White Stripes Suck | Reviewer: Bob | 7/28/07
I guess I need to kick myself out I'm an immigrant too, no wait a minute, I'm an American Indian (Native American for you PC lovers). So I'm not an immigrant too, Jack White, you dumb bastard. What the hell are these stupid lyrics supposed to mean anyway? Why don't you kick yourself out then Jack White?
Don't these people listen to their CDs after they record them or do they just listen to the stupid yesmen and dingleberries that surround them? It's like an audible "Emporer's New Clothes." The lead singer needs to get a reality and tell the chick on the drums to take it easy on the cymbal while you're at it, O.K.? Take some music lessons "A"holes.
This band/tune is so derivative, rip-offish of Black Sabbath's "War Pigs" much? Also Zepplinesque (first three Led Zep albums), except with nowhere near the talent or background (or respect for the blues) of LZ prior to their becoming Led Zepplin. And BTW, Steve Howe wants his chord progression back. They sound like an even cheesier version of Jet. Shows you how desperate record company execs are that such a band gets promoted, also the paucity of quality music currently that anyone thinks these people are anything near decent. It seems the only music that gets promoted commercially is that which can be used to garner acceptable profits for record companies. "The White Stripes," brought to you by the almighty dollar. I feel so sorry for anyone who thinks these people are talented/good, you're being starved for quality music like someone who's only ever eaten junk food without the knowledge that good healthy nutritious food exists because you've never experienced it.

Bleh | Reviewer: Heather | 7/23/07
I'm just going to say that... this song is awesome. And, if you're just going to fight over your political views, take it up somewhere else. This is a discussion about the song, not wars and crap.
For God's sake! | Reviewer: Kit | 7/18/07
STOP TALKING ABOUT YOUR POLITICAL VIEWS.
Talk about this over E-mail. I'm sure debating gives you such a rush, but a lot of us JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT PEOPLE THINK OF THE SONG.
Sod the lyrics in this one. The music is Great. Great song.
Forget the lyrics. Admire the music
To anonymous idealist writing to Brent... | Reviewer: Kevin | 7/16/07
Your rhetoric is very pretty and politically correct, but my biggest problem with you liberal idealists is that you don’t think beyond that. You typically completely ignore the CONSEQUENCES of your pretty ideals.
Yes, illegal immigrants do cost is a lot of money in tax dollars. They cost us the tax dollars the government isn’t receiving if those who employ illegal immigrants weren’t paying them under the table, the tax dollars spent on government agencies created to deal with illegal immigrants, and most significantly, the tax dollars spent on educating the children of illegal immigrants in the public education system, which they contribute no money towards.
And again, it would be very nice and pretty if we could just let anyone who wanted to come to America in, but if we as a nation were to adapt that policy, I would give our nation a year before total collapse. There are hundreds of millions that would take us up on that offer, most of which are unskilled and uneducated laborers. Such an increase in only one social class would cause such an influx in population that unemployment, homelessness, poverty, and overcrowding would crumble our economy leading to a second great depression much worse than the first. And this is completely ignoring that Muslim terrorists would also flood into our country, carrying out the everyday suicide bombings that already occur overseas, wreaking havoc, death, and destruction on what was left of our government. Oh wait, I’m being racist by calling all terrorists ‘Muslims’. Well, you show me what other religion calls for men, women, and children to strap bombs onto themselves and kill as many innocent civilians as possible, or what religion besides the Muslims is calling for a global war to eradicate the infidels and I will promptly apologize. You may argue that this is only a minority of the Muslims, and you are right, but it is not an insignificant minority. Obviously its enough to have taken over several governments and enough people to fund several multi-million dollar global terrorist organizations.
You say our men in Iraq should be zero, or all unarmed. First, if we pull out of Iraq now, it will lead to a massive civil war that will results in hundreds of thousands of deaths. It would also create an entire generation of middle-eastern children who despise the U.S. for ruining their country and their lives, and we certainly don’t need any more enemies in the Middle East. And if our troops were unarmed, they would be slaughtered by said Muslim extremists who are already doing their best to kill our troops.
I will end by saying this. Despite that I strongly disagree with almost all of your opinions, I do highly respect the maturity with which you present them. I get very frustrated with the ignorant masses who have no idea why they believe what they do and simply swear and cuss at those who disagree with them. Ignorant.
Stupids | Reviewer: Lunch. | 7/15/07
Holey fuck, some of you Americans are seemingly more stupid than Bush!!
Get a fucking life, jeez. Your country is an abomination to the entire world, I would have elected Paris Hilton for president faster than Bush.
Please, rednecks, keep your pro-war propaganda and pseudo-stalwart country enthusiasm to yourselves.
shut the hell up and just listen to the fucking song. | Reviewer: Daffy | 7/16/07
if anyone actually cares about your political views that you posted as a reply to song lyrics on a lyrics site, then i think they should be pushed off a cliff. but that's just my opinion.
this isn't a message board to argue over politics. if you wanna do that, go find one. here's not the place to do it.
Love it! | Reviewer: Lala | 7/16/07
Love the song, don't care what the lyrics are like, just listen to to music people! Love The White Stripes!

stupid pussy ass hippes | Reviewer: alec
anyone who thinks we shouldnt be in teh war is a fucking pussy, yea maybe we didnt go over there to save the iraqi people but there was athreat and that was our excuse, and the bottom line it sometiems you gotta make sacrifice to save your own ass, and hell why not kill to birds with one stone, now all those people are on the way to a free country. you people have been so blinded by the left wing media that you dont have any idea what is going on in the work, so go cut your balls off and sit and wait to get blown up, as long as rising fuel prices and global warming doesnt get you first, (yea, im saying global warming is a crock of shit but i dont feel like going over that now) and i dotn care what any of you ignorant assholes say because i know whats right.
you know | Reviewer: Julian
i like this song loads! yeah illegal immigrants are costing us money but so is searchin for nuclear weapons that don't exist and turning a blind idea to problem in Sudan and other war torn countries where millions die each day. its cute to see you little punks cowering behind a computer monitor with your little opinions. do something about the war or shut the fuck up. don't like it? rally, retaliate, boycott, leave. love it? JOIN THE ARMY THEN. don't complain about hippies while sipping your ice tea behind a monitor connected to a lyrics website. Immigrants, The united states is found on backstabbing,treachery, murder, and cruelty. or as some say, cunning, skill, strength, and courage. Open your eyes, do something, i do things to express my beliefs. Make music, paint picture, write a story, do something. No less, i love this song. inginuitive and well written.
Jeez, do you guys always start some kind of semi-political discussion when you listen to this tune or what? -.-

to brent: | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/10/07
brent, you ignorant ass, consider this:
1. the country into which a person is born is determined completely by chance. therefore, the fact that you were born into this country, and that another person was born outside of it, are utterly random. you cannot say, then, that you deserve more to live here than someone else, because the fact that you were born here, land that they were not, was not determined by you. is unethical of us to discriminate based upon random criteria, such as race, sex, or (in this case) country of origin.
2. Legal immigration is nigh upon impossible. it is an elitist system that favours the rich, and persons without the means to purchase their entry are the ones who need it most. it should be a right of any person to live in whichever country he or she wants, because country of origin is, as established in (1), random. Furthermore, you ignorantly assume that illegals cost you tax money. how, exactly? if they don't pay taxes, they cannot reap their benefits (it is impossible to get social security, for example, without a SSN). If they do pay taxes, which many do, then they are entitled to those benefits.
3. Generally the same as (2). Also: temper, temper.
4. I agree that there is such a thing as an american. however, the concept of an "american" is based upon culture, and anyone can assume a culture, even first generation immigrants. and if they are not assimilated, what is the harm done to you? the US is about diversity, and the varying world cultures that congregate here is what makes the country unique.
5. as i have already said, i believe that all people, regardless of race, socio-economic status, or country of origin, have the right to live where ever they'd like, and also have other inherent rights. if you cannot deal with a crowded city in the name of human rights, you have utterly missed the point of the united states. Furthermore, the brain stem is not responsible for comprehension. so if a person had "less than half a [sic] brain stem," they would be unable to comprehend such a sentence, among many other things (such as seeing, typing, et cetera).
6. Though the war in iraq is hardly the topic of this debate, i will respond here as well. It is not my war. The problem with the "majority rule" mentality that Lincoln imposed on the country is that it tramples on the rights of the minorities. even if the populace had elected bush before the war (which, as it turns out, they didn't), i would maintain that it is my right to disagree with the policies of the government. you make the point that we have over 100,000 men there. this is true. however, we should have zero men there (at least, zero armed men. troops can be used for constructive purposes in addition to destructive ones. see the republic of italy's involvement in afghanistan). I reject your premise, and therefore, your entire argument is invalid. The concept that we should leave the country if we disagree with its policies is also troubling. First, if we followed this advice, 72% of americans would have to leave. Secondly, dissent is more american than agreement. to be able to freely voice your opinions, even when they differ with those of the leaders, is the foundation of the country.
