Propaganda... what an overused term. Seems like when someone cannot think of anything else to say about a country they do not like or agree with then they automatically consider everything that government does as Propaganda. Do you think that once in awhile we could use more of the dictionary to describe our concerns? So I guess tax relief is Propaganda, what about Social Security? Oh yeah... I know what it is... the Lottery right? Because the government wants you to spend all of your money on that so you will remain in poverty and they can continue to keep you down. Or is it the school system? They are everywhere... teaching our children... now that must be Propaganda! Or is it the Liquor store on the corner... there goes "the man" trying to keep you down! Oh wait... it is the Projects... yeah the Projects (public housing for you PC people) that must be Propaganda. Then it must be the WAR... yep that's it... the WAR! Get a grip and maybe go out and have some fun once in awhile, and stop using words that are so overused they deserve to be retired. From someone so tired of hearing the word Propaganda that I have sat down and wrote a small paragraph telling you what I think of the word and those who use it.
