Dirty Politics   

By Unknown
     


These political campaigns are corroding our electoral process. Who wants to participate in character assassination, Orwellian "doublethink," dreamland oratory, and outright lies and inflated claims?

We should be putting our heads together to fix and strengthen our process by cleaning it up. Perhaps the journalists could stop reporting news using future tense. Stop providing the outlet for garbage. Get off their rear and check out stories and stop using the media as a propaganda organ.

The news outlets that used to educate voters are no longer independent (and presumably neutral) sources of impartial information. Where can I go to get the truth?

I can assure you that I no longer bother following the political campaigns. They are just too unreliable, divisive, aggravating and disheartening. When a story or ad comes on, I zap to another channel or skip the story.

I hope AJR can bring the corrosive nature of modern campaigns to the attention of the public at large. At least, I hope some improvements in the way campaigns are conducted will lure people back to the polls instead of turning them off!

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
