Randam Ron Paulism

It is great comedy to hear the secular, pro-gay left, so hostile to states’ rights in virtually every instance, suddenly discover the tyranny of centralized government. The newly minted protectors of local rule find themselves demanding: “Why should Washington dictate marriage standards for Massachusetts and California? Let the people of those states decide for themselves.” This is precisely the argument conservatives and libertarians have been making for decades! Why should Washington dictate education, abortion, environment, and labor rules to the states? The American people hold widely diverse views on virtually all political matters, and the Founders wanted the various state governments to most accurately reflect those views. This is the significance of the 10th Amendment, which the left in particular has abused for decades.”

Don Peters Sexual Abuse: Olympic Gymnastics Coach Resigns Amidst Allegations

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. — A former Olympic gymnastics coach facing allegations of sexual abuse resigned Tuesday from his coaching and director positions at a prominent Orange County club.

The resignation comes after the newspaper’s investigation last month alleging sexual and physical abuse of underage gymnasts. More than a dozen former gymnasts told the newspaper stories of abuse.

In a Sept. 25 Register story, Doe Yamashiro, a former U.S. national team and SCATS member, said Peters began fondling her in 1986, when she was 16, and had sexual intercourse with her when she was 17.

Peters declined to comment to the Register.

A Nov. 11 hearing has been scheduled in Indianapolis by gymnastics’ national governing body to decide whether Peters should be banned from the sport.

Peters led the U.S. women’s team to a record eight medals in the 1984 Olympics.

The alleged abuse took place in the 1980s and can’t be prosecuted under California law because the statute of limitation has expired.

Two other U.S. gymnastics coaches, Doug Boger and Michael Zapp, have either been dismissed or terminated from coaching roles after allegations of sexual and physical abuse surfaced in newspaper.
