The Way it Aught to Be

  1. -You may or may not agree but I thought it is interesting-


    The Motor city mad man
    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 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 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 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 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.
    Ted Nugent

    Like Ted I also love to kill warm blooded animals with a bow. It soothes the fire in my blood somehow. It is refreshing to hear Ted not because he is saying anything new, but because he gets some press. If you watch the new you begin to think that everyone wants gun control and only us raving lunatics own firearms.
    So do like Thomas Jefferson said, go out and buy a gun and practice with it until you shoot the eye out of a gnat at 50 feet.
