Well yet another commercial is now airing. Raid has now decided to have their fun with us all as well...their new commercial claims they are the official killer of the millenium bug...this is getting rediculous now...but I am sure we have not seen the end of this...don't they know when the make a big joke about it less and less people are getting it...and less and less are not going to prepare...of course they do! More spin everyday...I have had enough, dammit...who do I call?

I haven't seen the Kia ad, but apparently it shows a bank run. Today I came across an article stating that some banks are asking Kia to pull the ad!

we are automaticly marginalized by being "survivalists",oh,yes we are.also,they paint a pretty good picture the sub-urbanite nutbag with all the toilet paper("don't touch the meat"lol!) but how many people out there in t.v. land are learning about y2k from these commercials and asking themselves "hmm,what's that?"good can come of this,and as survivalists we're already thought of as nutbags,maybe more people will look into what's freaking us out.after all we're not ALL conspiricist NWO nutbags,some of us were nutbags before we found out about the nwo conspiracy(grin)
