    said it back in the '60s:

    I Kill Therefore I Am

    Meet the king of cowboys, he rides a pale pony
    He fights the bad boys brings them to their knees
    He patrols the highways from the air
    He keeps the country safe from long hair
    I am the masculine american man
    I kill therefore i am.

    I don't like the black man, for he doesn't know his place
    Take the back of my hand or i'll spray you with my mace
    I'm as brave as any man can be
    I find my courage through chemistry
    I am the masculine american man

    I kill therefore i am.

    I don't like the students now, they don't have no respect
    They don't like to work now, i think i'll wring their necks
    They call me pig, although i'm underpaid
    I'll show those faggots that i'm not afraid
    I am the masculine american man
    I kill therefore i am.

    Farewell to the gangsters we don't need them anymore
    We've got the police force, they're the ones who break the law
    He's got a gun and he's a hater
    He shoots first, he shoots later
    I am the masculine american man
    I kill therefore i am.

    You can't keep a mighty tree alive (much less expect it to thrive) by only spritzing the fine leaves at its tippy-top. The fate of the whole tree depends on nurturing the grassroots. - Jim Hightower
