I saw a funny newspaper headline the other day… Something to the effect of: Michigan loses $430 million in revenue because of online sales.

I had a hearty chuckle. Here’s the other way to write that headline:

Michigan consumers are so tired of getting soaked every time they turn around, be it the gas tax, income tax, sales tax or property tax (we get hammered with all of them – and we’re not even talking about Federal taxes) that they’re turning to the internet to save a measly six percent.

Don’t ever think that the papers aren’t ass deep in the politics business. Only a political hack would write that Michigan is losing money.

    Same over here in Australia. They should stop whining and get competitive as the customer is always right.
