Could you live on about 300 dollars a week?

I get by on less than that.

I could reduce that further if the local shakedown/protection racket would reduce the property taxes.

That was exactly the point, by the way. From Henry George’s Single Tax to the income tax to counterfeiting (the Fed) to the death tax, gubmint has, especially since the progressive era, deliberately attempted to make it impossible for you to support yourself. Nevermind their reasons, which I never understand anyway. They don’t like “unearned income,” they wanna head off plutocrats from stealing democracy, poverty in the midst of plenty is morally anathematic, we gotta spread the wealth around, blah, blah, blah. Mostly it’s because they live to spend money, and you can only find it where it is.

The result is very little culture and sheeplike people. But, hey, at least we have McDonalds and gang wars.

Boomers have never known hard time - good thing they are teaching us!
