Re: Citizens from 15 states have filed petitions to secede from the United States
After going back and re-reading some of these posts, I didn't know that many of you were located outside of the U.S. I mean I knew of several of you, like Num and Mal, but the rest, not so much. Pretty cool little tidbit of info imo.
I just found out from my wife, that her great-grandfather is going to have to pay $15,000 in property taxes for a home valued at $150k in St. Petersburg, FL. His home in Maine, estimated same value... only $5,500 in property taxes (last year's figures). And for those that don't know, that's a real small house in FL by their financial standards (I think he said roughly 950 sq. ft).
