Merle Haggard is a fucking idiot
I know this is from 2002, but I just saw it. Merle Haggard is a fucking idiot.
"We had more freedom and voice of opinion in 1960 in San Quentin than we do now on the street," he says. "We can't say anything now like we could back then. Little by little, we've allowed them to take our freedoms away. Prior to September 11, the U.S. was the last place without M-16s in the street, and now we'll join the rest. We were in better shape 24 months ago than now. Never before have I been afraid to speak out. In the last few weeks I have."Of all the celebrity pronouncements and blather, this might be the stupidest I've seen. That is a stiff competition. This is like those idiots standing on the side of the street LOUDLY proclaiming their right to free speech has been taken away.
I can only assume that Mr. Haggard was taken away in the middle of the night to be tortured for his speaking against the government.
Seriously... look at his words. Anyone reading this rather be in San Quentin in 1960 or anywhere in America in 2006? This might be the stupidest thing I've ever read.
Watch this... George W. Bush is a stupid douche-monkey who likes to diddle children. Rumsfeld eats goat shit. Cheney licks the toilet seats in bath houses.
Know what's going to happen to me as a result of saying that. NOTHING.
That's me speaking "truth to power." Courage.
