Nowfedup, you should really learn how to write coherent sentences before posting about articles. I can barely tell what you're talking about. From what I can gather (and I may be completely wrong on this one), you're asking why Amazon does not want to collect state income tax. If so, the answer is very simple: One reason people shop through Amazon.com is to save state income tax. So, they would lose those customers in the states in which they have distribution centers. It sounds pretty simple, to me.

This whole article and "study" is ridiculous. We can't look at all the sales that happen at online retailers and use those as a direct correlation to "lost revenue" for Tennessee. Besides, as others have pointed out, having a distribution center in Tennessee won't increase the number of people who shop through Amazon.com. Amazon coming to Chattanooga simply adds jobs, generates more income (to be spent and therefore taxed), and adds income to other related industries that support Amazon's business. It sounds like a win-win to me! Brick and mortar stores are going to have to sell online to compete, but that's not the fault of Amazon coming to Chattanooga, it's a symptom of the times. Deal with it.

He was in a medically induced coma. That means one that is brought on by medicine and can be ended at any time. And yes, he should have been treated, and no he should never get out of jail again!
