-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
and scholarship foundations which have totaled more than $13.7 million
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
governmental functionary with a bad comb-over who wants to give it away
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
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
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
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
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
opinions or actions.
I know how to count votes and I feel much safer letting a machine with
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
for any special loan programs, gov't sponsored bank loans, etc., so you
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
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
I think that being a student doesn't give you any more enlightenment
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
vain and defend our Constitution so that decades later you can tell me
a living document ever changing and is open to interpretation. The guys
wrote it were light years ahead of anyone today, and they meant what
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
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
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
system that's better and put your name on the building. Ask your buddy
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
hurting somebody's feelings. I'm neither angry nor disenfranchised, no
matter how desperately the mainstream media would like the world to
Yes, I guess by some people's definition, I may be a bad American. But
I thought this was awesome.

That's Ted??? Wow, he just about sums it all up! That IS awesome coming from Mr. Nugent, "The Motor City mad man..." He is an ordinary, normal American like you and I with a Big heart and a BIG wallet to donate what's inside. God bless him...

I have never been a Ted Nugent fan----But I am now. Think he'd be willing to stand up for nurses?

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.
