Full story: KLBK-TV Lubbock

The Dixie Chicks burst onto the music scene with hits like "Wide Open Spaces" and "Goodbye Earl". But after Natalie Maines` negative comments toward President Bush, they all but vanished from the limelight.

I am ready to hear the new album and I will buy the album as soon as it is released. I can't wait. You have to hand it to them that they have a great sound. I may not agree with how they are politically involved but that is not going to stop me from listening to great music. great music is hard to find. They have the talent, so they have a fan.

Good for you. I will admit that I am not into their style of music...give me that good ol' rock & roll.

But I thought it was pretty senseless to stop buying their music because they had used their freedom of speech...even if they did say something you didn't like.

And another thing while I am at it. I used to love listening to Toby Keith and sometimes I still catch myself enjoying his lyrics and music. However, showing a picture of Natalie Maines hugging Saddam Husain at HIS concert was stupid and shows how much character and true artistship he has. Now, just becuase I don't agree with what he did doesn't mean I stop listening to his music but in my opinion lowers my respect towards him as an American. I don't think his dad who was a soilder would agree of his behavior. Very child-like. And if he says Natalie was child-like in his defense, is retrarded. The Boycott should have been his music and not the Dixie Chicks.

How dare Natalie Maines speak the truth! Bush is a moron. I have notice his approval rating go lower and lower. Many of his staunchest supporters are silent now. He is a disaster.

I am a soldier serving in Iraq and I think people need to support the soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines who are put in harms way. I enjoy the Dixie chick’s music and we are lucky to be in a country where we can speak freely. I might not agree with what they have to say, but we all have the right to free speech.

Scott, I agree the armed forces need support – a bit of certainty and support from their commanders about time frames and mission objectives first and foremost - but that doesn't translate to accepting they should be there. Fact is the armies of our countries shouldn't have moved in in the first place – if Saddam was the target there were any number of better ways than using a whole army. But now we’ve created the God-awful mess we have, forces on the ground either need to shape up or ship out. And I hate to say, there’s ample evidence the US army cannot fix the mess we have created. There are not enough men on the ground or goodwill to the men that are there to make it possible – although there might be if BushCo were more willing to say please for the help it so desperately needs. This was entirely predictable when a single country declared it would invade despite the will of the UN and then looked for political but not significant monetary or military contribution (to the victor go the spoils – if there are any). It is doubtful any single country can afford the men or money it takes to do something as world-shaking as rebuilding a whole country. It is certain the people of no one country will allow their government to spend the men or money needed to do so. Hence the world finds itself in the position most of us (incl. the Dixie Chicks:) knew would happen – the US, with OZ and UK cronyism, have created a debacle they are powerless to fix and must wait for sufficient internal protest to build up to give them an out acceptable to their domestic politic –‘We have listened to you, the protesting people, and NOW think you are right. We are therefore pulling out and dumping our mess on the rest of the world to fix. Thank you so much for providing us with an exit strategy that didn’t involve saying we’d actually failed miserably.’

But, our differences on your being there aside, I do raise my hat to you mate – if you’re managing to inject a bit of security into the lives of individual Iraqis you deserve to be saluted regardless of why they need that security. You do what many consider to be a pretty cr@p job and I don’t suppose you get much thanks – and I know first hand how and what you guys are doing in Iraq. So, our differences aside, I hope you’re doing a good job and hope you know there are people who think it’s a job that needs doing, that appreciate everything you do well and want you to come home safe and sound of mind and body. Cheers Mate.

I do believe in freedom of speech and I also believe in freedom to support anyone that I agree with and not to support anyone that I disagree with. I vote both at the ballot box and with my dollars and I don't vote for anyone that I disagree with and As for Bush having low approval points, I voted for him twice but I will not vote for him again.

Come on people, lose your ignorance and embrace the fundementel idea in this country known as FREE SPEACH! I think it is extremely childish for someone to hold a grudge against something someone said that you diagree with! All people have their own views and beliefs; that makes us INDIVIDUALS. So to all that expressed negative attitudes toward Natalie Maines, I commend you for your ability to speak for yourself but condemn your inability to forgive her for speaking for herself!

I don't care what any celebrity says about anything. If they are talented people and I enjoy watching or listening to them, then I am going to follow their careers. I enjoy the Dixie Chicks' songs and I believe they are an extremely talented group. I wish they would tour more through Texas but most Texans are too stupid and close-minded to separate freedom of expression from simply enjoying the talents of others. And I am sure some idiot would try to wreck their performances and end up making the rest of Texas look bad.

Well, Bob, since you are so full of praise-be-and-glory-to-dubya! hellfire, could you please get off the internet and sign up for a tour of duty in Iraq? I'm sure someone there would be hapy to see you, Mr.Gung-ho, take his or her place!

I like this quote from him-

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.
