"The Star Spangled Banner" sung by Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey - The Star Spangled Banner @ 2002 Superbowl

O thus be it ever, where freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation.
Blest with victory and peace,
may the Heaven rescued land,
praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, and this be our motto:
"In God is our trust!" And the Star-Spangled Banner in triumph shall wave.
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave! --- 3rd Verse of our National Anthem

Ft. McHenry is a majestic place of gallantry in our nation's history. Major Armistead defended her, and a 'few' decades later, General Armistead led his Confederates on a Picket's Charge at Gettysburg on July 4, 1863! WHAT A COUNTRY!! Happy 232nd Birthday America and never forget the Battle of Gettysburg...

Mariah Carey has a heck of a voice and is really pretty. I think I like Martina Mcbrides renditions of patriotic songs better though.

Thank you Wild Thing- !!
I hope I never hear or see Rene Marie again -
Being a Red Neck Woman-
I have to admit my taste run more to Toby Keith's
Courtesy of the- Red- White and Blue
But I do Love the you tube video you have of
Proud to Be an American !!
When I hear patriotic songs- I cry! --

Mariah Carey's performance of our one and only national anthem reflects the pride, joy, patriotism, and respect most Americans feel about our country.

This is in sharp contrast to Rene Marie's arrogant mockery of the country with her shameful exhibition of a phony black separatist "anthem" that has nothing to do with the real United States of America.

Thank you WT. Mariah Carey does a great rendition that does honor to our nation. Nothing like Rene Marie's Obamination song.

From Monday's speech with Obama spouting his superiority complex laden musings on a definition of patriotism, he took a page from Hillary's playbook of her down home yarns and spun this tale:

Obama: "I remember, when living for four years in Indonesia as a child, I listened to my mother reading me the first lines of the Declaration of Independence, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they're endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

The first lines of the Declaration of Independence.

CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America.
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

Stanley Ann Dunham was Obama's mother, a known Communist sympathiser and Marxist, I envision her reading the Communist Manifesto not the Declaration of Independence to him, I'll call Bullshit on his story.

Kind of makes you wonder how this condescending bright boy made it through Harvard and it also challenges the intellect of the speech writer not to mention that of Obama's intended audience. Gnaw on that all you Marxist bastards.

Thank you all so much. I love hearing what you all have to say and think all the things that are discussed here. You all mean so very much to me.

Happy July 4th to my online family.

I'm trapped here in Aurora next to the DNC site of the August debacle-to-be. They'll surely have Rene Marie singing for them when the Big Eared HusseinO accepts his pre-coronation robe in the Broncos' stadium. I previously invited you to come visit, Chrissy. If Obama speaking at Invesco Field doesn't sicken you I'll be surprised. Invite is still open.

Oh, where is Don Imus when we need him?

Hi Horace it is so good to see you. I sure would love to I just can't get away.

LOL Love the remark about Imus. hahaahahhahaa

I will be watching the entire thing on TV, I have always watched both the DNC and RNC conventions.

I love Denver and the State of Col. I wish the dems had picked some State that is not one of my favorites to mess with. I posted the other day how they are making it all enviro green safe for the DNC. LOL
