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?

Do not bother addressing comments to "Skycastle." If it is not a Russian bot, then he is a poorly paid troll. How is the weather over there in Albania, "Skycastle?"
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.

The criminal charges were DISMISSED by the court of Colorado Springs !!!!!! You can get the accurate information from the Colorado Springs Police Department instead of making assumptions based upon luck of information.
Life is good
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.
millionaires, alternative reality and fake news has invaded our local elections... I guess it worked for our grabber in chief...
