Some Ditzy Twits Just Never Learn

Natalie Maines, from the country music band, “The Dixie Chicks” has done it again. She has opened her mouth and expressed yet another incredibly stupid and telling opinion about her character, or rather lack thereof. From a story found here, here is the latest lunacy to flow from her mouth:

“The entire country may disagree with me, but I don't understand the necessity for patriotism,” Maines resumes, through gritted teeth. “Why do you have to be a patriot? About what? This land is our land? Why? You can like where you live and like your life, but as for loving the whole country… I don't see why people care about patriotism.”

The first reaction to such claptrap is, “Hello! Is there anybody home? Is Ms. Maines totally incapable of thinking things through before she shoots off at the mouth?

Once you get past the stunned disbelief that someone could actually continue to pursue career suicide in such a fashion, you get to the gist of what her controversial words actually mean and indicate about what sort of person Ms. Maines actually is. She is apparently a person who enjoys the freedom to pursue her happiness in the career of her choice and enjoy the wealth and riches that come along with it. She enjoys the security of her freedom that her country provides her, security of her freedom paid for by countless fallen Americans in combat throughout its history, and not only does she not appreciate it, but, she also doesn’t see why anyone else should either.

Despite the total depravity and despicableness of her expressed vitriol for her country, it is her constitutional right to make such ridiculous statements. She does not, however, have the right to expect her musical career to go unharmed by making such anti-American statements. I would suggest that Ms. Maines, and the rest of "The Ditzy Twits" relocate to the Rock or Alternative Rock genre of music. She would then find herself in a group of like-minded peers. Maybe they could make an album with Neil Young. Or with those "American Idiots", Green Day. Who knows?

There is something about Hollywood stars and music entertainers. Some of them apparently have an over-inflated view of their own worth. Just because they can sing or act doesn’t mean that they are so much superior to other Americans that we should all be grateful when they grace us with their loony political statements.

To borrow from the lyrics of Lynrd Skynrd in their song “Sweet Home Alabama”, a country audience don’t need them [The Dixie Chicks] around anyhow. Ms. Maines doesn’t see any need for patriotism in America? Country music fans apparently don’t see any need for the Dixie Chicks, as they are about to demonstrate to Ms. Hardhead once again.

I would try and feel sorry for her, but I just can’t feel sorry for someone who is about to receive their just desserts.

She is only commenting on what you people have done to the word "Patriotic" which is to say that the new definition of this word now seems to stand for EVERYTHING that is contrary to the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. How dare you treat the freedoms we have had for 230 years like a present day popular vote!

Who is "you people"?

How am I equating patriotism with "EVERYTHING that is contrary to the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?"

How am I daring to "treat the freedoms we have had for 230 years like a present day popular vote!"

Nice try, but as usual liberals are more on form and less on substance. Please, if you can, provide something a little more than immature name calling.

Exactly what is your position?

Maines and her ilk are like the spoiled children of the "greatest genertion" who came of age in the 1960s. Having everything handed to them they squandered the inheritance they din't have to earn.

Maines doesn't have to pay for the freedom to be rich and shoot her mouth off. Thus she doesn't understand patriotism or its necessity.

As to "anonymous'" comments the fact that they were unwiling to identify themselves says all you need to know about them.
