  •  So, he didn't want to go shoot 'gooks' (14+ / 0-)

    in Vietnam, but he's all fired up to shoot fellow Americans.  What a brilliant motherfucker.

      so thank you for your service but gook is what your called the enemy back then.  It is not appropriate language as
      you probably know, there are some fine people in Vietnam.
      We went into that country and try to get past that name for the Vietnamese people.  

      I know combat vets call the Vietnamese people these names but please do not refer to them in this manner.
      It will get you hr'd and I feel you may be angry over the fact that Nugent is such a coward.  which he is.
      He is more than a coward.

        I used it in the form a low-life like Ted Nugent would, and probably does.  Get it?  Look at it in the context in which it's presented instead of a prejudicial look to HR.
        No, I'm not a vet but thanks anyway.  
        I admire the Vietnamese people as a whole, much more than some Americans I know, and would love to visit that country.  I don't like the feeling of having to defend myself in this manner since I'm probably pretty far from whomever you imagine 'gatorcog' is.

          We had some folks on here back in the fall and the name got thrown around pretty good and I certainly am not the word police.  Some folks still use the term without even thinking that it is hurtful because many are still in that frame of mind.  

          I apologize.  Nugent probably does use that and N...er and
          B..ch...and many many more words we wouldn't like.  He is lower than what he did in his pants.  IMO he is a danger to society as well as those who idolize him.  

          I met an old Vietnamese woman the other day here in Florida and she was about 78.  She seemed so pleasant and still somewhat apprehensive about we Americans.  I felt bad.   We had a pleasant chat and she was clearly suffering from some health including PTSD issues.
