    I didn't want to put this in the flame zone and GD is for non-political stuff.

    I'm sorry but I must I love the star spangled banner. And I mean the whole thing, not just the first verse. It just so greatly describes our country and I get pissed off to all hell when people try an screw it up (our nation that is). Honestly, not lying, I tear up whenever I hear the whole thing sung in full. Americas reputation has been sullied, our nations leaders have dragged it through the mud and we've got to bring ourselves back to the top. We are the great experiment as far as nations are concerned. We have held through all the tough stuff and we shouldn't fall now.

    Sorry just thought I'd say that.

    You realize of course the melody was stolen from a bawdy British drinking song?

    Well, the first states were stolen from bawdy drunk Brits, so that seems appropriate ;)

    Especially if you don't know the words or appreciate the country, eh?
