"I pledge allegiance to this flag / And if that bothers you, well, that's too bad."

My god!! It's like Robert Hunter, Bob Dylan, and John Lennon had a baby!!!

A retarded baby, because there are three of them and they're all dudes

I'll bet even Greenwood could beat him. Maybe even Ted Nugent and that pretty bad.

Oh my God...you've happened upon the greatest idea since The Half Hour Comedy Hour...

Derpapalooza will not be complete without Barbra Streisand and Rosie O'donnell. Both mad as hatters and willing to derp at the drop of a hat. O'donnell will drop the hat herself if she has to.

steamingpile: gameshowhost: LL316: Anyone that goes to a Political Party National Convention for any reason other than for work purposes is a complete and utter douche.

So vote Republican.

Just like the dems only have the kids at their events because they all are for making a change!!!!

This is getting really tiring Fark, you can keep the mocking to silence an opinion in the political tab and off the main page. For people so open minded they sure aren't open to others ideas.

Bleyo: zabadu: (d) The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free.

I always interpreted that as you can't use an actual flag as clothing, but clothing with portrayals of the flag were OK.


You mean like slicing a hole in the middle and wearing the flag like a poncho? As kid rock did during the super bowl half time?

There was a time when a stunt like that would get a guy arrested. (or just serve as an excuse for the pigs)

But apparently the right wing fanatics of america who freak at the slightest flash of nipple don't mind a little flag desecration.

But what do you expect from the folks who want to make a traitor our next president?

Citrate1007: "Patriotic" clothing is an offensive display of the flag. The fact that republican knuckle draggers don't understand the disrespect shows just how "patriotic" they really are.


Yeah, because democrat performers always respect it...

Well, to be fair, John Philip Sousa is probably a more apt comparison to Wagner than Lee Greenwood.

You can throw in Charlie Daniels and Toby Keith as well. Hell, you can probably fit in the whole contemporary C&W scene (except of course for the Dixie Chicks).

There is a slight difference between Lee Greenwood and people like Nugent, Hank Jr, and Charlie Daniels. When Lee Greenwood walks off stage he immediately reaches for a fifth of whiskey to kill the demons of whoredom. He knows his boiler-plate is that goddamn song, which I assure you he actually hates singing. That song, however, probably nets him about $5 million a year in performance fees and royalties.

Toby Keith is a registered Democrat.

...and an asshat. and a sh*tty musician.

Pandora's Litterbox: Toby Keith is a registered Democrat.


A "Dixiecrat" at best. He spent all of Dubya's term publicly fellating the guy.

Other C&W(ish) Democrats (and much better musicians than Toby Keith [imo]):

Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Willie Nelson, Steve Earle, Kris Kristofferson, John Prine, Ralph Stanley, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash (RIP) and Emmylou Harris

clevershark: Pandora's Litterbox: Toby Keith is a registered Democrat.

A "Dixiecrat" at best. He spent all of Dubya's term publicly fellating the guy.


Although Keith has supported President George W. Bush, he says he is not a conservative.

"It's amazing how many Republicans call me for support. And then they go, 'You're a Republican right?' And you go, 'Well I'm actually a lifetime Democrat,'" he said. "And then they go, 'Oh, sorry.' And the Democrats want so bad - the real liberals really want to hate me. And then they go, 'I still hate you, but I can't believe you're a Democrat.' So I'm not a real political guy. I'm a very patriotic guy."

Keith says he trusts one person's instincts: his own. He runs his own record label now. And despite all the "drinkin' and cheatin'" songs, he's been married for 22 years, and has three kids. His latest album is called "White Trash with Money," inspired by an experience of his daughter's.

But yeah, he was a Rick Perry backer this go 'round (after donating and praising Obama in '08) so you're probably right

Confabulat: Mr. Coffee Nerves: What if I hate Lee Greenwood because all his music farking sucks, not just because he wrote a song with pandering, treacly lyrics that sound like something a hydroencephalatic Cub Scout wrote for a 4th of July Jamboree? Do I have to root for the North Koreans when I go see "Red Dawn" at the dollar theater two weeks after it opens?

Son you better stand up when you hear Lee Greenwood or you may as well be a damn North Korean yourself, commie.


You lost me at "Son".

I get a kick out of this guy being a one trick pony. Every decisive International conflict that leads to war, or
a slide in "Exceptionalism" uses this fluff song since 1984. The used it for gulf war 1 and also 9/11 now
this years election. It is not jingoist as Toby Keith song , it just comes off as bad as they have to use this song over and over and over. And for an "Country American Love Song" I prefer this one.

Your post got me thinking. People spaz out over a piece of cloth with our national logo on it, but don't seem to care much about their fellow man. These people have some seriously farked up priorities. You're supposed to venerate the flag because "soldiers died for it". Well, let's think about that for a minute...

1) To the uninitiated, the flag and the United States Of America might seem the same, but surprisingly they're not. One is a large mass of land with around 311 million people living on it, and the other is a hunk of silkscreened cloth, probably manufactured by slave labor in China. If you die to save the people back home from an evil invading horde, that's a hero and I appreciate it. If you die for a flag, that's an idiot. But hey - you're free to be one.

2) You buy a flag, it's your property. You paid for it. You should be able to fly it, salute it, worship it, wear it, burn it, wipe your ass on it, dry your car with it, or make sweet love to it down by the fire... We don't tell people what they can and can't do with any other inanimate thing they buy. It's ironic that the very symbol of a supposedly free country is the one thing that's restricted as to what you can do with it.

3) The flag won't care what you do to it.

4) They'll make more.

America would be a better place if people took the energy spent on worshipping an inanimate piece of cloth, and channeled it into being better to their neighbor... helping the poor... or electing public officials based on their intentions and intellect rather than jingoism or loyalty to a party. But... eh. People mostly can't think for themselves, and will do what they will.

I didn't make the rules, I just posted them.

And I believe the rules were made back when you were supposed to march down the street waving flags shouting AMERICA, AMERICA!! and they put "In God We Trust" on the dollar. Oh, and "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance.
 
2012-08-29 11:55:18 AM  
Chances are if you have a US flag it was probably made in China by some guy getting paid $0.02 an hour.

TheJoe03: I doubt most of those artists consider themselves Democrats, maybe liberal but that's not always the same thing.


That's true; it's not always the same. But it is a majority of the time. All of the artists I included have either strongly spoken out against what are considered Republican policies (usually involving war or gay rights), or have actually supported Democrat candidates. I would gamble that none of them would vote Rupublican any time soon. But you're right; I don't know actual party affiliation.

LeafyGreens: I'm not really up on my civics, but I'm fairly certain you have to be an American citizen to register to vote.


You can't exclude Jersey that easily!
/kidding, kidding - It was just part of my point that not only Rupublican knuckle-draggers wear the flag.

Instead of Greenwood's nausea-inducing dreck, I submit a tune Frank Sinatra did for a short film in 1945 called "The House I Live In" promoting religious tolerance, particularly of Jewish people.
