Stripper Tax II
Yesterday morning my commentary - on San Antonio's proposal to tax strip clubs and strippers - said I expected the Human Display Tax scheme to be popular, although personally I think it will be government intrusion gone wild.
I think it's the kind of power-mad political scheme that makes people very happy with term limits.
I didn't expect many of you to agree with me.
In my internet poll yesterday I asked whether you think the stripper fee "is government gone tax crazy and power mad" or "an idea whose time has come." What a surprise. 87 percent of voters said the city is tax crazy and power mad.
Eighty-seven percent! You could have knocked me over with a tassel.
