Skip to comments.Springsteen: Silence Is Unpatriotic
Posted on 10/08/2007 7:24:26 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement
(CBS) It's hard to picture, but Bruce Springsteen turned 58 last month. His breakout hit, "Born to Run," is 32 years old. While rock stars his age are content to tour with their greatest hits, Springsteen launched, last week, what may become his most controversial work as a songwriter.
Even now, Springsteen is an artist in progress, having moved from stories about girls and cars to populist ballads that echo the dust bowl days of Woody Guthrie. Springsteen has put all that together now in his first tour with the E Street Band in four years. As correspondent Scott Pelley reports, he has returned to full-throated rock and roll, and a message that's sharper than ever, damning the war in Iraq, and questioning whether America has lost its way at home.

Bruce can pound sand...
I’ve no problem hating him now.
Couldn’t stand him before. Cats in heat carry a better tune.
I couldn’t give a flying ***k what BS thinks.
Even before he shilled for sKerry, he was a fake “working man” balladeer. Another phony liberal cloistered in his fortress mansion doling out platitudes and looking down on us little people.
You are a disappontment, Brucie, and your albums are no more than inferior flying discs anymore.
Born to run, born to surrender - a disgrace to New Jersey.
Yeah, it just sucks that Iraq has gone from the bottom of ranking of political freedom in the M.E. to 4th place in political freedom.
You can thank GWB you frikin' a-hole! I guess Iraqis don't deserve non-state sponsored frikin' TV and the Internet, cell phoes, and the FREE Frikin' PRESS! Like you HAVE!!!!!!!!!!!! Jackass!
Here's hoping a young, buff, fit, Marine kicks your little dictator totalitarian loving butt!
Shut up and sing, Bruce.
Its called hubris sir, and unfortunately your hubris is not coupled with any wit, intelligence or judgment.
No, just shut up, Bruce.
Why isn’t this guy’s patriotic dissent being crushed? Things just aren’t the same since the Magnificent Bastard left the scene.
Bruce has always been a Pinko.
He believes that Woody Guthrie / John Steinbeck nonsense about evil capitalists and angelic working man.
Springsteen is another millionaire who wants to destroy the middle class and have two classes: the workers and the ... enlightened leaders. Of course, enlightened leaders are all millionaires who won’t have to stand in line while their children die waiting for treatment.
Edward’s two Americas are the lower and middle classes. He too wants to abolish the middle class.
What a bunch of awful human beings and stupid to boot. Their taxes to pay for this will cripple the country.
China will invade Taiwan as soon as Hillary takes “command.” She and the Dims are too weak to do anything. Plus, Hillary has been bribed by the Communists.
I tend to agree. I'm not sure if he can do any worse than the execrable "Streets of Philadelphia." On the other hand, "Pink Cadillac" and "I'm On Fire" are pretty good songs, even better when covered by someone other than Bruce.
See my post #14. Bruce generally sucks, but even he gets something right once in while.
Better: Shut up, Bruce.
The guy wrote a song that empathizes with suicide bombers.
Sad. I enjoyed his music growing up. Quite the poet.
Now, a rich moron who screwed around on his wife with the girl that plays the tamborine.
57 channels and nothing on - indeed.
