Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

quite the display of religious rituals... did all you religious freaks stand up or knee at the appropriate times?? did you say the appropriate number of amens? some of you brain washed even argued against your case. you cannot state that there is only real religion that should be recognized when this is exactly what the law is trying to stop in the gov. setting...

keep that crap in your church or in your home. the more you shove it down the rest of our throats the more it appears unseemly and makes you appear weird and freaky.

you argue against science with... a fairy tale book... ok then.

Re: “Memorial lease, feeding hungry kids, ColoradoCare, and more

I have said this before and I will say it again.

Read those responses from LibertyForAll and see, feel the venom, the anger that this man unleashes when someone disagrees with him.

The personal name calling, labeling and insults.

The anger he emits is very disturbing and quite concerning as this man most likely has a rack full of guns.

....Just Sayin!

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

Tell me, if Americans come and visit this base in peace are we going to see other "religious" books, prayer rugs, prayer beads or any other religious works on display or at someone's personal work space??? Truly, we would like to know; after all it has been observed "hypocrisy" is abound in all arenas of across America.

"despicable, just another ugly means that republicans do to subvert our democracy"

Kinda like, I dunno, the DNC fixing the nominating process against Sanders so the Hildebeast would be installed as the candidate, then firing the gal in charge of it just so she could immediately hired by the Clinton campaign?

Do you ever think about the hypocrisies that you contribute here, or does it cause too much cranial distress?

Re: “Memorial lease, feeding hungry kids, ColoradoCare, and more

'This was in large part due to the economic recovery bill past by the Democratic held congress. They also passed the Affordable Care Act during that time. Those we both huge accomplishments"

Hey "Mick", your math is about as faulty as it gets, because annualized growth under BO is pathetic, we've suffered through the first down-grading of our global credit rating ever, and the federal debt has ballooned to $19T+.

As for the ACA, costs are skyrocketing, patients are being dumped, providers are walking away and insurers are abandoning the exchanges in record numbers, but don;t just take my word for it:

"elect Hillary Clinton as president"

Obviously, Mick is okay with a lying, corrupt, geriatric, elitist, unqualified, hypocritical, Socialist, 1%er, serial-rapist enabling mental-defective in the highest office on the planet, which tells you all you need to know about him, and everyone else that "Liked" his suggestion/s, LOL!!!

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: “Memorial lease, feeding hungry kids, ColoradoCare, and more

Kudos Jay...thank you for the factual layout on how ColoradoCare affects businesses.

What Dan Lewis is doing is the same despicable threats that the Koch Brothers, Papa Johns and some other right wing companies including a local Colorado Springs builder (can't remember the name) did during the 2014 presidential elections. It was all lies.

They will tell their employees if they don't vote the way they want them to, their jobs are in jeopardy. It is so despicable, just another ugly means that republicans do to subvert our democracy.

It has become apparent, that republicans hate democracy, and subvert it by threatening jobs, voter suppression laws etc.

Thank you for shining a factual light on the subject.

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

I have plenty more to say about the supposed age and the cause of the formation of the earth ( that some scientists change at whim to fit their world view and try to make the puzzle pieces fit like they want them to ), the definition that you gave, as well as your religion that sickens and saddens me. I am however done going back and forth with you in this venue. We have gotten into a back and forth (that I started to try to help in some way) and even though it stems from the original story, I think we should carry on in private email if you still want to discuss this further. The people know are views, hopefully will side with truth but either way, it should not be turning into me vs you here. Respond with your email if you would like to have some more correspondence about this. I'll be happy to oblige. If not, then take care. Just remember, when judgment comes, and it could be now after your next heart beat or many, many years from now, but you have heard the truth and you will not be able to use that as an excuse as to why you did not accept his love and forgiveness and thus will live in eternal torment. I sincerely am sad for you.

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

But I have hair, glands that secrete milk, and I give live birth and live on the surface of a planet that came into being sometime between 4.5 and 6 billion years ago.

noun
1.
any vertebrate of the class Mammalia, having the body more or less covered with hair, nourishing the young with milk from the mammary glands, and, with the exception of the egg-laying monotremes, giving birth to live young.

And according to your previous post, I have religion.

"Even if your belief is in atheism or you claim to be agnostic, you are believing in something, which Yes, is a religion."

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.

You are not one. Nor is any other human being. Do you recognize ultimate truth or is everything relative to you?

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: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

Staci6, We are not, nor have we ever been animals. We were created in the image of God; fully what we are today biologically speaking. Call it what you will as far as intolerance or whatever. The point is, there is and absolute right and wrong as well as absolute truth and untruth whether you choose to "Tolerate" it or not. I am sorry that you have been convinced by the ignorance of Darwinism which happens to be the tool that has helped destroy what is good and decent in the world. I hope that some day you and others who have bought into that nonsense can read and accept the truth presented in the bible and learn what a loving and gracious God he is and the peace that comes from having a personal relationship with him. If you're honest with yourself, you know there is an empty spot within your soul and nothing on this earth will satisfy it. No material thing, money, possessions, sexual relations etc. We were created with this void that can only be filled with our loving creator. Once you're honest with yourself, in the quietness of your own thoughts, you will know what I'm saying about something always being missing in your life. I pray that you accept his love and forgiveness someday for your sake. I truly mean this when I say that I wish God's blessings for you and for the other people who have not realized this ultimate truth.
