It's very confusing if one just does the avatar without the quote that it might be mistaken as "Go With Hillary...Move to the Right."

104. That's what it looks like.

The Hillary logo says: I'll take you backwards and to the right.

Wow, who did she hire to design that blooper? Dems don't need such awful mistakes made by our only candidate, so far, on her first day out. Come on Clinton team, get on the ball. If you going to be our candidate, then please stop with the sophmoric mistakes.

141. Backwards? Do you read from the right to the left?

The 'H' is in the Latin (ie West European) script, which is read from the left to the right. It's what you're reading right now.

The meme of pointing right to mean 'forward' has moved beyond the dominant written languages of the world into the purely symbolic - look at a control for a DVD, YouTube or similar and the 'play' button points to the right, as does the 'fast forward' button.

the substance isn't. Whatever it might be. I just don't see warm and fuzzy after 2008. And PLEASE, keep Bill somewhere else! Oh well, que sera - as long as she can beat Jeb, who I think is a lock for the GOP. Can't imagine any of the other clowns in the car have a chance.

Wonder if we'll ever have a black woman, atheist and gay. Nah - not in this lifetime. Gotta go back to bed. The idiotic things that come to mind when you haven't slept.

I see it as Hillary moving right, i.e., correctly or forward.

Those who want to put a "to the right" spin on this logo will do so, just as anyone who wants to impugn Hillary's candidacy will do so no matter what her logo is, or where it points, or whatever else there is about it. That's just part of trivia of the US political scene.

131. lol.. yep some of my best work has been done backing up

I've backed up and knocked down mailboxes (3). I've backed into trees. Not too long ago I forgot my son's truck was behind me and just plowed into his truck in reverse. Most recent was a car parked on the street behind me. It was early in the morning and the car was already in bad shape, so when no one came out of the house, I just drove off.

132. I backed into a fire hydrant with a stick reflector next to it.

 

punched a hexagonal shape right through my license plate (and car). The damn stick was on the OTHER side of the hydrant when I backed up. Would it kill someone to put a stick on both sides?

I also backed into a shitbox at the video store decades ago. He never would have noticed if I didnt go in and point it out. He laughed and said "have you looked at my car?" Almost made me want to ram it again just for fun on my way out.

Speaking of webs, I usually trap spiders with a wine glass and a piece of cardboard. A trace of wine at the bottom helps to calm them. I can attest to that. When they come to, they're safely outside on a forsythia bush. Hopefully, the spiders around here will return the favor.

To win, the Democratic candidate must attract conservative Dema and Independentts. By combining the red and blue and putting an arrow pointing right, the campaign hopes to connect with those voters.

What is it about Hillary's platform that you support?

Are you simply following the crowd and supporting her because she puts a D after her name or is there something specific that she has promised to support and do during her hoped for presidency that causes you to support her?

Anyway, what does she stand for when all is said and done?

She stands for supporting the working and middle-class of this country.
She stands for equal rights for all.
She stands for choice.
She stands for the right to health care.
She stands for millionaires and billionaires paying their fair share in taxes.
She stands for protecting society from gun nuts.
She stands for Social Security.
She stands for immigrants.

She stands for everything Democrats, and liberals, believe in.

That's why Elizabeth Warren thinks she is "terrific."
That's why other progressives like Howard Dean and Al Franken support her.

It's why I support her.

For more H1-B visas? For unaffordable college costs? And unaffordable pre-school tuition? What does she stand for that hasn't already been won?
Does she stand for a public option or single payer? Does she stand for better reforms in our financial sector? Does she stand for collecting taxes on profits earned by the sale of products made abroad in the US?

Of the issues of our time, what does she stand for?

The issues you addressed are issues of the past for the most part. A few of them are still in debate, but most have been decided. Not once and for all, perhaps, but decided. Where does she stand on today's issues?

155. How does she

the list is nice, but there are no details provided especially on ones that I do think require specifics
1. How does she stand for working and middle class families? What has she done to prove this. - What did she do while on the board of Walmart, as US Senator, as prominent figure in the public eye. What specifics has she provided?

2. What is her definition of fair share?
- Nixon era taxes, Eisenhower era, what is fair share?

3. How does she plan on protecting us from gun nuts?
- Which laws does she plan on enacting? Is she going to reintroduce the laws her husband signed. For some baffling reason opposition to gun control laws has grown since the spate of shootings.
Honestly, that baffles me. Unless people are afraid they need to be armed in the event there is a shoot-out at the OK Movie Theater. I find i t odd.

4. How does she stand for immigrants?
- Does she support the expansion of H1B Visas

5. How does she support social security?
-What are her proposals for making it more solvent? Or is she just opposed to cutting it?

Does she support
Expanding US presence in the Middle East
(and no I did not forgive Kerry for voting for the invasion of Iraq either. It's why I didn't vote for him in the primaries. Nor did I vote for him in the general election. But that's kind of a non-issue. Illinois voter and he was gonna win Illinois. So, it was easy to claim the so-called high road)

Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996, signed by her husband. The act which is partially responsible for the poor and unemployed getting access to benefits

the repeal of the Banking Act of 1933 aka Glass-Steagall signed by her husband

private charter schools


As to Warren, Dean and Franken... what do you expect them to say?

I am still waiting for Franken to do something about the slave labor conditions in Saipan that he found so deplorable in his book 'The Truth'. I have inquired and never gotten a straight answer from his office.
It would have been nice if Senator Franken had brought that up in 2009.

Howard Dean seems to be a supporter of Michelle Rhee. He got in a twit war with people over the issue of charter schools.
(i don't twitter cuz i think it's silly and ridiculous)

I'm going to wait and see who all throws their hat in the ring and decide which one best fits the qualities I want to see in a president. If it's Clinton, so be it. If it's O' Malley cool. We'll see.

Does the logo for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign look a bit too familiar?

One response was a tweet from media organization WikiLeaks, accusing Clinton's campaign of swiping their insignia. "Hillary Clinton has stolen our innovative WikiLeaks twitter logo design," reads a post from the organization's official Twitter page.

The tweet offered a side-by-side comparison of the logos. WikiLeaks' artwork features an hourglass with a dripping earth, along with a red arrow, while Clinton's shows a red arrow used to form a large "H."

146. HillaryCare wasn't single payer. But is Medicare?

 

And I was against starting the Iraq War which killed a million or so people.

144. But - everyone knows it's compulsory to have flames in your 2016 logo!

whether it's a burning American flag:



a subtle reference to Rand Paul's unusual hair - soon to be on fire?



or the Jeb (pronounced 'Heb') Bush logo excitingly previewed by TBogg:



Many more on the TBogg page:

(including a classic Palin one, but I think he deserves the traffic, so go there to see it).

156. Having any opinion on any of the candidates

seems to invite derision, scorn and/or adulation, cheering

I'm not sure what the rush is unless you've been a Clinton supporter all along
I find the whole thing silly at this point
But, it'll piss some people off and others will swell with pride.

I think no matter who else declares (or doesn't declare) it'll be met with the same basic responses
By the time the first caucus rolls around there will likely be 1000 buses with a myriad of corpses underneath

but some folks get emotionally attached and worked up over what random people post on a forum. Whenever I get like that, I just avoid forums for a bit and I feel better.

159. It looks like a good logo to me.

A forward arrow superimposed on an "H" for Hillary. Simple, clean and memorable.

It's interesting to see all of the interpretations of it from those who oppose her candidacy. Primary season is going to be very interesting, it seems.

160. The arrow is red and pointing to the right

 

so I guess it's pretty accurate. I appreciate your honesty!

186. Would 'slogans and logos' be a better description of that section?

It was one of the last places I looked for that logo, since I thought 'well, it's obviously not a slogan ...'. There are many things there I'd never think of as a 'slogan' - rainbow flag, Democratic donkeys, and many more.

It's pointing FORWARD to me.

177. Like it!

Lately, I've heard this joke running through the back of my head - whenever I hear or see somebody waffling around about how they can't vote for Hillary, won't vote for Hillary, they want that other person over there who seems perfect but she doesn't want to run, or he wants to run but doesn't have the big push or machinery behind him.

The joke (and you've undoubtedly heard it) is about the guy stranded on his rooftop while the floodwaters are rising, rather ominously. He prays to God. "PLEASE RESCUE ME, OH LORD! DELIVER ME FROM THE FLOODWATERS!"
And a boat comes by - "hey dude! Get on! Let's get you to safety!"
Man on roof: "Oh NO! The LORD will save me!" "SAVE ME DEAR GOD!"
And another boat comes by, fire department. "HEY! YOU on the roof! HERE! Get onboard! HURRY!!!"
Man on roof: "NO! My LORD is going to save me! I trust in GOD!" PLEASE DEAR GOD! SAVE ME!!!"
And soon there's a police chopper hovering overhead. They holler down with their megaphone: "SIR! HEY! We're lowering a ladder! Grab a hold! We'll airlift you outta there!"
Man on roof: "Oh NO! Thanks but NO! My GOD will save me! GOD WILL SAVE ME! I BELIEVE!!!!" "DEAR LORD! SAVE ME!"
And the floodwaters rise. And he's swept off the roof and drowns.
Man gets to the Pearly Gates. Can't believe where he wound up. What the heck happened? "Dear God, why didn't you come? Why weren't you there? I called upon you repeatedly and believed! Why didn't you come save me?"
The Lord: "Hey, what are you talking about??? For Heaven's sake, I sent two boats and a helicopter!"

calimary's moral-of-the-story: Hey, here's a shot at two boats and a helicopter. Grab a hold and get off the roof before the GOP floodwaters drown you! HERE'S your rescue, whether you recognize it or not. It's not The Lord. It's not the perfect rescue you prayed for. But it's a way out of danger, forcryingoutloud. We should grab WHAT'S THERE. We need to dance with WHAT'S THERE. If we wait around for the perfect, for the perfect rescue, the perfect dancing partner, the perfect ANYTHING (or rather - WHAT WE THINK is the perfect fill-in-the-blank-here), that will leave the way open for the bad guys to sweep into the White House again.

I guarantee - those who waited or held out will NOT like the results they get, if THAT scenario happens. GUARANTEED. ABSOLUTELY ROCK-SOLID CAST-IN-BRONZE-WITH-CONCRETE-FOOTINGS GUARANTEED.

182. Ah, I remember a longer, sharper version of that joke. But when the guy whines again, God says:

"What'd you expect, the Queen Mary?"

And then the guy drowns.

IOW, we need to help each other.
