Update on Our Guest-Post Invitation to Williamson Strong’s Jim Cheney

Posted by in Williamson Strong

Jim Cheney, principal of Prufrock Communications and a co-founder/spokesman for Williamson Strong, replied to our invitation to write a guest post by saying that he would do so on one condition: that we reveal our identities. Mr. Cheney says he has always been completely transparent about his involvement with Williamson Strong, and he expects such transparency from us as well. “If you want credibility, then you have to be accountable,” is how he put it. “So, to that end, if you are willing to address the public without the curtain,…read more

Williamson Strong’s Jim Cheney Responds to Our “Holiday Wish” Post

Posted by in Williamson Strong

We get some interesting mail, but this email in particular got our attention. It’s from none other than Jim Cheney, one of Williamson Strong’s co-founders, and it’s in response to our Dec. 12 post titled, “A Holiday Wish for Williamson Strong.” Mr. Cheney was gracious in his note to us, and we wanted to share his comments with our readers: Just wanted to let you know that I had a good chuckle reading your parody. Pretty clever. You know, if we all spent have [sic] as much time building consensus…read more

William Carter’s “2016” Column Is Misguided Diatribe Against Our Community

Posted by in Williamson Herald

We normally skip over the trite dribble that typifies William Carter’s musings in Williamson Herald’s editorial section, but his “Welcome, 2016, and good luck!” column caught our eyes and we actually read it. Big mistake. Unfortunately, we can’t “unread” it and reclaim the precious time we so egregiously wasted. It is tempting to chalk up our indiscretion to some down time over the holidays and try to put his adolescent diatribe out of our minds. (No disrespect intended toward adolescents.) However, sometimes an editorial is so distorted and hateful that…read more

A Holiday Wish for Williamson Strong

Posted by in Uncategorized, Williamson Strong

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through Strong house, Not a creature was stirring, ‘cause their hopes had been doused. Winter Solstice stockings were hung, by the chimney with care, In hopes that the New Year, would humiliation them spare. “What a year’s it’s been,” Jennifer said with a sigh, “At times things got so bad, I truly thought I would die.” From the bowels of the ship, Jen claimed Strong could be found, Now they’d sunk deeper, as the truth they kept bound. Sarah the lawyer, looking haggard…read more

Thanks, Rep. Casada, for Your Efforts to Protect Us from Terrorism

Posted by in Glen Casada

TN Rep. Glen Casada has taken some heat over remarks he made concerning the need to know more about the un-vetted Syrian refugees pouring into our state as a result of federal immigration policy. Mr. Casada was referring to people who may pose a threat to our security, and we are grateful for his efforts to keep Tennessee safe from terrorism. If someone wants to enter our country, we first need to know who that person is, and whether he or she is here to assimilate or annihilate. ISIS has…read more

Dr. Beth Burgos’ Religious Liberty Resolution: Read It for Yourself

Posted by in Beth Burgos, Bobby Hullett

WCS Board Member Dr. Beth Burgos’ religious liberty resolution has been drawing a lot of attention, and we understand that at least one other Tennessee county has submitted it for a vote. So, for counties that would like to consider using her resolution as a model, and for people who are interested in the specifics it contains, we have reproduced the resolution below. We planned to provide information about the upcoming town hall meeting to discuss Islam in our schools in this post, but the details are not yet available….read more

WCS Board Member Bobby Hullett, Victim Extraordinaire, Decries “Perverted Political Agenda”

Posted by in Bobby Hullett, Williamson Strong

The fur continues to fly over WCS Board Member Bobby Hullett’s treatment of those with concerns about how Islam is being taught in our public schools, and in particular his suggestion that they “pack up and move.” Concurrently, he claims to have been “taken out of context to serve a perverted political agenda” while doubling down on his “move” comments, according to a Nov. 5 Williamson Herald article. Said Mr. Hullett: “You have heard me say this previously, I will say it again here…” Please don’t. As you pointed out,…read more

WCS Board Member Bobby Hullett: Agree with Me or Move

Posted by in Bobby Hullett

 “Conceit is God’s gift to little men.” (Ancient Chinese Proverb) We don’t know if Williamson Country Schools Board Member Bobby Hullett is getting his talking points from Jim “Prufrock” Cheney; or from Susan Drury and her SEIU colleagues; or whether he is simply spilling out whatever comes into his head at a given moment, but we think his latest antic is embarrassing, to say the least. We are not, for now, going to get into the merits of the concerns many have about the way in which Islam is being…read more

Our Post about Brentwood Attorney Roger Abramson: “Clickbait” or Legitimate Ethics Question?

Posted by in Attorney Roger Abramson

We want to start by thanking Brentwood Attorney Roger Abramson for his note reminding us that it’s been a while since we updated our blog. Like most people in Williamson County, we have pretty busy schedules. While we are keenly interested in what goes on in our community, our lives don’t revolve around local politics or blogging. But Mr. Abramson apparently is among those who have missed us, so we’ll try to do better with our updates in the future. Mr. Abramson accuses us of engaging in a “clickbait” tactic…read more

Brentwood Attorney Roger Abramson & the Board of Professional Responsibility’s Code of Ethics

Posted by in Attorney Roger Abramson

On Wednesday, we will see how well the attempts to retaliate against conservatives groups and individuals, including a coalition of homeschoolers, pan out when the Tennessee Registry of Election Finance board hears new complaints for alleged violations of state election law. In June, Gael Morkel got her 15 minutes of fame by filing a complaint with the Registry against the Williamson County Homeschool Coalition, alleging it acted like a PAC in last year’s election. We don’t think it was coincidental that Ms. Morkel took this action a few weeks after…read more
