Many ads are lies and many financial products are flim-flam.

Its not just about "being strong and resisting" the hype; it's also about expecting commercial organisations to display at least a rudimentary level of ethical behavour, and if they don't, govts should force them to.

they are generally flim flam JB. I certainly dont expect commercial organisations  to act ethically and if they claim to I give them a critical eye. They are in business to increase profit and that gets in the way of any sense of fair play. We set up regulators but they are either with the corps or in a game of dodge against  them-lol

I would add further comment but it may lead to me being labelled a Nazi for the first time ever.  And for what it's worth, I don't think the Nazis were all that big on individualism and capitalism. They were more into resocialising...

So now you are accusing the Advertising Standards Agency of corruption ?

I do wish I was as white as you are

Stu - do you really laugh out loud at your computer screen half as much as you suggest?
06/05/2011 at 14:05

that is very true SVT - what I objected to was the implication that certain groups should be targeted and left to rot if they didn't  work for the system or simply could not afford to live in it. (just short of gas chambers IMHO) That is neo Nazi to me. As I have said "some views".  Crude individualism is another thing I object to but that aint much to do with nazism.

yes I do -I find it pretty funny at times -truly

SQTMS - smiling quietly to myself - the more truthful version of lol in most cases.

Wondering why the f*** everything needs to be abbreviated?  Can't we just start spelling everything out?  If we're on here wasting time, then we have time to type it out.

STU - in answer to your question..... no I don't think that the whole of the nation should avoid credit because many people can manage it.

It's like drink.

 An alcoholic should probably avoid. 

I don't need to.

If you have an addictive personality you probably find many things to become addicted to. I can see that. But it is you and only you that chooses to follow the media crap.

I don't agree with you Madge but you answered the question -thanks
