TED NUGENT his thoughts and feelings
Written by Ted Nugent, the rock singer and hunter/naturalist, upon
hearing that California Senators B. Boxer and D. Feinstein denounced him
for being a "gun owner" and a "Rock Star". This was his response after
telling the senators about his past contributions to children's
charities and scholarship foundations which have totaled more than $13.7
million in the last 5 years!!
I'm a Bad American - this pretty much sums it up for me. I like big
trucks, big boats, big houses, and naturally, pretty women. I believe
the money I make belongs to me and my family, not some midlevel
governmental functionary with a bad comb-over who wants to give it away
to crack addicts squirting out babies. I don't care about appearing
I think playing with toy guns doesn't make you a killer. I believe
ignoring your kids and giving them Prozac might. I think I'm doing
better than the homeless. I don't think being a minority makes you noble
or victimized. I have the right not to be tolerant of others because
they are different, weird or make me mad. This is my life to live, and
not necessarily up to others' expectations. I know what SEX is and there
are not varying degrees of it. I don't celebrate Kwanzaa. But if you
want to that's fine; I just don't feel like everyone else should have
I believe that if you are selling me a Dairy Queen shake, a pack of
cigarettes, or hotel room you do it in English. As of matter of fact, if
you are an American citizen you should speak English. My uncles and
forefathers shouldn't have had to die in vain so you can leave the
countries you were born in to come disrespect ours, and make us bend to
your will. Get over it.
I think the cops have every right to shoot your sorry butt if you're
running from them after they tell you to stop. If you can't understand
he word 'freeze' or 'stop' in English, see the previous line. I don't
use the excuse "it's for the children" as a shield for unpopular
opinions or actions. I know how to count votes and I feel much safer
letting a machine with no political affiliation do a recount when needed.
I know what the definition of lying is, and it isn't based on the word
"is"-ever. I don't think just because you were not born in this country,
you qualify for any special loan programs, gov't sponsored bank loans,
etc., so you can open a hotel, 7-Eleven, trinket shop, or any thing
else, while the indigenous peoples can't get past a high school
education because they can't afford it.
I didn't take the initiative in inventing the Internet. I thought the
Taco Bell dog was funny. I want them to bring back safe and sane
fireworks. I believe no one ever died because of something Ozzy
Osbourne, Ice-T or Marilyn Manson sang, but that doesn't mean I want to
listen to that crap from someone else's car when I'm stopped at a red
light. But I respect your right to.
I think that being a student doesn't give you any more enlightenment
than working at Blockbuster or Jack In The Box. I don't want to eat or
drink anything with the words light, lite or fat-free on the package.
Our soldiers did not go to some foreign country and risk their lives in
vain and defend our Constitution so that decades later you can tell me
it's a living document ever changing and is open to interpretation. The
guys who wrote it were light years ahead of anyone today, and they meant
what they said - now leave the document alone, or there's going to be
I don't hate the rich. I help the poor. I know wrestling is fake. I've
never owned, or was a slave, and a large percentage of our forefathers
weren't wealthy enough to own one either. Please stop blaming me because
some prior white people were idiots - and remember, tons of white,
Indian, Chinese, and other races have been enslaved too - it was wrong
for every one of them.
I believe a self-righteous liberal Democrat with a cause is more
dangerous than a Hell's Angel with an attitude. I want to know exactly
which church is it where the "Reverend" Jessie Jackson preaches; and,
what exactly is his job function. I own a gun, you can own a gun, and
any red blooded American should be allowed to own a gun, but if you use
it in a crime, then you will serve the time.
I think Bill Gates has every right to keep every penny he made and
continue to make more. If it makes you mad, then invent the next
operating system that's better and put your name on the building. Ask
your buddy that invented the Internet to help you.
I don't believe in hate crime legislation. Even suggesting it makes me
mad. You're telling me that someone who is a minority,gay, disabled,
another nationality, or otherwise different from the mainstream of this
country has more value as a human being that I do as a white male. If
someone kills anyone, I'd say that it's a hate crime. We don't need more
laws! Let's enforce the ones we already have.
I think turkey bacon, turkey beef, turkey fake anything sucks. I
that it doesn't take a village to raise a child-it takes a parent with
the guts to stand up to the kid and spank his butt and say "NO!" when
it's necessary to do so. I'll admit that the only movie that ever made
me cry was Ole Yeller.
I didn't realize Dr. Seuss was a genius until I had a kid. I will not
frowned upon or be looked down upon or be made to keep silent because I
have these beliefs and opinions. I thought this country allowed me that
right. I will not conform or compromise just to keep from hurting
somebody's feelings. I'm neither angry nor disenfranchised, no matter
how desperately the mainstream media would like the world to believe
otherwise. Yes, I guess by some people's definition, I may be a bad
American. But that's tough.
