  • Porn Industry wants bailout too!

    alriiiiiiiiiiiiiighty then. yep you read the title right...the Porn Industry is asking for $5 Billion from the federal government to bail them out.

    a $100 Billion a year enterprise is in need of a government bailout?

    give me a break!

    Make that a 88 Billion dollar a year industry, sales are down 22%.

    I read about this early but figured it wasn't really regular forum appropriate. (Especially for me seeing as I am basically on a probation and one slip up could get me banned, I didn't want to risk it)

    Funniest part is it's only Larry Flynt (Hustler) and Joe Francis (Girls Gone Wild), two of the most widely distributed and popular porn "franchises" in the world, that are asking for money from the government.

    It's laughably outrageous.

    Your link didn't work for me so here is where I read it

      Hey folks, this is a very "hard" industry to be successful in. I mean think of the cost, like the clothing....hmmm, maybe not; well what about all those expensive sets, like some dude's kitchen, or bathroom, or back yard, or roof, or ......., hmmmmm..

          You do.

          But seriously, there's no way they would do that, if they do, I'm moving to Canada.

            If the government is considering bailing them out, how do we stop them?

              Yessssssss.....I'm hoping they give them a 25 cent bailout just so that Katie moves to Canada!!!!

              And I can visualize the Broncos Country title as follows: "Katie Does Canada
              A Favour By Moving There"!!!

              AND.....if you move here, I can include you in the weekly "Greatest Canadian" article that started yesterday........so many possibilites.

              (You know I'm just having fun....nothing but respect):salute!:

                  God forbid they bail out something that actually benefits ME for a change.

                  If you think all those CEO's are any less of a scumbag pimp than Larry Flint then you are freaking kidding yourself.......

                    My sentiments exactly. But the porn industry also doesn't need it cause of this "recession", they need it cause there is so much free porn out there and file sharing. "Recession" didn't drop their sales, supply and demand did.

                      I refuse to believe that the porn industry actually needs a bail out anyway, they're simply thinking as anybody else is thinking: "Hell as long as they're giving these things out like Halloween candy it can't hurt to ask".......

                        I totally agree.

                        I personally don't see why we are bailing everybody out. I'm a little ignorant on the whole situation, but from what I can gather, we are bailing them out, but they will be going right back to bad business practices, and we will end up in the same situation in the future. Am I right here? I was totally against the wall street bailout, from what I knew anyway. Those loser CEO's still got there HUGE bonuses. What's so different between Larry Flint and Joe Francis wanting bailouts and these car company's and wall street wanting bailouts? Why stop here? Let's bail everybody out!!

                          I'm as ignorant as you, I've been told that these CEO's are getting to keep their jobs or even getting paid to go away.......something about golden parachute clauses. Basically they get to pretend the whole thing was just a bad dream or they get to wipe their ass with the whole situation on America's dime.

                          Somebody will come along and educate us both on "the real story", I'm sure, but they're wasting their time, I'm far too jaded to believe a word of it.......

                              I hope somebody with knowledge of the situation will come in here and educate us, I'd really like to know what's going on. Then something totally unrelated to this situation is, we've got this Bernard Madoff freak running around free when he should be in jail awaiting trial. What is going on out there!!??!?
