    To me this goes back to the Dixie Chicks thing. There is nothing wrong with not playing them, but seriously, what the ****? They are entertainers. I don't care what a musician thinks about politics, that is not why I listen to them. It's the same thing as my not caring who politicians sleep with...it is irrelevant to what I want out of politicians, which is good politics. What I want out of musicians is good music, and I could care less who they think is like Hitler.

    What's interesting to me is this kind of blowback seems to affect country music more than other music.

    The words "country" and "music" do not belong together.

    Maybe back in the old days with guys like Johnny Cash the two words could be side-by-side. Now country is just about who can sing with the most country twang and talk about the most redneck topics.

    I saw what he said and I don't for one minute think he called Obama Hitler. He was only pointing out how ridiculous he thought it was for the two of them to be meeting and playing golf.

    Because country music is non-PC.

    Why is it ridiculous for two people to play golf while they negotiate? It is used in every other profession when people want to get together and talk business. Let's call a spade a spade here, these are two professionals with two different view points who met together over a sport to talk politics. What is wrong with that? It is not like they went and saw a romantic comedy together. If Obama and Boehner go see "27 Dresses", give me a call then.

    All I can say is that you can take the boy out of the trailer, but you can't take the trailer out of the boy.

    Hank Williams' freedom of speech rights were NOT violated. The 1st Amendment protects that freedom from against the government, not a private company.
