New Source of Income

A story by Evelyn Marshak



My first preference would be to be out of range of TV commercials for either Connecticut senatorial candidate. For a few reasons it is not now possible for me to book a cruise that would slowly cross the Atlantic Ocean until the day after the elections and thus be out of reach for never ending Murphy – McMahon commercials. Reality is they are not commercials but schoolyard bullying messages. You don’t pay your taxes; you didn’t show up for 80% of your committee meetings; you want to give the wealthy including yourself, a bigger tax break. If I have to endure this nonsense, I want to be paid for each commercial I cannot avoid. Now I don’t watch a lot of TV but I am addicted to Jeopardy and like the 5 p.m. news. That means I am forced to endure these commercials which have yet to mention what either of you might accomplish or do for this country. Therefore I want your website to which I could repeatedly type in my requests for payment for enduring the biggest bologna I can recall in any campaign. That would mean at the end of every week a check would be cut to pay me for the pain I am enduring. This concept grew out of a threat I made to my eye doctor’s office. I always have to listen to some pitch from at least half of the doctors in the group before I get lucky and reach a human. They think I jest but I truly want to be paid for being held a prisoner by their ads. On a good day I get to hear them all for a second time and at times a third time. Figure a dime a person x 5 or 6 people x 2 or 3 rounds. My earnings can be deducted from my $15 co-pay.
