Hail To The Chief

i love the grand melody of Hail To The Chief. It's always inspiring. But did you know that there are lyrics to that song?

Hail to the Chief we have chos-en for the na - tion,
Hail to the Chief! We sa-lute him, one and all.
Hail to the Chief, as we pledge co-op - er -a- tion
In proud ful-fill-ment of a great, no-ble call.

Yours is the aim to make this grand coun-try grand-er,
This you will do, That's our strong, firm be-lief.
Hail to the one we se-lect-ed as com-mand-er,
Hail to the Pres-i-dent! Hail to the Chief!

Yay, four more years!

I always sing in my head...

"Hail to the Chief he's the one that we should hail to..."

Even though it is woefully wrong : )

Annika I found your site via the BFL link. I enjoyed reading "100 things about me." The piercing & tattoo part I have a difficult time with as I have a 18 year old daughter - a freshmen at ASU - who would love another tattoo or piercing.

Anyway I love music and one song I find very inspring is The Battle Hymn of The Republic.

Here's a link via MSN that allows you to hear a number of versions before you buy - of course.

I like the US Army Band and Mormon Tabernacle versions.

Tell me what you think?

Cheers - Mike Siegwarth

I guess it's better than "God Save The President."

Hey I have tattoos too and I love them ! :)

What an odd tangent from Hail to the Chief, but for the record, I have no tattoos or piercings of my own and never expect to, but tattooed and/or pierced girls have very much rocked my world. As long as it's not excessive.

It must SUCK to get your asses kicked by anti-war protesters. ... and this shit will happen everytime you pussies try and step up.

protest warrior asskicking

While anti-Bush protesters had a strong showing for the day and vocalized their dissent, the seemingly silly anti-anti-Bush protesters organized by groups such as FreeRepublic and Protest Warriors did not fare as well.

One of the most publicized incidents of the day involved the Protest Warriors and their gathering dubbed, "Operation Hail to the Chief." According to the Washington Post, the Protest Warriors' event drew out a laughable 13 supporters. Unfazed by their lack of numbers, they moved forward with their mission to provoke opposing groups. The group "infiltrated" an anti-Bush rally with signs such as "Say no to war unless a Democrat is president" and "Not to brag, but Bush won, so shove it!"

Promptly, and some would argue appropriately, a leader of the Protest Warrior's group, Gil Kobrin, was on the ground getting his "ass kicked" as one witness stated.

You cunts!

Stop by and visit me once you've learned to piss standing up, Bruin. I have something for you.

Bruin, laughy laughy laughy all ye like. They kicked his ass for carrying a sign and that's just fine and dandy with you leftard phony peace-loving sociopathic skidmarks on the shorts of humanity. Empty yer Stalinist shitsack somewhere else, Asscap.

(Please excuse any impolite language, Annika. And sincerest appologies for any errant punctuation and/or spelling.)

Atleast now we have proof now that liberals' talk about "tolernance" for "diverse viewpoints" is nothing more than sloganeering.
