Well, I guess you don't really need honor and respect to be a drone pilot

Re: “Sexual assault victims say Air Force Academy uses mental health counseling to get rid of them

This article is a demonstration of paranoid delusions on the part of the author.

There is not one single fact in this article that is not contaminated by the author's political "spin."

Study, after study, after study shows that the vast majority of accusations of sexual assault, especially in a military context, are false accusations.

Note that the complaining accusers were diagnosed with personality disorders. This is significant. People with Narcissistic personality disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder are highly likely to make false accusations. This is a scientific fact.

Re: “Reader: The timing of the movement couldn't be better

DNC Rigging the Primaries, simplified
Mom and Dad: Hey kids, only 1 of you gets a playstation for xmas but they are expensive. We are asking both of you to pitch in 50 bucks to help out with the cost. (Timmy and Jane both hand over 50 bucks each)
Mom and Dad: We decided to give Jane the playstation before we even asked for the 50 bucks. Here you go Jane.
Timmy: That's not fair, can I get my 50 bucks back, or can you guys at least apologize?
Mom and Dad: No. You get neither. But next year we are giving one of you an xbox 1 and those are expensive too. We really really want you to pitch in 50 bucks again.
Timmy: I need new parents.

Re: “Trying for single-payer health care in Colorado

The plan in Grand Junction, CO that you're referring to does NOT replace insurance. In fact, if you READ the details, they tell you that you WILL NEED insurance along with your $79/month "membership" in the clinic. This plan does NOT COVER specialists, hospitalization, emergency room visits, and a host of "other healthcare services". In addition, it appears that you may NOT get in to see a doctor right away - they limit the number of patients each physician treats. Glad it's working for you.

Re: “Sexual assault victims say Air Force Academy uses mental health counseling to get rid of them

I know there will be an avalanche of criticism for this article but the truth needs to be told.
I had a cadet at USAFA and know lots of inside stories that were never revealed. The stories were terrible--i.e. sexual abuse and rape between cadets and staff, drugs, guns, violence, favoritism toward athletes and more. I also know how the so-called counseling is a trap that forces cadets out of the Academy. One female cadet with a very high GPA was told she could graduate but would not be commissioned because she took a low dose antidepressant had an eating disorder. Her eating disorder was dieting.
I want to respect and hold USAFA in high regard but they must change and clean up their act.

Re: “Colorado Medicaid changes its policy on opioid drugs in response to crisis

Any state, city, or country that thinks legislating what goes on between doctors and patients is going to stop addicts from abusing substances in completely insane! It's like blaming the person who sells beer at the liquor store for an alcoholic's behavior! If an addict wants to find a drug or other substance or activity to chase a 'high' (food, shopping, sex, all can lead to addictions, should we regulate those via government controls too??) with, they will simply try and find something more readily available, or take more risk when the safer alternatives that were there no longer are! The only people you are TRULY hurting are people who will be bedridden in pain after surgery because the doctor needs to give them a month worth of pain meds, but can only give them a week! You are already causing an American Holocaust among people with severe chronic pain who used to be able to work, care for their children and homes, and have some measurable quality of life. That has been stripped from thousands of people. They are losing their jobs, their homes, their independence, and even their lives because you are legislating what should be between doctor and patient!

Re: “Stormwater ballot measure lacks strong public support

Republicans in this town love to claim that it is liberals who keep people slaves with taxes. Then they allow their republican mayor to increase taxes unless it is for their schools. I wonder some days about the collective IQ of a group of people who don't ensure that developers are doing quality work, watching the contracted who repair roads or even the utility company who does work and then roads collapse.

I, unpopularily-agree with Bruce. Again. I'm not really a fan of his, but it's usually this obvious that more often than not,co spgs cannot form an opinion at all, until they know his to rebut.

Re: “Cannabis and skin cancer

Hey! I cant believe this. A great testimony that i must share to all cancer patient in the world i never believed that their could be any complete cure for lung cancer or any cancer,i saw peoples testimony on blog sites of how Dr. Ogbefun Patrick cannabis oil brought them back to life again. i had to try it too and you can,t believe that in just few weeks i started using it all my pains stop gradually and i had to leave without the drugs the doctor gave to me before then. Right now i can tell you that few months now i have not had any pain, and i have just went for text last week and the doctor confirmed that there is no trace of any cancer system. Glory be to God for leading me to this genuine to Dr. Ogbefun Patrick . I am so happy as i am sharing this testimony. My advice to you all who thinks that their is no cure for cancer that is Not true ,just contact him on via Email: and get cannabis oil from Dr. Ogbefun Patrick to your cancer and you will be free and free for ever, Try it and you will not regret it because it truly works. One thing i have come to realize is that you never know how true it is until you try. There is no harm in trying. Remember, delay in treatment leads to death.

Re: “Air Force Academy has a distorted view of sexual assault says former employee

I can't speak for the victims of sexual assault, but I thank Teresa for her dedication to helping them. Her courage and persistence have helped many lives.

NO thanks to the Academy, whose administrators have persecuted Teresa as well as the victims. Shameless, cowardly drones all.

Re: “Doug Lamborn hires "faith outreach" aide

Theocrats are a good cash crop -- much emotion, little critical thinking, and a belief that they possess the ultimate truth, so all a politician needs to do is parrot them. Oh and say abortion a few times! It's easy and no wonder Trump wants churches to have more say. His support from evangelicals in the first place speaks volumes.

Re: “Colorado Medicaid changes its policy on opioid drugs in response to crisis

the long term side effects of tylenol are more serious than many diseases,this is a bad idea and potentially life threatening,,and synthetic drug may have amultiplicity of fatal side effects now just what the do gooders are trying to prove..I don;t know but,some of them should trade pain levels with cancer patients for awhile.addiction deaths are for the largest percentage occurring on recreational users(95%).Patient perscribed opoids are done so for a reason. Let the doctor decide and stay out of what is not your affair

Re: “Reader: Drivers, manslaughter is not on your bucket list

I'm sorry you had such bad luck, but don't pretend every driver is out to get you. Even on my worst bike commute ever, I interacted with two stupid people, and about 600 other vehicles that respected me and my space.

Re: “Trying for single-payer health care in Colorado

Listing all the statistics of those who have health insurance is a pride in failure. Why is "Insurance" needed? Isn't health care a basic need? Is it less important than Police or Fire protection? Why doesn't the State provide health services? The best solution for our health Care problem is for Congress to remove the federal government from the equation except to collect taxes and return them to the States on a per capita basis (to level the playing field in terms of wealth). The States then can afford to simply provide health care to their residents as a service like Police and Fire protection. there would be no insurance company involvement at all. Preexisting conditions would be irrelevant. Care would cost the absolute minimum without profits. Can the States do it? Of course they can since our States are comparable to all the foreign Nations that already are doing it and doing it well.

Re: “In race to the top, women of color unfairly come in last

Black women -- and black men, who in your mind don't exist-- would be much better off, had not liberals committed one of the most racist acts in history:

"Why affirmative action failed black families where it matters most"…

This is not what you think it is.
