Mr

"All insurance is a bet between you and the insurer on the odds of something happening."

No, insurance is not a bet. It is a sharing of risk among all participants in the pool with the insurance company collecting the premiums and paying the bills. For handling the paperwork, the insurance gets to charge a fee called profit.

nexus

Under Texas law, if the company has no nexus in Texas the company is not required to collected and remit sales tax.

When an entity files an application for a sales tax license they are required to put the address of the business on the application. If a mistake is made the tax can be sent to the wrong city.

Why?

The difference being if you don't own a car you don't have to buy car insurance. To not buy health insurance you have to be dead. Obviously, you have a choice about buying car insurance. You don't have a choice about buying health insurance. Actually you do have a choice.However, you can buy a car later, you can not come back to life.

Paris because she may be able to do what medical science cannot do.

Software re-sale restricted by US Court of Appeals

cars

When you buy a used or new car you don't buy a license to use the car, it is your's. If you buy a used car (Ford) you may be offered an extended warranty, usually at a high price. And, Ford will fix certain defects on used cars because they want to maintain good customer relations and, in some cases, the federal government requires them to do the repair for safety considerations.

Perhaps if everyone stopped buying software under the lecensing agreement the software companies would change their terms and make it a sale.
