    Unreal. If any of my tax dollars are given to this industry, I may just quit my job and live on welfare... It kills me that these men don't realize or choose to ignore the lives that are ruined everyday due to this industry. The men and women participating, the men and women watching, their spouses, the relationships that are ruined... So sad. Even the people participating do not realize that one day it will be their greatest source of regret and sorrow.

    Sorry folks, I used a (D)readed four letter word. I was saying this is becoming a joke along with a lot of other stuff in this country. I think we're well on the way to being the next major civilization to collapse under its' own stupidity.

    WITN moderator, why wasnt my comment posted? Everything I said was known fact. Larry Flynt IS apervert. HE WAS shot by a man using a Marlin .44 magnum. IDID think he was deceased. Wht in this is so offensive? I would really like to know. Do you really feel that your readers are that sensitve? Yet you were able to tell a GRAPHIC story about the man eating his eyeball.If news reporters ARE NOT CENSORED, then why are your readers?

    What can I say... Congress opened this can of worms. My meager montly earnings go to support all types federal incompetence. GM and Chysler all got a hand out, again, so what's to say the porn industry is any different. I want a @#^*$)& refund!!! Let the company's fail!!! This country's government was formed to protect the people from foreign governments and give them the freedom to prosper... not to rejuvenate the sexual appetite of America. Thanks for the oppurtunity to rant again!!!

    William - We didn't post your comment because of your choice of language, not because of it's content. Eliminate the one word and we'll post it.

    I had a chance to meet Nina in the early 1990's in San Francisco. Very smart, articulate, and friendly lady. And she is a staunch supporter of First Amendment rights. Would love to sit down with her and others in the industry for hour or two over coffee and discuss censorship and the disintergration of civil rights in the US.

    I am sure that the Democratic Congress has been supporting the Porn industry for years, just not officially. Relax, this is just a ploy by Mr. Larry to point out the lunacy of bailing out the big 3 and banks. let the hurricane seeds fall!!! hahaha
