Re: “CO House District 18 race is assured

So we have a useless Clintonite incumbent in Lee, a Trumpster Diver in Forth, and a Libertarian in Norman Dawson, MBA.

I'll take the MBA Libertarian.

Or, they could take a different approach and run the PD like the FD and keep them in the station until a call comes in.

Re: “Commentary: CSPD operates under a veil of mystery

You post that the CSPD responded "none of your beeswax". Seems journalistically irresponsible to place something in quotes when it is not a direct quote. Work on your journalistic integrity, Ms Zubeck.

May I also point out that the fact you have to keep scrounging up this same story over and over is indicative of the fact this this is NOT the norm at CSPD, as you repeatedly imply in your coverage. Otherwise, I'm certain you'd have new material every day, given the several thousand contacts CSPD makes every single week. If CSPD were brutalizing citizens on the regular without cause, maybe you'd be able to stop beating THIS dead horse.

Re: “Bible approved for AFB desk

So the same person who approved said bible is the one investigating? Gee, that's not a conflict of interest or anything.

Watch an officer put out a highlighted copy of ANY other religious text, and he'd have it removed so fast his head would spin. Government officials may not endorse religion. Period.

Re: “Bible approved for AFB desk

I GUESS WE WILL HAVE TO GET THE ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) TO SUE THEM ON THIS MATTER: MRFF founder Mikey Weinstein called the investigation "a sham and a travesty," because Col. Lisa Johnson, the commander who approved the Bible's placement in the first place, apparently was the one in charge of the investigation. That hasn't been confirmed by the Air Force, however.

Re: “Hope swings eternal

Diane, Solo didn't as much 'walk back' her comments as to explain them. Paraphrasing: she's a bad loser, apparently, so that's OK then. If you can show me a professional athlete who's a good loser, I'll show a professional athlete who should be preparing for a very short career. Her follow up comments were the furthest thing from an apology that one can imagine:….

Part of the reason Solo is being so vilified is because this is just the next in a LONG line of outbursts from her, pillorying her USWNT predecessors, former coaches, opposing team coaches, and just about anyone else who gets her back up.

I'm not going to call her out for her passion - in fact, I applaud that. I won't apologize though for being another to bring attention to the inappropriate way in which she conducts herself. So to clarify, you're quite happy with what she said and how she represented herself, her team, and her nation at the Olympics? You would just rather she got a pass?

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: “Bible approved for AFB desk

Mikey Weinstein is a hero, standing up for the rights of others when they fear to stand up for themselves due to the nature of the superior/subordinate relationship in the military and the prevalence of evangelical/dominionistic tendencies among the senior enlisted and officers. He seeks to hold ALL the military leadership to their own regulations and US law, especially constitutional law.

Re: “Hope swings eternal

@Melchett - I said Ronaldo got much less flak, no one seriously called for him to quit the game..or worse. I also didn't argue tactics. Bunkering is an accepted tactic but it doesn't stop a player from feeling they didn't have a chance to actually play the game, much like a home run hitter would feel disappointed when they are intentionally walked, without a chance to actually play the game. Athletes of all kinds have made comments immediately after a game that aren't pretty, and the media seeks them out hoping they'll catch them in one. Solo says it like she feels and I won't fault her for that. Like I said she walked back her choice of words later, but you refuse to acknowledge that apparently.

@happyfew - you already didn't like Solo, so I'm not surprised you agree. To say she's a horrible person, who I assume you only know through media, is quite the judgement. I only know you through your comment, so I'll reserve judgement.

Re: “Hope swings eternal

agree with melchett, there is no sportsmanship is putting down the other team... only a lack of it. especially when you are in the Olympics, you not only embarrass yourself but your entire country. she is a horrible person... and she shows it in times of stress.
