    Don't honestly care about Mr. Nugent's politics but this is good. Our military can't be seen as supporting somebody who openly attacks the president. However it is interesting that Mr Nugent has no problem playing for the federally funded troops and getting a federal pay check to do so.
    Is Nugent a federal employee?

    LOL....Theodore in one story claimed he covered himself in human waste to get a 4-F, another time claimed he used crystal meth to get the 4-F ...whatever the case, he is a draft dodger and always will be.

    There's a problem, then, because our service members don't respect Obama.

    It isn't that they don't respect him as president, just a majority of military don't like his political views:

    Total Military Recruits: Army, Navy, Air Force statistics - states compared - Military data on StateMaster

    If you look at the link out of the top ten states by sign ups, 6 of the ten could be considered red states with Texas leading the pack by far. It isn't that the military as a whole don't like the president, it's just that many service members have conservative values by default.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Interesting, because he wasn't that terribly interested when Vietnam came around. By the way, you seem to have trouble understanding freedom of speech. Having freedom of speech doesn't protect you against potential consequences that your words have. Just like, I can't go to my boss and tell him to go **** himself and expect to keep my job. I had a right to say what I did, absolutely, but by firing me he hasn't violated my freedom of speech. Actions have consequences. Deal with it.

    Freedom of speech protects your from punishment by the government. The Constitution says that, actually.

    No problem with them canceling the concert.

    As for his original draft evasions ..... when Ted had the chance to man-up consistent with his current loud mouth, he was a wimp. He would have more credibility at anti-war protests. Thems the ropes Teddy.

    No it does not, since the courts have determined that you have some protected speech. You do not have carte blanche to say anything you want.
