    That's because there's a demand for pizza.

    Ain't no demand for "food plates". People will look at that, go, "gee, a round food pyramid. We never paid no mind to the food pyramid, we ain't payin' no mind to this. Yo! Three Double-Doubles and a coke!"

    My original point is that subliminal messaging works, that's all. And it's not like the entire $2 million is being spent solely on a graphic.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    No.

    Subliminal messaging only works to re-inforce desires a person has. All the subliminal advertising in the world isn't going to make people eat less fritos and more broccoli.

    In order for it to work people have to care. People don't care about this.

    Then they need to start, because it is a huge (no pun intended) issue in America today.

    Untrue. Or else many advertisers wouldn't bother.

    I dunno, however small the effect is, that effect spread out over 300 million people might mean something.

    Hence the education portion of the spending.
