Why Taxing Online Shopping Is Unfair

Why Taxing Online Shopping Is Unfair

The hysterical lobbying for sales tax to be collected by online retailers reminds me of a story about two farmers on a dairy collective in the old Soviet Union.



Vanya and Vasili were farmers at the dairy collective. They both came to the collective at the same time,…

The lynchings and Jim Crow laws were based of white fears of blacks developing themselves economically. This became quite evident in the aftermath of Katrina, when white outrage was sparked at the assistance offered New Orleans’ residents as they were evacuated, and were re-located into areas of the country that are content to have limited… Continue

Richard Mayhew: The Spirit of Self-Indulgence As Art

Richard Mayhew: The Spirit of Self-Indulgence as Art:

Halima Taha, PhD
