    RANT - I guess I\'m a bad American because I agree! - RANT

    If any of this offends you just don't finish reading it or don't
    forward it to anyone but I thought it was worthy of reading.

    Written by Ted Nugent, the rock singer and naturalist, 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.

    I'm not a big fan of Ted Nugent but he has NEVER beat around the bush. He thinks it, he says it. And I think safe and sane fireworks should be brought back as well, damnit!

    Yup good ol' Ted..... he says it like it is and I admire him for that. He's got lots of opinions I agree with because he's actually extremely correct and on the money 90% of the time....

    I have always liked Ted and respected the way he shares his opinins. He doesn't just yell out in an angre voice, he says things in a way that make you think about what he is saying, even if you disagree.

    I agree with all of the above. Thank you Wes for posting and thank you Ted for the letter.

    Its about FU*KING time someone read my mind. I got expelled from school for expressing my exact same feelings. I'm glad that someone that wasnt just a plain ol guy finally said something. I feel the exact same way about the sh!t above, but when I expressed myself I was kicked out of school for exactly 186 school days. A complete term of 365 days out of school. And then they expect me to go back in a year and finish school a year behind my friends B.S.!! Then they tell me I cant drop out even after I can go back to school... THE HELL I CANT!!! sorry for somewhat changing the post but the subject has been on my mind lately and I just read this and couldnt stop myself.

    Actually found out this is one of those cool urban legends..

    While Ted Nugent didn't write this he has publicly endosed it as somthing he completly agrees with.
