    Mike, you misunderstood. I was not suggesting replacing the state motto. I was saying that instead of the state motto on the plates, something else could be on it.

    I was mentioning that in VA, different backgrounds and mottos can be put on specialty licence plates. One example is the "Kids First" plate. Is there a law that states that the state motto has to appear on every plate?

    hmmmmm.....
    i choose "russian revolution." that would go much better on the plate.

    i like the d.c. license plates that said "taxation without representation." talk about stickin' it!

    replace the state motto with something less disheartening.
    For example?

    The current state motto was born out of the American Revolution while the colonies were wrestling out from under Great Britain's control.

    The Confederate States fought a Civil War rather than be subjected to the will of a federal government.

    Then there's --
    Russian Revolution
    French Revolution
    Guy Fawkes
    Warsaw Ghetto Uprising
    French Resistance
    Native American Resistance
    ...

    What is disheartening about freedom from tyranny?

    Does NH have a specialty licence place program where groups can petition for different background designs on the plate? If so, maybe it would be possible to replace the state motto with something less disheartening.

    A few years ago there was a guy in New Hampshire who was prosecuted for covering up the state motto on his car license plate. As I recall it, he was (or said he was) a Jehovah's Witness and believed that dying for lack of freedom was taking power out of God's hands, or something like that.

    Anyway, for refusing to drive around saying "Live free or die" they threatened him with jail. We can't have that kind of freedom here!

    Oh wait! Now I get it! "Live Free Or Die" has to do with the fact that license plates are stamped with "dies" and if you don't live free you have to go to prison and "die" the license plates. Simple! LOL.

    It's possible that they don't. Because as each one stamps a plate, wouldn't they die?

    does anyone else find in humorous that "live free or die" is stamped on license plates by prison inmates?

    of course, for all i know, inmates don't stamp new hampshire's license plates. if they don't, please don't tell me, because it would totally ruin the humor.

    Actually Vermont is probably the most conservative state in the old sense of Conservative, namely, 'I'm not harming anyone so mind your own business!'
    Uh... Vermont practices socialism, that is, hands deep in your pockets because someone needs it more than you do... they say, according to them, without asking you, resistance is futile.

    You might mean neighboring New Hampshire. "Live Free or Die!"

    Please remember that the story is about a town in Vermont, the most liberal state in the northeast. Atitudes there are more likely to favor freedom.

    I've heard the younger generation has a more relaxed, tolerant attitude about nudity...

    Where did you hear that? Much more often naturists say the exact opposite, and guys who go to gyms and the like say that you can see bizarre things in locker rooms, like young men showering with clothes on. At some schools they've simply closed up the showers permananently as nobody was using them. This Brattleboro thing was amusing, but in general what we're seeing is that the young people who went nude a few decades ago are now middle-aged people who go nude, and their kids are a seriously modest bunch. It even adds to the problems of attracting young people to naturism that they look around and see folk like their parents nude, and at that point they're gone. Once our tanned wrinkly bodies are underground, all the nudist resorts can become sites for shopping malls where the next generation can buy their clothes.

    I've heard the younger generation has a more relaxed, tolerant attitude about nudity... but I wonder, are they more tolerant/accepting than young generations of the past or do most Americans (of all generations) just get more prudish as they go "over the hill"?

    I wonder if there is any data out there on this (say comparing people in the 18-22 age group in the '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, & '00s).

    This town sounds awesome, I wish it was this way in my town when I was a teen. I feel these teens are expressing themselves in several ways. They are obviously comfortable with their bodies and don't care who sees them naked, which is great. There also showing that being naked doesn't mean sex, as there is no mention in the article that the teens were doing anything sexual, so therefore they truly are in the early stages of nudism, and I wouldn't be surprised to find out some of them have been into nudism for awhile. This is great to see, as I truly believe that the future of nudism depends alot on young people and getting them involved.

    Someone smarter than me would have to come up with the actual wording to ensure this.
    Any takers?
