When i first saw it i knew right away it was right wing based, it's not about congress doing this and that, it's the fact that it's democrats doing it, the commercial wouldn't be there if it was conservatives in office.

I thought it was cute way to get across a message without demonizing a specific person or group (other than politicians in general)

Uhh try again it was brought to you by CWfA, right wing christian group against all LGBT rights including the right for gays to have sex in their own homes, are anti-choice, want abstinence only sex ed, love censorship, against stem cell research, want to lock pornographers in jail, they are the epitome of evil conservative garbage, and i don't see how you couldn't see who the video was going at, it was in fact a right wing ad.

This little play on words concept isn't new. I remember in the early 80's Hallmark sold these little jars of small candy with medicine names like "Damitol"

The United States <a href="http://nplusonemag.com/origins-of-the-crisis" target="_blank">borrows more money from the United States</a> than it does from China and all other foreign countries combined.

Lol did you really not read the very first thing i wrote? I'm pretty sure that the people that made or sponsored the ad, have something to do with it.

I thought it was a funny ad. Despite what the people who made it stand for, they do make some good points. The US is spending recklessly and we are putting a huge burden on the next generation. Plus, we are running out of money to pay back the people who have paid in to Social Security for their whole lives. It is a slap in their face that a couple weeks ago, we almost cut off their checks.

The United States has been spending recklessly since George W. Bush took office. That doesn't mean that Obama is absolved, but it is interesting that no one seemed to give a **** until he took office.

I don't care who wrote it. And quite honestly, every group out there has something I disagree with. Some of the things you listed I am in complete agreement with dispite not being a Christian woman.<br><br>
But keep it up. Your condescending responses bring people around to your way of thinking.

That wasn't the point, i agree with some of the videos points but why and what it's aimed at is the problem for me, i don't know why a group that is neither conservative or liberal couldn't have done it instead, and been referring to the whole government at all times not the democratic government in office now, anti gay groups have put on ads that make them look harmless but if you look beneath and see who they are by and what they are really about, then you see it's homophobic, so what you see isn't always what you are getting, i'm wondering how anyone would feel if it was brought to you by the milk corp, or any other group that hurts animals.
