LULLA-BYE TO FREE SPEECH

Hush, little blogger, don't say a word,
It's best you become part of the mindless herd.
And if you feel the need for a political rant,
Mama's going to recommend you keep it scant.
And if you continue to question authority,
DHS will consider your unlawful captivity.
And if this warning won't keep you mum,
Government's going to classify you a terrorist scum.
And if you still think your speech is free,
Try selling 9-11 as a conspiracy.
Your NSA file will have an "enemy combatant" stamp,
And soon you'll be heading off to a detention camp.
So if you know what's good for you,
Keep your posts in check and your attitude too.
Now shut your mouth and watch Fox News,
Enjoy your IQ drop and let it be your muse.

What can I say, reading your blog is always a delight. I've been reading a little on this issue and I am sure you have ironically described its core! Keep it up, provided you will still be able to :P

And for all the lies and all things wrong
We close our eyes and silence the song
but comes this blog from the ashes and the dust
To bring us truth and a little bit of trust

Alina, thank you! I find your blog very refreshing as well...and love your photoblog.

Anonymous, it sad because it is true.

Sabizak, thanx, I am chuffed!

Hani, cheers! :)

Mohammad, I don't mind, as long as you provide the requisite link back here.

ZAK, good idea! I think I'll work on an mp3 version of this..seriously.

Fairydust, You are too kind. I wouldn't mind writing for a paper but then mostly likely I'd have to taper down a lot of what I write, which of course wouldn't be much fun.

Jaded, as always you flatter me in your most eloquent way..

Teeth Maestro, lol! Stop those rumours before you get me into trouble. As for the spin, I am actually countering the spin that comes from them mainstream media..and try to tell it like it is.
