Jim the Bart BS: The Dixie Pricks (27) RE: BS: The Dixie Pricks 01 May 03


Is it worth the effort to write this? (he asks himself)

You don't really believe that the Dixie Chicks would record a song like this, do you? It is either a (not so) clever parody of a Country song by a group using a (not so) clever parody of their name OR It is something that the poster made up his own self. Either way, it (ironically) proves a point about this war and the controversy surrounding it.

Some people hear something and pass it along as if it were "God's own truth" without even thinking. Whether it's what the government says, what some celebrities say, what some media pundits say, or what some citizen "expressing his right to free speech under the 5th Amendment" (I know) says.

It's too much work for most people to PAY ATTENTION; and listening IS a SKILL. But the really sad part to me is that our "leaders" - both in government and in the business sector - have learned to depend on our short attention span and lazy habits to get what they want from us. We are complicit in our own screwing.

If the original post was a joke, nice try, but I just don't think this is funny any more.

Love ya
Bart
