GiantRex: Speaking to fans during an NBC-sponsored gun show, Nugent said that Obama "is attempting to re-implement the tyranny of King George that we escaped from in 1776," adding: "If you want another Concord bridge, I've got some buddies."Acts committed by King George which led to the American revolution:- Navigation Acts (blocked American trade with the French, Spanish, and Dutch)- Molasses Act (tax for the purpose of making the British export cheaper than that from the French West Indies, "encouraging" colonists to buy British)- Royal Proclamation of 1763 (restricted settlement west of the Appalachian Mountains)- Sugar Act (enacted because of colonial evasion of the Molasses Act, also known as the American Revenues Act)- Currency Act (regulated and restricted the paper money issued in the colonies for the purpose of preventing British creditors and merchants from being paid in depreciated colonial currency, resulted in a shortage of coin in the colonies and complicated the payment of debts)- Quartering Acts (primary reason for the existence of the Third Amendment)- Stamp Act of 1765 (required printed materials to be printed on special paper with an embossed revenue stamp, stamps had to be purchased with hard currency [see Currency Act], tax levied for the purpose of paying for the Seven Years' War)- Declaratory Act (asserted that parliament's authority was the same in the colonies as it was in Britain and therefore could pass laws binding on the American colonies... despite the colonies having no representation in parliament)- Townshend Acts (series of five laws enacted for the purpose of forcing the colonies to subsidize British occupation and law enforcement in the colonies)- Tea Act (tax/racket enacted for the purpose of forcing colonists to buy off the surplus of tea from the British East India Company, resulted in the infamous Boston Tea Party)- Quebec Act (extended Quebec's boundaries to the Ohio River, shutting out territorial claims of the 13 colonie ...
BronyMedic: Maybe he's just working his way up to his eventual suicide because Obama won.[img1-cdn.newser.com image 240x160]Time to nut up or shut up, Teddy Boy. Can't shiat your pants on this one.

Farkage: I'm about as pro second amendment as you can get, but why does anyone listen to this a-hole?/Mostly Democrat too. That seems to confuse people.
OhioUGrad: misanthropologist: Nugent is about as reasonable and relevant as Trump. I reckon Trump could do more long-term damage to the world with his money (assuming that it is his money, and not a whole shiatload of leveraged debt), but Nugent seems destined to go out in a blaze of idiocy, Ruby Ridge or Waco style.Maybe he can be head of security at Glenn Becks teatard utopia, then when the whole cult destroys itself, no one will be surprised or saddened.
born_yesterday: This latest outrage has given me the sudden urge to purchase one of his albums./Or shiat myself in homage, I haven't figured out which, yet
olddeegee: Headline is wrong. He could never play guitar. He can be flashy, but any kid in a Guitar Center for the first time can out play this ass.
david_gaithersburg: I did my part by voting for Ron Paul and joining the Tea Party. All of that resulted in a mini-revolution via the biggest electoral slaughter in seventy-two years. What have you done for the country lately?
schubie: The scariest thing about Ted Nugent is he claims to have never tried any drug other than "a half a can of beer."
Dr. Whoof: This man should not have weapons - he has made it clear he wants to use them to kill Americans who have done nothing more than disagree with him.
Anderson's Pooper: Alfonso the Great: That guy is the worst thing to ever come out of Michigan.He's sold more albums than Ford sold Edsels so I would disagree with your premise.
vudukungfu: I'm going to guess he doesn't get a lot of Negros at his concerts.
HAMMERTOE: Farkage: And no, nuclear weapons are not "arms" by definition.If handguns and rifles are "small arms", what are "large arms"?
People_are_Idiots: markb289: czei: "He added that Obama "hires, appoints and associates with communists,"Nugent also doesn't know the definition of "communist".Just one of the many words Ted doesn't know the meaning of. Like "Patriot" and "American".The whole premise of him being a "communist" comes from a little list of his influences (which is mentioned in his book). It's riddled with communist, socialist, Anti-Israel, and racism. Take it and do with as you will. :)Marilyn Katz: SDS, Socialist, CPUSA, CoC, Public Relations to ObamaCarl Davidson: SDS, Marxist Socialist, Professor, Small school workshop, leading activist in the Chicago break away Socialist/Communist, "New Party" founder of Progressives for Obama, DSA, Communist party split organization Committees of Correspondence CoC.Mike Klonsky: SDS Weatherman, Maoist Communist, Small schools workshop, CoCWilliam Ayers: SDS Weatherman, Communist, UC Professor who writes curriculum for teaching teachers, Small schools workshop, CoC, Hugo Chavez honored him for his Socialist educational standards introduced to Venezuela.Bernadine Dohrn: SDS Weatherman, Communist, Professor, Lawyer, CPUSA organization CoCMark Rudd: SDS Weatherman, Socialist, Professor, Progressives for ObamaTom Hayden: SDS Weatherman, Communist, Professor, Advisory Board of Progressive Democrats of America, Initiated Progressives for Obama, CoCRev.

Farkage: Philip Francis Queeg: Farkage: Philip Francis Queeg: give me doughnuts: Philip Francis Queeg: give me doughnuts: Philip Francis Queeg: You might want to check on what the phrase "bear arms" meant at the time.It meant you could own and use weapons that were equal to, or better than, those used by the most mordern army of the day.Try again.Why? I was right the first time.No, I'm afraid you were not. The phrase "bear arms" referred to formal military service. If we want to go strictly by the common definitions of the time, the 2nd Amendment should be recognized as giving the right for everyone to join the military.How do you reconcile that with the fact the founding fathers were completely against having a standing army?They weren't completely against a standing Army. The US Constitution allows a standing army."Another source of power in government is a military force. But this, to be efficient, must be superior to any force that exists among the people, or which they can command; for otherwise this force would be annihilated, on the first exercise of acts of oppression. Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive."-- Noah Webster - 1787Now I guess you'll invent something that contradicts this, no?

david_gaithersburg: thurstonxhowell: david_gaithersburg: This person was also guilty of treason.And this one....[www.biography.com image 402x402]And this one too...[www.biography.com image 402x402]Most people are aware of that. Here's the thing though: If they lost the war, they'd have been put to death.Those who did not support their war likely would have supported that result. If Ted Nugent and his buddies take up arms against the US, that's what will happen to them and many in this thread would support it.Thinking the American Revolution was necessary and proper in no way obligates me to believe that Ted Nugent's revolution is necessary and proper. Why you think it does is a mystery to me..I have a silly hang up on an odd concept called freedom, and freedom from tyranny. Sorry, but I do not share your desire to be a mere subject to huge and out of control government.
Holocaust Agnostic: HotWingConspiracy: That's a big thing the revolutards can't understand - the vast majority of Americans don't agree with their definition of tyranny or oppression.There will be no popular uprising, you're going to have to kill your friends and neighbors. This will not work out.Given that all we've got to go on is big mouthed jackasses flapping their gums and not even any noteworthy riots or organized law breaking of any sort, one wonders how you've divined anyone's criteria of actionable tyranny.

Thune: And you think Obama knows what "shall not be infringed" means?
thurstonxhowell: The law enforcement agent who will eventually get to shoot Ted Nugent dead is the luckiest man in the world.
Alfonso the Great: That guy is the worst thing to ever come out of Michigan.
Coco LaFemme: pants-shiatting coward.
