I took President’s day off. I know, terrible, right? Well let’s try to catch up.

Some sales tax stuff: Bill Haslam is among those who back the interstate sales tax compact which is why legislative efforts continue. Interesting I think that the squishes of the Senate are backing it, but in the states, it’s the conservative governors.

Here’s an interesting development: Google working with an elected Republican, but on something other than policy.
House Republicans continue to hold Obama accountable for his stimulus failures.
And a trio of copyright links: Google looks to defund infringers, Kim Dotcom claims to be getting users though no word on profits, and the Pirate Bay notices IP rights matter.
