Re: “Flying W Ranch fencing draws protests

I want to put a 10' fence around my place too. Because of deer and other wildlife that eat my trees.
Oh; I don't have the $$$ omph behind my request?

$orry regular taxpayer; no 10' fence for you!

What the Hell is happening to our city? Are we really trying that hard to become Denver Jr?

Re: “Firefighters compete for new ambulance contract

Don't forget - that friendly ambulance ride is around Five Grand. $$$.

Oh yes; you will be expected to pay for it.

People are using Uber, Lyft, and Cabs for stuff like broken arms or bad cuts.

Why? $25 compared to $5,000? Does that bad burn really need a full on ambulance ride? $$$$eriously, Google the ambulance bills.

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.
