The Porn Industry Wants a Bailout?

I’m feeling a bit cheeky from attending CES while there are adult film stars walking around all over the place.  (For those of you who don’t know, CES is held in Vegas the same time the Adult Video Convention occurs at the same location.  Egads).  That being said…

I know that you can’t believe everything on the Internet, but several sources are reporting that the porn industry is asking for a $5 Billion dollar bailout from Congress. 

I’m sick of the word bailout.  I’ve got to hand it to these guys they’ve done a good job of self promotion.  I don’t think pumping cashing into a limp industry trying to get it through soft times is the way to go.  Let them make the old fashioned hard choices and reform their industry for the future, not use the current economic environment as a backdoor for greed. 

I can tell you that if I was in Cleveland, or any other hard working town, I’d be pretty steamed if my tax dollars were used this way.  If Congress even takes a meeting with these folks, we should punch them donkeys hard.  It would be very hard to swallow injecting any form of subsidy into this industry.  I find it hard to believe that a few quarters of economic turmoil will bring the adult film ecosystem to its knees.
