    We all know that advertising pays the bills..however i am totally offended by the anti Obama advertising now carried by this site. I realize it is due to the Citizens United ruling where All of the huge Corporations can spend as much as they like..and it looks legitimate..however it is very offensive to see a decent site like this carry these ads as if they are creditable

    I noticed this too and agree with you. If we have to have political ads, shouldn't there be equal opportunity for the bashing?

    Please PM me the ad text and the domain name of the ad. I'll try to filter it out.

    Thank you..many of us that enjoy this site are retired and do have medicare and social security..unfortunately the Big Pharma and Health industry has put out so much information about the new program..many folks are frightened..this is why i am soooo offended

    Guess I have enough ad blocks on my computer because I don't see any of those.
    To be honest...I don't look at any of the ads (I know they fund the site..sorry....)
    I come here to see & hear about quilting....
