Detest

I detest the Zionist Baron Sasha Cohen.I loved Jimi Hendrix' version of the Star Spangled (Blood Spattered) Banner.
9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.
You KNOW without a doubt the videos are fake,right ?!
Planes don't meld into steel and concrete buildings.They crash into them !!!!!!!
It's amazing how the building ate the plane !!!
Imagine those fragile wings cutting slots in massive steel columns !!!!!
How STUPID can they think the people are to believe that crap ??!!

Anthems, well.

Not particularly enamoured with ours, "Advance Australia Fair", I do prefer the one we had before, God Save the Queen (the same anthem as Britain, and New Zealand at the time).

I do rather like "God Defend New Zealand", musically it's better than Advance Australia Fair.
I also like "Oh Canada", again musically it's good.

The US national anthem I am afraid I dislike, again for musical reasons. It seems to have been composed with a bit of everything they thought was "grand" with the result it sounds like a mish mash.

The French anthem, musically, a classic,although I think all those bloodthirsty words in all those anthems are a bit old hat.

The Chinese anthem and it's contrived beginning usually synched to some good goody in the army throwing the flag out on the beat, well it works at the start but turns into a dreary facsimile of every other military marching composition.

Now, I'll get back to watching that doco, before I offend anyone else.....

I really love the NZ anthem and it often brings a little tear to my eye when the AB's beats the Wallabies  ............   

God of nations! at Thy feet

In the bonds of love we meet,

Hear our voices, we entreat,

God defend our Free Land.

Guard Pacific's triple star,

From the shafts of strife and war,

Make her praises heard afar,

God defend New Zealand

Funny enough, I also share the opinion that the French and the Russian national anthems are the best ones (even before reading those statistics). However, I'd place Russia before France here.
The french one has the coolest lyrics and a good, marching tune while the russian one just sounds really cool (but I don't understand the lyrics as I don't know russian).

The Chinese one isn't that far away from the French anthem, I think - neither in terms of lyrics nor in terms of style.

But as it goes for me,more important is this:

    as schönste Land in Deutschlands Gau'n,

Germany, Germany above all,
Above everything in the world,       
When always, for protection,
We stand together as brothers.
From the Maas to the Memel
From the Etsch to the Belt -
Germany, Germany above all
Above all in the world.
           
German women, German loyalty,
German wine and German song,
Shall retain in the world,
Their old lovely ring
To inspire us to noble deeds
Our whole life long.
German women, German loyalty

And way better than ...........

God save our old lard arse queen ..........
God keep our old lard arse queen in money ...........
