I say go for it. The porn industry is hurting., like all other industries. Why not bail them out? If America is undersexed we've gotta do something about that because that can lead to other problems down the road. Flynt wants five billion? That's nothing, compared to other people that are being bailed out.

Considering the numbers of relatively deviant members of Congress and the Senate in recent times, I dare say they ought to get a fair hearing... :}

I'm sure they'll be happy to give their wad to the p0rno industry.

On the other hand (if you will pardon the expression), who buys p0rn these days?

They might as well try to bolster the horse and cart industry.

On the other hand (if you will pardon the expression), who buys p0rn these days? An astute observation (one only needs to reconfigure Google from 'safe search' to find out why. Or just subscribe to a usenet service. :uhoh:

What was the old saying in marketing circles? I think it went something like 'by word of mouth, a happy customer will tell another 3-5 potential customers, an unhappy customer will spread his complaints to 5-15 potential customers'. If porn is so expensive these days, it's only expensive to the 1 out of 100 who actually pays for it...?!

Hey, maybe congressmen get free subscriptions...?! :ok:

Haven't the US govt (just like the UK govt) spent the last few months bailing out a bunch of wankers? Can't see two 'Relief Facilitation' entrepreneurs making any difference.

They could call it 'Wankeraid'.

Wonder if I could get a bail out from the US Government? After all I am single handedly propping up the US economy via EBay...;)

Couldn't Larry Flynt just give his bank balance Viagra? That should get it back up...

If it gets down to a legal stoush then Larry will hope it stands up in court!

Amazed they have the balls to go begging. Congress shouldn't fanny about - they have the whip hand.
