Arizona Lawmaker Wants to Tax Porn to Fund Building of Trump’s Border Wall

An Arizona legislator may hold the key to funding President Trump's border wall.

As the government shut down over the funding for President Trump's proposed border wall continues into its 32nd day, the search for a solution grows ever more urgent.

It may be that the answer to the conflict has been found in Arizona. Republican State Representative Gail Griffin wants porn, not Congress, to pay for the wall.

TAX PORN USERS TO PAY FOR THE WALL

Griffin has introduced a House bill that would require manufacturers and retailers of electronic equipment to install porn-blocking software in their merchandise.

Customers who want to watch porn would have to pay $20 to access their desired entertainment, and the resulting funds would be put to good use - like paying for the wall.

The porn industry earns a cool $15 billion a year in profit - enough to build 3 walls.

CONTROLLING ACCESS TO PORN FOR MINORS

An added advantage would be that porn viewers would have to provide proof of their legal age. The bill would make deactivating the blocker without paying the fee a crime.

USING THE PORN TAX FOR THE COMMUNITY

Griffin proposes that the funds from the fees could be used to fund the border wall, to give additional funds and grants to mental health services, temporary housing, school districts, and law enforcement.

OTHER STATES PROPOSE PORN TAX

Griffin is not alone with her proposal to make porn users pay for their pleasure. Virginia and Rhode Island have proposed similar bills - but not to fund the wall.

It remains to be seen it the two-thirds majority of the State House and State Senate agree with Griffin. Meanwhile, advocates of the adult entertainment industry are protesting the bill as unconstitutional.

The porn industry earns a cool $15 billion a year in profit - enough to build 3 walls. Someone should tell the President.

ALL ABOUT BUILDING THE WALL

The border wall President Donald Trump promised to build during his electoral campaign has been setting the U.S. on its ear.

The President had promised voters that the wall would be paid for by Mexico - that not a cent would come out of tax-payers pockets. Now, he is in a deadlock with Congress over the $5,7 billion he needs to build that wall.

He chose the wall design from among eight prototypes, picking one which is both tall and "see-through." Trump named the selected design the "Steel Slat Barrier,"  declaring it:

"Totally effective while at the same time beautiful!" 

The President has reiterated that the shutdown will continue until Congress yields him the funds to build his "Steel Slat Barrier" on the border between the U.S. and Mexico.

In a related story, border wall prototypes were shown to be unsafe in Homeland Security tests.
