The point you may have missed, is those of us expressing views don't have to worry that it might effect our income or lifestyle. Even if we had a larger audience to present our views to, they would hardly carry the weight these paragons of virtue hope to accomplish by their popularity.
Like I've always stated, and has been stated by any reasonable conservative, if a conservative doesn't appreciate something...a song on the radio, or a TV show...we turn it off. A liberal wants it banned.
It's never enough for the liberal 'pop' stars to get their oscars, they have to express their love of some communist dictator, and then expect their 'loving' followers to continue to embrace them as being intelligent. In their stupidity, they don't even know who their audience is.
Excellant case in point were those ignorant Dixie Chics. Who did they think their audience and followers were? Guess what! We were the rednecks that destroyed their product as fast as we could find it. Hope they are as popular as they think they are with their current 'admirers'. (that probably shouldn't be plural)
PS I needed to edit this, so no one gets the idea I give a FRA about any of these celebrities losing their $$$ or followers. Couldn't care less! BUT...it's their whiney attitude that, in the case of the DC's, WE are causing their ruin. They are so completely void of intelligence, it makes you wonder how they had an audience to begin with.
Never said they don't have the right to their views/presenting them or that they're stupid/lack merit.
I questioned why others attach extra merit to their views simply because of their particular talent, which is totally unrelated. George Clooney is a good actor, imo. But should I/you consider his opinion on say, Darfur , particularly pertinent just because I liked Ocean's 11? :confused:
I'm doing that here and now. :D I could give my views to the dogs all day long and they'd just wag their tails ;-)Quote:
If you could present your views to a larger audience, wouldn’t you.
But it wouldn't make me think about my views/consider others' and hopefully cause others to do likewise.
It's a lot easier to be liberal with other people's money when you have plenty of your own. My guess is that before most of these entertainers, etc. became famous, they were more conservative in their thinking.
Toby Keith spoke out against the Dixies chicks. Seems like he is doing just fine and the girls got hammerd by ther followers. Must suck to be them.
It doesn’t look like they were hurt too bad for stating their opinion of Bush and the war. That one fan they have left must be buying a lot of music!
