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.
A lot of the best music in history was created or made popular by far lefties.
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)
Bruce is a cheap ass imitation.
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...
And I have more respect for them if they are the ones who stay out of politics.
I now give away all their music to who ever wants it for FREE!
That should cut into the royalties a little bit....
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."
From CBS-News, July 29, 2006:
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.'":

Note the "soul bro" handshake. (my caption)
Obama, Chavez shake hands at Americas Summit:
Wierds me out that they had us singing “this land is your land this land is my land” when we were 5 years old in school.
Leave Neil Young out of this. His body of work is tremendous, I can forgive his recent hyper liberalism
...but Pete Seeger is more an iconic symbol of the Communist left than anything else. That is why he performed at Obamas 2009 inaugural.
If Neil Young died tomorrow he would get a tremendous tribute from Freepers. He’s Canadian (living in Northern California) anyhow so cannot vote for 0bama
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.
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.

What a dummy...his type can afford the huge taxations, not us!
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.
He is more liberal and more Obama tool than Brucie
It’s about all they are worth.I don’t care for his singing just saying he makes a living at it.
He kicks Springsteen's puny butt.
Born In Ken—ya....He Was Born in Ken-Ya...Obama born in Ken—ya
BTW, I would take Steven Harper over Obama in a heartbeat.
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.
Bruce is sure to have his accounting staff prepare his taxes WITHOUT the “Bush” tax cuts, right?
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.
Yup LOL Peas in a pod.
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.
Lol. Ol’ Brucey sang Grandma Got Run Over.
Darn! I missed it. /sarc
The only singer that I can think of who is as tone deaf, is Yoko Ono.
Once Again PBS Solicits Donations With Che Guevara:
Thanks! No problemo.
I’m goin down, down, down
I’m goin’ down, down down
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.
As if Bruce needed ANOTHER reason to suck.
Seems like a waste of time and money.
I figure Barry already has the Choomer Vote locked in.
Recent liberalism? He's been hard left for nearly 50 years.
Remember it well. Also "We Must Overcome" when I was in jr high.
How many CD sales of lefty Boss and others occur in communist nations? They would be nobodies in the commie countries of whose ideologies they worship. Notice how not one of them moves to one of their glorious leftist-run kingdoms. Phoneys and frauds to their core. Sean Penn is dope supreme.
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
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

World Can't Wait--
Drive Out the Bush Regime is a Maoist-revolutionary movement organized by the Revolutionary Communist Party. Scroll down the list that appears (after clicking link) to find the World Can't Wait organization (rwor.org is the website of the Revolutionary Communist Party):
From David Horowitz's FrontpageMag.com /DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
Profile: World Can't Wait (WCW)
*Revolutionary communist movement that stages protests against the Bush administration [they've moved onto other things since Bush--ETL]
*Organizes college and high-school students
*Founded in June 2005 by Charles Clark Kissinger, a longtime leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party
Right. He railed against Reagan and both Bushes.
“We Must Overcome” = “We Shall Overcome”
I was referring more to his actions during the "anti-war" (pro-communist) movement of the 60s and 70s. The Vietnam era.
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.
