A Boner Tax?

Sunday, a day of total relaxation and Zen…….this is how you keep from burning out of the crap we call….politics…….and NO!  I am not talking about the Speaker of the House….this post kinda goes along with yesterday’s post…….

Speaking of pole dancing!

We have many on the Right saying that we are taxed to death……we pay too much corporate tax or income tax or estate tax or…..well you get the idea…..we are taxed to death, so to speak……we pay taxes on everything…..now New York has another one….you know the state where they want to ban salt and tax soft drinks or ban cell phone use while walking…….they have a new tax to invoke…….a tax on a lap dance……

A state appeals court has dismissed a bid by an Albany-area strip club to wiggle out of paying $125,000 in back sales taxes on lap dances and admission fees charged to customers — and the ruling is arousing “exotic” dance clubs in the Big Apple.But the Appellate Division on Thursday unanimously ruled that Nite Moves was a typical jiggle joint subject to the sales tax — more bump-and-grind than art.

“In our view there can be no serious question that — at a bare minimum — petitioner failed to meet its burden of establishing that private dances offered at its club were choreographed performances,” Justice John Egan Jr. wrote in the Appellate Division, Third Department ruling.

So now NY wants to tax a boner….but is not sales tax charged on stuff that is tangible, like food or clothing or transportation?  Well, I guess one would get something tangible from a lap dance….but would not it be more of a service charge…..after all you are spending money for a service….you know kinda like hiring an architect or a lawyer?
All these political types want to cut taxes……but not if it is a sin tax……once again they are imposing their moral bullshit on me……or others, in this case……are other spectator sports taxed heavily?

  1. Hmm taxes are suddenly OK when they come from titty bars. But aren’t they’re a business? They create jobs! Those kind of jobs don’t count. *shaking head*
