NUGENT: NRA’S 142nd annual freedom party a huge success

I raced off stage in Tampa after throttling my 6511th high energy rockout, mopped up as much dripping sweat as I could, changed into dry clothes, grabbed a Gatorade and a sack of food, hung onto my gorgeous wife Shemane and headed to the airport lickity split. Published May 6, 2013

NUGENT: Bakers’ union ding-dong move endangers 18,000 jobs

In yet another never-ending series of terminal ding-dong moves, members of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union went on strike and drove Hostess out of business, providing one more stinking example of how labor unions can no longer have their cake and it eat it, too.

NUGENT: Our financial house is a disaster

One of my greatest pleasures is causing the noggins of fuzzy-headed simpletons to spin 'round and 'round. It is the definition of efficiency, as it simply takes a statement of truth and logic to set them off. Published November 15, 2012

NUGENT: Want a job? Vote for Romney

It boils down to this: If you want to grow the economy and get a job, vote for Mitt Romney. If you want more anti-business policies and counterproductive government welfare, vote for President Obama. Published October 16, 2012

NUGENT: Discovering ‘Ted Nugent’s Gun Country’

The jury is not still out on whether or not young Ted was uppity beyond compare. My youthful energy level was measured in ballistic Richter-scale increments. The term "whirling dervish" was invented in an attempt to explain my indefatigable life's velocity. Published October 9, 2012

NUGENT: McNugent rule: Automatic death penalty

What a psychotic piece of subhuman debris did on Jan. 11, 2011, outside a Tucson Safeway store where Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was holding a "meet and greet" with constituents was an unfathomable act of barbarism. Published September 3, 2012

NUGENT: Don’t let socialists win

The Republican and Democratic national conventions have the country thinking about the state of our increasingly socialistic government. Britain's Iron Lady, Margaret Thatcher, hit the bull's-eye when she said, "The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money." She, like the truth, rocks.

NUGENT: Crimes against Gibson guitars

My all-American sonic-bombast weapon of choice for 50 years has been those world-class pieces of musical art, the mighty Gibson guitar. I own a stunning arsenal of them. It wouldn't surprise me if some Fedzillastooge from Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.'s Department of Gunrunning Injustice will try to tell us American guitarslayers that we can only buy one fully automatic Gibson guitar a month. Published August 21, 2012

NUGENT: Conservation is not rocket science
