    Political commercials.

    Every single one of them. I actually WANT to see a McDonalds commercial, anything, something other than the constant barrage of 'He's a sleazy liar', 'She took $600K', 'Our healthcare will be gone, we'll all die', blah blah blah...always attacking the other candidate...

    Same commercials, over and over...sometimes even TWICE during the same break. Friggin' endless, redundant brainwash...enough already.

    The Democrats have such a lock in California, all we get is the propositions. There's even one to eliminate putting up money for bail.

    At this point in time, to coin a phrase, anyone who has not made up their mind, is truly a flake that shouldn't vote anyhow. It's very simple. Constitutional Government, or Communism. Back to the business of freedom. Or down the sewer of ruin and degradation. Live or die, make your choice.

    Win or lose, Trump could put the economy back together, slow Joe can’t string a sentence together. If he wins, it will be an epic cluster frack. Come to think of it, who would really want the next 4 years, only adults can put it back together again, the petulant children can’t do anything except destroy.

    Here they run them back to back. 1st commercial he/she is Satan’s spawn. 2nd commercial he/she is walking on water. Or the reverse depending on who is paying for the air time. Accept for a half hour of local news twice a day I hide out on Netflix.

    We cut off everything except local channels a year or two ago. No "cable news" 24/7. Even then, we only watch the local news. The last month or so has been really tiring. I now look online for the weather and ignore the TV completely.

    The sad part locally is we won't be done until Jan unless a miracle happens. One of our senate races is a "jungle" race. All candidates from both parties are in it together. There are 6-7. Unless one gets 50% + 1, the top two go to a second vote. Very likely. It's also likely that it'll be a dem and a rep as each side is splitting it's votes.

    The outside money will be flowing freely. :(

    That also means the whole country could be waiting to see who controls the senate...

    I watch 1 hour of tv per day.

    Adam 12 and Seinfeld. They most advertize odd B products during those shows :)

    That's what a DVR is for. I never watch anything live. It is always delayed at least 20 minutes.

    If everything said by every candidate were to be true about he opposition, we’d have politicians that are actually delivering cans of gas to protesters, spending every thin dime of social security benefits, denying any sort of healthcare to everyone including babies and children, actively spreading Covid 19, and becoming incredibly wealthy by taking corporate payoffs.

    Enough already. I’m scheduled for a colonoscopy on November 4th. It just seemed appropriate.
