A subtle hint.

The California tax law that caused Amazon to boot CA residents from their Associates program has been repealed, so my Amazon search box and links have returned to the sidebar. Just in case, you know, you happen to need to buy a $3000 camera and are stuck on where to go for one.

Also, click on the Bureau Chiefs link and pick up something from there while you’re at it. I get no direct commission from that, aside from a mild sense of bemusement that someone, somewhere, might be drinking coffee out of a mug with my “ATM Machine” gag on it.

    California’s legislators repealed a tax law? Wow, never thought I’d ever see that happen given Sacramento’s love affair with taxing everything in sight.

    The law made perfect sense and leveled the playing field so brick-and-mortars could compete with the Internet. So naturally it didn’t stand a chance.

    Sorry, I won’t be using those links.

    First off, the tax law was not repealed, merely delayed, in return to certain concessions from Amazon.

    Secondly, this new law doesn’t add tax anything that wasn’t taxed before, nor even increase the rate at which it’s being taxed. It just changed where that tax was being collected.
