OT- Ted Nugent the wise. LONG.
I thought these words from Ted Nugent would sum up the way alot of people feel. I got it through an email, and thought I would pass it on here.
Date: Fri, 29 Jun 2001
Written by Ted Nugent, the rock singer and hunter - naturalists, 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 compassionate.
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 to.
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 the 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
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 trouble.
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
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 believe
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 be 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.
