Re: “Reader: This is Trump's agenda

Matthew, since you asked, the Constitution leaves it up to the states to develop environmental regulations. Read the 10th Amendment if you're confused here. Seriously, read it and try to understand it, then we can discuss it.

You want to know how the EPA, DOE, wildlife rule, Obamacare, and federal money for Planned Parenthood are all unconstitutional? The answer is simple:
Those powers were never given to the federal government by the U.S. Constitution. That's how the Constitution was written, so that only limited, specified, delegated powers were given to the feds. They're listed in Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution. All other powers indeed most powers were left to the states and the people. When the people decide that the federal government needs more power, they're free to pass Constitutional Amendments which give it more power. This basic idea of limited federal power was the cornerstone of the Constitution. The Founders built it around that idea, so as to prevent federal tyranny. They left it up to the states and the people to decide if the feds needed a new power, and required the feds to get their permission first, so that the feds couldn't just take control of areas which were not under their legal control. This was meant to protect our rights from federal abuse. But power over the environment, wildlife, education, and health was never given to the feds, not in the original Constitution and not in the amendments. So the feds have no legal power over these issues, and when they make laws here it's an "usurpation of power" and is totally unconstitutional. Do you understand this? If not, consider the 18th Amendment (Prohibition). Why was it passed?

Re: “Transitioning early is beneficial for transgender children

I wish transitioning had been available when I was a child in the '60s.

I have been given the look many times in my life starting at 3 years old when I had shoulder length wavy auburn hair. Rude people would come up to me and ask, What are you a boy or a girl? I was confused by this question since I knew the my mom and sister were girls and I was like them, but I felt more like I was one of my brothers. As an adult, I have been given the look when someone questioning my gender sees me in the womens bathroom. I have been given angry sneers. I was shunned by my Christian ministry after 10 years of celibacy and service because I was a sexual suspect, a person that is under suspicion of being deviant. I was not, I was a child that was misunderstood and after being sexually assaulted numerous times as a defenseless child, I decided I didnt want anything to do with sex or relationships.

But I find it very interesting that others feel that they can judge me not by my actions, but their religious beliefs. Maybe they need to read their Bibles again on how Christ treated the others, and that God said the Greatest Commandment is to love God with all of you heart, soul, mind and strength and your neighbor as yourself. Still waiting for conservatives to get this point when they say its their right to disregard my rights as an American citizen. Looking forward to this court case going to the Supreme Court and see how the Highest Judges of our Nation rule on this issue.

PS- And yes, I did have a bathroom incident in Arizona where they dont wants trans people in the women's bathrooms. I walked in and got a very startled look and a woman started to say I was in the wrong bathroom. So since I was in a hurry I just said to her in a calm tone, Its okay, Im female, and continued to go into a stall. I get this whenever I travel. If it was at a restaurant and if she had gotten the manager involved, then I would have called 911 and got it all on tape for the publicity on harassment. Such is my life.

Re: “A look at Colorado Springs City Council candidates where they live

Wow... this is very irresponsible journalism. If you could call it that. And an affront to privacy. While I get this is public information, the premise of "let's look at the millionaires who are running for council" and then to draw the conclusion "not many," but still put pictures of their homes up for all to see. Shameful.

No wonder it is difficult to convince good people to run for elected offices these days. Way to contribute to the filth Indy/Pam.

Re: “Reader: This is Trump's agenda

Skycastle,

Without the EPA, who will develop environmental regulations? Do you seriously want your rivers being polluted without a government agency to protect them? How exactly are these agencies "unconstitutional"? You do realize per the Hyde Amendment that our Federal tax dollars CANNOT BE USED BY PLANNED PARENTHOOD TO PERFORM ABORTIONS, with few exceptions.

Re: “Abuse allegations continue at youth facility

Devereux Cleo Wallace is a dangerous and abusive place for children. I trusted them with my son and he was thoroughly traumatized by both enduring emotional and physical violence at the hands of staff, and by witnessing the constant violence perpetrated by staff on other kids. Have you talked to admissions and checked out the videos and website? Do not believe for a minute that they will swim, ride horses, pet the therapy dog, or get therapeutic care. They create unnecessary distress for fragile, mentally ill kids, then punish them for reacting. Restraints and locking children in the "quiet room" were constant. This is an expensive, private, abusive jail for kids. I can't for the life of me understand how they haven't been shut down. Devereux Cleo Wallace is a house of horrors.

Re: “Pinned Down

My bipolar child was at Devereux Cleo Wallace and suffered greatly from staff who would deliberately antagonize the children, cause them to be upset, then restrain them and lock them in a small room. Staff threatened to retaliate against my son if he kept complaining. I finally pulled him out before he became the next statistic. My report to CPS was not even the only one - someone else had reported abuse to him a week before I did. Horrifying. Stay away from this place. I pray every day for the poor souls still locked in there, because staff and police don't believe them.

Re: “Reader: This is Trump's agenda

Awesome! I LOVE Trump's agenda. We need to terminate the EPA, DOE, wildlife rule, and Obamacare for the simple reason that they are ALL unconstitutional! None of those powers are given to the federal government by the U.S. Constitution, therefore they are usurpations of power - something forbidden by the Constitution. I say get rid of all illegal federal laws and agencies.

And defunding that abomination called Planned Parenthood (founded by the vile racist and genocidal maniac Margaret Sanger) would be wonderful. Aside from such funding being unconstitutional, govt. should NEVER steal taxpayer money to kill unborn children. That's so wrong it's vomitous.

Now unions, they can be a horror. When I worked for a utility company, I was FORCED to become a dues paying member of the the IBEW, and that rotten group used my dues money to support sickening Leftist candidates, whom I couldn't stand. Forcing people to pay money to groups which support horrible political candidates is just evil.
