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.

Re: “Hope swings eternal

Sorry, Diane, but that's nonsense. Ronaldo got flak for his comments, too, and rightly so.

There is no such thing as, 'and refuses to give you a chance to play the game as intended'. Some teams are better playing a certain way than others. Using your rationale, any team playing Barcelona in the last decade should hang their heads in shame because none were able to match their tika-taka play, and on those occasions when a team were able to eek out a victory through playing a more conservative type game containing Barca, they should be even more ashamed of themselves. How dare they try and impede Barca's ability to exploit space between the lines and carve them to pieces!

I would agree with you that there are varying degrees of beauty (subjectively speaking) to which the game can be played. Sweden - much like Iceland v Portugal - may not have the prettiest approach to getting the job done. But I've often found that while someone is pointing the finger at an opponent suggesting they couldn't get the job done in the 'right' way, they tend to ignore the irony of 3 fingers pointing back at them.

The US fell short, Solo had a poor tournament, she's bitter about it, and apparently incapable of conducting a post-game interview that maturely expresses that.

Re: “Hope swings eternal

Solo said what she felt and if most people who have played a sport are honest with themselves they've felt the same way. If your opponent refuses to play in a way that you know they are capable of and refuses to give you a chance to play the game as intended, then you feel hard done by..and in the aftermath of losing to that opponent, in the immediate aftermath - on a global stage, you might just say how you feel. She did walk it back in a later statement, but no one seems to want to acknowledge that. Of course parking the bus is a tactic, but one that almost every opponent hates, so seeing Solo say what many of us have felt was refreshing and vindicating for many of us less accomplished sportswomen. Ronaldo said the same thing using different verbiage and got much less flak because you know, men are supposed to be competitive..women, not so much.

Re: “Green Party presidential hopeful comes to Colorado

Jill is visiting Colorado Springs because voters deserve to learn about all possible choices for POTUS. This presents a historic opportunity being that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are the most disliked candidates in history.

Keep in mind that there are also 118,934 unaffiliated active members and thousands of inactive voters who didn't vote during the last general election, more than likely because neither candidate excited them! Also, while El Paso County only has 911 registered Greens, I was still able to earn 11,264 votes when I ran for County Commissioner District 2 in 2012 on the Green Party ticket. Clearly, it DOES make sense for Jill to visit COS.

We cannot have a real debate about politics if some voices are silenced or left out. We invite all who do not feel represented by Clinton or Trump to join us!

Re: “Green Party presidential hopeful comes to Colorado

Update. There are now only 8,611 registered Greens in Colorado. As of yesterday I changed my registration from Green to Democratic. I can no longer in, good conscience, support divisive crackpots who call America's first black president an "Uncle Tom." So please, count me out.

Re: “Bible removed from desk at Peterson AFB

Rose White it is opened to Philippians 2:16.

The rule seems open for interpretation and not very cut and dry. I think that saying the presence of a book is sending a message is over the top however I have worked places where the contents of a cube area were reduced to allowing a family photo to reduce the chances of someone being offended.

I think that people are over sensitive and a person who is feeling offended also has to have tolerance to others beliefs. Especially when they are not preaching or proselytizing. Once command said they would look into the issue it should have been done swiftly and settled. I don't necessarily like that Mr. Weinstein can't work quietly with the the base personnel. I also think those commenting as being pro bible haven't been very polite in voicing their disapproval that a bible may not belong on a Military office.

Re: “He's baa-aack! Mike Miles appointed to charter school board.

My 14 year old flourished last year skipping the last 3 semesters of 8th grade, straight A's maybe 1 B and going straight into 9th grade..passed her summer course of 9th grade biology with a 92% only to start 10th grade on Tuesday with rude & military style of staff!!! Kids, even high schooler have to raise their hands to be excused from the table, escorts to the bathroom & no drinking water when walking through the school!! I mean come on!!! My daughter is not a problem child or is she disruptive in class, but when she comes home in tears something is wrong!!! I am very disappointed in myself for not paying more attention to who is coming into our school districts! I take pride in my child's academics, but I will not stand by and have my child treated in this way....hell have no fury like a mother being pissed off at the way her child is being treated!!!!!

What about the irony of a walking dead lesbian being offended too?
