Posted on 11/11/2004 6:14:24 AM PST by Colorado Willie
Listening to Lewis & Floorwax (radio personalities out of Denver, CO on 103.5). Boulder High School is having a talent show Friday night. One of the acts is a band that includes 2 teachers, the band name is "The Taliband". They will be performing a song they worte titled "I Wish George Bush was Dead". This was reported by a parent. The band had to audition in front of a group including two other teachers and were selected to perform Friday night.
That's just fine. Please let us know an office phone number where these administrators may be reached, and if you can, please alert the FBI or Secret Service to this ridiculousness.
Thanks to you Willie.
This gets stranger by the day........

If the whole darned audience doesn't get up and walk out, well I don't know what to say. I wish I could go, just so I could leave. Colorado's a little far from me, though.

Sadly, there is no source for this information. It was 'reported by a parent' is as close as we get.
Personally, I'll like some corroboration of a story like this before blowing my stack over it.
Radio personalities are not necessarily accurate. This may be a hoax.

BOULDER, Colo. (News 4) At least 85 students worried about war, a return of the draft and the future of the environment staged an overnight protest in the Boulder High School library before leaving peacefully Friday morning.
The students said they wanted assurances from political leaders about the direction of the country. Rep. Mark Udall, D-Colo., met with some of the students for about an hour after they left the library at 7 a.m.
"We're worried that in four years we're going to be at war with five countries and we're going to have no trees," senior Cameron Ely-Murdock said.
"I know that's an extreme position, but I'm really worried about the draft," he said.
President Bush and other administration officials have repeatedly said they have no plans to reinstate a draft, despite concerns about the number of troops needed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Principal Ron Cabrera agreed to let the students spend the night in the library if they would leave in time for Friday morning classes, which they did. A handful of teachers and parents stayed with them.
"It's become a really large learning event about civics and having a political voice. And you can't beat that," Cabrera said.
The sit-in began after school Thursday. The students, who brought sleeping bags and food, said they were not protesting Bush's re-election but were worried about the national debt, Iraq and other issues.
The students said they wanted to talk to representatives of GOP Gov. Bill Owens and U.S. Rep. Marilyn Musgrave, R-Colo. Musgrave sponsored the failed constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage.
It was not immediately known whether either received a request or responded.
You did and these rats are traitors!
I've never even thought about doing this before -- but for this concert, I would be sure to bring an over-ripe tomato, and arrive early so as to get a good seat.
This can't be real. Can it? If it is, all I have to say is, "What the F@%# is wrong with these people!?"
Hyphenated twit! Better worry about not having any brains.
That's the one...(303) 442-2430. Mr. Baca and Mr. Cavanaugh are the teachers. Not sure about the spellings of the names.
Bad grammar. It should be I wish he 'were' dead. The jerks can't even get that right.
Why - are we going to be using the trees for ammo in our war with these five countries?
Ineresting. Reference the next-to-the-last line...I thought the amendment passed. Did it fail in Colorado?
I work at an elementary school in Colorado, one day I was walking through the building engineers office and I was greeted with a posting on his bulletin board that depicted President Bush and Cheney with a bullseye on them. This from a school that will not tolerate a child saying Bang Bang at recess...what a bunch of hypocrites.
What's your confidence level in this story? These two are apparently more humorists than news guys. Before we all fly off the handle here, maybe this story should be checked out.
I can't find anything about it on any of the news outlets in that region.
I'm sorry, but a couple of drive-time jocks aren't my idea of a valid news source, especially since they give "a parent" as their only source.
Caution, I think, is in order here.
Of course, there is the possibility that their act is a parody of Bin Laden wishing Bush were dead - they actually could be making fun of the Taliban and Bin Laden rather than wishing Bush were dead themselves. Just a thought.
That would be Mr. Vacca, who also championed the student slumber party questioning the "direction of the country" after the election.
