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: http://nypost.com/2016/08/13/hope-solo-adm….

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.
