Okay, over on Great Debates there’s a thread (That I would link to, but I’m a UBB pansy) where everybody’s discussing our current National motto:
“In God We Trust”
(Now if you’re thinking, ‘Hey, that’s not MY national motto’, then you’re clearly not from the USA and your opinion probably doesn’t matter, anyway.)
Seems the Supreme Court may soon have to rule on the constitutionality of the motto, and since they will probably rule against it, I think it’s high time to suggest a new (non-religious) motto for the Best Nation On Earth ™.
Anyway a few suggestions to get us going:
“Simply the Best”
“North of Mexico, South of Canada, Light Years Ahead of Everybody Else”
“The One Remaining Superpower”
“Home of the Annoying Slogan!”
“Liberty, Justice, and Really Weak Beer”
Feel free to comment or add your own. (Even you poor, disadvantage, foriegn folks can play. Unless you’re from Canada. You can all take your Molson’s and shove them up your @$$. )
Michael Moore has a bunch of good suggestions on this one:
American: our citizens are armed and they like to shoot.
A place for a really good burger
Also suggests changing the name of the country to “The Big One”
Kinda like that
“It was a really good idea at the time.”
“America. You’ll come for the freedom…but you’ll stay for the welfare!”
“Freedom was over rated”
“…And then there were none” (refering to our rights)
America. You don’t like us? We’ll kick your ass!
“America- We choose our own corrupt leaders”
“America: the freedom to be yourself, and the freedom to allow others to kick your ass for it.”
“Homeland of eugenics”
“Our chief executive gets more head!”
“America: love it or go back to your Third World squalor.”
“Give us your poor, your downtrodden, your good pro baseball prospects.”
“Undefeated champion in World Wars.”
First in Political Correctness
We used to choose our own corrupt leaders,
now we let the Chinese do it.
America, liberals hate it so it must be good
“Guns, guns, guns … you got a problem with that?”
“Smoke 'em if ya got 'em”
“Soccer, Schmoccer - We play REAL Football”
“Craziest Friggin’ Postal Workers on Earth”
“Yo quiero Taco Bell”
“Got any dictators you want bombed?”
“Proud exporters of Hamburger Helper - Yum”
Any one of the above would work for me.
“America – We Could Have Been a Helluva Great Country.”
Thanx and a tip of the hat to EASY RIDER.
When the gold dollar coin was first shown on the web, I made it my wallpaper. But I didn’t like the motto, so I touched it up to say “We Go In Trust”, which seemed to work with the sleeping baby. Not sure if it would work so well on the other coins.
Kickin’ ass is what we do - iron foot in the velvet shoe.
America–Illusions of Grandeur
Tastes great. Less filling.
America–Where People Fight for Mediocrity Every Day.
Let me see that thong.
Oh, now I’m carried away.
“3rd rate porn for a 1st world country”
“Everything you say may and will be used against you in a court of law”
“Home of the hypocrit”
“Tv and beer; Fuck everything else”
‘250 million people can’t be wrong … can they?’
‘have democracy, will abuse it’
‘you talkin’ to me?’
‘forward not backward, sideways not forward and always twirling twirling twirling’
’ 1 out of 10 other countries prefer us - we can kick the others asses though’
‘In corruption we trust’
can’t think of any more right now
an actual sign I saw years ago in LA:
GUNS - LIQUOR - 24HRS
