    President Obama has been linked to the SDS through Bill_Ayers.

    President Obama has been linked to satan through Reverend Wright (somebody whom I respect).

    President Obama has been linked to gansta rap through the singer Common (somebody whom I also respect and who is no gangsta at all)

    Just as an aside now the repubs are dissing our President for being soft on pirates! WHAT?


    I recall the pix of Jack Abramoff in the Oval Office appearing on every site the web has to offer following w bush's claim that he never knew the guy.

    But I am wondering about the sacred and the profane.

    Here is Huckabee who just loves the guy:




    Here is Willard Romney with Nugent

    And Tagg Romney (what the hell kind of name is that for chrissakes?) just loves old Ted.

    When Nugent endorsed Romney in March, his son, Tagg Romney, tweeted, “Ted Nugent endorsed my Dad today. Ted Nugent? How cool is that?! He joins Kid Rock as great Detroit musicians on team Mitt!"

    And everybody knows what wonderful things Nugent has said over the last decade about anyone who challenges corporate powers or racism or poverty or.....whatever.

    But how do these attacks on associations work, anyway?

    I wanted to get into Ted Nugent and his severe mental illness rather than just his insane politics.

    And I was going to edit this gem because of the obscenity that I discovered on the web relating to an interview he did with High Times thirty-five years ago.

    But editing this obscene interview takes away from my point!

    "High Times: How did you get out of the draft?

    Ted Nugent: Ted was a young boy, appearing to be a hippie but quite opposite in fact, working hard and playing hard, playing rock and roll like a deviant. People would question my sanity, I played so much. So I got my notice to be in the draft. Do you think I was gonna lay down my guitar and go play army? Give me a break! I was busy doin’ it to it. I had a career Jack. If I was walkin’ around, hippying down, getting’ loaded and pickin’ my ass like your common curs, I’d say “Hey yeah, go in the army. Beats the poop out of scuffin’ around in the gutters.” But I wasn’t a gutter dog. I was a hard workin’, motherf***n’ rock and roll musician.

    I got my physical notice 30 days prior to. Well, on that day I ceased cleansing my body. No more brushing my teeth, no more washing my hair, no baths, no soap, no water. Thirty days of debris build. I stopped shavin’ and I was 18, had a little scraggly beard, really looked like a hippie. I had long hair, and it started gettin’ kinky, matted up. Then two weeks before, I stopped eating any food with nutritional value. I just had chips, Pepsi, beer-stuff I never touched-buttered poop, little jars of Polish sausages, and I’d drink the syrup, I was this side of death, Then a week before, I stopped going to the bathroom. I did it in my pants. poop, pi** the whole shot. My pants got crusted up.

    See, I approached the whole thing like, Ted Nugent, cool hard-workin’ dude, is gonna wreak havoc on these imbeciles in the armed forces. I’m gonna play their own game, and I’m gonna destroy ‘em. Now my whole body is crusted in poop and pi**. I was ill. And three or four days before, I started stayin’ awake. I was close to death, but I was in control. I was extremely antidrug as I’ve always been, but I snorted some crystal methedrine. Talk about one wounded motherf****r. A guy put up four lines, and it was for all four of us, but I didn’t know and I’m vacuuming that poop right up. I was a walking, talking hunk of human poop. I was six-foot-three of sin. So the guys took me down to the physical, and my nerves, my emotions were distraught. I was not a good person. I was wounded. But as painful and nauseous as it was – ‘cause I was really into bein’ clean and on the ball – I made gutter swine hippies look like football players. I was deviano. ...

    They took a putty knife to me. I got the street rats out of my hair, ate some good steaks, beans, potatoes, cottage cheese, milk. A couple of days and I was ready to kick ass. And in the mail I got this big juicy 4-F. They’d call dead people before they’d call my ass. But you know the funny thing about it? I’d make an incredible army man. I’d be a colonel before you knew what hit you, and I’d have the baddest bunch of motherf****n’ killers you’d ever seen in my platoon. But I just wasn’t into it. I was too busy doin’ my own thing, you know."

    Okay. Someone might think this is toooooooooooo easy!

    Now here are some links to this bastard's previous rants.

    Republicans still defend this psycho!

    Republican West Virginia Senate candidate John Raese came to Ted Nugent's defense at a campaign event, calling the rocker a "patriot" and saying that "it's a concern" that the Secret Service investigated after Nugent's inflammatory speech threatening President Barack Obama.

    Nugent, said Raese, according to video of the candidate's recent speech, argued that Nugent's words were merely "a figure of speech."

    It was an unusually specific figure of speech, if that was the case. At the National Rifle Association convention, Nugent told fellow gun enthusiasts that "if Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

    This Nugent is mentally ill. He has real problems.

    And if you think that I believe for one moment that Ted has never used drugs except when he became a traitor to his country you have no respect for my opinions whatsoever.

    To me, Ted Nugent represents the core of the repub party!

    Huckabee who represents the evangelists (the right wing evangelists of course) loves the guy!

    Romney appoints him to plead his case to the masses.

    Romney's kid thinks Nugent is the god of rock!

    Inhofe defends this mentally ill terrorist.

    The NRA pays Nugent money to speak for it, although the lobby has kind of backed off a bit until the furor blows over.

    I was going to get into Beck with his mental problems, and then rush and then savage and then....

    Oh who cares.

    I just thought I would point out one instance where the repubs kow-tow to their base no matter how base that base is!

    The end.




    The core of the republican part is now made up almost entirely of badly parented, self centered, self involved, amoral, uncompassionate spoiled brats like Nugent. 

    They as anti-social psychopaths. The dregs of humanity.


    And these are their good points.

    Yeah, what cmaukonen said.  

    DD, I remember watching the draft lottery on TV, and, of all my friends, being the lucky guy with the lowest number (12).  Being named Smith, there was, of course, another person at the college with the same name, and the college would often forget to send in one of our draft deferments ... usually mine.   So, I got called up for a physical on more than one occasion.  Fortunately, the college would eventually mail in my deferment papers and my 1-H status would be secure for another semester.  

    One of the physicals I was called to was in 1970 and there was a young kid from a farm who showed up, supported by his friends, with gauze wrapped around his feet, because earlier that morning, he'd taken a rifle and shot his toes off so he wouldn't have to go to Vietnam.  But y'know, given the times and the fear we all had about Vietnam, I can understand that kind of insane spur of the moment choice.  But Nugent?  What he did wasn't a momentarily insane act of desperation by a scared kid. If the story as he relates it is true, it was a  planned, calculated, self-serving act of defiance which allowed him to show his complete disdain for everyone other than himself.

    40 years later, Nugent re-writes the story so that he was not a punk hippie traitor, unwilling to serve his country in a time of war, he was an undercover patriot pretending to be a hippie so he could 'do his own thing,' which just happened to be NOT serving in the military, and at the same time saying, "Oh, I'd have been a great soldier, I'd have killed a lot of people, blah, blah, blah."  Is there anything more loathsome than a hypocritical Republican chicken-hawk?

    I was 12 or something and I sent in my deferment papers for my first year in college.

    The next year I was 309. So I did not send in my deferment papers.

    They got to 277 or so and Nixon called the draft over for the year.

    So I was free and clear by 1970!

    holy shit I was about 316 or so . I had no idea they hit 277

    No I started getting scared whilst working at the Education Library in the University. I picked up an NYT in September of that year and there was the number 277.

    Holy Cripe I thought? What the hell?

    And I had thought I was sooooooo very bright, working the system and all!

    Nixon looks so wonderful compared to Reagan and w bush and the fascists of today!

    No kidding.

    Nixon of all people, saved me!

    As despicable as this whole account is, I think the worst of it is his assertion that he woulda been a helluva soldier, probably a colonel or something, if he would have chosen to grace the military with his presence.

    What an amazing insult thrown in the face of virtually every man or woman who ever wore the uniform, and ESPECIALLY those who had no desire to be a soldier but went when called upon anyway. Nugent cut and ran. Say what he will, but Nugent can't ever un-ring that bell. He cut and ran.

    (NOTE: My Selective Service number wasn't called. I have a brother who declared as a Conscientious Objector and who gladly spent his time in alternate service. Neither of us have ever shit ourselves trying to avoid anything. Just sayin, is all.)

    To think that there's a bureaucrat in the United States Army that would consider the use or abuse of First Amendment rights in determining who is going to perform at an Army base is an insult and defiles the sacrifices of those heroes who fought for the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights," Nugent said.

    This guy has no concept of Karma whatsoever!

    The shit-for-brains Nugent explained that he voided his skull into his pants, though of course a bit of filth remains on the foul interior, and that explains what he continues to reveal about himself. And, as he continues with the revelations, his supporters and defenders reveal much about themselves. It is just a lot of shit stirring by 'right thinking Americans' who are not qualified to do anything more productive. Nugent is a jerk but it is the level of support he gets that is depressing as hell. Don't doubt for a minute that there is a fair bit of that support within the military. 

    I have no idea why Americans let them all get away with it either!

    It's quite possible I have mentioned a time or two how little regard I have for this creature of whom you write. He is an unstable, detestable coward, a mediocre guitar player at best.  I am ashamed he is a native of Michigan; he and Tim McVeigh are two of the deepest embarrassments to my state that we will have to endure forever.

    Mr. Day, please read this blog for one of the best rundowns of the lowlights of his pukifying existence. Back up links follow at the end of that blog.

    And here are a few other links that relate that not only is he a coward, but he's a lawbreaker as well.



    I do not blame Michigan on this psycho.

    I would never think to do so.

    Hell, you and Ramona are Michigan to me!


    What a link.

    I just felt that it was so clear, from the modern quotes to the older quotes that this man is not in full control of his mind.

    This is a genetic defect.

    Maybe he was poisoned by lead or a number of other poisons when he was young.

    But he is as much a speaker for the repubs as rush or savage.

    Great Link!

    And all of these folks come to defend his mental illness.

    It is as if I would defend Stalin or a number of other leftish fiends.

    Anyway, thank you for the extra link!

    Obviously Nugent was no Dylan or Robertson or Young!

    Some good news though.

    the NRA and others have kind of threw him under the bus, so to speak.

    I do not think we shall hear from this fascist, racist sickoo for awhile.
