California wants a tax on text messaging, charges may be applied to messages sent up to five years ago.

“Tax his food, tax his drink. Tax him if he tries to think. Tax his sodas, tax his beers. If he cries, tax his tears.” Is there a poem that better sums up the state of California right now?

State regulators want to introduce a tax on text messages in an effort to fund programs that make mobile phones services available for low income earners.

According to Fox News, “charges may also be applied retroactively to messages sent in the past five years.”
