That's a myth. It's almost always perpetuated by those making asinine claims. It's simple, you make an absurd claim and then when the reasonable people show up, you simply attack them for being "too extreme".
Go call a freelance software developer and pay them, or do it yourself.
It's not paranoia when, as this article proves, the government really is out to get you.
Looks like we found the hippie.
Bus: Doesn't exist many places. If it does, there may not be a bus stop within walking distance of your house, place of work, or a food store.
Taxi: Too expensive. Try taking the taxi to work every day and you'll go fucking broke in a month.
Train: (I think you mean subway). There are two places in the USA that even have those. One is Washington DC, the other is New York. The rest of the country has less subway rail *combined* than either one of those towns alone.
Plane: We're talking about commuting here. And good luck getting on a plane nowadays as an adult without a license.
Walk: Too far. We just covered this.
Bike: See above. Also, see lack of bike lanes and winter months where snow precludes bike riding.
Uber: Illegal and uninsured service. This is a non-starter.
Ride from a friend: You have friends willing to chauffeur you all over the place? Yeah, neither does anyone else.
Moped: Requires a license, genius.
