    Kentucky Governor Blames Video Games for Florida School Shooting

    So we'll use Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine reservists. The big guy can propose this as a HUGE change in school safety and the Fed budget can just borrow a little more. See? so easy. Nobody took anybody's guns and the kids are overseen by a 'merican with a battle rifle. Hell, even I feel...

    Connecticut DRS Moves to Collect Back-Taxes on Newegg Customers

    In my opinion Newegg brought this on themselves. They could have hired a few accounting serfs to apply sales tax as appropriate, but they made a business bet that the Internet would be tax free forever because bill's like this: https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/s743 keep failing and...

    Connecticut DRS Moves to Collect Back-Taxes on Newegg Customers

    I get the feeling you have never been involved in business to business transactions. This is routine on that level. Transactions are recorded, vendors Fed tax ID codes are documented, and all this is reviewable by your local state auditors. "Who the fuck is some state official demanding the...

    You guys understand these taxes aren't just going to your state, they drill down to your community. So if you don't mind cutting back on the police or firemen or schools, pleez feel free to evade your local taxes. Ha, Blue states pay Federal taxes, Red states spend it.

    Connecticut DRS Moves to Collect Back-Taxes on Newegg Customers

    this won't be the popular comment, but Newegg shot itself in the foot. An astounding number of companies that aren't internet business platforms understand tax law and sold enough products in other states to know to just collect the taxes. Your only getting around paying sales tax if you live...
