Last week I signed-up for Google Ads, mostly because I wanted to track the number of visists to this blog. I have no hope or desire of actuially making any money at it - in fact, I made 1 cent last week!
Unfortunately, I soon discovered that allowing ads on the blog inclues having car ads, which I generally loathe. Not because I hate cars, mind you. I just don't enjoy participating - even in this small way - to the glut of ads that LIE about how great cars are, and how important it is to be able to "Zoom-Zoom."
Rather than bemoan this situation, I have decided to respnod by posting MORE CAR ADS. What is shown below are some of the most offensive car ads I could find in a few minutes. Enjoy, and remember --- cars are tools, and to embrace a car as a symbol of who you are is shallow and vain. Cars can provide independence, but they don't make you truly free. You are Dependant on gas, roads, police, insurance, auto-repair shops, taxes, tags, a driver's license, etc.
Hardly a life free from dependence on others.
Car companies spend $BILLIONS on commercials each year trying to connect with consumers. Over the years that have built a customer base that depends on speed and the illusion of speed in a new car. They cater to the worst possible behavior in their customers. They values speed, cornering, and sleek lines . Make no mistake, it is a fast car world out there. Y'all be careful! Do we really need "Autobahn for All?"
