    "Gotta Serve Somebody"

    You may be an ambassador to England or France
    You may like to gamble, you might like to dance
    You may be the heavyweight champion of the world
    You may be a socialite with a long string of pearls.

    But you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed
    You're gonna have to serve somebody,
    It may be the devil or it may be the Lord
    But you're gonna have to serve somebody.

    (And the ladies sing .....Serve somebodddehhh)

    The Associated Press, I see, beat me to that headline.

    ^This^!!! Bob has enough credit to say whatever the hell he wants in my book!

    Whatever he was saying makes no sense. He should apologize for the sheer stupidity of it.

    All I can say is:

    Buahahahahahaha!!!

    Someone actually charged thim for this? What are the charges? General stupidity? Sheer ignorance? Who bloody cares?
    Btw, I am a Croatian, and there were horrible wars throught our whole history, our darkest, most shameful moment being the WWII. The last war was actually started by the Serbs, and of course, there were crimes on both sides. There always are. But his words in general, about sensinga criminnal in someone's blood? Isn't that a little...fascist? I mean, to judge someone based on their blood, or entity, or ancestors? And this guy gets a medal? Man, we are in a dire need for real humanitarians.

    What Dylan said was just dumb, unless they left out something from the interview.

    Not every Croat approved of (or even knew about) the Ustache's crimes.

    Not every German approved of or knew about the Nazi's crimes

    Not every Turk knew what the Young Turks were doing in Armenia.

    Not every Brit knew what was happening in Ireland during the potato famine.

    Not every Russian knew what happened in the Ukraine during the Holodor

    Not every Japanese knew what happened in Nanking during the atrocities there

    Not every American knew that American Indians were being pushed off of reservations.

    Not every Spanish person knew that all jews and muslims were either being killed or expelled from Spain during the Inquisition.

    Seriously, can all these people smell each other????

    Sorry my post was in response to the article, not your post.

    Bob dylan can say whatever the fuck he wants.
    i don't think this will go anywhere, also if I understood it correctly, it's not france per se suing dylan, it's an organisation of butthurt Croats that are suing, basing their suit on France's anti hate speech laws.

    If someone was going to prosecute Dylan for something it should have been a long time ago when he went electric.

    Butthurt Croats would be a terrific name for a rock band.

    Seriously. They should be asking for an apology for Self Portrait. He owes us all for that one.

    I just wanted to add with the Freedom of Speech, the people of Westboro Baptist Church profit. They are allowed to spew such vile hate speech but when they incite hate and aggression towards them, they sue and win which allows their organization to grow. It's an abuse of Freedom of Speech and perhaps some limitations are needed.

    We have anti-vilification laws which limit our right to hate speech, but I don't see them as a problem. Racists/homophobes/bigots are still easy to recognise without them having to spell out their most vile opinions. I worked with someone who was constantly making racist remarks and I'm glad I was able to tell her she can't say those things in front of me rather than trying to argue with her. Nothing I said was going to change her opinion, she would just shout over the top of me like most people who can't back up their opinions.
