Mr. Cosumer Reports!

When I was a kid in elementary school and the teacher would admonish me for using a word incorrectly I always responded with, “But, I heard it on the radio.” And the teacher would always say, “Just because you heard it on the radio doesn’t make it correct.” That’s still true.

I don’t want to call WSB’s “Belinda” (she with the nails-on-blackboard-voice) a liar but when she tells you that Zero Rez will clean rugs in “three rooms for $139.00” she’s obviously talking about three closets. I have a normal house like you do with 3 bedrooms and two and a half baths. In 2011 Zero Rez charged me $455.50 for cleaning three rooms and the carpeted stairs. And I have the cancelled check to prove it. Don’t believe all the commercials that you hear on WSB radio. Especially from “Belinda.” She gets everything she advertises free so she doesn’t know what anything really costs.

Now, for the guys, let’s talk about that magic “ANDRO 400!” Maybe Tom of Seattle did go from a 38 waist to a 32, and maybe he did lose 60 lbs – but it wasn’t from taking Andro 400 which is a mail order concoction. Let me tell you the truth about real testosterone treatments. You cannot buy them over the counter or over the Internet. “Andro 400” is trying to convince you that it is the same as Androgel 1% which can only be prescribed by an endocrinologist. I know because I have been using it for several years. No, it does not make you lose “belly fat” and it does not increase sex drive. It does give one more energy in a safe and controlled way, and it is expensive. And you must have a blood test every year for the prescription to be renewed. So, again let me say – don’t believe all the commercials you hear on WSB radio.

Oh, one last thing on the recent election. Seven days before the election, on the Wednesday before the November 8 election that political expect Neal Boortz said, with strong conviction, and this is a quote, “By five minutes after nine next Tuesday you will find that Hillary Clinton is your next president.” So much for Boortz’s political savvy.

Then there is the foolish idea of delaying the last hour of Sean Hannity for the sanctimonious Eric Ericson, who cancelled a scheduled speech in Atlanta by Donald Trump, because Trump was “unfair” to Megan Kelly. Shows you how smart Ericson is.

Kurt Mellish is a good forecaster,but they made him change his name from Melluish to Mellish so it would rhyme with Hellish. “When the weather is Hellish turn to Mellish.” Go figure.

So maybe you shouldn‘t believe anything you hear on on WSB radio, except Herman Cain and Rush Limbaugh.
