Sing along with me ..."Where have his millions gone, why in a bank account".

Look, I'm not one wish one dead, fer chrisakes he lived a damned long friggen life full of all the riches ones fame could afford, good on him for good genes.

All the while knowing his said riches were based on a lie...a stupid, insipid lie. Good for him and his heirs, now they can run around with the Occupy Wall Streeters with wild abanbon and then jump in their limos and head off to the Hamptons in self-righteous glee.

Funny how people can get so critical on someone using his "right to free speech" ya either agree with it or not. Don't make him any better or worse then the rest of us :)

Lets see, Seeger bad communist/Putin good communist. A con that makes money good/any other bad. OK I got it now but I do detect a distinct pattern developing like constitutional rights for only those that fall in line.
I guess generations change but I was brought up to not speak ill of the dead.

Ironically, Natives don't speak of the dead at all. The epitome of letting them rest in peace ;)

I think the criticism was about his hippocracy.
And kiss my butt Sam with your little quips from the past. Your generation of hippies, Nam vets, and free lovers broke more of the "rules of polite society" then mine could even think about. Not that I am far behind you in age. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone eh?
