Answer number 2 (now that i am home again!....

OK smartypants, if you think it is an "error," what is the authority on English grammar? Is there a book or something that lists the rules?

maybe these will do the trick.. they are good enough for universities.
or these should suffice
you SEEM to think that "seen" is a perfectly fine and esoteric substitute for "seem"... it's not.
You also seem to be labouring under the misapprehension that you are right under all circumstances even when blatantly wrong.
I also find your utter pretentiousness absolutely hilarious! 100% entertainments from how hard you bite. It's just magical!...
Please tell us all how magical and fabulous you are again!...

Surely you mean "a" grammar wagon, as excepting situations of internal conflict grammar is merely a matter of style in English.

Nope, it's one big , singular fucking wagon and you ain't on it!
there's right way and a wrong way and you got it very fucking wrong.

internal conflict


psychological struggle within the mind of a literary or dramatic character, the resolution of which creates the plot's suspense:
Hamlet's inaction is caused by internal conflict.
mental struggle arising from opposing demands or impulses.

So tell me Captain Bollocks... in which manner were you using literary device of "internal conflict" correctly in your mangled sentence eh????
Ooh.... I see, you didn't! dig that hole son, dig that hole!

It is still a shame that Nixon's resignation over shadowed his accomplishments while in office. He got the US military out of Vietnam. He visited China to personally open a diplomatic channel between China and the US. That action on his part kicked off the US's most successful regime operation in history. It brought China into the international trade and financial markets which changed them from a poor and inward looking Communist regime into one of the most capitalistic countries on the planet. China has not been a communist country for a long time no matter what they call their country. Nixon also created the EPA which has been one of the most successful government agencies since it was created.

yeah and that war on drugs he started.. that wasn't a total fiscal black hole at all was it? not a waste of time, energy, money and lives? Nixon was a twat

Actually Nixed did not get ousted for having the re-election team break into DNC Headquarters and plant bugs.

Nixon got ousted for covering up the issue after he learned of it. Nixon did not direct it to happen. Nixon covered it up after the fact.

erm.. there's quite a bit more to it than that and it was very clear he had involvement from inception to execution and over up.. hoisted by his own petard ,his own recording were used as evidence and proved knowledge all the way from the start to the end.
