    Patterson proposes Porn Tax

    I praised him when he appointed pro-gun Gillibrand to the Senate to replace that warmongering bitch Hillary but as a nerd I am outraged. Seriously a tax on porn? If Patterson is trying to reach to social and religious conservatives in addition to liberal feminists he is seriously wasting his time. The stupidity in Albany knows no bounds.

    How do you tax someone for online porn, which makes up the majority of the industry?
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Re: Patterson proposes Porn Tax

    Well New Yorkers are taxed on pretty much everything else, so I don't see how this is any different.

    But as already stated, not sure how you're gonna tax online porn. Not without some horribly intrusive monitoring thing and that would be well worse than the tax itself.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Perhaps Paterson should have taxed whores too?
    Then again, this might hit the Spitzer household a little too hard and screw up Elliot's book keeping. LOL.

    I [heart] NY.

    I want to see NYers enjoy more taxes.
    All kinds of taxes.
    The more the merrier.
    C'mon NY, show us how we can tax the nation into prosperity.
    Show us it can work... just once.

    You do realize the reason NY is dark blue is because of New York City right?

    Yes.
    One almost forgets about Upstate. I did for a moment.

    Perhaps it can be broken into two states.
    NYC and burbs making one state.
    We'd get a hair closer to Obama's 57 states.

    We could split CA into NoCal and Socal.
    Getting closer.

    Perhaps we could annex Tijuana and call it a state or leave Tijuana out of the equation... leave it like Switzerland and take all of Baja.

    Back to the beer...

    This would be possible only for online porn distributors who base out of New York itself just as you are obligated to pay sales tax on items you purchase in your state online. Outside the city/state and you run into major problems as you can't charge someone from another state your state's taxes. Federal basis sure, state, no. Another alcohol tax would probably generate more money than this.

    They really are going to drive people out of NY with all of this tomfoolerey aren't they?

    I wonder why a blind guy would want to tax porn.

    The answer to this would be "If I cannot enjoy it, why should anyone else"
