Rob of the Say Anything blog based in North Dakota, where he told how he booted the Minot city tax assessor off his property:
So I asked my wife to put me on the phone with the gentleman from the City of Minot. He got on the phone and said that he wanted to check through my house to see if my property taxes needed to be raised. I told him I wasn’t comfortable with him going through my house, and asked him why the City of Minot needs more property taxes. After all, didn’t we just get $300 million in property tax relief from the state legislature?
He told me that the state has actually been cutting spending (we’ve had a 54 percent increase in general fund spending over the last four years!) and that’s why the city needs to tax more/spend more.
My response to him was to say that he could remove himself from my property and assess my home’s value from the street.

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
