    worker-bee consumers.  Bad move for Democrats.

    Main street businesses in most rural communities already pretty much "own" those towns.  Good customer service will keep folks shopping at home.

    Online sales tax will drain money from consumers pockets that might otherwise be spent on food, medicine, clothes, shoes.

      are having one helluva time staying open (except for a couple of family owned restaurants that have been around for decades)

      I believe the implementation of the sales tax on online merchandisers will be good for my town.

      We shall see.

      Besides, anything the illustrious u.s. house of representative hates, I'm probably going to be crazy about.
