REO Speedwagon and Styx have toured together before, and are beginning doing so again very soon. Having seen them both on several occasions, I can recommend them very highly.

Musically and lyrically their songs are entertaining and uplifting. You like straight-up rock & roll? REO and Styx are for you.

I saw that one tour date brings them very close to my town, so I started making plans to see them again.

And then I saw who they were bringing with them – Ted Nugent.

I am a fan of excellent guitar-work (ref: REO & Styx). Nugent is a very talented guitarist, but he doesn’t have very many decent songs.

His most popular ones (“Cat Scratch Fever,” “Yank Me Crank Me,” Wango Tango,” and “Jailbait”) tend to have the same simple message: “I would like to have sex with as many women as possible.”

Repetitive and, therefore, boring. (Nugent fans will certainly disagree.)

Crunchy guitar & sex messages always sell well with teen boys and with juvenile adults. They didn’t trip my trigger even when I was a teen boy. Again, boring.

Ted loves the limelight almost as much as Donald Trump, almost as much as he likes to talk/sing about sex.

Unfortunately, Nugent hasn’t a ‘hit’ since “Wango Tango” rocketed all the way up to #86 in 1980.

In the intervening decades Ted has kept himself in the news by being vehemently pro-gun, and as controversial as possible. .

Normally I wouldn’t care – you know – ‘freedom of speech’ and the ‘2nd amendment’ and all. Go for it Ted.

Nugent has always been a little ‘wack’, but in recent years he has really begun to lose it…

During the primaries in 2008, when Democrats were still deciding between Hillary Clinton & Barack Obama, Nugent, at one of his concerts, waived what appeared to be a semi-automatic machine gun, and incited the crown by saying “Obama’s a piece of s***, and I told him to suck on my machine gun.”

He said some equally unflattering/unprintable things about Hillary.

Classy.

In a country where both Presidents and presidential candidates have been assassinated, you don’t make death threats. You don’t even make loosely-veiled death threats, or ‘I-was-just-joking’ death threats.

This is not patriotic and not funny. In fact it is the OPPOSITE of patriotic.

‘Patriotic’ is voting, and supporting everybody’s right to vote.

‘Not patriotic’ is saying “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

The video where he says this was on the NRA website only days ago, but has since been taken down.

In light of these comments, the commanders at Fort Knox Army Base in Kentucky have decided Nugent is not a logical entertainment choice for military men and women.

We know who the patriots are: The soldiers who are trained to, without question, follow the orders of the Commander in Chief.

OUR Commander in Chief.

We also know who the classless headline-grabbers are.

Karl Rove is cranking up the old Muck Machine in preparation for the 2012 election. His Super-Pac has tens of millions of dollars, donated by a handful of billionaires with the full knowledge that it will be used to slime President Obama, and any other Democrats in the line of fire.

Remember Rove’s motto: “Scare people, then scare them again. It doesn’t matter if it is total bulls*** or meaningless drivel that sort of ‘sounds sinister,’ as long as it scares people.”

The Rove motto is now a standard part (page one) of the Republican playbook.

People, even otherwise-reasonable people, will begin to believe some of it, because they ‘heard it somewhere’ before. Chances are you already accept some of the below as ‘truth.’

So now we present a partial list of the crap the GOP is regurgitating about Barack Obama. (Note the repeated use of the word ‘czar,’ to emphasize just how communist he really is. Try not to get confused, because he is also Marxist, socialist and Muslim.)

These were sent to me by a GOP operative, so bad spelling and grammar is left ‘as is.’ I have added a few notes, and in parenthesis.

Try to read these without gagging….

————————-

He (Obama) refused to disclose who donated money to his election campaign, as other candidates had done.

He received endorsements from people like Louis Farrakhan, Muramar Kaddafi and Hugo Chavez.

He was a total newcomer and had absolutely no experience at anything except community organizing. (I guess, if you don’t include that whole ‘U.S. Senator’ thing)

He chose friends and acquaintances such as Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn who were revolutionary radicals.

His voting record in the Illinois Senate and in the U.S. Senate came into question. (What on Earth does this mean?)

He refused to wear a flag lapel pin and did so only after a public outcry. (In this case ‘public’ means Fox network. The GOP never mentions the many times ‘W’ didn’t wear a flag pin, presumably because it is a totally phony issue.)

People started treating him as a Messiah and children in schools were taught to sing his praises. (The GOP really hates that Obama has any popularity, and they often use ‘Messiah’ to imply he feels he is like Jesus. Remember, the only president worthy of worship is Reagan.)

He stood with his hands over his groin area for the playing of the National Anthem and Pledge of Allegiance. (True. One time, early in his presidency, Obama stood at attention, hands folded in front of him, listening to the anthem. Leave it to the GOP to translate this into ‘groin area.’)

He surrounded himself in the White House with advisors who were pro-gun control, pro-abortion, pro-homosexual marriage and wanting to curtail freedom of speech to silence the opposition. (He also has advisors who are pro-life, and has done nothing to restrict gun ownership. Curtailing freedom of speech and silencing opposition? – Are Fox news, Rush, Beck, etc. still on?)

He said he favors sex education in kindergarten, including homosexual indoctrination.

His personal background was either scrubbed or hidden and nothing could be found about him. (Scrubbed or hidden? He wrote two books about his background, which you can find in any library. Republicans have gone through his personal history with a proctoscope, and are mostly upset because there nothing truly controversial. – Ref: ‘Birth Certificate’)

The place of his birth was called into question, and he refused to produce a birth certificate. (Proof positive that no amount of evidence will quash this specious argument.)
He had an association in Chicago with Tony Rezco – a man of questionable character and who is now in prison and had helped Obama to a sweet deal on the purchase of his home.

George Soros, a multi-billionaire Marxist, spent a ton of money to get him elected. (Multi-billionaire Marxist – I love this!)

He started appointing White House Czars that were radicals, revolutionaries, and even avowed Marxist /Communists. (Czar, Marxist, communist – triple play!)

He stood before the Nation and told us that his intentions were to “fundamentally transform this Nation” into something else. (???)

He trained ACORN workers in Chicago and served as an attorney for ACORN. (ACORN made the unforgivable mistake of registering people to vote. The GOP wants as few voters as possible.)

He appointed cabinet members and several advisors who were tax cheats and socialists. (The first question on the application is “Are you a tax cheat and/or socialist?”)

He appointed a Science Czar, John Holdren, who believes in forced abortions, mass sterilizations and seizing babies from teen mother. (Pretty much all made-up. Except for the ‘czar’ thing)

He appointed Cass Sunstein as Regulatory Czar who believes in “Explicit Consent,” harvesting human organs without family consent and allowing animals to be represented in court, while banning all hunting. (A human organ harvesting Czar. You KNOW some people believe this.)

He appointed Kevin Jennings, a homosexual and organizer of a group called Gay, Lesbian, Straight, Education Network as Safe School Czar and it became known that he had a history of bad advice to teenagers. (Eeek! A homosexual czar!)

He appointed Mark Lloyd as Diversity Czar who believes in curtailing free speech, taking from one and giving to another to spread the wealth, who supports Hugo Chavez. (There is nothing ‘diversity’ people like more than curtailing free speech.)

Valerie Jarrett, an avowed Socialist, was selected as Obama’s Senior White House Advisor. (Advisor? Are you sure she isn’t a ‘czar?’)
Anita Dunn, White House Communications Director, said Mao Tse Tung was her favorite philosopher and the person she turned to most for inspiration.

He appointed Carol Browner, a well known socialist as Global Warming Czar working on Cap and Trade as the nation’s largest tax. (Cap and Trade was created by conservative Republicans.)

He appointed Van Jones, an ex-con and avowed Communist as Green Energy Czar, who since had to resign when this was made known. (Czar, czar, czar)

Tom Daschle, Obama’s pick for Health and Human Services Secretary could not be confirmed because he was a tax cheat.

 

He bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia.

He traveled around the world criticizing America and never once talking of her greatness. (Yes, he has never said anything nice about America!)

His actions concerning the Middle East seemed to support the Palestinians over Israel, our long time ally. (“Seemed to” is too soft. Couldn’t you just say he wants to bomb Israel, since you are just making this stuff up anyway?)

He took American tax dollars to resettle thousands of Palestinians from Gaza to the United States.

He upset the Europeans by removing plans for a missile defense system against the Russians. (Which Europeans were upset? Name one.)

He played politics in Afghanistan by not sending troops early-on when the Field Commanders said they were necessary to win. (Yes, it took time to transfer some troops from the totally useless Bush war in Iraq.)

He started spending us into a debt that was so big we could not pay it off. (The GAO says his health care proposal would ultimately save money.)

He took a huge spending bill under the guise of stimulus and used it to pay off organizations, unions, and individuals that got him elected. (The spending bill wasn’t about ‘wages,’ it was about jobs, to help us out of the Bush-made recession. The side bonus purpose was to fix our crumbling infrastructure.)

He took over insurance companies, car companies, banks, etc. (Oops, this was a Bush initiative.)

He took away student loans from the banks and put it through the government. (…lowering interest rates students are being charged.)

He designed plans to take over the health care system and put it under government control. (No, he designed plans for private industry to insure all people. That is why insurance companies do not object to the proposals.)

He claimed he was a Christian during the election and tapes were later made public that showed Obama speaking to a Muslim group and ‘stating’ that he was raised a Muslim, was educated as a Muslim, and is still a Muslim. (You must have an IQ in the mid 50’s to still believe the ‘Muslim’ thing, but many do.)

He set into motion a plan to take over the control of all energy in the United States through Cap and Trade. (I repeat, ‘Cap and Trade’ was created by conservative Republicans.)

He finally completed his transformation of America into a Socialist State, people woke up— but it was too late. (Fun Fact:  Private enterprise is no longer allowed in the U.S.!)

The Super-Pac smear-machine is pouring millions of dollars into finding new ways to scare you, with more and more creative ‘discoveries’ about Obama.

Be afraid. Be VERY afraid.
