    I'm sticking with freedom of speech--FIRST AMMENDMENT, baby! She was stating her opinion, just like billions of people do every dang day! What's the point? Besides, most of the people I talk to about the world are against it! So, where are these folks who are against it now? Why aren't some of the other celebs not sticking up for the Dixie Chics? This is what I want to know.

    I'm not for the war ONE BIT--I don't care if we are on the verge of war or if this is deemed disrespectful to my president. At this moment, on this issue I DON'T RESPECT HIM AT ALL. The people of this country and this war are saying "Don't send the troops" and he's just showing us all his lily-white butt and doing it anyway. Who needs that? Talk about someone in charge who is not complying with what the UN wants! JEEZ!

      I agree with the Dixie Chicks, as I totally disagree with the Bush Administration and I'm embarassed that Bush is the president. They have the right to free speech so I say go fo it. If people want to boycott, well, that's their right. Just like it's their right to waste their money on buying French wine and dumping it in the streets--bunch of morons!! As if any of this is going to prove anything. People are going to disagree on things, people are going to boycott things thinking that that's going to make a huge difference, and then there are people that will laugh in the other's people's faces for their stupidity thinking that will make a difference. Who knows if it really does? It's all a matter of their world, their dogma way of thinking.
      I know that I'm not buying anything American until I'm proud to be American (as of right now, I'm not), my own little protest and I know it's silly, but whatever. :p Oh, and I order French fries, French wine, French bread and I French kiss and I order sauerkraut, see Dashunds (sp?) and drink Russian vodka (okay, if I did I would) and whatever else, as this country is made up of all types of cultures and I don't consider myself to have American culture. Dang, I have to stop. :wall: :36:

              where are they?

              You know, i've often thought about the percentages that are posted about Americans supporting the war & i've been completely shocked! The #'s are very high in support of war!

              As some of you said, i don't know ANYONE (not that i know a whole lotta people but you know what i'm sayin) who's in support of the U.S. going to war w/Iraq........so where are all these people that are taking these polls in support of the Presidents decision??? & how did we get so sidetracked from the whole Sept. 11th tragedies & hunting for Osama?? I'm so mixed up w/all of this stuff going on & i live in the DC Area! YIKES!

              I will say this tho, my thoughts & prayers go out to all of those in the services who've been sent over, much respect!

                While I vehemently disagree with what she said I don't agree with radio stations banning her music. That being said here are my thoughts.

                If a radio station fears that they will loose advertisers they have a right to not play certian songs. That is a desisison that they have to make and just as we can't nor shouldn't stop the Dixie Chicks from say what they want we can't nor shouldn't stop the radio stations from doing what they want.

                Secondly the Dixie Chicks aren't being told they can't say anything against the president. At least not that I have heard. But they do have to accept the consiquences of what they say. That is the difference between having freedom of speech and not. In a country where you don't have freedom of speech you are imprisioned or killed for expressing your opinions. Just ask Saddam's brother-in-law who was jailed for refusing to vow his support of Saddam if you don't believe me.

                As far as supporting the war you can as me two different questions and recieve two seemingly different responses. If you ask me if I want our country to go to war I will respond "Hell no". However if you ask me if I think it is neccessary for us to go to war I will respond "Hell yes".

                Since I think it is imminate I am putting up my flags again. (I always have one up) The signs supporting our troops will go in my windows.

                Also you might note that now that our government is putting the stops on 12 years of political dialog you will start to see other countries starting to support us. Turkey just announced that they are going into emergancy session to allow us to use their country. And most of the surrounding countries of Iraq have also voiced their support.

                My prayer is that the war is short and that no innocent civilians are hurt. Most importantly I pray that all the American Soldiers come home safe.

                  I'm guessing that she is tired of touring and being famous and wants to break up. Why else would someone say something that would SURLEY PISS OFF their main fan base, hicks, who support America and everything it does, right or wrong.

                  I do think she was right to say that she is embarrassed to come from the same state as G.W. She should have said it months ago tho.

                  Did you ever wonder if Bush would be this fast at war if he DIDNT own tons of stock in the Texas oil companies that get their oil from OVER THERE?

                  Or is he just trying to be like dear old dad?
                  There are 2 types of people in the world...
                  Really stupid people who think they are smart
                  and
                  Really smart people who think they are smart.

                    i never liked bush and his ears. honestly people, he had been embarassing us from the time he nearly died over a pretzel. i never liked him cause my dad would always get into a fit over somthing like the kickapoo tribe in texas wanted a casino but bush never did crap about it.(when bush was the givenor of texas) then my dad would get started on how he ignores natives. but when bush went into the big office he had to give up his prejudice ways.

                    i agree with the dixie chicks on that. not really on anything else though. other people in the media do it all the time. they use the whole 1st ammendment thing and get awat with it. so what's the difference here?

                          They deserve to be banned, freakin' witch, :Yell you know freedom of speech is a good thing but is also a crab. The freedom can be use properly and can be abused by morons as Mains. What a dork-wad, so much for the Dixie Chicks, never heard 'em, and probably never will.

                            its funny when the sh!t hit the fan because of an abortion of war then people are like, "Why didn't our President do anything 'bout it?" Just another Adolf in the making, first its Iraq then its surrounding nations then its the world. Shesh, doesn't 9/11 mean anything to you, or was it just another day? The war is to prevent terrorism, not just our nation but other nations as well. The terror that has engulfed that region of the world. Plus were talking Mass Weapons here, honey, no cracker and soup arsenal, but the big stuff here. That kind of power in the hands of a dictator like him, with his ill position towards us, can only equal war baby, and thats to kick us off the field. The guy doesn't like our western lifestyle, and if we don't do nothing 'bout it we'll be bowing to his crazy A$$(anus). So I say keep the peace and go to war, of course, easy for mr to say 'cause I ain't there, but I would go to insure safety for the present and the future.

                              Heated debates are fine, but if you are going to start using cute "alternative" methods to spell out foul language then I'll just start editing your posts. Ba-dump-pum.

                              Keep in clean, folks. Don't come crying to me about censorship, grow up. This is not Jr. High anymore.
