  • Another Repub circling the wagons and who appointed you Ted Nugents interpreter ??? If your taking that job on, then explain why he thinks he might end up in jail or dead?

    Quote Below

    "If Barack Obama is elected, I'll either be dead or in jail this time next year,"

    You said it means

    "I will die on my feet before I'll live on my knees."

    Your not even close to what he said....

    There's a big difference between Merle Haggard and Ted Nugent.

    Now Ted's on your Hero list ? I find that strange!

    I remember another Ted who made the news........

    The rest of the wagons should be here soon !

  • MsM:

    Feeling a little feisty today aren't we?

    I don't think that Ted's remarks are any different than some of the ones made by other rockers over the years.

    What would there be to investigate, he didn't make a threat, only an observation.

    Ted isn't going to do anything. He's just another right-wing war-monger coward who when given the chance to fight for his country did nothing for his country and instead ran away. I thought you military vietnam guys would be repulsed by this guy as an anti-american draft dodger. He makes George W. look like a war hero.

    According to the July 15, 1990 Detroit Free Press Magazine, Nugent claimed that he tried to avoid the draft:

    "He claims that 30 days before his draft board physical, he stopped all forms of personal hygiene. The last 10 days, he ingested nothing but Vienna sausages and Pepsi; and a week before his physical, he stopped using bathrooms altogether, virtually living inside pants caked with his own excrement, stained by his urine. That spectacle won Nugent a deferment, he says. '... but if I would have gone over there, I'd have been killed, or I'd have killed, or I'd killed all the hippies in the foxholes...I would have killed everybody.'"

    So, in summary, he can't shoot at anything that might shoot back. I don't know how any of you can find this guy anything but a pathetic un-american draft dodger.

  • Before you know it Ted will have a new Hit. The old Headbanger will soon sell many albums and he will once again be in the limelight.... Oh wait he already is!! Secret Service adore him..... Isn't that what he was going for anyways? HA and the Repubs fell for it and he got him a bunch of new aged headbangers.........Rock On!!

    So funny who they choose to be their American Idol!

    I usually don't comment on these political blogs, though I read and of course read the ridiculous comments.

    "Out of my cold dead fingers" rings a bell for me. Everyone has heard that. I heard my sweet Mom say that once about her guns. And though I know her stance on Patriotism and being a respectful American (deplorably lacking these days) I was shocked to hear those words come out of my Mother's mouth. The way that she said it too, was quiet and 'matter of fact'. Not mocking (ha!) or goading..... She was simply stating a fact. Try to invade her home and monitor her lifestyle, regulate her guns, or anything else.... and that is going to be a problem. I believe that like Ted N. & Bazookaman, she'll die a proudly standing American, rather than on her knees EVER. EVER. And with that picture in mind, I would happily do the same, should anyone EVER EVER come close to making this happen to her, or anyone in my family. A person who loves their family and the country that we live in, shouldn't really even have to blink to know this about themselves. I'll die for them, anyone of them, die trying, or go to prison, with no backward glance. Should I be investigated? Whatever. I think that is likely along the lines of what Ted N. was saying.

    Others can read into it what they figure can twist it to their own delight.

    As far as any of the rest of Ted's headbanging.... this does not mean he can't love his country. As for his past.... people change...and grow up. You want to live in his past and hold everything against him? Glass houses

  • Jessie I have heard lots of different things being said and I have heard what your Mom said. I have also heard "not over my dead body" These phases I have never heard when talking about a president.

    What Teddy Boy said was directed at Obama. That statement got the SS ears perked up and they had a chat with Teddy. I use "Teddy" I don't think he has grown up yet.

    When someone spouts off like that, people do question what the meaning is!

    Look at all the Nuts who have shot at celebrities and President's, killing and wounding some....

    If that crazy made that statement against Romney I would think he was a whacko and I wouldn't surround the wagons.

    I'm surprised you embrace negativity coming from an Aged Rocker.

    There are so many other Rock & Country Stars who do so much more for our country. They are the positive ones I embrace.

    What I see as Negativity is not what you see. That is true to form. No worries.

    LOL i have to laugh about the "head banging music". But no really you are absolutly right.

  • Nugent has done more for our US troops than Mr. Obama. He says it like it is and has never pulled any punches. I would rather listen to Nugent than Obama any day.

  • Rock On Nugent Fans..... Enjoy the music. Now maybe he will get a concert tour going for his new found fans. Next thing you know, you will ban together to have a statue put in Carl Miller Park, next to the Air Plane. Rock On !

    P.s. At the dedication don't forget to pack your Guns and don't forget if you don't have that pesty little concealed weapons permit, make sure you get one if your going to the dedication.

    I can see it now Crazy Hard Rockers showing up from all over our Country to see the "American Idol"

    Even if I were a "coward," I would at least have the decency to not want to send other people to fight in wars especially if I didn't want to fight myself.

    Zook - You are a text book right wing individual who sees that the newer generation is moving away from your debunked ideology and is very upset about it. When you say something so blatently ridiculous as "Ted Nugent is worthy of Respect" and how he is some sort of American hero, then you are soundly defeated as to Ted Nugent's so-called patriotism, you resort to ad-hominem attacks. Is "atheist" an insult now and some sort of trump card to make my points any less valid? I thought you valued a free society with a freedom of and from religion. I guess that freedom only goes as far as those who agree with your religious views.

    I really don't understand how in an advanced society such as ours, how religion is even brought up in any debate. It's really quite sad that your side even uses religious tests for all candidates for office which is clearly unconstitutional and beneath our societial values.

    This society DOES allow us freedoms of religion, non religion, etc.... That does not mean that personally, we can't prefer our own Religion. I mentioned it in my comment earlier, (maybe on another blog) because it's important to ME. I'm allowed that. As are you not required to give a darn what I prefer.

    Someone may be a coward .... but I am allowed to be pleased at behaviors later demonstrated. Those behaviors count too. Just as the cowardice earlier. Is it even possible for a person to rehabilitate, per se? To make amends?

    I'm not coming back to this blog, it's gone wayside

    Msm, you obviously have disgust for Ted Nugent and the people who "like" him.

    It's great that you feel that way! Now you know how I feel about Obama and HIS followers.

    My humble opinion :)

    -- Posted by KentuckyTransplant on Fri, Apr 20, 2012, at 2:58 PM
  • No its not disgust its disappointment. And it gave me the opportunity to have a little fun with it.

    These blogs are always so serious. I know some don't appreciate my sense of humor...Some times its a little dry, so pretty soon I will have me a rum and coke to top off the day. As the beer drinkers would ask "Is it beer time yet?" Yippee ! It's rum time for me........:>)

    Have a great weekend KT and everyone else even you Buckshot.

  • Yeah Buckshot its like after you rob someone, I'm sorry and then all is forgiven.

    No MsM, it's nothing like that. I just backspaced everything I was going to say :)

    (deep breath)

    Have yourself a good weekend, sweetie :)

  • Ted Nugent is in the wrong business. Being that full of hot air, he should be using that to power a turbine, heat homes, or send balloons into the sky. If he is going to get all red in the face, might as well get something out of it.
