Who is this supposed to resonate with 50 year old white guys? Um, I’d think those guys are a little more worried about other stuff right now.

I use to like the old Steppenwolf even though their lyrics were mean-spirited anti-American in spite of lead man John Kay being an escapee from Communist East Germany... ...Springsteen, like Kay, became rich and famous because the America they hated provided them the freedom and opportunities to make the livings of their choice. I can handle ant-American dissent, but I hate ungrateful hypocrites!!!

I used to think Born In The USA was a patriotic song until I took the time to listen to the lyrics.

I hope Ozzie Osbourne does another free tour like he did for Bush in 2004. Maybe AC/DC can join with him (except they don’t like to get political and lose 50% of their sales to one side of the political spectrum)

If support from a no-talent hack is a valid ‘endorsement’; a resonable person must ask the question, “Who would possibly vote for a POTUS candidate because BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN (Exalted Statesman, Towering Intellect) supported that person?

If there are any imbeciles who would let Springsteen decide the most important election in world history for them, then those votes should be invalidated; and those voters should be deported immediately...

Why isn’t Hugo Chavez jumping in to help us with low price fuel oil anymore?

From US News & World Report, October 1, 2012:

Hugo Chavez Says He Would Vote for Obama

"President Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan dictator who once called President George W. Bush "the devil," has endorsed Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential race, according to the Associated Press.

"If I were American, I'd vote for Obama," Chavez said in a televised interview Sunday. "And I believe that if Obama was from Caracas, he would vote for Chavez, I am positive."

Chavez Vows To 'Stand By Iran'
After Oil Talks In Tehran, Venezuelan Leader Called 'Brother' By Ahmedinejad

"Chavez pledged that his country would 'stay by Iran at any time and under any condition,' state television reported. Ahmadinejad said he saw in Chavez a kindred spirit." "'We do not have any limitation in cooperation,' Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying. 'Iran and Venezuela are next to each other and supporters of each other. Chavez is a source of a progressive and revolutionary current in South America and his stance in restricting imperialism is tangible.'":

Recent?

In “Sweet Home Alabama” LS wasn't exactly praising Neal for his conservatism.

He is an ignorant liberal Canuck but does have some really good music..”Down By The River” is still one of my guitar favorites even though like “Hey Joe” it tries to excuse murder.

How is it that all the rockers from the 1960’s and 70’s are still so friggin’ stupid when it comes to politics. Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young are still acting as though it is 1969 and haven’t changed their idiotic beliefs one wit.

January, 1971: Jane Fonda raises funds for the Winter Soldier Investigation through a series of benefit concerts. Participants include Fonda, Dick Gregory, Donald Sutherland, Graham Nash, David Crosby and Phil Ochs. Fonda is named Honorary National Coordinator of the event.

February 16, 1971: Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland form "FTA" (F*** The Army), an anti-war, anti-American road show that tours near Army bases in order to undermine troop morale. Skits and songs portray American defeats, soldiers refusing to fight, and the murder of officers by their troops. FTA cast members mingle with soldiers after the shows, encouraging them to desert or to sabotage the Army.

re: “Leave Neil Young out of this. His body of work is tremendous, I can forgive his recent hyper liberalism”

Look, I love his musical work as well - I have been a big fan of his music, but politically he’s always been an absolute idiot and has never changed. He has always been hyper-liberal.

It saddens me that very few of these guys ever admit their mistakes of youth.

“Born in the USA” sounds like a ditty my son made up while he was alone in the tub with his army men.

“Born in the USA” is clearly an anti-American song. Yet you regularly hear it played at patriotic events, and by people you'd think would or should know better. I've seen it played at events sponsored by (pro-American) Vietnam veteran groups. 4th of July, etc.

Lord Above, don’t ANY of these guys mature as they get older or is it all the pot-smoking that stunts their brains??

My husband and I have talked about this for literally decades. We graduated in mid-60’s from HS. And what we have witnessed is the faux peace-loving, hippies from the 60’d took over the schools, the government at the fed, state and community level and are entrenched. But I see finally, some huge amount of us (call us T.E.A Party or whatever you want) have frankly had just enough. No more “that's racist”, and all the other guilt trips they try to lay on us. NO MORE. They have used up their chips years ago, but now that Ozippy was elected, lied through his teeth, did opposite of what he campaigned on - typical Dem - it's OVER zippy - NO ONE is BUYING what you be sellin’. Hey lefties are ya Getting all this? Vote R/R and GOP senate and house to get this country back on the road to excellence.

He was sued and settled out of court for not paying his roadies overtime and they get no benefits.

He also has an estate in NJ and avoids property taxes by getting a farm assessment.

Springsteen, was, and is, nothing in the world but a barroom beller who had one hit in his life. And he had that one hit because music drowned out his hollering on the Born in the USA album. He is the most no-talent entertainer of the last 100 years.

Neil is still out there touring and doing high powered 12 minute versions of Cowgirl etc that are just as good as he did them 30 years ago. You can find them on youtube with 5-10 thousand hits apiece. I doubt the younger white generation likes Neil Young much, they are into Jay Zee and other rap idiots. White kids made these rappers rich same as white people put Bammy Boy into the White House

No Yoko MAKES people tone deaf—or just plain deaf.

My fav of the Beatles breaker upper is “Don't Worry Kyoto, Mamma Is Only Searching For Her Hand In The Snow.” a real Plastic Ono classic.

It goes like “ahem” (clear your throat) then bugger a cat.

It is either for having a few beehives or a few sheep grazing...how Brucie skates on some of his NJ taxes. So he can hole up on his 200 acre estate with the house being taxed at normal rates but the surrounding acreage being taxed at the much lower agricultural rate. Jon Bon Jovi does the same tax dance with beehives on his property

Springsteen. Yeah, an elite multi-millionaire lefty who likes to pretend he’s the voice of the ‘working man.’ Reminds me of one of those Viagra commercials with gray-haired dudes riding motorcycles and preening like tough guys. He’s just another faggy, liberal wuss from the northeast, who only appeals to other faggy, liberal wusses.
