Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

For all the "Frozen" fans out there.... 'Enter Snowman' 🤟

Not because it's particularly good, but good enough for a chuckle

When I think of anti-war songs I usually think of Bob Dylan. Well, this might be the most effective one I've ever heard.

Do you remember Reagan's faux pas about Born in the USA? He was a one of the "so many" that misunderstood the story that song tells.

What I find hilarious is the the draft dodgers during the Vietnam era turned out to be the biggest Chicken Hawks when they grew older (As in, they support military action here and there but could never bother to serve).  Just look at our current POTUS.  Yet every Vietnam veteran I've actually run into is the coolest and most down to Earth person I've ever met.  They know what war is, and wouldn't wish it on anybody.

Since I posted that DJ Bobo song in the political thread YT has been gracing me with such awesome recommendations.

So, what's possibly better than any given single Eurodance trash artist?

Indeed! Many of them together!

So did you get the MESSAGE OF LOVE? ;)

may have been a mistake, but am thinking use in the reagan campaign is a big reason why the song is used so wrong by so many.

is a whole bunch o' protest songs we enjoy and is discouraging to reflect and realize how relevant so many is today no less than when penned.

farm aid song from 80s. keep in mind we grew up on a small ranch, so the 80s farmer sufferings hit us where we lived.

and a couple more from earlier decades. am not a beatles fan, but the blackbird song is an exception. the nina simone version o a billy taylor song were used in a super bowl commercial a few years past- one o' the top highlights o' the game for us.

all is as timely in 2020 as they were in 80s or even 60s.

HA! Good Fun!

There was some respite in the 90's though.

Too bad I could never really into JRPG's gameplay wise but back in the day they really got the music and theme down.  We may never see such unique talent ever again.
