Stop it. Just don't publish such an absurd story and call it news. It's insane to think there was proselytizing going on here by leaving one religious publication in a waiting area that can be populated by anyone, further, if you don't like the message, then don't read it. Easy peasy. Hide it under the other magazines if you so desire, but don't cry wolf on something so ridiculous.

Re: “UPATE: Did dinosaurs and humans co-exist? Flier at USAFA says yes.

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

Re: “UPATE: Did dinosaurs and humans co-exist? Flier at USAFA says yes.

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.

Re: “UPDATE: AFA cadet wears uniform for Christian testimonial

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.

Re: “Utilities set to meet new clean-air standards, official says

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.

Re: “Utilities set to meet new clean-air standards, official says

The truth has come out by the Courts disclosure of CSU effort to lie to the public about the negative health effects of the pollution spewing from Martin Drake. The reason CSU tried to hide the truth from the public is now an open secret. Shame on you Jerry Forte.

Election will provide some "Wiggle" Room for continued progress with Neumann System.

CSU has done a major technical improvement to coal fired Utilities.

Risky, but it has worked, Hat's Off to Them !

Re: “UPDATE: Parks ballot measure down to the wire

it seems like the parks department is all about putting in gates and blocking off trails. the bathrooms are locked and if we are lucky they pick up the trash. be fine to see who is putting the money in their pockets and building swimming pools.

Someone needs to place a Richard Dawkins book next to it on the same table and watch as the xtians scream that they're being persecuted just because other views are allowed to be expressed equally.

Re: “Springs Forward spent more in 2015 than it raised

The people in CSF excel at forming a coalition to further their goals. If those who oppose their viewpoints would whine less and form the same kind of coalition to spread their views, what an interesting and vibrant city it would be.

It's hard work. When the chance was there to make Richard Skorman mayor, those with similar viewpoints didn't vote. Heck, when those who saw that the strong mayor form of government was a crock didn't vote, they lost a big chance to further the local dialogue.

The loyal opposition is not helpless unless it thinks it is, but infighting and Internet opinions at midnight do not get the job done.

Re: “Springs Forward spent more in 2015 than it raised

They are just marking time until it is time for them to select the six district-specific City Council members (April 4, 2017). You'd be wise to vote against the candidates they endorse, although resistance is generally futile when it comes to council races.

Re: “Brother Luck to host Chopped-themed pop-up dinner

Dear, Chef brother Luck;

I cannot afford one dish never-mind two. I want to help those in a boat like mine or financially worst. Too many older or disabled folks, try to live upon $400 to $750 a month. Not a week. Some families are thriving on $1,000 a week, and more. This is way over what 3/5' to 4/5's of the US population survive's upon. Bad pay, is way we have poverty hunger, and homeless.

Its why the US has disease, and premature death. Its a combination of bad diet, and people unable to afford the medication to ease pain. The greed of the Pharmacy company compounds the suffering of humanity. They have already made back their investment in older's drugs as Lyicra, MS Medicines, and biologic's, selling them at $150- $500 a pop. Now they are up to $500 to $2,500 to $6,000 for biologic's a month. Even the people making $1,000 a week cannot afford to have two ailments at a time. Never-mind someone with an income of only $700 in four weeks.

This is the untold everyday reality, of 3/5 and more of Americans. This is not how most of us wants to live. This is not how people Believe the majority of people in a land of wealth lives.

I want to use many avenues to tell the people the hidden facts of life. I would love to have a table sign, informing those who can afford a $95 a plate and worth it, about the other side where people are not paid Enough to cover their expensive. And to those who make much less than the break even cost even $20 can seem like a mountain equal to $1,000, for people who make $1,000 and more a week. I will inform those who can afford for there loved ones and them to eat your scrumptious meal, to feel grateful. I will ask not for Money, but for Ideas. Thoughts on how to make life better for people who survive in a hand to mouth existence, to live a better quality of life. How to pay all people Enough to cover the basics of life, with enough for emergencies, recreation, and a small vacation. JAN
