oh shit the 139th is a Public Affairs Detachment  :lulz: :lulz: :lulz: :lulz: in Illinois, but still.

The fact that it's a Public Affairs Detachment makes it even better  :lulz:

This one might need some tightening up:

Words. Words are powerful tools. Words have definition. Words convey ideas. Words can influence your thinking. Words get hijacked. Words get changed. Words convey ideas they weren’t meant to convey. Words control you. Words become vitriol. Words become venom. Words become meaningless. Words become buzzwords. Words become memes. Words become tropes. Words become noise. Words become symbols and slogans. Words to make you nervous and afraid. Words that are idle chatter, repeated without thought, a screensaver for the brain.

Words like Hope, Change, Bias, Right-Wing, Terrorist, Socialism, Libertarian, Anarchy and Atheist.
Words like Extremist, Fringe, Fascist, Fanatic, Nazi, Liberal, Mosque, Government and God.
Words like Intellectual, Environmentalist, Activist, Elite, Science, Immigrant, Death Panels, Refudiate,  and Blood-Libel.
Words like Freedom, Security, Taxes, Conspiracy, Gay Agenda, Evolution, Theory and anything ending in -care, -ist, -ism, -nomics or -gate.

Words.
Do you use words to express your thoughts? Or do you let your thoughts express your words?

I feel that way about this one. It wants something. Also I think I am getting too zany and outlandish with the labels.

I like that one, but you're right. Maybe a change in one word or something will bring it together. And outlandish is ok for this sort of thing. It catches people's attention. At the very least it entertains them. Each one is going to get a different reaction. More official ones are going to be more jarring and create some uncertainty in the reader, whereas the outlandish ones will probably put some people off and thinking it's some joke disk. I'll use them all, but I might be selective about who I give the zany to.

I think I figured out what I want to change about mine. I'm focusing more on words as fnords (also shows political bias) whereas my intent was to show how words are more like viruses that do thinking for you, whether they're beneficial or not. Maybe If I chop it up so that I say something like "Words to make you nervous like, Terrorist, Socialist, etc..." And then another where it's like "Words to tell you who you are, like Libertarian, Liberal, etc..."

This would have the added benefit of possibly putting it in more of a songlike format. Cuz if it sounds like free form poetry, well, we know how people generally feel about poetry....

I'm going to sleep on it and give it another go tomorrow evening. We have another storm rolling in here anyway, so it's probably a good a time as any to work on it.

ETA: and yes, sissy emo kids, lol

Having trouble tweaking my words rant right. I'll shelve it for now and move on to whatever grabs my rant gland next.

Suggestion: Write on the CD "TOP SECRET" or "CONFIDENTIAL". Then leave it lying around. Guaranteed to spark someones curiosity.
- So the New World Order does not actually exist?
- Oh it exists, and how!
Ask the slaves whose labour built the White House;
Ask the slaves of today tied down to sweatshops and brothels to escape hunger;
Ask most women, second class citizens, in a pervasive rape culture;
Ask the non-human creatures who inhabit the planet:
whales, bears, frogs, tuna, bees, slaughtered farm animals;
Ask the natives of the Americas and Australia on whose land
you live today, on whose graves your factories, farms and neighbourhoods stand;
ask any of them this, ask them if the New World Order is true;
they'll tell you plainly: the New World Order… is you!

Sorry, if you posted them in here, I didn't see them, I just read the first page and then went "Fuck reading everything else I just wanna post my idea" and did it.

So you know, small minds think alike.
