  1. Those CPCs are fully as slimy as I expected. Disgusting to use such tactics on people going through a difficult time already.

    But perhaps it's a positive sign that find it necessary to hide what they really are in order to get people in the door.

    Thank you for doing these round-ups. There are a lot of stories I wouldn't otherwise have known about.

    1. Infidel753 -- For a crash course in dubious CPC tactics, check out the documentary "12th and Delaware"

      Thanks! I'm glad you enjoy the news and commentary tidbits. Oh, and thank you for sharing one of my posts at Crooks and Liars this week.

  2. Agree with Infidel about the CPCs. Disgusting. And creepy.

    Also, the way the rightwing nuts are pushing for their religious agenda in public schools. Also disgusting and creepy.

    1. Agi Tater -- Disgusting and creepy is par for the course with the Religious Right.
