Bailout for the porn industry?

I started laughing when I read this.

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.

But the industry leaders said the issue is a nation in need. “People are too depressed to be sexually active,” Flynt said in the statement. “This is very unhealthy as a nation. Americans can do without cars and such but they cannot do without sex.”

Can I say, WHAT? lol

I’ll be damned if they’re using my tax money to bail out the porn industry.

Don’t worry, Flynn…we’ll find a way to have sex. And without a bailout, thank you…Roanoker

Yeah, my jaw fairly hit the desk when I saw that one…

If the government bails out Larry Flynn I’m moving to Vanuatu.

I’m right behind you.

They’re just doing it to satire the whole bailout thing.

I certainly expected that was the case… but the article still made me want to smack someone! :smiley:

Ummm, why are they paying for the smut when it is free all over the internet.:shrug:

Talk about a missed opportunity for cleverly worded headlines…
