I AGREE, WITH OR WITHOUT FUR!!!!
Now, for opinion time. Being the football junkie that I am, and past postings have acknowledged - Super Bowl XLIV will be airing a week from tomorrow - with ALL the "over the top" expensive commercials that that entails. I'm sure most people have heard about the Focus on the Family $3million ad featuring Tim Tebow and his mother - a 60 second PRO-LIFE commercial at that.
First, I am not a Tim Tebow fan...I think he is a pussy! The fact that his mother was told to abort him, so many years ago - should remain a personal matter and NOT one to be aired by FOF via the Super Bowl.
A good many people watch the Super Bowl for "commercials" alone - to either get a good laugh, or feel the impact of a possible new purchase. Politically motivated agendas SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO AIR during this time.
How about this...if these cash strapped people desire money over ideology......then allow ads countering the view to appear as well. Ahhhh...but that wouldn't work would it? The religious right must have $$$$ hidden all over the place that they just don't know what to do with, so choosing a sporting venue seemed like a GREAT idea!
Now, I read that Sarah Palin (GAG) has opened her mouth on this issue as well. She feels that an ad such as this should "empower" women, and can't understand why NOW is against the commercial. Can I say DUH loud enough here? "Sarah dear....women are already empowered enough, to realize that you are so out of touch, and you have no clue of what comes running out of your mouth!"
And by the way....a gay dating commercial was REJECTED by the powers that be, for the Super Bowl. Talk about fucked up agendas.
My preference.............NO POLITICAL ADS DURING SUPER BOWL............NO IDEOLOGICAL OR THEOLOGICAL COMMERCIALS DURING SUPER BOWL!!!
And Tim Tebow........I really hope when the NFL draft takes place - your name is forgotten!!!
Theson received a call yesterday alluding to his leaving today for Spain for a two month job. By last evening that particular job had been filled, but he will more than likely leave this week sometime for a different job, also in Spain.
I have enjoyed having him home and helping me so much since I chose to have my heart attack in November. (Nahhh, I didn't really choose that.) We have accomplished some cleaning chores around the house, had so many laughs...these are what I miss most when he is gone. Although we Skype regularly (when is in a foreign places), it can be fun - but getting the hugs while he is home are far better. But I'm not selfish...he needs to do what he does best!
That's enough for this day...have a great weekend all...I'll catch ya...later.............
