Country music isint my favorite by all means. I am more of a rocker, a heavy metal rocker for sure. Once upon a time, wayyyyy back in the 80’s, when I had BIG hair (real big hair), I was a metal head. You’d be suprised at the ‘metal heads’ of my era that attended school alongside of me at St. Marys. Suprisingly, we werent ostracized. Anyhow, back to the topic. I am so damn sick of these so called ‘celebrities’ bashing Pres. Bush and our govt’. I have NOT and never will be a fan of the Dixie bitches-oops I meant Dixie Chics. I would not have one of thier CD’s if it was free or a gift from them personally. After thier ill made comments about President Bush back in 2003, I was kinda hoping they would fade off into celebrity has beens oblivion. No such luck dammit! Toby Keith has made his stance in regards to the Dixies, they have had a long standing fued since the Chics ripped on our good President. Mr. Keith makes no bones about where he comes from and what his views are. For country music, I can handle a little bit of ole Toby. Because, I am PROUD to be an American.
Jane Fonda is another loose nut that irritates me to no end. She started with Vietnam and now shes jumping on Michael Moore’s, Sheenan bandwagon to protest the war in Iraq-give it a rest you, old bag. Isint she ready for the old folks home yet?
This is what I read that started my tirade against celebrity Bush Bashers:
I do not always agree with the President on every single issue. But the majority of issues I do, the ones that matter anyhow. I think he is doing the best he can.
Another thing that is really chapping my azz here lately. I am so tired of the whiners at the gas pumps. Okay, gas is outrageously priced at $2.68 here in Oklahoma too. Sell the gas guzzlers and buy a Honda or a Toyota, walk, ride a bike, or better yet, a horse! Cut back on your driving, car pool, take public transit, just shut up about the damn gas prices.
We Oil Producers of America are not getting a discount at the pumps, we are paying the same as everyone else. Oil is at $72 a barrel. People are forgetting times like back in ’98 when oil dropped to $10.35 a barrel. Times when good hardworking Oil Producers of this Nation barely got by, and some who didnt get by. My family and I had a couple of rough years in those days. We did acquire more debt than the average American citizen because of the state crude oil was in those years. Crude Oil is how my family pays our bills, its how we eat, it is how we survive. Crude Oil is my husbands job and livelihood, it is all he knows, he is good at it, and he thoroughly enjoys it. This last year has been financially, the best we’ve ever had. Not only us, but the economy (in my Oklahoma area) in general. We’ve been able to become almost debt free. We have been careful to put some cash back. If Crude does drop back to $10 a barrel, this time, we wont lose the farm.
Well, I am done ranting. I think I’ll go ride my horse, then guzzle a few Budwesiers, that is a combination that always makes me feel mucho better. If ya’ all want to rant along with me, feel free!
