    Now I'm not Talking about "You Deserve a Big Mac Today"... That's a Treat that one would Assume you Earned the Money to Treat yourself to...

    I am Talking about the Credit Debt Elimination Ads that say you Deserve to have the Debt YOU Created cut in Half in a Settlement.

    What kind of Societal Slug Hears this and goes, "Yeah, I do Deserve that!"?

    Some things are Left and Right... Liberal and Conservative.

    I Believe this is...

    I Hear the Ads more on Err Amerika (Before it's LONG Overdue Death) and Liberal Talk than I do Conservative, so the People who are Intending to Profit from this either Believe that Liberals are Gullible, or they Feel that they are More Likely to be Financially Down on their Luck and Conservatives are More Likely to be Filthy Rich from Big Fat Bald White Oil's Raping of Mother Earth.

    What do you Think?...

    If you are Liberal, how do you Feel about this?


    :)

    peace...

    That's the intrinsic meme of much advertising: I Deserve To Feel Good.

    WABC radio here in the NYC listening area and home of Limbaugh, Hannity, and Levin run those type of ads all day long.

    Yep - and the station runs the ads - not the syndicated program.

    Yep and some are very easy to influence by advertising.
    Peer pressure at work.

    The ads to "settle back taxes for pennies on the dollar" are just as bad, worse even.

    Mal, Suppose ads had fat, ugly people, dressed slovenly, and claimed too much of this food will give you heart trouble? And chances are our food ain't gonna make things better but so what. Soon you'll die away. Would that be more to your liking?
