I'm not very political, but...

I do love the Dixie Chicks. Last night I saw their documentary "Shut up and Sing" and it was awesome. I cannot believe the flak they went through for expressing their opinion. I don't care that it was out of the US, they had a right to do it and the backlash they experienced as a result was infreakingcredible to me. Especially in a country that is supposed to be the land of the free. Free speech. Freedom of opinion. I thought it was pretty darn low of Bush to retort back to the effect of "if they can't take a little criticism..." Hardly a little criticism. I am not anti-American by any means, and I'm not even a very patriotic Canadian. I don't get the whole "stand by your country no matter what" concept. However, I just have to say that looking at how much of the US reacted after that, I thank my lucky stars to be Canadian.
