I know better than to get into politcal discussions. I just decided to open the can of worms and see how many crawl out

I am a firm believer in freedom of speech, so the Dixie Chicks can voice thier opinion however they want. More power to them.

But if they are going to go to other countries and talk smack about the USA, then they can stay there

If I had owned a Dixie Chick album I would have thrown it in the street.

I remember WAYYYYYYYYY BACK

There was a BIG uproar with the Beetles back in the 60's....I remember my Aunt throwing all her 45's into the fireplace about something one of them said. Can't remember what it was (I was born in '60).....maybe a more worldly (and older) voice can refresh my memory.........

The prominent radio stations here in Houston have "pulled the plug" on the Dixie Ding-a-lings songs.......we'll see how long that lasts...

One of their songs (a personal favorite) comes to mind over this issue........ "SIN WAGON"

Shame on THEM.......I'm embarrassed THEY are from Texas. Hope they do real well on their new tour. Bet the scalpers are hating life right about now !

Sorry, Mark......and the rest of RR that think my next statement is out of line. Bitches: get a villa in France. You've made PLENTY here already. And won't get any more of mine!

John Lennon said that the Beatles were 'Bigger than God', that was why the fans started burning the records.

Not old, just well read, honest!

i agree...
but....

why does the response have to be to throw away or burn or whatever something that you already have?

i suppose the idea is to avoid buying cd´s or going to concerts or anything you have not paid for already. if you have the cd´s already that money has gone to them already, so why throw them away? at that stage the only one loosing something is the person getting rid of the article.

this is the same point this o´reilly guy makes in FOX about boycotting french products versus dumping all your champagne and wines down the drain... just drink them when you want to but buy something else the next time...

Who Cares!

I have a few words about Bush to! I actually think she put it in such a nice way.Everyone hated Clinton, even though all he was guilty of was having extra staff under the table(desk ) but he didn't take us into war.Seems to be the whole Bush family has a problem with the east, you think?I'm keeping my CD!

Nobody has forgotten.

We should have retaliated that instant.I think the only problem was nobody actually knew who it was.If it wasn't for the UN we probably would have destroyed there whole country.We need to get this done and over with so that maybe our economy will rebound.I have always wondered if in fact this wasn't a financial stunt?Think about it, if the american dollar falls, who will benefit?I hate politics, lets go fly...

Here is the problem when ignorant people speak out about issues they haven't the slightest idea about. Clinton didn't take us to war? Did you forget the Bosnia-Serbian war from 1992 to 1995, or how about Kosovo in 1999? Where were the Hollywood idiots when Clinton supported these movements? I never saw those ignorat bitches - Jessica Lange, or Susan Sarandon speak out against him then!
These half-wit actors and performers think they have a voice when it comes to politics - I say just keep doing your cocaine, guzzule your alcohol, make your millions, and shut your mouth. Or in Natalie Maines case, keep eating fat ass.

This is why this crap does not belong on​RunRyder!

Fetus I do remember those but the factthey were no real wars nore were they in the Middle East.This is another thing I hate when a person fresh from the border crawls into America thinking he knows the entire American Political System.I am going to sum the WHOLE thing up, wheather or not people want to hear it but the reason why several other countries hate us is because WE SELL ARMS TO FOREIGN COUNTRIES.So what happens if we sell our technology (weaponry) to a country that has been fighting against another country for hundreds of years?It causes an imbalance of power.Now you have one far more advanced than the other and destroying another country.Can you imagine loving a country like America and wanting to come here just to have an enemy walk into your house and kill your family with a bomb that says MADE IN AMERICA?Most of these countries were fighting with old weaponry from the Cold War.Once a country gets a taste of avanced power it's only natural to want more power so they try to develop there own mass killing weapons, whish is usually Bio because they are the easiest.If we would have left well enough alone and didn't replace there slingshots with a bazooka, we wouldn't have half the problems we have now.Are government is corrupt and WE as US Citezens need to take control or I can see in the UN turning against us because we are becoming a Bully.I love America and what it has to offer, I was born and raised right were I am now but I don't have to like our government nore do I have to listen to politics strummed up by a person who crawls back and forth over our border.We need to keep this CRAP off RunRyder (our safe haven) or we will wind up with a against our selves.Go ahead and say what you want I will no longer reply to this junk..

Fresh from the border with an opinion? Forget the opinion, I just hate the fact that our borders are being overrun with illegals. But hey, that's a whole other can of worms! Texas will soon be back to Tejas if it continues.

I just gotta say I'm glad we're free to voice our opinions... let's keep it that way shall we?

I can understand why the French don't want the US to beat up on Iraq. After all in the 70's the French were getting 70 million a year to help Saddam build a nuclear reactor. Saddam is thier buddy. Thank God Israel bombed that thing (the reactor).

After all why does Iraq need a reactor? for energy?

Not much into the political stuff... but if they're that displeased with our Pres... then move to a different country!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm sure if Moscow, Paris, etc.. were attacked, then they'd be mad as H-LL too, and looking to kick the crap out of their enemies as well.. but then again, it was our country that was attacked, not theirs
