Ponder This:

Real public servants are free enterprising individuals who, inspired, embrace challenge, take risks, and create, sometimes big, and often, they create jobs in the process, all out of their ideas, and self initiative...

My Opinion on The Buzz: Poll mixed on voter views of online 'Amazon tax' & CalWatchDog's Published Smoking Gun Report on Redistricting Commissioner Dr. Gabino Aguirre and his CAUSE.

The small time merchants who've lost a significant income stream when the employment prospects in CA only get darker, were already responsible for paying the taxes, on their own.
Amazon as a company, operated in the red for years and years, and for a state, even full-of-itself-California, to dictate to a company how they must act as the tax cop for the State Govt is tyrannical.

A rumor I heard at a recent Word Press blog camp I recently attended told of many individuals who were incorporating in Nevada to get around the law. Meanwhile the State is now out the income tax they were actually collecting from all those law abiding citizens who made an income in the high unemployment State of CA, and who paid their taxes on their income, as was the working model.

California is broke and we now have a higher unemployment rate than Nevada and our Legislators just slashed a major revenue stream because they are reactionary toward small business private enterprise, the job cow of the job market--providing well over 80 percent of the jobs when the economy is healthy. The small business economy is still the super majority of jobs provider, but the CA State Legislators beg one to assume they are innumerate or deliberate, or morally bankrupt, or for sale to the highest bidder.

Reminding me of while Rome burned, Republican authoritarian-leaning State Senator Tom Berryhill has co-authored a bad bill totalitarian and otherwise useless, in the name of protecting a dead child while Californians face a worsening unemployment situation and breakdown of cities on account of a fiscal disaster, as a result of the cost of government and the assault on private job producing companies.

Steve Chapman at Reason wrote this on Berryhill's co-authored bill, before Barryhill and his co-author, also Republican, Paul Cook, announced their co-authored bill for "Caylee's Law."

CRP Chairman, Tom Del Beccaro gets tough around the redistricting and the one commissioner who has a strong connection with CAUSE Central Coast Alliance United for A Sustainable Economy. The chart at CalWatchDog is a smoking gun.

I digress. Amazon tax stupid or reckless.

Botched Paramilitary Police Raids: An Epidemic of "Isolated Incidents"

"If a widespread pattern of [knock-and-announce] violations were shown . . . there would be reason for grave concern." —Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, in Hudson v. Michigan, June 15, 2006. An interactive map of botched SWAT and paramilitary police raids, released in conjunction with the Cato policy paper "Overkill: The Rise of Paramilitary Police Raids," by Radley Balko.

Death of an innocent. Death or injury of a police officer. Death of a nonviolent offender.
Raid on an innocent suspect. Other examples of paramilitary police excess. Unnecessary raids on doctors and sick people.
The proliferation of SWAT teams, police militarization, and the Drug War have given rise to a dramatic increase in the number of "no-knock" or "quick-knock" raids on suspected drug offenders. Because these raids are often conducted based on tips from notoriously unreliable confidential informants, police sometimes conduct SWAT-style raids on the wrong home, or on the homes of nonviolent, misdemeanor drug users. Such highly-volatile, overly confrontational tactics are bad enough when no one is hurt -- it's difficult to imagine the terror an innocent suspect or family faces when a SWAT team mistakenly breaks down their door in the middle of the night. But even more disturbing are the number of times such "wrong door" raids unnecessarily lead to the injury or death of suspects, bystanders, and police officers. Defenders of SWAT teams and paramilitary tactics say such incidents are isolated and rare. The map above aims to refute that notion.
