Porn industry seeks federal bailout

We've bailed out crooks. Why not porn stars?

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Another major American industry is asking for assistance as the global financial crisis continues: Hustler publisher Larry Flynt and Girls Gone Wild CEO Joe Francis said Wednesday they will request that Congress allocate $5 billion for a bailout of the adult entertainment industry.

“The take here is that everyone and their mother want to be bailed out from the banks to the big three,” said Owen Moogan, spokesman for Larry Flynt. “The porn industry has been hurt by the downturn like everyone else and they are going to ask for the $5 billion. Is it the most serious thing in the world? Is it going to make the lives of Americans better if it happens? It is not for them to determine.”

Francis said in a statement that “the US government should actively support the adult industry's survival and growth, just as it feels the need to support any other industry cherished by the American people."

LOL, you posted that!!!???

I saw this and almost posted it but thought, nah....

but hey, this is a huge economic booster to the LA area.

Exploiting runaways, young kids, turning them into sex workers....oh yeah, huge industrial sector, why even AT&T is into the game.

I'll bet they have friends in high places and get some money.

Which is another question, why is it legal to do it on film but not in person?

In my opinion, how many photos, video tapes does one really need? I guess billions!

Oh yes, we just cherish the porno industry. While during the Thanksgiving dinner, Mom & Dad reminisce about the good ole days of betamax and how it make their life so much more meaningful.

I think it's a joke, bailing out the Porno industry

but one cannot tell these days! One would have thought great balls of laughter would have occurred when Congress was supposed to hand over $700 billion dollars.
