What this really speaks to is; what pussies today's kids are. Not so long ago, people just made it through and got their satisfaction having the bully mow their lawn, and wash their car, when real life began after high school. No one, in my entire scholastic experience, took their own life or came in and shot the place up. It sucked to be bullied, but it was hardly the end of the world. I was bullied plenty, mentally and physically, & learned to toughen up and pick my battles.
The Supreme court judges have been writing law, as opposed to interpreting it, for decades. The political parties game the system, a judge in failing health, has them salivating, when in a position to appoint. I've seen some very questionable rulings lately, that have to be (IMO) just following party lines. the problem is; they an oath to uphold the constitution.
Mainly; that the original intent of sales tax was to put the burden of maintaining the town / states infrastructure on those who used it. So the streets, cops, etc were at least partially paid for by the people out using them. The California shoppers in this example, aren't using any of that, except perhaps if delivery is other than USPS who come to every house every day, then they might cause .01% of the burden they would impose on the shopping district compared to actually going out shopping.
I'd be more enthusiastic if not for my experience with local government. Ours are quite corrupt, occasionally, we manage to elect a good honest person. Within 6 months to a year, they are as nearly as bad as the previous ones. I don't think this is perception, I've known a couple before they were candidates, & couldn't believe how they were voting a year after election. Apparently $$ is one hell of a drug.
Worse yet it is flagging them as a place good software goes to die. The reader wasn't if I remember correctly developed in house, but was bought from the developer. they messed with it and made it slightly worse, in the name of all change is good change, now are abandoning it,
