Larry Flynt, the publisher of Hustler magazine says that in a nutshell, it's not for Congress to determine whether an industry is valuable or good for the people. Everybody wants a bailout right now, he says. And everyone should get one. Including him.
And this is where it gets really rich. He thinks that Americans are so stressed out right now that they can't even think about having sex. They need pornography in order to have a healthy sex life.
"Americans can do without cars and such
but they cannot do without sex. With all this economic misery and people losing
all that money, sex is the farthest thing from their mind...It's time for
congress to rejuvenate the sexual appetite of America. The only way they can do
this is by supporting the adult industry and doing it quickly."
Hmm. You're right, Larry. Nothing puts me in the mood like the words 'congress' and 'federal bailout'.
And we can do without cars? Really, Larry? Really?! That's good to know. The next time I need an ambulance and can't get one because congress gave the money to you instead of the the auto industry, I will turn on the Playboy station and thank you. And Congress.
It costs money to drive cars. Having sex is free, you idiot.
I think Larry Flynt and his peers should put their money toward less porn and more handbaskets.
They're going to need them. Really.
If Congress gives them the money, I'm moving to Canada.
Oh, and another thing. It was said that Americans need porn to have a great sex life.
On the contrary, Larry.
That's just you.
