From Beef Bouillon to Gold Bullion, the Stripper Tax Goes Down

Relax dude. Were not going to tax you. That looks taxing enough.

It's not really my life's goal to work the stripper beat here at Pith, and yet, here I am. I'm woefully underqualified, as I've only ever been in a strip club once — and that was when a drunken libertarian took me to the Clermont Lounge in Atlanta. I'm not sure I can be held accountable for anything that happens with a drunken libertarian.

Anyway, that's a story not appropriate for a publication my parents might read. Let's turn our focus back to our strippers, who, you remember, Joe Carr and Stacey Campfield wanted to tax in order to lower the food tax. Remember how Campfield was all "It will raise $55 million!" and I was skeptical?

Well, the bill has died for the year, which is almost not worth noting except for this one little thing: "A House panel has killed a bill seeking to tax strippers to pay for a reduction in the state tax on gold coins, bullion and investment income."

Hmmm. From alleviating the food tax to reducing the onerous tax burden on coin collectors. I guess Carr and Campfield ended up not believing there was $55 million worth of tax revenue to be found in strip clubs either.
