    Born in the USA isnt even meant to be a patriotic song. You include that but not God Bless the USA by Lee Greenwood?

    I really don’t believe that the killing of bin Laden is a cause for celebration. My son is currently stationed in Afghanistan. We need to be mindful and concerned for the safety of all of our troops in the coming days, weeks, months. I’ll celebrate when ALL of our troops are home.
