Comments: Stirring the Pot

Not wrong. Though I would suggest that they also use Amazon services and purchase their own kit vs using a free one. Surely the children are worth the $150 asked. Saving the free ones for those who can least afford them.
Just be sure you yourself have your protective gear available from the slings and arrows!

Or you could just suggest that they read the entire Greeley Trib article:

"There is a limit of one monitor per household, and county officials will give them out as long as there is demand."

Now, if they are actually asking for more than one monitor per household, tell them to pound (fracking) sand.

And while we're on the subject, I wonder if BoCo is offering these to residents on the Boulder side of the county line?

Boulder clearly doesn't care that <remy_voice>people will die!</remy_voice>

The complaint is that their are not sufficient units for the number of households that want exactly one. (Innumeracy is more rampant than appreciated.)

Thanks, but I don't think I'll doe on this hill. I feel I should make a stand against the anti-extractors, but it should be on property rights, not misplaced risk.

On that end I was working on:

"What about the majority? Well, a majority of your neighbors would like to your home razed and replaced with a Broncos Cheerleaders' training facility. But we don't put that up for a vote because you have been paying your mortgage and taxes. These mineral rights predate you, so the owners are not bound to win an election to exercise them."

Better? Worse?

Not sufficient units *where* for the number of households that want one? On Earth? Weld County has spent $1,901 to purchase monitors "to date." There is no cap on available units other than - "as long as there is demand."

Or is the Trib wrong?

On your "majority" argument, it's way too complicated. Modern suburbanites expect everything, for nothing, immediately and always. Capiche?

You want to wait until a unit becomes available? When your house is about to explode? Have you no children?
