NUGENT: Burning desire

I don't support burning the Koran any more than I support someone holding a blowtorch to a Michael Moore fraudumentary. If you don't want to read the Koran or watch Mr. Moore's fraudumentaries, don't. Published September 17, 2010

NUGENT: Fedzilla strangles 9/11 recovery

What a pathetic statement that ugly hole at Ground Zero represented for so long about how far America has fallen. For the first eight years after Sept. 11, 2001, there was nothing but a hole where the Twin Towers once stood. To put this in perspective, it took just four years to build the Twin Towers.

NUGENT: A salute to Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, et al.

I joyfully bring you a glowing report as I wrap up my tour across America 2010, where nightly, all summer long, I have been privileged to meet with great, hardworking and hard-playing American families from every imaginable walk of life in 68 cities. I share with you a powerful, united message of unstoppable good will, decency, indefatigable, positive spirit and a herculean work ethic that is absolutely dedicated to bringing America back from this embarrassing brink of unaccountable upside-down government gone mad.

NUGENT: Every day is Labor Day at Camp Nuge

Sadly, there isn't much to celebrate this Labor Day. With official unemployment hovering near 10 percent and real unemployment at around 15 percent, many fellow Americans are laboring just to find a job. With the job market so bleak, some Americans actually have quit looking. That doesn't even register with me. Published September 2, 2010

NUGENT: Charging the mound over Clemens

Fedzilla is taking former baseball pitcher Roger Clemens to federal court on charges that he lied to Congress regarding his previous sworn testimony about using steroids. Published August 30, 2010

NUGENT: The Middle East's widdle Hitler

There are a few dangerous things we can all agree on. For example, we surely can agree it's not wise to pet rabid dogs, commune with grizzly bears, swim in piranha-infested rivers or, of course, take a ride with me in a rental car. Published August 23, 2010

NUGENT: Happy fang and claw perfection, America

It is upon us, and there is not a damn thing anyone can do about it. Call me weird, but I do wintertime stuff each winter, springtime stuff each spring, summertime stuff each summer, and hallelujah, fall hunting season stuff every day of the fall hunting season. I cant help myself. I'm such a hopelessly organic nature boy. There really is a call of the wild, Martha, and I hear it loud and clear. Published August 23, 2010

NUGENT: Muslim mosque-teers

There are no words to express the outrage Americans would have expressed if the Japanese government had proposed to build a memorial to their fallen soldiers at Pearl Harbor immediately following World War II. We can only hope President Truman would have ordered our military to carpet-bomb and firebomb the Japanese again for being so rude and stupid. Published August 19, 2010

For the first time since the 1980s, Social Security will dole out more in benefits than it collects in taxes for the next two years. Those deficits will add to the overall federal deficit. (Associated Press)

NUGENT: Trade Fedzilla for fair tax

Simpler is always better, especially as it pertains to Fedzilla, whose mission is to complicate things to such a degree that ordinary Americans no longer understand how our government works or who it works for. Published August 16, 2010

NUGENT: Extermination crew to the rescue

As leftists gain confidence with their stranglehold on Congress, the media and the White House, it is getting easier all the time to identify their suicidal tendencies. Common-sense Americans are increasingly waking up to the Obama fan club that hates entrepreneurialism, capitalism and the American Dream of excellence. Published August 11, 2010

NUGENT: Bureaucrats burn our bucks

Sen. John McCain and Sen. Tom Coburn just released a report on more of Fedzilla's insane and wasteful blowtorching of our tax dollars on things we don't need or want and only someone mentally deranged would allow. After reading an article that illuminated the most wasteful examples of torching our tax dollars, I'm surprised my request for a federal grant to study gopher hunting with grenades on the White House lawn was denied. Seemed like such a gimme. Published August 9, 2010

NUGENT: Loco motion

This may not be the end, but I think I can see it from here. Ever so hesitatingly and oh so painfully, I hate to admit that I am beginning to wonder why Americans even bother to vote anymore on controversial issues. If the America-hating liberals, socialists and Marxists in charge don't like the outcome of a decision by "we the people," they either sue and get a black-robed, leftist federal judge to declare the results unconstitutional or they get the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to sue for them. Hey, if you can't beat us at the polls, take us to court or sue us in the bizarro world of the corrupt American anti-justice court system. Freedom for sale at what price? Published August 6, 2010

NUGENT: Swamp rats along the Potomac

Instead of "draining the swamp" of corruption, as Nancy Pelosi promised Americans in 2006, under her tenure as speaker of the House, the congressional swamp has grown more putrid, more corrupt, and even more out-of-touch with ordinary Americans. Published August 4, 2010

NUGENT: Drunk on stupid

In these tough and turbulent economic times, we need to look for small things we can be thankful for. Published August 3, 2010

Illustration: MAOBAMA by Greg Groesch for The Washington Times

NUGENT: It is us

Barack Hussein Obama did not sneak into power. An army of clueless, disconnected, ignorant Americans invited him to bring his Marxist, glaringly anti-American jihad into our lives. Published July 30, 2010

NUGENT: America's economic hari-kari

Anyone with a lick of common sense will tell you that when you are in a hole, you need to quit digging. Continuing to dig will only create a larger problem. Do schools teach this? Published July 23, 2010

NUGENT: Dear Mexico …

Bienvenido. Welcome. As the November elections draw nearer, political campaigns most assuredly will heat up and become more tense and filled with rancor. As with any election, you have to dig for the truth. Published July 22, 2010

NUGENT: Department of Injustice

With each passing day, common sense and the free market take a beating by big-government Marxists and the Mao Zedong fan club in the District of Clowns who believe feeding the bloated, ineffective Fedzilla is the right course for America. If Thomas Jefferson were alive today, he surely would call for an armed revolution. Published July 16, 2010

NUGENT: Differences between Carter and Obama? None.

Other than the Georgia peanut farmer turned governor and now a Chicago community rabble rouser turned senator, there is little substantive political difference between President Barack Obama and President Jimmy Carter. Published July 13, 2010

NUGENT: To err on the side of freedom is no error

In a world increasingly hellbent on abandoning logic and the ensuing escalation of Obama madness, it is clearly time for the maximum celebration of the good old, always reliable Uncle Ted crowbar of logic. Published July 9, 2010
