Arrow Negative Adds

I am just about sick of seeing these neagtive campaign adds on tv everyday. They get nastier by the week attacking the other person . I for one cant wait for everything to be over with. Enough with the attacking commercials. I know we need a change but Im sick of she did that and he did that and so on. I not going to put names on this thread since that is against the rules. Just been on my mind lately. I want all to be over with soon though. Lets get back to our daily life without the usage of the proverbial garbarge.

Happens over here in Germany as well during campaigns in all parties. I always appreciate when candiates for a political jobs say more of the "I am good because" than of the "he/she is bad because of". But the latter is a lot easier than the former.

Again, it's a practice I find wouldn't make me enthusiastic about any of the indiviuals involved, for it's simply a way of avoiding talking about real issues and plans. But politicians often behave like schoolchildren these days. It's amazing they expect us to vote for them.

Well, I TiVo everything (and buzz through commercials), unfortunately, Negative ads are a part of politics.

Vote what YOU feel is right!

Red Day on Blue Street (Tony Banks)

They're kissing babies and telling me lies
They're taking over my television
They're making noises that sound so wise
Trying to influence my decision
Rituals old-fashioned
with speeches so proud and passionate
Hope reigns, fears rule
I may be crazy but I'm not such a fool
No such fool!

(CHORUS):
Red Day on Blue Street
And this world promises everything
Old shoes on new feet
Nothing Changes

Here comes a man with a face so sincere
Here comes another with power on his mind
Both with a want for a word in my ear
Both with a message of hope for my kind
Heads of this nation
Fight lies with misinformation and
This gives that takes
One or the other for the difference it makes
None at all

-(CHORUS)-

(BRIDGE):
We are the chosen ones
You have asked us to serve you
We deserve you


It's going the way that we said it would
We say that you never had it so good
No one's a loser who plays our game
The difference is clear, we just changed our name
Nobody knows that it's just the same

Red day on blue street
Or how about
Blue day on red street
It doesn't matter, it really doesn't


Somebody showing me the magical way
Somebody waving the key to my chains
They must believe I was born yesterday
They must believe I've got sand for my brains
Members historical
Woo me with words rhetorical
Blood runs, mud flies
Can't see a thing for the wool in my eyes
In my eyes


(CHORUS)

repeat and fade...

It is easier to fling monkey mustard, than it is to pour your own ketchup.

Is that Tony Banks solo? I still have to get into some of his solo work!

Personally, I don't watch TV while the ads run; only watch late night and usually go do something during commercials. Also, This is the first time in my life since I was able to vote that I'm thinking of not voting; but if you don't vote, you got no right to complain about the guy in office. Momma taught me that.

Very good advice from your mother - being able to vote is crucial, even if it's sometimes hard to choose between who to vote for, have your say! A pet peeve of mine is when people complain about government etc then say 'I didn't vote' - I just stop listening to them right away!!
