    If you are one of the people that fell for the Dixie Chicks "apology" on TV a while back, you should read the July 21st issue of PEOPLE magazine. There is a small paragraph on page 53 that sums up their idiocy. It seems that they dedicated a song called Truth #2 to none other than Michael "the moron" Moore who was sitting in the audience during a recent Madison Square Garden concert. Yes, The same booger eating moron that made the Bowling for Columbine debacle. I felt they stabbed this ole bluegrass lovin boy in the back, and I'll never forgive the Bagdad Broads. This seals the deal!!!!!!!!!! :fire:

    Oh yeah, rock & roll is such a bastion of conservative, flag waving gunlovers!! Besides they are the exception to the country music scene. Long live Toby Keith.;)

    I remember being in the checkout line at the grocery store and seeing that Toby Keith and the Dixie Twits are having some sort of feud. God bless any person who stands for our rights.

    What difference does their politics make? The Dixie Chicks seem to have been recruited into the ranks of DNC operatives. They are also involved with Rock the Vote although I doubt you'll see any of their videos on MTV. If they want to trade CD sales for political goodwill from the liberal wing of the Democratic Party, that's their business. Alienating ones core fans by making irrelevant political statements doesn't seem like good business sense to me, but then, I'm not their manager.....

    The Ditzie Chicks should shut the hell up if they don't want to alienate their fan base, although it might be too late for that. I can't believe that their concert tour has been going as well as it has. Does anyone know how their sales are doing? I used to like their music, but now I just can't listen to it. I had two of their CDs which have been used as targets. I never thought someone's politics would make me stop liking their music, but theirs did.

    Toby Keith Rules.

    Oh, you mean like Ted Nugent fans?

    Guess I'll start listening to Johnny Cash again, he's got lots to say about resonsible firearms use. :neener:

    Could we perhaps criticise their opinion and not them? I perceive people to be separate from their actions/opinions, and I find it somewhat offensive some of the statements aimed at them. So far no one has wished them harm yet, but that may be about to begin.... My point is, what if the members of the band were a part of your family? Surely you have family members who do not share your opinions on political issues. Do you go on and castrate them?

    I don't care two whits about their politics.

    They sing great - very talented - incredible harmonizing.

    And as long as they keep their weight off - they are hot !!

    Smashed their cd's and threw them out. Won't be buying anything they have to sell. That's just me though. I won't buy lefty musicians music. There are other country artists who are evry bit as good or better. I'll be spending more on their music! The ditzy chicks can take mike moore and go to hell! Well, that's my .02 cents on that!

    I wouldn't castrate them, I just wouldn't listen to their music. Their opinions are PART of them. For example, Jane Fonda? They have every right to say or do whatever the hell they want, but I have the right to now buy their music or watch their films.

    I was referring to the question, "What if a famly member...etc,etc" Still, that is a disturbing picture. You Yankees just don't get it go. You haven't lived until you've kissed your cousin. :neener: (KIDDING!)

    In regards to DrPsycho's comments, the real issue is that celebrities are in a position to use their fame to support various causes. If we patronize them by renting/buying their movies, or purchasing their music, then we subsidize any activities that they engage in, whether it's buying a Bentley, or contributing time and money to some cause. An individual is entitled to say what they will, but I cannot in good faith support some celebrity with my hard-earned dollars who will then use those same dollars to deprive me of my rights or my property. Needless to say, this is NOT the same thing as having a relative or acquaintance who has sharply differing views from yourself, unless they happen to be one of the celebrities we're discussing. Familial ties aren't the issue here. Does all of this mean that I must make decisions about the worthiness of my entertainment choices? Absolutely, but that's part of being responsible and making your choices known in the marketplace.

    FWIW,

    I've noticed this theme here is pretty consistent. The "they aren't one of us, BURN THEM!" attitude. Geez, people, lighten up. So they disagree. I disagree with VPC and the Brady Bunch as much as anyone. But any time any celebrity voices that they don't like guns, all of a sudden a witch hunt is on. Look, people are allowed to think differently than you. Its what makes the world go 'round.

    The manner by which they have expressed their opinions is repugnant and is as worthy of criticism as the opinions themselves. The "FU TK" (FU Toby Keith) is a good example. So is making anti-war comments to a foreign audience when a war is in progress.

    Lets see now, members of Aerosmith (coolest band in all of R&R) have CCWs, and Kid Rock slings a six-gun like a pro.

    My buddy went to their recent concert in Dallas, TX because his gf wanted to go. He got upset and got up in the middle of the concert because the short one with the big mouth started yapping her trap about taking back her apology.

    My other friends and I got 4 tickets for the concert here in Houston but we decided not to go...nor did we sell the tickets. If you see 4 empty seats, that was us. :D

    People are free to say what they wish, and espouse what positions they believe in. That is called freedom of speech. People are allowed to call these people flaming idiots. That is also called freedom of speech. People are free to refuse to patronize venues, purchase products, and support those persons who espouse views different from their own. The media calls this 'blacklisting'. That is actually called 'freedom of association'. Seems simple to me.

    I hope we're not going to start looking to RNR "artists" as role models. My experience in about 7 years working in theater is that those are, in general, some of the sickest humans on the planet.

    I think I'll pop in the Dixie Chicks CD and clean a rifle or two.

    Let's all go find something more productive to do than worry about what opinions any musicians hold on any topic, shall we? Your bathroom could use some cleaning, for starters. When was the last time you dusted? Checked your tire pressure lately? Now might be a good time to mow the lawn.
    The day you need Toby Keith, Ted Nugent, the Dixie Chicks, Barbra Streisand or any celebrity to validate your opinions or you actually get upset about theirs is the day you should admit "I have no life."

    I only get upset because someone will actually take them seriously.

    If you have to look to someone in the entertainment industry or sports figures as role models, then you have some serious challenges to your core values.:scrutiny:
    Entertainers and sports figures are there to entertain us, it's just a job nothing more, nothing less. Their lives aren't real compared with most of us and many have managed to screw those up. To put these people in a position of being role models based on their fame or job performance is misplaced. :rolleyes:

    So no thanks. I would prefer to spend an afternoon with a Jeff Cooper, a Joe Foss, my grandparents or any number of Athabascan elders any day.
