Well, when some of your politicians call the President a moron, what do you expect, like you said. However the news media seems to be focusing more on the French, then Canada.

Now, I suggest we do as Roger says, and drop the polictical discussion before we are all at each others throats.

I don't think it has to do with being a Republican or a Democrat, frankly. I think it has to do with being an American (and in saying that, I'm not saying Americans are superior or inferior to ANYbody)and supporting your president in times of trial. That doesn't necessarily mean agreeing with every decision or policy. That means supporting your president, whomEVER he is.

I'm done with the Chicks - permanently.

If you go to the CW boards, watch them talk about the Chicks now, if you thought them ripping Shania was bad. It's like the Chicks were dropped into a shark tank.

26 Canadians died on Sept 11th,we housed ,fed 40 thousand AMERICANS WHEN the plans could not fly and we had 4 Canadian troops killed in the Afgan war.I have not forgotten SEPT 11TH.
I AM STILL AGAINST THIS WAR.DISAGREEING WITH ,THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, DOES NOT MAKE ME, anti American.Sorry for the rant.


I agree. I'm not for the war, but I think there should be consequences when anyone violates a treaty or resolution. especially one that was agreed upon when it was written.
People need to be held accountable for that . For instance, you can't have laws work if you keep saying, "well, next time we'll put you in jail" then next time comes, and you say, Ok, this is the last time, next time we put you in jail. And it goes on and on without enforcement, when do you put your foot down and and give out the consequences of bad action. Personablity I think we should let Europe and the middle east deal with it. When it gets out of hand, and things get really bad, don't call us for help, Our phone number has been changed!

From DC with respect to statements being reported in British media

From the Dixie Chicks

"We've been overseas for several weeks and have been reading and following the news accounts of our governments' position. The anti-American sentiment that has unfolded here is astounding. While we support our troops, there is nothing more frightening than the notion of going to war with Iraq and the prospect of all the innocent lives that will be lost."

Maines further stated, "I feel the President is ignoring the opinions of many in the U.S. and alienating the rest of the world. My comments were made in frustration and one of the privileges of being an American is you are free to voice your own point of view."

At least they will get off Shania's back for awhile.
That sucking sound we hear is their career going out the window.
Wait until you see "Country Weekly" ohch.

i think country weekly is what cbspock is talking about.

i just read what she actually said. and whoo, is it ever interesting. LOL

"Just so you know," says singer Natalie Maines, "we're ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas." It gets the audience cheering -- at a time when country stars are rushing to release pro-war anthems, this is practically punk rock.

Cheyenne, I agree with everything you said.

My brother, who is a police officer, said it like this: "If I see a drunk driver, I don't sit there and watch him/her swerve off the road, almost hit another car, and wait for a wreck. I have an obligation to pull him/her over in order to save not only his/her life, but the lives of others. The threat of danger is there, and I have to stop it before something horrible happens."

That's my take on it, too.

Also, I've been done with the Chicks for a while now, too. I, personally, like my celebrities more reserved and to have a greater self-respect and a greater respect for others.

Just my two cents; I'm dropping it now, like Roger said.

Take care!
Much Love,
Jill
