At Last, The End…

Of junk mail season.  Oh, okay, election season.  And the end, however temporarily, of the same commercials flooding television, radio and websites.

This blog is a politics-free zone, so my complaining is strictly non-partisan.  Why don’t politicians realize that a rectangular chunk of high-gloss four color card stock has a very tiny chance of changing anyone’s mind on anything?  I can’t even shred it to put in the worm bin.  Those mailers go straight from the mailbox to the trash can.

TV ads?  Mute button.  Radio?  Off for a few minutes until the annoying ad has gone away.  Websites are a mixed bag.  My PC has ad blockers which work quite well, but on my phone I am blasted with the same commercial every few inches.  I’ve been trying out some alternate browsers, but so far haven’t found anything that I truly like.

Even worse than the candidates have been the issue votes.  We have a casino gambling amendment on our ballot, and after months of being barraged with commercials, I say a pox on both their houses.

But you know what is sad?  Tomorrow I’ll probably still get some stray mailers.
