My state (Colorado) is an at-will-employer. For the first time ever when
I hired on here, they made me sign a form that should have been at 18
pts, bolded, and all-caps. It stated (paraphrased): "just as you can up
and quit for no good reason on a moment's notice, we can fire your butt
for any and no good reason on a moment's notice."

This is legal? Please explain this concept "at-will" and how it allows an employer to abridge your rights.
