I learned a lot from both candidates from encounters each of my teenage children had with each candidate during the previous election. My son was volunteering at a golf tournament to earn community service hours at school and Wamp came up and spoke to both my son and his friend for 15-20 minutes without once mentioning his name. My son had no idea who he was until he walked away and his friend told him. He just said he was extremely nice and friendly. (And clearly no motive to suck up to a couple 16-year olds who can't vote.)

Contrast that to Chuck who was a customer at my daughter's place of employment. When she was ringing him up, she asked his name so she could credit his reward points. He was totally appalled and taken aback that she didn't know who he was and said in a very condescending tone, "Fleischmann CHUCK FLEISCHMANN!" (Probably with much the same arrogant, angry demeanor he had in the debate. ) How do all you fans of our Congressman defend that type of disrespectful and narcissitic behavior?

Thank you, Oz, it IS targeted to teens (or teenie boppers) for use on job applications mostly in retail environments. When people go in and fill out a handwritten application, they typically hand it to whoever is working and the application gets tossed in a bin with tons of others all looking the same. In my daughter's instance, the cashier who took hers told her she thought the sticker was cute so she handed it straight the store manager. The store manager said he liked it because it showed initiative. So for a teenager with no work experience to fill in on an application, it was a way to communicate something about her and get the attention of the person doing the hiring. Then it's up to the applicant to sell themselves once they get interview.

What about a commercial for a local gun supplier that blatently PROMOTES gun irresponsibilty? It portrays a woman returning home with 2 little children who catches a burgler on her porch out of the corner of her eye. She ushers her kids out of the room through an adjoining room that just so happens to have a LOADED RIFLE PROPPED up against the door jam which she grabs and saves the day. Seriously? A loaded gun right out in the open where any child could get it. Shame on the advertiser and shame on the stations who continue to run it!
