Canadian Censorship

The Canadian Broadcast Standards Council has decided that Canadians are not mature enough to listen to the unedited version of Dire Straits’ 1980s recording of ‘Money for Nothing’ because the song uses the word faggot three times.

Well, maybe they need to look over the following songs for content:

Billy Joel’s classic ‘Only the Good Die Young’ because it speaks ill about catholic school girls.
“Catholic girls start much too late, Aw but sooner of later is comes down to fate, I might as well be the one.”

A large portion of rap music for the overuse of the “N-word”

Randy Newman’s “Short People”
“They got little hands
Little Eyes
They walk around
Tellin’ great big lies…”

Matt Welch at says it better than I could when he writes:
“Please don’t ever tell me Canada is a more enlightened country that the U.S. and A.”
