Forlorn in the USA

nullBruce Springsteen, Neil Young and Pearl Jam are making yet another anti-war CD to go with yet another anti-war movie that nobody will see.

When will this end? Well, let’s think about it this way — there are still people protesting the Vietnam war. And it would appear that the United States is winning in Iraq, which makes it even more of a travesty for those with more money and free time than brains.

A concert will no doubt follow, with band intros by Cindy Sheehan. The “artists” will leave their mansions, arrive in private jets, stay in five-star hotel suites, ride in limousines and take a stage unimpeded to say whatever they please without fear of government retribution, all in an effort to demonstrate the horrific den of global oppression that is America.

There will also no doubt be another vacuous singer like Rickie Lee Jones, who told the New York Post in 2004 that America (Bush) has created “the closest we’ve come to Nazi Germany.” If she can prove that Nazi Germany also had an ignoramus singer with a head devoid of historical scope, on a stage loaded with amplifiers and relativism, then I’ll agree with her and all the rest of these boneheads.
