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.
Diogenes: 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.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.
STRYPERSWINE: The second amendment is as relevant now as it ever was, and for the same reasons.
Soup4Bonnie: STRYPERSWINE: The second amendment is as relevant now as it ever was, and for the same reasons.The British are coming?
STRYPERSWINE: 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.
ZeroCorpse: [i3.photobucket.com image 480x640]Because he's a loser.
hubiestubert: 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...
Stinkbeard: ZeroCorpse: [i3.photobucket.com image 480x640]Because he's a loser.I can't see the whole picture, do you have the original?
Eddie Adams from Torrance: hating him is akin to hating the random crazy guy you see walking down the street yelling at people who aren't there.
STRYPERSWINE: Just because he didn't go to the jungle doesn't mean he didn't do his part.
Felgraf: n0nthing: Felgraf: n0nthing: Probably for many of the same reasons that real Libertarians hate Ron/Rand Paul, Tea Partiers, Rush, Beck, Fox News, etc.But what do you unicorns and pixies think of those people?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.
Soup4Bonnie: STRYPERSWINE: 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.
STRYPERSWINE: Everyone has different talents and abilities.
Soup4Bonnie: STRYPERSWINE: Everyone has different talents and abilities.shiatting your pants to avoid the draft isn't a talent.
STRYPERSWINE: Soup4Bonnie: STRYPERSWINE: Everyone has different talents and abilities.shiatting your pants to avoid the draft isn't a talent.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.
STRYPERSWINE: 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.
puddleonfire: Ted is trolling you all and you fell for it.
