      Remember when the Reagan campaign played Bruce Springsteen’s “Born In the USA” at rallies? It was obvious nobody knew or cared about the lyrics, or how they criticized the United States. They just waited for the chorus and waved the flag furiously while screaming along with Bruce singing BORN IN THE USA! Well, here we go again. Trump’s people played Neil Young’s “Rockin In the Free World,” one of the harshest critiques of corporatism and social injustice ever recorded. Of course, perverting the meaning of things is what they’re all about. Look what they have done with the Bible.

      Hi hc,

      Americans wallow in their delusions.  They like to believe they are exceptional.  Yet all evidence points to mindlessness being the norm – mere puppets whose strings are pulled by the 1%.  A pretty depressing lot of people if viewed without Rose Colored Glasses.

      Their attention span lags way behind. All they need to hear is ‘USA’. And I’m tired of being sad about it.
