    Your post is Epic Fail.

    Broadcast networks didn't censor the dixie chicks, they made a good business decision by not running their crap ad/movie. Hardly McCarthyism.

    Heh, rereading and knowing you're intent now, I see what you were getting at Harshaw.

    My apologizes. Suggestion for you. Combine this.

    Smiley's help out with indicating sarcasm on this great series of tubes.

    I didn't know that the government forbid the Dixie Chicks from speaking out or selling their "stuff". When did this happen?

    Barking up the wrong tree, guys. It may not have been clear from the initial post, but it should be by now.

    No problem, as has already been pointed out, a wink or a smile can go along way in regard to intent.

    Bizarro.

    These people put their opinions out in the free market, and that market reacted.
    Nothing more.
    No government forced them to speak or told them not to speak.

    If you want to blame anyone blame the Dixie Chicks and/or the lefty Manhattanites and the Malibu crowd for not buying their tickets and eating their feces.

    They obviously did not know or understand their market.
    Or their market mistook them for Patriotic Americans until proven otherwise.
    That's life.

    The moral of the story?
    Know your audience.
    Sometimes political activism can sink a career.
    Sometimes a choice must be made... politics or (in this instance) music... or the choice may be made for you.

    Well, if you want to add one in for me, that would be fine, because I can't edit it now. People don't seem to be able to read past that post, so it might be a good idea.

    Look at the post times. When I was writing my post, yours was the last post in the thread at #3.

    8 posts popped within minutes of each other. It got vicious quick on you.

    It's all good now.

    It's a sad state of affairs when posts like yours are taken seriously rather than sarcastically... such is the opposition... they've taken lunacy to the point of belief and policy.

    Apologies.
