The New American
Five o’clock and all’s well. Five o’clock and all is not well. Five o’clock, six o’clock, a.m. or p.m., daylight-savings time or banker’s time, time to break out the weapons, mow down whatever looks suspicious, time to redefine suspicion along with anything else that’s … well, suspicious.
You can see where this is going. If not, step over here for the strip search. Remove your hands from in front of your crotch and assume a praying posture with your head bowed. This is how we identify traitors. We are the new we, you are the old we the people. Pump iron if you want, you’ll never get strong enough to lift this load.
The reason this proclamation has you scratching your head and searching for what you learned back in grade school when you saluted the flag is a top secret that only the man with his hand on the red button is privy to.
This should be enough to squelch your curiosity.
Brush up on obedience and march in lock step like the new American should.
