    Rant - all the political ads during the olympics have caused me to finally turn it off

    I get so aggravated that there are people who will vote for the republicans. I can not understand. But they do it anyway. Marco Rubio is a child who has no clue about this country or this democracy - they spew the same crap - they don't understand their policies and plans are ruining everything for everyone

    The low wages - from lack of unions and people fighting for the workers
    cutting everything at fed level meant the state level doesn't have money

    the only thing that has trickled down is poverty

    They are inconceivable and many adjectives I can not put here

    1. join the club, except just the fact it was

    the Olympics was enough for me to not want to watch it. I guess the patriotism shtick doesn't do much for me, I can't cheer for the USA like some kind of cheerleader. It is a big bore to me.
    Why do DUmmies hate the USA?

    The only political ads I keep seeing are either straight up Obama ads or anti-Romney ads. After all, it is is NBC.

    I just thank the good Lord that the Dewhurst/Cruz ads are gone for now. 20-30 per hour continuously for 30 days or more.....

    That is why I have not watched one second of the Olympics...I don't need to see the "Move Forward" ads inspired by the old MSNBC...

    I didn't like it at first, so now I just change the channel for two minutes. Working pretty well thus far

    My brother and his kids were visiting this weekend and we watched the Olympics most of the time, except for the 2 hours on Saturday that his oldest and I insisted on watching the Dr. Who specials on BBC America. I really didn't see that many political ads, at least for the presidential race. Our millage votes and congressional primaries are tomorrow, so there were lots of ads for those races and for the DIA millage. The race with the most ads I saw was the GOP primary for the Senate race, to attempt to unseat Debbie Stabenow. Peter Hoekstra and Clark Durandt are really going at it, too. I think Debbie will be re-elected, because of the support she will get in the two most populated counties.

    We have lots and lots of old movies on the DVR. We're all set.

    Why do DUmmies hate the USA?
    Simply because Conservatives love the USA. In their tiny brains, they cannot embrace what their mortal enemies adore.
