Johny Cash was a great person and talented singer.I think that using his name to promote your own hatred and racial bigotry is pretty low, but i guess not for all. Just to remind you - he was wearing black ,not brown shirt.


Don't mean to split hairs here but Johnny Cash WAS NOT a "person" for legal reasons. He WAS and will always be, a HUMAN BEING.

This is part of the problem with the world, we do not KNOW what and who we are. Many song writers such as Bob Dylan aka Robert Zimmerman, have stated this in their songs.

Not until "people" realize the use of these terms is derogatory and harmful in the world, will we ever start going down the right road.

I am not angry nor am I frusrated by anything, just pointing out the facts. We live in the U.S.A. nd NOT the "U.S.", that is another one that always gets me.

What good is it if you do not know the truth or do not stick by it.

This is part of the process to wake up. Know life and know love, and NOT NO LIFE AND NO LOVE!!

He was jailed overnight a few times, once for importing amphetamine pills from mexico, ones he'd been getting legally in the states up until that point. He also crashed his car in a forest in Oklahoma or something and was the first person to be prosecuted for starting such a fire in that state, it destroyed a hell of a lot of forest.

The only time he went to Folsom prison was to do a concert, he was inspired to write the song 'Folsom prison blues' by a film he saw while stationed in Germany that was set in Folsom. Johnny Cash was an amazing man.



You do know a great deal about him. I love many of his songs, Ring of Fire, Walk the Line. His voice was unique. Do you think the story of his life was close to accurate and how did you like the actors in their parts? Reese Witherspoon as June and Johnny, played by Joachim Phoenix.

I ask because this is an area of study for you therefore, you are bound to have an interesting insight the rest of us missed.

Johnny Cash was a great man. I loved the fact that he was big and strong, but not a bully. He was talented and gifted, but humble and polite. I also love the fact that there was part of him that was deeply troubled, and he wasn’t afraid to talk about it, it shows he was human. In his younger days he struggle with drugs and many inner demons, but he got a grip on this and became a very spiritual man. I also love the fact that NO one group can pin Johnny down for their own cause, although they may try, he was an individual, a rebel in the true sense of the word.

Out of all the famous people in history, he is the one guy i feel i can actually relate to. He is the one guy i would love to have had a conversation with.

As for the political undertones to your post... well to be honest I’m not interested in any of that. As a Brit, sometimes American patriotism can seem a little over the top for me, but i think that’s just a cultural thing. Although I would like to point out that Johnny Cash didn’t just see himself as “Anglo Saxon“ For a time he see himself as part Cherokee and was actually hurt when he discovered that in fact he wasn’t. He connected very closely with the plight of the Native Americans and this was reflected in the Album – Bitter Tears: Ballads of the American Indian.

All i will add to this now is...

R.I.P Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash... Two beautiful people who’s souls help to light up the night sky.



This is a tribute to do any man proud. Cheers mate.

To all who contributed to this thread thanks.
Whilst I was writing this op I was listening to Johnny Cash saying the line about the Right to Bear arms.
To the contributors who accussed me of being a racist and using Johnny Cash to promote my hatred, you are so wrong and off the mark it is laughable.

I am as far away from being a racist as Iam from Planet x.
But I do believe passionately about defending ones culture and traditions.
Johnny Cash regardless of his background whether he was part cherokee Jewish whatever stated his passion for defending his piece of ground a nation that allows the right of Muslims to burn the US flag in the US despite their having being raised here.
I wrote the title because I saw in the man integrity not a person who would kow tow to the United Nations charter, whilst his home is changed for the worse.
Its easy for cowards to accuse anyone who is proud of their culture of being bigoted and racist, very easy for those of non Chrisitian backgrounds to call for Easter to be banned, for Christmas to be downplayed in regards to Jesus Christ and to promote Santa Claus as the main man for the Public Holiday.
But try and ridicule trivialise the beliefs of Jews or Muslims and you will know trouble.
I guess Iwas saying it as Johnny cash said it in the line about the flag, and i get flamed for being allegedly racist.
If asking is it right to sit back and have western traditions erased to have China rule the world by virtue of using forced labour by the millions by executing millions, by denying freedom of speech is being bigoted racist then SO BE IT.
Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson,Kris Kristoffersen,Waylon Jennings, man that was a band.

"I fly a starship across the Universe divide
And when I reach the other side
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain
And I'll be back again, and again and again and again and again..."

You know when our house has had a beer or two "The Highwaymen are on the menu , and I swear in that song I can hear God singing through JC ,WN,WJ,KK, brilliant indivdualistic vocalists , taht can never be mistaken for anyone else.
And that is why I believe our western culture is worth fighting for, we can be individuals.

To be honest, in my opinion, patrioism for your country is a terrible thing. Now, if people had that same patrioism for the planet, then the world would be a much better place. To be honest, i find patrioism in America a bit OTT, but i also think that people from a young age are brainwashed to feel this way about their country because its makes it easier to do terrible, horrible things because you believe you are doing it for your country.

If we countinue to have this patrioism for your country way of thinking, then we are always going to have problems


Thats just my opinion. I always tend to see the bigger picture.

Johnny Cash was a christian socialist, he believed in the people over the politics and opposed the greed and materialism that comes with capitalism.

I rock a Cash sig because it's true, leave your guns at home, son....meaning don't wear your pride.

Totally agree , but just to expand on the OP , pride in one s nation is recognising that those that live by the sides of us and us are responsible for making the nation what it is.
The flag is a spiritual representation of this.
Its not about gormless flag waving ,to many the Flag represents the Heart,Soul and History of the place they happen to have lived in for all their lives in many cases.
People from outside who burn the Flag no exactly what they are doing, that is why I believe J.Cash said what he said.
Some lines can be crossed , but out of respect shouldn't be.

I got admit Johnny Cash is one of my personal hero's, he wasn't afraid to stand on what he thought was right, no matter who said otherwise. He questioned everything including himself, and at times this lead him into a deep depression, to the point that when he met June Carter Cash, he told her she saved his life. That is why when he re-did NIN's Hurt, Trent Reznor said that song was now Johnny's because he put so much meaning behind the already deep song. Man in Black will always be my favorite of his cause in my opinion Hurt, and that one show just who Johnny Cash really was, and why he will forever be in the pantheon of Golden God's for me. Original Hurt by NIN: www.youtube.com...

Johnny's Version along with Man in Black: Hurt: www.youtube.com... Man in black: www.youtube.com...
