I need some input....

Postby rocco33 » Wed Nov 01, 2006 11:03 pm

I am having a real hard time coming up with good slogans or sayings for the purposes of <!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://www.freewayblogger.com/">www.freewayblogger.com/</a><!--EZCODE LINK END-->freeway blogging to try to shake people up to get involved. The old stand-by's of "Osama Bin Forgotten", "No one Died When Clinton Lied"(sic), and "Bush Lied" just doesn't seem to cut it anymore. Not enough punch. <br><br>If <!--EZCODE ITALIC START--><em><!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>you</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--></em><!--EZCODE ITALIC END--> could paint a cardboard sign or protest banner, what would you want to say? What do you think would make people <!--EZCODE ITALIC START--><em>really</em><!--EZCODE ITALIC END--> think. I mean to the point of actually voting or even better, beginning to pay attention to politics more closely as every North American should right now.<br><br> It's the season of dumb and banner right now. The NFL is heating up and "Dancing to the Stars" is really drawing them in droves. I feel our only chance might be a Oaxaca-style civl disobedience en masse. We've had Cindy Sheehan and the Iraq Veterans for Peace for over 3 years, and it's just not cutting it. Earlier this month, Sheehan and Kovic only drew 3000 people in Cal as reported by Indymedia. Apathy has set in. <br><br>Any thought-provoking slogans or downright shocking statements that can fit on a sign or banner would be much appreciated. I've come up with an idea that I want to convey corporate fascism that will slide us into a police state and Marxism, but I'm stuck. <br><br> I can't think of a better gathering of minds than this forum for witty and/or hard-hitting one-liners than this forum. <br><br>Thanks for your help in advance. <p></p><i></i>

hey rocco - months ago when I first encountered freewayblogger it provided a real boost of spirit, so I want to let you know how much your efforts are appreciated.<br><br>Also want to say that it can only be a good sign when you recognize that a formerly potent vibe is getting stale. That's sometimes a hard thing to accept, but it's often necessary for sustained efforts.<br><br>I just saw your request and nothing's popping to mind, but I'll give it some thought. Meanwhile, there's something about a couple of Forgetting2's ideas that stand out.<br><br>"Forget Torture , Go Shopping" and "Ignore the War , Watch TV" have this interestingly oblique effect in that they don't exhort novel behavior, they convey a jolt by naming what you're probably already doing. <p></p><i></i>

slogan

Postby jingofever » Thu Nov 02, 2006 5:21 am

Last week I read an opinion article about attitudes of soldiers during wars. One phrase summing up their attitudes struck me as very profound and really captures the zeitgeist, though I doubt you could use it. "Fuck this shit." Sure I've read and spoke it many times before, but in the context it really zapped me good. <p></p><i></i>
