Provide proof that the White House was involved or STFU.
There was no "proof" Nixon was involved with Watergate...but his top advisors knew about it and tried to stonewall the facts too.

Very similar to "Obamagate".

Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002
No matter how you attempt to spin it, the Congress authorized military force (war).

They did not make a declaration of war and have not since 1942. Authorization for the use of force is not the same thing, only to modern aficionados of Imperial Executive authority.

Right, so which was the last country[ies] the US Congress issued a declaration of war against? Not passed funding legislation cooked up by the Executive.
Congress has the power to "declare war" in whichever manner it chooses.

This would be an interesting case for SCOTUS.

You got some magic statistic saying those teachers are on the "left"?
Didn't think so. Carol used to be a teacher, she's certainly not a lefty. Besides, I have yet to see a school district protect a predator teacher going so far as unleashing them on a whole new crop of victims.
Yer a fuggin' idiot ya know that?
It's the progressive liberal climate in the public schools that has led to chaos.

Sort of like the radical liberalism in politics.

Republican "whine"? More like Republican "warnings".
It was Republicans who warned government entitlements could lead to exactly where we are now even back then.
Both Republicans and Democrats are financed by the very very rich.

Both enlarge government when in power.

How much was spent by both parties in 2012 and where did the money come from? Doubt if it was the homeless

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.

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.

I find it strange that equal disdain is not payed to teachers molesting students by the Left.
I find it strange that the Left does not pay equal disdain to teachers molesting students.
Why do I say it?
RCC all the time with Progressives while our schools appear to have major problems of their own.
I will repeat. No one is giving teachers that molest any break whatsoever. You are a liar.

You were caught defending molestation on the Catholic Church.

The Demopublican machine stacks the rules in their favor. It will take a conscious electorate to affect change. Most people never heard of Barrack Obama or Mitt Romney 'til their parties chose them to run for King.
That's why you need an outstanding and widely recognized candidate, perhaps not a politician.

Someone in the IRS leaked names and addresses of conservatives who applied for tax exemption and who happened to be against gay marriage to a liberal pro-gay marriage website.

This is the concern with PRISM. Some of us are now considered political enemies of the state.
