Cow tails, taxes and politics

about_arnold_img3 Thanks to David Lewis for bringing to my attention Arnold Schwarzenneger's sense of humor and appreciation for political theater. In the video below, which he tweeted about yesterday, the governor calls out legislators for debating about expansion of an existing law that makes it a misdemeanor to cut the solid part of the tail of any horse in the operation known as "docking." Senate Bill 135, introduced by Dean Florez, would likewise prohibit the docking of cattle. On a more serious note and more relevant to online advertising, Governor Schwarzenneger yesterday announced Overstock.com will reinstate California-based internet affiliate advertisers. This is great news for the affiliate marketing industry, which is fighting hard to avoid the so-called Amazon Tax from being introduced in California.
