Solidarity

If you are a Domebeer-aholic, you know we love Liberty and hate Tyranny.

The decision by a bureaucratic body to ban a song because of a word? That smacks of Tyranny. Fuck Tyranny. Fuck Censorship, and fuck the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council.

(On a personal note, one of the few rock songs I, A Z R, listen too happens to be 'Money For Nothing', so I'm a little pissed about the ban, not that I listen to the radio rock, but still, the principle of the thing)

Lyrics from here.

Now look at them yo-yo's that's the way you do it You play the guitar on the MTV That ain't workin' that's the way you do it Money for nothin' and your chicks for free Now that ain't workin' that's the way you do it Lemme tell ya them guys ain't dumb Maybe get a blister on your little finger Maybe get a blister on your thumb We gotta install microwave ovens Custom kitchen deliveries We gotta move these refrigerators We gotta move these color TV's (See the little faggot with the earring and the makeup Yeah buddy that's his own hair That little faggot got his own jet airplane That little faggot he's a millionaire) Gotta install microwave ovens Custom kitchen deliveries We gotta move these refrigerators Gotta move these color TV's I shoulda learned to play the guitar I shoulda learned to play them drums Look at that mama, she got it stickin' in the camera Man we could have some And he's up there, what's that? Hawaiian noises? Bangin' on the bongos like a chimpanzee That ain't workin' that's the way you do it Get your money for nothin' get your chicks for free We gotta install microwave ovens Custom kitchens deliveries We gotta move these refrigerators We gotta move these color TV's Look a' here That ain't workin' that's the way you do it You play the guitar on your MTV That ain't workin' that's the way you do it Money for nothin' and your chicks for free Money for nothin' and chicks for free Money for nothin' and your chicks for free Look at that, look at that Money for nothin' and your chicks for free I want my, I want my, I want my MTV Money for nothin' and chicks for free (Fade) I want my, I want my, I want my MTV


Dire Straits. Tyranny has us defending Dire Straits. Fuck Tyranny. It's a fucking joke. It's just a song. Hell, Sting has a writer credit on the thing, and Sting loves gays. It's just bad PR for the gay lobby. If you wanna know why the stereotype of the 'gay fascist' exists, it's because of incidents like this (yes, we could talk about the SA, but you shouldn't compare people to Nazi's, even if they like to use some of the same censorship techniques).
 
Furthermore, I think Peter Loubardias should be fired.

  1. I saw this on the newswire this morning, and it brought a little sadness to my heart...one of my first memories of Rock n' Roll was my Dad driving me to school while we had "Brothers in Arms" cranked on the quadrophonic stereo system in his 1977 Ford Pinto (great music/sh**ty car). I can still hear today Mark Knopfler's opening guitar riff to Money for Nothing as the entire Pinto would rattle and shake.

    Sadly, tyranny swallows a free society one of two ways...violent overthrow (see Bolsheviks/Ayatollahs) or death by a thousand paper cuts (see North America/Western Europe) Today was just another papercut that along with the hundreds of others before it, will slowly bleed Liberty dry.
