    Hey! Pornstars earn their money! The chafing alone is mindboggling. Five billion dollars would buy a lot of lubricant.

    More bizarre than asking for a bailout from congress?

    Seriously, I'm hoping that this request gets more attention and highlights the absurdity of all of these bailouts. The bailouts reward failure and punish success. The most obvious example is the auto bailout. Ford restructured and is working towards a longterm fix, so they didn't ask for any money. The cash given to GM and Chrysler will allow them to offer 0% financing on 60-month loans, something Ford didn't want or need to do. So, two companies that were in trouble due to mismanagement (both their own and congress') and which failed to respond to it effectively are now being given an advantage over a company that did its job.

    Sure - they earn their OWN money - not mine.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
