Bush Administration ends up supporting the Internet Porn industry

In a recent press release, an independent organization of the Adult Entertainment industry is reporting that on-line memberships had a significant jump in volume as a result of the Bush Administration's economic stimulus package.

The story can be found in many prominent locations and was referenced today in The Huffington Post.

It appears that for many Americans, it wasn't the economy that needed stimulating.

According to Kirk Mishkin, Head Research Consultant for AIMRCo, "Many of the sites we surveyed have reported 20-30% growth in membership rates since mid-May when the checks were first sent out, and typically the summer is a slow period for this market."

Well, they are really coming around in the white house. They recently
announced that they were going to start looking for Bin Laden, I think that's a
good idea too.

I can only guess that the upswing in their capabilities is due to reaching the
term limit. I can only wonder what would have happened if the Bush
Administration's term ended a number of years ago.

btw, I consider the economic stimulus similar to the government raping you and
stealing your pencil, then giving your pencil back (um, thank you?)

... but I'm not sure the raping part of the comment can slide through without
more explanation.

Thanks to the fantastic work by John Curtis and his team, the node.js integration with Domino is going to be getting a rich security model. What we know is that a user's authorizations will be respected through the node.js application to the Domino server -- including reader names, ACLs, Roles, and so on. The way ......
