Ted Nugent - A Real Piece of Work (shit)

When I heard what Ted Nugent called the victims of gun violence who had been invited as guests to the SOUA on Tuesday February 12th, I thought, What A Piece of Shit, this man is. There seems to be no compassion, no empathy and no common sense coming from the NRA these days. NONE! I have heard that many members belonging to this club of crackers are claiming they would like to see some changes made to avert the murderous rampages of violent gun owners in order to bring sanity back and protect our children and law abiding citizens. But if these people really do believe there needs to be some changes made, why do they remain members? Even after the likes of Ted Nugent’s insane comment, calling the victims of gun violence, PROPS FOR THE WHITEHOUSE and especially their whacked out leader LaPierre’s latest manifesto, preaching violence: “NRA's Wayne LaPierre: “Be afraid, be very afraid” was released, I say to them:
By retaining membership with LaPierre’s NRA, you are telling the world you care nothing about keeping our children and our nation safe! Perhaps, you are just mouthing concern about gun violence but in actuality you agree with the Nut-Balls that have become the face of this nefarious club, you still pay dues to! Please watch the video featuring a clip from the Ed Schultz Show and President Obama's poignant call to give Gun Victims A Voice. thinkingblue

NRA's Wayne LaPierre: Be afraid, be very afraid
By Steve Benen

Way back in 1993, there was an episode of "The Simpsons," in which Grandpa Simpson wrote a letter to the White House. Apropos of nothing, ol' Abe wanted the president to eliminate three states from the union because there are "too many states nowadays."

Grandpa added in his letter, "I am not a crackpot."

I thought of this while reading the latest missive from the National Rifle Association's Wayne LaPierre, who had a lengthy opinion piece in the Daily Caller yesterday, explaining why Americans should be terrified enough to want to buy lots and lots of firearms.

During the second Obama term, however, additional threats are growing. Latin American drug gangs have invaded every city of significant size in the United States. Phoenix is already one of the kidnapping capitals of the world, and though the states on the U.S./Mexico border may be the first places in the nation to suffer from cartel violence, by no means are they the last.

The president flagrantly defies the 2006 federal law ordering the construction of a secure border fence along the entire Mexican border. So the border today remains porous not only to people seeking jobs in the U.S., but to criminals whose jobs are murder, rape, robbery and kidnapping. Ominously, the border also remains open to agents of al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations.

Wait, it gets worse. LaPierre also envisions mass looting, debt riots, and the collapse of law-enforcement agencies. It's the kind of news you don't hear from President Obama -- who, of course, wants to disarm you for his own nefarious purposes -- and his "'mainstream' media enablers."

And then there's LaPierre's kicker: "These are perils we are sure to face -- not just maybe. It's not paranoia to buy a gun."

"Paranoia"? Who said anything about "paranoia"? This is simply a piece from a powerful right-wing lobbyist warning of Latin-American gangs, terrorists, and rioters, each of which are coming to attack you -- "not just maybe." Why would anyone think this sounds like "paranoia"?

Perhaps for the same reason Abe Simpson understood he might sound like a "crackpot"?
