Hang on -- we've got a library district, plus the one in the nearest city will allow us to sign on even though we're not in district, and our property taxes are under a thousand a year. Now, granting that our house is pretty slummy, what on earth are you getting for your tax money! Does it go to schools and EMT service? Is your teacher/child ratio 1:3?! Do the ambulance drivers all have PHDs?!
