    Default Guess who else wants a bailout?

    Following the Auto and Banking industries, the Porn industry has decided it too has been hit by the economic slump. How sad, does this mean less Girls Gone Wild commercials at night?

    Well thats what I do normally.......

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    How else are they going to keep their videos at the cheap price of 9.99$ + shipping and handling?

    Your lack of concern is at best unpatriotic, at worst unmanly.

    That's Drone, not Lemur.

    Anyhow, if you throw a bunch of freaks and deviants together and encourage them to look up "News of the Weird," of course they're gonna uncover everything weird first. Ain't no diesease, just common sense.

    Stop giving money to rich old white guys, and start buying businesses instead. Then you'll save the industry AND collect the profits later on.

    How hard is that to understand, really?

    Couldn't agree more!

    I think the bailout request was more a political dig than serious request

    From the article
    Flynt and Francis concede the industry itself is in no financial danger — DVD sales have slipped over the past year, but Web traffic has continued to grow.

    A considerable percentage of the world population considers that the exports of that said industry is probably the only/one of the few good things that come out of the US of A.

    Its also a net exporting industry in times when the US trade deficit is the size of Adrianna Sage's bum.

    If I had known this would generate comments, I would have started a thread instead of NotW'ing it.

    Overall, I think the industry in question is sound. This is just Larry Flynt being Larry Flynt, trying to get a rise out of Congress, making a point and trying to show how ridiculous the bailout mania is. If the public ever got an actual full accounting of how the TARP funds and the AIG loans were spent, there would be probably be riots. This was just one final raid on the Treasury by the administration for their buddies, and Congress fell for it.

    Reinvent the British and you get a global finance center, edible food and better service. Reinvent the French and you may just get more Germans.
