That does it. I'm burning all my Neil Diamond 8-tracks.
I didn't realize that Willie Nelson was such a leftist weenie.
I didn't realize Willie Nelson was still alive.
oh man. I'll never feel the same about Neil Diamond. What an ass, as is anyone associated with the rats.
All that talent, what a waste.
He still owes the IRS money. They are keeping him alive until his back-taxes are paid in full.
Big PR release: He will cancel all events.
Big PR release: He might view the casket in CA.
Big PR release: He will view the casket in CA.

Big PR release: New dates for rescheduled events.
And President Reagan isn't even buried yet!
LOL! "Everyone across the country" is excited about John Kerry?
Marijuana must be getting awfully potent these days...;)))
Nor did I!!!!
But I bet that he will fry his leftist weenie in the country crowd if he supports JohnF'nKerry.....
In 1974 I shared a bottle of mescal with an old wino who looked like he was on his last binge. I learned the next day it was Willie.
More heartache for poor ol' Clinton-all his groupies shamelessly throwing themselves at another gigolo.
"I didn't realize that Willie Nelson was such a leftist weenie."
Willie did beg that whisky river to take his mind - apparently it did just that.
I'd recommend buying (as I did 10 years ago) the Velvet Gloves and Spit album with underrated Diamond gems like "Twobit Manchild" and "Practically Newborn" (ignore "The Potsmoker's Song" if you want), but not now.
Actually this isn't the first time I've seen Neil branded as a lib by a FReeper. Now I know why.
What a hoot...the dixie chicks not invited..
I will post a new thread for the L.A. FReep on THURSDAY (6/24) - soon. :o)
This is odd. Wille Nelson had to drop out weeks ago due to surgery for carpal tunnel in his wrist. He isn't expected to be able to play anywhere until July yet they still keep promoting him as playing there.
Pinging some Northeast activists!
It gets worse: He wrote and performed a song for a Kucinich rally, an anti-Bush piece called "Whatever happened to peace on Earth?"
He's gone round the bend.
Go get 'em! Freep him like a rented mule!
If anyone wants to be on the FREEPNORAD KerryTrack Freep Flipper ping list, please let me know here or by Freepmail.
I'll probably be doing something constructive like working, but if I'm not who knows? Hopefully I'll have PMS and be really loud ;-)
I'm excited at the opportunity to go out and freep his traitorous ass.
Very, very funny!
Well, to the Left Wing, Pessimism IS consider "positive vision". They all have such a skewed sh***y outlook, ya know?

Thanks for posting the boycott list.
Yeah, but he can still "try" to sing.

Cindy Adams: "One day I write the Kerry concerts are happening, next day I write the Kerry concerts are not happening, another day I write the Kerry concerts are again happening. Some future day I might have to write the latest slate of celebrities who are replacing those who can't make the new date. These Kerry concerts have given me a whole new career."
Thanks for the ping!
I boycotted buying their music long ago. Now I FReep!
(and I'd rather listen to Ted Nugent anyway)
Bump to the Top!
can't believe he need surgery. I would have thought the alcohol and cannabis treatments would have been sufficient?
The book that Kerry
wishes would just go away.
|HanoiJohnKerry.com is a blog with a primary purpose. That purpose is to counter the preposterous claims of Sen. John Forbes Kerry (D-MA) that he has any legitimate claim to any sort of "brotherhood" among combat veterans of the War in Vietnam.
While it is generally supposed that his service as a Naval officer on a "Swift Boat" in that theater was adequate and honorable, there is much to question regarding his readiness to allow the accolade "war hero" to be applied to him.
Likewise, it is not at all uncommon for more senior Naval officers to raise an eyebrow at the swiftness and relative comfort by which Lt. JG Kerry attained those medals, and who is available to vouch for the efficacy of his being awarded them (since, as boat commander, it would be his own task to make recommendation for awards for all personnel, including himself, on the Swift Boat).
But most egregious was his conduct, words and associations upon his early-out (from SEA) return to the USA and discharge from the US Navy. His leadership role with the radical pro-Communist (inaccurate to deem this group "anti-war") group called "Vietnam Veterans Against the [Vietnam] War" (hereafter VVAW).
It was while climbing the social and political ladder of the pro-Soviet Left as a principle of VVAW that John Kerry found his political soul-mate in Hanoi Jane Fonda. Granted, these politically formative years for Kerry were prior to the more outlandish acts of Fonda that earned her that name, but it is easily documentable that Fonda did not under go any radical transformation in belief or character from the time she and Kerry were working the same side of the street to the time she traveled to Hanoi, NVN and entered US history as the most overt traitor to ever NOT be charged, tried and executed.
John Kerry went to his own overt extremes to demonstrate that, politically, socially and in lowness of character, there wasn't a nickel's worth of difference between he and Fonda. Thus, in the spirit of fairness and accuracy, we are reasonably certain that he will be agreeably flattered by calling him Hanoi John Kerry.
Here, testifying before the Fulbright Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is where John Kerry, spokesman for Vietnam Veterans Against the War, cemented his position and moniker as "Hanoi John" Kerry. This was the occasion where US troops still in the field in Vietnam learned from one of their FORMER brothers-in-arms that they were heinous murderers and war criminals. HJK would now like to call on them for support in his bid to be the new Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces. Perhaps the most preposterous hypocrisy of all.

"OUR GOVERNOR can beat up YOUR CANDIDATE!" - FRN to protest "Stars for Kerry" concert in Los Angeles ^ | June 20, 2004 | RonDog (with inspiration from IPWGOP, doodlelady Prime Choice and others)

From Yahoo! MAPS:
Here is a ROUGH DRAFT of our proposed press release:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - June 21, 2004Schwarzenegger Supporters to Confront John Kerry
at Streisand fundraiser (6/24)
Los Angeles -
Members of the Los Angeles Chapter of the Free Republic Network (also known as the "Hollywood Resistance Force") plan to join other local supporters of President George Bush and California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger on THURSDAY, June 24 at 6 p.m., as they protest Barbra Streisand, Neil Diamond, Billy Crystal and Willie Nelson outside a "ten thousand dollar per couple" fundraiser for John Kerry at the Walt Disney Concert Hall--which was originally scheduled for the week after President Reagan died.
Carrying large signs that say "OUR GOVERNOR can beat up YOUR CANDIDATE!" and "Reagan was The GIPPER, but Kerry is The FLIPPER!" they intend to contrast Kerry's irritating tendency to "flip flop" his positions on important national issues with Schwarzenegger's "tough guy" persona crafted from his roles in action-adventure movies like the "Terminator." "We support President Bush," says L.A. FRN Chapter Vice President Ron Smith. "And, we believe that Governor Schwarzenegger shares President Reagan's gift for energizing Californians with a clear vision that will help President Bush 'terminate' Kerry's political aspirations."
"If America had listened to John Kerry," he continues, "Saddam Hussein would still be in KUWAIT right now, rather than being in CAPTIVITY. Kerry even voted against the FIRST Gulf War." Carrying a sign that says "Only 'FOREIGN' Leaders (like SADDAM) like John Kerry!" and wearing a rubber Saddam mask, Smith adds, "These 'Stars for Kerry' may have MUSICAL talent, but POLITICALLY, they are dangerously naive. Unlike Streisand, Schwarzenegger (like Reagan before him) has had the courage to subject HIS political opinions to vigorous public debate--at the ballot box, not just at the box office." In the words of nationally-syndicated talk radio host Laura Ingraham's recent book, those who support Governor Schwarzenegger and President Bush believe that these misguided "Stars for Kerry" should just "Shut Up, and SING!"
By harnessing the power of the Internet, the Free Republic Forum (FreeRepublic.com) gave birth to a new level of grassroots activism that demonstrates how dedicated citizens can effect change by awakening and mobilizing the vast numbers of Americans who still support the rule of law. The Free Republic Network (FreeRepublic.net) organizes, educates, and supports grassroots activists and connects national organizations with grassroots groups and activists across the country that share their common goals and beliefs.
