Atlas Shrugged Creeping Into North Knoxville!

WBIR did a story on my buddy McNabb’s office/residential building he’s been working on. He bought this horrible looking building on Broadway a couple of years ago, and he’s put a lot of hard work into it. I was over there about a month ago to see the almost complete office space. He’s also putting […]

Knoxville Overground Spring Gala Fundraiser

This one is truly over ground. Tomorrow night KO is hosting a gala on the 6th floor of the Sunsphere (that’s one floor above the Wig Shop). The public is welcomed to attend, just a cool $25, but there is a limit to only 120 guests. Official KO members, KO sponsors, and members of KO […]


Swine Flu in Knoxville at Bearden High School?

Just read djuggler’s tweet saying Bearden High School will be closed for a week. And his better half, cathymccaughan says, What good does it do to close the high school when the teens will be at the mall or movies every day? Just curious…do they close schools when someone gets the regular flu? It appears […]


Knoxville Tea Party Wrap Up

Imagine my surprise to find that in addition to the few fringe/dangerous/extremist wing nuts who ventured out to express their disagreement with the insane spending going on in Washington, a couple of thousand other folks showed up as well. After driving around for 30 minutes or so trying to find a parking spot (must’ve been […]

Some Tax Day and Tea Party Thought

Over on Facebook, a few of my friends have made some interesting remarks in their updates. One is an accountant who is fed up with the complexity and oppression of our tax laws. A couple of others are just hard working guys venting about, well, the complexity and oppression of our tax laws. It made […]

Knoxville Tea Party

Michael Silence has a great round up of links related to the Knoxville Tea Party tomorrow at World’s Fair Park. Currently, this is a non-partisan movement, and I hope it stays that way. Of course there are literally dozens singles of people who actually support the current spending insanity that’s going on and will turn […]

Big Knoxville Overground Event Tonight!

KO is working on building a micro-enterprise development center at 35 Market Square and is hosting a social mixer there tonight (link to the flyer). From KnoxViews: Their proposal, modeled off of the top-ranked San Francisco Renaissance Center, entails using the space as a resource where startups in a variety of industries (specifically companies positioned […]


Why It Makes Political Sense to Vote For AIG Bonus Taxing

Last week, Zach Wamp met with us and emphasized the importance he placed on individual liberty, fiscal responsibility, and the Constitution. I’m happy to see that he, along with TN Representatives Jimmy Duncan and Marsha Blackburn, are co-sponsoring a bill to audit the Federal Reserve. However, it’s a little disappointing to see Wamp and Duncan […]

Local Dustup Over “Indoctrination”

This one was pretty amusing…a “she said, she said” over whether or not gun permit instructors are “indoctrinating” people who show up for their courses. This one comes complete with removed content and closed comments–fun for everybody. It seems to me it would be awfully tough to indoctrinate adults who have made a decision on […]


Zach Wamp Meets With East Tennessee Bloggers

Thanks to Ken’s efforts along with others at ConserVOLiance.com, a group of East Tennessee bloggers treated to a meeting with Tennessee Gubernatorial candidate Zach Wamp. To his credit, @zachwamp requested these meetups himself in a message to @bluecollarmuse on Twitter. I think this is important for two reasons. First of all, it says to me […]
