It's such garbage that any smart high school senior would be embarrassed to have their name on it.
    yeah, she clearly got into those two schools only because she was a black female.

That would make no more sense than to say Congress' power "to provide and maintain a navy" allows for aircraft carriers, because they are ships, but not for the aircraft to go on them. In any case, there already was an Army Air Force. The purpose of the federal law that established the Air Force as a separate branch of the military after WWII was to recognize the growing importance of a force that already had existed for decades, by placing it under its own administration.

    One of the most important reasons for drafting the Constitution, which created the United States, was to improve Americans' ability to defend themselves from foreign threats. It had only been several years since the American forces had very narrowly escaped being defeated--once and for all--by the British. No reasonable person can believe that the Framers of the Constitution did not mean to give Congress the power to create whatever military forces our national security might require, even if they could not know exactly what weapons those forces might some day use.

    You see, I do agree with your point, which is that extra-constitutional powers and functions are a slippery slope, and-- here's where me might or might not differ-- lay the justifiable framework for many things that were then unanticipated, but now exist and seem to flow from the language, spirit, and temporal context of the time(s). Or in another wording- if we can break strict constructionism in one area, can we not in any or all other areas?

    I didn't make any point about extra-constitutional powers or a slippery slope. I just explained why I think the claim that a person has to make an unreasonable interpretation of the Constitution to justify Congress' authority to create the U.S. Air Force doesn't hold water. I've seen all sorts of attempts to twist this or that part of the Constitution into something unrecognizable to justify some statist vision of a social utopia. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court itself has sometimes done that. Roe is only one example.

    interpreting the constitution is inherenly not strict construction and by definition anything expanded therefrom is extraconstitutional power.

    I don't agree with her view of the law and distorting the Constitution, but I wish her the best of health.

    By your definition, maybe. Not by mine.

    Well if she is sick, she ain't the only one.
    The problem is that people like her are in a position of authority. She twists things to give government greater authority and in the process robs the people of authority over their lives. Some of us hold contempt for dishonest people that exist solely to create greater and greater government authority.
