Inteller is making a lot of sense here, I'm getting scared.

He also gets mega points for using the word "rube."

My favorite Tulsa COC accomplishment is when they were blowing their horn about how great the Bass Pro shop was for Tulsa...yes the one in Broken Arrow.

"Rube" is a slang term meaning unsophisticated, a "bumpkin" if you will.  Inteller doesn't get any points from me because his use of the term was improper.  A rube may be foolish, but a foolish person is not necessarily a rube.

Since when does being honest and complying with state tax laws make one a rube?  I have paid use taxes on my internet purchases via my state income tax form as required by law.  I also follow city code regarding the maintenance and use of my homestead property.  Does that also make me a "rube?"

I was answering the original question regarding the economic impact of internet commerce.  The answer is that if everyone pays the taxes they are legally bound to, the impact is minimal, at least from a tax collection standpoint.  Local jobs and business profits, that is another matter.

 when they start putting up the PAY YOUR USE TAX signs around town, remind me to make sure your picture is on the poster.  You must be that .001 percent that the state says reports use taxes every year.  congratulations.

The "Metro Area" is what really counts, everyone is in the same boat. If Tulsa flounders, the rest of the metro area does to. The Las Vegas police dept.  use the term "Metro Police" on the sides of their cars, even though they are only Las Vegas Police, outside of Las Vegas the Clark County Sheriff runs the show. My guess is the Tulsa Chamber is pro-Tulsa and it's nearby cities.[B)]

There are actually a couple of chambers within Tulsa, and yes, they fight each other.
