Teeing it Up: A Round at the LINK (Ted Nugent Edition)

It was another busy week in the news cycle.  From the final flight of the Discovery on the back of a Boeing Jumbo 747 jet from Kennedy Space Center in Florida to Washington D.C. to the Secret Service sex scandal.  The most interesting story of the week in my opinion was Ted Nugent’s comments at the annual NRA conference.  I watched the video and to be honest I really didn’t find anything controversial or offensive about his comments.  This is a man who got caught up in the moment and said a few things in defense of our constitution and our liberties that raised the eyebrows of many on the left and the Secret Service.  He did not issue a direct threat towards President Obama or anyone else in Washington D.C.  And the language he used was less inflammatory than the language our friends on the left used on a daily basis when George Bush was President.  Heck it’s far less inflammatory than the language used by Nation Of Islam’s Leader Louis Farrakhan last Saturday when he said, “people will kill their leaders in a few days.”  And as far as I can tell, Louis Farrakhan has yet to be interviewed by the Secret Service; it’s the height of hypocrisy.  You see as reprehensible as I find Mr. Farrakhan’s language it’s political speech and political speech can get nasty and ugly because ideologies tend to be polar opposite.  It’s also protected by the first amendment.

Many of us have written articles about how this administration is so corrupt.  We have written about how this administration and our elected officials have ignored our constitution.  We have called for the impeachment of President Obama.  We have called President Obama a tyrant and expressed our willingness to do whatever it takes to make him a one term President.  This is political speech; speech that is at least for now protected by the first amendment.  If our right to call out our elected officials when we feel they’re wasting taxpayer dollars or ignoring the constitution is constantly scrutinized and each word examined under a microscope, then what kind of nation have we become?  Certainly not the nation our Founding Fathers envisioned.  They believed robust debate and freedom of speech were essential components in the process of self-governance.  They believed that we the people had the final say in matters and that the right of the people to peaceably assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances without fear of reprisal was paramount in a free society.  This is why they made it the very first amendment in our constitution.  Check out the below video and ask yourself if Ted Nugent’s comments about our current state of affairs in America and about our government is incorrect.  Has government been ignoring the constitution?  Has there been an unprecedented amount of corruption with this administration?  So who is really breaking the law here?  Is it a man exercising his first amendment rights that are protected by our constitution or is it an administration that violates the constitution on a daily basis and authorizes the running of American sold guns across the Mexican border leading to the death of an American citizen?

The answer is obvious to me.  One is violating the law and the other is not.  Mr. Nugent’s lawful comments earned him an interview with the Secret Service and forced a cancellation of his concert at Fort Knox Army base.  President Obama’s unconstitutional actions of recess appointments while congress was in pro-forma session and the signing of the NDAA which has a provision to detain American citizens indefinitely without due process have been for the most part ignored.  What kind of nation have we become when this is now the norm?  The answer is a nation in decline.  On to the links.

Below are links to some great articles by conservative bloggers who are fighting each day to get the truth out and save America.  Please take the time to check them out and hit their tip jars if they have them.  So tee it up and enjoy another SENTRY JOURNAL round at the LINKs.
