Terry Frank tells us that Stacey Campfield wants to get rid of the tax on food and replace it with a tax on porn. Now, I’m all for getting rid of the tax on food. Heck, I’m all for getting rid of taxes in general. But this is a stupid idea. It’s stupid for a few reasons but the main reason is that porn is free. It’s true. Ever since Al Gore gave us the Internet, porn has been free. It’s everywhere. You can even Google it up. And it’s piped into your home for free without having to go to the local porn store and, you know, run into your boss or something.
It’s also stupid because I doubt there’s enough volume of porn to compensate for the amount of groceries bought. So, Stacey, here’s an idea: Cut the tax on food and cut spending. Novel concept! Stacey writes:
The items I am considering are magazine’s, videos (online, cable purchase or hard copy) or items that you have to be over the age of 18 to view or purchase due to sexual content. R rated movies will not be included. Strip club fees and purchases of services at strip clubs and Escort services will also be included.
Aren’t escort services illegal if they involve sex? And today’s funny comes from the News Sentinel:
Kristi Dunn, store manager of Inserection Adult Fantasy Store, 501 N. Broadway, does not think the proposed tax will be of much concern to the store’s patrons.
Ha! That’s funny.
