monoski: Why do people even listen to musicians when they are not singing? The chances of any of these idiots making any significant contributions to political or social dialogue are pretty slim.

Because he's all to eager for our country to go to war, but dodged the draft himself?

I know the guy does a lot of good for wounded veterans, but he's as fake as John Wayne.

Why has anyone ever listened to Ted Nugent at any point in time?    He's always been a gimmick and a hack musician.    There's a reason why he's trying to distract you with his politics and songs about raping underage girls ... he doesn't want you to notice how mind-numbingly mediocre his  chops are.

The man is always knee deep in about a half dozen charities and projects at any given time.  The MASSIVE amount of charity work that he does both for the locals and for the troops more than makes up for what he did and didn't do in the 70s.  Ted Nugent is (or at least has become) a great American.  And he puts on a HELL of a show.  Stranglehold, Cat Scratch Fever, Wango Tango, Wang Tang Sweet Poontang, Dog Eat Dog, Hey Baby:  those are all great songs that ROCK.  And that doesn't even include Damn Yankees who are sorely missed.

Some singers only sing to get a message out.  Jello Biafra sure as shiat isn't a singer for his pleasant tonal quality.

Just playing devil's advocate here, but that's a fallacy.  Ad hominem.

What is your job?  What's your career?  Are your opinions and thoughts outside of that career insignificant?

Judge the person and their thoughts on their own merits.  Dismissing someone simply because they're a celebrity is kind of lazy.

Unfortunately, they have wider reach and greater audiences for their ideas.  So while I sympathize with your sentiment, it's a little wrong-headed.


I was not suggesting anyone should listen to me and not musicians. Take Ted for example, his logic and beliefs seem to come straight from an NRA pamphlet he does not appear to be bringing any original or meaningful ideas to the conversation.

Truth is timeless.  The second amendment is as relevant now as it ever was, and for the same reasons.

Hannity is knee deep in a ton of charities too. Of course, those charities don't really seem to do much, other than pad out salaries for their office staff, their consultants, and give less than 10% of their take to the troops, but hey, it's a charity, right?

If you want to talk about great shows, you might want to catch ZZ Top. THOSE guys still put on a great show. The last time I saw them on tour was with Aerosmith, and I felt bad Steven Tyler having to follow them. Ted is...well...he's pretty much where Kid Rock is going to be in another 20 years. Ted has some fans, but in order to get any sort of interest, he has to drum up interest, and right now, Ted does so by being a controversy magnet. It's less about "freedom" than a sales strategy, and an attempt to stay in the limelight, despite not really doing much until he could attach himself to a "cause" to essentially cash in ancillary interest.

Call me when he hits even half of what Jimmy Buffett has done for tours. Jimmy doesn't have to generate controversy, he just tours and puts out albums. Cripes, let me know when he hops on tours half as hard as ZZ Top. The man has been coasting for years, and spouting crazy is just a way to keep in the limelight without having to do much real work, and it gives him something to point people at other than his statutory rape and pants besh*tting.

It's not freedom that people despise, it's the chest thumping to distract folks from his own smirking history of dodging away from the very responsibility that he claims to love so much. He's perfectly fine to send other folks to die, so long as he can hunt and play the tough guy when he's safely at home. It's not his "freedom" that folks find objectionable, it's his doucheyness and his smugness for being a swollen turd of human being. That the party is reaching out to a self confessed pedophile says something about the current state of the party. That he's a chickenhawk and proud of that pants crapping only makes it worse.

If being a freedom lover means loving Ted Nugent, I will do everything I can to make us into North Korea.

I would add actors to that list as well.

Meanwhile Nugent is getting all the free publicity he can muster. Your average person doesn't scour internet forums and news sites on a regular basis, they do however glance at the occasional headline as they check their Email and see what's new on Facebook. They see Ted Nugent this and Ted Nugent that, next thing you know they're thinking, "I used to like that one song of his, maybe I should see what he has on iTunes."  Cha-Ching.

He's done a lot more for the troops than most of us, and I'd suspect, the average non-combat enlisted man.  Just because he didn't go to the jungle doesn't mean he didn't do his part.

Yes.  It does.  He's a pants-shiatting draft dodger.  That's the part he didn't do, the going to war thing.

I'm not sure it's fair to lump unicorns in with pixies.

Well, I was mostly just going for things equally rare and potentially mythical.

Being able to tolerate the smell and feeling for a week COULD be some sort of talent, I suppose.

The difference is that Nugent is not crazy. He's a political extremist and very likely a sociopath.

Ted Nugent reminds me of this one stripper, she was easily in her 40's, had on far more make up than the other girls, mostly foundation type stuff, in an effort to hide her age, a really wicked C-Section scar, the worst set of teeth I've ever seen on a stripper, and gave the most uncomfortable lap dance I'd ever had. Granted, I was pretty plastered from the pint of Southern Comfort I drank before going into the club, but still, there was just something unsettling and mildly nauseating about it. The worst part was, she actually tried the "I'm just doing this to pay my way through college." Routine. Sure, there was a part of me that wondered just how far she'd go for an extra $50, but I just couldn't work up the desire.

Anyways, that's what Ted Nugent reminds me of.

But raising money, entertaining deployed troops, donating to auctions, running a camp for underprivileged children, contributing to law enforcement, donating massive amounts of meat to poor people, and the thousands of other acts of philanthropy ARE talents, which would have been wasted if he had been sniped by Charlie in 1973. More people benefit from him now than by a potential enlistment thirty five years ago, where he would have contributed nothing.

So because he would have contributed nothing then but does now obviates his past misdeed?  What about that bullet he would have taken which would have saved that other fellow from dying?  You know... the one who was going to provide us with free renewable energy via an amazing invention had he lived?  See, if you can find a way to ignore his past (which would be perhaps forgivable had he ever claimed the act and admitted he was wrong) then I can come up with hypotheticals.  He's a chickenhawk and those are execrable to myself and many others.

He's still a racist nut-job shiatstain.

the part where he said if he did have to go to Vietnam he would've shot all the hippies that got drafted.

you know. murder US soldiers. how very patriotic.
