Dixie Chicks statement...
    #1385391 - 03/17/03 06:55 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

What a dumb bitch she was for saying that, look at the backlash they're getting from it. C'mon, is it a secret that 99% of the country music community supports Bush on what he's doing. Radio stations around the country are pulling their song... hahah.. this is great. She has a right to speak her mind, (even though shes an ignorant bimbo about it) but in the situation that group is and to do it so publically is just moronic.

Maybe if she educated herself a little next time before flappin her lips the group wouldn't suffer from her ignorance. This is almost as sad as the idiots who say Bush is as much of a world threat as Saddam Hussein is.

Funny stuff, I know a lot of you libbies are going to getting your panties wound from this, let's just try to keep the facts REAL and not exagerate like you all typically do.

Musicians United to Win without War is a loose coalition of contemporary musicians who feel that in the rush to war by the Bush administration the voices of reason and debate have been trampled and ignored. We feel that war is not inevitable, though to be honest the US media and government have made us feel that it has become a forgone conclusion. We have no love for Saddam Hussein, but believe that tough UN inspections have not yet shown enough evidence in justification of invasion and that continued UN inspections over the years have managed to remove many of his arms and weapons and can continue to do so. We believe in discussion without jargon - that weapons of mass destruction, regime change and other administration catch phrases are doublespeak, in the words of George Orwell. We believe that this planned invasion might be playing right into the hands of Al Qaeda and others, who will use it as an excuse to rally anti-American and anti-Western sentiment despite no great love for Saddam on their parts.

Most of us have never met one another - so it is difficult to presume that all of us agree on and believe in the same things - I'm sure our individual feelings are wide ranging on this subject and a host of others...but remarkably it seems that we all realize that we at least agree on this one basic tenet, that a war right now is premature and unnecessary. It is amazing and remarkable that such a disparate group of musicians can be united so quickly (this was organized only a few weeks ago) and simply....that is a testament to our apprehensions, our faith and the strengths of our belief. This is a group who might argue and disagree over many things, the imaginary possibility of some of us working together is a source of constant laughter, yet here we are, united at least for a moment on this one issue.

Let our friends and children know that we wanted our voices to be heard, that we spoke out against something we felt was wrong, absurd and dangerous to all of our futures.

Isn't Jay Z dead? I could be wrong.

Personally i don't care if these people are against the war, a majority of them need the publicity to sell their albums....hell most of them aren't all that good.

People listen to these groups for their music (or lack there of) ability not their political views.

I like country music and especially the kind of pop country the Dixie Chicks do. I think they'de have been smarter to keep their mouths shut though. The rednecks that buy up the most of their records were on TV last night stomping their albums, lol. Every time I see a Harry Potter book burning or a censorship demonstration I think how hate filled and closed minded those people are and it always reminds me of images of 1930's Germany and the burning of books which the party found contemptable.

That was last year, the hillbillies think Harry Potter teaches their kids satanism, witchcraft, and the occult. The had a big demonstration and burned all the Harry Potter books and toys they could find. It even made the news.

Harry Potter isn't fictional?

A quadruple post!!!!  I think you just set a new shroomery record. :wink:


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers
