“That sounds like an excellent idea.”

Syllables are running together because he’s talking fast, “like an” sounds like “fuckin”. When I hear it one way, it’s hard to switch to the other way, like an audio version of this Vasarely cube.

Arizona lawmaker wants to tax porn watchers to help pay for border wall

TUCSON, Arizona (CBS/KOLD) -- Arizona State Senator Gail Griffin has proposed a bill that would tax anyone viewing porn on an electronic device in the state, reports CBS affiliate KOLD.

The bill suggests using software to block pornographic websites until the user's age is confirmed and a fee of at least $20 is paid.

Border security is ranked as the first program on the list to be funded by the porn tax and that could include a border wall.

Those in violation, including anyone who deactivates the blocker, would face a misdemeanor charge...

 

And she's a Republican! 😭

Obviously one of the stupidest ideas ever, but for a surprisingly large number of reasons. Obviously it's ridiculous on its face, and it's ridiculous to think that people won't figure out how to bypass it, but the math on it is crazy too.

Arizona has a population of 6.4 million people. If we assume half are men and half are women, and we trust the stats thrown out at Church last Sunday (no shit, thanks Church) that 85% of men and 33% of women watch porn, that gives us a maximum of 3.8 million total viewers even if we include kids of all ages. Multiply that times the $20 mentioned and you're generating a maximum of $76 million.

By suggesting that border security is "the first" of the causes to be funded by this, she's implying that it would pay for more that just that, which is crazy stupid. AZ represents almost exactly 20% of the total length of the US-Mexico border, meaning raising $76m for AZ would be roughly equivalent to raising $380m for border security for the entire country, which is 6.6% of what Trump is currently asking for to get started on his wall, and somewhere between 0.4-1.5% of its total estimated cost, depending on who you believe.

Sit down, Gail.

Except 69% of legislative proposals are not meant to actually become law.  She makes her base smile when she taxes what they don't like and appears to fund what they do like.  Whether it's proposing a 70% income tax or a $20 porn tax, they're running their mouth for election points, not serious proposals.

Of course she's Republican.  Republicans have long been the "Puritan" party.  While I support their stated (and seldom executed) goals of strong military, removing shackles on business, and smaller government... It's a constant source of frustration that the GOP feels the need to regulate the moral behavior of the population.
