    The Dixie Chicks, are to, John Lennon, as...

    First, the link:

    http://apnews1.iwon.com//article/200...=home&SEC=news

    Doesn't that sound just like that Beatles Boycott? You know,
    when Lennon said The Beatles were bigger than Jesus... ?

    The Dixie Chicks really screwed themselves over. They should
    have known that the typical Country Music fan is going to
    support Bush. Not only support Bush, but support War in general.
    They probably think of war as a fancy version of deer hunting.

    When I think of someone that listens to country-music exclusively,
    I don't think of a liberal-hippie that protests at their state's
    capitol every thursday afternoon. No, I think of a greasy, scruffy-
    faced, middle-aged man that spends the hours of 6-11pm in a
    smokey, honky-tonk bar drinking beer while "Achy Breaky Heart"
    plays from an old Jukebox in the background. All the while at
    home, the chicken-fried steak that his wife/sister made him for
    dinner sits on a TV Tray, getting colder and colder as each minute
    passes.

    The Dixie Chicks should have really thought before making that
    statement. Their music career is over. They're going to have to
    go Alternative, Punk, or even Pop if they want to continue to be
    successful in the music industry.

    Personal note: I think the Beatles sucked.

    lol! I don't know about "fancy". I'd say they see war as deer hunting with bigger guns.

    Yeah, I better take that back. They didn't literally suck, I just don't
    like them.

    i love the beatles. of course i think country music is the devil's spawn too. maybe music groups should shut up and not make political statements. that would be the smart thing to do in my opinion.
    yum, yum potatoes!!!!!

    Because, y'know, the Beatles never did that...

    The war question has become very divisive. People on both sides think the supporters of the other side must be crazy. The extended diplomatic attempts (or President Bush yelling until he gets his way, as I personally see it) have succeeded at one thing: heaping up anomocity in amounts not seen for a long time. I am very thankful for President Bush creating such a huge rift between the United States and Western Europe. That will be good for America in the coming years.

    Musicians, actors, and other entertainers have as much a right to express their opinions as a Ph.D.'d political scientist. In the end, unfortunately, it is pointless because President Bush decided to go to war over a year ago, continuing a process of satisying the various constituencies of his party's conservative far right.

    So people said they will not buy their records because the lead singer let slip she is ashamed of her democratically not-elected, warmongering president ? Wow, what a terrorist swine. Dixie Chicks were on german TV last night and it sounded pretty good despite being labeled as country. I guess I will look for some CDs today.

    Well the weeks went by and
    Spring turned to Summer
    And Summer faded into Fall
    And it turns out he was a missing person
    who nobody missed at all
    hth
    -nv

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
