    At this point it's not taxes (and not just free shipping, I mean sure that's the hook with Amazon prime, but I don't do that almost out of principle (oh I don't have prime, it's not as if I have it...

    or they won't be dealt with until billions of people die first, or humans become extinct, that's also perfectly possible. If it was "dealt with by Bezo's" or "dealt with by Branson" (tm)...

    They had a structural advantage for years and years of not having to pay sales taxes, as did some other online retailers I suppose. That might have something to do with it. Do people forget that...

    I've always taken it as better (more pro-social etc.) values in some parts of the country. Whereas in the wild wild west here, it is what it is. *shrug*

    I'd like more information on why that is so though. Anti-vax conspiracies? Fear of being charged for the vax? (this is also misinformation but I did get a "not a bill" saying I owe). I suppose if...

    Well since vaccinated people can spread it, though probably to a much lesser degree of course, no. I mean if they actually said that they should say something more likely to be accurate, like...

    But there is NO entropy pushing shutdowns really. There might have been a bit of bravado in doing it early in the unknown, but that's LONG gone. And they weren't strictly obeyed anyway and were...
