The Sun Tan Tax is a Tax against Light Skinned Women

facebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

How did the media miss this one? A tax that is inherently racist against light skinned people and sexist against light skinned women. The latest health care bill imposes a 10% tax on customers who want or need a tan because they have light skin color. Racism and sexism all in one convenient tax.

Working class women would be disproportionately affected by the tanning tax that some say is sexist.

If you are going by logic and reason then yes it would be equally racist to tax something that is predominately used by a single group of people. There is no doubt in my mind that white woman use tanning beds more than any other demographic.

As a result, many light skinned patrons of tanning salons locations are outraged by the so-called “tanning tax” and think they’re being unfairly targeted by the bill. The tanning tax will go into effect July 1 and will apply to electronic products designed for tanning. It’s supposed to generate $2.7 billion over the next 10 years. But it won’t as customers change their tanning habits to meet personal budgets.

Where is the media coverage on this? It’s conveniently covered up by calling it an anti-cancer bill. It’s an anti-cancer bill stupid. Well if that’s anti-cancer what’s next, a tax when you go outside because the sun is right there, THE major cause of skin cancer. How exactly would you tax that?

Uncovered Historic Event: United Democrats Fail to Pass Budget

Harry Reid flashes his Message to all Americans

During an appearance Sunday on ABC’s This Week, Congressman John Boehner said Washington Democrats’ job-killing spending spree has gotten so out of hand that the Democratic-led House will not even pass a budget this year, which would be a first in the modern era.

This is the first time in decades that a single party controlled both houses of congress and the executive branch. This is also the first time since grandpaw was born that there will likely be no budget resolution. So where is ABC? The story was broken by 8th Ohio District House Republican Minority Leader Boehner, yet I see no reporting other than what was said on This Weak, I mean This Week.

Where are the newtorks? Where is the Clinton News Network (CNN)? Where are the white anchors over at  MS-LSD? too busy with figuring out how to get high off the oil fumes? And where is the Can’t Believe Shit (CBS) News? Busy with DRT -Dan Rather Training- on just how make up the news?

I know where they are. The are reporting on just how bad Big ‘BP’ Business really is. Yes, big business killing people will always trump boring stories about taking care of our tax dollars. Never mind that Big, Partisan Government not only is misspending our money, big government has a major fiscal responsibility that it isn’t living up to.

The same money that will be used to fund many things that we the people don’t want funded.

But just how much of what we don’t want is getting funds? How will the government operate without a sound budget? The world may never know. Just like how many licks it takes to get inside of a tootsie pop.

And the Main Stream Media just drives by without a care.

Stupid is what stupid reads.

iPad Tax to a Fund State Run Media?

Jeff Jarvis explains how Not to Save the News

According to Jeffrey Jarvis of the NY Post, FTC staffers speculated that an iPad tax would be needed to pay for subsidies, expemptions and copyright law enforcement. According to Jarvis, who testified to the FCC and the FTC, the government may explore these new interventions in the name of saving such failing news sources as the New York Times, the Washington Post and other antiquated print news sources:

* Expanding copyright law and restricting the doctrine of fair comment to benefit legacy publishers.
* Granting antitrust exemptions to allow publishers to collude on pricing to consumers and to business partners.
* Giving news organizations tax exemptions.
* Subsidizing news organizations by increasing government funding to public broadcasting; establishing an AmeriCorps to pay reporters; giving news companies tax credits for employing journalists; creating a national fund for local news, and giving the press an increased postal subsidy.

They want to start a government run journalistic new organization called AmeriCorps! What is this Great Britain? If you allow the state to run the media, we will only hear what the state wants to hear. Another socialist idea from our newly elected socialist government.

Instead of making the taxpayers pay for a state run news organization in a failing industry, the newspaper and print media industry, media outlets need to look for better internet distribution of their journalistic product. News agregators like the Drudge Report are just one way of getting eyeballs. Another is to write stuff people like to read so new aggregators will want to aggregate your work.

Nationalizing any media is a slippry slope that will only lead to a far worse product, produced by not the most highly qualified, but rather the most highly connected individuals. You want to kill journalism? Then nationalize it.

“Most dangerous of all,” according to Jarvis, “the FTC considers a doctrine of ‘proprietary facts,’ as if anyone should gain the right to restrict the flow of information just as the information is opening it up. Copyright law protects the presentation of news but no one owns facts — and if anyone did, you could be forbidden from sharing them. How does that serve free speech?”

Let traditional media die a slow death on it’s own. We don’t need no stinken government telling us what to write or read. Keep your mits off the most important government check and balance, the free media.

In closing, Jeff Jarvis testified to both the FTC and the FCC, “Get off our lawn.” That didn’t make it into the report, nor was it reported by the failing traditional media. How Absurd? Not really.

Here’s more absurdity:
