He’s usually seen with songwriting partner Big Kenny Alphin, but it’s Big Brother that has John Rich’s attention today. It turns about there were quite a few grandfathers out there who saw the surveillance state coming.



  • KansasGirl

    I remember Mr. Rich.
    That was when I felt safe, cause I knew my kin would make it so.

  • CryingGlitterEagle

    Shut up and sing(unless I agree with what you’re singing)!

    • Abiss

      Ah…then by all means – just shut up.

  • Jeremy

    John Rich is a great guy and a smart guy as well.He is no fan of the Obummer that is for sure.

    • lainer51

      if he was a fan, “great” and “smart” would be oxymorons.

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    I was always told that “God is watching us,” and “God sees everything”…. And then, HE was (S)elected… #RightWard Jawamax 8<{D}

  • Clete Torres

    Seems that a lot of our forebears were right after all.

    I’ve noticed that the older I get, the smarter they were. (Sorry if grammatically incorrect, it’s my Southern coming out for an airing)

  • Lisa Dean

    If this was to “protect Americans” as we were told by O; then why couldn’t they figure out that soldiers stationed at Ft. Hood would be shot by a soldier in the US and that Boston was going to be attacked by two guys who were also in the US? I mean, they used computers and cell phones to communicate.

  • Markward

    And that’s why he’s one of my favorite musicians.

  • LegalizeShemp

    Remember when liberals mocked and ridiculed the “black helicopter conspiracy theorist doomsday preppers”? Just a bunch of wacko right wing extremists right? Now who was right?

    • Richo

      Remember when cons mocked liberals who criticized the Patriot act? Just a bunch of wacko left wing anti-American extremists right? Because obviously we have a “war on terror” to fight? Now who was right?

      • LegalizeShemp

        Nice try, but you’re engaging in moral relativism Freako. The Patriot Act was designed to spy on terrorists or potential terrorists, not Americans who dare disagree with Obama and the Demonrat Left. You Demonrats are using it to spy on your political opponents. Of course you try to equate the two cause your clownboy President just got got with his pants down and you’re flailing around trying to blame Bush, the last bastion of the left wing scoundrel. And, the fact that you failed to stop the Boston terror attacks shows there is indeed a war on terror to fight and your surveillance is not effective in stopping it. Another liberal clown who’s outrage depends on party affiliation.

        • Ronald

          I think the point is that liberals saw where it could go. Now, ironically, they have allowed the very thing they were afraid of to happen.

          Most importantly, this is a ratcheting up effect that is completely independent of who is in the white house.

      • lainer51

        Remember when the Boston bomber was served up on a platter to this govt., and, much to his pleasure, the info was handled like the keystone cops… get out of my business, you are too incompetent to be worthy.

  • OLLPOH # UnBanHana!!!!!!!

    This pales and is beyond the Patriot Act….

    The natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on Earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man, but only to have the law of nature for his rule.

    Samuel Adams

    One of The Founding Fathers of The United States of America

    Obama believes because his daddy was tracked by the FBI and he and Michelle gave up their personal privacy that we have to feel their pain too. Just wish you all had read his autobiographies (you might find them free in PDF) to know that they are his Manifesto. Do you know who and what he studied? His daddy was a communist.
