Yes!
Pet projects such as:
education
roads

P.S. The"government" is you. You (collectively) elect representatives.

I'd probably categorize prisons as an unnecessary pet peeve project given how many billions we've wasted locking up people for years smoking a joint. When can I get freed up from my taxes going toward these boondoogles of law enforcement?

Nope, the war on drugs is another government wasted enforcement that's unnecessary and crowds the jails with more serious crimes such as homicides that fit for sentencing.

When the bubble gets too big, it will burst. As to when the bubble gets big enough, who knows? I'll pay a million dollars to whoever can tell me the precise time; I could make millions then to make up for it.

But what I can tell is that the housing landscape will become much different after 2 years. A beer says rent will stabilize by the end of 2015. Everyone (limited to the first 5 to respond) is welcome to this bet.
Deadline to get in on this bet is end of May 2015.

Yep.. Denver is definitely affordable compared to Los Angeles where I am. I can't get a decent studio for less than 900. I was in Denver a few weeks ago looking at apartments and saw places where I could get a one bedroom for around $900, and in pretty nice areas. As pricey as places are becoming, I believe quality of life is better in Denver than here in L.A.

Back on topic, affordability in SW Denver is rapidly slipping away. Newcomers to the city correctly find Athmar Park quite nice: Denver's forgotten Real Estate corner heats up - The Denver Post

Also, there are no cheap condos anywhere.

Depends on what you define as a "cheap condo." I see several right around 120k in good neighborhoods, which is 1/2 to 1/3 of the price of comparable units here in LA. $500/mo mortgage? How is that not affordable?

6470 S Dayton St APT K09, Englewood, CO 80111 is For Sale | Zillow

1250 Golden Cir APT 111, Golden, CO 80401 is For Sale | Zillow

7481 E 26th Ave # F, Denver, CO 80238 is For Sale | Zillow

3121 S Tamarac Dr APT K203, Denver, CO 80231 is For Sale | Zillow

None of these are trendy walkable places right downtown, but if you need a cheap comfortable place in a decent area, these look pretty doable to me.
