You Can’t Buy Love

In some circumstances you might be able to do a short-term rental, but you can’t buy it. 😈

Every day my e-mail is primarily made of people wanting money for media buys. I have yet to see any of the ads that various groups are supposedly financing, so I can’t judge the efficacy of these ads, but the fact that I haven’t seen them indicates that they are not targeting people like me. Many of these e-mail appeals are bewailing the amount of money Republicans are gathering and possibly spending for their policies, candidates, and/or obsessions, but I haven’t seen any of those, either. From time to time I will see a reference to ads in a media report, but the ads themselves are apparently only for the media, not for peasants like me.

One of the latest crises was a special election in New Mexico that was going to be a total disaster if I didn’t donate money. The Democrat won by more than 25% without my money or the ad it would have helped to finance.

Another thing are the petitions that groups want me to sign. Who do they think petitions will influence? They are about as useful as suggestion that I contact my Congresscritter and Senators. Yeah, right, like my opinion is going to influence Matt Gaetz, Marco Rubio, or Rick Scott. Get real people!
