These Libs Tried To Silence Ted Nugent, But He Fired Back So Hard They Didn’t Know What Hit Them

After an Indian tribe in Idaho cancelled a planned Ted Nugent concert at its casino earlier this week, detractors in other states have joined the effort to compel organizers elsewhere to call off his upcoming shows.

One such initiative, focused on a performance this weekend in Oshkosh, Wis., got a response from the outspoken conservative rocker.

“I take it as a badge of honor that such unclean vermin are upset by me and my positive energy,” he said in an interview published by the Appleton Post Crescent.

The performance, set to be part of a music festival called Waterfest, was first targeted by protesters who published a petition online to prevent his appearance. A local penned a letter to the editor demanding Nugent be kept out of the festival, a sentiment echoed by critics just days before he is set to perform.

See, this is what I don’t understand. If you don’t like him, no one is forcing you to go to his show. Why do you feel the need to silence those with a dissenting opinion instead of just ignoring them? I don’t like hearing about bitches, racial slurs,  and what not in songs, but I don’t personally care that they perform in my area. I just don’t buy tickets to the show. It really is that easy.

Border crisis: Central American leaders convening at White House

President Barack Obama is summoning Central American leaders to the White House to discuss the influx of young immigrants from their countries to the U.S., hoping to show presidential action even as Congress remains deeply split over proposals to stem the crisis on the border.

The meeting comes as the administration is considering creating a pilot program giving refugee status to young people from Honduras, White House officials said Thursday. The plan would involve screening youths in their home country to determine whether they qualify for refugee status. The program would be limited and would start in Honduras but could be expanded to include other Central American countries.

GOP Maine gov. is doing something revolutionary with food stamps and welfare

Maine’s Republican governor on Wednesday launched a push to make more “able-bodied” people work for their food stamps.

“People who are in need deserve a hand up, but we should not be giving able-bodied individuals a handout,’’ said Gov. Paul R. LePage.

LePage will reportedly stop seeking a federal waiver — issued at the height of the Great Recession — allowing some food stamp recipients to bypass requirements that they work or volunteer, according to local news channel WCSH.

About 12,000 of the state’s residents receiving $15 million annually in food stamps are considered to be able-bodied by Maine’s Department of Health and Human Services DHHS, which administers the aid. That means that they are between the ages of 18 and 49, have no dependents and are not pregnant or disabled.

In the next three months, those who are deemed able-bodied must work or volunteer with a community organization for 20 hours a week or lose their aid.

Nice! I hope this catches on! It is time we actually do hand ups, I agree there. No more handing it over… we need to get people up and help them learn to be self sufficient. Welfare and food stamps are supposed to be there to assist while you get back on your feet, not sustain you for the duration of your life. Let’s help get people on their feet for once!

A Man Went to the Hospital to Have a Routine Procedure Performed. He Woke Up to a Horrifying Discovery

An Alabama man filed a lawsuit against a hospital this week after he said he went to the medical facility for a routine circumcision and awoke to learn that his penis had been amputated instead.

The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Jefferson County Circuit Court, according to AL.com. The Urology Centers of Alabama, the Simon-Williamson Clinic and two doctors are listed as defendants.

“When the plaintiff … awoke from his aforesaid surgical procedure, his penis was amputated,” the lawsuit alleges, adding that the man “never gave consent for the complete or partial amputation of his penis.”

New Obama rule could force cities to house illegals

The Obama administration, in July 2013, quietly introduced a new regulation that critics say will dramatically increase Washington’s power over local zoning laws in every city and town that accepts federal block grants through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

And it’s the federal grants that could be used as a hook in the nose of these cities, forcing them to house illegal immigrants against their will.

Some are calling it the “Common Core of local zoning” that has flown under the radar for nearly a year. Instead of the U.S. Department of Education dictating education standards to local school districts, this rule change would allow HUD to influence zoning laws from the biggest cities down to the tiniest towns.

The proposed rule, which is set to take effect in October, would put teeth on the Fair Housing Act of 1968 by providing a set of standards, guidelines and goals, then use data to “measure” and “assess” how well a local community is meeting its Fair Housing obligations.

Some say the new rule will lead to “racial quotas” and will be exploited by HUD to aggressively absorb the nation’s swelling population of illegal immigrants into communities that are trying to keep them out.

HUD’s proposed “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule” showed up in the Federal Register on July 19, 2013. The rule has the backing of special-interest groups that promote open borders. One such group, with close ties to President Obama, is the Council of La Raza, which filed a public comment in favor of the rule.

La Raza said most illegal immigrants don’t know their rights and “fear deportation,” thus making them susceptible to housing discrimination.

Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., defined the proposed rule in stark terms, saying it would lead to racial quotas and amounts to an “assault on the suburbs.”

He authored an amendment passed in the House of Representatives last month that would prohibit HUD from implementing the rule. The amendment was successfully attached to the Transportation, HUD and Related Agencies Appropriations Act for the 2015 fiscal year. A version of the bill has now been introduced in the Senate by Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah. But with that body controlled by Democrats, Lee faces an uphill battle.

Gosar told WND Thursday he was encouraged that Lee had taken up the challenge.

“The proposed HUD Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule is another federal government mandate forced on the American people by an ideological administration looking to design a misguided utopian vision of local communities across the country,” Gosar said.

Gutierrez Wants To “Punish” Us For Respecting The Law And Being Legal Citizens And Whatnot…

“We need to raise our voices, make ourselves citizens, sign up to vote and punish those who speak ill and criminalize children who come to our border,” Mr. Gutierrez said in Spanish at the weekend La Raza conference, Breitbart reported.

Because voting out of spite and as revenge always works out really well in the end.

Don’t forget… you end up punishing yourself, too.
