Default The biggest scam on TV

The biggest scam on TV are those "We'll Solve your IRS problems" commercials.

THe thing is you can do the same yourself working with the IRS!

And if you're in such deep doo doo you can't you need a serious tax lawyer not an 800 number.

Those commercials really tick me off. I have paid huge amounts of federal tax during my working career and never screwed them out of a dime. To watch some of these guys say, "I owed the federal government $10 million and settled for $18.75" makes me want to kick their butts. If you owe it, pay it.

Oh, I'd say the biggest scam is for products that make aging men think that their wives really want them to buy products so that the sexual function of their beer-bellied bodies with the drooping man boobs and the 75 pound buttocks can be restored to that of an 18 year old.

It would take more than a holistic pill to do that. You would need serious drugs and you would have to give them to your partner.
