind would deny the widespread abuse of children by Catholic priests.

There is even evidence that Cardinal Ratzinger' instituted the policy to relocating pedophile priests to another parish when caught, without warning the new parish in order to protect the priest, not the children. Let's not even go into the fact that the policy was clearly against the law and constituted aiding and abetting in a felony.

The fact that the Vatican was orchestrating the policy is borne out by the fact that child abuse scandals were exposed in Italy, Ireland, Germany and Australia.

Former President George W. Bush on Thursday defended some of the cellphone data-gathering tactics used by the National Security Agency that have caused a public uproar in recent weeks, saying America’s “still at risk” and it’s about “connecting the dots” in the war on terror.
“There’s kind of a view that maybe they’ve gone away – they haven’t,” Bush said, referring to terrorists.“And now, techniques used to prevent attacks have been disclosed. I don’t know if you remember after 9/11, Congress had hearings, right? And you know what the hearings were about? We didn’t connect the dots. Well, we didn’t have the tools there to connect the dots.”
“One of the killers makes a phone call from San Diego to somewhere, how come you didn’t know? We didn’t have the tools. We’ve got the tools. Now the people in Congress are saying,‘Why are you connecting the dots?’ It’s a tough assignment for the president. It is.”

The words "1,2,3, we declare war" is not neccessary
Approval for monies to be utilized for combat purposes in a foreign country meets the law and is viewed as Declaration of War by historians.
Really?

wow.

I guess you're taking 'let's screw the Constitution" to a whole new level now.

When was the last time Congress declared war?
Difficult to answer, because the Constitution does not specify a format for declaring war. What is clear is that only Congress has that authority.

Great, but how about someone with national stature who would have a chance.

Mackey does deserve a look He does not identify as a skeptic of scientific opinion on climate change; rather, he believes that "climate change is perfectly natural and not necessarily bad."

Mackey is also anti-union and anti-Obamacare.

Tell Galt that it took two minutes to figure out the I.R.S. investigation and less time to fix it,so why bother the U S tax payer with unnecessary costs of go-nowhere hearings--republicans love spending the tax payers money on stupid sh*t!.:-D

Highly publicized, many years after the fact, but not necessarily widespread.
