NUGENT: You have the right to remain stupid

You have the right to remain stupid, and what you say and do can and will be used against you in the court of public opinion.

NUGENT: United Nations gun grabbers at it again

The despots, thugs, scoundrels, punks and various crooks at the United Nations have it all wrong again. Imagine that.

NUGENT: Independence Day revival

Thomas Jefferson would be shocked and appalled if he could see what America has done to this grand experiment since he drafted the Declaration of Independence.

A celebration is in order now that our superhuman special ops warriors expertly drilled a hole through international terrorist Osama bin Laden's twisted-brain housing unit.

NUGENT: America needs Fox News

You can bet that if George Bush were president, the media would be out for blood.
