Ad Sense, or Not

In an attempt to earn a little bit of money from my blog I signed up for Google’s Ad Sense program. They automatically generate the ads that pop up on the side of my blog. I do not control the content, although Google claims the ads that appear relate to my blog’s topics.

Then how the heck did this one show up yesterday?

Grants that Democrats never have to repay? What a riot! If ever there were a perfect example of the difference between the Republican and Democratic ideology, this is it.

Now if we can just get the Republicans back to believing there is no free lunch, not for farmers, not for bankers or, more importantly, not for themselves.

And, by the way, when I say I'm trying to earn a little bit from my blog, I mean a teeny, tiny, itsy bitsy little bit. In the seven months I've had Google's Ad Sense on my blog I've earned a grand total of $2.16. TOTAL. This blog is obviously a labor of love...

One more note: I removed the Google Ad Sense from my blog today because, in addition to the Democrat ad, they placed an ad for bras on this morning. That isn't a big problem for me except that they had pictures with the ad, showing great big boobies nearly bursting from the advertised bras. Man, I love alliteration... Anyway, the ad block will return when I can figure out how to moderate it more fully. And when it does, feel free to click on it. I could use another penny or two.
