Re: “Gov. Polis signs hospital transparency bill

Wow, so my hospital bill was $3,000+; and the hospital would not even spot me the $183 my insurance would not cover?

No wonder so many have so little respect for corporate health care. Or local hospitals.

Lady on the phone was like I was trying to steal something by even asking for a write off; or a reduction - "I've never heard of that before". "Oh, you need to write your insurance about that" Yeah; after paying 3K; right. Sure. So much respect for UC Health. Pfff.

What a sham. If I was homeless, illegal; or broke; this would all be free. Oh, you have a job, and insurance? Yeah; we want the full amount. Load. Of. Krap.

Re: “Questions, emotions linger after cyclist killed

I'll be on the side walk; with no apologies.

Respectfully; this, even on a street that is supposed to be slower; and more residential like Weber, will be a first cite if I am ever speaking in a formal matter about being ticketed for riding on the sidewalk.

My family, friends, coworkers, and myself value my life much, much more than some ridiculouse [sic] ticket for being on a sidewalk.

Re: “Jill Gaebler apologizes for comment at bike lane debate

You want Austin? Take a read on all the bonkers taxes first, before you move there. Enjoy the gridlock, crime, flailing schools, pollution, and crowds.

Re: “El Paso County jail hits new record with 1,880 inmates

Gawrsh. Why are these people in jail? Oh. They did really, really bad things. Because to actually go to jail in the year 2019; you almost have to work hard at being bad.
To be there for more than a week; wow. CTFD and avoid bad stuff.

Re: “Reader: Shut Drake down as soon as possible

...And wait for the first calm, dreary sunless winter day (or night - good luck with the solar when it is 3AM); and light a candle (for heat - all 50 watts of it); and think upon Drake; long ago shut down by unknowing, uneducated, uninformed fools; all of whom will then be loudly wondering ...
Why did the cost of running the AC or heater just double when Drake was shut down?

The Yellow Vest protests in France? The working people that are bearing the brunt of excessive environmental actions and "progress"? Yes, that would be the majority of the OMG crowd when Drake is shut down. OMG; why is power so expensive? We just got the main power plant shut down; and OMG; now power is unaffordable! Oh noes!

Next we still all the windmills due to the birds being hit by the blades.
Then we stop the new solar fields due to the super-heating caused by the panels, and the destruction of natural habitat for the 1,000s of acres needed for the panels.
And tear down the hydraulic energy generating dams that harm the Salmon migration.

So. With no forms of energy available; because of the harm being done; most of humanity will slowly cease to exist; and

Good luck powering the espresso machine with treadmill generated energy.

Re: “El Paso County inmate's death: family files notice of claim

Hmmm. Apparently; swallowing a bag of meth is not healthy.
