Yay! California Governor Moonbeam is finally coming for your Amazon.com sales tax dollars!
As I sipped my peaceful Saturday morning coffee, I noted that the San Diego press is parroting the statist talking point that the Amazon.com tax is "going to create jobs" because Amazon.com is planning on building several distribution hubs across the state.
The idiots in San Diego's local press are also parroting the socialist Sac-town Dems in saying that the new internet tax (Amazon.com tax) will "help" local Mom-and-Pop retailers. For example...
Just a few of the individuals that have no vote, voice or say in any way whatsoever in the Once Golden State:
Business Owners (here's why).
Car owners and commuters (everyone).
Those few lucky enough to earn a paycheck.
Individuals not part of a "protected" class (even though, ludicrously, CA is minority-majority).
Individuals who run the show here:
Poor people paid to stay poor.
Wacko pagan environmentalists nutjobs.
Socialists and varying collectivists of all stripes.
And the list goes on...
You get the picture; liberals, progressives-statists, collectivists, socialists -- whatever you want to call them -- eventually destroy everything they touch. California is no exception.
The question remains: does America even care? Do the American people want a California future? Do they even have a choice, still?
