Wow! Liberal ingenuity at work.
Yup....their brilliancy knows no bounds..JUST what California needed!
But...I thought amazon was soooooo Socially conscious, so Progressive...guess not when it comes to money.
Reminds me of Bill Gates who was a RUTHLESS take no prisoners Capitalist Pig until he had made his billions.
Perfect demonstration of the concept of a “Zero Sum Game” - the Equalization Board was smoking some serious weed when they made their revenue projection.
Brown and his merry band strike again.
“The state Board of Equalization says...”
That name and what it implies sounds like it is straight out of Atlas Shrugged.
If just 1% of the Amazon affiliates leave, that’d be 250 fewer people minimum doing business there. Suck on it, Brown. I hope it is more. Starve these commies.
Those 25,000 affiliates won’t be spending much money in kali-fornia,without an income, will they?
I feel sorry for all of them except any obozo/moonbeam supporters.
Place a tax on something — even threaten to place a tax on something — and you will get less of it. These (former) Amazon vendors are being asked to irritate their customers and do the paperwork for no compensation from Governor Moonbeam. You’d think somehow California politicians would have learned that they are the problem and just get out of the way.
I have friends in New York state who will drive thirty miles or more just to buy gasoline in New Jersey where the gas taxes are much lower. It may be a break-even or worse for them but I understand their reasoning.
Choke that greedy evil rich goose! Get those golden eggs!
The fedgov ruins everything it touches.
Using the coercion of the state to change the spending behavior of consumers is like tying two drunks together to walk in a straight line.
California is gone, it’s not even a part of the United states anymore. I mean let’s face it; It’s been conquered by Mexico and therefore Pelosi shoud be expelled from Congresss as well as all future elections for POTUS.
If you still vote Democrat and still believe in the “One”,...then you deserve a Darwin award.
State/National suicide by stupidity.
Atlas <edit> Amazon Shrugged </edit>
How long before a class action lawsuit against Amazon is filed on behalf of the former CA affiliates?
And, magically, the new budget becomes UNBALANCED and everybody gets paid!
Sure hope NewEgg opens a Texas office :-(
What's weird is that he's starting to argue like a liberal, talking over the other person, making snide little personal attacks and then making the big lie and just shrugging it off.
Either his personal life is in shambles, his kid has twisted off or he needs acting jobs is the only way I can figure out what happened to this guy.
To some of us Orwell's books were warnings. To others they were blueprints.
