    This should open up a can of worms but I just saw one of their old videos on CMT and it made me wonder what they were up to now.

    There was a time I liked the Dixie Chicks but after their dumb assed comments about President Bush they fell from grace with me. Fuck 'em. All entertainers should leave politics out of their public voice and stick to being entertainers. I pay to see them perform - not to listen to their political spin.

    Sooooo........ entertainers don't have the right to free speech in public? :eusa_eh:
    Doesn't sound like you BBD.
    Now considering their genre, of which the majority of their consumers are probably the most patriotic feeling people in the nation, it was not a wise move on Natilie's part and given the location........ That was really stupid.

    Having free speech is awesome, knowing when not to exercise it... priceless. :dunno:

    I take it you didn't like Ronald Reagan! After all he was an entertainer.

    If you're referencing the Natalie instigated "war" with Toby, Toby's song did not say what Natalie claimed it did and while she continued to openly "prosecute" her war Toby did the right thing and turned his back on her and left her to her "strident shrieking".

    Sooooo....... BBD doesn't have the right to not patronize entertainers who exploit a captive audience to soapbox about politics?

    They still exist? I thought they vanished in a puff of irrelevancy.
