Our politicians are listening to someone who advises people to only use two squares of TP.

I don't know who is more stupid . . . the politicians, or Sheryl Cow

Hmmmmm- You know, there's been this smell ever since Obama got elected. It smells like..... oh! wait! it's the smell of HYPOCRISY! " It's really only a matter of time before more people wake up and figure out what that smell is! Just hope the DEMOCRAT/HOLLYWOOD/HYPOCRITES don't ruin our country too much before these 4 years are up!!!!!!! Just an FYI- Northern Trust had committed to sponsor these tournaments LONG before things went south. They can't get out of it even if they wanted to! Just telling the truth

Wow. That's the most hypocritical statement I've heard all day: you don't like the vicious spending of taxpayer money, but you're okay with what Northern Trust pulled?

Just an FYI, people aren't angry that Northern Trust sponsored the tournament as per their contractual agreement to throw the event, people are angry that they spent FAR MORE ON THE TOURNAMENT than the fundraiser PORTION of the event even began to bring in. I run a nonprofit and, let me tell you, that PGA Tournament would have been chalked up as a loss in our books if we'd thrown en event like that. It wasn't a fundraiser, it was a ridiculously huge advertisement for the company to bring in wealrhy patrons.

Did they do something illegal? No. Did they do something unscrupulous? Yes.

Is Sheryl Crow a greedy b****? Yes.

And, before you jump to conclusions based on the fact that I'm simply arguing with you, I'm a fiscal conservative. So don't pull that "wah wah liberals! wah wah" crap with me.

Take the money and run, Sheryl. Our own government does the same as Northern Trust bank did, and they use our tax money to do it. They take "business trips", have parties, buy parts for the military at inflated prices and rip us off every year. I pay thousands of dollars in taxes every year and receive only a few hundred back on my yearly return. Where that money goes is a mystery. She is wrong in thinking that the radio stations should pay the artists for their songs, but she has the right to accept money to perform, no matter where the money comes from. If I was offered $100,000 to play a gig, I'd jump on it in a second. I don't care if the money came from Texas or taxes, cranks or banks, or even my momma. Just as long as the check clears.

Firstly, if she knew about the money/bank issue, she was wrong to perform.......no excuse.

Secondly, here in Canada, we have something called SOCAN.....we pay for playing songs in bars, nightclubs, etc.

They even have people going around to establishments to see what they are playing music wise.....total scam...money grabber.

GOD BLESS LIMEWIRE, TORRENTS, ETC.....

Wow, So every time one of your songs is played you should get paid. Get over yourself Miss crow. Why don't you give the hard woking tax payers the money back that you recieved last week. You should be ashamed of yourself.

I met Sheryl at a party. We chatted some, and as we chatted I detected the strong odor of BO and swamp-ass emanating from her. I quickly ended the conversation and left her smelly gag-inducing presence for fear of having any of her stank odors attach themselves to my clothing.

what is she thinking??????????? People try so hard to get their songs on the radio and i'm sure she was one of them in her breakout era. this would take away free radio and what about the small stations that can't afford to pay out.
this is why there are labels to pay them. enough said. what a greedy b*&%h. maybe have her pay us taxpayers for the bailout/blood money she just accepted

It is a good arrangement, the stations help the artists by popularizing their music and the songwriters get royalties from the stations for the airplay of their creations. Guess that isn't good enough for Ms. CashStrong.
