CHICKS IN GUN SIGHTS
Every once in awhile this old catfish comes across word of the Dixie Chicks and their continuing troubles caused by one’s belief in practicing “freedom of speech”. Their punishment is endless even though every advancing day proves anyone's anti-Bush sentiment to be justified. Everyone realizes that country music fans (mostly uneducated white males) are also Bush’s chief fan base (not counting the wealthy) and, with those types, freedom of speech is much talked about but not much practiced in the act itself unless, of course, it’s their own right to uniformed spewing. O—of course—and they charge hard for their right to own guns, but, being uneducated, they don’t like to protect the rights of speech of people who, unlike them, can walk, chew gum and reason all at the same time. In fact, they probably want their guns to shoot down those who practice free speech which doesn't agree with their ideas. Their vindictiveness is boundless. And Dennis Miller doesn’t think these guys are fascists!
IN THE SCHEME OF THINGS
Our president of the bushmen, when you take in the whole scheme of things, because of his religious fanaticism, probably has more in common with Islamic fundamentalists than he does with the modern peoples of America, Canada, South America, Russia, China, Japan, and eastern and western Europe. In his foreign policy, he’s also psychologically closer to the WWII Japanese and German Imperialists than with most Americans other than our own precious fundamentalists.
O! OF COURSE!
Get this header for short piece in the Spokesman Review on July 21, 2004: “US tells Sudan to end violence”.
“Yeah, right,” I can hear the Sudanese government saying.
