The Faux Battle Over Online Sales Taxes
Posted on Wednesday, May 08, 2013 2:03:16 PM by redgolum
now the battle is joined.
The Senate has passed, sending to The House, a bill that would impose a requirement that online merchants submit to state tax collection in states where they have no physical presence.
To try to make this more palatable they are exempting businesses with less than $1 million in annual sales, but this doesn’t matter when you get down to brass tacks.

Taped on Dec 11, 1967 (New York City, NY)
Guest: Saul David Alinsky
Amazon currently monopolizes e-book sales, controlling 60 percent of the market. And, like a jealous lover, Obama is suing Amazon’s competitors in order to further strengthen her e-book monopoly. Obama may be faithful to his wife, but he is breaking his vow to the American people to defend the Constitution. He is openly abusing his executive powers and giving preferential treatment to Amazon—hoping to curry favor with consumers and ensure his reelection in November.
Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, announced on April 11, 2012 that the Department of Justice is suing Apple and five major book publishers on charges that they violated anti-trust laws by conspiring to raise the price of e-books.

But it appears it can be financially beneficial.
On Wednesday, sales “Scorpions for Breakfast” were tepid. Amazon.com, where Gov. Jan Brewer has been marketing her political screed on border security, federalism and the “liberal media,” reported that sales ranked it No. 343,222 of all the titles on its list.
Pea coats are the #1 seller in Amazon apparel. A sign of the times.

I wore these in the 1970s during Nixon& Carter. These were out of fashion for years but are making a comeback. They are drab and dark. To me they reflect an awful economy for young people who wear these. Do the occupy Wall Street kids wear them? I would think so.

The days of skirting around having to pay retail sales tax by shopping online may be coming to a close—and Amazon, of all companies, is supporting the effort.
Amazon.com: Customer Reviews: Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination That Changed America Forever
Having read quite a few books on Lincoln including most recently, David Herbert Donald‘s masterful biography, I found this tome lacking. Bill should stick to autobiography and political punditry. He will bring people to the subject that haven’t been there before, and that’s all good. But, Lincoln has been covered and covered, and if you’re going to write about him, you should have something really new to impart – if there is anything left to be said at all.
Today we released a new report on local sales taxes, which updates a study we published in February. The new report updates the state and local sales tax rates across the country and ranks each state on its combined state rate and average local rate……………

5.0 out of 5 stars I STRONGLY RECOMMEND LINCOLN’S MARXISTS!, August 24, 2011
I STRONGLY RECOMMEND LINCOLN’S MARXISTS-(the book, not the people!)
Here’s a book I wish every person still capable of independent thinking would read:
LINCOLN’S MARXISTS is a book difficult to stop reading–impossible to cease thinking about.
The so-called “Main Street Fairness Act” attempts to force online retailers that aren’t based in the state to collect sales tax if they use in-state advertisers or other affiliates. The measure is a legally dubious run-around of current U.S. Supreme Court law under Quill v. North Dakota, which only permits a state to force a company to collect tax if they have a physical presence.
One of the primary characters in Glenn Beck’s New York Times number one bestselling novel The Overton Window is blatantly a caricature of our own Alex Jones, according to a reader who sent us his review of the book. Jones is fictionalized as “Daniel Baily,” the patriot movement leader who tries to prevent the U.S. government from carrying out a false flag terror attack on Los Angeles.
Beck describes his book as a work of “faction,” fiction based on facts, and accordingly many of the characters in the novel are people plucked from the real world with only their names changed.The novel’s plot centers around an evil public relations firm that works with Homeland Security and the CIA to collapse America from within. “An unprecedented attack on U.S. soil shakes the country to the core and puts into motion a frightening plan, decades in the making, to transform America and demonize all those who stand in the way.
