Quote of the Day

"Donald Trump's use of 'Rockin' in the Free World' was not authorized. Mr. Young is a longtime supporter of Bernie Sanders."Elliot Roberts, manager of Neil Young, whose song "Rockin' in the Free World" was used by Donald Trump during his presidential announcement yesterday.

Republicans, WHO TOTES LOVE THE FREE MARKET YO, have a rich history of stealing liberals' songs for their garbage campaigns. And a rich history of misunderstanding those songs. "Rockin' in the Free World," for example, is a song critical of George H.W. Bush's administration and its contempt for the poor.
