We are currently being screwed and we all know it. ColoradoCare potentially gives us, as individuals supporting this economy, the opportunity to save a lot of money on health care. I don't know about you but for $1500+ a month for a family of 4, making just enough to not qualify for government assistance, that is way too much money. On top of that, a 10k max out of pocket on individual and a 15k on family. INSANE SINCE WE PAY OVER 18K A YEAR ON PREMIUMS - not to mention co-pays and prescriptions. We don't even come close to using 18K in medical services. Privatization of health care is NOT universal/socialized healthcare. Its called stickin' it to the people. Stick it to us at the liquor store or the dispensary if necessary. Also, I just want to point out that those who do make so little income that they qualify for government subsidies actually end end up paying for it out of their tax returns. What is the saying... if it isn't broke, don't fix it? Well this system is BROKEN - so why not try something new. At least this is a step in the right direction. Love and light, friends, love and light.
Eeek ! Watch Out ! That bible's gonna bite you ! It's Freedom of Religion not freedom from Religion.
People: gov't imposed (i.e. mandatory, not voluntary) health-care has been a disaster from inception to it's current state of flawed implementation.
Can you show in the Constitution where the Feds can force the citizenry to purchase a private good, service or commodity under penalty-of-law? Is such regulation really their function, and why would you invest them with that kind of power?
They can't keep the USPS solvent, but you'd entrust them with a sixth of the economy?
This house of collapsing cards was built on lies--guess who uttered this whopper? ""If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan."--and required support of the "stupid" (the administation's term, not mine) to pass and enact it.
Time to dismantle it all and get back to individuals *gasp* making their own decisions and choices.
What people are getting wrong here, is the academy is not getting you ready to serve. It's getting you ready to lead. Big difference, they are making the future officers of the air force. It's going to be the hardest thing you do in your life. If you can't cut it, they weed you out because you would be jeopardizing those you are responsible for. It's the same reason us army ranger school is basically mandatory for infantry officers. They want to find the people who don't have the skillset, or internal Constitution to be able to prevail no matter what the circumstances are. Is it fair? Probably not, but then again, neither is war, and that's the purpose behind the service academies.
So the kind of screwing we are currently getting is one that we DO want? How ridiculous is that?
You should get your facts straight. Since retirement income is exempted from the tax up to a point over the amount that most seniors will see, most will likely pay NO tax. Small businesses that are currently providing health insurance for their employees will see savings, not increased costs. Others will see healthier employees and likely less turnover.
We only have two choices in November. We can vote YES on 69, or we can continue the current system which is a total disaster.
Our current healthcare insurance system is broken and if you've had a serious illness or injury in your family you know how brutally it treats you even if you have insurance.
It's time to stop throwing chili suppers and bake sales to help out our relatives, friends and neighbors who get clobbered by medical bills. We need a serious healthcare system that covers every Coloradan all the time. ColoradoCare would eliminate the waste, profits and politics from healthcare. The savings would be enough to cover every Coloradan with top quality healthcare, and no deductibles.
Don't go on just crossing your fingers, hoping your health will be good. You owe it to yourself and your fellow Coloradans to learn more about ColoradoCare, volunteer, donate and vote for it in the November election. www.ColoradoCare.org
Tannin - even the exceptionally good ones? Had a bad court experience have you? Done some time have you? Got a brain have you?
No evaluation needed. Thow them all out!
>Of course, not everyone is happy about the prospect. Americans for Prosperity Colorado, backed by the billionaire Koch brothers, released a statement claiming that raising the minimum wage won't reduce poverty and will reduce jobs in the state by tens of thousands.
Of course, the Indy, in its liberal biased cluelessness, has to add a shot at them in the article as a matter of course.
Nevermind that a minimum wage hike is also a tax hike and is a disaster for the economy and small businesses.
In simple terms, we taxpayers can't afford this mess.
A tripling of income taxes on fixed-income seniors and small business owner/operators?
A doubling of the state government, placed in the hands of one board?
A single board deciding what get covered for care and when and what doesn't?
VOTE NO on 69. It's a kind of screwing we don't want.
Who owns the house? If his mother owns the house, she is entirely responsible for the upkeep and it doesn't matter who is the tenant. The house next to our home is a Victorian tuned into 5 apartments. If we have an issue with any of the tenants or upkeep of the property, we call the landlord. It's then the responsibility of the landlord to ensure the property is maintained or the tenant in question is handled appropriately. If the landlord is not responsive in a timely manner, we call regularly for a couple of days and if the property is unsightly or unsafe - usually goes hand in hand - we then contact code enforcement.
You point was lost in the fact you are pointing at the NSSI which is an entirely different USAF unit. The RNSSI is not affilited with NSSI nor do they teach astrodynamics. In all fairness, if you are going to poke, please make sure you are poking the correct organization.
A Major has a leadership position and he has a captive audience. What objective is he trying to achieve by making such a point with his studied and marked up bible? Does he want everyone to know how humble he is or perhaps he wants everyone to know how much he loves Christ? No matter what his objective, the NSSI is for learning astrodynamics. It is not a place of worship and this display is inappropriate. How did he arrive at this decision? Maybe he should resign his commission and go start a church somewhere, because it would be better to have a copy of “Fundamentals of Astrodynamics and Applications”, or “Understanding Space” on display as those books are not some bronze age fantasy. He has brought disgrace and discredit to his organization.
The mission of the military is to defend our diverse nation - not promote religion. A military person's sworn oath is to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States...and bear true faith and allegiance to the same". The Constitution provides for separation of church & state & prohibits public imposition of private religious beliefs on other Americans (USA Constitution 101). Military service is public, religious beliefs are private. Military persons who do not comprehend this and disrespect, dishonor & disregard our Constitution and their sworn oath need to be disciplined & required to take a refresher course on the Constitution & their oath. A patriotic American disabled veteran (Vietnam) & retired Army airborne officer.
A Major, a person who by virtue of his position within the unit, unofficially creating a culture of religious "correctness?" He appears to be serving the wrong master at his desk.

"wild-haired, bearded and more than a bit disheveled"
"Britten didn't show for his latest court date, sparking a municipal court warrant for his arrest...the El Paso County Court also has two warrants out for Britten's arrest"
"the police bomb squad showed up at the house and detonated what appeared to be a "homemade explosive device."
"Britten freely admits he's a meth addict, saying he became a heroin addict at age 11, and his mother got him off the drug and out of homelessness when he was 13. He says he was drinking heavily when he met a girl and fell in love around the age of 20"
"Britten says he and his two roommates are trying to get their lives together, but he freely admits "it's failed dramatically." With the explosives gone, the Britten household has gone back to being what it has long been to the neighborhood: an eyesore"
"Britten also has warrants for failure to appear for court dates relating to probation from drug charges and a burglary that he says was of metal from an "abandoned" lot. Britten says he was unaware of the warrants, explaining that he mixed up one of his court dates with one of Rozsa's court dates. He also says his lack of a car has kept him from the courts"
Yet he continues to move freely about, an addict with multiple warrants, potentially endangering his neighbors.
Britten's mother, who, she says, simply, "Kids will be kids."
Fine, then she can care for him, since he obviously can't do it himself...
Many Military Units have only God to Pray to about the risk and stress of Duty.
Over all the Centuries of conflict and casualties.
Morality and Ethics in War always return to God because Civil Law provides no
explanation of the forgiveness and rebirth known as Peace.
MRFF stuck in Legal Paradox of Civil Law..................only Spiritual and Natural Law sustain
Mankind's Soul and Purpose in Warfare.
