Mobile Homes: The Solution to Government Malfeasance?

An unfortunate solution to the draconian property tax laws around the world today:

James Burns, a Royal Air Force veteran and retired California attorney, has a novel reason for his living in a mobile home in a Hurricane-prone region of the United States according to Allan G. Breed, a writer with the Associated Press.

"He says he saw no point in paying exorbitant property taxes to 'prop up a corrupt government' when he could live comfortably in a trailer.

'That means I can spend all the rest on riotous living,' the 74-year-old Brit said with an impish grin."

Unfortunately for many other elderly folk, he didn't quite get into what exactly he meant by "riotous living" in his 70's.
