Finally a bailout that makes sense...???

Quote:
The pornography industry is the latest to seek a federal bailout, with the heads of Hustler magazine and Girls Gone Wild saying they'll ask Congress for $5 billion, according to a blog report.

Yeah I saw that yesterday, I don't think they are serious, they are just doing it because everyone else is. There is no way the government would ever give the porn industry a bailout. If they did I think the general public (and me) would be extremely upset.

The porn industry is probably the only one still doing good during these hard economic times. My wife was looking at job openings in our area the other day and she said there were ton of openings for strippers. Apparently business is so good they need more.

I can't help but wonder if that has anything to do with all of the money Government has been handing out lately.

I think it makes a good point about how stupid this whole bailout thing is becoming. I read an interesting blog post the other day about how its very un-capitalist I have to say I agree.

$4 gas had to do with us pissing off the Shieks.

It's like having the neighborhood store owner charging all of the parents in the neighborhood an extra $2 for a pack of cigerettes because the neighborhood kids are playing cops and robbers and keep breaking things on the store owners property.

It does make everyone else asking for a bailout seem a little ridiculous by ruining the concept. Kind of depressing state of affairs.

I saw Joe Francis (Girs Gone Wild) on the news saying "As long as the government is handing out money, we'll be here to take it.".

I thought that was pretty funny and probably would have said something along the same lines.

There's soo many people who will blindly pay taxes and sit in their homes bitching and moaning about who steps up asking for the tax money, and the people they cry about are the ones doing exactly what they should be doing whether we agree with what they want to spend the money on or not.

We should quit worrying about what everyone else is trying to get ahld of tax dollars for, and start pondering what we could realisticly do with some of those dollars and how to go about getting them. :D

It's no big deal, the government can just print more money and get further into debt: "ZEITGEIST: ADDENDUM"

"What do you think, money grows on trees?" should be rewritten to: "Who do you think you are, the federal reserve?"
Interestingly enough, some origins of money were as a representation of debt...perhaps, like our languages, our understanding of value is skewed, and inherently not universal.
Do we ask the bees and other insects which pollinate how much we owe them? (interestingly in China humans were sent to do the bees' work) What about the plants?
How much will the air cost us? What about the water?
We can compete for resources all we want, but we MUST share to some extent. We might as well be responsible in our behavior, respecting the infrastructure which allows our well being, and cooperating whenever possible; and, yes, even at times compromising our desires to help others fulfill their needs.

Time to bail out the Earth.
Time to have truly responsible, honest, efficient, effective recycling.
Reduce consumption, reuse what exists, and recycle what is broken beyond repair....for after all, like everything in the universe: recycling will happen...eventually.

I don't think they would get what they are asking for.
Goodluck to them.
