    I don't understand why this is a big deal. Rockstars and rappers have been making anti-authoritarian music ever since there were rockstars and rappers. They grow older and sometimes become politically and socially active. They then interface with political and social leaders. Ho-hum.

    This is my favorite Common song:



    This is Common ballin' out

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    A couple the posts are disappointing because I was starting to think a couple of you could think.

    I'm sorry but rap was invented because these scum bags can't use proper English and they all use poor language and insult people mostly women.

    Michelle Obama is the most wasteful women ever in the White House, she and Barack are acting like people who were on welfare and just hit the lotto.

    Is it a side-issue? Certainly. I wouldn't spend nearly this much time derailing it.
    Easy E talked about shooting cops: F The Police one my fav songs. lol.. Was the right so upset when RR invited him to the White House? It is so damn hypocrital and seems only Mellie would answer my question.
