    It's also a lousy anthem, given that singing it requires considerable talent due to the song's unusually wide range of notes.

    "America the Beautiful" would be a viable candidate.

    Let them grow a pair and deal with our history.

    They obviously miss the entire point of what that song is about.

    Its not meant to be a pretty or happy song.
    Monuments, then coinage will go. Coins are double offensive..religious overtones and images of offensive people. Time for....Stokely Carmichael or RuPaul. The left will be joyous.

    Would that not support the suggestion that the anthem is a little anachronistic?

    because of these lyrics:



    Should we dump it?

    If so, what song should replace it?

    poor snowflakes



    no.... keep it just for spite.
