"Senator Kid Rock": Everything You Need to Know About His Politics
Quote | Reply
Mr. American Badass, of the state of Michigan, is contemplating a run for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Debbie Stabenow, who's up for reelection in 2018. The hopeful "Senator Kid Rock" would run as a Republican, that much is certain, given his past statements on various positions and his past endorsement of Mitt Romney in 2012 and other utterances he's made since. He also counts himself a friend of Donald Trump.

Rolling Stone magazine breaks down where he's at on various issues. Other than that I find this whole thing entertaining -- because Kid Rock is first and foremost a GREAT entertainer and musician -- I have no opinions on the matter and I'm staying away from politics. Even the stuff as funny as this would be. I also had no idea he was an ordained minister. So you-all get to discuss religion AND politics on this one, both of which seem to still be staples of the Lavender Room Lifestyle(tm). ;-)

On Gun Control

“Getting rid of them is not the answer. The guy who got Osama bin Laden was on Fox News. His daddy raised him in Montana, hunting, fishing. He got it from hunting. What that kid knows is fucking valuable. Shooting 200 yards is hard. To be able to make 1,000-yard shots? I’m glad we have some people like that on our side.” – Rolling Stone, February 2015

On Gay Marriage and Abortion

“I am definitely a Republican on fiscal issues and the military, but I lean to the middle on social issues. I am no fan of abortion, but it’s not up to a man to tell a woman what to do. As an ordained minister I don’t look forward to marrying gay people, but I’m not opposed to it.” – The Guardian, January 2015

I'd guess that his views as written in your post are actually pretty mainstream.

I know a ton Republicans who agree with him on those topics.

Who knew he was an ordained minister?

Has any minister been forced by the govt. to marry gay people?

Also....why do you constantly claim you're staying away from politics while posting political red meat into the lion cage every 15 minutes?

I don't post "political red meat." It's just that there's almost no subject nowadays that isn't politicized by one side or the other. Have I jumped into all those "Smoke," "More Smoke," "Trump" and "Trump Jr." threads? ;-)

Hey, I don't write the headlines. I just report on 'em LOL!

Before he left he was full on Breitbart so I think he is redoing his tactics. He is pulling the, "What? I mean I am just saying."

With this platform how can he go wrong?

Bawitdaba da bang da bang diggy diggy diggy. Shake the boogie said up jump the boogie.

And when he gets stumped, no Sarah Palin deer in headlights deal. He takes on taxes, law enforcement reform, opioid crisis
And this is for the questions that don't have an answer, he midnight glancers, and the topless dancers, the can of freaks, cars packed with speakers, the G's with the forty's and the chicks with beepers, the northern lights and the Southern Comfort, and it don't even matter if your veins are punctured. All the crackheads, the critics, the cynics, and all my heroes at the methadone clinics All you bastards at the I.R.S. For the crooked cops and the cluttered desks, for the shots of Jack and the caps of meth, half pints of love and a fifth of stress, all the hookers that are tricking out in Hollywood, and for my hoods of the world misunderstood.

I said it's all good and it's all in fun. Now get in the pit and try to love someone

For gangs and illegal immigration, federal land use, prison reform, and hunger in America - as well as a shout out to a 70's fugitive

All the gangs gettin' money and the heads they bang - bang, wild mustangs, the porno flicks, all my homies in the county in cell block six, the grits when there ain't enough eggs to cook, and to D.B. Cooper and the money he took

You can look for answers but that ain't fun. Now get in the pit and try to love someone.

So to summarize:
Bawitdaba da bang da bang diggy diggy diggy. Shake the boogie said up jump the boogie. And it's all in fun. But answers aren't fun so don't look, now get in the pit and try to love someone.

This actually may be more coherent than some of the shit Spicer and Huckabee-Sanders has to say.

We are so fucked.

No, I'm sincerely trying not to troll or fool around in all those politics (or religion) threads. What's the point in all that? And life's too short at any rate.

Like I said; everything's become so politicized these days there's almost nothing that can't be turned towards politics, unfortunately.

So all it takes for you to be down with someone is for them to just same meaningless shit and not make a point. Breitbart has taught you well.

Two bad choices. At least one potential choice for us could be someone entertaining and who has lived an actual life with relatability to lower & middle class humans.

Dear god, I can't believe it's come to this and that I'd say that about his potential candidacy. 2016 was a death knell to normalcy.

Laugh about it, shout about it
When you've got to choose
Every way you look at this you lose

Our nation turns its lonely eyes to you

Jolting Joe has left and gone away

We are one short step from full-on Idiocracy, sir. Our entertainers have become politicians and our politicians are now entertainers. Cloud-cuckoo land, we are yours to command. ;-)

Indeed. I long for the good ol' days when we had qualified candidates.

Like Jesse Ventura, say. Or Sarah Palin.

Seems like a fairly anodyne statement from The Bullgod: ;-)

Sorry, but I have to drop off this thread. It's treading dangerously close to a full-on discussion of politics, and I've sworn that off. Keeps me from getting ulcers, you see. LOL!

Man, we gave an inch with those two but it became a country instead of a mile.

But we'll survive even this.

Dude. The subject line that you yourself wrote clearly states that it's a full-on discussion of politics.

HIS politics. Not OUR politics. Which is the direction that these threads inevitably turn toward. ;-)
