    One Nation under God has turned into One Nation under the influence of one drug Television, the drug of the Nation Breeding ignorance and feeding radiation T.V., it satellite links our United States of unconciousness Apathetic therapeutic and extremely addictive the methadone metronome pumping out a 150 channels 24 hours a day you can flip through all of them and still there's nothing worth watching
