This story is not the first example in which public dissent, once an honored freedom, is now met with organized oppression. In this case, a youth band wearing "inappropriate" tee shirts. Remember when the Keystone Cops gave Cindy Sheehan the bum's rush because she was wearing a shirt they disapproved of?
This is not 'keeping public order'. There was no disorder. Just a statement which some twisted mall managerette couldn't handle.

I suspect there are lots of stories ike this one out there. Recall what happened to the Dixie Chicks when they opened their mouths? Oh, and "Free Speech Zones" where dissenters are corraled out of sight so their "free" speech becomes meaningless?

As a people, we are becoming seriously lax about the defense of freedom.

What's worse, we are becoming seriously nutsoid about reducing it in reactionary ways.

Here's a thread to those who speak out, and get hit in the chops for it, in the home of the brave.

American "democracy" is exposing itself for the sham it's been ever since the founding fathers were in their graves. It's about money and power, and damn the common good.

They were being paid for their performance. The management have their rights also. Protest all you want, just don't expect me to automatically be a part of it through my patronage at the mall.

Was at a 5 act music benefit recently where the band leader (same city) did a anti-bush tirade at the end of their. The crowd had to be well over half left-leaning but the hush that fell over the crownd also resulted in him not selling one CD.

The average intelligent audience does not want political reflections cast on their entertainment.

Rent a hall or find a street corner and protest all you want. That allows choice.

....meant to comment on the Dixie Chicks. Amos, what is your problem with that scenario. They had their day in the Sun, on stage and no one stopped them. It was their gig and no one did one thing to prevent their 'freedom of speech'. Why are you suggesting that those who found disfavor with the Chicks actions; stopped buying CDs, many stations and DJs stopped playing their stuff, should have their 'freedom of speech' disallowed.

Cubs
On deck: Pirates at Cubs

May 1, 2006


Tonight: 7:05, Comcast SportsNet, 720-AM. Victor Santos (1-4, 6.48 ERA) vs. Sean Marshall (2-0, 4.22).

Tuesday: 1:20 p.m., Ch. 9, 720-AM. Zach Duke (1-2, 4.50) vs. Angel Guzman (0-0, 5.40).

The story line: The Cubs need to dominate the lowly Pirates before beginning a nine-game trip to Arizona, San Diego and San Francisco. The Cubs won two of three in Pittsburgh on April 14-16, but Duke beat them 2-1. Marshall and Santos also hooked up in that series, with Marshall an 11-6 winner. Guzman has to show more control of the strike zone in his second big-league start.

United 93 (R)
History written in the moment
It is not too soon for "United 93," because it is not a film that knows any time has passed since 9/11. The entire story, every detail, is told in the present tense. We know what they know when they know it, and nothing else. Nothing about Al Qaeda, nothing about Osama bin Laden, nothing about Afghanistan or Iraq, only events as they unfold. This is a masterful and heartbreaking film, and it does honor to the memory of the victims.

I agree with you, Ron.

These are really folk songs that the Boss is doing.

I am glad they are not being done so authentic and traditional.

getting these songs out in front of people again even if they do sound over-produced to the purists is much more meaningful than trying to get them out there in a style (such as braying and warbling) that will end up turning off people to thse fine songs.

Seems to me the worst aspect of the American national character surfaced during the Dixies' flap, when someone actually burned their CDs. If politics and music are independent items, then how come burning music is an appropriate response to a political statement?

The lizard brains didn't really do much harm, I guess, anymore than Martin is doing here with his subtle finesse.

When W and staff go on the road and have to stay in a hotel the standing rule they impose on the hotel is that all publicly visible TV screens (lobby etc.) must show FOX news network.

When Air Force 1 carries any reporters it is reported that only one TV show is ever broadcast. Can you guess what it is?

When speaking at college graduating ceremonies the standing order is that the University must first agree to EXPEL any student caught protesting against Bush at the event and never allow said student to graduate.

This regieme only needs to silence between 5 and 15% of protesters as well as any mention of the protest to be able to create an appearence of normalcy. This number game is similar to needing only a 30% approval rating to win the election since over one third of the people don;t vote and even if they did all one need do is disenfranchise or lose 5 to 15% of votes suspected of being oppositional.

Agreed, Wesley S. I went to 4 Graduations this year and saw various forms of protest; war, the entire government, etc. Orderly and no one booted out.

Amos, "If music and politics are indenpendent items......." , the Dixie Chicks did not have that view, so the opposing action was perhaps justified, eh?

And yet.........

Cards on the table I don't like George Bush. i didn't like him when he was signing death warrants with alacrity and apparent enthusiasm. When I heard his election campaigns had been paid for by the armaments industry. I thought you would be at war before too long.

And yet......

it is a time of war. other young men are putting their lives on the line to carry out the orders of your elected leaders.

both wars seemed an understandable reaction to 9/11. to an awful lot of people it seemed that there had to be some payback for pissing about with America.

and its traditional to express loyalty to a war leader.

Lessons learned

if you really think its worthwhile to protest. make it a meaningful, thoughtful, dignified protest - not a bloody tee shirt.
Start putting together the organisation that will ensure neither party picks someone like this again.

There comes a time when that is no longer in the best interests of the country and its people; indeed the world and its people. Now is such a time.

if you really think its worthwhile to protest. make it a meaningful, thoughtful, dignified protest

If we'd done it that way before we could still be in Viet Nam, wld.

There are plenty of orgs. which are carrying out protests which ARE thoughtful and meaningful; "dignified" is subjective. Many people have lost their dignity in lives of poverty, constant violence, and poor conditions because of this administration.

Nattering nabobs of nondiscrimination, this is not a thread about Popular Views of the Bush Administration.

This is a different thread. It is on a different subject, about a cultural degradation which is occurring widely and which undermines the vitality and flexibility and inherent strength of this country, and to which reactionary oppressors of open communication, like yourselves, are contributing by shouting for the suppression of dialogue.

To be able to see differences between things which are different is to gain new insight into the real and present world. Try it sometime.

If the supporters of "Shrub" ever try to supress all of the dissent they will have their work cut out for them.

It is probably not possible to "get the big picture".

However, early every morning I read the NY Times/Post, the Washington Post/Times, whatever new stuff the Times mag might have along with US News/World Report and every Liberals favorite, National Review.

Then I try to decide what might be transpiring. NO TV news for a year now, none, and stay away from idiots like Jerry Springer on Air America and Shaun Hannity.

Just a few weeks ago, I was marveling over the dramtic increase in my ability to detect addtional flavors in food stuffs. (Increased intensity) I first gave credit to being over the pangs of a bad marriage and elongated divorce. Then, I overheard someone say that they felt better since they stopped watching network news. (also local for me) Who knows? ( Think I will go with the latter) I have yet to have anyone really tell what benefits they derive from it. Includes CNN, FOX, MSNBC, etc.

I do use Slate and the other sources you mention, mostly because they strike me as articulate and intelligent. I also read the Post, the WSJ, the Christian Science Monitor, and excerpts via Google News from all over, including some of the most rabid right-wing gibberish you could possibly imagine. I am biased toward those voices which use creative rhetoric rather than the crude and barbarian Slander Direct as a means of expressing their perspective. Friedman, Dowd and their fellows at the NY Times meet this criterion of creative communication a lot more than, say, Limbaugh or Hannidy do.

There are certain things about conservatism that I respect and appreciate, when it is practiced, but the ranting reactionary version of imperialism that is voiced by some characters in the pundit world is not of that stamp.

I prefer people who communicate thought; for example, Doug R and Bearded Bruce often make that effort.

By the way, President Bush recently said something I found genyuinely funny at the Press awards conference he went to. He said he was feeling greatly relieved, because he had survived the White House shake-up. I think this is the first time I ever laughed with him instead of at him.

The motivation, Bruce, in this incident, was to suppress an expression of disagreement with Bush.

There's no question that wearing a teeshirt the has an interdiction symbol around the President;'s face is a form of dissent with the current administration.

However, I do not see you going around suppressing dissent, so obviously it is not the case that "any and all Bushites suppress dissent". However, the pattern of Bushites suppressing dissent has recurred often enough to make it a valid topic, imho.

Well, being a Canadian living in the Maritimes I can be honest and say I have been to none ... except for a few Bluegrass festivals and our weekly jams... that's about as close to good 'ol country I get here. Bluegrass is totally void of politics and negative shit .. which is one of the reasons I like it.

But when you stated (my interpation anyway) that country music is all about rednecks kicking Arab butt and all, I thought of Willie Nelson, Wayland jennings, The Dixies Chicks and Steve Earl.

And you know why that music is popular? It is because it is the way a lot of people really feel.

The dixie Chicks still get plenty of airplay and I am glad. they are great singers and musicians.

And bobert, Waylon did a great patriotic tribute in a song called "America." You should listen to it sometime instead of trying to put words in a dead man's mouth like a moron.

Well, now, Martin is absolutely right. Going through a day being positive is far better than whining and being negative. I am all for that.

'Course, being positive about destroying things is kinda weird. And being negative about insane policies is probably not, itself, negative, if you see what I mean.

But hell, that's not the situation here, is it? Hell, we got us a good boy in the saddle, the buck is up, the troubles are all in furrin places, and we got the best damn indigenous music on the planet which is full of good vibes.

So I guess, hell, things ain't so bad.

"Bushites Suppress Dissent in America"

Here in Mudville, we just have the usual distraction. like the ever dfistracting Martin "the distractor" Gibson with yet aother of his little mindless trickery....

This is yet another way that Bushites suppress dissent... They try trivialize it...

Won't work, Marty... Too many folks are on to you, yer games and yer guy...

Sure .... I'll invite anyone who wants to live a more positive life here ... especially in Maritime Canada. But specifically ones who grumble hourly about the suppressive government of Bush.

Hell, who in their right mind wants to live in the U.S. now.
