F**k the Car Shield advertisement saying, “country is heading in wrong direction.” Go to hell, Car Shield because the country is NOT heading in the wrong direction, unless you count the increased homelessness due to shutting down long-term investments in savings and home mortgages, homeowner insurance increases in Florida beyond belief, deregulation, ripping off of employee pensions by CEOs and Republicans who stole the money to fund their 1000% increase in their revenues, and supply-side economics which has caused centralized control of business to the tune of destruction of small business, the fact the longevity of life in America has decreased below the Canadian model with its single-payer universal healthcare plan, Americans pay some three times as much as Canadians for healthcare and into the corrupt big pharma and health insurance businesses, destruction of FS&Ls and replaced with credit cards controlled by banks at the detriment of consumers (when someone cancels a credit card, they get their FICO score lowered), and………
All of this stuff began with Reagan who claimed “government is the problem.” So, if we think “we are on the wrong path,” then go to hell if you think that overturning what Reagan did to this nation.
Fact. A diabetes med in the 1960s was deemed to cause heart attacks. In the 1970s OUR GOVERNMENT, under FDA, advised doctors NOT to prescribe it. That was a good thing, but had no “teeth.” Doctors did not stop.
As a result, it caused the deaths of many Americans until, finally, in 1984 the FDA took it off the market. Yes,
In his 1981 inaugural address, Reagan claimed the government was the problem. Why? Perhaps because REPUBLICAN Nixon did not put teeth into enforcement towards limiting a prescription?
Take a larger look at this. It was Republican Nixon who was head of the government when the FDA did the “suggested” limited use of the med. Furthermore, it was Southern Dixie white supremacist Jesse Helms who also blocked Nixon from creating rehab centers for those on illicit drugs and stop the war on drugs. Racist bigot Helms was the bastard who blocked Nixon’s efforts to create small black businesses in North Carolina. It was Dixie white racist Helms who maneuvered to get the original Star Trek series cancelled due to a Martin Luther King Jr. approved inter-racial kiss (it put William Shatner on the street living out of a pickup truck). If anything, America applauded when Jimmy Carter and the Democrats took control in 1976 and all of a sudden Star Trek came back in movies and with The Wrath of Khan.
Mr Sleepy Ronnie in the Cabinet, WHO REALLY WAS THE PROBLEM? Sleepy Ronnie in the Cabinet worked to bring more and more white supremacist Dixie bigots into the Republican Party, plus to pave the road for fascist bigots with lots of money, like Rick the Prick Scott, Ron DeSantis, Mitch McConell, Matt Gaetz, Marjorie what’s her name, and others (as well as the Koch brothers) INTO the control of the Republican Party (Trump, too).
Now we have to listen to the bullshit of a commercial which says nothing about how we got to this point. The advertisement merely implies, by saying we NEED to make a better path in the USA, sound as if President Biden and the Democrats are at fault, not Sleepy Ronnie in the Cabinet and the Republican bigots with their “anything goes” friends like Rand Paul among the anarchists we like to call libertarians who likely do nothing to speak in favor of socially progressive ideas and push for centrally-controlled business-controlled nationalized business corporations which end up being nothing more than like a government-controlled centralized economic organization with communes.
These Car Shield commercials push panic buttons for a purpose. To help Republican leaders take over the government and shove down the throats Car Shield (and Chick-Fil-A) for putting hatred into the control of our society, whether that hatred be puritanical bastards who are against black people or gay people. There was a day when Americans could afford small business services called auto mechanics. Today, we are forced into nationalized companies like Car Shield. So, therefore, Car Shield has to defend its business with panic-button commercials such as those I heard this morning.
Goddamn it, I lived during a time when there was an oil embargo, gas prices soared and we worked to get around it, rather than blame Nixon and the Republicans. We developed car-pooling and other means to get around the high oil prices. Sad to say, but in those years, big corporate giant, GM, put a startup electric car business in Cortland, NY, out of business. That was bullshit on the part of GM. But somehow we did get by. We also had people who had been born in the late 1800s who did not like food stamps. Rather than use food stamps, they would consume only Quaker Oats oatmeal or even cat food. I took one woman to lunch various days at Phil’s Chicken House, a chicken in the Binghamton area which was a successful alternative to big corporate nationalized Kentucky-based KFC. The chicken was also from a mainstay in Upstate NY cooking, used at church and fireman’s days picnics. The recipe came from Cornell University. Most importantly, during the embargo, when my transmission went on my used car, my father could afford to find another one and get it replaced, by local mechanics. He did not have to rely on a big nationalized business like Car Shield. Car Shield takes advantage of big nationalized corporate business. It should NOT be allowed to put commercials on television which push the panic button to sell their services.
The reasonCar Shield (or even Chick-Fil-A) imply the Democrats are at fault is because they know that Joe Biden wishes to re-regulate big nationalized businesses and has made it known. Companies like Car Shield, Google, Microsoft, Spectrum, and others are all cowards running scared of the results. Car Shield gives fake panic buttons to Americans. Wrong. Chick-Fil-A bumps up its commercials because they are anti-gay and think the only way to have a successful family is to be heterosexual. Goddamn Chick-Fil-A for promoting that and not saying this in THEIR commercials. Let me tell you how a heterosexual marriage helped to destroy the idea of a family. Go to hell with traditionalist freaking lousy puritanical thoughts. People who say, “we don’t like it if there is someone somewhere having fun and happiness in life, unless they follow their dictatorial ways of a hateful god.
All of this needs to be stopped, as bullshit artists screw to the American public. It is called moderate, not in terms of politics, but in MODERATING what is being presented. This idea is not an idea to push censorship.
The government is not the problem. In fact, in order to protect voting rights, civil rights, human rights, the government plays an important role. Case in point, the diabetes medication which statistics demonstrated the number of deaths due to heart attacks. These panic-button-pushing commercials imply that the government run by Democrats is a problem while Republicans are above the law and are not the problem. Human rights. Human justice. It’s not politics, stupid.
There is a travel show which quotes Mark Twain. The quote is related to what I am saying.
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
