Are They Joking?

       When Estase was a teenager he listened to a crappy Irish band called U2.  They had a song on their album "Rattle and Hum" called "Bullet the Blue Sky."  After listening to this dreck a couple of hundred times, Estase realized "Bullet the Blue Sky" was an indictment of the United States as a militaristic, nasty, money-obsessed country.  In other words, U2 was Obama before Obama was Obama.  At that point, Boner and all his little drunkie friends became anethema to Estase.  At that point, I became extremely suspicious of rock musicians and their wisdom in general.  So when Estase learned Adam Levine, the tatooed sex-obsessed frontman of Maroon 5 said "I hate this country" on The Voice, he  did not surprise anyone.  Popular culture helped elect Oh Blah Blah because the actors and musicians despise our military, our traditions, and the capitalist system that made them rich.  Scarlett Johannson seems much uglier when you consider that she is a pro-abort who backs Oh Blah Blah.  Was Levine joking?  Was Johannson joking? Was Bono joking?
