    Books,films, music and so on.

    As an example.

    The films of John Wayne. Wayne was a conservative so would that deter you from watching his films.

    Bruce Springsteen - Do his political thoughts prevent you from enjoying his music ?

    Is Dickens too liberal for you ?

    Were you glad Tom Hanks died in Philadelphia ?

    Do you find older westerns difficult to watch when they skew history ?

    Do you laugh helplessly when you watch Mel Gibsons Patriot ?

    Is Gone With the Wind incredibly dated ?

    Does the religion or politics of the artist affect your enjoyment ?

    You know, for the longest time, 2 of my favorite rock and roll tunes were Great White Buffalo and Free For All by Ted Nugent.

    When Nugent went full blown crazy in his rabid support of all things conservative, I stopped listening to his music. But, then a couple of months later, I reviewed my feelings towards him, and although I can't stand him as a person, I still liked those 2 songs.

    Now? If I don't agree with the person, but still like the work they produce, I enjoy the thing I liked before, even if I have no use for the person anymore.

    Even though Mel Gibson is bat shit crazy, I still love the movie Braveheart.

    The only thing that I really have difficulty sitting through is I Love Lucy. I don't hate it; it is simply from a different era. Ya know, I am not espwaining chit. I also can't listen to Ted Nugent. That took a long time coming though. It's like he forgot to just shut up and play.

    I wont every listen to the Dizzy Chicks, Bruce Springbrain, and others like him/them, because they decided to put their politics before their careers, and showed how much they hate the US while reaping the millions of dollars that the US allowed them to amass. Goes with movies too..When you hit idiots in the wallet, eventually idiots will keep their politics to themselves..

    CNN.com - Dixie Chicks pulled from air after bashing Bush - Mar. 14, 2003

    What about Ted Nugent, Mel Gibson and Clint Eastwood? Those guys put politics before their careers as well. Oh wait.....................you only quit entertainers when they disagree with you. If their politics are aligned with yours, you love them.

    I'm a big fan of Punk Rock, and most of it leans left to far left.

    When i band I like plays one of their overly political songs I disagree with I just hum along and wait for the better ones.

    Same thing with Bruce, I'll take the political mush along with the good stuff, i just won't pay it any mind.

    Really? I hate the USA? Then why did I give 20 years of my adult life to service in the military? It sure as hell wasn't to get rich, I can assure you.
