    Mo. schools complain over supplies with Obama logoOriginally published Monday, December 7, 2009 at 12:46 PM The Associated Press COLUMBIA, Mo. - Several Missouri schools are complaining about notebooks and pencils with designs similar to the logos from President Barack Obama's campaign. The Columbia Daily Tribune reported that complaints from unhappy officials at three Missouri schools have prompted the supply company responsible for the materials to travel across the state recalling notebooks and pencils. The design at issue includes a picture of pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. Above the coins is the phrase: "CHANGE" and underneath it reads: "WE CAN...

    Barack Obama ran an unprecedented Presidential campaign - utilizing the power of design to help secure the seat of the President of the United States of America. However, his iconic emblem, the ever present "O", holds more power than even Obama knows. Bill Whittle points out the dangers of branding an ideology with an icon and how, perhaps, the powerful symbol will be used against the very man it built up. video

    The Green Bay Packers are not - I repeat, are not - thinking about changing their logo or tweaking the team colors. But Milwaukee marketing executive Charlie Radtke believes it couldn't hurt. "I think a little freshening up, a little face lift, might be a good idea," he said. That's probably what Cher and Joan Rivers said in the beginning, too. I cautioned Charlie that this could be like depicting Jesus with a new hairstyle."I don't want to see torches and pitchforks, angry villagers, that kind of thing. It's just really an idea I've had for a few years," said...

    After the last three years of President Obama's graphics and poster art that evokes the style of graphics used in communist propaganda someone in the Old Media has finally discovered the similarity between today's political graphics and communist styled propaganda art. And on top of that another we see another member of the Media calling us all "tea baggers" So which of Obama's posters is the L.A. Times saying is like commie art? Is it the "Hope" poster where Obama stares off into the distance like a communist leader attempting to inspire confidence in the viewer? Is it one of...

    Ever since Glenn Beck took to the Fox television airwaves recently to offer a bizarre reading of the art commissioned 70 years ago for New York's Rockefeller Center, I've been puzzled by the graphic design element of his 9-12 Project. The logo (pictured) for his affiliated groups' rally in Washington, D.C., this weekend derives from century-old communist, socialist and other left-wing designs. Those were the motifs he railed against in his Rockefeller rant. For the logo, three raised and clenched red fists are superimposed over the U.S. Capitol. Obviously the bloody fist represents the tea-baggers' themes of unity and resistance....

Limbaugh cited the conservative blog Sweetness & Light , and told his listeners the Organizing for American Health Care logo looked like a Nazi symbol. "They accuse of us being Nazis, and Obama's got a health care logo that's right out of Adolf Hitler's playbook," said Limbaugh , who then went on to compare the Democratic party to the Nazi party. On his Web site images of the logo are posted next to Nazi images. Limbuagh...

This report shows the new logo and also reviews some of the other logos/seals Obama has been enamored with in the past year. NOTE: Obama's fetish for logos that revolve around the "O" in his name is beginning to be rather obvious. Does anyone get the feeling Obama is really full of himself? . . . . . (Watch Video)

Noteworthy passages are reproduced below, along with exact transcriptions. The full pages, with each passage in context in high resolution, are found at the bottom of this post. Much of Osawatomie, which was written at a time when the Dohrn-Ayers wing of the Weather Underground was transitioning from terrorism to “working from the inside” for revolution, concerns itself with the need to encourage “organizers” who will work in “communities” and use “audacity” to bring about “socialism” in America.

Or, as it was put in the inimitable HuffPo style, “McCain Rips Off Obama’s Slogan And Logo.” As to the first: On Tuesday, the Senator co-opted the slogan that has come to personify Obama’s candidacy, taking the Illinois Democrat’s “Change You Can Believe In” and altering it into “A Leader You Can Believe In.” The similarity is too close to be an accident. My guess is that this is a...

The NCAA has been cracking down on Native American nicknames, mascots and images that some find offensive. The NCAA said, “the committee believes that coupling the term “Tribe” with imagery that has traditionally been linked to Native Americans, for example eagle feathers and arrowheads, transforms that use from one associated with “togetherness,” “shared idealism,” and “commitment” to a stereotypical reference to Native Americans.” If the Williamsburg college...

"The pressure and the stigma and sometimes the all too casual bigotry in this town made it painfully clear when I first ran for office that I could either serve this community or I could be a gay man. But I could not be both," Cabaldon said. His disclosure - planned well in advance - concluded a speech focusing on...

    The definition of an American icon has changed over the last fifty years. For Valentines Day country singer icon Willie Nelson debuted his groundbreaking “gay cowboy song” on the “anti-family” Howard Sterns satellite radio program. Nelson also sang in the recent gay movie “Brokeback Mountain”. This 71-year-old braided balladeer’s new “gay” music holds the promise of further polluting America’s airwaves. Likewise, Sony’s new recording label called “Music With a Twist” features artists who practice homosexuality. The label is connected to MTV’s gay TV network. At one time country music meant mom, home and apple pie. Men were men and “the...

    What mood is your law firm? A study of the country's 200 most profitable firms found that more than half of them -- 116, to be exact -- have blue logos, websites, business cards, and other advertising materials. Why blue? Maybe because it's what's known in the marketing business as a ''low arousal" color, one that elicits a sense of calm and relaxation. Blue also projects an aura of royalty and authority. Red, in contrast, is an adrenaline-pumping, ''high arousal" color that exudes excitement, action, and aggression, says Tom Simons, founder of Partners + Simons, the Boston ad agency that...

    LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - The city of Las Cruces' official emblem has three crosses that a federal lawsuit alleges are unconstitutional religious symbols on public property. The lawsuit, filed Sept. 16 in U.S. District Court in Albuquerque, seeks the removal of the crosses. "The crosses serve no governmental purpose other than to disenfranchise and discredit non-Christian citizens," said the lawsuit filed by Paul F. Weinbaum, who lives in the Las Cruces area, and Martin J. Boyd of Las Cruces. Defendants include city officials, city councilors, Mayor Bill Mattiace, District Attorney Susana Martinez, state Attorney General Patricia Madrid and Gov....

    The man who's molding Logo, the new network for gays and lesbians, grew up in rural Illinois, attended Oral Roberts University and counted that cheesy keyboard solo on "Freeze Frame" as his big moment during gigs with his college band the Ozones. At first glance, Brian Graden hardly seems too hip for the room. But the 42-year-old Graden is one of television's busiest and most imaginative executives, already responsible for the programming on MTV, VH1 and CMT - and now Logo, which debuts Thursday. Long in the works, Logo will initially be seen in about 10 million homes with digital...
