Eldad: Don't Pay State Television Tax

From Arutz 7:
"If only a hundred people let them know they are no longer willing to pay [state television anchor] Chaim Yavin's salary, they will confiscate their television and refrigerator. But if the 100,000 people who show up for demonstrations in city squares will refuse to pay the TV tax, it will become impossible to enforce this outrage, whereby we are forced to fund the production of slander against us. Citizens must inform the Broadcasting Authority that they are not prepared to buy for themselves the rope by which they will be hanged."
I have a better solution that does not involve breaking any laws: Just get rid of your television.

Didn't MK Eldad say something similar about stopping the Hitnatkut? They won't throw 100,000 people in jail...but they will beat up enough to scare the daylights out of everyone. (Like those black police uniforms?)

Kudos on your suggestion - why don't you write for A7? They accept guest posts...(I used to be a broadcaster for them :-)

Maybe if I write a long , well thought out piece I'll email it to them.

You broadcasted on A7? Wow!

CosmicX: In 1995 on the English Programming Channel. I did about 2 months worth of shows, and then ran out of time. We parted as good friends, with an invite to return whenever I wanted.

It was lots of fun when I had the time...

TV is good for folding laundry.

and I agree with Arye, we shouldn't support those unprofessionals.
