Oh shucks. I really wanted a sweater vest emblazoned with the Megadeth logo. I wanted to pick up a Megadeth chastity belt for the 14 year old virgin cousin that lives in the sticks I wuz gonna merry.

@jersh, you can't make the blind see. You can point out all the fact you want but the truly lost and liberal will call you a racist, homophobic bible thumper. That in itself is enough to negate all the facts you want to point out. Personally I want to start a write in campaign for Ted Nugent for president.

It's really cute when the left side of the political spectrum devises a faint version of the truth and then immediately falls on the same old rant about Republicans being "homophobic, bible thumping hate mongers". That is why liberals are not taken seriously.

‘I will promise you this, that if we have not gotten our troops out by the time I am President, it is the first thing I will do. I will get our troops home. We will bring an end to this war. You can take that to the bank.’ B. Obama

Yep he really got us out of those wars, that's why we're still there 4 years later.

@stratguit62 You couldn't possibly be more misinformed. Obama has not gotten us out of anything... We are still in Iraq AND Afghanistan. We were involved in Libya, we ARE involved in Syria, the government IS actively seeking war with Iran. We have been bombing Pakistan, drone strikes in Pakistan and Syria. The authorization of drones for use in surveillance over the U.S. He may have been president when Obama was killed but that process was started years before. He didn't come up with some grand plan that changed the manhunt for the better. He just continued on with what was already underway.

What you say about fighting down the Congress is completely idiotic. Ever hear of checks and balances? A president with absolute power is a dictator, he HAS to work WITH the congress, that is the entire point. The executive branch of the government by definition enforces law, it was never not ever supposed to write law. Obama rules by executive order. He is an elected dictator. It isn't his job to ignore the congress.

Lastly, do you even know what universal healthcare is? Obviously not. Universal health care is tax payer paid medical care without any cost at the time of visit. It isn't free, taxes are higher in countries with universal healthcare and there are waiting lists despite what universal healthcare advocates claim. Ask anyone that lives in a country with it. The most important part of you claim is that it is not accurate even in the slightest. We Obama did was get a mandate passed. The mandate forces everyone to BUY health insurance or face tax penalties. What do you think will happen when everyone in the country is forced to buy insurance? Do you think our healthcare will become cheaper? It won't! It will become far more expensive. Insurance companies are already not kind, caring entities. They deny coverage all the time already and the cost is expensive. When you are forced to buy something the cost goes through the roof. It's not like car insurance where the potential cost is very small in comparison. A hospital stay can easily cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. The cost of healthcare will skyrocket. Universal health care sets limits on how much providers can charge for any given treatment. That isn't going to happen here. The cost of an aspirin in a hospital will still be 30 bucks. This is not a good thing.. You won't have "free" health care come 2014. You will however, have very expensive health care, if you can afford it at all. If you can't afford it you will be taxed. Read something man, wake the hell up. You really don't know what you're talking about.

The economy is by no means back on track. Unemployment is still very high and there has been no growth. The actual unemployment rate is around 21% and every year a new batch of college grads enter the work force increasing that number. Obama wants a debt ceiling increase every time they get close. How is bringing on more debt going to solve the problem that this country is broke? Our dollar is only worth about 3 cents. Obama has continued the policies of Bush and expanding upon them if you don't realize that you are a fool.

I couldn't agree more. Seems like as some of these thrash and metal pioneers get older, they also find "Jesus", the GOP, homophobia, racism and get soft in the head. It's so sad to see what Mustaine has turned into. I remember meeting him after a show in SF in 1985. He was a decent guy. His lyrics used to be creative and always ran against the rich white man's war mongering establishment. As much as I wanted to go see Motorhead recently, the fact that part of my ticket money would go to Megadeth's coffers as the headlining act caused me to stay home.

So born again once again has brought us another soul saved by the 1%. He is a rich guy who can't see what the rest of us are complaining about. Of course he wants to see Obama out of office and one of his own as president.
Obama got us out of two stupid wars, got Bin Laden, gave us universal coverage and has fought down the stupidest Congress in our history.
Oh and the economy is getting back on track despite the efforts of Mustaines guys to kill it.
So I now have one more reason to not spend time with Mustaine. The hate crowd has probably always been a part of death metal but it does bring it home.
Santorum is an idiot trying to drag us back 50 years.. Go for it Mustaine!

Mustaine wrote "Rust in Peace", an album that is almost entirely against the first Bush's New World Order is now a biblethumping, homophobic, Republican racist who calls Obama a divisive President.
Thankfully we have Gary Holt and Scott Ian who are still fanning the flames of the LIBERAL Thrash Metal movement. That's right, those of us who were there know what it was really about and just how Anti-Reagan the whole thing was.

Don't forget about SLAYER. Their last 2 releases, "Christ Illusion" and "World Painted Blood" have some brilliant commentary in their songs lyrics about how screwed up the American political system is.

Looks like he didn't like the response he got, so now he's backpedaling. Not surprising . . .
