Smut Kings and Bailouts Gone Wild as Bailout Money Cannot be Accounted For!
Well, what do Porn Kings seeking bailout money have to do with being green?
First of all, bailout money which could be used to fund additional biofuel research would instead be spent on an industry that fuels the flesh. Would someone please tell me how porn bailout money is a green cause? Internet sales of pornographic DVD’s dropped 22% in 2008 and are expected to continue decreasing. This has much to do with the the current economic crisis (forcing consumers to shy away from unnecessary purchases, even porn) and that fact that consumers are accessing more pornographic content by way of the internet. The availability of food and alternative fuel research are far more important than the smut these institutions produce. Perhaps a new marketing strategy, focusing on internet sales and streaming vidoes, would be a better option than utilizing much-needed bailout funds for an industry that does humanity little good in the way of survival.
Girls Gone Wild CEO Joe Francis and “Hustler Magazine” publisher Larry Flynt have said they will petition Congress for financial aid along the lines of what the Big Three auto makers are receiving.
This is difficult fact for Flynt to come to terms with, insisting:
“Congress seems willing to help shore up our nation’s most important businesses; we feel we deserve the same consideration.”
“With all this economic misery and people losing all that money, sex is the farthest thing from their mind… It’s time for Congress to rejuvenate the sexual appetite of America.”
Francis takes it a step further, arguing that porno production and automotive production are not that different from one another as he suggests. (Source: Politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com)
Francis said that he and Flynt are seeking $5 billion and that they have sent letters outlining the proposal to Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and their local Congressman, Henry Waxman (D-California). Representative Waxman’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
If this bailout goes through, we the taxpayers will be getting into the smut and adult entertainment business, whether we like it or not. This is something I, and many others, are not prepared to do. As taxpayers we have a right to express our opinion about the usage of our hard earned money. These funds, with America so close to the brink of a total economic disaster, should be preserved for the real needs of Americans.
