Quote of the Day:

Freedom of Speech, that’s some motherfucking bullshit
You say the wrong thing, they’ll lock your ass up quick

The Constitution says we all got a right to speak
Say what we want, Tip, your argument is weak
Censor records, TV, school books too
And who decides what’s right to hear? You?

(You have the right to remain silent)
Fuck that right, I want the right to talk
I want the right to speak, I want the right to walk…

Ice T, The Iceberg: Freedom of Speech…Just Watch What You Say.
