Did you all hear about the Porn Industry asking to be bailed out?

Did you all hear about the Porn Industry asking to be bailed out?
I heard that on the news- the first thing that popped in my mind is I will be so mad if we waste millions to bail them out when we has so many other places to put out money

    There is a link to the article. I think it is ridiculous. Even if it is a joke, they are wasting peoples time even proposing it. Like congress does not have anything better to do than tell them they can not have our tax money to fuel an industry that shows 90% of 7-16yr olds videos of sex (and sex acts) online. In the article they quoted Flynt as saying, "People are too depressed to be sexually active. This is very unhealthy as a nation. Americans can do without cars and such but they cannot do without sex."

  • I thought it was great. Honestly, they're just trying to show how ridiculous the auto bailout was. Why shouldn't they be taken just as seriously? They are a multi-billion dollar industry and employ more people than your realize, just like the auto industry does.

  • Because we need money in so many other places then to go to porn, there are people starving about to lose their homes, job and so much more but you feel porn should be bailed out? There are so many better things to do with our money at this time... any other time maybe but not now

  • I didn't think they were joking or making fun of the auto bailout. I hope that they were because I was like "you gotta be kidding me". They said that people are not spending money on porn now because they don't have the extra money from how the economy is so they need help. That's crazy.

  • Heck, go for it. If the bank, auto industry and whatever else needs to be bailed out, why not the porn industry. They have as much right as anyone else. JMO

  • I think they're just trying to be funny and trying to make a statement. Leave it to Larry Flynt to cause a ruckus!
