Land In Which We Happen To Live

Quite certain we've addressed this issue before. Let's see. Yup. Thought we'd specifically bitched about it being played during the seventh-inning stretch of games at Dodger Stadium (Also the fucking Yankees. How embarrassing to be linked w/ them.) perhaps not.

This arises in the context of sad weirdo Bryan Fischer (Real name: Brian Fisher.) who at least knows it sho' nuff wasn't George W(orst). Bush who "kept us safe" after ('though not before & during 11 September 2001) it was ... well:
“Have we learned? I don’t know. I think we’ve learned in part,” he continued. “One of the things we’ve done is we’ve gone to prayer at the seventh inning of every Major League Baseball game in Los Angeles, in New York and during the playoffs, and we pray, ‘God Bless America… Guide us through the night with a light from above.’”

“That’s not something that happened before 9/11. So, that’s one of the outcomes of 9/11. You have tens of thousands of baseball fans converting arenas into centers for intercessory prayer, for God to watch over, bless and guide the United States of America. And I think one of the reasons we haven’t been hit since 9/11 is that we learned that lesson.”
Is us larnin'?

Hey, exciting new feature from Raw Story: Embedding the whole mess. Let's give it a shot.

Bryan Fischer: Singing ‘God Bless America’ prevents terrorist attacks (via Raw Story )
The director of issues analysis of a conservative fundamentalist Christian organization on Thursday asserted that the terrorists who attacked the United States on Sept. 11, 2001 were actually “the agents of God’s wrath” because they prompted “God Bless America” to be sung at Major League…

Thanks so much so saving our readers a click, you fucking commies.

NB: The jump or fold or break or whatever the fuck it's called was installed by the embed feature. Just Another Blog (From L.A.) does not endorse that shit. All, or nothing at all.

The embedded adverts add something that's been missing from your weblog. I do hope you get paid for them.

And from Mr. ™³²®©'s link: "Don't cry. We voted for Obama."

It does my heart good to learn via PBS that Woodie Guthrie wrong "This Land is Your Land" in response to that hackneyed, thumping, graceless godawful song.

THAT's what we should be singing in the 7th inning stretch.

Advertising Editor:
Whoa, waitaminnit!!! On our AdBlocked devil-box we see the word "advertisement." Are there ads in the real world? Has our island of purity in the Sea of Whores been despoiled? Nothing is free, we guess.

Thunder's sad too, 'cause he didn't vote for the Prez.

Irving Berlin was a hack. His estate too.
