Those damned crooks in Baton Rouge want to tax my Netflix!!!

Those thieving bastards in Baton Rouge are at it again, this time wanting to tax streaming services like Netflix. They want to tax streaming services to help make up for the budget shortfall this year. However, I refused to tolerate that and immediately e-mailed my state representative, Kirk Talbot. Here's what the message said...

Dear Representative Talbot,

I recently read in the New Orleans Advocate that the state legislature will soon consider passing a tax on streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime.

As one of your constituents, I would like to express my outright condemnation at this idea. I've been financially struggling for quite some time now. I can't afford any new taxes, especially on the one form of entertainment that's actually affordable for me. This tax would not help the state to get more money from me. It will just make me stop using Netflix.

As your constituent, I strongly urge you to oppose this measure and do everything in your power to convince your fellow representatives to follow suit.

Kindest regards,

Lord Publius

I had my real name in the e-mail but, I'm obviously not posting that here. If you live in Louisiana House District 78 and want to contact Representative Talbot, you can do so by the following methods:

If you aren't sure who you're representative in the Louisiana Legislature is, you can find out my going to this website here:

Evidence of 4chan's greatest (and oftentimes most horrifying) pranks...

Ever wonder where Memes and Internet culture come from? Is it Facebook? Reddit? Twitter? 9gag?

Nope. It's from 4chan. Or, as the site is more commonly known, 'the asshole of the internet'. I'm writing this post because a friend of mine asked me about this site when I mentioned it to him. If he looks through all of this, chances are good he will want nothing to do with this site. I can't say that I blame him. I rarely go anywhere near it myself. Follow ANY link in this post at your own risk. I take no responsibility for any shock, horror or hysterical fits of laughter you may suffer.

The following links will demonstrate the sheer power (and incredibly sick humor) of the site...
