*Porn Industry Seeks Federal Bailout*

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/

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."
“We should be delivering [the request] by the end of today to our congressmen and [Secretary of the Treasury Henry] Paulson asking for this $5 billion dollar bailout,” he told CNN Wednesday.

I'm not against porn. But

I'm not against porn. But man is this getting rediculous! Not to say that it was'nt from the start but now everybody's hand is out. This is all taxation without representation is it not? All of our tax dollars going to places that the majority of Americans were against.and then a bunch of it going to other countries? Unbelievable...

Hmmm . . .

Will the taxpayers get an ownership interest?

some of us might not be happy

to get a piece of this pie.

it's competition

In the case of the porn industry, I've read that it is Youporn and similar websites that are killing dvd sales, not the 'economy'. The feeding trough line is getting pretty long.

too funny

thongs are getting expensive .

it's all just free market energy, I tapped into it once .

I found what people wanted and I exploited it made a bunch of money but didn't like myself in the morning so I let it go. people will always need their vices and it will always be a commodity.

The Porn industry

will probably get screwed.

Kudos to Flynt and Francis

Kudos to Flynt and Francis for the MSM penetration. Anyone care to guess how this story will climax? And does the porn industry really need protection or are they faking it? I'm sure these two are long for Washington's deep pockets. If the bailout is granted they will cream their competition!

Lmao!

Nice

You are...

TOO funny!!!!!!!!! "Cream the competition indeed!"

say what you will

about larry flint, but he has always been politically savvy. i am looking forward to the press, just to have the light shown upon the ridiculous bailout scheme.

and i am confident larry will point it out.

i love Larry Flynt

Trust me this has nothing to

Trust me this has nothing to do with money or a bailout.

Look at the History of Larry Flint and what the Governement put him through. He is doing this to be a pain in their ass and GOOD.

Go Larry Go a true patriot. I am not much into porn but I like Larry's stance when it comes to principle about the Government.

good point

Kevin Tuma also brought up this possibility just below on this thread.

LOL!

Funniest thing I've heard all day!

This MAY be tongue in cheek..

..On the other hand, he's a liberal Democrat, so you'll never know. Unintentional self-parody is one of their gifts.
