Bruce is an idiot . He favors business as usual as a Klinton fan . He’s certainly not for the “working man ” that he always sings about and praises.

Springsteen wouldn’t know what “The Resistance” is if it smacked him in the face. All he has to do is look at World War II to see what “The Resistance” really is. And, it’s not Bruce Springsteen and his “snowflake” followers.

Bruce’s music has been terrible for the past 10-20 years. He sounds like a wounded dog when he sings, and sometimes he screams so loud it hurts the ears. You can’t understand what he’s singing about anymore.
