: Has anyone ever heard of this phrase: Don't let them take your eye for a prune. If so, please tell me what it means. Thanks.

Bush, Ashcroft et al have taken your eyes and given you a prune under the guise of a "War on Terror."

Today, people of the United States have given up their rights through the "Patriot Act," the "Homeland Security Act" and the Pentagon's new system of "Total Information Awareness." The astonishing thing about this "land of the free" is that most Americans now have no effective rights and do not care.
They took our eyes and have given us prunes as the darkness and terror of totalitarianism starts to envelop us.

Rant over.
