The Rio Grande Foundation could have published a second list, in inverse order, of cities that are desirable to live in...

Anyway, the publisher, Paul Gessing, is busy these days acting as a front man, registering lots of online schools for the big players (who can't directly do this) in the education field. Yep, nothing like being a libertarian and then setting himself to live off the government tit....

Yeah, that Rio Grande Foundation "study" is ridiculous.  Duh.  Carlsbad has lower taxes.  BECAUSE IT HAS FEWER SERVICES TO PAY FOR.  Sorry to shout, but come on.

Well, once The Big One hits (whether that's an earthquake, drought, an A-bomb, or some other catastrophic event that puts in a nail in the coffin of civilization) and plunges the world into a post-apocalyptic wasteland, you can bet that the anarchist society that rises from the rubble of the former Duke City will have rock-bottom taxes.

From Wiki:  "..the fourth world will also have reached the end of its 13th b'ak'tun, or Mayan date 13.0.0.0.0, on 21 December 2012, formally called "4-Ajau, God 9 of the Night, 3-Kank’in, Year Bearer 1-Kaban"  So, there will be no taxes from that day forward, except for the tribute given to the high priest on the full moon of every month (so you don't get your head cut off).
