    So i’ve recently picked up Free So Free. Obviously picked up on the "freedom" concept right away (I got smarts real good). Then I read a few articles and "got" what the whole "freedom" concept was, and how it related to 9/11. Did not shock me in the slightest, J’s take.

    Now….without getting into a pissing match, I completely disagree with J’s sentiments in regards to freedom. You could consider me a proud flag-waver. When I’m cruising in my pickup listening to all the freedom references, I connect them with much different scenarios which allows me to hear the songs as very pro-flag-waving-USA’er.

    I dig #7. U-S-A.

    Think J would be bummed?

    Sludge….to be honest, I haven’t really followed J for a while. I was a few weeks late picking up "Free" I think. After listening to the CD a couple of times, I kept thinking "Is he playing the same song?? Is my CD player f’ed up??" Then, I read one article, and only one, where J mentioned feeling like his freedoms were gone. Personally, I don’t feel that way at all (then again, i’m far away from the northeast, where i’m sure heightened security can feel very restricting). I feel my freedoms taken away when I strive to make a better salary, and then get rewarded by higher and higher taxes. :?

    I play golf though. And I know J. likes golf.

    I think if J really cared that much about how people interpereted his lyrics/songs he’d include a little book preaching his outlooks with his album :D Also, doesn’t the whole freedom thing have something to do with his newfound passion for skydiving?

    i don’t really agree with J or shackleford. I guess i just don’t know enough about whats going on with the government to like it or feel threatened by it. maybe if i ever went to airports or watched TV i would feel differently..

    It must feel terrible for an American to realize that its not all liberty and freedom in the states. :mrgreen:
