I'll Give You a Hint

Not THIS Homer; the Greek poet, man...

Homer noted that it’s a wise child who knows his own father.

Shakespeare said that it was a wise father who knows his own child.

Me, I think the important thing is to know who your friends are.

And who your enemies are, too.

According to the late-breaking news and official white-house sources, our enemies are Muslim terrorists. They keep telling us that.

But who is that at the airport feeling up you and your spouse and your kids, in direct defiance of your 4th amendment guarantee against unreasonable searches?

I’ll give you a hint: they aren’t “Muslim Terrorists.”

And who are those pimps in the black robes who’ve given the legal stamp for corporations to buy elections, and just gave the nod to any cop anywhere who arrests anybody for anything, no matter how minor, to strip search you?

I’ll give you a hint: they aren’t “Muslim Terrorists.”

How about those corporate whores who passed “laws” like the “Patriot Act?” Who are those scumbags who take a cut of your hard-earned money off the top so they can funnel it to their pals in the defense industry, and the prison industry and the banking industry?

I’ll give you a hint: they aren’t “Muslim Terrorists.”

Who is that who’s tazering, and gassing and beating and shooting people in the streets? Who’s wearing those badges?

I’ll give you a hint: they aren’t “Muslim Terrorists.”

And what about that guy who thinks he owns you the way kings of old owned their serfs, that guy who claims the authority to kidnap you, torture you or just kill you all on his own ipse dixit?

I’ll give you a hint: he isn’t a “Muslim Terrorist.”

Who took away your freedom to speak, to assemble, to petition for redress of grievances; your right to be secure in your person and effects from unreasonable searches; your right to due process before an impartial judge and a jury of your peers; your right to be left the hell alone; in short, your inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?

Who was it exactly who stole that from you?

I’ll give you a hint.
