Images on the campaign trail



I never understood Hillary Clinton's logo, and thought it was just a bad design, but is the right-pointing arrow really a copy of Barry Goldwater's 1964 campaign logo? I can see why he would have appealed to her as a pro-choice candidate at the time, but why model her logo after it now? To remind voters of her roots?

Meanwhile, some unofficial political images found on the campaign trail were done quite well (via Twitter):

Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend, and happy reading.

"In Christmas, 1993, and again in 1994, the First Lady directed the decoration of the Christmas Tree in the Blue Room, in accordance with a long-standing White House tradition. Aldrich noted that this Tradition had become so pronounced that the tree which the First Lady set up became a reflection of who she was. We want to allow Aldrich the opportunity to speak for himself. "If the ornament is especially well-made, there is a good chance it will be selected for the tree in the Blue Room, the first lady's tree. The first lady's tree is the 'Mother of All Trees', and the one that's supposed to capture the 'message' of the first lady herself." [p. 100] In other words, this tree was supposed to capture the essence of the soul of the First Lady, and for the things important to her.

Prostitution is a root cause of gender violence. Let’s end it now.




Via Sanctuary for Families: "This week the New York Times Magazine featured the cover story “Should Prostitution Be a Crime?”


"The article suggests that people in prostitution are helped by the wholesale decriminalization of the sex trade, including pimping and sex buying.


"This position flies in the face of our work assisting thousands of survivors of sex trafficking.  Far from being a job like any other, prostitution is almost invariably a condition of gender exploitation and frequently a violent and lethally dangerous form of abuse inextricably connected to sex trafficking (...)



"(...)Our clients’ experiences are the basis of our conviction that commercial sexual exploitation is one of the root causes of gender inequality and that we need to eliminate it, not simply try to mitigate the harm suffered by its victims."  Continue reading: Prostitution is a root cause of gender violence.
