Re: “It Starts With Richard Fulton

The Watauga group very successfully set Nashville on the course to its present place of prominence. I have heard tales of the group avoiding liberal "activists, Native American groups, NAACP, a long list but as one might expect most had their hand out. Dick Fulton and back in the day Democrats would not be welcome on PITW.

Who knows, if it were not for a liquor- by- the- drink victory, there might be no SCENE today?

Re: “What Carol Swain Got Wrong

Speaking of governors, the more I see of his successors, the more I miss Ned Ray McWherter.

Re: “Beer, Bacon, Burlesque: A Cautionary Tale

I emailed Sean about a refund per his facebook reply to me days ago, and have not gotten a follow up email. Promises are just words unless you follow up to them. This guy and his company is a joke.

Re: “Woman Sues Corrections Corp. Over Strip Search To Prove She Was Menstruating (UPDATED)

The point of the search was to make sure she was on her period so she was authorized to receive the CCA-approved sanitary napkin; it's in the article. Can't waste those things.

Re: “It Starts With Richard Fulton

"Reporters were instructed by publishers never to mention Watauga in the city's newspapers."

Kinda like anything negative about Obama up until recently.

Re: “Women of Davidson County, Rethink Your Opposition to the Madison Swingers Club!

If people don't want their kids exposed to what goes on inside a swingers club, strip joint, adult bookstore, or your neighborhood bar, then do the same thing you do about keeping them out of someone's home that you don't approve of, DON'T LET YOUR KIDS GO IN THERE! Or I should say, "attempt" to go in there. It's a private club and they not only check ID's, but you have to have a club membership to get in.

It isn't open during school hours.

The place isn't open to the public, it's a private club, it has no flashing signs outside, you can't see in through the windows, and no one is naked and having sex in the parking lot!


And guess what folks? For all you holier than tho folks, some of your fellow church members are probably members of this club and you don't know it!

Your next door neighbors might be doing the same thing inside their house, right next door to you, that people do in this club!

You don't know that your kid's teacher, librarian, the cashier at your local grocery store, the sweet, middle aged, seemingly unattractive bank teller, who cashes your checks; you don't know it, but MANY of these people are swingers, you just don't know it!

I've never had a stripper, or a swinger, knock on my front door, and uninvitedly solicit me to come to their club.

But I have had people of various faiths, solicit me to come to their church.

So, who is pushing their beliefs and personal lifestyles on who?

So, let's forget about what people want to do behind closed doors, out of sight of everyone else! This is going to do NO HARM to anyone's virtues, who doesn't want to go inside, and it's NOT going to hurt any kids!

Re: “15th Annual Country Music Critics' Poll

Love Miranda, Lee Ann, Sturgill and Angaleena's albums. Doesn't really matter the order but for Miranda to sell as many albums as she does w/ songs of substance is really a triumph. It is one thing to create and perform great original songs but another to actually craft them in a way to appeal to the masses. Lambert has been doing that since even before radio gave her any attention (finally w/ Revolution radio came aboard). She had platinum album w/o radio- very hard thing to achieve! Anyway now if we could just give radio a good kick and play more ladies. It is getting ridiculous that they play so many male artists' songs, especially since many, many sound the same. Also luv Lee Ann Womack making a grand comeback after all these years. So glad to see her music getting a spotlight on it.

Re: “Women of Davidson County, Rethink Your Opposition to the Madison Swingers Club!

The club really doesn't let any kids in the club. I'm a swinger myself and is a member of the club. Everything is consensual in there. No means no and their is no forcing no one if you do you are thrown out n will no longer be in there ir port of the club. You ppl that are oppose to this kind of club are ridiculous. You are not oppose of ppl selling drugs two houses down from you. Let us swingers live our lifestyle and enjoy it. We are not bothering no one. Also all races are welcome in the club.

Re: “What Carol Swain Got Wrong

@john: It doesn't matter what other people want. Until a liberal is elected governor you represent most thought in Tennessee. You need to consider it a plus when the proglibs attack you personally instead of having a cogent response for your thoughts.

Mr. Fox needs to add to that stack of papers he is studying if he believes NOLA's transition to an all charter district is a success story.

Re: “Woman Sues Corrections Corp. Over Strip Search To Prove She Was Menstruating (UPDATED)

I don't get it. If she turned over the sanitary napkin, what was the point of the search? What security interest was served by proving that she was menstruating?

Re: “Best New Artist Angaleena Presley on why she'd rather make history than make money

I like Angaleena but the Pistol Annies didn't open the door- Miranda Lambert did! Miranda had been writing her own songs and they had been hits w/ critics and fans. She has now done it for a decade. Her success in writing her own albums (first 3 wrote almost every songs)trailblazed the way. Her success made the Pistol Annies possible. All of the three of ya definitely made great music and success but no way would you have got the music deals before Miranda back ya. After the Pistol Annies success Ash and Ang were FINALLY given deals. Thank Goodness for that b/c Angaleena and Ashley were great voices needed to be heard. In 2011 after the Pistol success it definitely helped Kacey and Brandy, etc but lets not forget all that Miranda Lambert has done for women in country. I believe it is not talked about enough.
