    Is Nugent employed by the government? Did he sign any kind of agreement concerning what he would say publically?

    Of course he didn't.

    His rights are being abused, just like Juan Williams' right were abused when he was fired from NPR.

    The better question, did he sign any sort of contract stipulating that his services weren't terminable under any circumstance?

    Of course he didn't.

    NPR is not legally obligated to retain any employee they do not wish to keep. Your understanding of the the 1st amendment is hideously flawed beyond any hope of repair.

    Gotta love lefty logic.
    First, if you think Obama (never heard of Ubama but I guess silly wordgames to insult your opponent is normal republican tactics showing their ugly little faces again) actually meant that he wanted to bring knives and guns than you would be even more illogical than most lefty logic.

    If a gun wielding hunter like Ted Nugent talks about Obama sucking on his machine gun that is a little bit more than political rethoric IMHO.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Not only that, but he's one of the worst hypocrites around.

    I would bet my house on the fact that if George Bush were still president, and a left wing performer had been cancelled by the army after making even joking threats against the presidents life, he'd support that decision to the hilt.

    Here's how butthurt he was over the faux controversy over Common being invited to the white house.

    Oh and his signature is just hilarious.

    Living on base is and has always been different than living in the civilian world. Actually everything you need is right on base and you don't ever really need to leave. But it has different laws and customs.
    In the civilian world you can let your yard go to crap and most of time nobody going to say a word to you, try that living in base housing.
    You almost feel like you are living in a different country.

    There is no Constitutional right to a government job

    I'm not saying management did the right thing by firing him, but that had absolutely nothing to do with his Constitutional rights. Your interpretation of the 1st Amendment is so far off-base it's not even funny.
