In Reply to: Amazon link posted by Brian in Maine on December 05, 2013 at 16:32:01:
I know a lot of you have used the amazon links to help me make commission on their amazon purchases. I have been paid a small commissions on the purchases from this websites and for that I thank everyone very much for your support.
Due to the shortsighted view point of the legislators of Missouri legislation was approved and signed into law by the ******* governor that caused amazon to cancel all their contracts with their MO associates. I was told by amazon that the new restrictions would just make doing business with all of us too expensive. Sounds to me that is in order with a lot of government regulations that have been enacted to make or lives better that do just the opposite and end costing all of us a lot of money.
I removed the link because I felt guilty knowing that a lot of you thought I was benefiting from your purchases. I have re-installed the link because a lot of you are used to using it. I wrote this to let you know that amazon will no longer pay me anything until new legislation has been enacted, which I will lobby for in Missouri in 2014. Similar legislation has caused amazon to cancel contracts for residents of Arkansas, Colorado, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina or Rhode Island and the residents of these states are not eligible to participate in the Amazon Associates program.
