Here a little tidbit from another site from a member that was at the inauguration.

The grand finale of the Texas Inaugural Ball Tuesday night in Austin was none other than Uncle Ted. Wearing a shirt of the “Stars and Bars” , he came out waving a giant US Flag and then played his famous (at least to his fans) version of the Star Spangled Banner. That opening was met with some really funny looks from many long time regulars at the event who aren’t even comfortable with some of the newer renditions heard at the opening of football games.

He continued the show with the hunting song which featured hunting videos on the two giant screens. Always extremely outspoken for the rights of hunters, he made typical Uncle Ted remarks and gave a salute to Gov. Rick Perry, an avid hunter.

Continuing his very politically incorrect show he sang a lengthened version of “Kiss My A$$” with a couple of new verses dedicated to Democrats and other political groups. The very partisan Republican crowd was much more comfortable with that song….LOL

And then came a giant, fully body rendition of Osama Bin Laden lowered from the ceiling. After a great musical fanfare and some choice lyrics, Uncle Ted slid his guitar to his back and was handed a Red, White and Blue compound bow. Then to a cheering crowd, he made a 15 yard heart shot and didn’t make any excuses that he believed that’s what really needs to happen to the terrorist.

It was a good party.

Expatriate, I am sorry. It's just that I wanted to make Don's first impression of Ted, well, a memorable one.

I'll probably get hammered for saying this, but he's too "in your face". There are better ways to get your point across without being rude & obnoxious. His antics do not impress me. I just keep in mind that he's an aging hard-rocker looking for attention! Laugh

I thing Ted's the man. He says what we all want to say but don't have the berries to. He doesn't hide who he is or who we are as hunters. He celebrates hunting and doen't walk up to a dead deer as many hunting show hosts would and say gee I'm sorry, you're so pretty I wish I didn't have to kill you like they actually mean that crap. He says I killed you and now I will eat you and that is that. If we have to apologize as hunters to try to sway the minds of bunny huggers that won't be swayed anyways than I don't want to be one. Ted's good at offending people, especially people who need a little offending sometimes to wake up from this polotically correct garbage that has been shoved down our throats for the last 15 years.

Hank,

It's not the bunny hugger's minds we need to sway, they are already lost. It's those undecided we shouldn't offend, key word is offend. The hunting and the killing part obviously doesn't matter to them one way or another. But if we offend their senses they just might take another look. Those undecided are not really undecided I don't think, they don't think the whole matter is worth the fight the pro's and the anti's are having. Unless we show them we are nothing but in your face morons, not calling Ted I moron yet. Didn't even know who he was when this started. There's been a lot of nasty stuff done by the anti's and not much has worked. I think it;s because the undecided don't care but also don't want to be offended.

If we go back here, one guy show's a photo of him in a far less than good light to represent out intrest's. Got my attention. But then another poster showed the same guy at the inauguration in Texas and he doesn't appear so outrageious,,,,,until he start's shooting arrows at Bin Laden's photo. It was mentioned that he made typical Uncle Ted remarks, I have no idea what they are but could guess from what I've read here. Looking strictly at the photo's, the only offensive thing I see is shooting arrows at Bin Laden. If your trying to sway the undecided, there's better ways than shooting arrows at his photo on stage. About Bin Laden, nobody is undecided but many refuse to stoop to his level!

The antis are running around saying that hunting is offensive. If we walk on eggshells to avoid offending anyone, we help their agenda by feeding the idea that people may get offended by what we're doing.

There are a lot of left-wing groups, ideas, and values out there that have worked their way into the mainstream from the fringes. They didn't do it by being reactive and letting their opposition intimidate them into submission. They did it by speaking out and holding their heads high. Confidence is contagious and keeps the wolves at bay. Timidity suggests weakness and invites attack.

If you act timid and embarrassed about something, people will assume you have something to be embarrassed about. Yes, Ted can be brash. But the heart of his message is that we shouldn't be afraid to stand tall and speak our minds with pride, remembering that the other guys are the nutjobs, not us.

Very true. I, for one, am so tired of this political correctness that people try to impose.

Think about it - it is everywhere, even in hunting. No one says, except for perhaps Uncle Ted, "man, I went out today and killed a nice 8 point." Nope, they say they "harvested" a deer. Harvested or not, that deer is dead.

Remember, in the end, we are the ones with the guns. lol

I never use the word "harvested". Always seemed to me like it's saying killing is bad. The undecided know we're killing things. I think this word "harvested" came about to make the anti's feel better.

I do not walk on egg shells about what I do but neither do I feel a need to get in anybodys face about it. The anti's want you upset and raging, that helps make their case they think. I don't worry much if people get offended by what I do but I don't make an effort to offend them either. Kinda sounds like Ted does. Thats called "in your face".
