This is sweet.  Look at this decidedly biased news story about the NRA's recent convention in Washington, DC...

Secret Service Investigating Ted Nugent's Violent Anti-Obama Rant
WASHINGTON - The U.S. Secret Service is reportedly investigating faded '70s rock star Ted Nugent for his recent insistence he'll be "dead or in jail" in a year's time if President Barack Obama is re-elected in November.
At a convention of the National Rifle Association over the weekend, the longtime gun advocate compared Obama and the Democrats to a coyote who should be shot.
"It isn't the enemy that ruined America," he said as he reaffirmed his endorsement of Republican front-runner Mitt Romney.
"It's good people who bent over and let the enemy in. If the coyote's in your living room pissing on your couch, it's not the coyote's fault. It's your fault for not shooting him."
He accused the Obama administration of being "evil" and "America-hating."
"If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year," he said angrily. "We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November."
He then told his audience of proud gun-owners that if they failed to "clean house in this vile, evil, America-hating administration, I don't even know what you're made out of."
The Secret Service says it's aware of the weekend remarks and is looking into them.
"Threatening violence — or whatever it is that Nugent's threatening — is clearly beyond the pale, but Nugent's not the one running for president," said DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Yeah, Debbie, what IS Ted threatening?  You don't even know.  You don't even know if it IS a threat.  You have no idea, and neither does the Obama Administration.

You just know that it scares you in your position of power, anytime the citizenry exercises its Right to Free Speech.

I would say it's not a threat at all.  I think that Ted is saying the EXACT SAME THING that he's said for DECADES about a corrupt Central Government — that we should CUT THE GUTS OUT of the government, by any and all means at our disposal.

Regardless of what you think of Ted Nugent's contributions to Rock & Roll, and regardless of your opinion of his political leaning (which is decidedly conservative), there is no disputing the fact that Nugent has consistently exercised his Right to Free Speech in defense of our American Liberty.

I've known Nugent's political stand since the 1980s, when my brother was taking Ted on guided bow hunts in Southeast Texas.  I can tell you that Nugent was a very serious and responsible hunter...when the cameras weren't rolling.

As soon as the video started to roll, however, Ted would go into performance mode, and the guy knows how to play to an audience, there's no denying it.

He produced a whole series of the most outlandish hunting videos in the 80s, which were more comedy than anything else — it was just another stage for his outgoing personality.

But personally, Ted Nugent had (and has) a deep and abiding respect for America, the country that has smiled on him in abundance.  Ted LOVES this country, he loves American Liberty and the Freedom born of Liberty.

Moreover, Nugent is well educated in Constitutional law.

He knows the essence of the Second Amendment, for example, in a way that transcends all the Leftist attempts to subvert it over the decades.  He knows that the Second Amendment MAKES A HARD DISTINCTION between a Citizen Militia and the Central Government.  He knows that it is the DUTY of American citizens to keep and bear arms to ENSURE the security of our FREE STATE.

Ultimately, that means taking up arms AGAINST our Central Government when that government is corrupted and oppressive.  There's no debate about that.  The Founders knew EXACTLY what they were doing when they drafted the Second Amendment.

The Founders knew that an armed populace is a giant monkey-wrench in the mechanism of a corrupted government.  That's why the Second Amendment specifically states that our right to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.

Yeah.  Our Liberty is so precious that the Founders INTENDED for the American people to DEFEND IT, even if that meant staging ANOTHER Revolution against the Central Government.

If you're an American born and raised in a climate of Freedom unrivaled anywhere else in the world, you may take your Liberty for granted.  Indeed, those Americans who have travelled extensively and lived overseas — e.g. our inestimable military personnel — can tell you, unequivocally, that America is the freest society in the world.

Unfortunately, and thanks to our revisionist education system under an increasingly Socialist Central Government, such a drastic change of geographic and social perspective is often necessary to open our eyes to the wonder of American Liberty.

Before I go any further, let's pause for a moment and explore the difference between Liberty and Freedom.

First of all, Liberty and Freedom ARE NOT synonymous.

Liberty is, by far, the most precious of our RIGHTS — Liberty is the RIGHT to make our own decisions.  Liberty is not granted to us by the Constitution, by the way; it is bestowed upon us by a MUCH HIGHER authority, namely The Creator.  That's what our Founding documents acknowledge.

I don't give a damn if you're an atheist and you don't believe in God or Allah or Christ or Mohammad or Buddha or Shiva and Vishnu — when the Founders said that The Creator granted us certain unalienable [sic] Rights, they were making a DISTINCTION between our HUMAN RIGHTS and the Laws of Man.

They were EMPHASIZING that NO Law of Man should EVER infringe on the Rights to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, among others.  They were placing those Rights on such a high shelf that NO MAN and NO GOVERNMENT could reach and displace them, okay?

So even an atheist can enjoy those Rights, free from the fear of an oppressive and intrusive government.

Given the Right to make your own decisions, you can CHOOSE Freedom, or you can CHOOSE enslavement.  But, if you choose enslavement, you've surrendered your Liberty and may never recover it.

Freedom, therefore, is just ONE RESULT of Liberty.  Liberty, ambiguous as it is, is far more important than Freedom.  Liberty MUST BE DEFENDED at all costs, even at the cost of thousands or millions of lives.

The Founders acknowledged this sobering fact on many occasions, as when Thomas Jefferson wrote, "The Tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of Patriots and Tyrants.  It is its natural manure."  That's Jefferson's actual quote, often misquoted.

Liberty is such a rare and precious Right, it has never survived for long in the history of Humanity — until the U.S. Constitution came along, that is.

God knows that the Liberal Leftists in America have NO appreciation for American Liberty, inasmuch as they are constantly striving to undermine the very Constitution that enables them to voice their seething, hate-filled, divisive and decidedly racist rhetoric.

They learn this anti-American shit in the mandatory free education system, of course, wherein the Central Government creates and enforces the curricula, frequently rewriting history texts to demonize the Founders of this country.
