People just want stars to keep quiet

On Fox News

Americans who aren't fans of politics-laced entertainment — the kind served up by the likes of Whoopi Goldberg , Linda Ronstadt and the Dixie Chicks — say they're responding the only way they know how: by boycotting, or threatening to boycott, products of celebs who speak out.

Now the celebs will call this being blackballed. That’s because they haven’t a clue. I know there are many, many, many celebs that share the opinion of the celebs listed above. The difference they like their paycheck and keep there mouth shut! Which is what they need to do. They can have an opinion, I would fight for there right to have an opinion, but that does not mean that I want to hear it, or support it with my money. While they are entitled to have a stupid, uninformed opinion, They need to remember that the first amendment does not protect them from the people on the street. It is only there to protect you from the government. Now lots of people have complained about these people having there rights trampled on, what that means is obviously they failed social studies in high school.
