    Larry Flynt is a hoot. One of his favorite pastimes is skewering hypocritical politicians. No matter how you feel about porn, you gotta love that about him. smile

      I gotta agree with that. He's successfully pointed out just exactly how silly this whole bailout thing is.  The problem is, rather than admit they look silly, the politicians will likely just give him is five billion.

    We've been talking about this at work.  It's hilarious, because Hustler makes a LOT of money via the Internet.  By a LOT, I mean whole buttloads.

    It's true, though, that regardless what industry you're in, everyone's taken a hit with the way the economy has been for a long while now.  The adult industry gets hit in odd ways, but we're seeing it a great deal more lately.  For example: the latest adult industry trade shows in Vegas are seeing lots of cancellations, and we're being told about them here at my office in trying to set up meetings, simply because they can't afford to go out, rent a booth AND pay for hotel, airfare, per diem, etcetera.

    A five billion dollar bailout isn't going to solve the issue, though.  It's just going to get the extreme heat because it's about boobs and bangin'.

    I just think some people on hubpages really, really must need the money...haha...or want it.  I think maybe they'd do well to perhaps study Mark Knowles method on hubs and the internet.  It just could... be beneficial.  I remember him saying he made something like $144,000 last year from his sites.  And business is business, wink

    omg!
