First it was the banks, then the big 3 American auto makers, etc. Towns, cities, and even entire states appear to be on the verge of bankruptcy and are asking for help from the federal government. But have you heard the latest industry to request a bail out from the government?
The PORN industry!!!
Yes, its true! According to this CNN article, the porn industry is requesting a $5 billion bail out. Picture me rolling my eyes and shaking my head.
Now, I like porn as much as the next 'mo, but this request is just taking advantage, and is clearly just for publicity. According to the article, "Flynt and Francis concede the industry itself is in no financial danger — DVD sales have slipped over the past year, but Web traffic has continued to grow."
In other words, they're just greedy and feel like grabbing some while the pocket book is open.
