Forget about pumping up the automotive business; it's the porn industry that needs some financial pull.
According to CNN, adult video sales are struggling with a downward trend in revenue.
As result, business executives are pleading for a modest $5 billion bailout
to keep business...
That is only around a fifth of the $23 billion the automotive makers want. Ford's Focus and Chevrolet's Tahoe are desperately needed by some to get to work. That
is, if you have a job in this economy, a marketplace that has gone... soft. (I'm here all week).
I'm not sure what the porn industry contributes to the advertising industry. But
advertising trade industry groups should be totally supportive, since U.S. car ad business isn't coming back anytime soon.
Encouragement is needed for a business has that been around
for centuries -- drawings in caves, I'm sure -- long before the automobile, or even the chariot, was invented.

"People are too depressed to be sexually active," Hustler
Larry Flynt said in a news release.
"This is very unhealthy as a nation. Americans can do without cars
and such, but they cannot do without sex."
So much for the theory that the porn business is recession-proof.
So, distracting activities are needed -- drivers can only speed so
much. It's one thing to be without transportation, it's quite another to go without satisfaction.
We shouldn't discriminate over what legal businesses in the U.S. are having trouble,
where U.S. workers can be laid off. Strippers and porn actors are now out on the street, just adding to unemployment lines -- along with all those double entendres. Auto workers are,
unfortunately, probably not too far behind.
But we don't hear about a bailout for TV writers, producers, and actors hit by the recession -- let alone those five hours of network programming
a week that have disappeared because of NBC moving the Jay Leno show to 10 p.m. from 11:30 p.m.
Who are we to say what jobs are right and wrong? Everybody gets a chance to fail
