in my mail this morning:

For well over a decade, the Amazon Associates Program has worked with thousands of California residents. Unfortunately, a potential new law that may be signed by Governor Brown compels us to terminate this program for California-based participants. It specifically imposes the collection of taxes from consumers on sales by online retailers - including but not limited to those referred by California-based marketing affiliates like you - even if those retailers have no physical presence in the state.


California- a third world state run by a moonbeam.

I think you mean companies like Amazon that don't want to pay their fair share are turning California into a 3rd world state.

And that's exactly why we are in the condition we are. Total denial, tax and spend, a liberal state drowning in debt... and you blame the lack of taxing out of state commerce. At least you are consistent Majin.\

Was that supposed to make me feel something? Hell, I'll be eating popcorn and watching the state sink from the porch, thanks. Better to be on the shore than in the boat.
