In front of Walmart. People flocking to sign. All about the tax on online sellers here in CA.

Black guy too.

Watched him for about half an hour and listened to his spiel.

Then i told him the news he needed to know.
1. WALMART IS FOR THE TAX.
2. this will FUCK over you friends. the ones in jail, the ones receiving any type of public assistance, your kid's education etc.

"But nobody likes to be taxed" he replied. Someone in the line echoed that sentiment.

It was like he had no idea that taxes pay for stuff. And if this is repealed then brick and mortar sellers, who are now paying taxes on online sales, will be able to sell online without taxes. (Technically they can now if sale is made out of state but don't).

Less revenue, less stuff the state provides. The less good roads the less parks that are open etc....
