Viewers would rather watch game shows and sitcoms than Sheryl's wacky anti war protest!

Have another beer Sheryl, and watch the sun come up over Santa Monica Blvd....you'll feel better.
Wouldn't it be hoot to see her covered with weeping small-pox sores?? That would be bad Karma.

Another idiot celebrity with a high school education talking about foreign policy as if she has a clue! Sheryl, shut your pie hole and just sing your song. That's what you're paid to do, sweetheart. Sing he song and shake your ass. Leave foreign policy to someone with far more intelligence than you.

A report on Yahoo! described Ms. Crow as a "musicians rights advocate against the recording companies". This from the gal who claimed ALL the writing credits on her first lp, when the songs arose out of jams with her band. The band is currently suing her for their rightful royalties. Hypocrite!

She didn't have enough nerve to spout that crap when she sang for the prerace ceremonies at a Nascar event last year. She would have been booed off the stage. I never did understand why Nascar picked her as a spokesman for the sport.

Did she also happen to give her views on the economy, fiscal and tax policy?? If so I missed it along with the rest of the show. Sean Penn has said nothing about this either.

Damn. What's an investor to do?

Sheryl started as a elementary school music teacher in Columbia Missouri and then quit to join Wacko Jacko on a world tour as a backup musician.

She was probably indocrinated into the NEA line while she was teaching in Missouri

Again, another entertainment hypocrite. She had no problems performing for the US troops staioned in the Balkans under slick-willie's regime.

I read Crow's statements earlier.

"I think war is based in greed and there are huge karmic retributions that will follow. I think war is never the answer to solving any problems. The best way to solve problems is to not have enemies."

Wow, mediocre looks and vacuous reasoning, sheryl's got it all.

It's even more sinister than that. As I understand it, she belonged to a "struggling artists" group that met and shared creative ideas. "All I Wanna Do" was a poem written by a member of that group. She recorded it, unattributed, and the guy killed himself that same year. Nice girl, that Sheryl.....

From my WWII desk calendar for January 14th:

On this day in 1941, General Francesco Argentino is captured by British & Australian soldiers at Tobruk, North Africa. Argentino is the eleventh Italian general captured during this British offensive.

Once again, a celebrity's opinion is given too much regard. Celebrity opinion should be given the same regard dogs give fire hydrants.

Folks who listen to the advise of Sheryl Crow, Sean Penn, or Barbruh Streisand about matters of war and peace would be better served by having Ozzie Osborne give them a lobotomy.

Will somebody, who speaks this nit wit's lanugage, please sit her down and gently explain to her that no one cares what she has to say. She and her kind are yesterday. Her career has been ended by bad karma.

Doesn't Sheryl's latest song start with the line, "My friend, the communist...holds meetings in his office..."?

Does anyone think Sheryl could sell that song if she replaced the word "communist" with "nazi"?

I'm not saying Sheryl's a communist, but she's pretty insensitive to the 10's of millions of dead victims of communism in a way that she would NEVER consider doing to the victims of fascism.

Ultimately, that's gotta do a number on one's "karma".

Actually, the song 'All I wanna Do' is based on a poem she read in a book. The song is almost word for word the same as the poem, and the poet still receives royalties for that song to this day.

'Leaving Las Vegas' isn't ripped off. But she did admit to being high or drunk when she recorded it.

Sheryl Crow Warns of 'Huge Karmic Retributions' If US Goes to War

What makes Miss or Mrs Crow think that the targets of the war aren't getting karmic retributions for past evil?

Oh, now I get it, Sheryl. If you don't have any facts, and you don't know anything about the subject, you just back up you "opinions" and "feelings" by claiming that if things don't go "your way," it'll be "bad karma."

Got news for you sweetie. Nobody wants war, and I mean NOBODY. Not the President, not Rummy, not me, not you, not the dims, nor the Republicans. It is just that some people are smart enough to recognize that sometimes there just isn't a choice, that sometimes war is the only thing that a despot can understand. The schoolyard bully won't be appeased if you give him his way, he will just keep coming back for your lunch money again and again. If you want to get rid of him, somebody has to open up a can of whoop-ass and teach him a lesson.

See how Clinton "worked" with Kim Jong Il? That's appeasement, and we now know that it obviously didn't work.
