    is that your internal discipline SUCKS? How typical.

    •  No! They have some beautiful architecture (8+ / 0-)

      and lots of lab facilities. Instead set up a garrison fence around the place. Teach them those fundies do NOT follow the Constitution, and why. They are like the moonies. They are trying to take over. They are the enemy.

      Do I sound like I've had too much clonazepam? Because I have. I feel kinda woo woo.

      You've got that bass-ackwards, BlackSheep1.

      It was the USAFA who brought the wackjob Dominionist "Christians" to Colorado Springs, not the other way around. I know this because I and mine live there. We were in the Springs before the fundie-wacko loonies.

      I know this because it got really nasty starting in my high-school years (I graduated in 1976.)

      Focus on the Family's multi-million dollar campus is less than 2 miles from the USAFA fenceline. This is no accident!

        James Dobson can FOAD -- can't happen fast enough -- and take his dipwad hatefulness with him.

        The Academy's not the cause of this crap, but it's long past time we disengaged the propinquity it's taking advantage of in infiltrating our forces.

          Agreed wholeheartedly.

          And he can take all the same, along with all his co-cultists, somewhere else besides Colorado Springs, Colorado.

          My city. I and mine were here first (paternal great-grandfather c. 1880, mother's family 1930s - 1940s).

          The Academy's not the cause of this crap, but it's long past time we disengaged the propinquity it's taking advantage of in infiltrating our forces.
          The USAFA itself is only another victim. The same cadre of irresponsible Dominion-cultist AF officers are responsible for all this wrongdoing. They corrupt the Academy's culture while there, and after retirement, proceed to corrupt Colorado Springs' civil and economic culture in the same ways.

          But moving the USAFA from Colorado Springs won't help. If it moves, and no other reforms are undertaken, the problem will relocate to wherever it does. On the other hand, curing the disease our Diarist has done a large public service in documenting could be easily done with the USAFA in situ -- and it would be a healthy change for both the USAFA and the city it borders, as well.
