In the Last Days



As we approach the final leg of the election there are many things one can do to turn the tables in our favor. We know that both candidates have a viable chance at winning the presidential election, and with the election date quickly approaching we need to analyze the strengths and weakness of our own communication strategies. While doing a self check, we can also study the communication style of the Barack Obama campaign. In analyzing our own strengths and weakness we will be looking to find out what can be done to make a better impression on voters. The ultimate goal of this overhaul is to sway Obama voters, capture undecided votes, and maintain the votes we already have.
Barack Obama is considered a breath of fresh air because he is young, intelligent, genuine and has vision for a better America. While his youth is considered a good thing, it is pockmarked with inexperience, and he has little foreign policy knowledge. We need to show the American public that there is a reason to vote for you, over him. The best way to start would be to develop a vision of your own and make it known. If you did this it would be very likely that people would understand where you are trying to lead America. In addition to making your vision known, you would also need to show people that your policies and theories about how America should be run are viable and helpful to the betterment of this country, with all it‘s people include.
We should make an effort to improve your image by making people see that you are working on your political weaknesses. While things such as your national recognition, experience, war record, and media savvy have helped to push you forward, we need and extra incentive to push you into the presidency. We should also try to emphasize the good aspects of your character, and play up your strengths. If we can get people to understand why experience is so important, or how your war experience has prepared you for the presidency then we can close the gap and possibly win the election. While emphasizing the strengths, you can actively work to change the ideas Americans hold about your age, capability and temper, then you may have a greater chance of winning this election. You need to work to show Americans that you have the capability and stability to maintain the presidency for the next 4 years. One could find similar positive political figures who are close in age range and compare them to yourself, and emphasize their ability as an older person. Some Americans may feel as though you have a temper, we need to work towards maintaining an even tone and try to reduce the seemingly emotional reactions you have to accusations against you and your campaign. Also, it would be beneficial to cut back on the amount of smear campaigning, if we began to just post the facts, instead of bashing the other candidate then we can regain full support of unhappy voters. If we can put some of these suggestions into place we can sway some voters, maintain McCain voters and begin pulling in some of the undecided voters.
We need to really ask ourselves what would pull the undecided voters to our side. What are they looking for? Undecided voters have given an array of reasons as to why they have not yet decided who will receive their vote. The excuses range from them not being able to trust either candidate to there being more than just two parties. Being that there are many reasons why people are undecided it is hard to determine what will bring in those other voters, but if we take the time to recognize some their concerns and enact some of the suggestions made, then maybe we can persuade the undecided voter that John McCain is the way to go.
The main goal of this communications overhaul is to sway Obama voters, capture undecided votes, and maintain the votes we already have. We have hit the final leg of the election and there are quite a few things we can do to turn the odds in our favor. Figuring out ways to sway the undecided voters and pulling Obama voters into our camp is the goal. With both candidates have a high chance of winning the presidential election, we have analyzed the strengths and weakness of our own communication strategies and come up with ideas to put us on top.

Americans...

are stupid....

I mean if you want to vote for McCain, do so... no one is stopping you....But the amount of BS we tend to make up to slight another candidate is laughable....

for instance....

Barack Obama "is a communist...(did you know that?)
...muslim......(eventhough he's renounced this many times)
...african american.....(yes, this is written all over his face)
...thinks he's John Kennedy...(and here I am thinking that he thinks he's Barack Obama)
...is against/has issues with women....(um Hilary was his opponent and Palin is a idiot, I'd have problems too)
"

I swear Americans are too dumb for their own good....

I'm done....had to vent quickly before I write this paper supporting John McCain....

the teacher thought it would be funny for a class full of Obama supporters to help John McCain figuratively win the election....

Wide Calf Madness!

Recreation #2...More Fun with Mehron...

Re-did a look from fall 2007....
before
i used my mehron palette again, as a base for the pink...
it really made the color pop...








tut!

October 10, 2008

Mehron...


So I heard all the hype about Mehron Paradise 8 Color Palettes...
So I bought one about a month ago...
So yesterday, when I probably should have been studying....I played with my Mehron palette....
I have the pastel palette and this is the look I came up with...







then I slapped on some foundation....yum...jesse's girl cosmetics....




and then for gits and shiggles..."leopard spots"...
my first time trying them...they are way harder to do than i thought...

I used the blue 2nd from the end...

here are some swatches which you most likely have seen already....
(probably not on brown skin, tho...)

flash
no flash
flash
no flash

no flash
the colors are great as a base.... they stay put and brighten up anything you put over them....
getting the consistency right takes practice and is the hardest part...after you've mastered that you can do anything with them...
more looks to come....
I plan on getting the primary, tropical, and metallic palettes eventually...
how i wish there were theatre stores near me...

E.O.Yester.D.

So I did a recreation of this look from sometime last year...
I had just begun to play with makeup....



So I did this yesterday... and I think it turned out nice you know nothing too special or complicated...









I think I'm going to do a series of recreations just so I can see for myself how far I've come....and a testament to how far I can go....

Erg! She's So Not Busting Windows....But he is....




I totally love this song....

To bad the video is sooooooo wack....

Ehh...

On another note...

I've been a firm supporter of him since his first appearance on the Apollo...

Here's his new video....

October 6, 2008

Just a compilation of a few things I've done relatively recently...

yep...so this was something i just threw on before class....

it matched my shirt 100%....



and I wore this look all day before i realized that the eyes were blended differently...

one's a little smokey....while the other is a little bit like a cut crease....



and for a church event....
this one was actually a happy accident...
cause i originally had a bright yellow in the inner eye.... but it was horrible....so i blended a little bit of the rust color over the yellow...and it created this banging gold-ish color....



and i know you've seen this one... but I'm basically showing off my new found red lip....






Whatcha think?

Makeup Addiction...

So I'm a collge student and even though I no doubt should be spending on things pertinent to my education....

I don't...

I buy makeup...often....and while I'm not crazy and going out and buying $400 worth of M.A.C. twice a month... I will spend $40 I basically don't have on something I most likely have an exact dupe of in my makeup cases....


Argh... I really think that I'm going to have a makeup section in my budget when I graduate....Hopefully, I'll stick to it....maybe...LOL....


It's ridiculous....and my friends are like "Christa, You know you have that/you have more than enough"....

ERG! Well, Yeah....Just expressing something most makeup lovers have heard before....

I really do love the stuff...The experimentation that comes with buying something new.... trying a brand new color (that they say shouldn't work for your skin color) and making it look great....Just expressing my style in my clothes, and shoes, and skin, eyes, lips, cheeks... is great....


No wonder it's a billion dollar business....

You think they put drugs in the makeup so you'll become addicted?...

You know what makeup has taught me? Do what you want.... be yourself and be confident...

A lot of people think that people wear makeup to cover up their flaws....and while it does cover up your flaws....I also empowers you to do what you want in life.... and gives you lots of confidence....

You have to be bold to draw so much attention to your face right? Blue/Pink/Yellow/Orange/Purple eyeshadow...most definitely grabs the eye....

Anywho....Enough Rambling...


Be Blessed!
