Government is on the verge of completely destroying the economy all because those in power are incapable of managing even a bubblegum machine, rages Armstrong Economics' Martin Armstrong.

Sacramento and dozens of other California cities have similar codes that they are looking to use to tax video streaming. As NYTimes reports,
