Re: Amazon boycott

I am not certain that taxes collected and paid by companies like 
Amazon would, in fact, go to schools, libraries, infrastructure, 
etc.  In the current political environment, it is more likely the 
collected monies would go for tax breaks for corporations and the 
wealthy. See: Wisconsin,Ohio, Florida, US Congress.  When the 
state lottery was initiated in New York, the monies were to go to 
education.  Indeed.  That doesn't seem to have happened.  Until 
state legislatures pass laws that are a lock for directing money 
to schools and libraries, I doubt the benefit will go to these
