Rhode Island Wants To Tax Pornography

Authored by Simon Black via SovereignMan.com,

The government hasn’t yet figured out how to tax having sex. But Rhode Island at least wants to tax pornography.

Yes I’m serious.

It starts with censorship: two Rhode Island state senators just introduced legislation that would require Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to block all “sexual content and patently offensive material.”

We have no idea, of course, what is considered “offensive”. But in an age of cry-bullies where even the word “man” offends delicate university students, we can only imagine this covers a lot of ground.

Rhode Islanders could then unblock this ‘offensive’ content with a written request, presentation of government-issued ID which proves they’re over the age of 18, and then making a one-time payment of $20.

Internet Service Providers must collect the money and send it to the Rhode Island Treasury every quarter.

Enforcing this law rests solely on the shoulders of the ISPs. If they fail to respond to reports of unblocked pornography or sexual content, they will be fined $500 for each instance.

We can only begin to imagine what other genius ideas these politicians will come up with next.

Jews own/run the pornography business. Jews also like money. This really shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, they probably had the plans for this drawn up 50 years ago. Hell it's probably in the protocols somewhere...

Virginia was before Rhode Island by about a month.  Democrat consultants always on the scam:


Virginia wants to create a database of people that watch porn on the internet… maybe they can create different reelection ads and solicit campaign contributions for each type of porn watcher. The proposed plan is to block people that don’t pay their new porn tax.

How does this differ from the crime of living off the proceeds of a prostitute?


Perhaps the proceeds till be used to pay for Viagra for Medicare recipients? lol


If the Dims are set against eliminating Free Speech one way of another. What will they want next, our guns ?

Why wasting time with that; they better put a cam in every citizen's bedroom and be done with it. They can extort, blackmail everyone indefinitely, that's their goal anyways.

Protect the children says everyone who ever wants to use kids as a tool to take whatever right they've decided you can no longer have.

Who decides what's speech and what's porn? It's a slippery slope to full political censorship.

I don't know art but I know what I like.

Porn, like guns, is a dangerous element of a free and healthy society.

Or do you think Sharia law should replace the constitution? 

Because that is where all this is headed: liberal groupthink posing as 'moralizing'.

Fuck protect the children, how about protecting the adults from the fascist nanny state?

Oh my unfucking Gawd...I'm ordering cases of water bottles that test high for BPA's, then keeping my cell phone pressed up against my 'nads and upgrading to 5G.  I'm also going to troll some dating websites and see if Lorena Bobbitt is still available.  I've had enough!!

Every politician and elected/appointed official in RI would need to send in $20 to keep watching their porn.  Thus, they'll likely amend the bill to exclude them from the requirement.  Although already grossly overtaxed RI is effectively bankrupt, even this idea won't put the state's horrid finances in the black.  Might work in Connecticut, though

Next bill:  raising the fee, on a graduated basis, depending on how extreme the level of the porn.

No, actually they will get a free pass.   After all, somebody has to bravely and tirelessly watch all that alleged porn to make the final designation on whether it is really porn or not.   Thank god we have such faithful and dedicated public servants.

more interesting is Purdue avoid words with 'man' in it. So no more women or woman. What about female? There is a 'male' in there so that's a no no. I guess we are stuck with 'bitch'.

Don't look now, but the Founding Fathers never meant for the First Amendment to open the floods gates of pornography. Does anyone seriously believe that was the original intent? And please don't quote me the Supreme Court ruling. Everyone knows they make up at least 50% of their rulings out of thin air. The fact that America refuses to block such content from minors is insane. Who would have believed that minors could access such content by a few keystrokes? And then we wonder why our culture is in the toilet and getting worse. May God have mercy on our souls, but our country, once Christian at least in morals, will be judged harshly on this side of eternity.

The rich are getting screwed...  Trump buys a high priced hooker and the dirty whore keeps coming back for more money.  I have no doubt, she wasn't nearly that good.

Gentlemen.... we are so fucked! 

And, forget about our young generation dominating the global market; thus, don't expect any SSI in the future...

Better to get Cryptos now...

And soon a few enterprising porn sites will offer end to end encryption using a public key.  Voila--that an a VPN would seem untraceable.

There's just no goddamn end to these sonsovbitches and their goddamn taxing!


Can you imagine when that database gets lost, and the names come out!?


Somebody should punch those Dems in the face.
