Motivational Time with Ted

| September 20, 2017 | 46 Comments

With all the posers and petticoat progressives we have to deal with around here, I thought a little quality time with a true Patriot might be in order.  Relax, sit back and enjoy a few moments with another American.    Just a free public service we offer here at TAH.   Oh,  the ending is Epic.

Proud to be an American

      These are the times that try men’s souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.
      T. Paine, circa 1777

      Ted pooped his pants during the physical to get out of the draft.

      • Dave Hardin says:

        LOL, probably not. Its an old story he told a High Times reporter. He took a school deferment and later failed his physical.

        Its been a point of controversy for decades, so has him being a pedophile.

        …unless someone on the boards here actually has first hand info

        • Dave Hardin says:

          Yep, pretty much covers the issue. Ted said all kinds of things over the years. I doubt he shit in his pants, did meth, and didn’t eat for a week. The interview with the High Times reporter was Ted fucking with a stoned hippie and selling records at the time.

          My money is on him being under weight and having one testicle. All the records that would explain what happened are long gone.

          We played his music in Beirut…that I know to be a fact. He is doing a trip to Oki and Japan to put on shows for those stationed over seas…good on him.

            Ted told a story that was tailored to appeal to a specific audience (druggies and hippies who read “High Times”) back then.

            Now that he’s trying to appeal to a different audience (right-wingers, gun owners, and veterans) he’s telling a different story.

            If he was willing to lie in order to please his audience in 1979, is there any reason to think he’s not willing to do so now?

            My guess is that as with most things, the truth lies in the mushy middle. Did he do all the things he said he did in the High Times article to avoid getting drafted? Maybe not.

            But there were lots of guys back then who had lots of ways of making themselves less likely to get called up (“student deferments” by men who weren’t actual students, “heart murmurs” diagnosed by a “friendly” doctor, “family hardships” that were embellished or fabricated out of whole cloth, etc) and given his own statements over the years it seems reasonable to conclude that he would have used any “legal” method at his disposal to avoid the draft, just like so many of his peers did.

            It’s a shame he didn’t just man up like P.J. O’Rourke and admit that, like so many others of his generation, he did everything he could to avoid the draft, and that he regrets it now. He could make his apologies for being a stupid kid and move on. I don’t think it would have hurt his “cred” with his intended audience if he had just done that.

            • Dave Hardin says:

              Ole Ted didn’t actually do anything that millions of others didn’t do back in those days.

              I can promise you that I drank and did more drugs during my first enlistment than Ted ever thought about doing. I was not alone, I know who you are out there. Bong water is so much more than just a breakfast drink.

              I served willingly so people like Ted didn’t have to. Personally, I wish a few that did serve stayed the fuck home.

              I doubt Ted is hurting for money these days…seems like he is just wanting to go Rock Marines.

              I doubt any Marine there will give care if he shits in his pants while he plays.

              • Martinjmpr says:

                It’s not what he did “back then” that I find objectionable. As you pointed out (and as I said below), he only did what many men in his situation did back then, and which many parents, teachers, judges, doctors and other community leaders openly supported or even assisted in.

                What I object to regarding Nugent are his lame attempts to whitewash it NOW and to re-make himself into a badass “patriot” tough guy.

                • Dave Hardin says:

                  He evolved or devolved. Not sure which.

                  I get where you are coming from and actually expected a lot more blow back from the post. People are getting soft around here.

                  What he is doing now is putting on shows for Marines, killing things with guns for the fun of it and wakes up everyday with a hot chick beside him. Whats not to like?

                  Where is the forgiveness and love for your fellow man?

                  He got something against fat Korean men…I like cross eyed strippers…to each their own bro.

    • Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

      Indeed my first reaction to anything from Nugent…mediocre musician and shit bag draft dodger…

      But that’s just me…he dodged service when he had the chance to serve and now he talks shit about what a great fucking soldier he’d have made…smells like a load of shit to me. But I realize I am rapidly becoming one of Heinlein’s surly curmudgeons in my old age.

      • Martinjmpr says:

        As I said above, I have more respect for those who honestly admit their youthful stupidity than those who try to lie and bluster out of it.

        We’re now on our 2nd president who rode a draft deferment to avoid service during the war, so I think it’s pretty clear that for most Americans this is a non-issue. There’s no reason for Nugent to lie or to make up a ridiculous story that casts him as a wannabe hero who’s military ambitions were tragically cut short by a medical condition.

        The draft ended when I was 11 years old, and the NVA occupied Saigon when I was 13, so I never had to face the prospect of getting drafted or sent to war.

        If I am 100% honest with myself I can’t say for sure that I wouldn’t have done everything I could have to avoid getting called up. Because, let’s face it, most of us are pretty stupid when we’re that age. I sure as hell was.

        I enlisted at 18 but it wasn’t because I was a super-patriot who loved America and wanted to kill commies. Like many of us here, I’m sure, I was just a dumb kid from the ‘burbs looking for something more exciting and adventurous than just going to State U and then getting a white collar job and a house in the same suburbs I grew up in.

    • W2 says:

      Not that you need me agreeing with you Jonn, but amen to ted being a draft dodger / sunshine patriot. Had the chance to pick up a weapon and stand a watch, decided otherwise.

    Well done and I also love the expression on President Trump’s face in that pic, it’s like he’s saying “EAT THIS, SNOWFLAKES!”.

    thank you for this Dave, this is the most motivated i have been in a long time!

    I knew Okinawa rocks…now it’s official.

  6. bg2 says:

    Love, love! Tough guys and beautiful women. What’s not to like?

  7. Tallywhagger says:

    “…and kill a fat guy”! YES.

    He’s so funny 🙂

  8. jonp says:

    Damn Ted! When did we get old?

  9. FuzeVT says:

    Crap! I left Okinawa too early. If I had just executed an IPCOT in 2015 I could have still been there for the show.

    I did get to see John Michael Montgomery and Aaron Tippin. Arron Tippin was awesome. Talk about high energy – that guy was awesome. Looks much better without the moustache and mullet.

  10. streetsweeper says:

    Regardless of what-ever he did or didn’t do to stay out of the draft, I do know he didn’t go around burning the flag, badmouthing this country or our serving troops and veterans.

  11. Joe says:

    If there’s a bigger piece of human s**t then Ted Nugent, I’m can’t think of it.
