Re: “Fewer Colorado Springs cops work the streets as crime rises

teabagger mentality is wait until the problem is overwhelming and will cost 10 times more to fix it... but save a few pennies today... teabagger city will never change until we elect people who will think beyond the next day, month or year. let crime get really bad... where it effects some rich old farts and then we will see some action... just like they did with the roads. freaking teabagger mentality is killing this town.

Re: “City, Broadmoor negotiating over portions of the city's water system

Berry also says no decision will happen "without a public discussion/process and vote by the Utilities Board/City Council."

Suthers concurred, saying, "If a sale is proposed, there will be plenty of opportunity for public discussion."

If the preceding words were not so sadly misused in practice .... it would almost be funny to see them in print on the heels of the Strawberry Fields' landslide of public opposition being completely and utterly dismissed.

I'll say this for you gentlemen, you have no shortage of empty words.

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

Whether it be a Christian Bible, a Muslim Qu'ran, a Hindu Gita, a Wiccan Book of Shadows, or any other religious text, it has no place being displayed " in front of a computer keyboard for years" "in a common work area." Removing the Bible from the "common work area" in now way infringes on anyone's right to worship their god or practice their religion.

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

You know, I find that the most interesting fact of this debate on bringing religious items to work for display to others by a commander is the same argument that the Conservative Christian is now using was the same argument against gay rights in the ‘90s, SPECIAL RIGHTS FOR A SPECIFIC GROUP.

Now that Gay/ Transgender Rights are considered Civil Rights by the US government, the conservatives are all alarmed and claiming that their rights have been taken away from them. I would just like to say as a 55 year old lesbian, HOW DOES IT FEEL? Not so great, but guess what, the world is changing and you may not like it but that is only because you are no longer the group in control. The next generation will take us to the next level without your bs. I am no longer a second class citizen and the Constitution of the USA will prevail in this matter. LMAO to you trolls, Rose White & Ironwood!!!

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

quite the display of religious rituals... did all you religious freaks stand up or knee at the appropriate times?? did you say the appropriate number of amens? some of you brain washed even argued against your case. you cannot state that there is only real religion that should be recognized when this is exactly what the law is trying to stop in the gov. setting...

keep that crap in your church or in your home. the more you shove it down the rest of our throats the more it appears unseemly and makes you appear weird and freaky.

you argue against science with... a fairy tale book... ok then.

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

Tell me, if Americans come and visit this base in peace are we going to see other "religious" books, prayer rugs, prayer beads or any other religious works on display or at someone's personal work space??? Truly, we would like to know; after all it has been observed "hypocrisy" is abound in all arenas of across America.

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

I have plenty more to say about the supposed age and the cause of the formation of the earth ( that some scientists change at whim to fit their world view and try to make the puzzle pieces fit like they want them to ), the definition that you gave, as well as your religion that sickens and saddens me. I am however done going back and forth with you in this venue. We have gotten into a back and forth (that I started to try to help in some way) and even though it stems from the original story, I think we should carry on in private email if you still want to discuss this further. The people know are views, hopefully will side with truth but either way, it should not be turning into me vs you here. Respond with your email if you would like to have some more correspondence about this. I'll be happy to oblige. If not, then take care. Just remember, when judgment comes, and it could be now after your next heart beat or many, many years from now, but you have heard the truth and you will not be able to use that as an excuse as to why you did not accept his love and forgiveness and thus will live in eternal torment. I sincerely am sad for you.

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

But I have hair, glands that secrete milk, and I give live birth and live on the surface of a planet that came into being sometime between 4.5 and 6 billion years ago.

noun
1.
any vertebrate of the class Mammalia, having the body more or less covered with hair, nourishing the young with milk from the mammary glands, and, with the exception of the egg-laying monotremes, giving birth to live young.

And according to your previous post, I have religion.

"Even if your belief is in atheism or you claim to be agnostic, you are believing in something, which Yes, is a religion."

You are not one. Nor is any other human being. Do you recognize ultimate truth or is everything relative to you?

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

Staci6, We are not, nor have we ever been animals. We were created in the image of God; fully what we are today biologically speaking. Call it what you will as far as intolerance or whatever. The point is, there is and absolute right and wrong as well as absolute truth and untruth whether you choose to "Tolerate" it or not. I am sorry that you have been convinced by the ignorance of Darwinism which happens to be the tool that has helped destroy what is good and decent in the world. I hope that some day you and others who have bought into that nonsense can read and accept the truth presented in the bible and learn what a loving and gracious God he is and the peace that comes from having a personal relationship with him. If you're honest with yourself, you know there is an empty spot within your soul and nothing on this earth will satisfy it. No material thing, money, possessions, sexual relations etc. We were created with this void that can only be filled with our loving creator. Once you're honest with yourself, in the quietness of your own thoughts, you will know what I'm saying about something always being missing in your life. I pray that you accept his love and forgiveness someday for your sake. I truly mean this when I say that I wish God's blessings for you and for the other people who have not realized this ultimate truth.

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

As nasty and intolerant as these comments get when religion is involved really illuminates the point that the human animal is a deuterostome!

Re: “If voters approve, could ColoradoCare really pay for itself? It's complicated

Two points:

1. Although it's noble to provide healthcare for all, I don't think just one state could do that. Consider how many sick people from other states would move here if Colorado unilaterally provided health care. To make it work it would have to be done at the National level, i.e. Medicare for all.

2. It does nothing to attack the high cost of health care. To do that we would need to increase the supply of doctors, e.g. make medical school tuition free for qualified students. That won't happen at the state level.

"But if from thence though shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find Him, if thou seek Him with all thy heart and with all thy soul... (For the Lord thy God is a merciful God;) He will not fosake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which He aware unto them."

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

Having a Bible on one's desk is no different than having pictures of one's family displayed in public view. We have allowed the growing spoiled-brat, anti-American element, or "squeaky wheel" if you will, to get their way by whining and shouting out their ridiculous demands to a weak and politically-correct leadership not well-grounded in their commitment to preserve and defend these great American principles and values when they come under attack from those who have never understood what it means to be a true American! Sentence might be a little too long, but you get the picture!!!

Way to go "happyfew". You have learned your robotic Obama talking points very well. Keep up the good work, and maybe you will "earn" your 72 virgins when you go to your happy Muslim hunting ground. Somewhere down below, isn't it???

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

Lord Jesus I pray for the safety of All men and women. I pray that you change their hearts to follow you. Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, and that I am your servant, and that I have done all these things at Your word. "Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that You are the Lord God, and that You have turned their hearts back to You again." Thank you GOD
