    I find stuff that I want to purchase online, but the only way I buy it, is if they can sell it to me in person, bought with cash.
    So, like craigslist and other online postings?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I'm still not sure how it happened, but I just don't take any chances, anymore.

    Yeah and I'll look on various websites, like Cabella's and Bass Pro Shop. Last week, I got the, "online", price for a boat motor, but I went get it and paid green-backs for it.

    I am just saying, despite your horror story rhetoric, that we should have the players compete on a level playing field. So how 'bout it? Do away with sales tax altogether?
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    Durbin would, see how him and Governor Quinn's Amazon tax has worked out for Illinois, it's resulted in online retailers dropping Illinois from their retail...just what we need it more taxes, some people have thicker skulls than it looks.
