Combine this:

Quote:
(And I know Nugent has made racist remarks about African Americans, e.g. saying in a Rolling Stone interview "I really don't like black people very much", well, if you don't, Ted, then why did you rip off your entire guitar style from Chuck Berry?)
And this:

Quote:
Ted Nugent says Gov. Rick Perry had no problem with his decision to wear a Confederate flag shirt during his appearance at last week's inaugural ball _ and even complimented his performance.
And what do you get?

interesting that I just watched the movie Gettysburg the other night.There are different opinions on what the civil war was about,some say slavery was the main issue while others say states rights.

I've been up the east coast into New York several times and I can tell you that racism is even more pronounced in certain areas in the north,both by whites and blacks.My trip into D.C I was really treated rudely for no reason by alot of blacks,sly remarks to me at stores and gas stations while I heard some real rude things said by white New Yorkers about blacks

I know some who view it with southern pride showing the confederate flag,and some do not have racism in their mind about it,more as a cultural part of history.

But,too may times when I've seen racism as a issue,the flag is flown.Case in point...the Elian Gonzalez saga.I saw whites and blacks banded together on U.S1 protesting and the flag was flying along with signs like "one less Cuban,a million more to go" and such.Funny that blacks were a part of that flag that day because usually they see it as a symbol of racism also.

And then there were Cubans with there own signs and flying the American flag upside down,and the Cuban flag.

E pluribus unum............

When it's time to run who would you want on your side Ted Nugent types or Al Gore types?
He stands proud for who he is and a lot women are gald to watch him!
Ask Nugent's former bandmates how they enjoyed having Nugent "on their side." NOT!!!!!

BTW, Gore actually did serve in Vietnam. Nugent, OTOH, despite being in the age group to get drafted, dodged the draft. Which I wouldn't mind if it wasn't for his attitude these days. I wouldn't hold this against him if it wasn't for his jingoistic attitude these days. One doesn't find Springsteen or Neil Young being enthusiastic cheerleaders for war

It's probably a bit of both. But I reckon it was more territorial than anything. It seems implausible that such a fight would be put up over owning slaves.

Slavery or States Rights? The reasons for the Civil War are purely academic. The Confederacy was an anti-American, anti-Constitutional, traitorous enterprise. The stars and bars was it's banner. It baffles me why so many self-proclaimed patriots would regard that turncoat symbol without spitting.

That's because many of the prominent people who are speaking out against this occupation actually fought in 'Nam and know firsthand how hellish war is- especially wars of choice. The chickenhawk draft-dodgers like Ted Nugent, Dick "Other Priorities" Cheney, and the rest of the lot just think it's fun and lucrative to play GI Joes with less fortunate people.

I think we are spoiling it for the "I love Nug" crowd we read from the start of this thread.

How do you know he dodged the war? Gore served but, with his attuide these days he would not be the one I would run with my opinion. I didn't mention going to war, I meant if we have to run for cover on our own soil. I don't belive most of us are for war just for defending our right and freedom!!

Ted is not timid on speaking his mind. hes consistant with his views, Id vote for him just for that. he doesnt do polls. he has a love for this country, you know where he stands. how many people have you folks helped like he has? any of you gone to visit the troops? at least you can understand his words, not like Ozzie.
