From David Thibodeaux Myspace page:

A fellow Marine and I wrote, and I recorded a song titled "Not Ready To End The Fight." This song was inspired by the fact that I, like many Americans, don't particularly appreciate the underlying message behind the Dixie Chicks' song "Not Ready To Make Nice." While I did like the underlying music from the song, the lyrics' just didn't sit well with me, many of my colleagues and other Americans. After being urged on by friends, family, and colleagues I decided to record "Not Ready To End The Fight" to make a point, criticize, comment and answer the Dixie Chicks song and all the other Hollywood stars that constantly overestimate my interest in their personal politics and their level of competence in foreign policy and about how our Country should be run and how they imply they know what is better for this Country than our elected officials.

I know there are very complicated issues that must be considered when undertaking a war. I certainly don’t pretend to have the solutions to any foreign policy issues. I also know that smart people can look at the same set of facts and events and often reach different conclusions. That is probably a good thing! So anyone who characterizes these very complicated terrorism and war issues as very easy-and-simple need to try to at least try to see the other side of the issue… no matter what side you are on.

I am just an ordinary "country boy" who feels like I need to speak up about my personal opinions, experiences, and exercise my freedom of speech! I am 23, a husband, a father, a full time Marine and part time musician. I am not a celebrity or politician, nor do I know any. My wife and I are hardworking, religious, family oriented, patriotic Americans. We each were born and reared in small-town Louisiana. I grew up in Eunice, Louisiana. I also have family in Texas. My wife, newborn son, and I live in the Washington, D.C. area where I am presently stationed. We are blessed with large supportive families.

To make a contribution to the Country and the war effort, I joined the Marine Corps upon my graduation from high school. I have served in combat in both Afghanistan and Iraq with extraordinarily unselfish and brave Americans.

Thanks to everyone who strongly supports the military and our mission! Your prayers and appreciation make our job gratifying!

Semper Fi!- David Thibodeaux

That song really sucked! I absolutely hated the whole thing. It was just awful & really pissed me off. Thanks for getting my blood boilin' this evening.

No problem. I think it elicited the response it was supposed to you.

We are a Marine Corps family also. This song is amazing! Unless you've been through this first hand there is no way you could possibly understand the emotions behind it. I'm proud of my Marine, and thank God everyday he came home. Semper Fi, and thank you!

I'm not a big country fan either but anyone who makes fun of the Marines is a stupid dick... and you certainly fit that bill with your junior high level posts.

okay, after actually watching this crap I take back my apology. Sacred cow or not, that was the corniest, most inane, backwoods cornpoke thing I think I've ever seen.

They are sacred. It's ok. I accept your apology... even if you took back your apology. ;-)

You have to understand the context of the time and the Dixie Chicks song. I'm not prentending it was Hank Sr. or Johnny Cash. I'm a metalhead myself, so it's obviously not my preferred music either.

And since you used the reterd thing, I kind of confused you with other guy with the other I.P. address... hence the above comment.

They had the freedom to say they wanted to, but people also had the freedom to not go to their concerts and to mock them.

In retrospect, I think many Republicans were ashamed George Bush was their President, much less from Texas.

They should transplant Austin somewhere in Arkansas and allow the rest of Texas to secede.

You have a valid point, but you should include Houston to.

Unfortunately the entire state may secede to Mexico if current trends continue.

You are absolutely right in your observation.It's worse than you can imagine. Everybody here, but the media and the government, hates the mexican " invaders". They are a drain on the welfare system as well as our culture. Can you think of one contribution they have made to science, law, medicine, education etc etc ?

Are you a native american? If not then you are the descendent of an immigrant. The reason most of them are illegal is because it is extremely hard to come into this country legally. I say offer all the illegals amnesty and eventual citizenship. Offer them public service work to pay for their room and board. This would be an inexpensive way to build up the infrastructure we so desperately need in this country. I'm not talking forced labor either, but a requirement of public service & taxable income should be included in any citizenship reform.
