Never heard of the discovery news before (and it doesn't sound like anything I would read) however if you truly believe that a magazine left in a waiting room indicates endorsement than you are an idiot. If you are worried that an academy cadet would be brainwashed because he sat next to a religious publication, then we should be concerned about the quality of recruits. Separation of church and state does not require that government facilities and employees be completely devoid of religion or any spec of personal religious material then you have no idea about the Constitution. I shouldn't have wasted my time reading this post, it is as devoid of fact and truth as the magazine they are crying about.
Wow, a flier left behind at the clinic??? Conspiracies abound. The constant drumming up of controversy by this publication and Weinstein are beyond the pale. Guess the Indy is the ready vehicle for fake news. Sad
You guys at Flux are awesome.
While it may be thought unreasonable to criticize the clinic staff for the single instance of the anti-science 'Discovery Institute's' fundamentalist Christian agitprop being present (perhaps some 'outside agitator' had just put it there) the functional part of the victim's complaint is "... previously on two appointments I had ignored Christian proselytizing materials found there...". In other words, this is an habitual occurrence; hence the clinic staff and, more importantly, their supervisors should have been aware of this repetitive 'attack' on the government clinic's Constitutional requirement to not 'establish' a preferred religion and should have taken the necessary steps (e.g.; posting a sign like 'Please leave no unauthorized material' or more aggressive measures) to insure that its patrons are not confronted with religious proselytizing in a circumstance suggesting it is official U.S. government dogma... one can only imagine the uproar had the document be a Qu'ran! Sadly, however, such tacit endorsement of a 'state religion', dominionist Christianity, has become the rule rather than the exception at AFA. Happily, Mikey & MRFF are johnny-on-the-spot to hold the proper feet to the fire.
Bravo, Pam. As we all know, the Broadmoor is a power unto itself!
As Christian supremacy becomes more & more embedded in the highest levels of our once-secular government, this cadet's actions, whether an informed & intentional act of sedition against the Constitution he's sworn to protect & defend, or merely the act of an ignorant naif, once more places the AFA, an hotbed of recurrent domionist Christian influenced anti-constitutional acts, at the center of the 'no establishment' clause. By virtue of making his religious statement in uniform, he lends the weight & power of the U.S. government to his religious ideology; an act the founders knew led to unending religious conflicts and their attendant horrors and consequently forbade in the founding document. In the past, the AFA hierarchy has seen fit to empower regime-friendly 'kangaroo courts' to assess compliance with Constitutional obligations (e.g.; the football team's prayer circles issue absolution) producing the expected result of 'no problem'. One has little hope that this latest transgression will result in a 'teachable moment' any more than those prior have done.
Something to ponder:
As the article states, the Broadmoor made an attempt on Cheyenne Mountain Blvd but backed off under intense public pressure. We also know that the Broadmoor backed off an attempt to put riding stables on the east side of 21st Street across from Bear Creek Park .... also under intense public pressure. We've been told that the public reaction to the Broadmoor Land Swap was more vigorous and pronounced than, "anything in recent memory". And yet the Broadmoor has not backed off.
Why? Can anyone offer simple input as to .... "Therein lies the difference"?

So he's going to be come a political consult on what, how to fail at campaigning and winning a winnable campaign while being Ed Jones 2.0?
Nobody ever accused CDOT of competence.
Yet you don't see the HD17 rep doing legislation to decommission Business Route 24 and return it to the cities and county, either.
Get that done first, then the cities can continue to fix it right.
Lost in the entire article is question that was never asked in the first place, which is why we need government permission slips and fees to use OUR property on OUR roads...
Dan Marvin: Well, what did you expect from a con man RINO who is actually a Democrat? Ron Paul? (BTW, you would have gotten the same old S*** from Hillary, too!)
Robert B. Hoff: Or maybe he won't. Time will tell. But Hillary will try again in 2020 if she lives that long.
Ryan Carrigan: Thank you for your service, but you miss part of it. Clinton lost because she didn't campaign worth a crap on anything except that she wasn't Donald Trump.
Ken Burrows: Complain about Trump all you want, but with Hillary and her PC insanity, would it have been any better or different save the flip on who's acting out? Unlikely.
Ron Lowe: When you get a clue about how and why the Electoral College works, and that the Presidential election is not one national election but 51 state elections (and DC), then get back to us. We are not a democracy, so quit whining as if we were.
Gina Douglas: Have a binky for your whining. Your career criminal Hillary lost because she was a lousy candidate who campaigned poorly. Place your whining blame where it belongs: on her.
January 2027: The world finally realizes that the entire AGW argument was nothing more than an elaborate hoax put forth by scheming liberals to do nothing more than achieve their ultimate goal of planetary enslavement under the liberal socialist political mantra, plunging the entire world into poverty and repression in the name of the liberal religious cult of scientism known as AGW, all to satisfy some elaborate and completely false narrative that somehow they know what's best, when in fact, they don't know Jack Schitt.
What a glorious mountain of a hot mess of AGW garbage!
Here's the reality: the climate of the planet, like everything else natural in the known universe, oscillates in sine waves. Right now it happens to be on a relative upcurve of that specific wave for climate. But it isn't linear, and it will peak soon, if it hasn't already, and then it will decline again, as it always does.
And there isn't a darn thing the human insect can do about it one way or another. The laws of nature will cause its own adjustments, not because of humans, but in spite of them.
But such reality is just completely destructive to the huge egos and smugness of the irrational and incorrect liberal mindset that they and only they in their alleged superior mindset can solve the problems that the allegedly lesser minds of non-liberals have caused. The reality is that the liberals don't know squat because they arrive at their analysis with pre-ordained conclusions based on fallacious reasoning and emotive nonsense, then Finagle the data to fit that pre-ordained conclusion instead of actually see what the full data actually says--and it says that their conclusions are simply FOS.

Don't we need the Strawberry Fields deal to go through before that happens?
PLEASE GO TO LINK & TELL GOV BROWN TO MEET WITH SEX WORKERS TO DISCUSS DECRIMINALIZATION! YES ITS TRUE PIMPS & BAD PEOPLE CAN NOT COMPETE WITH INDEPENDENT ADULT SEX WORKERS! WHEN ITS DECRIMINALIZED!
"Now that Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States of America, do you want to know why? It is simple: Hillary Clinton called me a 'deplorable....'" That's it, huh? You chose to be hurt or insulted or piqued or whateverthehell because you think she called you a name? Drumpf said Mexicans were murderers and rapists and must be kept out of our pristine white country with a impenetrable wall, and you were okay with that?? He called women "bitches" and "whores" and bragged that he could grab them by the private parts and they couldn't do anything about it--and that's alright with you? But god forbid Clinton call you something. He threatens to jail, deport, and otherwise harm people because of their choice of faith paths, dismembering families, separating parents and children, but that's no skin off your nose because you're not Muslim, right? You're not female, disabled, black, elderly, homeless, gay--so you're okay with all of the danger those "other" people are in. But, but, but--she called me a bad name!!! Sheesh....
Ghandi said, " I like your Christ. Your Christians, not so much."
Sure, the city is working on meeting the new clean-air standards now, but the whole point is that they've been polluting out of control for decades and lying to cover it up.
