If your insane gun collecting neighbor said he'd be dead or in jail within a year if you won an election would you be worried about your family?

    I don't like Nugent either, but what he said doesn't mean we should all go out and vote for Obama this year.

    So, please, let's stop trying to make this about Nugent, or the "war on women," or Romney's dogs, or Obama's dog lunches, or whatever else the Democrats are using to deflect attention away from Obama's record.

    This election should be about Obama's record. Let's stop trying to make it about something else that doesn't matter a damn.

    My neighbor? Luckily I never have trouble with my neighbors.

    If the neighbor did make that threat, he would not be my gun collecting neighbor anymore since the police would take his guns away for going through the trouble of making the threat.

    While I am not worried about Nugent himself, he might inspire some nut-job into carrying out his suggestion.

    Sure, guns have a visceral appeal, but what he said was wrong and stupid.
    The world runs on mass marketed stupidity ... someone pretends to be your hero and so they are your hero. It is just acting but you like how it feels.
    That is all anyone wants ... simplicity, stupidity, etc. Anything more is too taxing.

    What you have done is offer no sensible choices because you want only one answer. The correct thing is being done. Nugent is being questioned. Until such a time as he is found guilty or insane, you and others are jumping to conclusions. He has no record of violence and like it or not has the right to his opinion and free speech, radical though it may seem to some.

    Unless we were really, really good friends and I knew for sure it was a joke, I certainly wouldn't bet my kid's life on it. I don't know that I'd call the police on him, but I might just file a complaint just so if something happened there'd be a record that my family was threatened. Seriously, such talk often insights crazies even if the person who said it wasn't totally seriously. We should all be careful with what we say in that regard.

    There is nothing the Democrats won't use to deflect the spotlight away from Obama's abysmal economic performance. We are drowning in debt, millions are unemployed, businesses are strangled by government over-regulation, gas is $4 a gallon, and you want to whine about a has-been rock star. Is that what passes for wisdom where you come from?

    I don't think a person that soiled themselves for a month to avoid the military has the stuff it takes to be an actual threat.

    However, his rantings in a group with variably stable mental resources may resonate with someone with serious issues. To me this is the actual risk of what the Nugent was spouting off about.

    Also, Obama has a lot of security at all times of public exposure but there is always a way if the will is there.

    If we rounded up everyone that said something like that we'd have a bunch of people in jail. Why the upset over Nugent when the New Black Panthers openly had a bounty on Zimmerman's head and no one on the left cared?
  • 2468 Gracie ... 2012/04/20 01:40:13

    I did.
    I think that their bounty was counter productive to their own cause and it was of course wrong.
    But I am not a TV or Radio talker.

    I did appreciate how well the parents of Treyvon have proceeded while under the tremendous weight of the death of a child. They were above exemplary in my opinion.

    But, if Ted Nugent put a bounty on someone's head he would have been arrested immediately. Look at the hoopla over just a silly statement. I'd be more worried about someone like Farrakhan killing him than Ted Nugent.

    Nugent will not likely face any penalty for his statements as a normal below the radar citizen would. On the face of it he did make a thinly veiled threat but what I see is he is a chicken that talks like a lion.

    Anyone that soils themselves for a month to avoid the military is not combat ready.
    Add to that he would need to hunker down with some Geritol.

    But he can incite others with his words and this is the where I see the real danger in how he spoke. That Nugent would get on a rooftop and sniper the President is not a likely scenario in my opinion.

    I am not sure what issue you are referring to with Farrakhan.
    I believe that the right and the left see/hear opposite sides of the news.
    This is on purpose I believe to divide and conquer all of us.
    When it comes down to it I believe the Right and the Left have more in common than are different.

    I think in reality that people on the left that support themselves have more in common with the right than they know. I don't judge anyone by their far distant past because none of us are the same people we were for the most part. Some, like Bill Ayers, never evolved but most have.

    I'm sick to death of the right being accused of inciting violence when in reality 99% of it comes from the left. We had the TEA Party blamed for icons but the OWS have committed the violence and nary a word!

    Here's the Farrakhan video. Leaders are usually taken out by their own, like Malcolm X.

  • 2468 Gracie ... 2012/04/20 13:05:54

    In watching the video it is very parallel to Nugent. Farrakhan is not likely going to do any killing himself, just as Nugent is not likely to be the one looking through the scope looking to kill Obama.

    They both may incite one of their followers to violence. This can be subtle and from a one way conversation. The action hero they create will take their instructions out of their words and then you will hear on the TV, "He/She was a quiet person......I never thought they would do this....how could this happen?"

    For all the talk about that we've seen none of it. It's pretty hard to incite someone to kill just because of something one person said. The Democrats were so disappointed when they couldn't tie the Tea Party to the Gabby Giffords shooting. So, they just kept lying and saying it anyway.
