A hardcore loss for taxpayers

HT: Dust My Broom

Gov't pays for porn

Sex is not always a lucrative business.

The NDP government lost $10,000 after guaranteeing a loan to Queer Closet, a Sherbrook Street adult porn and gay store that recently went belly up.

Industry Minister Jim Rondeau said the loan guarantee was provided under a program to help young entrepreneurs who want to set up businesses in Manitoba.

Queer Closet sold lubricants, condoms, novelties and toys and rented gay cinema and adult pornography.

How is it that governments always seem to pick the stinkers? Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that any business remotely profitable would have to be insane to get into cahoots with gov't. Financial tarbabies like this have nothing to lose, so why not give it a try?
