    It is if I take adverse possession of it and put you off of it.


    Here's a little music that you may or may not like:

    Whether you or anyone else likes it or not that's the way that it is in the USA.

    If you listen to the music you might want to think about it just a little bit, it has a message.

    Deal with it.

    And have a nice day.

    I'm not into trying, I'm into doing.

    I'm 70-years old and I've never failed so far.


    Mainly because the majority of Americans support the same ideas that I support.

    Doesn't the lyrics seems a little nationalistic and anti-environmental? Yes, it was a good song in response to "God Bless America" and for the times in which Woody Guthrie wrote it 74 years ago but things change. Now we should have a more ecologically friendly and universal lyrics. Clearly an accident of birth nation doesn't determine what you own and you can't do whatever you wish to the earth. By the time Seeger sang that song in your video, he surely should have known better.

    It's generally not a compelling argument to tell other people that they don't agree with you only because they aren't listening close enough.

    Pete Seeger. Subversive from the beginning.

    I wonder how many will be offended by this song?

    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
