Brad Messer Commentary KTSA Tuesday, August
The city of San Antonio proposes a tax on strip clubs and strippers.
City Hall wants to expand its territory. Pick any type of business that some voters don't like, and force its workers to pay a tax in order to do their job. This idea could be expanded quite easily.
Might I suggest a Panhandler's Tax. Bums on streets should have to pay the city to work their corners.
How about a Mayor Tax. Charge him every time he opens his mouth in public.
Maybe the city should go for talk hosts. A work-permit fee ought to keep the riffraff out.
Make no mistake about it. This Human Display Tax scheme is going to be popular. It'll be argued that it's no different than a permit fee for taxi cabs, or a fee for sidewalk vendors. That may all be true. But it is still government intrusion gone wild. It's the kind of power-mad political scheme that makes people very happy with term limits.
