Rant - all the political ads during the olympics have caused me to finally turn it off

I get so aggravated that there are people who will vote for the republicans. I can not understand. But they do it anyway. Marco Rubio is a child who has no clue about this country or this democracy - they spew the same crap - they don't understand their policies and plans are ruining everything for everyone

The low wages - from lack of unions and people fighting for the workers
cutting everything at fed level meant the state level doesn't have money

the only thing that has trickled down is poverty

They are inconceivable and many adjectives I can not put here

the Olympics was enough for me to not want to watch it. I guess the patriotism shtick doesn't do much for me, I can't cheer for the USA like some kind of cheerleader. It is a big bore to me.

3. You are so lucky!

Try living in a swing state. Here in Iowa, the ads haven't stopped from a year ago, pre-caucus. All day, all night. TV and radio. It makes me so sick.
