Amazon Associates

Amazon has a program that you can do to earn money advertising things.  I didn't get to join it because, now pay close attention, I LIVE IN COLORADO.  I couldn't figure out why Colorado wasn't in the drop down menu when I went to pick a state. I sent them an email asking:

  I don't have an account yet but when I tried to fill out the application my state is missing from the drop down menu.  I live in Colorado, is there a reason Colorado isn't listed?

This is the response I got:
Because you're located in Colorado, we're unable to accept your application to join the Associates Program because of unconstitutional legislation enacted in your state. While we oppose this unconstitutional state legislation, we strongly support the federal Marketplace Fairness Act now pending before Congress, which would create a simplified, constitutional framework to resolve interstate sales tax issues and would allow us to re-open our Associates program to Colorado residents. 

We appreciate your understanding.

Thank you for your inquiry. Did I solve your problem?

What kind of crap is that?  I have nothing to do with the legislation here in Colorado.  They make their own rules just like every other government.  They didn't even list the legislation they are against.  I think this is totally unfair.  I am going to post this and hope it goes viral so maybe they see how many people like their decision.
