    She's a prime example of why the term "dumb blonde" exists.

    Record labels need to drop them, radio stations need to refuse to play their songs, and people need to stop buying their records or going to their concerts.

    When she has no money and has to apply for welfare they should then turn her down and tell her they wil buy her a one way ticket to the middle east and they can have her.

    I think she is more critizing blindly being a patriot, without actually looking at we are doing.
    Yeah I would think so. I don't see why you would just not like people being patriots... :???:

    lol owned. You have to remember that this country was founded on the principles of free speech and she can voice her opinion on whatever the hell she wants even if it's against being a patriot, as dumb and hypocritical as it sounds.

    You guys need to chill out. Just because some citizens don't fit in the follow first-think later mentality you don't need to chastise them as unamerican. If its wrong to be extremely critical of government, then clearly some of you need to review the writings of John Locke, whose principles your country is founded on.

    Granted I don't neccessaril promote anti-patriotism, but her words were probably taken out of context. Patriotism is as much a concept that alienates as it is a concept that unites. Don't forget pre-WW2 Germany was extremely patriotic.

    Anyway, that's just one Canadian kid's opinion on the topic.

    She needs to be shot in the face. Nationalism isn't strictly an American thing etiher, I'm pretty sure most citizens have pride in where they come from.
    She's a singer in a band, not a political science major, but I'm sure what she's referring to is extreme nationalism and jingoism (what she referred to as "ultra-nationalism"), not simply wishing the best for your country. As for shooting people in the face for freely speaking their mind, perhaps you'd be better served if you moved to North Korea or China; our country is founded upon the protected right of free speech. Extreme nationalism is the sign of a country in decay and almost always leads to totalitarianism. Use your brain, chick-killer. Funny thing is, you have the V for Vendetta symbol representing you; did you root for the totalitarian state in that movie? :roll:

    It would be much easier for her to grab a US flag and start waving it around, in order to pander to the country music fans in this country, than it is to challenge the idealogy and direction this country is headed in. I, for one, respect her conviction and chutzpah; I'm sure it has cost them millions of dollars in record sales.

    Re: Dixie Chicks bash patriotism from overseas (there's a sh

    I hate the Patriots too.

    Tom Brady, Mike Vrabel, Corey Dillon...the whole bunch of 'em.

    j/k

    But honestly...while I don't agree at all with what the Dixie Chicks say or the way they say it, as American citizens, they do have the right to make these types of comments whether it be overseas or not.

    Personally, I just ignore them. I don't think politics and music go very well together at all anyway (kinda like football). They should just shut up and do what they do best, play their banjos and fiddles (you notice I didn't say sing? That's because I can't stand Natalie Maines' voice no matter what side of the political spectrum she stands on...uugghh).
    Even babies know the difference.
