Re: “The new Lutheranism

Lutherans that ordain women are not new. The predecessor ELCA Lutheran denominations included women ordained in 1970. The Missouri Synod is NOT one of three predecessor church bodies to the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, of which Bolz-Weber is a part. D Whitenack

Re: “The American Dream and Colorado education

Everybody has a dream, and everybody want his dream come true. In most cases you have to work hard and it is subject to education, too. You have to study hard, become intelligent and acquire some skills that should help you in reaching your goals. Writing an essay is very important in receiving quality education. The essay helps students to develop critical thinking and research skills, as well as the ability to develop and logically defend a position. contains the fullest information about essay writing, its goals, common mistakes as well as tips how to develop critical thinking and start writing good papers.

I find my new home city, Seattle, very prosperous and the citizens work for common welfare, not to separate themselves to flaunt their freedom.

Re: “Taking the 'fed' out of 'freedom'

Sorry, Dave. I thought your comment implied it was explicit. Good elaboration.

Re: “Taking the 'fed' out of 'freedom'

"The Constitution does not explicitly give the Supreme Court the power of judicial review."

Did I say explicitly? No, I said "via". However, since you went there, "The judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution, the Laws of the United States, and Treaties made, or which shall be made, under their Authority;" Now, while it does not explicitly say "judicial review", it pretty well describes exactly that.

And please note that Marbury was not the first case of judicial review. Marbury was the first case where judicial review struck down a law.

Re: “Taking the 'fed' out of 'freedom'

Dave H, you are mistaken. The Constitution does not explicitly give the Supreme Court the power of judicial review. Chief Justice John Marshall, in the case of Marbury v. Madison, ruled a provision of the Judiciary Act of 1789 unconstitutional, reinforcing the doctrine of judicial review, which had only been a theoretical power before.

According to Wikipedia, "Historians mostly agree that the framers of the Constitution did plan for the Supreme Court to have some sort of judicial review; what Marshall did was make operational their goals."

The irony of the situation is that the provision the court struck down would have expanded the power of the Supreme Court.

Re: “Taking the 'fed' out of 'freedom'

"Who gets to decide what the U.S. Constitution really says?

A legal scholar would tell you that's the job of the U.S. Supreme Court. "

When it comes to legal precedent, the US Supreme Court is generally the correct answer -- ironically a power given to them via the U.S. Constitution, the very document they are supposed to interpret and apply.

However, it is really the people of the United States who are the final arbiters of what the Constitution actually says.

Re: “'How much more risk ...?'

Does anyone know if this elected official can be impeached?--or maybe just charged with a crime and dragged into court?

Re: “'How much more risk ...?'

CSindyReader, The county is a subdivision of the state, and the elected officials are statutory, or perhaps even constitutional, which means the commissioners cannot make this change on their own. I don't know if a county can opt out of having their local elected officials, such as county treasurer, assessor and sheriff, appointed and not elected. Maybe a reader has a handle on what procedure would be necessary for this to happen.

Re: “'How much more risk ...?'

Sheriffs' departments are notoriously corrupt regardless of whether the person in charge is elected or appointed. The bigger question is why the Republican party chose to continue to back Maketa in light of Pam's story several years ago. The time for partisanship and labeling one or another news organization "conservative" or "liberal," and thus more worthy of being listened to, needs to end for the sake of this city and county.

Re: “'How much more risk ...?'

Should someone with no integrity be in charge of budget, personnel, or criminal investigative issues?

Instead of a recall petition, the county should be considering whether it makes sense in today's world to have an elected official in charge of the Sheriff's department and propose a ballot issue to end the election of a county Sheriff.

What is needed now is a thorough housecleaning, yet the commissioners hands are tied due to an antiquated concept - i.e., electing a sheriff.

Re: “Lawyer and (animal) lover

The comments made about Miss Piccone by ALC seem very malicious to me and extremely inacurate considering I contacted ALC a few months ago in desperate need of help with a legal mater, ALC would not even give me the time of day after hearing that I could not affford legal help. They talked in there comment about helping so many clients regardless of there abilities to pay,well from my prospective this seems quite confusing considering there brief conversation with me, but then I had the great fortune of meeting Miss Piccone, who I might add is my attorney in my situation. Miss Piccone not only gave me her undivided attention when I contacted her but also out of the kindness of her heart and with great compassion accepted my case saying "Do not worry about the money". Miss piccone does not talk about helping people she just does it.....

Re: “Lawyer and (animal) lover

Representing a person guilty of abandoning his dog on a mountain sullies your reputation than anything anyone could have said on or off the record.
Ms. Piccone has done remarkable work for all animals, not for the humans that abuse them.
