    How much time does it take to click a button? How is this a burden?
    I am concluding that you have never done bookkeeping or accounting for a business.

    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Is this really so hard to understand?
    Correct. Your post is worded more clearly

    Except that the commerce clause only deals in trade disputes. The federal government has no power to act on business. Yes, I realize the SC says otherwise, but I'm not going to humor nonsense. Are you?

    Btw, does anyone want to tell where the words "Interstate commerce" happen to be? Far to long I have been looking for those words in the commerce clause and I have yet to find them.

    And this is a trade dispute. Sales are a form of trade.

    There is no issues between the states being arising here. The situation involves a state that wants businesses from another state to collect taxes for them from consumers from their state. The other state where the business is located is not involved in the transaction nor the dispute.

    Sure there is. Simply saying "Is not! Is not!" is a fail on your part

    No, the other state is not involved nor is the issue with the state. You're wrong.

    Of course not. The way to interpret the Constitution is to have some guy on a political forum decide, not the Supreme Court.

    Jesus.

    I'm just going by the intent of the clause. The commerce clause was to solve the problem of trade disputes between the listed members. It was not to control commerce nor was it to regulate business, or the behavior of people.

    well can congress, create legislation which, gives ,grants, bestows something on to the states?....like power, authority, permission.

    becuase i dont know, they can do that in the constitution.

    congress does not have any power either to delegate away any authority they have under the constitution.
