Congress Prudish on Porn Bailout

1/8/2009 1:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Francis and Larry Flynt have a hard battle ahead if they plan on getting any bailout money from the government -- because based on the responses of several congressmen -- and even a senator -- who were out in D.C. yesterday, nailing down support is gonna be a lot tougher than getting drunk girls to take their tops off.

I love this story and Larry Flynt is awesome. What a joke are Government is, now we can watch them pick and choose who and who not to bail out by if it will benifit the corrupt gov or not. I bet Flynt and Francis know some dirty old polititions they can black mail for some bail out money. Keep up the fight!!

BAIL OUT PORN DEALERS....NO FRICKIN WAY! IS THAT STUFF ESSENTIAL FOR OUR COUNTRY TO RUN??? NO AND ANYONE WHO THINKS THIS IS A VIABLE AVENUE TO SUPPORT FOR A BAIL OUT HAS LOST THEIR MIND. STOP THIS BULLCRAP ALREADY. JUST BECAUSE THE PORNIES CAN'T MANAGE THEIR MONEY...TOO BAD! THIS WHOLE SYSTEM IS OUT OF HAND. THIS WHOLE COUNTRY IS BASED ON TAKING TAKING TAKING. WHAT HAVE THE PUT BACK INTO THE SYSTEM? ALL US CITIZENS NEED TO RISE UP AND FIGHT FOR OUR LOCAL, STATE AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO START MANAGING OUR TAX MONEY PROPERLY AND STOP PUTTING IT INTO THEIR POCKETS. GOD, THIS WHOLE SYSTEM MAKES ME WANT TO SCREAM...MONEY GRUBBING LOSERS!~

Why not? Our brilliant politicians bailed out American Express after they quickly and conveniently changed their status from credit card company to bank. They bailed out the US automakers who pay their union workers nearly double what they should. They are bailing out all kinds of companies that should be allowed to die. Whose money are they using? The small guys - taxpayers - you and me! Why not bail out the porn business? Larry Flynt and the Girls Gone Wild guy are smart enough to see how totally outrageous and idiotic our politicians' behavior has been. Let's direct our anger at the right people - those freaking imbeciles in Washington!

This reminds me of an CEO who once mentioned that US has become an entertainment economy, what all people do these days is only entertain themsleves, that was perhaps institutionalized and made respectable by Clinton I suppose, who provided months long public entertainment by his hand job show in the Oval office.
I think the Porn insdustry patriachs had certainly made their point by bringing the needs of porn industry at the forefront, it does make the point that these have now become things of national importance over education, health care and suchh basic human rights that enable people to be humans.
Once you become super developed country you become indistinuishable from a banana republic economy.

TMZ you guyz got to get a better camera man. Jeez this dude sound so stupid everytime he opens his mouth and yet he is usually the one asking Political figures questions.

He actually said the economy is "soft" right now. No wonder the second distinguished gentlemen in the video stated he didn't understand him.

A strong union is a strong country...without the union a real money job that a family can survive on, america is over.Union busting kichen cabinet(SS) presidents owned by big biz shifted our jobs to china.We can have have built better product than any country in the world or space that we know of.Big biz sold off america and blames the unions that ronny reagan SS kichen cabinet busted apart and thus the fed didn`t inforce the trade laws.Now the 1% runs the world and still blames the unions.Hollywood is a union town and runs the world`s entertainments like no OTHER.... a strong union means a strong country and hollywood`s unions are a living model at that at work.Stop buying china lead TOY~SS and the country you save could be your own.

Even the site you are writting at TMZ is run by hollywood union People that give you the freedom to write here and that help provide the internet.The problem is even people like reagan turn on the union that built him....Hollywood would fall apart without the union and the airways were safer with the union.unions don`t over pay anyone-the market place has fallin apart and has to be rebuilt...changes makes for a changeing market place and people get displaced and so on.Jobs go away countrys fall apart but cheap labor will only put you in a slave camp in china full of lead...Unions saves lives makes for a safer workplace.Retool start over start up...free trade for small biz not college`s owning all patents for nothing by SS kichen cabinets.A even playing feild is a must for america`s to have build and live in.
