    Toby Keith's doesn't want guns in their joint. "Corporate dress code".

    Route 1 has changed a bit from the days when Hillbilly Heaven was the sh_t. They had a sign out front that said "Not responsible for life or limb", and I observed the sale of a belt fed rifle in the parking lot.

    From the cop’s perspective, the expression “law-abiding citizen” is a functional synonym for “Properly obedient slave".

    TK bar(not owned by him) is a yuppie, Yankee, redneck wannabe place. Like anti gunners like to profess they are NRA members, Yankees like to pretend they are not Yankees by hanging out in yuppie(supposed) country places.

    The bar is as country as a country bar in NYC.

    Too many liberals from failing cities moved to the area. As Jefferson once said: "I view great cities as pestilential to the morals, the health, and the liberties of man."

    I wouldnt go there anyways. Can't stand country. No gun sign? It's ok, I have a smoker on my porch. I prefer eating without having to listen to that one loud guy laugh at the top of his lungs.

    So according to Toby Keith motorcycles and Guns are acceptable when committing armed robbery, freeing jurisdiction, and shooting at police officers.

    The Hells Angels, Pagans, Outlaws, Banditos and the all other 3-piece-patch organizations are motorcycle CLUBS, not motorcycle groups.

    How about we start using the term "fundamental rights" or "civil rights" as opposed to First or Second Amendment Rights when dealing with not-the-government? If nothing else it will keep my blood pressure at a much lower level.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Good news would have been that they dropped the "no Guns" policy. Even better would have been that Toby Keith publically apologized for the policy being there in the first place.

    News of a business closing is never good news. I am a bit confused, though - was it a scarcity of renecks in the area that caused it's financial problems?

    stay safe.

    Allowing guns and/or providing an apology would have been great. Those didn't happen, and I'm not above taking some satisfaction from their closing.

    Not sure exactly why it closed, though every time I went by there it was empty. It was a country bar, er - restaurant, in a development marketed as upscale. -- that probably was a factor.

    We don't have one around here, but I heard the food sucked and was expensive. Not a good combination.

    Toby Keith is a hypocrite, a nationalist, and a blithering idiot. None of this is any surprise. He got his check for the name usage. What does he care?

    "We'll put a boot in your ass - it's the American way!" and other ridiculously "patriotic" songs after 9/11 made me gag on my own vomit. I really don't like the guy and would never be caught at any event or venue associated with him in any way.

    I realize that at one time country music was probably the sole realm of actual, rural folks who happened to have musical talent and sang about what they knew. Today, country music is big business.

    While attending college in the Boston area some 20 years ago I met, through church, several persons attending one or another of the fine music/performing schools in the area. None of the music students I met happened to come from rural or even highly conservative backgrounds. They were talented musicians attending some very good schools, looking to make a career in the music business.

    Where they ended up, what genre they pursued seemed to me to be a combination of personal taste, talent and voice style, along with dumb luck and which opportunity hit first.

    I remember one associate doing a performance for our church group that included some country numbers. He had an appropriate costume--and for him, it really was a costume as opposed to normal or working attire--for the numbers and performed very well. Knowing of my more rural upbringing, afterwards he asked me what I thought. I told him his music was great, but that if he was going to do country, he needed to get more comfortable with the cowboy hat and to stop adjusting it so much because it made obvious that he wasn't comfortable in that hat.

    Frankly, I'm with WalkingWolf on this one.

    I don't care about and don't much care to know about the politics (or even religious views) of entertainers, or clerks in the grocery store, or the guy selling me burgers. If someone wants to sell me a CD, or hamburger, or a gallon of milk or gasoline, then let's have that be the basis of our relationship and leave everything else out of it.

    Obviously, everyone has his right to speak his mind. And if entertainers want to get political so be it. Elton John has some great music regardless of what I think of his personal sex life. So I don't give his sex life much thought. Ditto for Tom Cruise's religious beliefs, or a musician's political views. If these things get to the point they distract from the product being sold, it will affect sales.

    As for the gun ban itself, I find such bans no more (nor less) offensive than I would a company policy banning blacks, Irish, Catholics, or women. And I think most such bans arise for the same mindset.

    I have to admit that I used to have such ignorant (but well-meaning) thoughts like the one corrected here by Skid. I learned it from my homefolks. Yes, I, too, was ignorant! But then, somehow, I sort of woke up to the foolishness I had been repeating. Kind of like people who shout "I could care less!" They have not yet come to a place where they think about the actual words they are saying. They just repeat the ignorance they hear around them. Problem is, how can we possibly wake up the general population from saying such dumb things? I'm not sure we can ever, like putting out a field of grass on fire with a squirt gun . . . . . we can only correct them one at a time, and that just ain't making any real progress. Pretty sad, and explains our Amerikan society today.
