NUGENT: Corzine the Corrupt

Where there is billowing, suffocating smoke, there generally is fire. The dark smoke of corruption is billowing around former Democratic senator, New Jersey governor, Goldman Sachs bigwig and MF Global Chairman and CEO Jon Corzine. A pall of suspicion has followed Corzine the Corrupt's career like flies at a summer barbecue. Published December 19, 2011

NUGENT: Poor parental choices make poor children

The truth can be very ugly, rather discomforting and downright painful, but it remains the truth, whether you like it or admit it or not. The U.S. Census Bureau recently reported that the number of American children living in poverty is on the rise, with almost one-third of American children living in what the bureau defines as poverty. Let's make one thing perfectly clear: This is not the fault of the kids. Published December 16, 2011

NUGENT: Occupy stooges on parade

At least the Three Stooges were hilarious. The Occupy stooges are much different, though they certainly qualify for classic numskull stooges nonetheless. They are dirty, political punks. I seriously doubt the majority of them could identify five reasons why they are protesting. No one else in the country can. Published December 14, 2011

NUGENT: Captain Trainwreck's White House whitewash

The current Occupiers of the White House will claim the slight dip in the unemployment rate from 9 percent to 8.6 percent is proof the economy is beginning to lumber out of the recession they imposed on it. Don't believe the spin. The economy continues to sink. Once the employment data is analyzed and the economic truth comes out, it will be seen that one of the probable reasons for the dip in the unemployment rate is that 315,000 more Americans have quit looking for work, making them persona non grata when it comes to being counted in employment statistics.

NUGENT: All-American Thanksgiving Day

On this Thanksgiving, when all of us have so many reasons to be thankful, pausing to give thanks is more and more an afterthought in America. Published November 23, 2011

NUGENT: No more child-abuse excuses

We don't really care anymore? Oh, sure, some of us are shocked to the core about the child-sex-abuse scandal at Penn State University. Some of us are genuinely angry and wonder aloud on talk-radio stations how this could happen again. Published November 18, 2011

NUGENT: Nobody needs Michael Moore's hypocritical advice

Idiots are easily manipulated. They are useful pawns, and that's about it. Consider the stooges of the fledgling movement "Occupy Wall Street." These useful idiots are clamoring for social justice, as if they don't have enough of that already. Published October 14, 2011

NUGENT: Iran's voodoo extremists trump our enviro-nuts

In yet further proof that Iran is a country of insecure and intolerant voodoo extremists, as I wrote this, this there was a possibility a Christian pastor would be executed because he would not recant his Christian faith and embrace Islam in the land of Allah freaks. Published October 7, 2011

NUGENT: Fighting in the streets

New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg stated that he's worried that American young people will begin to riot in our streets because of their unemployment. Published September 30, 2011

Morgan Freeman

NUGENT: Morgan Freeman reads from the wrong script

The ugliest form of racism is accusing others of racism when there is none. Throwing around the terms "racist" and "racism" has been a tactic of the left for decades. Surely we can all agree that Martin Luther King Jr. would not endorse such an ugly tactic, as he wanted us to judge each other on the content of our character rather than our skin color.

NUGENT: Happy National Hunting and Fishing Day

It is sad to admit that hardly anyone knows what the acronyms SCI, DU, NSSF, NWTF and RMEF stand for or what those organizations do. That's not your fault but rather the hunting community's dismal failure to conduct fundamental public relations. As public relations go, the hunting community couldn't sell a blanket to a naked man in a blizzard. Published September 23, 2011

NUGENT: Social Security is a Ponzi scheme, only worse

My good Gov. Rick Perry is spot-on, again. Social Security has much more in common with a criminal enterprise known as a Ponzi scheme than not. As I stated in "Ted, White, and Blue: The Nugent Manifesto," this scam is anti-social and insecure. Published September 21, 2011

NUGENT: 'American Con Job Act'

The president is out and out campaigning for re-election while promoting his latest half-baked half-trillion-dollar "American Con Job Act," which he says will generate jobs and jump-start the sluggish economy, which continues to slide south. Published September 15, 2011

NUGENT: Laborious Day, 2011

With 1 in 5 men not working and collecting unemployment benefits and who knows how many other Americans working for less pay than before, Labor Day 2011 should be called Unemployment and Underemployment Day. Published September 2, 2011

NUGENT: I want a voodoo-vermin body count

President Obama laid out a timetable for our troops to withdraw from Afghanistan, with 33,000 of our brave warriors to be out of there by next summer and all of them to be out by 2014. Published August 31, 2011

NUGENT: Lemonade-stand Nazis

Only a soulless bureaucratic punk would authorize or advocate shutting down a kid's sidewalk lemonade stand. And a normal, thinking, reasoning human being would be incapable of such a callous, power-abusing act of indecency. But in America today, the abject, heartbreaking reality is that such subhumans not only exist - they now infest our government like an evil pod of nonthinking death-row criminals. God help us all.

NUGENT: Proven results trump hope and change

No doubt there is a foggy malaise hovering over the country. Americans have lost faith in our president, consumer confidence is bottoming out, unemployment remains high, the debt keeps rising, the real estate market remains soft, and the stock market is sputtering like an out-of-tune country-western steel guitar.

NUGENT: Rise of the goons

Did you really expect anything different? From London to Philadelphia to Milwaukee, goons are rioting in the streets. And guess what? I don't believe it is the fundamental fault of the goon squads that they're rioting, although there's no excuse for beating people and destroying property. Published August 12, 2011

NUGENT: Presidential master of economic disaster

President Obama still doesn't get it. In his weekly radio address, he stated, "We've got to put politics aside to get some things done. That's what the American people expect of us." Published August 10, 2011
