Due to a sudden but fortuitously timed business trip, I'll be in a position to go to the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear in DC on the 30th.  I'm going to bring a rally sign, naturally.  One side will have a reasonably sane message, the other will be baseless fearmongering.  Mongering may not be extreme enough - for this I'd fear for free.

Here's where you come in.  I've got slogans I can make posters of, sure, but I'm not above a crass bribe.

For a sufficiently large bitcoin donation, I'll write your slogan(s) in place of mine and display them at the rally.  This isn't a straight auction, since I want to balance BTC price with the catchiness of the slogan; the better your slogan is the cheaper I'll wave it for.  I'll make a final decision as close to 24 hours beforehand as I can make it, since I don't know what my schedule will be like.

The only requirement I have for your ideas is that they must fit with the rally themes; no bitcoin ads or DISREGARD THIS, but honest reasonability or unreasonable dishonesty.  Even though you can't be there, which I'm sure you have a very good reason for, I'm willing to spread the word about... y'know... the wombats.  Or zombies.  Wombat zombies.  Zombats.

As proof I've done this, I'll post a picture of your poster with something Washingtony in the background.  Like that obelisk, or Lincoln's feet, or maybe the rest of the rally.

Should I for whatever reason be unable to make it to the rally and post pictures afterwards, I'll of course refund your money.

Current slogans:
Reasonable: "Things are getting better" (0 BTC)
Fearful: "Your husband is fucking the babysitter" (0 BTC)

Is that sanity or fear?  It's so hard to tell sometimes.

Probably a moment of clarity rather than fear.

So, sanity then, but presented as fear by someone who's really butthurt about it.

For the people in the audience who aren't willing to click on every random youtube link, he's talking about it being a bad idea to hire a bunch of armed thugs (Blackwater) to run hog wild without restraint or oversight.

It's not paranoia if it's true, and it is.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

The sad part is they are hired with stolen money (tax) so you dont get a choice how your money is spent on armed thugs. Having the state with a monopoly is bad enough without them outsourcing it to private companies who we have even less control over. At a bare minimum at least you get the appearance of a say when you vote (thats not saying much!)
