Some recent examples:

*A Florida boat company was hit with a $376,000 tax bill from Michigan, despite the fact the company doesn't have any offices in that state. And the tax bill was even $100,000 higher than the total business that company did in Michigan.

*A Wisconsin trucking company was billed $1,300 - later reduced to $980 - by Nebraska just because its trucks drove through the state.

*New Jersey stopped a truck from Virginia and refused to release it unless the company paid $150,000.

*A California-based food company faced $180,000 from seven years of back taxes in Washington state, despite the fact it only had a single truck visit that state over the years.

These are no worse than the Federal government that reserves the right to tax Ex-American citizen for 10 years after they give up their citizenship

We moved away from California in 2009 but that didn’t stop the California Franchise Tax Board from sending armed agents to our home in Wyoming to try to collect taxes for 2010 and 2011. The Park County Sheriff’s department told them to get lost for us and we haven’t seen them since.

I imagine we’ll see more of this as the Obama Depression gets worse and worse.

I just now bought something online for $128 with no sales taxes and no delivery charges.

The same item locally was $750.

What is wrong with that?

Buy now, what you’ll need during the next ten years or so. After that, don’t buy anything for several years.

Eventually, cash transactions will be forbidden. Only through plastic can the rulers track our transactions for taxing purposes.

"These new taxes are taking aim at everything from trucks crossing state borders to sales and communications from out-of-state firms. And that long arm of taxation is creating a howl in the business community."

This kind of thing is precisely what the original Constitutional power to regulate interstate commerce was included to prevent.

Keep seizing out of state trucks, and they will eventually find that no one will deliver their food and other goods.

So where is the interstate commerce clause when it actually applies?
