    What is one program? Where does this program come from? Does it automatically update the constant changes in sakes taxes? Does it "collect" any add-on taxes such as city, county, special bonds etc. If so, who maintains this system?

    Yes, it reveals something but I'm not sure what exactly that is.

    I hadn't thought about the gun connection. Now that you point it out, I suspect it looms large in the rightwing bizarroworld of no-new-taxes.

    Could this be ANOTHER plot by Obama to deny tea partiers their sacred taxfree Glocks?

    The program to calculate the sales tax based on where the product is being delivered. It's one program, and there are several companies who are already offering the program to vendors on the internet.

    Yes, it automatically updates it's database to reflect changes in a states sales tax and it collects all applicable state and local sales taxes.

    The program is maintained by the corporation that provides the software

    it reveals that the right doesn't want to pay taxes, no matter how legitimate they are, while the left recognizes that sales taxes are a valid and constitutional form of taxation

    Are you sure? Many things are cheaper online.

    Being poor may only mean low income, not stupidity. Or am I wrong?

    Online shopping requires a computer and a credit card.

    Not saying that no poor person has both, but I suspect it's not as common as it is at higher incomes.
