-sigh-
As usual, you dont know of which you speak.
I would daresay I have forgotten more about Dixieland, swing, big band, etc, than you will ever know.

I think Hank Williams Jr. is an a**hole for a variety of reasons, but I did not find his comments re Obama/Boehner playing golf particularly offensive. More much ado about nothing...

You can watch or not watch whatever you damn please - doesn't matter to me.

Anyone that compares Obama to Hitler is a raving loon.

Dislike the man, hate his policies, disagree with him, but comparing him to Hitler is just friggin' stupid.

I certainly am not a libeal. But ;yes you ca do that;just has they can fire hank because they pay the to represent them. It has nothig to do with governamnt sayig watch you can watch or the terms of his contract with them.Really looks like ole Hank'd mputh did to him what the Dixie Chicks mouths did to them.His song reminds me of the Chiks wear those T-0shirts ;just put them on the D list and people move on.

How is it that all the Hollywood mouth breathers when bashing Bush did not lose their jobs? The Dixie Chicks are about as useful as fools can be and the Baldwin brothers? What a waste of DNA. Just shows in a bright light the hypocrisy of the new McCarthy's.

The people on Fox and Friends gave him two chances and to clean up his comment, but his hatred for Obama led him to just dig the hole deeper. In his view Hitler and Obama are the enemy and Boehner and Netanyahu are the good guys.

TV personalities and hollywood types called Bush and Reagan both Hitler and nothing came of it.
this i'm not so sure about. altho it's easy to find various nameless protesters slapping hitler mustaches on the previous presidents i can't find an instance of any "TV personalities and hollywood types" making the direct comparison before obama. if there is one i'd love to see it.

the part that struck me as ignorant was his insistence that there should be no compromise between the parties. we are a nation of 300+ million conflicting opinions. ideally beneficial compromise is exactly what our reps should be doing.



for the music lovers: check out Hank III, son of Jr and grandson of Sr. he has a dual persona musically. half his work is country ( more closely related to his grandpappy, he doesn't seem to be a fan of his dad ) the other half is metal/punk. good stuff for those with broad musical tastes.
