Some People Have No Shame

Now I guess that it goes without saying that people who pay other folks take their clothes off and umm uhh entertain have little shame, but this one takes the cake for me.

Hustler Magazine king and first amendment crusader Larry Flynt and the Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis want Congress to, in Flynt's words, "rejuvenate the sexual appetite of America."  I was unaware that the current bout of economic misery had affected sexual appetites.  Flynt seems to think it has and he has his hat in his hand in DC, asking for $5 billion in federal aid. 

I'm not sure it's any sillier than just writing a giant blank check for Wall Street moguls who then party it up at the St. Regis with our tax dollars.

honestly - are you just trying to drive me INSANE??? LOL - that really takes the cake. . .we've been joking at my house about who would be next to ask for a handout - I can honestly say, we did not think the sex-trade industry. :)

Your tax dollars subsidizing hookers and porn stars! I had thought the bar restaurant industry would be next, but now I assume pot dealers will want a cut.
