Like YOU have ANY fucking credibility left, you ill-tempered, sanctimonious piece of shit.
This is Jerry Falwell I'm talking about here, who, let's face it, can't get his face in the news anymore unless he opens his mouth and says something... Well... MORONIC (remember the "we deserved this" comment on 9/12?) So he sees an opportunity to show just how American he really is by bashing the Dixie Chicks.
Look, again I say, NO ONE HAS BASHED OUR COUNTRY OR OUR TROOPS. But NOW you're un-American for voicing your disapproval of a decision of a President and his cabinet that DID NOT EVEN GET A MAJORITY OF THE DAMNED VOTE?!?!
Look, where were all you Un-American hate spewers when Bill Clinton was being called every damned name in the book and barely even being supported by his OWN party? WHERE THE FUCK WERE YOU THEN?!?!?! Oh, that's right, YOU WERE LEADING THE HATE SPEWING!
So some asshat here in New York sued John Fogerty for $5 million, claiming he lost a signifigant amount of hearing in his left ear due to "excessive noise" at the show.
You're suing John-FUCKING-Fogerty? The man who walked away from his OWN songs because his fucktard bandmates and brother screwed him royally? Who was sued for plagarizing? HIMSELF? AND HE BEAT THE RAP?
Dude, pick on another rock star for this bullshit.
Look folks. I think this has all gotten WAY out of friggin' line.
People are BOYCOTTING the Dixie Chicks for speaking their mind. Michael Moore gets visciously booed by about 20 people for speaking his mind. Now fans walk out of a Pearl Jam concert in Denver last night because Eddie Vedder took a Bush mask and put it on his mic stand to perform the song "Bushleaguer"
Which is anti-Bush to begin with.
"He's not a leader, he's a Texas Leaguer."
"Born on third, thinks he got a triple."
So Eddie Vedder makes a statement. People took offense and walked out. Fine. Everyone is in their public rights to do both.
But why does this become a news story?
Why is the fucking media so frigging "Toe the damned line, public!" on this war which has opponents EVERYWHERE.
Why does this become "news"?
Now there will be a public backlash against the Chicks, Moore and Pearl Jam. All because the media thinks this is newsworthy.
You know, I've gotten to the point where I just don't know who the fuck to trust with news anymore. I mean, you actually have these news channels saying in their OWN advertising, "We don't tell you WHAT to think, we just give you all the options so you can make up your OWN mind."
Something my friend Rob told me rings AWFULLY true here. "You can't make a documentary without slanting it to your own agenda. The second you start filming, you're not telling the truth anymore."
He told me thes when I mentioned that someone we know was not the biggest fan of Michael Moore because he slants everything to the direction HE wants it to be.
Well, that may be, but he's still saying something that NEEDS to be said.
But my point is, I don't think ANY news source on American TV these days is being TRULY objective.
I think I'm gonna start getting my news from The Onion or something.
Oh, and BTW, I saw this ad posted on a wall at Port Authority.
file under: not just another stupid white man
MICHAEL MOORE for President!
Thank you, Michael Moore, for defying the Hollywood establishment and revealling to the US and the rest of the world the truth about George Bush and his criminal war on Iraq. Long live free speech!
Okay, walking from Port Authority to the Subway station at 42nd and 7th today, I saw a disturbing advertisement. Two actually, but both from CMT. Country Music Television.
Now, let me preface this by saying I actually LIKE country music. It is not my favorite, but I DO enjoy it. I especially like: Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Kenny Rogers, Travis Tritt, Jerry Reed, Randy Travis, Dolly Parton, Faith Hill, Shania Twain & The Dixie Chicks.
I have never before had a problem with CMT. Hell, I even watch it occasionally.
But these ads...
Well, here's one:
Dixie Chicks: 27
Okay... FIRST of all, I have ONE tattoo, the Yankees interlocking "N.Y." on my left arm. It's probably about four square inches. It took 45 minutes to do, from outlining to coloring.
I would BET that mine small tat took longer and covers more body space than all 27 of the Chicks.
They have birds feet tattooed on their feet. Nine each, one for every goal they've accomplished. This is the equivalent of getting a small rose tattoed on your foot.
Let ALONE that you're comparing 27 tattoos among three girls to 8 tattoos on one guy. Individually, they each only outnumber him by one. In actually body space covered, they can't TOUCH him.
The second one:
Number One Hits:
Michael Jackson: 12
Alan Jackson: 20
And this is why I say FUCK CMT.
You backwards-assed podunk assholes are gonna MAKE me defend that freakish pedophile, Michale Jackson.
You rednecked asshats.
Michael Jackson has had 12 OVERALL SALES #1's. ALAN Jackson has had 20 COUNTRY CHART ONLY #1 hits.
