So propaganda rules the world.
Now we know.
With a little help from the lawmakers.
There is always free TV for public supported viewing.
This program is sent out at viewer option.
Once recorded the ads can be edited out for a complete show.
The ad agencies are wrong because they allow the broadcast
of a show that they edit which is against movie rights of editing.
If the machine, computer or tv recorder can allow an operation
then words or law should not interfere. The net and computer
allow for file transfers and thus can not be controlled.
Only by laws and propaganda do the ads rule over the machine.

Is this in reference to TV material only? Otherwise it sounds like if crime can be committed using computers and the net then it is not actually a crime.

Good hope we break the law some more and straight up abolish commercials, Free market my arse, let's show lots of videos that prey on the emotional, social, and straight up popularity of showing certain items in conjunction with other aspects of human physic.

We will rule the world with these visual stimulated marketing propaganda machines!

HEAD ON APPLY DIRECTLY TO WALLET!

Why is it I can remember commercials? But not where I put my own car keys? Should be put in jail for forcing the finnacial bleeding of the world, yes you are not forced to buy anything, but you are shown you are doing it wrong basically without them.

So, if I understand this correctly, they are ticked off because the companies that advertise and support the networks aren't able to reach the CONSUMERS through commercials.

If we are not forced to see all of the new trinkets and toys and products that we are supposed to BUY to make us happy and content....the big corporations could potentially be losing profits.

If my assumptions are wrong...someone please enlighten me.

Otherwise, what a crock!

Here are some tips to make your ads more enjoyable or take away your mind from the brute force spoon fed propaganda.

1.Look for illuminati/masonic/satanic/whatever symbols
2.Think reverse of what said and suggested on the ads - I do this a lot.
3.Time how long a picture shown - I bet its less than 2 seconds
4.Count how many actors involved
5.Think how the camera angled, positioned, how many takes, movie production stuff etc
6.Play game with your kids/friends/whoever, betting what stupid commercial that will come up next
7.Guess whats on next channel, ads or movie or news etc etc
8.Think how to create the advertised item DIY way.
9.Think how hard to create the graphics yourself in photoshop/flash
10.Count how many ads shown - Cmonnn 1 more commercials, please, I wanna win the bet.


and if that fails, just don't watch tv...thats the point i'm at... too many commercials...get out and live a little bit.

Turned on the tube and here is what is going on some of the channels. Some of this is on 2 channels at the same time.

Mom is 57, look 27
Over 55 with joint pain
grow bigger tomatos
Paint my house
Silver jewelry
Isomer's skin care
Color cosmetics (qvc)
Shark steam pro
Insanity workout
Secrets of big sound
24 ladders in 1
Brazil butt lift

This is the good stuff. Channels of pure commercials. How long before I have to have the TV on for a certain number of hours a day via their remote control?

Notice: You cannot watch this news channel - Your daily quota of hours on infomercial channels has not been met. Please watch commercials and try this channel at a later time.

Outstanding, Road! We really should take some of the best of these titles and hit the poor
bastards all at once with the barbecued parts.!! I think we can turn almost all of those titles
into just one infomercial for the Spice Channel: Aging floozies, we all worship your discarded gym socks.


Mom, 57 with Joint Pain Does Insanity Workout:
Grew Bigger Tomatos and Brazil Butt Lift
to look 27-- and Now Paints Her Own House Like
a Cougar Cream Pro
[flash the before/aftermath pics]
Secrets of Big Sound?
24 Laddies in 1 Night.

I've always admired older women, especially with intact or better yet resurrected libidos. Problem is, when I was younger all the chicks liked older guys-- and now that I'm
an older guy the cacklers are going after the high school studs.
It's like my dry spell has followed me around my whole
life like PigPen's dust cloud... $#!
Don't know why I did this; I supppose some lonely people
watch a lot of infomercials from the spare time available.
I threw out my TV LAST May, too... could be a connection.

I see a business opportunity here, anyone else see it? I am going to start manufacturing glasses that hook onto your eyelids and hold them open to you are forced to watch the indoctrination programming that the state-run corporate media require you to watch. Seems like that's the next step.

So you want quality TV and don't want to pay for it? Up to you. No adverts = no TV.

Spot on. And if the companies that advertise and support the networks aren't able to reach the consumers, why should they support the networks?

And if the networks have no support, and presumably aren't wiling to make programmes for free, we have no networks and no programmes.

Now, actually I have no problem with that. But do you also propose no more TV?

The funny thing is, when you paid for cable it used to mean you were paying to avoid commercials think about the evolution of things since that...


Agreed! Growing up in a rural area, we received programming through the air waves. There was no cost to the viewer as the advertising paid for the programming. Somehow, "the man" figured out a way to extort money where it once was not! This is the main reason I do not have television programming. If I wished to pay for programming, this would not include advertising!

I am now convinced that the original Chinese ten year agenda to
have a TV in every home will be codified here into criminal law.
For throwing out your TV, 366 days in jail and six months in a
work camp; forget the community service, we'll just haul you away.
Second offense, you get the Malcom McDowell treatment with
your eyes taped open and Freebie's bass rig with horns on top
RINGSIDE. The last thing you'll ever hear will be the fifth consecutive
scatched up side of Ray Conniff at God knows how much more than
161.5 dB A-weighted volume at one meter. That while helplessly
watching a transplanted and enhanced Cannibal Corpse vid direct
from Disneyworld Orlando-- because they're great and they CAN.
See other thread,lol.
When the eyes and ears get a dissimilar Fry Bombardo, people
like me are the result. But I'm a lot more funny at parties now....

I must be a criminal, cause when I'm watching a show, I pause it for the first 15 minutes. Then, when a commercial comes on, I can fast forward through it. I can see some company trying to say the technology interferes with their freedom of speech. I am 100% for anyones right to say what they want. That does not mean I have to listen to what is said. I hate commercials and will not watch them no matter what they do.

Quality TV?

That is just myth, like The Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot.

It doesn't really exist.

I always thought the ads were bad over here in the UK until I watched an American show. I seriously don't know how you guys can cope with an ad break every 10 minutes. Everybody should have the right to skip the ads if they wish.
