No offense, but why would you want yet another multi-millionaire entertainment celeb showing up?

I agree! Where are these musicians who write music about the working class. <No offense, but why would you want yet another multi-millionaire entertainment celeb showing up?> ----> we need a multi-millionaire celeb b/c they he has power and a voice in this country...and he stands for something in his music. The fact that he made a lot of money on his music doesn't mean he can't support the cause. Look at Matt Damon...he has made more intelligent points than all our politicians put together...and he has called for taxation of the rich and of himself.

problem is Bruce waves an American flag youngster. believes in the American way of life and the American dream. not likely you'll get him to show up at a socialist demonstration

Robert the Bruce: A rebellion has begun.

Robert Bruce, Sr.: Under whom?

Robert the Bruce: A commoner named William Wallace.

Robert Bruce Sr.: We will embrace this rebellion. You will support it from our lands in the north while I gain English favor by condemning it, and ordering it opposed from our lands in the south. Sit down. Stay a while.

Robert the Bruce: This Wallace, he doesn't even have a knighthood, but he fights with passion and he inspires.

Robert Bruce, Sr.: And you wish to charge off and fight as he did. So would I.

Robert the Bruce: Well, maybe it's time.

Robert Bruce, Sr.: It is time to survive. You're the 17th Robert Bruce. The 16 before you passed you land and title because they didn't charge in. Call a meeting of the nobles.

Robert the Bruce: But they do nothing but talk.

Robert Bruce, Sr.: Rightly so. They're as rich in English titles and lands as they are in Scottish, just as we are. You admire this man, this William Wallace. Uncompromising men are easy to admire. He has courage, so does a dog. But it is exactly the ability to compromise that makes a man noble. And understand this: Edward Longshanks is the most ruthless king ever to sit in the throne of England. And none of us, and nothing of Scotland will remain, unless we are as ruthless. Give in to our nobles. Knowing their minds is the key to the throne.

Bruce came out for Obama, and now probably regrets getting involved.

Bobby despises that stupid rebellion/change label. He calls him self a song and dance man. Don't associate the great one Zimmy we these losers. Bob Dylan is the greatest living artist, in the USA. We love you Bob !!

Bob Dylan is a faker, joker man. He does not belong here. We need Barak to come with Willie Nelson

Real movements scare the shit out of the fake celebrity progressives.

He wrote some good songs, but when it comes to this stuff he is a puppet for the Democrats. Bruuuuuuuuuccce can stay home.

[-] 1 points by thebeastchasingitstail (1912) 3 years ago

Yea, I'm surprised he hasn't come out.

We need a voice

Micheal McDonald has a good voice.

Meet me in the blue and white tent in the south west corner of the park. I feel like being with somebody....

We need Willie Nelson here. He speaks for the down trodden and he always has weed.
