Everybody seems to be upset about the value of our property, and therefore our taxes, are going up, up, UP!

My car and house insurance went up as well. Wake up, people! I enjoyed getting my stimulus check and spent most of it wisely, but money doesn’t come to you from anywhere. If the government gives you money for FREE, the value of a dollar is bound to go down, down, down.

I am no economist, and maybe I'm stupid; but I suspect that the value of our property is not going up, the value of our dollar is going down.
