I don't know how their search engine can register a search when (0) is the number of times it's been searched-upon.

BTW, the whole Dixie Chicks "thing" was a GOP conspiracy. Pass it on!

How could we not give this guy the SpeakOut Award?

E-Mail: Michael Moore And congratulate him on his new award! They have a POLL!!

What do you think of Al Sharpton?

Here's Paula Cole (one hit wonder) hoping you notice her.

If you get bored with the what she's saying, at least soak up her website bandwidth by downloading and deleting her music files (see end of post)

Paula Cole On her official website PaulaCole.com artist Paula Cole spoke out for freedom of speech and released a new single bashing President George W. Bush over everything from the election 2000 and corporation ass kissing to the destruction of our civil liberties writing:

"I believe it's an artist's duty to raise consciousness through their art. I aspire to the Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye, KRS-1, Neil Young, Pearl Jam, Beastie Boys, Tracy Chapman, Paul Robeson, John Lennon-style artform that combines love, spirituality, and yes, politics. I distinctly thought of "Ohio" when I wrote "My Hero, Mr. President" but I also thought of Michael Moore's advice to "be funny." So, it quickly became a sardonic piece."

"I am saddened by these times... I wish we were in a time when independent radio dj's could play what they wanted, and that people felt free enough to publically question the government and the media more. So... forgive me for my soapbox moment, but in my core, I feel it is my responsibility to say something."

"My little demo will probably never be played on today's radio, but with the internet, there is still some freedom! I just wanted to bring some light as to why I posted the song. It's just a home demo; not an album track. I wrote it originally because I needed to get those feelings off my chest! I knew "My Hero..." was relevant only NOW, so I put it up on the site: I didn't even tell Warner Brothers. It probably won't be a single. Who knows, maybe it won't even make the album(?)... I simply thought it should be heard by people who care."

Paula is definately a welcome addition to the LiberalArtists.com gallery! Below are the lyrics to her song "My Hero, Mr. President."

Yea, Yea
Yea, Yea, Yea

Well hello there, blue blood boy
Your bed is lined with dollars
I bet you're cumming oil

I love the way you take control and push the world around
United Nations- Ha,ha
No one can keep you down

Daddy's little helper, silver foot in your mouth
Policeman of the world gonna start another war
Connecticut yankee in a cowboy hat
You're my hero, Mr. president

Remember the elections for the presidency
No matter the call of the majority
Your cousin married Fox TV, he declared you were the one
Your brother came through with his promise he'd get Florida

(Chorus)

Now what you gonna do about our economy
You spend three trillion dollars in a heartbeat
Now what about us folks who live hand to mouth
We can't afford our lives, and we're working three jobs

(chorus)

Now Don't you want your grand children to see the colorado river?
You're kissing so much corporate ass that
You're selling away our future

We can all wear our geo-thermal suits and toast to you 'W'

Now wiping out the terrorists, that's fine by me
But please don't errode our civil liberties
The America we fight for and hold so dear
Includes a woman's right to choose
Freedom of religion, freedom of assembly
And free speech like the song I'm singing here

(chorus)

Daddy's little helper, silver sthingy in your mouth
The Policeman of the world gonna kick Hussein's butt
Connecticut yankee in a cowboy hat
You're my hero, Mr. President
You're my hero, Mr. President
You're our Nero, Mr. President
Mmmhmm

Wow. As someone who's seen and heard a lot of garbage disguised as "art," let me just say that is a revolting song. I doubt there will be a backlash, however, as no one cares what she thinks. Talk about a grab for attention.

It was a GOP conspiracy but their manager assures their record label that the angry calls are from some right wing conspirators at a website called Free Republic that united their efforts on Algore Junior's Internet.

I wish we were in a time when independent radio dj's could play what they wanted

It hasn't been that way since the early 1960s. Payola laws largely did away with that practice. Payola didn't end, it just shifted to write-downs (writing down one song while playing another) and paying the program director (cash or cocaine or points on a concert).

"Clear Channel's" radio ownership isn't why radio sucks. It's been terrible for decades. Does anyone remember Top 40 stations?

Actually if Clear Channel could own every station in a city (which is not something that I want to see) there could be more specialized programming. One owner had 2 country stations and rather than use both to program the same mix against the chief competitor, one played the modern hits while the other played OLD country and independent "No Depression" country music. If you own 4 rock stations in a city, one is "moldy oldies" (50s60s70s pop), one is "classic rock" (60s70s80s stoner/metal), and another is modern hits (angry teen corporate punk or pop dance); it leaves room for another format (more daring or at least different, say adult retro). One station doesn't have to try to be all things to all people.

There won't be a backlash because no one even knows who she is. I saw this song last year (when I was looking into the controversy about other performers).

This song only existed on her website last year. Left Wing Hate Radio (Pacifica, NPR) may give her protest song airplay but in general she's just another a download.

Here's a graphic that can be used by anyone who downloads the song and wants to burn it on a CD:

Pretty pathetic, and funny. Why do liberal artists need a website when they already have a city all to themselves?

This site is REALLY an "Onion" joke....right? How do we seriously consider a point of view page with such nuggets as "Public Enemy Bashes Bush...." Or a retort to Dennis Miller's support of the president with this little "quotable quip:"

"If killing innocent people in the name of oil doesn't make you proud... your not a moron!"

Guess the writer meant to say you're as in YOU ARE. Well on one point I concur: you ARE morons, but entitled to let the entire world see the truth.

It was all a Republican scam.
Published on 05/21/03 at 01:07:47 PST by Admin

There was no reason to interpret the hostile response that followed Maines's anti-war comments as a spontaneous reaction of an outraged country audience. In fact it now appears the attack on the Dixie Chicks was a political maneuver no less calculated than the Watergate break-in.

At least according to former Reprise Records president Howie Klein. "Phone calls originating from Republican Party headquarters in Washington went out to country stations, urging them to remove the Dixie Chicks from their playlists." Klein says.

"The 'alternative concert' [to the Dixie Chicks' tour opener] was actually the work of the South Carolina Republican Party. And party officials were helping promote the concert. We received a call from 'Gallagher's Army,' urging us to support the alternative concert. Caller ID backtraced the call to South Carolina GOP headquarters."

Chain radio stations were quick to dump the Chicks because their parent companies (Clear Channel, Viacom, et al) have pressing business in the nation's capitol and they want help from the Republican Party. For instance Secretary of State Colin Powell's son is currently chairman of the FCC which is in the midst of deciding whether or not to relax federal regulations which currently stand in the way of a complete Radio Monopoly.

So was this pre-emptive payback for future favors from the Government? Only time will tell.

Now, now. Let's not get angry with Ms. Cole. The hairy-armpitted one has been off the radio for years, her record label has constantly delayed her new CD release for lack of interest, so she has had to get by by giving hand jobs to passerby's and tourists in San Francisco. It's not pleasant and can lead to the kind of irrational hostility that you see in her new music. Perhaps one day she'll get her career back. More likely, she'll just be turning tricks on a city street corner for the next 15 years.

Writing protest songs on a tin foil guitar are they?

Reprise is owned by Warner Bros. who's tied in with AOL-Turner-CNN. I can make my own BIG MEDIA connection for their tale.

All that an anti-Hollyweird activists website needs to do to avoid the legal pressure that has befallen the others is to mask it as a "pro-Hollyweird activists" website.

Act like you are rallying around them and the outrageous things they say. Provide contact addresses to thank them for their input. Give tour date information so people can go out there with signs and cheer them on.
