My country ’tis of thee,
Sweet land of felony,
Of thee I sing—
                                      —Ambrose Bierce
There is no distinctly American criminal class – except Congress.
—Mark Twain
How is it that we hear the loudest yelps for liberty
 from the drivers of Negroes?
Samuel Johnson
If we ever pass out as a great nation, we ought to put on our tombstone: “America died from a delusion that she had moral leadership.”
Will Rogers
It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence never to practice either of them.
—Mark Twain
If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal.
Emma Goldman
It’s just your jive talkin’
You’re telling me lies, yeah
Jive talkin’
—Bee Gees
Dear Uncle Sam
We in China admire you Uncle Sam
Because 
You Uncle Sam can
Just like the candy man can
Who can talk the talk and never walk the walk 
Uncle Sam can
Just like the candy man can
Who can wax 
So lyrical
So eloquent
So poetic
So powerful
About Democracy 
With ringing words
Such as these 
That still move the whole world 
To the ecstasy of conviction & commitment
That moved me to walk on pilgrimage to America from Africa
Words like—
. . . that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain; 
that this nation shall have a new birth of freedom; 
and that this government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth
Words like—
Let every nation know, 
whether it wishes us well or ill, 
that we shall pay any price, 
bear any burden, 
meet any hardship, 
support any friend, 
oppose any foe, 
in order to assure 
the survival and the success of liberty
This much we pledge—and more— and not mean a word of it!
And dance with every goddamn dictator in the world 
And practice daily at home and abroad
Government of the moneyed, by the moneyed, for the moneyed 
Yankee Doodle dandy keeps going around the world 
Resurrecting Empire
Unleashing drones & deviltry everywhere
Yankee Doodle dandy  declared war 
On Islam
On every Moslem 
And called it Democracy
Please Uncle Sam
Teach us Chinese rulers 
How to talk that jive talking in China
How to play that shell game
How to promise Shangri-La and deliver shanty towns and Homelessness galore! 
How to put in place Slick Willy’s system of government in China
That makes half of America not even to bother to vote
How to promise choice and deliver only Hobson’s Choice!
How to promise a choice and deliver only an echo
In China we say
With no money you are a worm
With money you are a dragon
Just like your Dragon Lady Hilary
Who singlehandedly selected Bejoale 
As the president of Somalia!
Yes
Uncle Sam can
Just like the candy man can
Uncle Sam sure got that Can-Do Spirit for jive talkin’
Uncle Sam can even seduce God
Yes, Uncle Sam has that seductive power of economic dollarism
You can cut out colonialism, imperialism and all other kind of ism, 
but it’s hard for you to cut that dollarism
When [ Uncle Sam ] drops those dollars on you, 
you’ll fold . . . 
Chinese 
Japanese 
Money please
And China got plenty of money
And China got plenty of dollars
Please Uncle Sam teach us Chinese your jive talkin’
Teach us
How to talk the talk and never walk the walk
How to talk a good game
You never intend to play
How to be blowhard
How to boast
And not even deliver a small cold roast
How to promise Democracy
And deliver Democrazy
And deliver Demoncrazy
How to promise
The American Dream
And deliver
The American Air-conditioned Nightmare.
—Mohamud Siad Togane

… Hillary Clinton, US secretary of state
Jumping from the chair she sat in
As the Madam Secretary of State of the American Empire
Hilary chose me as President of Somalia when we met in Nairobi
Time, you thief! 
Who just loves to get
Sweets into your list
Put that in
Say I’m Aqoon Yare
Say I’m Bejoale
Say I am Afgadud
Say I am the KAPO of the Somali Kleptocracy 
Say that wit & wisdom have missed me
Say I’m an Abgal donkey driver
Say I am not as moxie as the Macavity Mystery Majerten
But add-
Hilary Clinton chose me when we met in Nairobbery
And that is why I am today the President of Somalia!
