Ted Nugent wants to be Obama's drug czar


rawstory.com

It seems as though self-titled "rock legend" Ted Nugent is no fan of taking a Journey to the Center of the Mind.

The same Nugent who said, during an August 2007 concert, -- as he was holding what appeared to be two assault rifles -- "Obama, he's a piece of #, and I told him to suck on my machine gun," seems to have undergone a change of heart.

Instead of death threats, now Nugent wants a job. And not just any job. He's got the Cat Scratch Fever for no less than US Drug Czar.

You've gotta love Ted!!! Please read the full article to understand just how wacky and lovable this guy really is.

Ted is one guy who has truly "been there. done that". Not only has he rocked out for years and years but he's done more drugs than Keith Richards. He is also a board member of the NRA and hunts all of his own food.

This guy knows what he is talking about. I somehow doubt that he could bring huge, sweeping changes to the drug problems in this country as the major players are untouchable.But it would make for reading all the same. Somehow I don't think he is Senate confirmable, do you??

I feel, as I'm sure most of you do, that our own government is hugely involved in the drug trade because of the massive $$$ involved. If Ted is going to have to go after people who have diplomatic immunity he will, like all of the other drug czar's, get nowhere.

Actually, Nugent has been Big Time anti-drugs for as long as I can remember, and he's been quite outspoken regarding such over the years as well.

A prominent supporter of the NRA and law enforcement, Yes, but a drug user? Oh Hails No... not Ted.

"[A]s America's Drug Czar, I would put a big hurt on the drug kingpins and consumers like they have never seen," he concludes. "Every American who smokes dope, manufactures, buys or sells meth or uses any illegal drugs is aiding and abetting the enemies of America. Case closed.


Well Mr Nugent you can talk as tough as you like, But the truth is its the same old talk that hasn't changed anything.

If you want to take the control away from criminals then you need to end prohibition, Legalise and regulate..............Didn't the alcohol prohibition teach anyone anything.

I think Ted's attitude toward drug smugglers, dealers and manufacturers would be real simple and straight forward. Kill'em all and let God sort'em out!
And with the meth problem we have in this area, I would have to agree with him.

Yeah, Theodore claims to have never done drugs. He’s been trying to get into politics for quite a while now, but as far as I can see, all he’s qualified for is maybe bow-hunting czar.

I guess he could be a sex-addiction czar. He was apparently way over the top with it back in the day. Frankly he’s turned me off with all his self promotion.

Just like the bad "Moonshine" that was responsible for blindness and deaths,
It was born out of prohibition.

"Nugent was notable for his frequent declarations that he did not drink alcoholic beverages or smoke tobacco or marijuana. In an interview for VH1's Behind The Music, Nugent stated the reason behind this was due to his father having sternly reprimanded him when he came home smelling of alcohol after a night of drinking. This was an unusual stance for a major rock performer of the '70s, and Nugent has been cited as an important early influence on the straight edge movement that similarly disavows drinking and recreational drug use.[5]
Since the early 1990s Nugent has become both popular and criticized for his conservative beliefs and his anti-drug and anti-alcohol stances. He is a national spokesman for the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) program, advocating the "natural highs" to be found in an outdoor lifestyle.

He has hosted the Ted Nugent Kamp for Kids, which combines a curriculum of hands-on hunting, conservation, archery and a strong anti-drug message aimed mainly at underprivileged inner-city children. Nugent also is a spokesman for the National Field Archery Association, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America".en.wikipedia.org...


More drugs than Keith Richards ....ok

Shame that Hunter died, as I think H. S. Thompson would have made a great drug czar. Especially his stance on punishment for drug crimes. Not possession mind you, but the people who rip others off on drug deals and distribute knowingly tainted drugs. Put them in the stockades on the courthouse lawn as a mark of ridicule and shame!




Kill'em all and let God sort'em out! And with the meth problem we have in this area, I would have to agree with him.


You... support the death penalty for non-violent drug offenders? I mean, I would have suggested something like compulsory public service and rehabilitation... but seriously? Death? So you pretty much just crave and devour phallus 24/7 then I take it?

When these idiots make meth, and blow up houses in quiet, decent neighborhoods, Yeah, I support the the death penalty. I also support the death penalty for these SOBs that drive by homes and start shooting at someone on the street, but instead, the bullet goes through the walls of the house and kills, in on case, an infant, and in another case, a 12 year old honor roll student.
(The drive by's were drug related.)
I've seen too many lives messed up by drugs, especially meth. So if they are found guilty, I'd be happy to put a gun to their head and pull the trigger.
And don't forget the harm to the economy that making meth does.
Do you enjoy walking around with your head up your rectum?

Yes, because slaughtering human beings with addiction problems makes the world a better place. Not all of them have addiction problems, mind you, some are just trying to make some cash - and prohibition creates quite a bit of demand. Who gives a damn who gets trampled in the process? The same mentality exists on Wall Street that exists on Pontiac Street. You're not going to stop it by shooting people in the head.

Granted, Amsterdam has it's social issues, but I don't see them blowing up their neighborhoods and mowing down 12 year honor students on the street with Uzi's in record numbers like what is happening here in the states.

Perhaps it's YOU who should pull your head out of YOUR rectum. Because, honestly, to me it just sounds like you're not even that concerned with the drug dealers. You'd just like a morally and socially acceptable justification for shooting people in the head.

Well you're not cutting in line. You'll just going to have to wait for the zombie apocalypse like the rest of us.

Actually, I'm sick and tired of seeing my town go to hell because of drug dealers, manufacturers and addicts. As far as addicts, no I don't have much sympathy. No one made them put a needle in their arm, snort SH*t up their noses, or put a pipe in their mouth. It was a choice they made. Am I self righteous? Damned right I am. I went to vo-tech and later to college, all with out going into debt. And no, daddy didn't pay for it. I worked full time while I went to school.
Addicts, on the other hand, would rather break into someone's home and steal to support their habits. (I had two good friends have their apartments broken into last month. The SOBS even stole toys that would have been give to grandkids.)
Liberals like you think everything can be fixed with rehab and community service. Sorry to tell you bubba, but it doesn't work that way. I've taken care of to many addicts. I know what they are like. I used to bust my butt trying to help them. Guess what. They always ended up trying to use me. I got tired of them. Now, I have to take care of them occaisionally, and I make sure they get the appropriate referals, but I really don't give a damn because I know that 99.9% of them are going to be back on the street. And they are just wasting my (and your) tax dollars. I used to be a liberal like you. Then I woke up and saw the world the way it really is. I suggest you do the same.

That's a pretty simple-minded approach to the situation.

Think about it. Kill off the drug dealers, drug demand increases, new dealers pop up overnight. Keep killing and the drug dealers will begin to arm themselves. Drugs go up in price more, drug dealers afford bigger guns and more bodyguards. Now you have gang wars in your city.

Face it, Lasheic is right. The only way to get drug dealers out of your city is to legalize and regulate. Who's gonna buy weed from seedy Joe on the corner when they can pick up medical-grade stuff at their local pharmacy?

Weed is not the problem. Try coke, herion, crack, meth, ice. I don't much think there is much chance of legalizing that. And drug dealers have already armed themselves. Or don't you read the papers? Like I said, it's time to wake up!
Actually, I think marijuana should be legalized, taxed just like liquor, and sold though liquor stores.

Hilarious. This coming from a man who reminds me of Ted Kaczynski with poor guitar playing habits. Please Ted stick to hiding in the woods and shooting hornet nests. Next thing you know Gary Coleman will be running for Chertoffs job.

Poor Ted. He's got some catching up to do. How would he react when he found out that half the people around him (including stalwarts in his beloved Republican party) are the real players in the drug game? Would he have gone after Clinton for the Mena business? Would he just ignore five tons of coke turning up in a plane linked to elite Republicans?

If he knew anything about it he'd understand that prohibition is there so people in various branches of the USG can make money.

Mind you, if he did find out and start taking people out... that's something I'd pay to see. And of course it might stop him making records, which is no bad thing in itself.

I know somebody else who was self-righteous and believed that the best way to deal with "social undesirables" was wholesale slaughter. If you think slaughtering drug addicts is really the best alternative, then no... I surely would not want to wake up to the realities of your world.

Indeed, it would only cause far more social strife, pain, and suffering. We don't live in a 1950's Leave it to Beaver episode gone terribly awry. Killing the drug dealers will not make sunshine, lollipops, and Jesus's perfect love shine down on America.

Again... compare the drug related crime statistics of the US vs. Amsterdam. Compare studies done on public happiness. I would hope you'd be honest enough to see that the apparent disconnect - which is partially due to a halt in prohibition. As already stated, we faced a similar crisis and spike in crime during Alcohol prohibition. Thankfully, cooler heads prevailed and the amendment ware repealed. However, by your logic, we should have just continued on with alcohol prohibition. Alcohol destroys lives, creates addicts, tears apart families, and kills innocents in drunk driving incidents. What do you really, rationally, think would have happened if the Government decided that instead of ending their inane war on alcohol, they had began rounding up citizens and put them in death camps.

It's got nothing to do with being a liberal, and everything with being a goddamned HUMAN BEING.


(and yes, I know I violated Godwin's Law. Deal with it)

That's what they do in Russia get caught with drugs you get death penaty. I know some one who took a bunch of legal illegal drugs to Russia, he had to turn them over to chief of police as soon as he landed. They were for hospital.

I would make Ted Nugent head of the ATF.

Then we would have gun laws that worked and less criminal because they would fear getting shot while committing there crimes.

That's probably a better idea than making him drug czar. If he head of the ATF, we wouldn't have a squads of jack booted thugs breaking into the houses of legal gun owners because of rumours. (Happened back in the Clinton days, around the time of the Randy Weaver and Waco fiascos.)
