It's All So Confusing

I have to admit, I am a bit confused. By no means do I want to get into politics here, but I have to say that I am a bit confused.

I can't tell if there's marketing involved.

This week Barack Obama wins the Nobel Peace prize at the same time we are sending more troops into war at the same time that the news shows are profiling troops around the world with stories that range from troop camaraderie (it is a career choice after all) to abusive foreign leadership to "why aren't we spending this money on our issues at home?"

It's so confusing, and I get that there's no answer here. At all. But is there marketing involved? Is there a marketing objective that is being executed against? I believe that there is no coincidence in good marketing, so how could all this be happening all at the same time.

If it is marketing, I don't think it's very good. It's too confusing with lots of mixed messages. Maybe it's marketing by committee, that could be it. Or is it just politics driving unbelievable inefficiency with absolutely no coordinated effort? Or just the complexity of life around the world?

I as much as anybody understand putting the marketing machine into action. Even the government has a marketing machine, and I mean no political bias by that statement. But I still find it all so confusing.

Is it marketing or just life as we know it?

What's your experience? Jim
