Has anyone noticed the subliminal messages this week?

So Obama is taking over the airwaves this week. I only watch channel 11 and cable stations so I haven't seen alot. Some shows were supposed to incorperate it into the show (subliminal) and some actors are doing the website advertising between shows to get people to go there.
Monday I did see at the end of CSI Miami where the cop guy went to the beach and as he grabbed his board he picked up some coke cans and put them in a recycle bin. They showed a 4 way split screen with characters doing volunteer things. I saw the tail end of the mentalist guy giving out the website and last night I saw something that I told my dh about but now I can't remember(you can see how well this idea is working lol) My dh said he saw them talking about the peace corps before "The good wife"
Anyone else notice? Now that I see what they are doing I'm not bothered. Most people skip commercials anyway. The rest is hardly noticable. lol

  • What do you expect from these freaks.

    Today it's about "public service", tomorrow about policy, etc.,

  • Since we already recycle and volunteer, I guess I hadn't really noticed. From my experience, people who toss trash on the ground do it because they WANT to, not because they don't know any better.

    I agree laziness or just noncaring altogether...someone who cares would carry their garbage along with until they came across somewhere to properly dispose of..

  • Keep an eye open for the flu vax ones too. We don't watch much TV especially the drive-by media channels.
