I live in Vegas without a car. I walk to the grocery store about two times weekly. I got a Timbuk2 Tuck 20L backpack that is basically a very large grocery bag. It is wide enough to hold two gallons of milk side-by-side and tall enough to hold about five bags of groceries. The top can be left open to hold more items.

The bus system is very good here if you stick to central Las Vegas. I live close enough to walk to everything I need (bank, doctor, gym, dollar store, grocery store, CVS, mall, etc).

I like fresh vegetables too and only need to go weekly. Bread I keep in the freezer because I eat it so rarely. Makes it last longer.

I don't like week old vegetables. Much better if they are a couple days old or less.

Frozen bread defrosted doesn't taste as good. Especially if it's a baguette, ciabatta, or bagel.

If you rent a 300k house for 1500 a month, that’s 9 grand in new taxes for the property owner. That’s 750 a month that will most likely be added to rent making that 1500 go to 2250.
It could be worse, you could be in California
Why do you keep putting this 3% federal property tax out there? Lawmakers can't fathom the blowback from adding a penny to the gas tax, how are they going to handle voter anger at a 3% property tax??? Just stop with the nonsense, its not happening.

It's seriously ill-intentioned misinformation, I agree.

I had a customer tell me yesterday that his customers have stopped ordering building materials because of this phantom 3% tax. His co-worker told me that business was booming.

Would it even be constitutional? The income tax required a constitutional amendment (16th, ratified in 1913).
