Like many students, I ask myself if there is absolute truth. We doubt that nature presents to us a truth beyond our understanding.

During Christmas break I was watching the news one day, and I happened to see the special on the bail out requests by major corporations.

The blunder that was the $700 billion bail out for Wall Street will be around to haunt our generation for years to come, but now we have new bail outs to consider.

Among the most interesting bail out requests is that of the porn industry, which is requesting $5 billion in order to compensate for losses due to the economy. Yes, you read that correctly, the porn business has formed a joint effort, with Hustler as one of the leading crusaders, to get a bail out from the government.

As ludicrous as a porn bail out may sound, let us consider the pattern of the bail out system.

First, we had the Wall Street bail out, then the auto industry, and now there are literally dozens of major corporations seeking aid from the government.

These corporations, and in some cases groups of corporations, are requesting money because of the failing economy. So, if other businesses are able to get government money, why not porn?

First off, understand that I do not support the bail out system at all. I am merely using the porn industry’s request as an odd and interesting example.

I never supported the government bail out, and here is why: it completely contradicts the idea of capitalism. We are a capitalist economy, meaning that some people win and some people lose.

In the case of Wall Street, they gambled, got greedy, and lost big time. The auto industry had a mix of poor product choice and falling victim to the poor economy.

Now, because the government chose to bail out these corporations, there are many other groups lining up to receive some cash.

This is a prime example of socialism, meaning the government has heavier involvement in business to promote equality. Unfortunately, we are a capitalist economy and this bail out system does nothing but contradict the capitalist ideals our country is supposed to follow.

The bail out system, while it is meant to prevent severe economic loss, is only going to promote further greed and dependence on the government.

NASCAR has even received a government bail out, and that is the most popular sport in America.

NASCAR outranks any other spectator sport when it comes to fan base, and they make billions each year off of products and promotions.

Justifying the bail out of a sport is just plain silly, but unfortunately that is the way things seem to be going on in our economy.

The bottom line to this article is that any corporation, regardless of moral or sexual nature, seems to be eligible for a bail out.

If the government will bail out greedy Wall Street executives, there is no reason a bail out for porn should be ignored.

The bail outs themselves are ridiculous, but no discrimination can be shown when it comes to who gets bailed out and who does not. Let’s give smut its cut.

    Hi

    Tyler, let me see if I can show you some absolute truth, here. You DO see the pyramid scheme symbol on the back of the USA one dollar bill, right? You DO see the servitude infestation in capitalism, right? And do you see the “pay up or lose your wellbeing” Chicago mob-like felony extortion widespread within capitalism? Do you see the “join or starve” felony extortion done to the 18 year olds… by this ugly competer’s church called capitalism? See how forcing competer’s religions onto 18 year olds… kills membership in the cooperator’s church (Christianity/socialism)?? Do you understand that AmWay (American Way) (New World Order) got “the exclusive” (legal tender) on the TYPE of survival coupons (money) accepted in supply depots (stores) and leverages 18 years olds into the organization via that felony activity as well? (It puts AmWay-coupon slaving requirements called price tags… on all the survival goods). Do you understand how farmyard pyramids work… from your childhood?? Remember?? Upper 1/3 are “heads in the clouds” while the kids on the bottom ALWAYS GET HURT from the weight of the world’s knees in their backs? Still with me? Do you see anything illegal, immoral, or just plain sick… in any of this pyramid scheme’s activities?

    Us American Christian socialists are still patiently awaiting the natural fall of the pyramid-o-servitude, or the busting of the free marketeers felony… by the USA Dept of Justice. Us Christians are VERY CLOSE to issuing a cease and desist order until the servitude and inequality goes away… which means it turns into a commune. Commune is a word we LOVE when used in the word “community”… but its one the caps HATE when used in the term “commune-ism”. Go fig. PROGRAMMED!!

    If you please, do a Google image search for ‘pyramid of capitalist’ to see a full color picture of the con/sham exposed way back in 1911. Yet the caps bought into it, hook line, and sinker, and didn’t even check if a string was attached! Now THAT’S easy fishing, huh?

    Time to level the felony pyramid scheme called capitalism. Abolish economies and ownershipism worldwide, and hurry. Economies just cause rat-racing, and rat-racing causes felony pyramiding. BUST IT, America! Look to the USA military supply/survival system… (and the USA public library system) for socialism and morals done right. Equal, owner-less, money-less, bill-less, timecard-less, and concerned with growth of value-criteria OTHER THAN money-value. Quit doing monetary discrimination immediately, and make it illegal. There are MANY measurement criteria of “value”… not just dollars. Try morals, efficiency, discrimination-levels, repairability, etc etc. Economies are cancerous tumors, and to cheer for their growth… is just insane. Profiting causes inflation, so if caps LIKE inflation, and if they LIKE a terrible time in afterlife when they meet the planet’s ORIGINAL OWNER before caps tried to squat it all with ownershipism, then keep it up with the felony pyramiding. I dare you. While us Christians are finally bulldozing that pyramid scheme back to level, lets make servitude and “join or starve” (get a job or die) illegal in the USA, and lets level the architecture seen in USA courtrooms, too. Right now, USA courtrooms are church simulators or “fear chambers”, by special design. Sick.
