omg, yes, now we have heard it all.


"People are too depressed to be sexually active. This is very unhealthy as a nation. Americans can do without cars and such but they cannot do without sex."

And we need the Porn for sex? What, are people forgetting how to do it?

I was going to say no, but you might have something there, people might start hitting the cheap stuff to save money.

I just thought about cigarettes. What if people start quitting or cutting back because of the economy. What are the states going to do w/out all that tax money?

This could go on and on.

Come again?

The casting couch is legendary.

BTW, porn really was a major factor in the development of the commercial internet. Kinda makes you wonder what Al Gore meant when he said he was responsible for it...

People are taking this way too seriously. Flynt and Francis are doing what they do best (or second best ), by causing a stir and generating a lot of attention for themselves and their industry. Flynt has spent his entire life making a mockery of federal regulators and this is no different.

Probably true - but the fact is they are going to congress and the news is legit. I can only hope that this will stir up enough controversy that it will highlight the fact that these 'bailouts' cannot continue!
