I want to know who corporate america is supporting politically and I believe it makes perfect sense for me to deny them my dollars if they are supporting political interests which I believe are contrary to my interests. If you believe heinz is enriching your opponent, it makes no sense for you buy heinz products.

However I have a hunch that the republican supporters jumped off the anti-heinz bandwagon because many more consumer product companies contribute to the republicans than the democrats.

I'm sure she was referring to the type of "Christian" that are not really that. The ones who really aren't following the words or intent of Jesus. Fortunately I personally don't know any of these. I know they are out there for I see their antics. Pat Robertson is a prime example.

Madman there is no way to determine what type of Christian she ment. When she said that it is taken that she was refering to all forms of Christian religions, ones of believe that Jesus was the son of God. So thats basicly Protestants, Roman Catholics, Mormons etc. She did not specify.

They still entertain, but as you can see she is bitter towards those she thinks have done her wrong so in her mind she's lashing out.

Hey, whatever makes her feel better, I won't go to her concerts i've never even heard of her until now, maybe she enjoys the media attention because it's been along time?? Who knows, I know her now because of this.

Maybe she is a paying member to the church of satan and their telling her what to say?? Who knows who cares...

She obviously thinks she's been defiled.. the hotel management filed her under g for dedicating a song, as much as I hate the bastard he is a film maker, not a politician, he made a controversial movie, she liked it so she dedicated the song to him... big whoopdi do da.. #ing people are becoming insane..

but again I say : Politicians are ever more becoming part of our lives, and their BRAINWASHING US!!! Watch out people their swooping down to come and tell us what to think about which sides and how to think...

2004 baby only 8 more years until the end of the world, lets start enjoying instead of ripping eachothers heads off and eating them for lunch!! remember? make peace not war... ah # that, it'll never work, too many people need drama in their lives, it's become an addiction...

Excuse me, but, if you read the article, she said "fundamental Christians." By that I assume she meant fundamentalist Christians. You know, people like Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell, who claimed that 9/11 was God's punishment for homosexuality and liberalism. The truth is, the so-called fundamentalist Christians are devil-worshippers and a shameful disgrace to the name of Christianity.

Excuse me, but that is precisely what the ACLU and liberals say. It is the conservatives in this thread who are saying that she was being paid to sing and that she was out of line to express her political views. She was being paid to give a concert. In concerts, singers frequently talk to the audience and dedicate songs to people. That's all she did, folks. She dedicated a song to Michael Moore.

I have been to dozens of concerts and never have any of them done this. (dedicate songs in a political manner) They talk about music, if you have their albums, etc

Perhaps she was given implicit instructions by the casino to just stick to the music, I don't know. Like I said in a previous post, and as a former boss used to tell me, until you sign the paychecks, you are at the mercy of the one who does.

Looks like the casino owner utuilized his right as an employer to fire her immediately. I don't see anything wrong with it. I mean sure, you can give your political views while performing a concert, but don't be upset if your EMPLOYER doesn't appreciate it, for whatever reason. She expressed her right to free speech and the casino owner expressed his right to terminate her and escort from the premises.

You see, free speech kind of goes out the window when you are getting paid, especially if it goes against what the owner believes. What if you were being paid as an employee for the elect John Kerry camp and you started praising George Bush publicly. Does John Kerry not have the right to fire you?

Hell, I don't like being around fundametalist christians let alone having to sing to them. I can only hear"you go to hell! you don't act like the sheep and give us your money like we tell you to you go to hell!!!" so many times before I go on a murder spree. Damn, people just don't realize how annoying it gets hearing "you going to hell for thinking your own thoughts and not wanting to be a slave to a book written 2000 years ago" whenever the fundies get a voice. So a non-fundie person says that and she gets booed off the stage? Hell, I would have to, heard her music, I guess they wanted a reason besides the fact her music sucks to boo her. It'd be like listening to rap for an hour and then when the guy dedicates his new song "kill da f*cking pregnant liberal hoes and b*tches by punching them in the stomach several times" to Bush and the people boo them off stage, it wasn't for the dedication, it was the fact that the song/music sucks.(There is a song where the rapper tells people that if their g/f won't get an abortion punch the "bitch" in the stomach, and people still say rap is music)

In the days of my youth most artists put their protests into song and made fortunes off of them. The same as Toby Keith is doing today with his "rah-rah patriotism" songs.

"Tin soldiers and Nixon's coming. We're finally on our own. This summer I hear the drumming. Four dead in Ohio."

So it is not that unusual for entertainers to speak out. I guess it depends on what side of the fence one is on whether one is allowed to speak out or not today. What a shame. Not the America I grew up loving.
