I know Pat wrote this song long before any of the current political madness we are experiencing began, but the meaning and purpose of the title becomes more relevant every day.

I loved seeing the pile of Executive Orders to reverse many of Trump’s actions. There is still a great division in the US, but a lot of Trump’s followers are jumping ship. I am 66 years old and 2020 was the worst year of my life and it didn’t have to happen the way it did. I am holding out hope that once again we will be the United States instead of the Divided States. Jazz unites and I can’t wait for the return of live Jazz.

I was tempted to turn of the audio and put on the movie soundtrack with Pat and David Bowie version of This Is Not America or the Charlie Haden Liberation Music Orchestra instrumental version. No matter whether you identify as a Democrat or Republican if you are a true American, I was shocked by what happened. This is not America and this is not Democracy.

Bookmark and Share Hambone, I’ve been thinking a lot about Pat’s and David Bowie’s album. ....and thinking how ...25 years later ... it is the best fitting title for our times. 75percent of Republicans still think the election was rigged. ( Newsweek Poll). This is NOT America. !!!,

Bookmark and Share Great comment, hambone! I was just thinking about the relevance of that song title yesterday. It’s gonna take a lot to heal us and Pat’s music at this time sure helps.
