TO ANYONE WHO CARES, MY OPINION OF THE PROPOSED "DRUDGE TAX" IS THAT IT SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED IN ANY WAY. THE IDEA THAT I WOULD BE PAYING FOR THE TRAINING OF ANYONE TO LEARN HOW TO EXPRESS THEIR OPINION AS A JOURNALIST IS LAUGHABLE. MOST JOURNALIST POSITIONS TODAY DO PAY LESS THAN OTHER CAREERS AVAILABLE. LET THE COMPANIES WHO AGREE WITH WHAT SOMEONE WRITES ABOUT DECIDE WHETHER THEY WANT TO HELP PAY FOR THEIR WAGES OR NOT. DO NOT EVEN CONSIDER MAKING TAXPAYERS WHO DO NOT HAVE A CHOICE IN WHO THEIR MONEY WOULD GO TOWARD PAY FOR THE TRAINING OF A JOURNALIST.
