Too much like the "motherland". They really should quit saying it!! And get rid of "homeland" security branch or rename it at least!! [/quote] Same here. Sounds like WW2 Russia or Germany. Homeland, Motherland...sick. It has permeated our culture since then in politics, law enforcement and television and film. It is all orchestrated and very 1984. [/quote] And like an earlier poster said, you just get used to hearing it. The only way to resist this kind of thing is to be aware of it. Being able to pick up on the phrases they shove in our faces (but oh so subtly) has proven to be very revealing. [/quote]
During his live speech regarding Iraq, the president
referred to the United States as the 'Homeland'. For some reason, every time I hear a politician say that it gives me the creeps, like a flash of foreign armies marching across the plains of Nebraska
I did some looking around, and I guess I'm not the only one. First time I heard it was from Bush, and it's been cropping up a lot more lately.
Does anyone else get a prickling in the back of the neck when you hear it? I'm an American living in the
, not the 'Homeland'!
I know I'm not the only one. I found this link from back in '02.
