Some of us came from places where the new sheriff came and stayed. And
because just scaring didn't work after some time, he proceeded to hang and
hang and hang, murdering millions just to keep the rest properly scared.

Harsher view of the reality, if you wish. Or, rather, real life
Calling on government to come and fix problems which can conceivably be

HUAC[*] reading your e-mail to determine if it contains loathed
un-american terrorist-sponsoring spam. With Ashcroft being in charge of
grilling spammers. Or whomever he declared an enemy today.
