    The family of the black teenager shot dead by a policeman in St Louis are haunted by the image of him holding his hands up at the moment he was killed, a family member claimed today. Ty Pruitt said that the mental picture of Michael Brown surrendering was stuck in his relatives’ minds as it showed he was ‘killed like an animal’. Pruitt spoke out at an emotional Sunday church service during which Brown’s mother Lesley McSpadden sobbed and wiped the tears away from her eyes with a tissue. His father Michael Brown Sr stood grim faced whilst wearing a...

    Clay Aiken appeared on CNN today to discuss his total serious and won't be a huge joke campaign for congress in North Carolina. Yesterday, rumors swirled about whether he was going to run, with insiders in NC and DC holding their breath, crossing their fingers, and looking up Ruben Studdard on YouTube. But now the awful suspense is over and we have our answer. Yes. Clay Aiken is definitely probably going to be a kind of candidate for congress from North Carolina for sure almost.

    New Obama slogan has long ties to Marxism, socialism The Obama campaign apparently didn't look backwards into history when selecting its new campaign slogan, "Forward" — a word with a long and rich association with European Marxism. Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name "Forward!" or its foreign cognates.

    The other day, I passed a Republican Party county office here in my home state, its window attractively emblazoned with placards declaring "Believe in America. Romney 2012" and "New Hampshire Believes. Romney 2012." There's not a lot of evidence for the latter proposition, but I'm certainly willing to believe that Romney believes that New Hampshire believes. [Snip] If it were up to me, the {Romney's] campaign slogan would be "You're screwed, losers. Steyn 2012" — or, after yielding to the consultants' internals showing that moderates want something more sunny and upbeat, maybe "Get real, you chumps. Steyn 2012." That's the...

    “I’m in over my head” and “The economy’s bad, it’s all my fault and I can’t fix it.” Those are two pretty accurate campaign slogans for the Obama-Biden campaign as formuated, via some creative editing done by TBS’s Conan, from Obama’s speeches. In playing the video at the end of his program on Thursday night, FNC’s Bret Baier explained: “With just a few weeks left until the Democratic convention, one late night show insists President Obama and Vice President Biden are continuing to try out and search for the perfect general election campaign slogan.” Last Saturday: “New Obama Ad Narrated...

"This journey is going to be long. And it’s going to be hard. And there are going to be plenty of twists and turns along the way. That’s how change always happens in this country. The reality is real change is slow and it never happens all at once." Seems like a winning slogan to me! "Change is slow."

The White House has been cycling through catchphrases since announcing his reelection bid a year ago: Winning the Future, We Can’t Wait, An America Built to Last, An Economy Built to Last, A Fair Shot. They seem to be looking for one to resonate — and the constant unveiling of new ones suggests that so far, none of them have. To communications experts, the...

    President Barack Obama has an emerging slogan — “greater together” — that he’s using to spur support among younger voters worried about jobs, education and debt. The collectivist slogan is appearing in more places, including fundraisers and in the title of the “Greater Together Student Summit Tour,” which is sending Obama’s deputies to colleges to galvanize students and youth. On Feb. 1, Obama used the slogan to spur support among young and old African-Americans, and especially African-American women. Less than half of younger African-American men are in the workforce, and the average wealth of African-American families was slashed by the...

They may not be official but those are all phrases that could in one form or another be candidates to become President Barack Obama's re-election slogan. Advisers say a fresh slogan to replace the winning "Change we can believe in" mantra of 2008, is unlikely to appear before Obama knows who his Republican opponent will be and starts big campaign travel swings, likely in the spring or summer. His campaign posters now say simply, "Obama 2012."

    Another month, another White House catchphrase. “Pass this bill” looks to have been retired by White House message-makers. The heyday for President Obama’s three-word exhortation came in September, after he put forward his $447-billion jobs plan. Speech after speech, Obama commanded lawmakers to “pass this bill.’’ Day after day, Congress refused. With the impasse in its seventh week, the White House is trying a different approach, encapsulated in a new three-word slogan that is part plea, part battle cry. “We can’t wait.’’

Obama used the slogan to stress his plans to introduce an administrative effort to help people refinance their mortgages. The plan, to be run through the Federal Housing Finance Agency, is aimed at making an existing refinancing program available to more borrowers. The plan — and the "we can't wait" slogan — is meant to show an...

Not so, insisted the White House and host University of Arizona. Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs said Thursday he and other aides didn't expect the president's remarks at the school's basketball arena to receive as much rousing applause as it did. Gibbs said the crowd's response, at times cheering and shouting, was understandable.

    "Washington, right now, is broken," said Vice President Biden in February. "I've never seen it this dysfunctional." Back then, Biden was just one of many who complained that partisan rancor and gamesmanship had brought the functioning of the federal government virtually to a halt, making it impossible for the president and lawmakers to get anything done. "Washington is broken" became the political world's conventional wisdom. Fast-forward to Dec. 22.

    When Barack Obama was first introduced to the now famous three-word call to arms that came to define his quest for the presidency — “Yes, we can!” — his initial response could be paraphrased as “No, I won’t!”. According to a new book, when the slogan was first suggested to him he blanched, because he felt that the phrase was “corny” and “childish”. Only when his wife Michelle intervened and convinced him that it would work did he relent and use it in speeches and campaign events. “I don’t like it. Come on,” Mr Obama is quoted as saying...

    "0bama is not ready to lead" has been McCain's main line of attack, shown in almost every TV and web Ad that the campaign produces. While it worked well in Summer, perhaps it is time to think another line of attack. "... not ready to lead" fitted well when 0bama was seen as a newcomer in the national politics. As the campaign develops to the last four weeks, however, most people have been somewhat familiar to 0bama. They have seen a person who was lacking specificity in his answers, but still could hold himself during the debate. So, McCain's "......

    The Army, facing another tough recruiting season, launched a $200 million-a-year advertising campaign this month and unveiled a new slogan: "Army Strong." The campaign's core message is that the Army builds not only physical but also mental and emotional strength in recruits, bonding them into a powerful, close-knit team. "There's strong, and then there's Army strong," a deep male voice intones as martial music rises from a brass band in the background. The television ads, launched nationwide for Veterans Day along with Internet placements and other outreach, omit all but the most fleeting images related to the all-volunteer Army's biggest...

    Shortly after the Air Force switched their slogan last month from “Cross Into the Blue” to “Do Something Amazing,” the Army is replacing the relatively new slogan “An Army of One.” The Army had to reevaluate the effectiveness of its $200 million per year advertising contract after missing its recruiting goals in 2005. The result is a new slogan with high expectations and deep meaning. The new slogan “Army Strong” was developed by McCann Worldgroup. The five-year contract with McCann Worldgroup is valued at $1 billion with the first two years guaranteed at $200 million annually. The slogan “Army Strong”...

    PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - New Jersey, trying to overcome its reputation for corruption, traffic and toxic waste dumps, has rejected dozens of sardonic and sarcastic entries in a contest for a new tourist slogan. A list of five possible slogans released on Wednesday leaves out "New Jersey: We can always use another relative on the payroll," and "Come to New Jersey: It's not as bad as it smells." Voters get to pick the winner in the competition launched after Gov. Richard Codey nixed "New Jersey: We'll Win You Over," created by a consultant who was paid $260,000 (149,000 pounds). "It makes...

    Recently, I watched a new Hollywood sci-fi thriller called "The Island." It had all the trademarks of the Hollywood blockbuster – big stars (Ewan McGregor, star of "Blackhawk Down" and both episodes three and four of "Star Wars"), slick production (filming techniques that gave it a "high gloss" and "futuristic" look), great editing (the story moved crisply), and action, action, action (the newest version of the impossible but entertaining car-chase).What caught my attention, however, was the film's subject. It concerns a group of people living in an underground shelter. The shelter protects them from radiation poisoning. It seems there has...

    When Illinois Senator Richard Durbin apologized for his characterization of the interrogation methods used at Guantanamo Bay as being akin to those of the Nazis, Pol Pot, and Soviets, he said something that has always struck me as being odd coming from the likes of faux liberals. He said that he thought our troops were the best in the world, which is a variation on what anti-war faux liberals say when cornered with their attitudes about the war: "I support the troops." "I support the troops" is a nice, touchy-feely statement that few people can disagree with, but there is...

    Olympics: 'One World, One Dream' slogan for China's 2008 Olympics BEIJING : China announced "One World, One Dream" as the official slogan for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, local media reported. Li Changchun, a ranking member of the Communist Party, made the announcement at an elaborate show in Beijing on Sunday, according to the sina.com website. China has spent six months searching for a slogan that would suit the world's most important sports event. In late December the Beijing Organizing Committee (BOCOG) kicked off the search for the slogan, urging people to think up a catchy phrase that would...

    RICHMOND, Va. – The inscription "In God We Trust" on the facade of a government building in North Carolina does not violate the U.S. Constitution's guidelines on the separation of church and state, a federal appeals court ruled Friday. A three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously upheld a lower judge's dismissal of a lawsuit challenging the slogan written on the Davidson County Government Center in Lexington, N.C. The inscription, in 18-inch block letters, was paid for with donations from individuals and churches in 2002. Lawyers Charles F. Lambeth Jr. and Michael D. Lea, who regularly...

    The United States is currently embroiled in a national debate over the Social Security program of the nation. This national debate is being initiated and fueled by President George W. Bush because he aptly thinks that something needs to be changed. President Bush correctly stresses that the Democrat Party has been successful in growing the system into an American version of socialism. Like all prior socialistic programs in the past, it is too top heavy and will soon collapse under its own financial weight. He is traveling all around the nations speaking to anyone that will listen to him that...
  • 'I can't...I'm Mormon' T-shirts too hot

    T-shirts proclaiming the message "I cant ... I'm Mormon" are apparently too hot for Brigham Young University, as the college newspaper has yanked all advertisements. According to the Deseret Morning News, the paper halted the ad campaign after complaints from students, professors and administrators who felt the slogan implied a desire to engage in "objectionable" behavior. Many thought wearers of the clothing wished they could drink, smoke or have casual sex – but were prevented solely because of their membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
