Oh yeah, I know my first thought when I found out about 9/11, it wasn't "Shit the poor victims familys" it was "YEAH MAN LETS KICK SOME TERRORIST ASS CUZ THATS THE AMERICAN WAY!!1"

I have to disagree with country just being pop with steel guitars. I'll admit that country isn't what it used to be anymore. That's all because like everything else in music it has evolved throughout time. Every artist that comes along will always have differnt influences than the next person. And through those influences the the person will find their sound. It's not just going to be just straight country anymore. Which is sad in a way but well thats just how it is.
I don't see much difference between all the modern country artists i've heard and some of the less hip-hop pop/dance pop artists i've heard. Other then theirs a steel guitar thrown in or something like that.

Also from the first person who responded to my post. Carrie Underwood is not manufactured trash. First off this girl has raw singing talent. No training whatsoever. By the way just to be clear Rascal Flatts is country. I'm sick of people saying that their "Western Pop". That's not even a genre. I'll even settle for Country/Rock or Contemporary Country.
Oh yeah? Which is why he sounds like a bland soft rock artists made for parents and yes, she is manufactured trash, tons of people are fantastic singers it doesn't make them good musicians.

andyman, I agree I think Carrie Underwood is a great singer, she has a great voice but her music's not that good. I respect your opinion, but IMO, only barbaric idiots were looking for anything other than a peaceful agreement. People who are very well informed on the other hand knew that it was a very minor attempt at payback for all the countries we've went in and bombed over the years. And 9/11 was a pretty small scale attack compared to some of our atrocities overseas. BTW, this is way off track, I realize

You honestly think that trying to put an end to (or at least reduce) terrorism makes you a "barbaric idiot"? And you call 3,000 deaths "very minor"? What the f*ck are you smoking. And back on topic, the Dixie Chicks winning album of the year is a travesty. It just proves that speaking out against the president is the flavor of the week. Yay! Let's reward trends!

I dont agree..with that statement I think that its not a trend to say something that gets boo'd at one time then is agreed with. At the time of their statement..our people still had some faith in our presidents ability to do what he got voted to do...but recently.. its been quite obvious to the rest of this population that he has no business having any authority....its really embarassing.

And speaking out against anything is one of our consitutional rights..thats what those men and women are fighting for..our rights...and protecting us against people threatening to take them away..so..they did every soldier a favor by exercising that right.

dude, this statement has no credibility bcuz I clearly stated that the attack was very minor compared to us dropping bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and testing Nukes on Bikini Atoll, and being responsible for a genocide in Indochina in the 60's, and to answer your next question, of course you've never heard of that bcuz you expect our history books and our media to giv it to us straight, but you've really got to start reading some alt. media.

So youre saying that Muslim Extremists attacked us because we dropped some bombs on Japan in World War II? That argument holds absolutely no weight. And I expect the media, the LIBERAL media, to tell me the truth? You obviously dont know me very well.

No, the muslim extremists attacked more than likely because we don't share their religious views, and I completely disagree w/ that philosophy as I've already mentioned. Why do we hav to keep going thru this, it's exhausting. You would know that if u look back in our nation's history we hav done a lot worse things to other countries than what they did on 9/11. does that make 9/11 OK? Not by any means, except that it made me think a little more. Some people who don't understand things just say 'oh, that's not right' some other people actually take time to consider 'why?' I fall into the latter.
