Posted on 01/10/2013 6:18:43 AM PST by SoFloFreeper
R'n'B-pop diva Beyonce Knowles, "American Idol" winner Kelly Clarkson and Grammy Award-winning artist James Taylor are just some of the artists tapped by re-elected U.S. president Barack Obama to perform the country's most patriotic songs during his upcoming inauguration ceremony on January 21. Beyonce is chosen to deliver the U.S. national anthem "The Star Spangled Banner", Kelly is selected to sing "My Country 'Tis of Thee" and James is invited again to perform "America the Beautiful".

Beyonce will be about white by then. She is going heavy in the lighting process of her skin. Of course, she may have to wear some dark makeup to please the brothers. She is a leftist through and through. Kelly, should stay away-Be sick. Imo.
Are there ethical Americans?
Are moral Americans?
If so, how many?
The evidence that I presented is human nature.
I believe that I am ethical and moral, but I no longer wish to ally with republicans, because not only are they not ethical and moral, they are weak. I will not ally with Obama, because he is the Devil.
I have had to ally with myself because I am pretty much alone as far as I can see.
This is about guaranteeing a larger physical audience. Recent news reports about low interest and potentially embarrassing small crowds lead to this sort of action.
People with nothing else to do who otherwise enjoy the music will show up. Beyonce and Clarkson will pull the desired diverse audience. Pics will be taken. Numbers will be exaggerated. Nothing will be questioned.
It’s all about optics.
—>>Clarkson endorsed Obama before the election, because of his support of homosexual marriage.
Did not know this.
Both sides are wrong.
One side is evil and the other side stands for nothing, effect nothing and is of no consequence whatsoever.
Well, the left will throw a line on one issue or another and snag as many as they can.
The right...throws no lines at all.
It’s easy to see which side is going to prevail based upon tactical analysis.
I might reply with something like, "shove it, commie." If I was a public figure, I'd say something less provocative, but with wording that would get the same point across.
Clarkson wants to have a successful career in Hollywood and it's a liability to be a conservative, social Republican.
She sold out her principles in order to make it in Hollyweird.
It doesn’t surprise me that she endorsed him. She is just pandering to her fan base. The majority of pop music fans are young, and the majority of America’s youth like Obama. Being for Ron Paul and then Obama shows her pandering to young voters, as they are polar opposites.
It’s quite easy to be tough behind an anonymous name on the internet.
Maybe Kelly C. could have a fall and have a concussion. It seems to be going around as of late. And it’s perfectly acceptable to the press and the American public.
Another 0bama Pop Fest: 0bamapalooza.
Thanks for the smile this morning.
Have a good day.
Kelly has been an Obama support for the last 5 years.
In the entertainment business, “To Get Along, You Go Along.”
Lining Up For The Inauguration
I am afraid I disagree. Military people report to the president. They are subject to military rule and volunteered to do so.
The rest of us are citizens.
We have choice. We are not subjects of a king and we have will and choice. No one owns us.
We do not take orders from a king. We agree to obey laws and help make them. It is not rude to decline any invitation as a citizen. No one is compelled to perform in this country. So far there is no king...
In this country, it’s a liability to be any kind of republican.
Whatever reasons factor in to her individual decision, she allied with the strong majority and not the weak minority.
The people she intends to sell music to are not conservative. Maybe a few of them are, but they are of no consequence. If she were to ally with say, Mitt Romney, she would be boycotted.
The left is dominant, the right is submissive.
It will remain that way until we change it.
If I was an entertainer, public figure who makes money from popularity, would I rather be seen as a friend of Obama or a friend of Lindsay Graham?
How about John McCain?
Here’s a tough one. Does the entertainer want to be seen with Obama or Sarah Palin?
Those who require strength in numbers.
I am not such a person.
