.. you have got to be kidding .

.. making a secret deal is bad enough . Doing it with the anti – religious radicals at the Freedom from Religion Foundation is even worse …

Judicial doctrine gives the government a certain amount of leeway to implement a law . However , they are only given so much leeway …

.. this leeway [“Chevron Deference”] does require the Government to follow the law . Sometimes , the Government can be a little creative in its interpretation . However , it cannot go too far . If the Government does not follow the plain letter , text , and intent of the law , then un – uh …
