Hot damn. I'll run on down to get my own federal bailout if they can get one.

I wonder why porn would need a bailout...Things like video games have been doing well because people seem to be looking for enjoyment to distract from the economy...So you would think that porn would go up too

Because people don't have the money these days to buy porn or video game. People need their money for bill and food. I won't be surprised if the video game business goes down too because people ain't going to fork over $50 buck for one game where they can uses that money for something more useful like putting food on their table for their kids.

Despite the financial crisis, there are always going to be people who are willing pay $39.99/month so they can log in and get off. With countless sites, how much of a financial problem could the porn industry be in?

People are spending money on video games though...They have gone up while lots of other things are going down...Which is why I find it odd that porn is going down

It will go down like everything else will but people won't stop gaming or buying new games.. Also the video game industry is going into a few dry months right now due to lackluster titles. It will be worse in the summer like always.

As for the porn industry, well I am pretty sure they been hurting due to the internet. Personally I find porn to be meh it has never done anything for me.

Because they want some of that "Free" Government money.

IF they need cash, they should all go to a sperm bank and donate sperm. If it helps, they can bring their cameras along! :D

Honestly I see this as nothing more than just some political commentary, the porn industry knows it doesn't need a bailout. The price for porn is relatively stable across the boards, and it is usually one of the first things to react to new technologies. (Frankly, one of the reasons for high speed internet today is the porn industry)

This is just some amusing publicity on Larry's part.

Regaurdless of what I think about porn, I don't think they should. I don't like anyone being bailed out because we've already put so much money into that and it's not working.

Couldn't have said it better. I think it's actually rather amusing. We know and they know they won't really be bailed out, but it could be worth some laughs.

So, that said, it has my full support :p.

You guys all seem to think PORN costs anything

I'm not into (thankfully) But I just have to turn on a television or type in certain words on google. It's really not that hard to get.

If you want you can pay 6 -10 bucks to see Zack and Miri in theaters. ( I reccomend you don't)

But seriously, you can find it on the internet, go to a bar/club, and find it for free.

And there is probably an INCREASE in people buying drugs, beer, videogames , distractions, BECAUSE of the economy.

It's America 101: We fucked up. Let's go distract ourselves with something and ignore the fact we are MAKING IT WORSE.

It's like smoking. Someone smokes cause they think it's cool, or they need a release. They realize one day (they all do, no exceptions) that they made a mistake. Hardly any of them DO anything about it.

Here's another example; People are going bankrupt. They *still* buy cigerettes and beer/drugs/games/porn/w/e their gig is, REGARDLESS of the economy. Because people are stupid.

And that's the word......Hahaha Steven Colbert.....

No matter how bad the times get, people are never going to get smarter as a whole. I hope for the individuals who will.

It depends on what you think is happening in this country.

If you believe that we are witnessing a desire to the socialist Left, then yes, industry should have no bearing on reception of government funds.

If you believe that we have a Plutocratic society - that the politicians are so far "in the pocket" of select industries - then, no.

If, however, you believe as I do - that if we're going to go down this road, we must use taxpayer money as investment, then I propose yanking support for domestic traditional automakers and investing in innovative automakers (e.g. Tesla Motors) and ... porn!

I want a "bang" for my taxpayer buck, you see. :D

As it is, I've made a 50% profit on my investment in an auto-tool company's stock (I figured if the bailout happens and credit become freer, more cars will be on the road ... if the bailout doesn't happen, then people will need to keep their cars longer; it seemed logically sound at the time) and would happily invest the rest of my money in alcohol, porn, and flat-pack (cheap) furniture if I had more liquidity (read: were I wealthy).

Yes, I understand GameStop stores here in the US did very well during the holiday season which caused their stock price to go up, while other store's stocks went down due to lower sales.
