In Montana you just shoot the tax collector and then buy the cops off with with meth and the mineral rights for your property.

I was completely wrong. From what I've read since, all states take into account the dwelling or "improvements."

Way too big to post, unreadable if downsized enough...

The War On Drugs

Very interesting, but, there are no given sources.

Another reason to annex Mexico. We're losing the illegal drug industry to those bastards south of the border. They took our jobs!

Interesting information - how we spend money now vs. 1949. From here:

Absolutely. Everyone ate real food then. It was like eating an exclusively organic, grass-fed diet, for everyone, because that was the only thing that existed. Our grocery bill isn't quite 40% of our income, but it's close.

Google search or an article?!?!?! Damn if I can remember now.

ETA ... I remembered IM's trick with the "save as" and looked it up..
Link here

I didn't get it there, but that is the apparent original location.

While the press cheers on every sign of private sector job creation, little attention is being paid to public sector job destruction.
As the Economic Policy Institute reports, while there has been an increase of some 2.8 million private sector jobs since June 2009,
public sector employment (federal, state, and local governments combined) has actually fallen by approximately 600,000.
This is a very unusual development as the figure below reveals.

According to the Economic Policy Institute, if the percentage growth of public sector employment in this recovery
had followed past recovery trends, we would have an additional 1.2 million public sector jobs and some 500,000 additional private sector jobs. A separate reason for concern about this trend is that lost public sector jobs generally means a decline in the services
that we need to sustain our communities. The withering away of our public sector during a period of expansion should worry us all.
