Bruce Springsteen’s Daughter Wows at Horse Competition [Gucci Paris Masters 2012 in Paris] Drudge?
Yahoo News ^ | 12-2-12 | By Jennifer Kucsak

Posted on 12/03/2012 9:24:37 PM PST by Diago

We had no idea that Bruce Springsteen's 20-year-old daughter, Jessica, was an accomplished equestrian … until now! The brunette beauty competed in the Gucci Paris Masters 2012 in Paris over the weekend ... Jessica, who competed in the Style and Competition for Amade, came in 6th place...

Springsteen, our blue collar, middle class, Obama loving hero. What a joke! Remeber all the heat Romney's wife took for owning a horse. Meanwhile, democratic zombie voters try to "go green," while their hereos fly their horses all over the world in private jets. What a bunch of suckers. We get what we deserve.

Do you think Springsteen will write a song about this?

Flew my daughter and her horse to Paris for the Gucci Paris Masters.

Meanwhile people are homeless in Long Island and the Jersey Shore is destroyed.

Hope Obama taxes people to fix it.

Born in the USA.

I'm a blue collar guy at a horse jumping contest in France.

*Someone make sure Drudge gets this on the Front Page!

“Remember all the heat Romney’s wife took for owning a horse.”

WHY? Jackie Kennedy practically grew up on a horse, and the public adored her! My guess is that the Communists had not yet trained Americans to be greedy and envious....

He’s the worst form of hypocrites. A phony too, all those “cool guy” looks he gives the camera in his videos. Off-key voice too.

How does one spell “overrated”?

But it’s okay for Michael Bloomberg’s daughter Georgina to be a top-level equestrian competitor, too. They’re liberal, so no problem.

Don't worry, liberal hypocrites like him always get some kind of exemption written into the law that’ll get him out of most of the pain.

Like always - and I mean always - it's Joe and Jane Average that will ultimately get stuck with the bill.

I’m a horsewoman myself, as you can probably guess from my username. I don’t begrudge either of the young ladies their success—they’re actually very good and work extremely hard. It’s not easier for them because they’re rich, since show jumping is a sport in which all of the competitors are either rich, or are sponsored by very rich people or nations or corporations. It hurts just as badly to hit the ground when you’re rich as when you’re poor. Rich, poor, or in between, you sweat just as much when you’re riding, and you get just as exhausted, and have to control your mind, body, and emotions just as much.

My point, however, is that the press carries fawning articles about Misses Bloomberg and Springsteen, while they condemn Mrs. Romney for pursuing a sport she got into as a form of therapy, and for contributing millions of dollars to the US effort to win a medal in dressage.

Yeah, but Mrs Romney is a republican Mormon...Gasp...

The dems throw anything, and if it doesn't stick, they shrug it off, and throw something else. If it sticks, they expand on it.

Then there were even some conservatives that got on that bandwagon and poo pooed Mrs Romney for exhibiting richness. lol

You need to cut Bruce Springsteen a break. He's a farmer, and it's only proper that he has horses on his farm to pull his plow.

As another horsewoman, I agree except for one point; Springsteen's money got her to the big leagues. I personally know of a young lady who was competing against the young Ms. Springsteen in Wellington. She's a good rider, probably better than Springsteen with the difference being the horse. Her daddy couldn't go out and buy her a $50,000 jumper while Springsteen could afford the best and an equally good back up jumper. Springsteen could also afford the best trainer with the best connections, as well. Money does make a difference.

It is worse than that. Ann Romney has MS. She used her horse as therapy. Ann Romney, through liberal eyes, suffers the same disease as Sarah Palin - she's not a weak-minded, sexually immature, pro-death feminist. She's well-grounded, Christ-like and a strong woman who has succeeded as a mother, just like Sarah Palin.

Therefore, she must be vilified because she's a freak. Right now in article after article the left works to destroy Ann Romney, just like it does to Sarah Palin. Any attempt to live outside the Left’s declared standards of womanhood must be destroyed.

The Left is a living entity that thrives on envy. It's why losers hate merit and love government - they're jealous of anyone who is their better. Money doesn't change the core person and every liberal knows they serve the wrong master. It's easier to destroy than to create, to acquiesce than to improve, to envy rather than emulate. They're haters of the first degree, mentally ill and masters at projection.

Their Master is evil and they follow his footsteps with glee.

Springsteen has some kind of farm in Jersey and I think he raises honey bees (or it might be Bon Jovi - I forget). Anyways he gets a tax break for that farm and whatever it is he grows or raises.

*** Meanwhile, democratic zombie voters try to "go green," while their hereos fly their horses all over the world in private jets. What a bunch of suckers. We get what we deserve. Do you think Springsteen will write a song about this? ***

I don't know if 'the boss' (ha) will but I can give some insight on what it'll consist of if he does, or if anyone else wants to for him (hint-hint, wink-wink):

  1. It will be in the Key of E.
  2. it will consist of Three Chords.
  3. It will follow the I, IV, V, chord progression: E, A and B -- or B7.
  4. it will be in 4/4 time and have 120 BPM (beats per minute).
In 'my youth' I liked The Boss when he made it with Born To Run (cool song) but he couldn't keep his yap closed (Shut up and sing Bruce). Then thanks to Al Gore's Internet I was able to dig deeper and find out about him, and he's a major league asshat. Google 'Bruce Springsteen Concert Contract' and you'll see he's another rich spoiled plick who thinks he's god.

Musically he pretty much stinks playing that guitar of his(1). Back in the 'olden days' folks mocked Elvis' playing - Ha! Elvis was Clapton compared to 'the Boss'. Bruce's Horn Player (Sax), Clarence Clemons made that band. This IMHO is Bruce's best song Bruce Springsteen performing Born To Run, and that was 1975(2).

(1) The only good thing about Springsteen now is his 'signature' guitar. It's a Fender Esquire, the predecessor to the iconic Fender Telecaster. It's way too good of an Axe for this jerk to own, but that's life.
(2) If you search the Internet for the guitar tabs for Born To Run you'll find them in Keys other than E -- they are wrong. The folks who write those Tabs change the Keys as they like (for their voice or own playing ability), say the Key of 'G' for Born To Run (G, C, D chord progression). That's why if you play those Tabs along to the original they sound like crap -- you're playing in the wrong Key.
(a big headache back when all we had were 'Song Books' or 'Teenage Fake Books' to follow as everything was rearranged. The Net changed all that, thank you Al Gore ./s)

Back in 1980 I read an interview he did where he bragged that he showed at the draft office dressed in drag, ‘femming it’ to the max to escape duty in ‘Nam.

Every time he sings some pseudo ‘Nam protest/veteran support song, my blood pressure rises.

He’s *never* had one ‘blue collar job’ in his whole life.

He got out of high school, bummed off friends and slept on their floors until he was ‘discovered’.

He knows as much about ‘real life’ as I know about astrophysics.

I was a huge fan in the 70’s and his was the first concert I ever went to.

I’m so ashamed.

“It hurts just as badly to hit the ground when you’re rich as when you’re poor.”

Yup. I am not rich but I have been over the jumps with the horse, over the jumps seperated from the horse as I went over the jump, over the jump without the horse, and through the jump without the horse (ouch). I have also been thrown over a horse by a professional athlete who had never given anyone a leg up before. Hit the concrete and started to laugh after I checked all my organs to make sure they were still in the right spots.

I miss it. I love horses. And they love me right back. Sigh...

I could never figure out why the music from the fake books was so bad and that is it. I suspect that not using Drop D tuning had a bit to do with it to.

One of the singers who has driven me crazy is Kim Hill who more than likely will be singing in D#. Yikes.

I played in bands where the guitar players were electronically astute enough to use a Voltage Attenuator on their turn tables so that the record tuned to their guitar.

Don’t get me started on Bono.

The irony of it all is that they get huge tax breaks for all those “free concerts” they put on.

It’s considered a “donation” and is deductible.

Why pull money out of your own bank account when you can just show up and sing a couple of songs and get ‘paid’ for a ‘concert’?

That’s why I love Alice.
He supports Republican candidates but never mixes it with his music.

Please forgive me for LMAO.
The mental image was just too much.

;D

The horse I grew up on was 16H and I rode bareback so I had to lead him to something I could climb up on and jump from, onto his back.

About 25% of the time, that wiseguy would deftly step sideways as I was mid-leap, landing me flat on the ground.

He’d turn to look at me, bob his head, snort and swish his tail.

He was such a joker.

Best horse I ever had.
