Remember, Information is not knowledge; Knowledge is not Wisdom; Wisdom is not truth; Truth is not beauty; Beauty is not love; Love is not music; Music is the best.
Most people wouldn't know music if it came up and bit them on the ass.

The United States is a nation of laws: badly written and randomly enforced.
Rock music was never written for or performed for conservative tastes.
Government is the Entertainment Division

Communism doesn't work because people like to own stuff.
Asked random questions about the First Amendment and how they would like to have it applied, if you believe in polls at all, the average American wants no part of it.

The illusion of freedom [in America] will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion.

In the fight between you and the world, back the world.
Art is making something out of nothing and selling it.
You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline -- it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.
If lyrics make people do things,
how come we don't love each other?
