America vs. The World

The big trouble with dumb bastards is that they are too dumb to believe there is such a thing as being smart. — Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

In defense of country music (not jerks)

Jerry Falwell died, and that's that. He wasn't a great person. He did some good things which are difficult for me to find on the Internet, actually.

But Falwell did far more public bad things. You can read plenty about the ridiculous crap Jerry Falwell pulled in his 73 years on other sites.

I don't make it a secret that I like country music. And when I tell some people that, especially when I'm rocking out to a song with a mean fiddle solo, they scowl. How silly.

I don't support Dixie-Chicks-haters, but I do support Tim McGraw.

I saw Tim McGraw, Faith Hill and other environmentalist rock stars at the Stop Global Warming Tour and he sang this amazing song, which he wrote. Partly because I assumed Tim McGraw, the liberal country heartthrob, was singing this just for me, I cried.

You might not like it, but at least you'll know that there are smart men in cowboy hats out there. And far too many really stupid men in suits running huge organizations.

Cowboy, take me away.
