The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) was created by the Dodd-Frank Act as an independent agency within the Federal Reserve System, with the purpose of regulating consumer financial products. The core mission of the CFPB, protecting consumers from bad actors, is important, but we should all be concerned about the unconstitutional structure of the bureau.
Thank you, Lou Hahn, for the excellent letter. I firmly believe that anyone that believes selling dope to bolster our economy should not be voted into office.
As expected, President Donald Trump has been shaking things up since he took the reins in January, but approval of his presidency is slipping to new lows, even among Republicans.
Easter is about two weeks away, and I found a great picture book to read to children or have them read it to you. “The Littlest Bunny in Colorado” is intended for ages 4 and up. The story is told in rhyme, and the illustrations are beautiful. Readers even get to take part in an Easter egg hunt.
Yes, it failed; actually it wasn’t even voted on so technically, nothing really happened. When the next healthcare bill comes up for vote I’m going to go out on a limb and predict that it will pass. Democracy is a messy thing and sometimes even the best of intentions are thwarted by over exuberance. I’m not a parliamentarian but constant news cycles don’t give too much credence to the give and take of politics and the deals that must be made to get legislation passed that suits the interests of a host of representatives from 50 different states.
Many Americans have already forgotten about the Clean Power Plan (CPP), the Obama administration’s signature effort to reduce carbon emissions from the nation’s power plants — but not the nation’s coal communities. They’ve lived with this regulation as an ever-present threat even after its implementation was stayed by a federal court.
Your stated reason against support of John Ponikvar for mayor is one of the most absurd things I have ever read. It is right up there with voting for a president based on race or gender.
Tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme… You’ve known the story and its title tune for years, but that doesn’t make the new “Beauty and the Beast” any less magical.
Good health care is a top priority for most Americans because regardless of age, race, social class or gender, we all face the fact that our health could be endangered in the blink of an eye.
The defeat was, of course, humiliating — for Donald Trump, for Paul Ryan, for every Republican who had ever promised to repeal Obamacare, meaning every Republican not named Lincoln.
I am not ashamed for anything I do. I am sad people in this town would shame me to hell even if I have never met them. I would be ashamed of myself for judging those who choose whichever pleasure in life.
For more than 50 percent of families living in Steamboat Springs, an extra set of helping hands is found just beyond the blue doors of the Boys & Girls Club, located on Eighth Street between Pine and Aspen streets.
Let me tell you how I got my name as Trojan, ”the little horse that snuck into Sand Wash.” You see, a couple years ago a beautiful grey stallion went missing from Sand Wash. He was on a mission to find himself a mare of his own and maybe the local gals just weren’t interested in him. As the summer wore on not much was thought of the missing grey, after all, there’s lots of grey stallions in Sand Wash. Well, finally one day the missing grey, River, was seen — pretty hefty news coming out of the basin as River had come from afar bringing in a whole new fleet of horses with him.
Calving season has begun at Pipi’s Pasture. I think that calving season is a worrisome time with the uncertainty of weather and the possible complications of calving. But it’s not without its rewards, either. It surely is enjoyable to watch the two new little heifer calves as they run around the pasture and then suddenly plop down for their naps.
This week I tried an experiment, an adaptation of a recipe. The idea came when I read through an August 2016 issue of a little magazine sent through the mail, along with coupons, by King Soopers.
