Poor Ted. Nobody understands him like I do. Too bad, because he's been dumped by the Waco Trib.

Just got a missive — unguided missile? — from my pal Ted Nugent saying he’s been fired by the Waco Tribune-Herald, which has new owners as of a couple of weeks ago....continue you on to read his missive.

And you can add him to the list of conservative psychos who don't understand what the First Amendment stands for.

Construct8ve, bold criticism is cool. It rocks. It can literally change the course and destiny of an individual, neighborhood, community, and nation. It is the most basic of our Constitutional rights — the 1st Amendment. Failing to criticize emboldens politicians to stay on course regardless how many icebergs are dead ahead. Political correctness is the cancer of journalism, not its cure.

America and Texas was born with a defiant streak. Those genes still flow through my veins. To request that I not criticize is to spit on the memory of those who gave birth to America. Again, I criticize where I believe criticism is due. That’s my civic job and your job as Americans. If the editor of this newspaper doesn’t like that, he will have to fire me. I will not surrender to his wrong demands.

In the words of another famous American military man, William Barrett

Travis, commander of the Alamo: God & Texas. Victory or death.

Who can forget the Alamo? He hits all the right notes this time, doesn't he? You have to read some of the comments for some real humor.
