Cnn posted today that Larry Flynt and Joe Francis are applying for a porn industry bail out. All I’d like to say is, being a very small fish in a very large pond, how do I apply for my portion of the $5 billion should it be granted?
I’ve seen my income drop since late October. And this causes a trickle down effect in my home town. I can’t afford to go out and eat as often. We really watch our WalMart shopping expenditures. (Heh, its the only gig in town to shop at). Dollars have been taken out of the local economy, because I’m not making as much as I used to.
Now think if some of the huge companies are also seeing losses, and how much less that has put into the economy, and I can see how this would have an effect. Lets face it, a $12 billion a year industry is going to have a major impact on the economy in America.
I like what Flynt said:
But the industry leaders said the issue is a nation in need. “People are too depressed to be sexually active,” Flynt said in the statement. “This is very unhealthy as a nation. 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.”
Our husband and I have noticed this. We are working 12 hour days trying to get our income up. Heck, it is 10:00pm, and I’m still working and yet to kick back and relax. I look at naked pictures all day, and stressing out over bills has us getting down and dirty a lot less often then we used to.
I have a hard time believing this will ever be granted, but as one small timer who would like to open a paysite, and would LOVE to have the capital to do so, just let me know how and where to sign up…I’ll be there!
