Florida’s proposed law to require bloggers to register with the state and includes the following:

“Compensation” includes anything of value provided to a blogger in exchange for a blog post or series of blog posts. If not provided in currency, it must be the fair-market value of the item or service exchanged.

I’m wondering what the fair market value entails. Does personal satisfaction count? What about the entertainment value of pissing off the the Florida GQP?

What’s the “fair market value” for an old ANTIFA writer who takes delight in bashing fascism?

According to the proposed law, “Elected state officer means the Governor, the Lieutenant Governor, a Cabinet officer, or any member of the Legislature.”

I don’t think the proposed law includes Meatball’s wife

What is the “fair market value” of giving Meatball the finger via Medium by comparing him to Florida’s perennial boogeyman?

Castro is as Florida as Miami.

And finally, let me include a meme of the author of the bill requiring bloggers to register with the state:
