in all honesty, it isn't a fair playing field for brick and mortars that have to compete.

So when are these brick and mortar shops going to pay for same-day shipping for competitors' mail orders, you know, so the brick and mortar stores won't have an unfair advantage when it comes to delivery times?

What does this have to do with whether the item is taxed or not? That's a pricing issue.

It has everything to do with the oft-trotted-out claim that this is about a "fair playing field", which is a complaint by the retail stores that taxes make their goods more expensive than the competition's.  You know, "a pricing issue."
