No we're too busy paying taxes for our free healthcare, we can't afford crack.

But why is it such a big deal that amazon is now charging you tax that you're expected to pay anyway? You have to claim all your purchases when you file your taxes don't you? Unless of course you didn't plan to claim them, which is exactly the point of all this.

Anything that helps levelling out the playing field between online businesses and local businesses is a good thing, imho. There are a lot of amazing deals on Amazon, none of which helps your local community remain vibrant.

Probably what I will be doing from now on. Shame.

I agree with everything you say minus the crack innuendo.

I'm willing to bet it's still lower than here in Canada. I'm willing to bet the highest taxed state is still lower than here in Canada. We have been paying taxes on Amazon.ca and every other Canadian online dealer as far as I remember. So like Matt said, boo freakin' hoo!

EIDT: Am I reading this wrong, or do you really only have to pay 5-5.6% taxes on a purchase?

Definitely. As a yearly visitor to Canada, I can attest that complaining about American taxes (or gas prices for that matter) to a Canadian is a rather useless endeavor. You're complaining to the wrong person. No matter where you live in the US you really should consider yourself lucky in comparison.

I'd trade lower taxes for higher average wages and cheaper health insurance any day of the week. But then I'm a socialist by nature.

Not for long. Big daddy government just began it's take over 1/6 of the US economy. Everyday is an entitlement wonderland in the US where the few of us with decent jobs are footing the bill more and more. Yay socialism!

The ACA isn't socialism by any stretch of the imagination. It's a huge handout to the private insurance companies while at the same time introducing minimum standards for coverage and much needed protections for consumers. It has as much to do with socialism as it has to do with capitalism.

Now Saw V and Saw IV BD's in Amazon for $5 each one.

But sadly for me, Amazon.com is for certain reason asking for so much money in shipping charges to Peru. I tried to buy a $5 BD and it charged me $18 for shipping.

Amazon.co.uk is a best option in my case. Some great Arrow BD's are in sale right now, and shipping charges for 3 BD's are like $10 which is acceptable.

Or maybe the british are broken right now... Do you know if UK is in problems these days? Maybe they're selling and shipping cheap because of that.

I can use emoticons too.

The ACA is a hand grenade designed to destroy private insurance companies and lead us to single-payer health care. The ACA is another nail in the coffin of capitalism and personal freedom/responsibility.

Lol every time I go to the states (on average 8-10 times a year) I still can't get over how cheap everything is. But unless you're there for more than 48 hours, you get screwed with taxes when you cross the border back into Canada.

Sales tax is 13% in Ontario. I guess to the Brits, though, that's still only pennies. Whenever I order something from amazon UK the VAT tax that gets deducted from my order is usually around 20%. That's madness.

Which is all the funnier considering that the whole thing was originally a Republican backed alternative to the single payer system Democrats supported back in the 90s.

And I think you really mean "personal freedom of irresponsibility".

Guys, we need to get back on topic. Oh, and Robocop has been named as the interim mayor of Toronto.

How's that funny? Republicans like entitlements and big government just as much as the Dems.

And I don't know what your trying to say by "personal freedom of irresponsibility". But don't care either, smartass.
