Blogs > It's Time To Take A Stand

Being a business theatre producer has allowed Brian the opportunity to meet and work with some very fascinating people from a variety of backgrounds which, in turn, has helped shape his knowledge and his opinions. His blog will not always be political, it will be about a lifetime of subjects, and nothing is off limits. “Few people have original thoughts, we are shaped by the people we know and meet” he says.

Truth in Advertising*

When you listen to all the political commercials on radio or television, you get the true sense of the values and morals each candidate possesses. Or do you!

According to many of the commercials, most of the candidates are either morally bankrupt, ethically challenged or just plain crooks.

On the local level, according to Democratic Rep. Gary Peters, Rocky Raczkowski is a crook who stole $6 million from his partners. Rocky Raczkowski wants Peters to stand on his voting record as a supporter of the Obama, Pelosi and Reid agenda. He voted for ObamaCare, supports Cap and Trade and more regulation of the American public. Peters ignored the majority he represents and voted the party line.

Then according the 27-term (D) Congressman John Dingell, (That was 27-term John Dingell) Dr. Rob Steele (Not a professional politician but a doctor) is selling Social Security up the river to private business. But it was Dingell's Democratic Party that during the 70s voted to take the separate protected money in your Social Security account and put it into the General Fund so they could get their hands on it. It was just too much money to not waste.

On the state level, we have Virg Bernero telling people that Rick Snyder did nothing at Gateway except line his own pockets with millions of dollars. Bernero is a career politician who will say anything to get a new job or keep his old job.

Then on the national level, President Obama's Democratic Party's latest commercials claim the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is accepting donations from foreign sources and lining Republicans pockets to buy the party. David Axelrod's, Obama's Senior Adviser, only comment on Meet the Press was, "Can you prove they don't?" Really, throw out a damaging statement and then ask them to prove the opposite. Classy, really classy! That is not the American Way. Prove you are innocent. No it is up to the Democratic Party to prove you are guilty. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce should file a class action suit against the Democratic Party for their Chicago-style thuggery.

Why don't Republican candidates answer with their own politically distorted commercials? Because they have character. They stand on principle that their opponents can't. They won't lie just to get or keep their job. It is that simple. They want to run on their record and let the voters decide. That is what a Democracy is. Letting the people vote based on their voting record or character, not distorted lies and innuendos.

Is there "Truth in Advertising?" Yes, most of the time, well some of the time, *Except in Politics!

Vote November 2nd but remember the commercials.

So much for giving up blogging.

Awesome post. Don't give up the blogging until Nov 3! Dingell has all the money and power possible, and he's hell bent on destroying the reputation of Steele, a respected doctor, business owner and community leader...all so Dingell can keep "his family seat". Lets hope people are paying attention.

Is Brian J. Jerks mentally ill?

Are you kidding? Republicans don't use attack ads because they are ethical? Baaaaaa hahahahahaha

Mr. Jerks, you must have missed the insane trash put out by the GOP stooge Schulte about Dave Leyton.

Furthermore, just recall what the psycho Mike Cox was putting out about the other Republicans running in the Governor's primry. LOL

Dude you must have memory impairment or you just like to lie.

There you go again, Anonymous. Resorting to name calling and expecting me to react differently.

The definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing and expect different results.

I am sure there are some Republicans (mostly RINOs) who will resort to half truth attack ads but most will not resort to that level of poor taste. I won't support them either.

We will just have to wait until Nov. 2nd to see how well they work. Have a great day.
