I don't care who thinks they know this Ric, but I am telling the truth about the abuse. I even contacted the Wounded Warriors, Operation TBI Freedom, and the VA Caregiver system. This is junior high nonsense. I do NOT care who you are, he physically touched me, OUT OF ANGER. Have you EVER thought about what the veterans see, when Ric MAKES them walk through the entire place. Down hallways with doors open to what look like COFFINS. THAT is NOT conducive to healing. I saw a back door, and asked if the veterans could come through the back, because this is what they would see; my husband did. He said no way, did not even have any courtesy FROM THE BEGINNIG, physically "chest bumped" me. What is it with that Douch move? Then we left. I have lied about nothing, and if this RIC want to play junior high, instead of business man, fine. I have yet to do many LEGAL thing on my part, to ensure no veterans get hurt. It is just a matter of time. They are showing WAR movies to veterans who just got back from war. One veteran is going to get triggered, because you ALL refuse to get training, and at the very least, you will have a ruined tube. That vet gets out, someone is going to get hurt. That is what I am trying to make you civilians, who have obviously never served a day in your life, GIVE the best treatment, but you are all too good to listen to a stupid woman. I was trying to HELP THESE PEOPLE. All your employees, when I would tell them war movies NOT a good idea, their EXACT words(from all of them), were, "Well the road to hell is paved with good intentions." Good intentions IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH. These civilian places NEED training. They abused my husband so badly, he is regressing, now does ANY ONE care about a war hero that was abused, then abandoned. He is getting worse, and you caused it, and are UNWILLING to make it right. We will be looking in to the Ft.Carson HBOT. It is wonderful therapy, but the patient cannot be being abused or neglected; as we have seen. My husband said the trauma he endured in Louiseville, made the treatments useless. He is now worse. This man has been awared TWO Purple Hearts, a Bronze Star, and MANY other commendations. How is ANY of this alright with you "healthcare providers"? Who CARE if you like the patient, gives one NO excuse to abuse all THREE veterans. I am still willing to die for my country, how about you, RIC? Did you ever serve a day in the military? Either way, I am just asking that you all get training. If veterans means as much to you so you SAY they do; what the hell is the problem about getting some training? Is your time too valuable? Ours was not, as we keep ensuring YOUR freedom. Every word I have written is the truth. RIC probably even has himself going after me on camera! You people either want to HELP veterans, or just look good. If it is the former, why the issue with getting training? Do you not have to keep up on the latest technologies in artificial tanning? Why don't veterans get your same time and attention? All I did was tell the truth, and, like I have been begging for months, JUST GET SOME TRAINING, it is not that difficult. Heck, I will even set it up for you, if you do not know where to go for assistance. This is not about this Ric, or anyone but the VETERANS. We are the reason you are free. The LEAST you could do is take a lousy training course, not too much to ask, but one must be willing and their motives must be altruistic. I will help, you ALL need training; if nothing else, you may learn something interesting. Veterans have trust issues to begin with, and if you are not willing to learn about us, why should any of us trust you WITH OUR BRAINS? You have already done more harm than good to my husband, and I hope that Ft. Carson can help him, he is damaged so thoroughly now, thank you. Once again, I did nothing but tell the truth, if one cannot handle it, then one should CHANGE.
Just saw the comment posted on 8/7 by Julie Radcliffe about me and our company, Pikes Peak Hyperbaric. All I can say is, wow. I understand now why Rocky Mountain Hyperbaric is having their lawyer get in touch with you to have a little chat. I know Ryan and Eddie and they are wonderful, caring people, trying to help. I know the lengths they went to help your husband, and this is the way you thank them? They, like Pikes Peak Hyperbaric, DO NOT CHARGE for our services in treating injured soldiers like your husband. Its our way of giving something back to these soldiers who have given so much in service of their country. The rest of your comments are just plain sad and lies.
We've been treating injured soldiers for nearly four years now and I've never had a problem, until you walked in the door and started slamming my business before I could even get out of my chair. I didn't throw anybody out but I did say "well, I guess our meeting is over then" when you demanded a private entrance to our clinic because you didn't want to walk down the hallway from our salon business, the business that donates 2,000 square feet of space to Pikes Peak Hyperbaric so we can take money that would normally go to rent and use it to help subsidize our SOS (Save Our Soldiers) program. That salon by the way is the largest facility of its kind in Colorado, has been in business in the same location for 17 years and has won numerous national awards as one of the Top 250 salons in the nation as well as being the only two time winner of 'National Salon of the Year.'
I taught fitness for many years, I don't know where you get the 'failed bodybuilder, porno king' thing. Insults aside, what really bothers me though is your claim that I 'chest bumped' you in anger. Are you serious? That's ridiculous and an absolute lie. I never touched you. I did ask you to leave after you went into your rant less then 30 seconds after you walked into my clinic, before I had a chance to say a word to you or your husband, who seemed like a nice guy by the way. I wish you both the best.

Wonder why our state representatives have not done more to get state funding for some of this mitigation? It would seem that all those people who showed up for the post-disaster photo op would step up to the plate - including the President and our Governor.
Roach coaches, ewwwww. Another thing that New York can have back, along with Micheal Bloomberg and his gun grabbing facists.
How did this article end up on page two of google while researching Andrew Wommack? Somebody there has a very good SEO person because this is a terrible article. Before I go into my diatribe, I will tell you a little about myself. I live in Fort Wayne, In. A happily married, mother of three. My husband is a business owner and I help him, if that counts for a job. Middle-aged, middle class. I have listened to many of Andrew's teachings. They are not filled with hate, intolerance or bigotry. All of the quotes taken from his teachings are completely out of context and I highly encourage critics to listen for themselves (the teachings are free). I have seen a shift societies attitudes toward Christians. Just because we think things are not spiritually sound does not mean we are intolerant. Plenty of people think smoking is wrong and smokers are sent away from the public to smoke. Does that mean non-smokers are intolerant? I can understand concerns for traffic, I can understand questioning if lawmakers will be swayed by dollars, but where is all the animosity coming from?
These trucks need to be at Freedom Financial Expo Center when they have big weekend shows there; the lone concession stand inside that place is a joke.
This is primo eating...you can pull around back if you are driving, and for the same price as unhealthy drive thru food, get a quick and stunningly delicious and wholesome meal.
In all my years downtown, this is the best value and the best food I have eaten, hands down.
The spirit is fun and happy...every one wins, the vendors, the filled and satisfied customers...I am telling you, this food is as good as it gets at any price anywhere.
Hey Bob K, did you know that the subsidies given to oil and gas are specifically for the exploration of alternate forms of fuel. Whether or not subsidies are actually used for such purposes is unknown. The federal government certainly wouldn't follow up on money spent to see if it was spent wisely. After all, it is not their money.
Bob Kinsey, Regardless of what you say about the article, your head is in the clouds. What you and this article (which has plenty of flaws, especially that bit about how many miles of solar it would take to run the country, the truth is no amount of solar can run the country, it won't power any grid in the world which is why scraggly bearded hipsters like this guy have to glom on to an actual utility, but I digress) where was I? Oh yeah you, and this article are trying to imply that this energy source, that requires no fuel whatsoever, is being spurned because utilities just enjoy buying trainloads of coal. That is the most ignorant thing I have ever heard. If this photo-voltaic array actually could deliver power, it would be used. Business alone would by it to get factories off the grid and increase profits by not having to pay for an electrical bill. But it doesn't work and is probably decades away from being ready for prime time.
The posted article from The Australian is, according to FAIR, loaded with misinformation and lies. Just the phrase, "generous subsidies" is intentionally misleading. The Oil and Gas industry receives far greater subsidies than renewable ever have and continue to receive despite their record profits and environmental mayhem. Germany achieved 50% of total usage via solar one day this July. They have been acting responsibly with regard to their commitments to the Kyoto Treaty. Their plan is to be 100% renewable by 2050. --and their economy seems to be one of the strongest in the EU and perhaps the world. It is long past time for the rest of the world's citizens to act as responsibly before we lose a planet capable of sustaining prosperous and happy biological life.
Siggie. I tend to read the words as they are written. Apologies.
I agree with you (I think) that this is a discussion about balance.
All of the hyperventilating about "government overreach" in the gun debate doesn't really match reality. There are people out there, quite a few of them in fact, who want these gun laws and just because some people consider the laws an apostasy doesn't necessarily make them so.
Some people think that it violates their rights that they can't shout obscenities at their neighbors, too.
Prod, I believe you took my comment too literally. You said it in your response. The constitution places restrictions on government so that government cannot (or should I say 'should not') place onerous restrictions on the citizens. The question before us is exactly that. Is the government attempting to over-reach in assuming power and restricting the rights of the citizens. Guns are just one example. Our rights, which have been eroding for years as the federal government gets bigger and more powerful, are currently being trampled at an alarming pace.
Come on, Siggie. You're smarter than that. The Constitution places limitations upon the government, not the people. It doesn't nullify the will of the people.
People want restrictions on free speech, so we have them. And so far, we've done a decent job balancing that right with the responsibilities that go with it.
To say that the Constitution places regulations on gun ownership is dead wrong -- to prevents the government from violating this inherent right.
And, by the way, none of these gun bills violate our rights. We can still own guns, lots of them, in all their fun shapes and sizes and colors.
What these bills do is try to balance that right with the need for public safety.
No one in their right mind should object to the current concealed carry rules and back grounds checks for gun purchases...and registering guns, even ballistic tests on file simply protects us all, including the gun owner who is able to prove he sold a gun, is properly trained to handle a gun, and encouraged to be careful about shooting anyone with it.
Morse went to far...and is sort of nutty anyhow...and as a former cop doesn't help their impression of sanity. He blew it...and he needs to be locked figuratively away as he did to so many literally.
Hey prod: It does have some form of regulation. It is called the Constitution of the United States. Just because you want to disregard it when convenient, does not mean it is not there and applicable.
I just have to look at the polling, which is extensive, to see that the vast majority of Americans believe that gun ownership requires some form of regulation.
Your argument that kids aren't polled is bizarre. And to assume that all gun owners agree with your point of view shows how little you pay attention to the debate at large.
Large-capacity magazine bans and universal background checks do have the support of the majority of Americans.
Hey happy - "spewing" is that a new word for you? I bet that is something you do right after you teabag. You little pervert!
Tom Jackson - why are YOU waging a war on women? On Coloradoans?
You apparently support Morse who wants to make women victims of any criminal who wants to attack them. Without a gun for self defense, women are vulnerable. Please don't state they should just call the police. It takes a car 8-15 minutes MINIMUM to get to a home when a call for help comes in. In that time the woman and possibly her children could be raped, sodomized, beaten and killed.
Then look at the military who have fought to keep our country safe. One vet I know had his arm blown off in Afghanistan. He has a hard time getting magazines into his gun to defend his family and himself. If he is limited to 15 round magazines which Morse and the other idiots in the state legislature voted in, but the perps have 30, he will lose.
So don't tell us that YOU are for Coloradoans and a safe and sane city. YOU are as much a danger to this society as Morse is and that is why he is being recalled. Instead go read John Lotts book, MORE GUNS, LESS CRIME and try to disprove his FACTS which you can't because his research and history has proven that an armed society is a polite society.
El producto - Your statement: The majority of Americans support a ban on high-capacity magazines and universal background checks shows that you do absolutely nothing but repeat the Democratic talking points. There is NOTHING To support that statement! You make yourself look foolish for saying so.
There are over 100 million gun owners in the United States. There are about that many young ones who don't know, don't care, or whom haven't been polled in this matter, so that is 200 million who don't support your talking point above.
Instead of being ignorant and spouting nonsense, go read MORE GUNS, LESS CRIME by John Lott. He has proven with exhaustive research that crime goes down when guns come up.
Those are FACTS and you cannot disprove them! So do us a favor and get some education before you post nonsense like you did above.
quite an anti-Morse spewing! must be a repubican because your argument boils down to scare the women and old farts. the gunut sheriff's are the one who brought about the lawsuit, so are responsible for the costs... just like this entire recall, a enormous waste of taxpayers money. the majority of people want gun safety measures and the recall will be defeated by rational people thinking rationally... not by fear based arguments.
