And you are all bashing him why? What has he ever done to you? The man minds his own buisness, makes a living, hasn't killed, raped, robed, insulted anyone. He sings and goes back to his own little island. sure in jealous, but I like a couple of his songs,,,, I mean , who doesnt smile when they hear " why don't we get drunk and screw " !!!!?????

I don't care for his political views, but some of his old stuff it still my favorites. I don't care for Ozzy's behaviour either, but I still love Black Sabbath.

Jimmy Buffet is financing the Save the Manatee's club. He is trying to get powerboating outlawed in Florida. That's why he is not liked here.

Just ask Mean Dean

Maybe you Florida guys should start a save the runway signs movement and stop him from flying. That sign could've been a mother and now there is a baby sign somewhere that can't be breast fed.
The insanity has to stop!!!

I have been a Buffet fan for a long time, but from how I understand you guys explaination of his politics, I don't feel right helping him support his idealisms. To think of a Powerboating Mecca like Florida and the Keys being strangled by ever tightening laws, is kinda sickening. I'm still gonna listen to his music (A Pirate looks at 40 is becoming a theme song) but I'm not buying anymore,unless he rights a sequal to "Where the hell is Joe Merchant" that was a great book.
