'Born In The U.S.A.' is actually about the mistreatment of Vietnam veterans, and 'Pink Houses' is not exactly a patriotic song despite the chorus. 'Born In The U.S.A.' is actually about the mistreatment of Vietnam veterans. How do we ensure a fair Nov election? Walgreens forcing employees tested positive to come back work after 10 days , even if they still showing symptoms !!!!! Shame on Walgreens ... making more employees and their patients sick 😡😡😡😡
This song from Sharon Jones & The Sap Kings should be on the list for July 4th songs. This should be 1. Oh and Born in the USA is not a patriotic song. 🙄 It will only put a damper on your fourth of July if you let it. There are infinite ways to celebrate this beautiful day. Open your minds people. nope. bbq and pool party! stay home if you’re scared.

It's Life or Death Stay the Hell home ... There is nothing to celebrate until we vote a Real President in November..... Glad I'm not with anyone over this ordeal ever lol.
Because corporate capitalists insist on allowing spread, to make more money, this airborne mutant virus will never go away, and because it mutation, a vaccine will never stop it. Lock down is the only path to ending it. Rich people are gambling addicts, so get to work/play! Meh NYC’s own City Hall Autonomous Zone blamethem

Luckily, we will be in a place that doesn't elect communists. Fireworks for me, but not for Thee. Happy July 4th to ALL Americans... & while you're celebrating your independence, Give the rest of the world a chance to breath: We DON'T NEED YOU LORDING OVER US!!! You ppl are so wrong . ABC News- who do you serve -
Don't forget opera and classical music, the neglected stepchildren of American culture. Their seasons have all been canceled, so they're streaming older performances, but losing millions of hard earned donations and careers are being interrupted if not ended.
