Re: “AFA football coach uses tweets to evangelize

It's hard to know how to respond to this latest affront the the Constitution, the 3rd in 48 hours, from the evidently 'converted' institution formerly known as the United States Air Force Academy, but now more properly the 'Holy Blood of the Lamb School of Sacred Airborne Imperialist Aggression' [a fully taxpayer funded parochial university of Christian fundamentalist dogma and applied military skills]. This most recent affront; evangelizing via a government-sponsored Twitter account by someone who cannot be anything less than intimately aware of the long history of Constitutional violations that have cropped up repeatedly, like a bad case of hemorrhoids, from within the very department in which he works and who occupies a position in the hierarchy in which he should not only be aware of AF directive 1-1 but who should be responsible to insuring it is carried out, cannot be anything less that a supervisor-approved, intentional act of sedition against the Constitution the former AFA is specifically empowered to defend and protect (if I understand correctly, as a civilian, he's not been required to swear such an oath). In his arrogant contempt for the regulations, he doesn't even bother to use a private, non-governmental Twitter account. That would spoil the intent, don't you see?

That as an employee of a government entity, utilizing a government-funded means of communication for proselytizing his personal religious beliefs conflates them to be official government policy in violation of the Constitution's 'Establishment Clause' is unarguable.

Those who colonized this country were fleeing state-mandated religious beliefs in order to freely practice what they believed (let's disregard the genocide & religious dictatorship they themselves practiced upon arrival). When our founders decided to write a constitution laying out the core beliefs of the new nation, they specifically understood that a monolithic state religion was anathema to democracy and led only to religious wars (of which Europe provided aplenty) and therefore specifically forbade it in the document we all now revere. But, those lessons, under the pressure of a few dogmatic and unrelenting fanatics, are destroying the secular democracy endowed to us by the founders and the framework for a new Christofascist theocracy is being laid.

Where's the outrage?

Stop it. Just don't publish such an absurd story and call it news. It's insane to think there was proselytizing going on here by leaving one religious publication in a waiting area that can be populated by anyone, further, if you don't like the message, then don't read it. Easy peasy. Hide it under the other magazines if you so desire, but don't cry wolf on something so ridiculous.

Re: “UPATE: Did dinosaurs and humans co-exist? Flier at USAFA says yes.

Never heard of the discovery news before (and it doesn't sound like anything I would read) however if you truly believe that a magazine left in a waiting room indicates endorsement than you are an idiot. If you are worried that an academy cadet would be brainwashed because he sat next to a religious publication, then we should be concerned about the quality of recruits. Separation of church and state does not require that government facilities and employees be completely devoid of religion or any spec of personal religious material then you have no idea about the Constitution. I shouldn't have wasted my time reading this post, it is as devoid of fact and truth as the magazine they are crying about.

Wow, a flier left behind at the clinic??? Conspiracies abound. The constant drumming up of controversy by this publication and Weinstein are beyond the pale. Guess the Indy is the ready vehicle for fake news. Sad

Re: “UPATE: Did dinosaurs and humans co-exist? Flier at USAFA says yes.

While it may be thought unreasonable to criticize the clinic staff for the single instance of the anti-science 'Discovery Institute's' fundamentalist Christian agitprop being present (perhaps some 'outside agitator' had just put it there) the functional part of the victim's complaint is "... previously on two appointments I had ignored Christian proselytizing materials found there...". In other words, this is an habitual occurrence; hence the clinic staff and, more importantly, their supervisors should have been aware of this repetitive 'attack' on the government clinic's Constitutional requirement to not 'establish' a preferred religion and should have taken the necessary steps (e.g.; posting a sign like 'Please leave no unauthorized material' or more aggressive measures) to insure that its patrons are not confronted with religious proselytizing in a circumstance suggesting it is official U.S. government dogma... one can only imagine the uproar had the document be a Qu'ran! Sadly, however, such tacit endorsement of a 'state religion', dominionist Christianity, has become the rule rather than the exception at AFA. Happily, Mikey & MRFF are johnny-on-the-spot to hold the proper feet to the fire.

Re: “UPDATE: AFA cadet wears uniform for Christian testimonial

As Christian supremacy becomes more & more embedded in the highest levels of our once-secular government, this cadet's actions, whether an informed & intentional act of sedition against the Constitution he's sworn to protect & defend, or merely the act of an ignorant naif, once more places the AFA, an hotbed of recurrent domionist Christian influenced anti-constitutional acts, at the center of the 'no establishment' clause. By virtue of making his religious statement in uniform, he lends the weight & power of the U.S. government to his religious ideology; an act the founders knew led to unending religious conflicts and their attendant horrors and consequently forbade in the founding document. In the past, the AFA hierarchy has seen fit to empower regime-friendly 'kangaroo courts' to assess compliance with Constitutional obligations (e.g.; the football team's prayer circles issue absolution) producing the expected result of 'no problem'. One has little hope that this latest transgression will result in a 'teachable moment' any more than those prior have done.

Re: “Unlicensed vehicles are the norm on streets near The Broadmoor, tickets aren't

Something to ponder:
As the article states, the Broadmoor made an attempt on Cheyenne Mountain Blvd but backed off under intense public pressure. We also know that the Broadmoor backed off an attempt to put riding stables on the east side of 21st Street across from Bear Creek Park .... also under intense public pressure. We've been told that the public reaction to the Broadmoor Land Swap was more vigorous and pronounced than, "anything in recent memory". And yet the Broadmoor has not backed off.
Why? Can anyone offer simple input as to .... "Therein lies the difference"?

Re: “Manitou paving stopped

Nobody ever accused CDOT of competence.

Yet you don't see the HD17 rep doing legislation to decommission Business Route 24 and return it to the cities and county, either.

Get that done first, then the cities can continue to fix it right.

Re: “The Trump presidency, deplorables, the media, and more

Dan Marvin: Well, what did you expect from a con man RINO who is actually a Democrat? Ron Paul? (BTW, you would have gotten the same old S*** from Hillary, too!)

Robert B. Hoff: Or maybe he won't. Time will tell. But Hillary will try again in 2020 if she lives that long.

Ryan Carrigan: Thank you for your service, but you miss part of it. Clinton lost because she didn't campaign worth a crap on anything except that she wasn't Donald Trump.

Ken Burrows: Complain about Trump all you want, but with Hillary and her PC insanity, would it have been any better or different save the flip on who's acting out? Unlikely.

Ron Lowe: When you get a clue about how and why the Electoral College works, and that the Presidential election is not one national election but 51 state elections (and DC), then get back to us. We are not a democracy, so quit whining as if we were.

Gina Douglas: Have a binky for your whining. Your career criminal Hillary lost because she was a lousy candidate who campaigned poorly. Place your whining blame where it belongs: on her.

Re: “Letters to the Future

January 2027: The world finally realizes that the entire AGW argument was nothing more than an elaborate hoax put forth by scheming liberals to do nothing more than achieve their ultimate goal of planetary enslavement under the liberal socialist political mantra, plunging the entire world into poverty and repression in the name of the liberal religious cult of scientism known as AGW, all to satisfy some elaborate and completely false narrative that somehow they know what's best, when in fact, they don't know Jack Schitt.
