’s Revolt Seems Taxing –Michelson

That may be true, Mr. Pressley, but it’s unfair to brick-and-mortar print shops in California that must charge state sales tax. A lower-cost, nearby state like Nevada might have been a better locale to open your new facility. And, gambling is legal there—enabling a safer bet than trying to bluff what will end up as a losing hand. In 1789, Ben Franklin—printing’s patron saint—wrote, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Franklin didn’t envision e-commerce, but he was savvy enough to know that death and taxes remain eternal.
