When All You Have Is a Liberal Arts Degree, Everything Looks Like a Trigger

An Ithaca College professor said that “God Bless America” is a “warmongering song” that should not be played at sporting events.

Absolutely. Let’s just stick to “Star Spangled Banner” and Drowning Pool’s “Bodies“.

  1. Hope he never listens to the whole National Anthem, I would hate to have his death by apoplexy on my conscience.

    Sorry to have to split this up but the site won’t let me do it a a single post.


  2. Oh, say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
    What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
    Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
    O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
    And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
    Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
    O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?


    • On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
      Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
      What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
      As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
      Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
      In full glory reflected now shines on the stream:
      ‘Tis the star-spangled banner! O long may it wave
      O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.


  3. And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
    That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
    A home and a country should leave us no more?
    Their blood has wiped out their foul footstep’s pollution.
    No refuge could save the hireling and slave
    From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.


    • and the one we should sing before every event.

      Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
      Between their loved homes and the war’s desolation!
      Blest with victory and peace, may the heaven-rescued land
      Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
      Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
      And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
      And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
      O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
