I heard the US Mint was going to replace "In god we trust" with "We bomb brown people"

You are spot on.

And your comment reminded me of this:

Alex, your political posts are quite disappointing. If you disagree or agree with the opinions being expressed on this topic, then state them. But statements like this are hardly "effective" in either direction.

I am sure if any of us knew an "effective" way to change things, then we would have. Things don't move quickly (unless we are talking about civil war, and even in that case things take many years) and there is enough propaganda to squash any good ideas.

"No army can defeat an idea whose time has come".

This thread is but one small example of how ideas can spread. The idea that war is only good for its promoters and not for "the people".

LOOK BACK... on history, nothing much has changed
THOUSANDS... of soldiers of all countries, all marching the same
Every nation's leader says that our side is right
Every nation's leader says the time has come to fight
But they use the common people to settle their scores
IT'S TIME THAT WE REFUSE TO FIGHT IN ANY OF THEIR WARS!

We're looking to start a new army, (that's) too smart to fight, too smart to die
We're looking to start a new army, (that's) too smart to fight, too smart to kill
For you
For you!

JOIN NOW... the ranks of all nations who refuse to go to war
REFUSE... to pull the trigger of a gun for leaders 'round the world
I'd rather fight to spread some tolerance & unity
Than buy into their nationalistic brainwashing
Killing mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, common human beings
Not savages but people, like you, like me!

We're looking to start a new army, (that's) too smart to fight, too smart to die
We're looking to start a new army, (that's) too smart to fight, too smart to kill

We're looking to start a new army, (that's) too smart to fight, too smart to die
We're looking to start a new army, (that's) too smart to fight, too smart to kill
For you!

We're looking for a few good men
We're looking for a few good womyn
Who are not afraid to fight against tyranny
But who refuse to fight....with tyranny...tyranny
(refuse!) [x16]

We're looking to start a new army, (that's) too smart to fight, too smart to die
We're looking to start a new army, (that's) too smart to fight, too smart to kill

We're looking to start a new army, (that's) too smart to fight, too smart to die
We're looking to start a new army, (that's) too smart to fight, too smart to kill
For you
For you!

You've gotta die, gotta die, gotta die for your government?
Die for your country? That's ****!
There's a Gulf War vet, dying a slow, cold death
And the government says, "We don't know the source of his sickness."
But don't believe what they say, because your government is lying
They've done it before and don't you know they'll do it again
A secret test, government built virus
"Subject Test Group: Gulf Battle Field Troops"
You've gotta die, gotta die, gotta die for your government?
Die for your country? That's ****!
First World War veterans slaughtered, by General Eisenhower
You give them your life, they give you a stab in the back
Radiation, agent orange, tested on US souls
Guinea pigs for Western corporations
I never have, I never will
Pledge allegiance to their flag
You're getting used, you'll end up dead!
You've gotta die, gotta die, gotta die for your government?
Die for your country? That's ****!
I don't need you to tell me what to do
And I don't need you to tell me what to be... **** YOU!
I don't need you to tell me what to say
And I don't need you to tell me what to think! What to think!
What to think, what to think, what to think, think, think, think!
You've gotta die, gotta die, gotta die for your government?
Die for your country? That's ****!

You push and push a people, what are they to do?
Soon this corporate run government will be through
See, it doesn't represent the people anymore
Big business are the pimps and governments' their ******
We don't need more time to talk over a solution
We know what we need, we need a ******* revolution

We don't need your war machine, or your filthy blood stained dollars
We’ve got one thing you ain’t got
We’ve got, we've got, we've got... got the numbers!

To you the masses are not even human beings
We’re dogs that will be grateful for any scraps you leave
But even dogs will only put up with so much abuse
Keep stealing from us like you are we're gonna let loose
We don't need more time to talk over a solution
We know what we need, we need a ******* revolution

We don't need your war machine, or your filthy blood stained dollars
We’ve got one thing you don't have
We’ve got, we've got, we've got... got the numbers!
We’ve got...we have... we've got the numbers!

We don't need more time to talk over a solution
We know what we need, we need a ******* revolution!!!

We don't need your war machine, or your filthy blood stained dollars
We’ve got one thing you ain’t got
We’ve got, we've got, we've got... got the numbers!

I always thought if you want to change the world
Then you have to start with yourself
So if the heads of state want to end terrorism
They should go ahead and kill themselves

I will not sign my blind faith away
To an unjustly leader of the unjust police state
Corporate masters live in their cess pool
Of extreme wealth and excess
Whoa Oh

The phrase world leaders
Does not describe the heads of state
Those few in power
Work only for the corporate sake
No action, no interest, no humanity at all
As the corporate towers rise up
They watch the people fall

A governement run by the corporations of the world
Enslaving mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters
Profits put before people
Equal force, equal reaction
Equal suppression, equal intimidations
Equal propaganda, equal rebellion

We've got to make a change
No religions, sexual preference
And regardless of your race
We've got to make a change
No war, corporate run
Governements, no police state
We've got to make a change
For the good of the human race
And you still look me in the eye
And you still wonder why
Your cities ******* burn

No borders, no nations
No flags, no patriots

You can spoon my eyes out,
but I can still see through you
Slice my ears from my head,
but you can not shut out the sounds of truth
Lock off each sound at the wrist
so I can't raise my fist!

you can kill the protestor (can't kill)
you can't kill the protest
you can murder the rebel (murder)
you can't murder the rebellion

Sawed my feet at the ankles, but i wasnt going to run
Grabbed my face, sliced off my tongue
Lock off each hand at the wrist,
so I can't raise my fist!

you can kill the protestor (can't kill)
you can't kill the protest
you can murder the rebel (murder)
you can't murder the rebellion

LYING STILL NOW, NO WAY TO SPEAK. NOTHING TO FEAR, BULLETS CAN'T SILENCE IDEAS!

Surely you mean "anyway," as "anyways" isn't a word.

All of my political posts? Or just that one. By the way, it's not as easy as "I agree", or "I disagree". These aren't black and white issues. There isn't a clear right or a clear wrong. Anyone who claims they know, doesn't. Everything is speculation in threads like these because unless you experience it first hand you don't know. While deployed to Afghanistan and SEEING THINGS FIRST HAND, my eyes were opened to how false EVERY media outlet reports things. So if you want my honest opinion, most political posts are disappointing to me. Using word play and catch phrases to get people to think a certain way isn't informing BTW.

Well, right. I don't read all your posts. I understand where you are coming from (about media), but expressing opinions on a forum IS a good thing. At the very least you get to blow off some steam/frustration, and you may even get some "mental support" that your ideas aren't (or are) crazy.

Anyways, I (ironically) wanted to express my opinion.

Part of the problem is more people in America care what this person is up to than whether we do or don't bomb Syria.
