negative advertising

anonymous asked:

Hi can you give me some sh blogs to follow that don't have a lot of negativity please, this drama is giving me a headache

Hi! I may not be the best person to ask this of, but I will do my best. 

Tbh, I’m glad you are still following me after all of the drama I’ve been posting about. I advertise as “negativity free” with the intention being that I would only post positivity and nice things and stay away from the drama. Lol. I don’t think I’m doing too great at that. 

However, I have tried to remain level-headed and fair in regards to all the critical discussions happening in the fandom rn, when I do engage in it. I’ve lost several followers, but also gained some. So I must be doing something right XP. Thank all of you for sticking with me btw!!! You’re all amazing. 

Anywho….

I follow a lot of great people, but with the whirlwind of posts and opinions flying around I have not really kept track on all of my faves opinions on everything. I know they are all varying so you should totally check out the people I reblog frequently because even though they may have different opinions on what qualifies as negativity, they are all super nice, wonderful angels.

You can start with these people right here:

@malecisright @leetje @ladymatt @blj2007 @mypatronusismalec @boyfriendsmalec @peachyjellybean @bonus-point @only-1-a @daddarios @gleeksfreaksandwannabes @darquebane @magicandarchery @sfjessii @sharona1x2 @alyxhavok @write-yourself @courageincombat @alec-s-arrows @lightwoodsibs5ever @soulisthirsty @highwarlok @summerseasbooks @magnusandalec @ninsuninja @x5vale

okay now after what i said i feel like i need to return creating giomis art cause it’s hard to deny my evergreen sympathy for them and cause my vision of them comes along with my words on this questionable discussion.
still i feel really sorry for the one who put in my mind their bad underage experience. you may hate me and my art bc of it but i never tried to express them in a negative plot or to advertise unhealthy adult/teen relationship. on the counterpart, i try to tell adults that putting a youngster in a relationship is a big responsibility and no doesn’t mean “no, but fuck yes if you can make me want it”, take care of those who you love and never make them do what they don’t want. this also works with same-age lovestory, it’s a human law, but remember that not all youngsters feel right to refuse, and don’t use it.
of course it won’t change anything but at least one more true word is spread.

Colours meme: Red for Sexual passion

(Red is a very emotionally intense color. It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate, and raises blood pressure. It is the color of sexuality and can stimulate deeper and more intimate passions in us, such as love and sex on the positive side or revenge and anger on the negative. In advertising, red is often used to evoke erotic feelings.)

Remember the purpose of negative advertising

is NOT to get you to change your vote. It’s to get you to throw up your hands and not vote in the first place.

If you like candidate A and I make you feel bad about candidate A, you don’t vote for me, candidate B. But if I can get you to not vote, that’s one less candidate A vote I have to overcome to win.

Not voting because it makes you feel better makes it just that much easier to win for the candidate whose policies you don’t like.

An Election Day Carol

In the early hours of Election Day, before dawn reaches the nation’s capital, Justice Anthony Kennedy is suddenly awakened by someone standing next to his bed.

“Get out of here or I’ll call the cops!” the Justice shouts.

“Don’t get bent out of shape,” says the ghost-like figure.

“Who are you?” demands the Justice.

“I am the ghost of Election Day Past.”

“Heavens!” cries the Justice. “Why are you here?”

The ghost does not answer but beckons the Justice to follow him.

He leads the Justice to Sacramento, California, the city where he grew up. The day is Election Day, 1957, the first time the youthful Anthony has ever voted.  

“I look so happy,” the Justice says, his eyes welling up with tears. “Everyone does.”

“It was a time when people were eager to vote, a time when Election Day was a joyful occasion,” says the ghost. “A time before all the corruption.”

“What corruption?” asks the Justice, worriedly.

The ghost glowers at the Justice. “The corruption brought on by your decision in ’Citizen’s United versus Federal Election Commission,’ the ghost snaps. “You wrote the opinion that four of your fellow justices joined. It opened the floodgates to big money in elections.”

“I don’t understand…” the Justice cries.

“You decided that corporations are people under the First Amendment, and that independent campaign expenditures, even when made by giant corporations, don’t give rise to corruption or even the appearance of corruption,” the ghost says. “How could you have been so naïve?”

The ghost suddenly vanishes, and the Justice is back in his bed, trembling. He tries to calm himself. “Just a bad dream,” he says.  

Moments later another ghost arrives.

“Who are you?” the Justice pleads.

“I am Election Day Present,” says the apparition, and you must come with me.

The ghost leads the Justice to a television set where he is forced to watch five straight hours of negative political advertising.

“Please stop! I can’t bear it!” cries the Justice. “Who is responsible for this?”

“No one knows. They don’t have to identify themselves,” says the ghost. “You wrote in ‘Citizens United’ that Congress would pass a law requiring disclosure of the sources of all campaign funds. But of course it didn’t.”

“But I … I … thought …” the Justice stammers.

The ghost towers over the Justice. “You should have known!” he shouts, and then vanishes as suddenly as the first ghost, leaving the Justice back in his bed.  

“Oh help,” Justice Kennedy groans. “I’m having a very bad night.”

Moments later, two apparitions appear.

“Who are you?” the Justice cries, pulling his blanket over his head.

“We are Election Day Future,” say the two in unison. “Come with us.”

“Must I?” whispers the Justice.

The ghosts nod their heads, and lead the Justice into a palatial room in which a dozen people are loudly partying.

“Who are these people?” asks the Justice.

“The billionaires who now own America. They make all the decisions.”

“What … happened?” the Justice asks meekly.

“‘Citizen’s United,’ allowed a few giant corporations, Wall Street banks, and very wealthy people to buy American democracy. And once they bought it, there was no longer any need for Election Day. That’s why they party every year on this day.”

“Oh, no,” says the Justice, and he begins to weep.

“By the way,” say the ghosts in unison, “let us introduce ourselves. Charles and David Koch.” They shake the Justice’s hand, and then vanish.

Justice Kennedy is back in his bed, just as the morning light is beginning to peep through the curtains.

It’s Election Day, 2014. The Justice is overwhelmed with joy. He puts on his best suit, and goes to vote.

“Hello!” he happily shouts to everyone he sees at the polling place. “Isn’t Election Day wonderful?”

Then Justice Kennedy hurries to his office in the Supreme Court building where he meets with his law clerks.

“I’ve made a very important decision,” he says. “I’m going to join with the four dissenters to ‘Citizens United’, and we’re going to reverse that horrific case. ”

His clerks have never seen the Justice so overjoyed.

“I want each of you to take the rest of the day off, and be sure to vote!” he beams. Then he heads for the door and clicks his heels, before leaving for home. “Happy Election Day!” he shouts.
