Re: [RANT] Amazon sales tax comes to Connecticut ...

This is why Amazon is supporting a nationwide Internet sales tax: so that they only have to deal with one government agency instead of hundreds (state, local, city, county, etc). CT is easy, no local/city sales taxes...and it's no skin off their teeth (people will still buy online, "brick-and-mortar, Main Street, Mom-and-Pop" won't see any more business).

I notice a lot of platitudes, but no details what "investment in Connecticut" and "creating hundreds of jobs" means. Smells like meaningless BS double-talk to me...what "facility" are they talking about?

Which "we" should have begun working on at least 13 years ago,
but then again "we" can't even manage our own federal budget
beyond nah nah boo boo you didn't vote for my _____________
so it's another x years of 0 progress.

A bit unsettling to live in a country that accomplished more in shorter time frames 3 and 4 hundred years ago, when communications moved at the speed of horse.
