Singer John Mellencamp has always been a man of the people. He was instrumental in Farm Aid and other causes. But I never saw him as a rocker who made powerful statements, like Bruce Springsteen.
But tonight Mellencamp posted a stunning statement to Twitter and social media about the continual mass shootings in this country. Mellencamp is writing to the gun lobby and to the people who support it. He says: “Politicians don’t give a f*ck about you, they don’t give a f*ck about me, they don’t give a f*ck about our children.”
This is for all the people living in little pink houses.
