    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....

    TY Jingleberry and as an volunteer outreach worker for senior citizens you cannot believe the misinformation these entities are frightening them with. I do not belong to a political party but am totally disgusted with the misinformation spewed about

    My 80+ yr old sister-in-law called me one day and told me that Bill and Hillary Clinton were wanting to be King and Queen of the World! Somebody had sent her some stuff in the mail and she had mailed them a couple of dollars and now she was bombarded with this kind of information. She is ALWAYS telling me that THEY are going to take away her Medicare and Social Security.

    I have not seen any adds in a very long time, maybe because I am always logged in and search the board after going to an e mail re- a thread I have answered. It is just weird that some people see them but I do not. (Not that I care)
