I was thinking we should come up with some new snazzy mottos for our respective countries, something which more accurately reflects the times.

Ill begin with the USA, stolen from my signature...

"If I do not beat her, she will not be scared enough to obey me."

"...things I have neither seen nor experienced nor heard tell of from anybody else; things, what is more, that do not in fact exist and could not ever exist at all. So my readers must not believe a word I say." -Lucian on his book True History

"...They accept such things on faith alone, without any evidence. So if a fraudulent and cunning person who knows how to take advantage of a situation comes among them, he can make himself rich in a short time." -Lucian critical of early Christians c.166 AD From his book, De Morte Peregrini

OK.

Canada -- Just leave us the hell out of it
Switzerland -- We're neutral and have all the money
France -- Celebrating our 65 year without surrendering to a major foreign power
Cuba -- Pissing off the US for over 40 years

Am I missing something? Didn't that story take place in Iran? Is there allot of wife beating in the USA

USA - "Born again, Assault Carrying, Homophobes."

I would rather face a cold reality than delude myself with comforting fantasies.

Canada: The clean America, without the fundies
Iraq: Most talked about country for 5 years running
America: Remember the good old days of the 90's?
Mexico: Our best export is our own people!
North Korea: What do we have to do to get some attention?
South Korea: HEEEEEEELLLLLLPPPP
Russia: Change is hard
Columbia: Drug capital of North America

Edit:

I like this one better:

America: Divided we fall, and oh boy are we falling.

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.
