Petition: Draft Ted Nugent to Serve in Afghanistan

Ted Nugent is perhaps the most courageous man in America.
America needs courageous men. Hence, I've launched a
petition to draft Ted Nugent to serve on the front lines in
Afghanistan.

You may well wonder why Mr. Nugent has not already made
this decision on his own. This is a complex medical affair:
while courageous in a way rarely encountered this side of
Chuck Norris, Mr. Nugent has long been plagued by an allergy
to active duty. I stress that this is an allergy, not a personal
disposition. There is a vast difference, yo.

Ted Nugent wants to fight. He just can't bring himself to do so,
because of this unfortunate and rare ailment. We can help.

When called up to serve in Vietnam, Ted Nugent allegedly
contracted a serious bowel condition. We have this allegation
from an impeccable source: Ted Nugent. In an article in High
Times magazine in 1977, Mr. Nugent described this rare and
unpleasant intestinal failure in gruesome detail. When he
finally presented himself for duty, he was a walking disease of
a human being, and the army wouldn't touch him: "They'd call
dead people before they'd call my ass."

....The Huffington Post

...I thought it was pretty lame of him to do that, considering
all his spouting off
...

Ted Nugent is another of those blow hards that won't give up their gun until you take it from their cold dead hands....but would of course run away screaming like a little girl if actualy confronted by a dangerous situation.

I don't think he should serve in Afgahanastan....A barve and tough guy like him, should single handedly take on all the bad guys in Somalia. His bowles would start moving the second he got on the plane.

Wow that snopes story really paints Ted Nugent as a liar and real piece of shit.

Claims he had a student deferement not a 4F as he had originaly claimed then his record shows he only had the student deferement for part of the time then got the 4F for failing the physical as he originaly had claimed....

But of course had he chosen to be a patriot and serve his country...he claims the funny thing is, "I'd make an incredible army man. I'd be a colonel before you knew what hit you, and I'd have the baddest bunch of motherfuckin killers you'd ever seen in my platoon."

This guy is a legend in his own mind, and obviously a coward in real life.

Why all the animosity toward ol' Ted? Did he nail one of your past sweathearts?

At least George Bush jr was a true American patriot, and did his part to defend this great nation.

He was brave enough to join the elite ranks of the Texas Air Guard, defending our borders from, uhm, uh...

Anyway, he found the place where he could serve his country, against un-numbered foes.

Word is, he valiantly showed up for at at least one meeting. And that one meeting counts, brother! He sure ticked that box off, yes sir.

Clinton is another brave soul, who rose to the challenge when his country was in danger. He went to the ends of the earth in his desire to serve and fight, all the way to Canada,

Maybe all these heros follow the advice of former long time Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, who famously stated that soldiers "are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy"

Sounds a lot like our current Secretary of State, John Kerry, (another skull and bonesman), who states "Education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart ... you can do well. If you don't, YOU GET STUCK IN IRAQ"

I for one find it comforting to know that those who send our boys into the desert are such great courageous men, so willing to fight and make a difference, so willing to put their lives on the line. Kinda brings a tear to my eye, just thinking about it.

Nah I just resented what he did to your mom.
I just don't like assholes who talk tough and then are proven to be total pussies. I had no problem with Nugent until I heard he dodged the draft for Vietnam....yet talks like he is a war hero. The guys who went there deserve our respect and should be honored....and those who dodged their duty to their country should be treated as the cowards they are....not put up on a pedastal for talking tough. This guy is obviously a coward who shit his pants to keep from serving his country....he deserves no respect.

....now I don't see the masses backing this guy up after
this story broke, he was there for the big gun guys, which
I'm sure they keep it down but know I think it's going to
back fire...

...I think he needs a mentality check up...

Don't be so tough on the Nuge. Vietnam and Afghanistan were completely different animals. By the time the Nuge would have been eligible, it was clear that the whole Vietnam war was insanely stupid and it cost over 50,000 young American lives. Young men from all walks of life were looking for some way to avoid slogging through a rice paddie for a war that meant absolutely nothing to us. I personally didn't want to be walking those fields, but rather than cop out, I joined the Navy. I contributed, and I'm proud of my service. But in hindsight, to draft young men who really didn't want to fight and send them into extreme harm's way for a meaningless war was virtually government betrayal. Afghanistan is at least fighting an actual enemy of the U.S., and all of the people fighting volunteered. Apples and oranges.

Extreme taxation, excessive controls, oppressive government competition with business, frustrated minorities and forgotten Americans are not the products of free enterprise. They are the residue of centralized bureaucracy, of government by a self-anointed elite. - Ronald Reagan

....sorry but I think he's a jerk when it comes to this...

.... firstly..thank you for your service....,

...Enlisted....Regular Army....

...secondly I look at from a different stand point I chose
to go Vietnam (being the only son, your not required to
serve in combat) it was some inner value that takes control
of you and gives you strength to answer that calling, my
personal view was if you are consensus objector you shouldn't
be made to fight, I personally would not want someone with
that belief in a foxhole next to me, I value my life and the
other men around me...
