OTOH, this is how they got Capone--tax evasion.
Fine. I want a tax on First Amendment rights. Let the papers pay by the column inch for the right to publish, and hit them with back taxes all the way back to their founding dates. Milk 'em dry. The money will go to women and minorities: the communities hardest hit by journalistic irresponsibility, after all. Everybody's happy, right?
I always like how the Left defines what is “reasonable”. Comrades, anything that works against 2nd Amendment rights is “reasonable”. /s
How about a 100% tax on newspapers?
If they want to reduce “gun violence” what they need to do is legalize and tax marijuana and use some of the proceeds for drug treatment. The gangs will lose most of their business and will have nothing to fight over.
If the “violence tax” on all ammunition and guns is a good idea, how about a “rape tax” on all alcohol purchases and restaurant meals. After all, rape is frequently associated with alcohol consumption or with dining out. My idea is precisely as sensible as this Chicago proposal.
“Fat Tax”... the more calories per serving a food item is, the more tax you pay... I guess that means beer drinkers would get taxed twice...
