24. With all due respect
If this doesn't make a whit of difference to you, butt out. For some people, including a lot of people I care about, this is just another calculated insult to the very core of their being, holding up their identity to further ridicule and inviting some more abuse.

If the M&M/Mars company wants to sell candy bars, and wants to advertise to do it, more power to them. But do they have to injure a vulnerable segment of society to do so? Would you be more sensitive if the commercial portrayed unemployed persons in a negative light, and invited the public to sit in judgment of people who are out of work? Seems to me life is tough enough when you're looking for a job without some "stupid" commercial piling on like that.
