But why won’t they support Obama? Support the president! The thought of not supporting the president was shouted as unpatriotic and outright un-american by the very same republicans while Bush was in office.
They know that Obama had tremendous following during the elections and afterwards, both in the US and worldwide. Secondly he’s not stupid to fall for their theatrics or to get embroiled in a shouting match by their “UnAmerican” this and that BS.
They won’t support him because that will make him achieve goals and achieving goals, leaving a legacy will make him a president who is worthy of that office. But they would rather have their sons and daughters in that office. They have no one of that caliber and will never attract anyone of brilliance, with their ideology.
Hence they need to make obama fail to survive. The republicans cannot and will not support Obama not because his plans are unamerican, but because the success of his plans are seen, by them, as their failures!
Instead of changing they would rather drag Obama and the country down so as to stay in power. History is littered with such people, only time will tell if they win or will change prevail.
The reasons behind the death of advertising is very similar to the story of the boy who cried wolf one to many times.
Over the years bogus claims and the ample use of the * has made consumers have no faith in the marketing communication of companies.
Why should they trust any claim made in an ad that is paid for, made by and distributed with the companies funds?
It’s about time ad agencies realized this and became moral custodians of the products and the communication they use to advertise them. It’s important to tell a client when their claims are only marginally true and often misleading. Cause this will hurt the brand the most in the long run.
But sadly today ad agencies are seen more as vendors and not as partners.
This leads to a “shut-up and do it our way” mentality on the clients end and a “Do it or else the client will go to some agency that does” on the agencies end.
In all honesty both parties are guilty of focusing on short term gains at the expense of long term success. It is important for the client to understand this and it is the ad agencies duty to make them understand.
A marketing manager wants to change his job every 3-5 years. A brand wants to stay in business for much longer. If an agency desires a long term relationship with the brand, it must understand and communicate this conflict of interest.
A brand might move to PR, seen as significantly more believable, but an ad agency will cease to be an ad agency.
Now why can’t the US just have some good old bi-partisanship. Like in the FDR days when things were not endlessly debated but done.
When everyone got behind a good idea, cause it was a good idea.
And insuring everyone in the country, taking away the 16% of GDP currently with medicine and putting it into other industries that don’t have the notorious salary ratio disparities (executive vs worker) as the medical industry, would be just that. A great problem solved.
It’s obvious with recent events that men, driven by greed and profit, do not have the public’s or any person’s (except their own) interest at heart.
Then how can a nation’s health be handed over to these individuals or a group of individuals called corporations.
It is crucial that the healthcare bill must have a public option for it to lead to real reform.
To start on a light note, I think most of the world’s wars till date come from not understanding or caring to understand the others we share our world with.
Some people might be uncomfortable with it but no one disputes our Inter-dependance on each other in this global world.
We have a lot in common (we’re all Ice-Cream just different flavors). The only way to understand this is to travel and soak in other cultures. Don’t go there and try and compare, instead absorb. Don’t go there and try and teach them your way instead learn theirs.
Our differences (cuisine, dance, song, culture, religion, color, language) are all minor and in my opinion more of a blessing. Being a foodie i understand that the potato came from peru and pepper from the Malabar coast. Everyone loves them, Thankfully the first explorers didn’t go there with a closed mind instead they sampled and tasted and learnt and exchanged. And for those who would like to point out the manipulation and greed of business that lead to exploitation. Just cause they did it doesn’t mean you will. Travel and see the world and it’s diversity and you too will understand that it’s crucial!
I love to see new things and i hope others do too. Cause the day we all want to see and hear what we already know, we cease to grow.
