California’s fascist government wants to tax your right to free speech

SEE: California Wants to Tax Your Text Messages. Here’s Why

”Gather round, millennials and Generation Z, to learn about the landline era, when the U.S. federal government and states established so-called Public Purpose Programs. These programs charged all users of telephone services a surcharge that subsidized programs for lower earners. They also apply to other utilities such as electricity and natural gas. During the rise of the Internet, however, the telecoms industry managed to get an exemption for “information services” such as web browsing and email.”

So, according to California’s fascist government, they want to tax A’s right to free speech, to allow B to exercise their right to “free speech”. But as it turns out, B gets to exercise government subsidized free speech at “A’s” expense.

Only in California!


Illegal immigration is now costing American citizens over $18 billion a year in healthcare costs alone, far more than the cost of building a wall! LINK

It’s a silly idea but the silver lining is that very few people use the phone’s texting app anymore. Most use a third party app like Whatsapp and they cannot tax that.

Cal’s dems will put up with anything. Building France…

Does that mean Cal’s politicians are ignorant and out of touch?

This is the kind of crap that happens when our Supreme Court violates the text of our Constitution and its documented legislative intent!

Keep in mind In 1998, the U. S. Supreme Court, and with reference to free speech, ruled in the case National Endowment for the Arts v. Finley, that NEA grants are constitutional if content does not offend "…general standards of decency…" But the Court not only ignored the absence of a power granted to Congress by our Constitution to fund the promotion of art, it likewise ignored the carefully limited wording in our Constitution granting power to Congress To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, which then goes on to limit how this may be done by the following words, “. . . by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries.”

Not only is federal funding of the “arts” not authorized by our federal Constitution, but taxing and spending for this purpose, has given us such things as Andres Serrano’s anti-Christian bigotry called “P*** Christ”; Robert Mapplethorpe’s homosexual display called “The Perfect Moment”; Annie Sprinkle’s pornographic performances at a New York theater; Karen Finley, “the nude, chocolate smeared women”; Kyle Abraham’s “The Watershed and When the Wolves Came In” focusing on sexual identity; a 2016 festival for sexual deviant singing groups who appeared in a “flash mob” in Denver; taxpayer financing for a sexual deviant festival in San Francisco; funding for the Feminist Press at the City University of New York to digitize classic LGBT titles; an open mic group in D.C for story telling about “Queer Culture in America"; and the recent venomous and hateful smut financed by tax revenue being Shakespeare In Central Park, depicting the violent murder of President Trump ___ all of which is a plain violation of a working person’s 1st Amendment protections who had their earned wages confiscated to finance the speech of others!

So, how does federal funding of the arts violate a taxpayer’s guarantee that Congress shall make no law …abridging freedom of speech? Federal funding does so by allowing A, who has received federal grant money taxed away from B, to vocalize and express their opinions and feelings in a more forceful manner than B, who has been taxed to finance A’s expressions and feelings in public, while B’s financial resources are reduced by the hand of the federal government in its quest to fund A’s speech and expressions.

So, we can very well see how our constitutionally limited system of government can be undermined and subjugated when judges and Justices ignore the actual text of our Constitution, and its documented legislative intent which gives context to its text, and these judges and Justices take it upon themselves to do what they arbitrarily allege is an “equal right to those appearing before them” as Justice Roberts alleged.

As mobile phone users have shifted their usage patterns away from voice calls, voice call revenues for PPP have dropped by about a third, while the budget for subsidizing poorer users has risen by almost half.

Of course they can. They can tax anything.

The OP failed to describe how this tax is a on “free speech”. I read the article and do not see it…

Text messaging is a service… no one is required to use the service. If you don’t want to get taxed, then use a service that routes messages over the internet…

And in this case, taxing two people communicating with each other so a third party may exercise subsidized communications at the expense of those taxed.

Meanwhile in the white house…

Huh? What does that have to do with California’s fascist government?


That is where actual fascism has been playing out.

How is this different from the federal and state taxes and fees we already pay for phone service?

Giving funding for a platform vs others is not a violation of the first amendment. Jeez even in my ron paul cheering days i would have thought this insanely nuts.

How is this different from this program, established in 1984 by President Reagan?

Well, I already explained why it is a violation HERE


So money is speech and taxation which goes towards things you dont like is a violation of your rights. Mmmkay.

You may have a reading comprehension problem if that is the conclusion you arrived at.

I dont usually bother with your copypasta tl;dr but this is silly stretch.

tl;dr? Although I read at approximately 800 wpm, with excellent comprehension and retention, the average person reads at about 200 wpm. You may need to take a speed reading class if my posts are too long for you to read them.

Aside from that, if you are not interested in reading my posts, then you have no legitimate reason for responding to my posts other than to be a nuisance.


If we can make 51 percent of America’s population dependent upon the federal government for its subsistence through immigration, we can then bribe them for their vote, keep ourselves in power and keep the remaining portion of America’s productive population enslaved to pay the bills ____ The Democrat Party Leadership’s Marxist game plan.
