    Of course they were right. They still have a career. Just lost the shit-for-brains crowd.

    Anyone that says its right for citizens of their own country going to a foreign country and telling those people that they are ashamed of the leader of your and their country needs to renounce their citizenship.

    If you don't like your elected official, complain at home, get out the vote to get him out of office or whatever, but when you talk shit to people outside the country, you're just wrong.

    Yes. Lying for your government and it's political leaders, even when they what they are doing is wrong and not in your country's best interest, is always the right and patriotic thing to do.

    Anyways, I thought the Dixie Chicks said what they said right there in America. It doesn't matter where on Earth you criticize your country, the rest of us are going to hear about it. There are those things called radio and television and the internet and we all have them. :eek:

    They said it in England. It was inappropriate.

    And your first paragraph is total bullshit. There is absolutely no fact in it whatsoever. Are you mad at the Clintons too?

    thats how we keep them honest.

    its like throwing a change up when the hitter is starting to cheat on your fastball.

    here in america, we have the right to criticize our government. it would be unamerica not to use that right.

    See nothing wrong with criticizing the W. anytime anyplace and she got it right the first time out. Never stopped listening.

    Right and wrong are always a matter of perspective.

    But I agree, the GW Bush administration created huge, perhaps insurmountable, problems for the United States.

    So everyone should have been cheering when Hitler invaded Poland.

    Godwin's law validated in the 10th reply. Is this a new record?

    Country is country. Not the most progressive. Dixie Chicks need to go into electronica/rock/pop /hiphop/ and maybe R&B.

    Yes, because freedom of speech is sooo un-American, especially when talking to furrinerz.

    Just brings out my fightin side.

    I can't even recall how many furrinerz I had to tell in my travels that I had nothing to do with the election of George W. Bush. I'm sure it probably saved my hide a few times, or at least guaranteed there wouldn't be some unwanted ingredient in my food.

    Once when i was in France during the Bush years the guy at the desk in the hotel told me to tell people i was Canadian, since I have a slight Texas accent I told them I was from southern Canada.

    During one of my trips to Brazil back in 2007, I remember befriending a few people standing in line at a club. When they found out my friend and I were from the United States, the look on their faces became one of concern. Immediately, I told them that neither one of us voted for Bush and everything went back to normal. I have similar stories in Jordan, Mexico, Portugal, Canada... the list goes on.

    I know many Conservatives don't like to hear these stories around here, but many of them really have no idea just how the Bush presidency has affected our image abroad.

    This is so very true. I have experienced this personally. Do you remember all the celebrations around the world when Obama won? It wasn't for him winning as much as it was for Bush finally leaving the Oval office.

    New York was so alive when Obama won the presidency in 2008, I even saw a cop stop someone who was smoking weed and asked for a hit. No joke. I was hosting an election party and as soon as the announcement was made, everyone was glowing. Car horns were honking everywhere. And all of the bars/clubs downtown were packed. Whether it be due to Bush/Cheney being through or the fact that Palin didn't make it to the White House... one thing was for certain. People in New York simply had enough and the election was one big, collective exhale.
