    Another dead commie. He can join dead CPUSA, Gus Hall, Rosenbergs, Harry Dexter White, Alger Hiss, Lenin, Stalin, and Mao in hell. He was a traitor to this country.

    Pete Seeger was a better American than Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Coulter, Malkin, Bachmann and every other Teabagging cretin on the Reich...oops....Right.

    The fact that he STILL riles up the reactionaries proves he was on a righteous path.

    Yep. One of those. A brave, patriotic American.

    He certainly was one of those.

    He was an American who had the one quality that most Americans lack... He was a free thinker with the courage to speak up. The people that Djigoo listed would stomp on the flag for a bigger paycheck !!!

    Springsteen's Seeger Sessions album is one of my favorites. Got to see Seeger and Arlo Guthrie together in Minneapolis one summer. Lovely concert.

    Poor goo goo, hypocrisy must be in his DNA. He gets riled up by Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Coulter, Malkin, Bachmann and "Teabagging cretin(s)' and immediately proceeds to proclaims it a righteous path to be riled by the likes of Seeger but not Limbaugh et al.
    Hey djigoo - Just saw a sign in a pet shop window that had gerbils buy one get the other half price. Let me know if you're interested and I'll get you the address.
