#5 Clem and B won't like it, but neither will the woke and anti-American crowd either. Totally un-PC. If that had been the national anthem, the whole floor to the BLM/hate-American crowd would have never held long ago.

Gloom Despair Agony on me."

#8 There was a tune in John Ringo's Posleen wars novel. Don't remember the whole thing, but the line:
"How many of them can we make die" sticks in my mind.

#13 If it's good enough to be included on the Voyager golden records, you've got to consider this one. We'd have the most kick-ass national anthem of all time.

2007? She is about due to realize she chose the wrong answer to her existential question, poor thing.

#21 The Star-Spangled Banner is one of the most beautiful national anthems. Unfortunately only Whitney Houston can sing it.
