    hey at least the one in the post you quoted is only 30 seconds long.. plus people are welcome to adapt it to their own singing style, this happens with our current anthem.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Those not within the bounds of California to New York (like those in Hawaii, Alaska and New England). Some people might have an issue with the song saying the land was "made" too. I think there are people who just chose to be offended and will be offended by anything.

    I've never heard anyone complain about those issues with this song.
