There actually is a less pleasant topic than politics: that topic is foot fungus.
As an experiment, I started cleaning my feet with cheap hand sanitizer. I bought the bottle on sale for $1.25 in the local store. Anyway, the hand sanitizer cleared up all of my feet problems that I could never get rid of with expensive creams like Lamisil, Tinactin, Desenex or other medications.
I also bought a pair of Crocs as Crocs are easier to clean than regular shoes.
So my money saving tip of the month is to clean your feet with hand sanitizer. Crocs are also good shoes that are easy to clean.
In conconclusion, maybe foot fungus is a more pleasant topic of conversation than the shenanigans of the 111th Congress.
