'Six Californias' Instead of One?

Only two of the proposed six states would be solid liberal. The remaining four would be "red" stares. Much of California is quite conservative. As it is the conservative areas are under represented because the large cities overpower them in numbers of votes.

You must think all of California is liberal. Actually four of the six proposed states would be "red" states.

Putting Meat Myths to the Fire

The paleo diet is misleading in that much of the meat the followers eat did not exist to primitive man. After all, how many Herefords were living wild in the cave man days. Also, I wonder if average human lifespan would be reduced to 28 as it was for primitive man? At least with a much shorter lifespan many of the health problems that paleos are trying to avoid would not have time to develop.

I believe in fairness and a level playing field. If the Internet merchant must charge sales tax they should only collect the portion of sales tax that exceeds the amount of shipping and handling which the local merchant does not charge. Inmost cases the shipping charges would be more than the sales tax so no tax would be due.

Are Online Sales Taxes Only Fair?

The "brick and mortar" stores have an advantage over the Internet sellers in that they do not need to add in a shipping charge on top of the cost of the item. To be "fair" it seems to me that the Internet sellers should only be able to collect sales tax over and above the cost of the shipping amount.
Not even ONE? Wow!
VIA is heavily government subsidized and without that does not make a profit. Also, for the long haul (coast to cast) it is quite expensive. Back in the day there was CN and CP passenger service which eventually became unprofitable. VIA rail was created by the government to try and preserve some passenger service. Taxation from many sources supports the rail service, which could not operate without this infusion of cash. Part of the $32 Greyhound fare you speak of goes to support your "free" rail tickets.
