Re: “Pollution control equipment protested

This woman is nuts. She WANTS rolling power outages?!?!? I guess she does because that is WHAT will happen if we lose Drake before they can get replacement infrastructure in place, which will be about or around 2035.

Re: “Local election poll unsurprising

If you think "cracking" the 2 party system will stop things being about $ and favors, you are delusional. Additionally, if there ever were a string 3rd or 4th party, the result would be the coalition governments found in Europe which fall apart all the time. Also it would be very likely that nobody would receive enough votes resulting in the President being chosen by the House of Representatives.

Re: “Couple wants dogs who bit back, saying there's more to the story

I have spent a considerable bit of time with Roxy and I can attest to the fact that she is a wonderful dog. She is obedient and very affectionate. I cannot image this dog hurting anyone. All she want out of life is to play ball and be petted and hugged. My heart breaks every time I think of that sweet dog being locked up all alone. She needs to be around the people who love her and there are a lot of them. The people that dump pit bulls into one category are also the ones that dump people into one category. They don't take the time to really know the facts so they just follow along like sheep.

Re: “The latest on Peterson AFB's Bible dilemma

ALL MEN & WOMEN ARE CREATED EQUAL ACCORDING TO OUR US CONSTITUTION! THIS IS WHY THE BIBLE SHOULDN'T BE THE DOCTRINE OF THE WORKPLACE.

Authorship[edit]
The traditional view is that the "I suffer not a woman…" words are Paul's own words. However, some modern scholars believe on the basis of content, vocabulary, and literary style that 1 Timothy, as well as between two and five other Pauline letters (see Authorship of the Pauline epistles), were not written by Paul but are pseudepigraphical.[5] Borg and other contend that this verse fits poorly with Paul's more positive references to Christian women and may be a later interpolation rather than part of the original text.[6] Still others, including scholars/theologians Richard and Catherine Kroeger, believe Paul did write the epistle of 1 Timothy. They present a case for interpreting 1 Timothy 2:12 as a refutation of false teaching, rather than as a narrow restriction on women's role. Their research leads them to conclude that Paul was addressing a particular problem localized in the Church at Ephesus where Timothy was pastor of the multicultural congregation. A primary example of this paradigm permeates the book they co-authored, I Suffer Not a Woman: Rethinking 1 Timothy 2:11-15 in Light of Ancient Evidence. The book presents the Kroegers' well-documented research which sheds new perspectives to this difficult biblical text. They present considerable evidence concerning newly discovered issues and problems Paul was addressing. They argue that the verse must be interpreted in light of careful exegesis of Greek word usage, the Greco-Roman customs and laws of the day, and the outside influences on the Christian churches of the 1st Century. While holding firm to a literal approach to 1 Timothy 2:11-15, the Kroegers' research argues from the background of changes in the Greek language since the 1st century, Roman empire customs at the time the Apostle Paul wrote 1 Timothy, and the problems that the church in Ephesus was facing with pagan religions. The Kroegers' maintain that gnosticism was taking hold of the Christians at Ephesus, and the women, being given less-to-no education in those days, were more prone to be misled by gnostic beliefs. Those authors present the case that those women with gnostic influence were trying to pass on those erroneous beliefs to others in the Church at Ephesus. Hence, their conclusion is that 1 Timothy 2:12 is a time-and-place refutation of false teaching, not a universal Christian principle for all time.
Unclear meaning of the key word[edit]
1 Timothy 2:12 contains a rare Greek verb, found only here in the entire Bible. It is the word authentein which is ordinarily translated "to usurp authority." Therefore, since there is no “control text” to determine its meaning, no one knows for sure what the word means and exactly what Paul is forbidding.[7] Yet despite that uncertainty, most of the more conservative denominations apply the "usurp authority" translation to their restrictions of women's roles in their churches.

Re: “The latest on Peterson AFB's Bible dilemma

Were Major Lewis to leave the Good Book open to 1 Tim 2:12 for the enjoyment of any female C.O.s he might have, this problem might solve itself...

Re: “The latest on Peterson AFB's Bible dilemma

"...Command decided that Major Steve Lewis could rightfully display his Bible for other service members to see in the work place." Hmmm. The major has that right, I guess, but what does he intend by displaying his open Bible with highlighted passages? Is he not making some point, attempting to advance some non-secular agenda with that display? Sure seems like a distraction to good order and discipline. His field grade influence and this other agenda, and a religious one to boot on his government work desk? I'd say he can believe and express anything PRIVATELY, but not his religion at his US Gov't duty desk.

Re: “Local election poll unsurprising

The only way to 'crack' the 2 party system is stop the money going into politics. Both parties are about $ and favors. Some candidates locally have not taken PAC money for a reason. Until the Koch like rich elite, citizens united and lobby money is taken out of politics a 3rd party never has a chance at the presidential level.

Re: “CSPD announces "do it yourself" policing policy

Hit the nail on the head RT. Lets compare the City of Denver with Colorado Springs.
Denver -- Area 155 square miles : 600k population : 1460 Officers.
Springs -- Area 186 square miles : 450k population : 687 Officers.

So, CSPD has more area to cover, a similar population and less than half of the officers. Plus, if you add that Denver County also has the Sheriffs office patrolling the exact same area and our Sheriff has the whole of El Paso County, you can increase the discrepancy.

This city's refusal to institute a workable property tax is the reason for this issue, among many other issues, including our terrible infrastructure and public transportation. Doing things on the cheap means that you get less services. You can't have everything you want without paying for it.

Re: “Couple wants dogs who bit back, saying there's more to the story

Pit bulls were never known as "nanny" dogs. That MYTH was begun in 1971 by Lillian Roth, a lover of Staffordshire terriers who wished to direct peoples' attention away from the fighting dog roots of pit bull breeds. Pit bulls are currently killing around 15 children each year in the USA and maiming dozens of other children. NO dog is a "nanny" dog, of course, but pit bulls would be the very last dog anyone would choose to "nanny" their children.

A couple of months ago two newborn infants, in separate incidents, were killed by their family pit bull. To propagate such a dangerous myth is to be responsible in part for the mauling, maiming and killing of the hundreds of children maimed and killed by pit bulls. Even BadRap, a pit bull advocacy organization based in California has debunked this cruel and dangerous MYTH.

When choosing a pet dog for your family, choose a breed proven safe over the years and that would NOT be a pit bull. Pit bulls were originally bred a couple of centuries ago in England for the one and only purpose of killing each other in dog fighting pits for blood sport with gambling. They were NEVER intended to be kept in homes as pets. When adopting a pet dog, choose very carefully. Pits are not a good choice, especially if you have young children in your home. Is it worth the risk to you? I hope not!

Re: “Couple wants dogs who bit back, saying there's more to the story

So i know Mike Cook, he's a great guy and my co-worker. He invites his co workers to his home for a get together once a month and i've played with Roxy before. The first time i met her i got the impression where she was one of the most deciplined dog i have ever met! I'm wondering why she bit the officer. She might have been provoked or was just trying to protect the new dog? I say give the couple a chance and give them back their child. I know how much Mike loves his dog, and I dont think its unfair for them to take his dog away.

Re: “Couple wants dogs who bit back, saying there's more to the story

Wow. I've rarely seen such incredible and out loud, in-your-face arrogance about this breed. Here, I'll edify things. Pit Bulls were originally bred to be NANNIES because of the nature of the breed - loyal, protective, sweet and stubborn. Great qualities for a nanny, wouldn't you say? And Mary Ann Redfern is right when she says "pit bulls are not like any other breed" . That's why there are so many breeds to choose from. All the bully breeds (from the Bull Mastiff down to the little Boston Bull Terrier) have specific qualities a potential owner should know - stubborn, loyal, sweet, protective. I agree that you should choose your pet pretty carefully because the ignorant folks that have pit bulls don't allow for their specific traits. If you abuse a chihuahua and piss him off, he'll go all postal on your ass! Know your breed. If you can't handle a bully breed then DON'T GET ONE - duh. But don't trash a breed that you clearly don't understand just because you wanna sound off about it. My 2 daughters own 3 pits between them and I always help them train them. It's a big responsibility to own any dog. Pits should never be your pet on a whim. You want to bitch about vicious breeds? Try a dalmatian. They are pretty twitchy by nature, or a chihuahua. Chihuahuas are pretty temperamental and quick to ire. Just educate yourself especially before you make public posts about pits. You're just embarrassing yourself.
