Another slogan I never understood is "God Bless America". The phrase is always used without any kind of context or meaning. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=9cwOqKfEYTg

It isn't a slogan or a phrase. I've never heard it used without context.

Well,if it's not a slogan nor a phrase,what is it,then? And what context is it ever used in?The US politicians and patriots always say it for no reason at all

Please watch the video I posted in my comment,and it will explain you how "God Bless America" is really an empty slogan with no real meaning,and will explain why national/ethnic pride(AKA patriorism and nationalism) is also really stupid

Sorry, I don't click on links in discussions, if you have original thoughts then you can state them, if I need to research something, I know how to use google.

Every year we celebrate coming to this country; 6 days ago we celebrated 27 years. At our family celebration, we end every toast with God Bless America. It is no different to us than saying Amen at the end of a prayer. Whenever we see news about the shithole we came from, we again stay God Bless America. In this context, these are words of gratitude, like saying "thank you very much" to someone. When we see good things happen to good people in this country, we say God Bless America. In this context, it is an exclamation of pride, like seeing my own Father being honored for something and proudly exclaiming "that's my Dad over there".

There's 3 examples of context … none of them are slogans, none of them meaningless.

OK,those are some pretty nice examples you have there(especially the second one),though I fail to understand the third one.Something good happened to somebody,why would you be proud? I remember walking through the town I live in and see a friend of mine find some money lying on the street,and I wasn't proud of him,because why should I be?

I don't understand pride in general.You gave a great example up there:your father did something and got honored for it,and you proudly say "that's my dad over there". Ummm,okaaay? Does that have anything to do with him getting honored? Will you be honored for what he did just because you're his son? Bottom line:How pathetic do you have to be to tie yourself to achievements of others and had nothing to do with?

And though you did present some good examples,"God Bless America" is still very often used withput any context,even here on imgflip. imgflip.com/tag/god%20bless%20america?page=1 Just see how many memes are there with a "god bless america" tag which use the phrase without any context.And you might say that they're using the phrase out of patriotism(pride in your own country),but then,I'd tell you to read the upper paragraph about pride once again

Being proud is not the same as taking credit for someone else's achievement.

Anyway, you can analyze my examples all you want, but I think I provided enough to show that you were wrong to call it a slogan or a meaningless phrase. I have no desire to convince you of anything, only wanted to share my point of view.
