    My city is a microcosm of that, we are a majority Catholic and the Dioses over here doesn't really get political, outside of societal/fundraiser kinds of things, but we have an extremely loud southern baptist church that makes things annoying. City of over 100k that used "community standards" to eliminate the legitimate selling of porn within the parish(county elsewhere), mid-eighties ban on MTV(that has since been dropped), tried to get Motley Crue banned because of the "Shout at the Devil" album, etc. etc. My city could get actual stuff done, but is too busy trying to pacify these jack asses to get real and necessary work done instead of passing stupid laws that limit freedoms and don't really accomplish anything.

    Or maybe Larry Craig could be tapped for some gay pride parade funding. Oh, wait a minute... he's not gay!

    Ted Haggard was the answer to a question on Cash Cab last night. I guess he truly has made his mark on history.

    Re: Porn industry seeks federal bailout

    I can see why people would laugh about something like this, but the sexy industry is rather large in terms of its annual revenue and the taxes the government makes off of it. If the economy begins to suffer then people on average will have less leisure money to spend on sexual entertainment. This in turns means a declining industry.

    I'm not sure why the porn industry deserves special treatment though. If the economy in general is hurting then usually everyone is hurting to some extent... why do some deserve a bailout while others don't?

    I believe it's the start of a lawsuit by Flynt to show the bailouts as unconstitutional.
    I hope he is successful.

    That's an interesting take, and I wouldn't put it past Mr. Flynt to pull something like that, if that is his game I agree with it.

    He doesn't like people who can't simply stand up on their own two feet.
