    Bruce Springsteen releases anti-Trump protest song © Getty Images Rock-and-roll legend Bruce Springsteen has released a new anti-Trump protest song called “That’s What Makes Us Great.” Springsteen joined with frequent collaborator Joel Grushecky on the track. Grushecky told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he wrote the song after Trump took office in January. “I had this song, and Bruce and I had been talking. I sent it to him and he liked it. I said, ‘What do you think about singing on it?’ He gave it the Bruce treatment.” Springsteen hits Trump for his reported distaste for reading in one verse,...

    A small business owner in Oregon has a message for CNN, ignorant liberals and Bruce Springsteen: “We’ve had it with you idiots.” Kevin Kerwin is the proprietor of Kevin the Geek Computer Repair store in Lake Oswego.

    Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 11-23-2016 | MOTUS
    I would be remiss if I didn’t report on the Won’s last Presidential Medal of Freedom Awards show. The last, like the first, was all about Obama: "Everybody on this stage has touched me in a very powerful, very personal way.These are folks who have helped make me who I am.” How would you like to put that on your resume?“I helped put the smug in Obama’s smile.” Perhaps most striking about Tuesday’s ceremony is that nine of the 20 awards (45 percent) recognize actors, artists, or musicians — a category that represents only 17 percent of total Medal recipients...

    "The republic is under siege by a moron," Springsteen says in excerpts from upcoming Rolling Stone feature. "It's a tragedy for our democracy" Bruce Springsteen spent the summer playing stadiums with the E Street Band and preparing to release his autobiography, Born To Run, while largely staying clear of this year's presidential campaigns. In an excerpt from an extensive interview that will appear in the next issue of Rolling Stone, Springsteen shares his thoughts on Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, while addressing his own absence from the trail.

    GREENSBORO, N.C. — Remember when tickets for Bruce Springsteen's latest tour went on sale in December, and all tri-state area dates were sold out within minutes? North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory claims that was not the case for The Boss's scheduled Greensboro concert — the April 10 gig he canceled in opposition to HB2 or the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act. McCrory implied on the John Boy and Billy Big radio show Tuesday that Springsteen actually nixed the show not in support of transgender and progressive ideals, but in protection of his own ego — McCrory said only 8,000...

    Back in the 1980s, Bruce Springsteen and other rock stars formed Artists United Against Apartheid and performed a song proclaiming "Sun City" that referenced an entertainment resort in a region of South Africa. The song mocked the Reagan administration's constructive engagement policy to end apartheid. And rock stars also routinely performed in the totalitarian Soviet Union, believing that was incredibly constructive. One wonders: Will these people ever stop complaining? Today, Springsteen and other so-called artists of conscience have a burning desire to affront a new injustice: transgender people who aren't allowed to celebrate their chosen identity in the opposite sex's...

      It's been a long time since I was a Springsteen fan. Back in 1974 (April 29) at my alma mater, the University of Connecticut, there was a spring concert. Three bands were featured: a local band called Fairport Convention, a relatively unknown called Aerosmith and another largely unknown named Bruce Springsteen. It was quite the concert. Then, as happens so often, Springsteen became wealthy and the wealthier he became the more liberal he became. And the more hypocritical he became and the less I liked him. Today I find him intolerable. He's become a complete asshat. Springsteen canceled a...

    He couldn't be drawing attention to a certain Texas senator, could he? When political candidates play Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the U.S.A." at their campaign rallies, you can usually assume they've never listened to the lyrics. But Donald Trump's apparent decision to add the 1984 tune his warm-up music bespeaks a certain political savvy.

    That’s the first thing I tell people who ask me how I can reconcile my ongoing (knock wood) employment at National Review with my Bruce Springsteen partisanship — as many did after the Obama campaign carted out the Boss in Ohio last week to shill for four more years of Hope Things Change. Now, I’m not the first portly conservative from Jersey who has been called on to square his politics with his taste in music. In a lengthy profile on the subject, The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg asked Governor Chris Christie, whose love for the Boss borders on the monomaniacal,...

    Washingtonians and visitors seeking to attend Veterans Day ceremonies or to pay their respects to the fallen at Arlington National Cemetery this year will need to allocate extra time in getting there. That's because the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority has cancelled all Blue line rail service on the federal holiday, and it's the only line that services the Arlington National Cemetery Metro train station. The public transportation authority isn't shutting down for mandated safety repairs, which have plagued the agency since a 2009 fatal accident. Rather, service is being cancelled for "a major concert." The concert, billed as "The...

    Obama dines with Streisand, Springsteen, Kardashian and Hollywood Elite The contrast could not be greater! While President Obama was hobnobbing with Hollywood's liberal elite in southern California, we were in middle America rallying working-class Americans to vote in the midterm elections.  President Obama claims to represent the working class, yet has never had a real job and prefers the company of liberal celebrities like Barabra Streisand, Steven Spielberg, Kim Kardashian, and Bruce Springsteen.   The President's hypocrisy could be smelt all the way in Minneapolis, MN where Diana Nagy was joined on stage by patriotic Americans President Obama was...

    An entire generation has dismissed The Boss' music as lame "dad rock." Here's why they're all wrongEvery few weeks or so, I’ll be talking to someone at a bar or club or house party, and the conversation will inevitably turn toward Bruce Springsteen. The exchange is usually as follows: BAR PATRON/PARTY GUEST: So, what kind of music do you listen to? ME: Oh, a little bit of everything … blues, jazz, funk, Bruce Springsteen (brief pause) … you know, my tastes are super eclectic. BAR PATRON/PARTY GUEST: Um, why do you like Springsteen?

    Bruce Springsteen is the latest famous face to call for justice for Trayvon Martin. At his show in Limerick, Ireland, the 63-year-old dedicated his protest song American Skin (41 Shots), to the 17-year-old who was shot dead in February 2012 by neighbourhood vigilante George Zimmerman. According to the New Jersey Star-Ledger, after seeing the song written on a fan's sign Springsteen decided to play the track, dedicating it to Martin.

    New Jersey Governor Chris Christie may have worked closely with President Obama in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, but it appears he’s more emotionally invested in a different budding bromance. Christie admitted at a Monday briefing that he started “weeping” after he hugged Bruce Springsteen at NBC’s telethon for Hurricane Sandy victims on Nov. 2, the Record reported. Christie is a longtime fan of his fellow New Jerseyan and has attended more than 130 Springsteen concerts over the past 37 years. The governor even sang a version of “Thunder Road” when he made an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy...

The guy's apparently too stoopid to understand why even those of dubious talent -like himself- could always make it BIG in America, all they needed was drive and the chance this country offered us all... but we need from this point forward is OBAMMUNISM, right dude?  Dummy.
