    When and where did you serve?

    An interviewer from the British newspaper The Independent questioned Nugent about a 1977 interview in High Times magazine in which Nugent allegedly detailed elaborate steps taken to avoid the Vietnam draft.[33]

    "I got 30 days' notice of the physical," Nugent told them. "I ceased cleansing my body. Two weeks before the test I stopped eating food with nutritional value. A week before, I stopped going to the bathroom. I did it in my pants. My pants got crusted up." [33]

    Nugent dismissed the veracity of these statements, saying "You've got to realize that these interviewers would arrive with glazed eyes and I would make stories up." He explained that he did not go to Vietnam because he had a one-year student deferment. When questioned, he admitted that he had "not wanted to get his ass blown off in Vietnam," but made note of a tour he made with the USO in 2004 to Fallujah and Afghanistan as support of his assertion that "I am not a coward." He also said that "Because I failed to serve in Vietnam, I feel an obligation now, to do everything I can to support those defending our freedom. Do I feel guilt and embarrassment? Yes."[33]

    I hope he has some ppl who have his best interest in mind who will school him on getting a grip. Yea, so he has some clout to what he says, but acting like a raving lunatic will cancel out every valid argument a person has.

    Ted Nugent is and has always been very adamantly anti-drug so I can definitely see why he would make up crazy **** to tell High Times magazine. That's hilarious.

    I think he's the most annoying person I've ever seen via media. But crazy... I don't know. What he was saying in the video was pretty much what every conservative says with some screams added. I find the screaming annoying and can't imagine why anybody would find it amusing. If there were somebody I agreed with who acted like him, I'd wish he would shut up so he didn't make my positions seem idiotic by coming out of somebody who acts possessed.

    Ted ROCKS..... I remember him arguing with some peta idiot on hunting and she said that he just wanted to slaughter animals to which he replied:

    "If I wanted to slaughter animals, I'd own a chicken farm"......


    The depth of his retort was lost on her.....

    You may not agree with it, but you have to admit that acting like that keeps people tuned in. Hell, if I knew that he was going to act that way during every show I'd watch or listen religiously.

    I don't agree with the Nuge on a lot of stuff, but I have tremendous respect for the fact that he has the balls to stand up for what he believes in and doesn't give a rat's ass what anyone else thinks. We need more people like that.

    As you can imagine, I agree with most everything he says....

    I don't get how people can not agree with this.

    Re: How Crazy Is Glenn Beck?

    To me Beck is nothing more than an entertainer who uses theatrics and drama to impress his audience. I don't take anything he says very seriously, but I don't believe he is what I'd call crazy. It's more like singing to an opera. He's fits in better at Fox than he did with CNN.
