RE: ASS KICKING
I don't know where the guy gets off with the "insert foot" remark - The Dixie Chicks were the first group to stand up to the jingoistic horseshit the right wing tried to impose on this country as they attempted to equate dissent with being unpatriotic. Inspite of Bush's Clear Channel, Fox News and Infinity Broadcasting Co's attempt to financial ruin them and hold CD burning parties and boycotts, those women stuck to their guns and showed the world how real Americans act when fascists attempt to take out rights away. I don't even listen to country music and I went out and bought two of their albums - pretty darn good music, too. Instead of "sticking their foot in there mouths" they stuck it up the right wing's butt.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
