"Vaneta Becker wants to impose a fine of $25... on singers who dare to improvise, extemporise or undermine the United States' national anthem."
I've never heard of this person before, but congratulations to Vaneta Becker for stepping into the limelight with such a ludicrously misguided attempt at upholding American values, which — hello?! — include free speech.
Can you think of any similar cases of American politicians stepping onto the public stage and immediately falling flat on their face?
By the way, would you slap a fine on these kids?
Clue to Becker: "The Star-Spangled Banner" is itself a re-write of another song.
