Don’t most local press stories usually say a $200,000 home?
…the bill on a $100,000 home would be $632.50 — $2.50 less than this year…
…An average water user’s bill will increase by $2.05 a month,
from $34.70 per month to $36.75, or a little less than 6 percent….
Greensboro News and Record, June 15, 2010
A $200,000 home = $5.00 per year less
A $50 monthly water bill = $36 per year more
= My taxes just went up about $31

A government big enough to give you everything you want
is strong enough to take everything you have
Where there's sacrifice
there's someone collecting the sacrificial offerings
The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters
and intends to be the master
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor
