The Obama campaign sent out a personalized flyer in the last cycle that tried to contrast the recipient's voting record against their neighbor's. It was a classless attempt to generate feelings of exclusion and non-group behavior because you didn't vote for The One in the previous cycle, as it claimed your neighbors did. It was bs, but certainly would fool or impact those not thinking it through.


Perfect approach to attract the low information voter. Obama is unmatched in that endeavor.



Thanks for pointing that out for the 15th time, while ignoring the studies on the viewers of Faux News................ it's an effort to even read any of your posts anymore......


Sorry, but one would be hard pressed to find a better example than that. The low-information voter tag didn't exactly just come out of nowhere.
How about f*cktards that vote against their own economic self interests [the majority of republican voters] those that don't make 200k+ a year, [roped in by things like guns, anti woman's reproductive rights, anti civil rights] those are your "low information voters"

We get it by now. You feel that the pursuit of profit INVARIABLY brings out the worst in people. That's one way to look at it and I suppose that's true in certain cases, but that's not the rule. The pursuit of profit also brings out positive aspects in people.


Corporations are not people.

I think you missed the point. Are the file cabinets and fax machines running the day to day operations?

My wife and I are almost completely immune to any kind of advertising unless we hear about something we already would have bought. Coupons, pop-ups, magazine ads, commercials, etc. may alert us but they don't nudge us into buying something just because we've been targeted.

"Just say no!" works in a lot of ways!

If you take the chip, you will be tracked, monitored, and targeted.


I would say, don't take the chip.

I remember one time I was on leave at a Dead concert in Philly and while I was waiting in line for beer a woman in line with me asked me what I did for a living, I politely replied that I was a Soldier stationed at Fort Bragg, NC. She then pretentiously replied "you're in the Army and you follow the Dead?" I was caught flatfooted and at a total loss for words when a couple behind me came to my defense and said to the woman "hey, it takes all kinds of people to make the scene special." My point is title does not dictate behavior!

Based on the range of views on this forum, I'd say the politics run the gamut from pretty far right to way out left, so ABB fans befuddle those marketers.

A lot of people still think that conservatives are not cool enough to like rock music or jam music. It's ridiculous and untrue. I remember when some reporter expressed surprise that Bush had the Stones on his Ipod.

Former Mass governor William Weld (republican) was a big Dead fan. I saw him while he was governor during intermission at a Dead show at the old Boston Garden in 1991...he had red hair and stood about 6'4" and he was walking through the concourse dressed is a suit and tie with a couple of plainclothed troopers escorting and the trippy tie-dyed deadheads kept yelling "hey guv what's up!" and he was giving the thumbs up back to them...it was really kinda surreal.
