Yeah, "that's it." She even apologized afterward. ;)
March 15, 2003, 06:28 PM
I've been boycotting that stuff for years!:p
March 15, 2003, 06:46 PM
Just like the old cliche, "You can't unring a bell" her comments & true feelings hve been expressed. The only reason she apologized was because her record company realized stations across the country were pulling their music from rotation.
I bet she's sorry now! :fire:

Amazing how all those entertainers will say crap like that in Europe but they won't say it here.
March 15, 2003, 07:20 PM
While this was an incredibly stupid thing to say, I'm hardpressed to boycott good music, just because someone who sings it happens to be an uncomparable moron.
Natalie didn't say she disagreed with Bush's foreign policy. She didn't state her reasons for disliking the administration. She went onstage, and in an obsequious effort to ingratiate herself to the pathetic socialists of the People's Republic of Europe, she squeaked that she was ashamed Bush was from Texas. It's an incredibly inane thing to say, as I'm sure there are plenty of *******s who hail from Texas. But everyone is entitled to their opinion, no matter how ignorant.
Are we going to boycott every celebrity for being an ignoramus? Then we might as well stay home and bang on some pots and pans for entertainment, because you'll be hard pressed to find anyone with half a brain in the entertainment industry. :scrutiny:

Yup, if you aren't FOR the Revolution, you are AGAINST the Revolution......BANG. America, the happy little fascicst state. Oh ya, with peace and liberty and freedom of speech.

I'm not making excuses for her actions. I've fully stated she's a complete moron, and her half-assed apology was an attempt to save record sales as opposed to express remorse for her ridiculous actions. I don't find her actions inexcusable, just inexcusably stupid.
You may take it more seriously than I do, but I think we basically agree. My point is simply that she's entitled to her opinion. She's also entitled to act like a bonehead whenver and wherever she wants. I just have a hard time giving up good music simply because the one singing it happens to be a cross-eyed dullard. :cool:

I won't be buying any of their stuff. I wouldn't have anyway, I don't care for them. But I won't be calling radio stations in support of a boycott. They have a right to free speech, even if they're wrong.
March 15, 2003, 08:53 PM
As do Alec and Sean and Jeannine and Barbie, etc. And this propensity to abuse their status as celebrities when exercising that free speech has left me so disgusted that they lose all value as entertainers. Add the Dixie Chicks to the :barf: list.
I won't be supporting them and will switch stations if they're playing, but I won't ask a radio station to boycott them just because one idiot opened her mouth and exposed her stupidity.

Ya know folks, some lessons have to be learned "the hard way".
March 15, 2003, 09:10 PM
from what i understand the band was met in europe w/ a strong anti-US feeling and made some comments that were not supportive of our CIC.
the statements were retracted, so what, when they got back to the US.
most of the time thier main objective is to sell t-shirts and CD's at the concert. they could care less about the thousands of GI's sitting in some dusty *** tent on the border of iraq listning to thier music on a walkman that some one sent them.
March 15, 2003, 09:11 PM
I do like thier music, listen to country all the time, but never have & never will buy thiers or any one elses, Why buy the cow when you can get the milk free? Radio is free ,but then so is TV I don't spend my money on movies either. I use it to buy more ammo so I can shoot more!:D
I did write them out of my will though.

America, the happy little fascicst state. Oh ya, with peace and liberty and freedom of speech.
How in the heck is choosing not to buy a person's product "fascism"? It sounds about as free and far away from oppressive, centralized control as freedom can get.
If her president chose to give her an acid bath, rape her bandmates and kill her children in front of her for real or perceived statements against him, that would be fascism. Oh yeah, that's what George Bush is trying to stop.:rolleyes:

For all of you who are crying that "they're entitled to their opinon", I couldn't agree more.
But, freedom of expression likewise affords me the opportunity to voice MY opinion by refusing to patronize their music and to encourage others to do the same.
If you agree, welcome aboard. If you don't I couldn't care less...
March 15, 2003, 11:44 PM
I can't boycott them, I never listened to their "music" anyway.
