    Thanks. I read the OP and then the source. I thought Skwim did an excellent job of presenting the story by the small changes he made. My opinion would be the same regardless, but I like the irony.

    Ben knew a thing or two that would be much the same today as it was when he came up with it.

    I'm up for changing the national motto of the US by selling it to the highest bidder.

    "I'm lovin' it", anyone?

    Religious freedom is the cornerstone of our unity. WIlliam Cooper who I do not like very much said it brilliantly in the following speech starting the 4th minute into the video:

    I thought he went to France to investigate stories about ladies and pants and dance. Ben. He was way ahead of his time.

    The current motto is the result of a Cold War knee jerk response to the Godless Soviets. Got to stop them. Turns out they were doing most of their own stopping themselves. They were just very good at hiding that and making it look like they were so far ahead.

    You should watch the Cooper video I posted. It's the way I think we need to think about religion in this country.

    (1) If it's legal in the USA to have "In God we trust" on the currency, it's surely legal to have it in schools. See the many Supreme Court rulings on this.
    (2) Is there no forum rule on posting fake news? If not there should be one.
    (3) You unbelievers need to get over yourselves.

    Our currency is owned by a private bank. It's not associated with the government, despite It's misleading name: "Federal Reserve".

    ...In the same way, bank of America could write "in God we Trust" on their checks and debit cards if they wanted to.

    If you can't bother presenting your evidence why should I bother doing it for you? .............I shouldn't.

    Hey, it was March Fools Day. :p In any case, sorry you got taken in and are feeling sheepish for it. But :D

    So you believers can have an unobstructed shot at the gullible? Never!..... Never!......... Never!

    Hmm, maybe I can interest the USA in licensing my own "Morituri Delendi"?

    About time I got some bucks out of it...
