Re: “Progressive churches prepare to protect immigrants in the heart of Trump country

how does your church say to treat others??? are you truly a moral caring person or are you not???

just because you go to church does not make you a good person... you must show it in your actions... well what is it going to be?!!!

Re: “Progressive churches prepare to protect immigrants in the heart of Trump country

The other two commenters, you can't actually believe that you could argue reason and facts with people who write articles like this, do you? I mean, the author goes so far as to say "...the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) focus was purportedly on removing undocumented immigrants convicted of crimes, but people with very minor infractions often got swept up.." So it's telling me that illegal (undocumented) immigrants with VERY (as if there's a difference between minor and very minor???) minor infractions aren't actually "criminals" convicted of crimes? Seriously? THEY'RE IN THE COUNTRY ILLEGALLY AND THAT'S A F#%KING CRIME!!!

Re: “The tick and the time bomb

Hello, I am 25 years old and I first found out I had herpes 3 years ago. My first outbreak was definitely the worst thing I ever experienced. The bumps and blisters were swollen and red. I had a doctor give me Valtrex but I take the generic. I love the Valtrex because I take 1 gram a day for about a week and its gone. I had a doctor prescribe me Acyclovir but that gave me the worst headaches ever, so I stopped taking it. Since I was first diagnosed I have about 2 outbreaks a year. I have been able to cope with this by having supportive family and friends who look out for me. Even though I wish I never had this disease at all, Im able to deal with it and have a great life. a friend advice me to used herbal medicine and send me web site and email of Dr Aidenojie who was able to help me put an end to the herpes virus. Today i am so much happy and totally free should in case you need urgent help email aidenojiecurehome@gmail.com or visit his web: http://draidenojiecurehome.webs.com

Re: “Progressive churches prepare to protect immigrants in the heart of Trump country

BTW, because these people are actually criminals under this law, those helping them can actually be charged with aiding and abetting or under 8 US Code 1324, the latter usually being a felony.

Re: “Progressive churches prepare to protect immigrants in the heart of Trump country

"Progressive churches prepare to protect immigrants in the heart of Trump country "

Typical misleading headline. There is no threat to legal immigrants.

"But Trump's guidance, issued in January, upended the country's enforcement. That's because it defined "criminal" broadly enough to include everyone in the country without authorization like, say, all the women around this table. "

Again, misleading. Trump did not define what "criminal" is. Long established federal law, 8 US Code 1325 -- last changed over 20 years ago, actually makes them criminals, often felons. Trump is simply enforcing closer to the letter of the law.

Re: “Breathing fire

As a Jew, an Israeli, a veteran and a firearms instructor, I'm surprised that I've never heard of Mel Bernstein. I'm glad to know of his existence and I wish he and his museum/business many more years of nachas and mazal.

Re: “Some Air Force Academy cadets never have a chance — and they leave feeling defeated

As someone who knew older brother from outside view, he should have been allowed to stay. I care about standards, but Kwateng and his younger brother should both still be here. AFA is not a joke and I have seen enough criticisms from people who are clueless just because of criticisms they hear from those who are here. We are changing this place for the better, but baseless criticisms like that slow us down. Yes, some things likely happened that were wrong and they were wrongfully dismissed, but don't exaggerate how bad the whole institution is!

Re: “Blazin 98.5 fans the flames of hip-hop nostalgia

Love the station, but here are my reason's why the Station is struggling to gain a larger percentage of listeners (below the Christian stations for Christs (pun intended) sake!):

1) Afternoon on air flea market (WTF?)
2) Extremely weak signal, either no bass or no treble depending on distance from Platte location. 1000 watt system and can't get my rear-view mirror to budge.
3) No consistency (what time can I tune in just to hear music? Dunno, which is why I stopped tuning in).

This town has needed a Station of this genre forever. The Beat sucks, Magic sucks. Just like the other rock stations and their 20 song rotations daily. We're in the age of online listening (i.e. Pandora, Spotify), time to step up your game or get to steppin'.

Re: “Casting Spells

THIS IS NOT A JOKE. TRUST GREAT DR KUMAR. My names are Gina Tom from United States. Great Dr Kumar is really powerful and knows how to do his job perfectly. If not for him i could not imagine what would have happened. My ex was always picking up an argument with me and was always beating me. He started acting strange and funny and left me for no cause for another girl. I thought all hope was gone. I searched for help on the internet and i came across Great Dr Kumar. I saw so many testimonies about him. I was delighted and i contacted him on his email and told him what was going on. He laughed and assured me to calm down that he will help me and that my ex will come back begging me. He did his work and cast the spell for me and in 3 days time, my ex came apologizing just as he told me. Today we both live together and we are even more in love than how we use to be before he left. Contact the Great Dr Kumar for your own help. You can contact him on: drkumartemple@yahoo.com and his website is:

Re: “The apostle

This is wonderful! because we want God's kingdom to be a reality on the earth, Jesus Christ came to destroy the adversary works and he did it; so today as Christian we have been mandated by God through the finish works of Christ, to destroy demonic power in every culture and make all the nation the disciple of Jesus Christ for the glory of God; so thank you apostle Robert and all others Christian leaders who work in that way, I want to say that we are supporting this idea and we encourage you to go forward, I personally will pray for you and I also declare a spiritual warfare against God's purpose in my culture and every demonic power that will try to stand against God's kingdom on the earth will be broken down in Jesus Christ's name because he(Jesus) gave his life and he paid the prize so the victory has been won. thank you once again, God, bless you abundantly! we love you in the love of Christ.

Re: “El Paso County inmates say new jail contractor serves inadequate food

I seriously doubt that the county contracted for inadequate amounts of inedible food. What I find most interesting is that the bloggers who routinely find evidence of corruption in every government transaction, are not demanding a full accounting of how our tax money is being spent or accusing any county official of receiving kickbacks from the deal. Instead, they are happy to be ripped off, just as long as the prison inmates suffer from the cruel, if not so unusual, punishment.

In another thread in this same issue of the Indy, and on this same blog, is a report of a study conducted in prisons with real inmates that indicates a link between poor diet and violence. Unless you were being sarcastic, you indicated in the comments section that you agreed with that finding, Mr. Tannim, before you wrote your comment for this piece. Somehow, you failed to put the two reports together.

The cost of hiring extra guards to handle violent prisoners far outweighs the cost of a nutritious diet. And, if you are interested in reforming prisoners, providing a good diet is a good start.

Re: “El Paso County inmates say new jail contractor serves inadequate food

They're inmates, which means that they are not deserving of what they consider to be "good food". If they wanted good food, they they shouldn't have landed their butts in jail in the first place.

They ought to be lucky that they aren't getting Hawkeye Pierce's "river of liver and ocean of fish." Or Soylent Green.
