American Politics

April 18, 2012

So, it looks like this Mitt Romney guy is going to get the nomination to run against Barack Obama in November for President.

It’s a shame. I really wanted that Newt Gingrich guy to get the nomination then be President. I like him. He reminds me of Ralph Wiggum.

What? Policies? Bah!

Screw policies. Issues? Screw those too!

Politics have nothing to do with policies and issues. Politics are just popularity contests. Nothing more.

Consider the following: two cast members from the film Predator have been elected governor of a state. That was the movie with the tagline “If it bleeds, we can kill it.”

Meanwhile, people are getting upset with something Ted Nugent said at an NRA convention.

Let’s break this down for a moment.

Ted Nugent.

NRA convention.

What part of either of those two statements makes anybody think that any part of what happened was based on reality.

Ted Nugent is the same guy who said “I got the cat scratch fever from some kitty next door.” The guy is an aging rock and roller. If that doesn’t scream intelligent discourse, I don’t what does. I can further prove my point by referencing the song Wango Tango, but I don’t feel that’s necessary. This is Ted Nugent, people!

And of all places for him to make a speech, how about a gun convention. These are people who firmly believe and argue for the use of assault rifles for protection, hunting dangerous and delicious animals and keeping the King of England out of your face.

I got no issues with gun ownership. You want a gun, sure, go for it. But within reason, man. For crying out loud, I once watched this deer hunting TV show. The hunter was up on a ridge with a sniper rifle picking off deer. He was a mile away from the animal. You want to a hunt deer, at least give the deer a chance. Hunt the thing. Track it. Shoot it with a regular hunting rifle. Picking off a deer with a sniper rifle from a mile away isn’t hunting. It’s just being lazy. If that’s what you’re going to do, you may as well go to Santa’s Village and pick off reindeer in a pen.

What was I saying? Oh yeah. Don’t get upset over what Ted Nugent says. His opinions don’t matter. He’s a musician preaching to a crowd that agrees with his wacky opinions.

    Ted Nugent – gotta love him really!

    I thnk that if people want to hunt they should hunt wild boar with spears. That would sort the men from the boys!

    Or at least a bow and arrow.

    A very good point and good post. The funny thing is that Obama has never made a move to restrict any kind of guns. Guns are not even on his agenda. The laws are looser now than when Bush/Cheney/Satan were in office. The NRA is a bunch of ignorant idiots who always have to be hyped up about some outside enemy, and frankly, they’re also a bunch of racist idiots. Obama’s black. You do the math. Mr. RK said he’s surprised they haven’t claimed rampant homosexuals will go out and commit crimes, necessitating guns (yes, a famous in-the-closet novelist wrote a column about this recently!)

    Ted Nugent, methinks, must have a really small dick, and makes up for it by loving guns. That is also a common thing here.

    I think that if Ted Nugent had a tiny pecker, it would be well known. He’s been around. A lot.

    I don’t know why people get all huffy when they get what they expect. Case in point: Roseanne Barr singing the National Anthem. She’s a raunchy comedian, with an annoying speaking voice, what did you think she would do? The people who thought it would be a good idea for her to slaughter the N.A. should have been fired.

    I don’t get why anybody who isn’t a pro singer is allowed to sing an anthem at a filmed event. Too many pros butcher the anthem, even more amateurs butcher it.

    Those deer are mean! You have to keep your distance so they don’t turn on you and bare their teeth and attack. Saw it on The Simpson’s so I know it’s true.

    meaner than hiding up on a ridge shooting the deer a mile away with a sniper rifle?
