An Open Letter To The Hollywood Bunch by Charlie Daniels......

Ok let's just say for a moment you bunch of pampered, overpaid,
unrealistic children had your way and the U.S.A. didn't go into Iraq.

Let's say that you really get your way and we destroy all our nuclear
weapons and stick daisies in our gun barrels and sit around with some
white wine and cheese and pat ourselves on the back, so proud of what
we've done
for world peace.

Let's say that we cut the military budget to just enough to keep the
National Guard on hand to help out with floods and fires.

Let's say that we close down our military bases all over the world and
bring the troops home, increase our foreign aid and drop all the
trade sanctions against everybody.

suppose that in your fantasy world this would create a utopian world
where everybody would live in peace. After all, the great monster, the
United States of America, the cause of all the world's trouble would
disbanded it's horrible military and certainly all the other countries
of the world would follow suit. After all, they only arm themselves to
defend their
countries from the mean old U.S.A.

Why you bunch of pitiful, hypocritical, idiotic, spoiled mugwumps. Get
your head out of the sand and smell the Trade Towers burning. Do you
think that a trip to Iraq by Sean Penn did anything but encourage a
murderer to think that the people of the U.S.A. didn't have the nerve or
the guts
to fight him?

Barbra Streisand's fanatical and hateful rantings about George Bush
makes about as much sense as Michael Jackson hanging a baby over a

You people need to get out of Hollywood once in a while and get out
into the real world. You'd be surprised at the hostility you would find
out here.

Stop in at a truck stop and tell an overworked, long distance truck
driver that you don't think Saddam Hussein is doing anything wrong.

Tell a farmer with a couple of sons in the military that you think the
United States has no right to defend itself.

Go down to Baxley, Georgia and hold an anti-war rally and see what the
folks down there think about you. You people are some of the most
disgusting examples of a waste of protoplasm I've ever had the
displeasure to
hear about.

Sean Penn, you're a traitor to the United States of America. You gave
aid and comfort to the enemy. How many American lives will your little,
"fact finding trip" to Iraq cost? You encouraged Saddam to think that
didn't have the stomach for war.

You people protect one of the most evil men on the face of this earth
and won't lift a finger to save the life of an unborn baby. Freedom of
choice you say?

Well I'm going to exercise some freedom of choice of my own. If I see
any of your names on a marquee, I'm going to boycott the movie. I will
completely stop going to movies if I have to. In most cases it
certainly wouldn't be much of a loss.

You scoff at our military who's boots you're not even worthy to shine

They go to battle and risk their lives so ingrates like you can live
in luxury.

The day of reckoning is coming when you will be faced with the
undeniable truth that the war against Saddam Hussein is the war on

America is in imminent danger. You're either for her or against her .

There is no middle ground.

I think we all know where you stand. What do you think?

God Bless America

...I hope Charlie doesn't mind if I occasionally "borrow" that phrase, "waste of protoplasm"...

Disagree with the abortion analogy, and about this being a war on terror (vs. mopping up unfinished business), but agree with the basic sentiments of his letter.

Political Correctness

We hear a lot these days about political correctness and although it is used to describe a lot of situations I donít know that Iíve ever seen a clear cut definition.

I would like to offer my own personal definition and while Iím sure that it wonít be all inclusive, nor the quintessential end all description of this shallow verbal phenomenon, I nevertheless will give you my impressions.

1. Itís not what something is, itís what you call it.

2. Never actually face reality.

3. There is no evil in the world except for Pat Robertson and Jesse Helms.

4. Iím ok and youíre ok.

5. Give voice to all opinions except those which differ from your own.

6. If you ignore it it will go away.

7. Posture and placate.

8. You bear no responsibility for your own actions, for example if you smoke and get lung cancer itís the tobacco companyís fault.

9. Find a spot where the sand is deep enough to bury your whole head when faced with controversy.

10. Always take the verbal high ground, no matter how silly it is.

11. When it comes to a choice between idealism and practicality always choose idealism.

12. Talk a lot about the environment whether you know what youíre talking about or not.

13. Always support your cronies no matter how wrong they are.

14. Never appear too patriotic , it just ainít cool.

15. Blame America for all the problems in the world except the ones that Bill Clinton caused.

16. Oppose the death penalty while supporting partial birth abortion.

17. Put the rights of animals ahead of the rights of human beings.

18. If someone criticizes a minority, no matter what the reason, scream racists.

19. Advocate trash on television in the name of freedom of speech.

20. Support public television and radio.

21. Never question the decisions of the United Nations.

22. Develop the attitude that all war is bad and always sympathize with the enemy.

23. Blame Israel for the whole Middle Eastern mess, making excuses for the poor old Palestinian bombers who blow up women and children.

24. Be strong on the issue of church versus state and ostracize anybody who is old fashioned enough to believe that the words under God should be in the Pledge of Allegiance.

25. Attend all functions like the Foundation for the Arts soiree,have a glass of chardonnay and a piece of quiche and rub elbows with the hoi poloi. P.S. The chardonnay is optional anda glass of Perrier can be substituted, but the quiche is mandatory.

26. Last and most important, get yourself ready for a very large dose of reality. Itís coming. Youíd better believe itís coming.

What do you think?

God Bless America

The only thing I could add to that is:
...And make sure your pinky finger is extended...

From another post by deleted:

Military analysts blame strong upper level winds as the reason the 21,000 lb MOAB bomb missed its intended coordinates.

But the Air Force remains undeterred and stated they will target Hollywood, CA again in the next few days.

Luv you Charlie...and Luv your brother Jack as well.
