Troy2000, comments? Fellow Liberal brethren wanting to get rid of OUR National Anthem...
Frankly, that guy is entitled to his opinion, however comma... we are entitled to ours and he needs to be removed from political office for supporting any idea to strip our country of her identity and pride.
Why is it that it is so easy for the Liberals to want to get rid of our identity or to sing about victory from oppression? Are they taking that personally as they state? Is that as inappropriate as the Canadian Anthem played before a hockey game?
Surely ye jest...
This guy is a complete leftist Liberal moron...
Newsflash for the left: IT IS OKAY TO BE PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN.

I think we should send Chester "Bonehead" or is it Butterfield, to Iran if they would have him.
Some people easily forget the sacrifice of others when time passes. I've always felt that the saying of the National Athem at public events or gatherings is paying respect to those who have served, those who have lost and those who continue to protect our indenpendce from foriegn powers or ideology.

Liberals love to bemoan the decline in personal values and in ethical behavior of American youth. Has it ever occured to them that children learn what they are taught? You want patriotic kids, you have to teach them patriotic values. The Pledge of Allegiance and the Star-Spangled Banner (all four verses), and God Bless America and This Land Is Your Land is all part of that.
If some liberal jackass has a problem with the National Anthem being played before a sporting event, tell him not to watch sports. I'll be honest here and admit I have a problem with it being played before sporting events, too. Not with the idea; I think that's great. What I object to are "artists" who "interpret" the Anthem. Some things are meant to be played straight, and national anthems head the list. I was seriously annoyed by Hendrix's and Feliciano's versions; and the time Whitney Houston did it at the Super Bowl, I ****ed near kicked the TV in. I also hate vocalists performing it unaccompanied. I vastly perfer it as an instrumental performance; at least any band above the elementary school level won't split the high notes, and will stay on key.
But that's just me. If a sports performance has an international flavour, such as the Boston Bruins vs the Montreal Canadiens, simply play BOTH anthems. It's a mark of mutual respect. I think almost no one except a real reactionary would have a problem with that. But with the politically correct who don't comprehend national pride and patriotism yabbering all over the airwaves, and kids these days not being exposed to both sides of things or taught about the sacrifices made by our forebears so the politically correct are able to yabber and spread their character-sapping poison, don't hold your breath waiting for respect for American by American citizens to make a resurgence.
The question shouldn't even be asked let alone considered. That's like saying we should no longer have a flag. If anyone feels we should get rid of the National Anthem, they can always leave the country.
