Subject: and to go along with that

Jane Fonda is a rallying point for those with her ideology.
She went to Hanoi and is listed along with Senator John Kerry as being a hero in North Vietnam. Being an American with the right to free speech doesn't give you the right to
give aid and comfort to those we are at war with. And in the eyes of many, that is what she did.

I would venture to guess that much of the disdain the Dixie Chicks suffered was part of the fallout that happened with Jane Fonda so long ago. They were overseas, in London and expressed their anger and embarassment about
Bush to a foreign audience. That is a no no. When I was overseas, my husband had to get command sponsorship for me.
I was counseled that I was an unofficial representative for my country and that my actions could be a reflection of the US and the US military.

And believe me, there were people who lost command sponsorship and were sent home. My husband was in Germany for about three and a half years; I married him a year after he was over there and was there for nearly three years.
