Obamacare Ads

For real!

For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.

Wow.  Notice the racial composition?  Only one non-white.

So Obama thinks young women are just drunk sluts.
Obama thinks young men are drunk idiots.

It's an appalling world we live in today. In the 1960s some of our parents worried about changing mores warned us about a slippery slope. They were right. Society's gone over the edge.

Not even very good looking girls.

Remind me of the ones people would refer to as "Penicillin."

Are the millennials so stupid that they will fall for this?  They can get their birth control pills at Walgreens for a lot less than their monthly Obamacare premium would cost.

Speaking as someone who falls right in between Generation-X and Y (millennials), I can say that many will fall for it.  Their attention span is about 5 minutes.  All they care about is themselves, being taken care of by someone else, having fun (aka hooking up), and wasting time on social media.  Of course there are plenty of others who will not; not everyone 35 and younger is stupid.

"Do you got"??? Really?
Grrrrr.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

This is not going to work... at all. My generation may be stupid, but they're far more altruistic than most give them credit for.

They could easily target this generation with something like:
"By buying health insurance, you make it easier for your friends with health problems to pay for the health care they need to stay alive and healthy. Plus, you never know when you might have health problems of your own."
Perhaps even tie it in with the Christian moral of healing the sick. That might work with this generation.

They may be idiots when it comes to politics but they are not hedonists by any stretch.

It's like the scene in "Hard Day's Night" where they are talking about the teen dance show hostess.  They turned down the volume and said rude things.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Good to hear.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

We are the people our parents warned us about. : /

I worked in the Advertising/Motion Picture Industry for many years.. including Hollyweird. It made my stomach turn, literally. Ultimately, the money couldn't even keep me. The culture of decadence. *spit*

Good money? You got to be camera or lighting.
