Somehow I Don't Feel Sorry

I'm of two minds about pornography.

I don't like censorship and I don't like exploiting human weakness for money in the manner that pornography does, in fact I don't care much for pornography. (Have I ever visited such sites? I have in the past but I can honestly say it's not a habit or something I do now.)

Remember how file-sharing hurt the music industry?

Guess which industry is getting hurt now.

You guessed it if you said "Pornography."

I love this line

"It doesn’t make any sense!” Hirsch tells me a month later. It’s a hazy afternoon in June, and he is sitting behind his oak-slab desk, his eyes flickering between a pair of flat-screen monitors, one tuned to Bloomberg News and the other showing a YouPorn clip featuring a gaggle of naked women and an oxygen mask. “They’re giving porn away. You can’t make money on this.”

Nope. You can't make money at it. Too bad.

Couldn't happen to a more deserving group of people.

Oh shucky-darn! You mean the Porn Industry apparently injured because so many persons can find it for FREE on the internet, instead of purchasing or renting porn DVDs in stores in front of other persons?

Gee, let's see, which would YOU choose: your porn selection in PUBLIC, or your porn selection via the internet and, moreover, getting your videos and such for FREE?

Tough choice. So solly, Cholly.

I would choose neither, but I'm sure you know that, Shoprat. Glad you're not visiting those sites anymore. You've come a long way! :)

Well, I can't say I've never looked at girlie magazines...boys will be boys.

But I'm certainly not big on the porn industry today.

Have a good weekend, Shoprat!!

Maybe that's why Jenna Jameson, (rumored to be worth $1billion) is endorsing Hillary --on Hillary's own website!

Excerpt from above link:
” The Clinton administration was the best years for the adult industry and I wish that Clinton would run again. I would love to have him back in office.”

“….I look forward to another Democrat being in office. It just makes the climate so much better for us, …I think that getting Bush out of office is the most important thing right now.” Jenna Jameson

How proud the Hillary camp must be to have Jenna, a junkie/crack ho tattooed bisexual(read her bio on wikipedia) endorsing Her Hindness. You can’t make this stuff up folks. THESE ARE THE KIND OF PEOPLE WHO VOTE FOR HILLARY. Do you want your school system run by Der Hilly?????

Well, the recording industry and to some extent the "mostly clothed" film industry have fallen victim to the digital age, I suppose it's only fair that the video-pimps get to pay their share as well.
