How Can Ya Not Love Ted Nugent!

Filed under: Opinion — olbroad @ 6:07

Independence is a beautiful thing; dependency isn’t

You only deserve what you earn. No one owes you a thing.

Amazingly, many Americans are dumbfounded and utterly confused over these simple truisms.

Because of the culture of entitlement many Americans have embraced since the mid-1960s, we have created generations of Americans addicted to the government handout machine.

They are ballast in this experiment in self-government, solidly in the liability column simply because they choose to be.

Even more amazing are the politicians who would further want to entrench into our cultural and economic fabric the very system that has stripped people of their work ethic, pride and self-esteem.

The pathetic so-called Great Society of President Johnson didn’t eliminate poverty as he claimed it would. Rather, it destroyed individuals, families, businesses and entire communities while flushing hundreds of billions of hard-earned tax dollars down the drain.

Only a hapless idiot or bottom-feeding politician trolling for votes would dare advocate more destruction through more bloated and ineffective government programs. Yet they do, calling for universal health care for all Americans, including many who obviously don’t care about their health.

Nothing is free. Nothing. Someone has to pay for universal health care. That someone is you, the taxpayer. Call the newspaper and leave a message for me if you believe you are not taxed enough.

It sickens me when I hear a disconnected, soulless political advocate make the socialist claim that because America is a wealthy country we should redistribute earned income from the hardest of workers to pay for the health care of Americans who cannot afford health insurance or who choose to spend their money on other things.

The latter opt for things like blingbling, custom wheels, fashionable attire, I-pods, stereos, cable TV, deadly fast food, movies, pets, tobacco, alcohol, drugs, meth and hair-dos, ad nauseaum.

Of course, with such expenses they can’t make ends meet. They think waste and gluttony are their rights. God help us all.

All Americans should benefit from our capitalistic health care system. Our health care system is envied around the world because it has been fueled by profit.

If you want better health care, more effective treatments and better high-octane medicine, make it more profitable for the companies that produce and provide it.

Up by their bootstraps

Americans addicted to the welfare state need to take stock in their own lives and pull themselves up by their bootstraps just as their forefathers did.

If one job doesn’t pay the bills, work two jobs. If you want health insurance and don’t believe you can afford it, disconnect the cable television, quit smoking and drinking, get rid of cell phones, don’t eat at restaurants or go to the movies, sell your bling, get rid of your pets, etc.

You will be amazed at what you can afford if you prioritize. Only the guilty need feel guilty.

In conjunction with Americans taking stock of their own lives, our politicians should pass tough tort reform that will limit how much damage manipulative legal sharks can continue to do to our health care system.

Lawyers, not doctors and others in the health care industry, are to blame for the high cost of health insurance.

I fully believe that 99 percent of Americans who do not have health insurance could do much in their own lives to pay for it if they cut out the excess and actually cared about their health.

Taxing hard-working Americans even more to pay for the health care of careless others ultimately will erode the high standard of health care Americans enjoy.

Socialized medicine sucks. Those who advocate socialized medicine suck even more.

Pay your own way. It’s the American way.

  3. Ted Nugent the darling of the lunatic fringe. A great champion of our rights! A great champion of the individual. A great champion of America. I am so glad that he has not been stripped of his work ethic, pride and self esteem.
    To misuse and misquote Elizabeth Barrett Browning: How can ya not love Ted Nugent, LET ME COUNT THE WAYS.
    Actually one way should illustrate:
    1: Try these lyrics from Wang Dang Sweet Pootang (several albums 70s and 80s:

    That Nadine, what a teenage queen
    She lookin’ so clean, especi’lly down in between; what I like

    She come to town; she be foolin’ around
    a puttin’ me down as a rock-and-roll clown
    It’s all right

    Wang Dang Sweet Poontang

    Wang dang, what a sweet poontang
    a shakin’ my thang as a rang-a-dang-dang in the bell

    She’s so sweet when she yanks on my meat
    Down on the street you know she can’t be beat
    What the hell

    Wang Dang Sweet Poontang

    And Chuck Berry was censored for My Ding-a-ling.

  4. I’ve no doubt you’ve never done or said anything in YOUR past that wouldn’t stand up to scrutiny, have you.

    (feel the sarcasm here)

  5. Certainly have, but I didn’t make it an international career as a media star.

  6. If truth is truth, does it really matter who said it? Hmmmm???

    Comment by olbroad — May 22, 2007 @ 8:17

  7. Yes it does matter who brings in the message. Mr. Nugent’s concerts and albums pandered to some of the worst of human behaviors, seeking out the lowest common denominator. This country has been going around and around about standards of behavior, and what is to be allowed or not allowed. Free speech versus community standards. His stand on gun ownership receives wide support. He supports low taxes and laissez faire government. So for his version of Politically Correct we are supposed to ignore his being a media star in conflict with the community standards that exist in his community? Can you say double standard?

    Comment by Doug — May 22, 2007 @ 7:29

  8. Yes, and how long ago was that again? Would it surprise you to know that at one time, I considered myself pro choice? I have never approved of abortion, but I did have the mindset of “my body, my choice”. I’ve learned better. We’ve all gone through changes over the years, and Mr. Nugent is no different.

    AND, I also support gun rights, low taxes, and getting the government out of my life. I don’t need a nanny, and neither does anyone else in this country. Unless, of course, you can afford one for your kids…then YOU get to pay for it!

  9. ouch. such an ignorant post.

  10. Ted Nugent is a typical douchebag right-wing chickenhawk pussy. He has no problem spouting his militaristic fascist rhetoric “supporting” the troops in their illegal war of aggression, but when he was asked to serve in a different illegal war, Vietnam, he went to extraordinary lengths to avoid it, not bathing for a month and showing up at the draft board in jeans encrusted with dried urine and feces. But he got his deferment!! What a cowardly cunt. I hope he lives long enough to find out that 9/11 was orchestrated by his beloved right-wing government. Maybe the shock will kill him and I can then go take a massive shit on his grave.
