I'm posting this in "Political" because I believe it is clearly a political statement:

Pretty cool to see Ted Nugent there. That's positive for 2a.  :thumbsup:

Good to see some humans in the white house.
Years of Democrats wore very thin.

Anyone interested in seeing more photos of the evening can see some on Palin's website:

Including this one with White House tour guide Donald Trump:

Sorry, but the Nuge is a giant ass, regardless of his views on 2a or whatever good music he made. He's right up there in Mel Gibson idiot/crazy territory.

Sad to see him in the White House. Republicans everywhere would be good to get rid of these idiots rather than giving them a free pass just because they have some conservative viewpoints.

Come to think of it, Palin is another one that I have to wonder why the hell she is still around?

Without calling you names, do you really think that's an intelligent response?

You represent exactly what's wrong with the Republican party if we want to strengthen and move forward. You can't just go total moron anytime anyone criticizes the party for things they should be criticized for. Nugent is a idiot, a racist, never did anything other than music, and other things that personally I don't want in the White House.

Can you elaborate on Ted Nugent being a racist idiot? He is extremely outspoken and no doubt very vocal but I'm interested in more specifics. He is very close with many black musicians and has been since the Amboy Dukes (1960s). I grew up there and the guy has done a lot for many, many people and Detroit. Without a doubt he is a very strong 2a proponent and has been for a long time. Some things he has done or said are questionable for sure but make no mistake, the guy is a diehard 2a advocate and is always fighting for our rights. Most of these musician types are just a lot of hot air but he actually advocates for our 2a rights, whether you think he is a idiot of not. He is well educated on the subject and continually fighting for our 2a rights. Again, just curious why you say he is a racist idiot? BTW...seen him in the 70s many times and his concerts were awesome!

I wouldn't make that judgment because I have no idea what your definition of "intelligent response" is, so I wouldn't venture a guess, but I do know that you are the person who responded to the original post, which was just a photo, by claiming that one of the people in the photo was "a giant ass", "crazy" and in "idiot/crazy territory". Was that an "intelligent response"? Feel free to include me in your name-calling intelligent responses.

Ha ha. That's totally laughable. Not because it took you two more sentences to contradict your first sentence "Without calling you names" by calling me a "moron", but because there is no one on these threads that has criticized the Republican party as hypocrites on numerous issues more than me. Am I right or what, Rocky?  I'm not a Republican. I'm more of a libertarian, but not a Libertarian (William Weld? Totally absurd mockery of the very concept of libertarianism!). I posted that original photo not because I am a "fan" of any of those people (I'm actually not at all, except for Nugent's outspoken views on some 2A issues, but certainly not on his endorsement of "immigration reform" advocate Grover Norquist for NRA board of directors), but because I found it extremely amusing/ironic that those people were in the White House and posing in front of the official portrait of Hillary Clinton. I was imagining the Dem splodey heads. I look forward to your citations of the evidence of Nugent's racism. I'd also like to hear more about the details of the plan for the Republican party "to strengthen and move forward"... you mean like the group from Oahu (touted by Rocky) that the state GOP organization has declared is a fraud?

Ya, its too bad, his music and shows were probably awesome.

Anyhow, he's called Blacks "greasy mongrels," and said that there isn't one "true" Black American. Blames Jews for everything wrong in the world (at least thats not because of the Blacks and other "mongrels") and openly posts on Facebook about supporting the Holocaust. There is a long list of similar things he's said. As for being an idiot, I guess that's purely a personal evaluation, but a pretty easy one to make after hearing him speak. He's just a loudmouth.

Lastly, I really, really, despise people like him who go on and on about "our troops" etc. yet he never served and dodged Vietnam by shitting his pants. All in all, I think every indication I have is of someone that imo should be distanced from any President of this country.

1) Sorry if I wasn't clear, but "you" in my post is just in general. I guess I should have said "a person"
.
2) I'm not Rocky and don't have any connections to any group on Oahu. Sorry, but I don't even know who Rocky is.

3) You directly criticized me in a totally asinine way, by stating that if I didn't like Nugent in the White House, then I must like a bunch of rappers instead. That's ridiculous, and I called you on it. End of story.

So, in your mind, no one is allowed to praise the military unless they have served as well?  Getting out of serving in no way implies they don't respect the military.  We've had many who did volunteer yet refused to deploy to the Middle East because they disagreed with the mission and politics of civilians ordering them to deploy, not because they hate the military.  Are those types also to be despised if they praise "our troops"?

Your rationale for despising Nugent's patriotism is illogical.  People who refused to go to Vietnam were flocking to Canada to escape the draft.  That doesn't mean they didn't love their country .... just that they disagreed with the war even more. 

Is it more patriotic to die for a cause you don't believe in just because the government forces you to join and fight?

Can you please provide links to the documents that would substantiate your claims about Nugent's statements?

1) Sorry if I wasn't clear, but "you" in my post is just in general. I guess I should have said "a person"

No, that wasn't "clear" at all. You quote me [Quote from: punaperson on April 21, 2017, 12:26:41 PM]: "Perhaps this came closer to meeting your standards:", and then you write: "Without calling you names, do you really think that's an intelligent response?". So now you're (you specifically, not "a person" "in general") saying what you really meant was ""Without calling a person names, do[es] a person really think that's an intelligent response?" Yeah, that makes sense.

And then you (and I mean "you", not "a person") write: "You represent exactly what's wrong with the Republican party if we want to strengthen and move forward. You can't just go total moron anytime anyone criticizes the party for things they should be criticized for.", which you now claim really meant "A person represent(s) exactly what's wrong with the Republican party if we want to strengthen and move forward. A person can't just go total moron anytime anyone criticizes the party for things they should be criticized for."

For some reason I'm having a hard time believing you.


2) I'm not Rocky and don't have any connections to any group on Oahu. Sorry, but I don't even know who Rocky is.

That was directed at Rocky, (who could verify my "criticism" of the Republican party) who has posted recently about the "new" Republican party/direction and who they are and what they are doing. I responded to several of his posts on that thread providing evidence of the agenda of the people leading and promoting that "change". They are "fundamentalist christians" who assert that government must be based upon the teachings of the bible (as they interpret them, of course)(perhaps that's what you also mean by "strengthen and move forward"). You seem to be unfamiliar with my postings re the Republican party and the amount of hypocrisy therein, and was simply seeking confirmation from Rocky, as he is well aware of it. So your assumption that I am not critical of that political party is simply wrong.

3) You directly criticized me in a totally asinine way, by stating that if I didn't like Nugent in the White House, then I must like a bunch of rappers instead. That's ridiculous, and I called you on it. End of story.

There you go again... "totally asinine", but... whatever., I guess I now have a better idea of what you consider "an intelligent response". Please provide the quote wherein I state "that if [you] didn't like Nugent in the White House, then [you] must like a bunch of rappers instead".

What I actually wrote was "Perhaps this came closer to meeting your standards: [photo]". I suppose I could have included a question mark, but I thought that would be grammatically incorrect: "Perhaps this came closer to meeting your standards?: [photo]" It was intended as a question to get you to state clearly what your criteria are for "allowing" the President to invite people to the White House. Maybe you could provide us with that list of criteria now? and perhaps you could give us your judgment on which of the people from the following list "should" be "allowed", by invitation, to be in the White House: [Dems] Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Lois Lerner, [Repubs] David Petraeus, Dennis Hastert, Michael Grimm, Trey Radel, Rick Renzi.

None of the people in that WH photo are there for official purposes -- unless Trump is getting a feel for a new cabinet member.

All three are US citizens, have contributed to the US in some significant way, and were invited the White House just as the Super Bowl Champs or any other celebrity might be. 

You don't have to like the people.  But you do have to learn to deal with things you might not like in an adult fashion.  Saying "sad to see him in the White House" shows how you use personal feelings to make your point -- nothing to do with anything he's actually done in real life.

Words and opinions are protected under the Constitution.  Nugent is free to think and express any opinion he wants inside of certain limitations. 

You're also free to express your opinion about Uncle Ted.  But, just because someone disagrees with you in no way makes them summarily wrong.
