Most Amerikans are monolingual
          — they hate it when you speak
                    anything but English

Most Amerikans don't vote
          — does that mean they're free
                    apathetic or disenfranchised?

Most Amerikans cannot tell you the meaning of Minnesota, Dakota,
          Massachusetts or Potomac
                    but they’re always “proud to be American”

Most Amerikans will insist on buying anything that they desire
          even if they can't afford it

Most Amerikans own more things
          than anyone else in the world

Most Amerikans think that if you live in Texas
          then you're Texan

Most Amerikans think that if you live in a place called "Hawaii"
          then you're "Hawaiian"

Most Amerikans would agree that stealing is a sin

Most Amerikans don't understand what leasehold land is
          but the bankers in Hawai'i do

Most Amerikans don't know that  N  F  S means
          NOT    FOR    SALE

Most Amerikans would be very disappointed if they went into a store
          and everything was  N  F  S
                    — that would be like going to a museum

Most Amerikans believe very strongly in their God
          and that their beliefs along with their daughters and sons are   N  F  S
                    NOT    FOR    SALE

Most Amerikans, however, don't really understand   N  F  S  especially when
          an individual aboriginal, native tribe or an indigenous group of people
                    insists that their lands are   N  F  S
                              NOT    FOR    SALE

Most Amerikans say they want world peace but they also
          want a piece of land
                    even when the land isn't theirs

Most Amerikans will say that Amerika doesn't tolerate H A T E
          especially when preparing for
                    or in the midst of war

Most Amerikans don't realize that selling the concept of war
          is very easy in Amerika
                    because war destroys things
                              and in Amerika
                                       everyone wants to buy more and more things

Most Amerikans don't respect anyone who doesn't put up a fight
          so one must deal with Amerikan aggression and ignorance
                    with cunning stratagems
                              and unprecedented resistance

Most Amerikans will never truly understand that    N   F   S
          means    NOT    FOR    SALE
                    because most Amerikans would say that    N    F    S
                              means   N O    F U C K I N G    S H I T ?
