Paul is just in favor of regressive taxation for everyone!

You are kidding right? The Government at local, state, and federal level have been subsidizing Walmart for DECADES. http://www.thirdworldtraveler.com/Corpor…

Majority of people seem to be A-OK with government subsidized unfair competition if it means cheaper goods.

Surely Paul wouldn't post such an absurd hypothetical without typing "virginia walmart tax break" into Google, right?

So, Paul, where's the outrage in the streets about the tax deal that you implied doesn't exist?

(Dear Stranger: can we get Paul off of the Amazon beat? All of his critical thinking skills go out the window when they're involved in a story)

Scofflaw? Really? Scofflaw?

Paul Constant, a guy who just got back from the MLA convention, bragging about what a fucking intellectual he is, doesn't give a shit about the correct meaning of words.

I'm going to stop thinking about you and Cienna as Virginia and the Amazon. Friends with tax benefits.
