New York Gov. David Paterson — in his continuing heroic effort to completely free his state from the chains of any kind of flourishing commerce, while at the same time giving Michigan Gov. Granholm a serious challenge for the title of “Most Counter-Productive Governor” — has added a “bowling tax” to his lengthy repertoire of bad ideas.
Sweet mother of Earl Anthony, what’s going on here? Government interference with bowling is just plain unpatriotic — if such a thing as true patriotism even exists anymore.
Bowlers in New York aren’t happy, and I don’t blame them. And you know what happens when you make us bowlers angry, don’t you? We take action… just as soon as we put our regular walking shoes back on, finish the pizza and sober up.
Paterson’s growing list of idiocy includes taxing iTunes downloads, raising the gas tax, an obesity tax (uh, just tell him you’re thin, it’s not like he’s going to know), a “sugary drinks tax” and even a porn tax.
Brothers in bowling, join the Tea Parties! March to the state Capitol and scream in unison, “Keep your laws off our balls!” (if that’s not a lucrative t-shirt idea, I don’t know what is)
