a country song by Lee Greenwood from the '80s. Bombastic to begin with, it was used by those stupid armchair warriors who cheered the Persian Gulf war of 1991 while watching it happen on the damn TV while swilling beer. These dumbfuckcretinshave never served in the Armed Forces, they don't know what it's like to be serving the country with the possibility of danger coming at any time - they think war is a spectator sport, a game. They think that anyone who isn't caught in the "spirit" of the "game" is "unpatriotic". It's the same old fucking shit now, only MUCH worse. This song is now used as a rallying anthem for all the fascist stupidshit dumbass jingoistic warmonger bastardassholes who rah-rah the war like cheerleaders (they call that "supporting the troops", then they don't want to pay for treatment for the disabled veterans that come home alive). This song is now for idiots of the highest degree who can't think for themselves. They are dumber than animals.
Anthony drives to work everyday with a Lee Greenwood CD playing in his car. The disc player is set to repeatly play "God Bless the U.S.A.". He also has a yellow ribbon on the car attenna and the rear bumper is festooned with "patriotic" bumper stickers that childishly slam all those who oppose the Iraq war and celebrates it. He thinks it's all a game, he watches the news every day just to see how many "towel heads" were killed that day. "God Bless the U.S.A." is his favorite song of all time and cheering the war like the spectator he is - that's his life.

I don't care what any of you say, this song is possibly the greatest song of all time. For God's sake, let Lee Greenwood be patriotic and don't bash his ass. By the way, the song was actually written in 1979, NOT during the Gulf War. Fucking idiots.
