The Porn Bailout?!

This is fucked up.  Via HuffPost:

An article in next month’s Atlantic asks, “Is porn recession proof?” According to porn magnate Larry Flynt and “Girls Gone Wild” king Joe Francis, the answer is no.

TMZ reports that the pornographer pair is heading to Washington to ask for a $5 billion porn bailout:

“With all this economic misery and people losing all that money, sex is the farthest thing from their mind,” Flynt says. “It’s time for Congress to rejuvenate the sexual appetite of America.”
Francis sees his industry like the big three automakers, only BIGGER: “Congress seems willing to help shore up our nation’s most important businesses; we feel we deserve the same consideration.”

Or perhaps its brilliant?  Will congress open their eyes to the insanity of having taxpayer money fund failed businesses?  A Democratic congress would be handing their seats to religious conservatives by passing this.  But by not passing it, they are sending a confusing message to the business community.  Both the car industry and the financial sector are crashing because they got greedy and made huge mistakes.  As news organizations being posturing for a bailout (over their industry’s central role in our civic life), other companies hit by the recession will start looking for a piece of the pie (most certainly retail).

Congress would be advised, regardless of their course, not to give  Joe Francis (convicted on charges of child pornography and prostitution, and accused of sexual battery and on another occasion rape) the time of day.  If I were a Senator I’d kick him hard in the balls on sight.  The positive political capital would more than balance out whatever I’d have to pay in the resulting civil suit.

  2. kicking them hard in the balls, would only generate a preejaculation! :}:}
    the whole thing looks rather funny to me. i mean, being able to not give a fuck about the economy and the national crisis shouldnt be a luxury just for the politicians… sexual-convicted-business-men, should enjoy this privilege too :}:}

  3. Dan – good to read you again.

    Flynt is a publicity hustler.
