1st political commercial about the debt

I just saw a political commercial talking about how the government is trying to take away social security. I guess its time for the political commercials to bombard us with a bunch of mess for the next 1 1/2 years. We won't know what is factual and what is fiction.....assuming we know anything close to the truth anyway!!

They've been playing an ad here that states children are going to starve and go without education due to budget cuts. My thought was isn't it the parents responsibility to feed their children not the states? Ditto pre-school education.
Social security on the other hand we were forced to pay into from the time we started working so taking that away would be bad news for most of us drawing it. We saved what we could for retirement but the money withheld for social security reduced our ability to save.

We are getting at least 2 to 4 calls from presidential candidates and/or to participate in surveys for weeks now. Our penalty for our state having the first caucus in the U.S.A. It has gotten to the point that the day after the presidential election candidates are trolling the state for support. Never ends.


I haven't seen any commercials yet - nor heard any on the radio - I get irritated enough over the commercials suggesting we all run out and apply for food stamps so we can eat better.

I need a bigger chimney.
