Re: “UPDATE: Academy "partners" with religion, drawing criticism

The Academy's feeble response ignores Air Force Instruction 35-110, paragraph http://6.3.1.2, which states, in part:

"Band support at events which are commercially sponsored, designed to increase business traffic, or associated with a particular religious or ideological movement … or would trivialize Air Force participation … is not authorized."

Anyone who's familiar with New Life Church would recognize that it is very much a "particular religious or ideological movement," and that this concert should never have been allowed.

But I guess we shouldn't be surprised when an institution that doesn't know its own operating budget turns around and violates its own regulations. Or maybe it's OK to violate your own regulations when you only do it 3.2 percent of the time?

How does a press release "sniffle"?

Re: “TSA agent threatens Advice Goddess over assault claim

Harley883 has clearly never been a victim of sexual violence -- that much is clear when she makes comments like "She ... really enjoyed it ..." and "this amy (sic) chick needs to get over it." Harley, I hope you never have to endure what Ms. Alkon had to endure, especially not by an agent of the government in the name of "security."

Re: “Sheriff asking for the moon, and over 100 new employees

Has the sheriff's department explained why they need $11 million dollars? That's a lot of money by anyone's standards.

Re: “Protesters offer Lamborn 10 easy steps

Actually, CSaction, private property, in many circumstances, *does* trump the First Amendment. Try protesting in the parking lot of a WalMart or in front of a neighbor's house, and you *can* be arrested for trespassing.

Re: “A sad sign on I-25

One might need look no further than the folks who frequently depart the interstate at Exit 156B to determine the individual(s) responsible for this foul act.
