Before they get my money, they had better give me a lap dance, and make it damn good. LOL.

    Hey, why shouldn't they lobby for a bailout, too. It's not like the Democrats are not turning this "stimulus" spending into a feeding trough or anything.

    (paraphrasing Foxworthy) Wouldn't that be kind of like buying a used car from Budget Car Rentals? Would you really want to put your key in something that has been driven that long and that hard by that many big people?

    Re: Porn industry seeks federal bailout

    I think it's actually a pretty bold and hilarious move of the porn industry to ask the federal government for bailout money. I'm sure they'll never get it, though. Do they think we live in Europe or Canada or something? It'd be kind of like asking Pat Robertson to fund a gay pride parade. While many within the federal government may be avid porn enthusiasts behind closed doors, they would never openly support such a thing.

    I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility that Robertson might fund a gay pride parade. After all, Ted Haggard definitely would.

    And that is the key, we need politicians with spine, these representatives need to say, once and for all, "If you don't like porn you have every right not to watch it, outside of that, your neighbor has every right TO watch it, don't like it, too bad, next issue please". And back to topic, we don't need to bail any companies out, let the best companies succeed and let the market weed out those companies that are unwilling or too far gone to be viable.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Well, a large part of the problem is that giving the porn industry a bailout would be a huge slap in the face to every fundamentalist religious group and anti-obscenity group in the country. I don't think anyone in our government has the spine to stand up to those groups and it's very unfortunate.

    True story.

    And not just the religious wackjobs, watch penn & Teller bull****: War on Porn -- for some interesting "people" with interesting "views" on the porn!

    One lady calls it rape... and then suggests that because they shave their vajayjays that pretty soon men are gonna want child porn. Oh, and then she fears for what the men who watch porn will do to their daughters.

    P.S. She lectures at colleges...

There's too much product and too little shelf space and because of this, the porno industry is wearing itself thin. I don't see a bailout solving this problem. It is only going to give them a little more time before it all will eventually go down the drain. I also think it's hilarious that they would even try to ask for a federal bailout considering that the porno industry has been in a constant struggle with the federal government since the 70's on obscenity issues and whatnot.

    I know who you are talking about. I've heard of her before, but I can't remember her name. She's beyond absurd.
