Ted Nugent, the rock singer and hunter/naturalist upon hearing that California Senators Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein denounced him for being a "gun owner" and a "Rock Star", wrote this 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 mid level governmental functionary with a bad comb-over who wants to give it away to crack addicts squirting out babies.

I think playing with toy guns doesn't make you a killer. I believe ignoring your kids and giving them Prozac might.

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 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 a 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 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 anything else, while the indigenous peoples can't get past a high school education because they can't afford it.

I thought the Taco Bell dog was funny.

I want them to bring back safe and sane fireworks.

I think that being a student doesn't give you any more enlightenment than working at Blockbuster or Jack In The Box.

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'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.

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 than 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.

This is a fun piece. It’s been attributed to Rush Limbaugh, George Carlinn, Denis Leary and of course Ted Nugent, but apparently the original author wrote it a couple years ago and posted it on Who knows... maybe they were quoting one of the other guys.

No matter who wrote it, I still love the line “I didn't realize Dr. Seuss was a genius until I had a kid.” hehehehe

I have that saved in my email from over a year ago. It was attributed to Ted.

No matter who wrote it, it's well said. And the truth hurts!

quote:So, who did write it? It originally appeared in September, 2000 on the Free Republic message board under the title "I Am A Bad Republican." The author goes by the screen-name of "Bootyist-Monk," but provides no other personal details except that he writes for a living.

So, this is not the angry rebuttal of an outraged rocker to two trash-talking senators, but rather the work of an unknown conservative message board poster. Does this revelation make it less funny or outrageous?

This article keeps getting longer, more stuff added each time someone else "writes" it.

This is just like the article that was written by a retired nun on the east coast, or was she a school girl from the midwest, or was she (insert how you got the email from a friend) about how immigrants must adapt after 9-11. Who knows who wrote it?

Who cares?


Justice has never been a part of the green agenda.
