This is what freedom looks like.

Parents and students say they are outraged and offended by a proposed band name and song scheduled for a high school talent show in Boulder this evening, but members of the band, named Coalition of the Willing, said the whole thing is being blown out of proportion.

The students told ABC News affiliate KMGH-TV in Denver they are performing Bob Dylan's song "Masters of War" during the Boulder High School Talent Exposé because they are Dylan fans. They said they want to express their views and show off their musical abilities.

Then again, the first time I heard this Dylan tune, I was surprised the er... ahem... Military Industrial Complex didn't just have him offed.
Still it's a sad glimpse of what we may be dealing with for the next four years.

Among other things, here's what we can expect in the next 4 years:

- constitutional amendment banning gay marriage
- no birth control pills for unmarried women
- federal mandate: abstinence only in sex education
- federal mandate: creation science mandatory in textbooks, if not exclusive
