    I missed this new tax and I usually keep up with stuff like this. They slipped this one right by me.


    I looked at some older ones that had the same things I'd bought and none of them had a "CA. LUMBER FEE".

    I believe I'd be asking about that. What the heck is a CA Lumber fee??

    When a state is broke with the wealthy moving to other states (only way to not be forced to support deadbeats) a new tax is no surprise. Sorry Dennis California used to be a beautiful state.

    I just returned from the Stockton show and it was a great show but man, driving through Stockton was depressing, bars on most all the windows, garbage everywhere, graffitti on anything vertical and too many rundown trailer courts to count.

    Weird thing about California is that even though they are broke the state pays more taxes then what they receive in government benefits. Only around 12 states do that.

    In Iowa we got charged extra for buying soda in plastic bottles...it's a refundable tax, supposedly, if you bring the bottles back to who-knows-where. Hopefully this means we'll be going back to glass bottles again...I'm sure there will be a deposit on those too just like "back in the day" but cold glass bottles always made the soda taste better...
