  • How kind of you Carl. I don't believe I threatened to slam you, just mentioned I had a comment for you. But since lazyrus was so proud of a post all about him, I didn't want to risk it being taken down. I truly appreciate the opportunity you are giving me. At this time and for the next several days I am preoccupied with a very important matter. Before I make my comments about you I want to have a little time to concentrate on how to say what I want to say since I'm pretty sure sometimes people misunderstand what I say and I would hate for you to. I promise to get back to you as soon as I can.

  • Sounds like someone is tongue tied or can't face being called out.I applaud you Carl for confronting them.It's time to run the cowards out.

  • Nice one beau. Sounds like you have the courage to put me in my place. I might care (at least a little) what you have to say if your guiding life principle was to stand and fight 'em even if they were 2 million instead of just 1 million. Although I am responsible for what I say, not for what you hear, in this day and age I think it is nice when some of us are willing to try to lessen the responsibility of the intellectually less fortunate. And knowing how great a wordsmith Carl is, I have chosen to put my full attention on this. Right now I can't do that because I have more pressing matters to attend to. Check back in a week---0900 (9AM local) on Friday 7/22. And beau, you should applaud Carl for confronting everyone, not just "them".

  • No different than the Democrats who make it a mission in life to bury their heads in the sand.Fair share,are you going to reveal yourself or just hide behind a keyboard? I have to admit you Crack me up and give me a good laugh as you are pretty boring.My quote of one million was from Gen Albert Sidney Johnston.He is reported to have said that in a war council.BTW why is going to take you a week to reply to Carl?

    -- Posted by beau maverick on Fri, Jul 15, 2016, at 11:27 PM
  • beau, who and when fair share replies is none of your **** business. If he has something important to attend to, that means, You, Carl and anyone else he deems as unimportant needs that answer. It's as simple as that, and it is pretty rude for you to ask.

    -- Posted by Evil Monkey on Fri, Jul 15, 2016, at 11:51 PM
  • Well evil monkey you don't have to curse but you are just another keyboard warrior.Maybe you and fair share are the one's who are unimportant.So go retreat to your safe spot.

    -- Posted by beau maverick on Sat, Jul 16, 2016, at 12:11 AM
  • Beau, I'm pretty sure I typed my first two posts slow enough for most people to keep up with. Would you do me the favor of going back and reading them s l o w l y? Thanks. And I'll do you the favor of meeting you on whatever street corner at whatever time (after 7/22). Just let me know.

    Grit, you are absolutely correct. It isn't any of beau's **** business. On the other hand he does seem a little sensitive to some words and I'm not sure he has found a safe space yet so I'm guessing that the politically correct thing to do is honor his sensitivities. And maybe offer some affirmations.

  • You and your fellow people male me laugh so hard it's not funny.BUT thank you for showing me how insignificant you people really are.

    -- Posted by beau maverick on Sat, Jul 16, 2016, at 7:46 AM
  • A side note if you don't want anything to be anybody's business then keep it off of social media.Just more proof that there are too many crybabys out there.

    -- Posted by beau maverick on Sun, Jul 17, 2016, at 3:37 PM
  • Sorry for the above error. I was responding to Evil Monkey, not Grit. See what happens when I can't focus on what I am doing?

  • You should change your name to master of excuses.You make me laugh.

    -- Posted by beau maverick on Mon, Jul 18, 2016, at 9:05 PM
  • Beau, since you seem to be so easy to entertain, I will go out on a limb here and guess you spend a lot of time entertaining yourself.

    -- Posted by fair share on Tue, Jul 19, 2016, at 12:45 PM
  • No,I just work with the public everyday and see several like you.My favorite incident is the gentleman I to throw out of the restaurant.I never laughed so hard at such a paranoid,delusional,threatening individual.I couldn't help but laugh at him,but no wannabe man threatens a female on my watch.So yes,I get plenty of entertainment but you nameless and cowardly individuals on here make me laugh the most.

    -- Posted by beau maverick on Tue, Jul 19, 2016, at 2:23 PM
  • You laugh at your own ignorance? This is not social media, This is a comment section of a blog. Retreat to my safe spot? What the hell does that mean? I will say it to your face.

    -- Posted by Evil Monkey on Thu, Jul 21, 2016, at 1:47 AM
  • Bring it on big man....Obviosly your feelings got hurt.You seem to have problems.with anyone who doesn't agree with you..

  • Thanks again, Carl. I really do appreciate this opportunity. Tho I do not feel "entitled" to this post. And this is not meant to slam you. I just want to offer you some of my observations. When I first started hanging out here, I really liked you. I still like you, but not as much lately. I really enjoy reading the way you put words together and take them apart. A true wordsmith. Very interesting when about real topics. Not so much when complaining about people, especially just because they don't use their real name or there happens to be conversation drift. I am surprised you didn't realize this would be the way when you trekked down to the T-G and signed up for this, all those years ago. There are a lot of people on here that are full of themselves (myself included) but I suspect none more so than you. But I do admire your way with words. Very cunning and sly. As a matter of fact, Carl, you are truly a cunning linguist. More than anyone else I know. And I know a few. Keep up the good work. And if possible, try to chill just a little.

  • beau,

    You are what you accuse others to be. My feelings? You seem to know so little of me. In my honest opinion, I would ask around.

    -- Posted by Evil Monkey on Fri, Jul 22, 2016, at 9:04 AM
  • Evil Monkey, you misunderstood me earlier. I don't deem anyone unimportant. Heck, even beau can be important as a source of laughter or an example of how not to be.

    -- Posted by fair share on Fri, Jul 22, 2016, at 9:06 AM
  • You guys do nothing but make me laugh.

    -- Posted by beau maverick on Fri, Jul 22, 2016, at 9:31 AM
  • Btw evil monkey, you have to access this blog via the Internet.A publicly used resource.Hence,a form of social media.You just revealed you can't say it to my face.Your just another keyboard warrior.

    -- Posted by beau maverick on Fri, Jul 22, 2016, at 9:34 AM
  • Fairshare it's 935 am and you haven't responded to Carl's original post.You'll probably blame me for keeping you distracted.

    -- Posted by beau maverick on Fri, Jul 22, 2016, at 9:36 AM
  • beau, you are correct. I did not respond at 0900 like I said. But if you will check a little above here, I responded at 0858. Sorry for the confusion. MAYBE I SHOULD HAVE SHOUTED IT FOR YOU! My bad.

    -- Posted by fair share on Fri, Jul 22, 2016, at 9:42 AM
  • It was disappointing,you made it sound like a huge deal and seemed rather mild.I expected a little more.

    -- Posted by beau maverick on Fri, Jul 22, 2016, at 1:43 PM
  • Sorry beau. I didn't mean to disappoint you. I never meant for it to be a huge deal. And I would agree with you that it seems rather mild. I think it says what I wanted to say without just giving lip service to it or sounding too bad.

    -- Posted by fair share on Fri, Jul 22, 2016, at 10:24 PM
  • No apologies needed.I have to say you probably had people checking on here everyday for your response.I read and respond to these blogs only to really get a idea of what's bugging everyone.It also let's me know which topics to avoid when out and about.It's better to have disagreements or fights on here than in person.If you really want to see some crazy remarks then check out The Tennessean Facebook page.

    -- Posted by beau maverick on Fri, Jul 22, 2016, at 10:54 PM
  • No doubt it is better to have fights on here than in person. Maybe even occasionally after going round and round someone might decide "if you can't lick 'em, join 'em" and go to the other side. It could happen.

    -- Posted by fair share on Sun, Jul 24, 2016, at 12:49 PM
  • Unfortunately I'm not one to change sides,maybe my opinion,but I do like hearing others thoughts and opinions.You get a broader view of the problem.

    Posted by beau maverick on Fri, Jul 22, 2016, at 10:54 PM

    Really???

    I gathered from some of your previous posts than you were a ...."meet um in person, bust their lip" macho man.

    Which are ya?

    -- Posted by Blessed Assurance on Mon, Jul 25, 2016, at 5:28 PM
  • Well for one none of you would meet in person.My references to fat lips and punch in face was from witnessing those actions. Remember, I lived overseas,east coast,west coast,north and south.Only in this area have I witnessed such foolish statements.Example which is my favorite one to hear,I'm going to stab you.What kind of person says that? The favorite quote of white trash,I'm going to sue you.People never think about consequences, just running their mouths.Btw,are you making a challenge? Or just strutting your feathers?

    -- Posted by beau maverick on Tue, Jul 26, 2016, at 9:24 AM
  • Actually...neither.

    -- Posted by Blessed Assurance on Tue, Jul 26, 2016, at 10:03 PM
  • That's what I thought.

    -- Posted by beau maverick on Wed, Jul 27, 2016, at 10:42 AM
  • Great thinking.

    -- Posted by Blessed Assurance on Wed, Jul 27, 2016, at 4:49 PM
  • My question to you. Are you a coward,white trash or a keyboard warrior?Or just another individual who opens there mouth at the wrong time?

    -- Posted by beau maverick on Wed, Jul 27, 2016, at 10:15 PM
  • Actually...neither.

    -- Posted by Blessed Assurance on Thu, Jul 28, 2016, at 7:34 AM
  • Looks like you are tongue tied. I expected a little more vocal response but I am not surprised. I can say one thing, anything I post on here,I would say to someone's face.

    -- Posted by beau maverick on Thu, Jul 28, 2016, at 11:08 AM
  • Nope.

    -- Posted by Blessed Assurance on Thu, Jul 28, 2016, at 9:44 PM
  • Do do you want me to say to you?

    -- Posted by beau maverick on Sat, Jul 30, 2016, at 11:48 PM
  • Actually.....nothing.

    But have at it as you please.

  • "You should change your name to master of excuses."

    Beau, since you have baited me, BA, and EM on this post alone, not to mention how many others overall, it is only logical for me to wonder if you are considering changing your name to Master Baiter? I'm sure there are others that are wondering. And you keep talking about everyone else being a keyboard warrior and not meeting you face-to-face but I haven't found where you set a meeting. Does 2 pm tomorrow on the north side of the square work for you? Please let me know. There may not be a million people there but there will be enough. At least one. Which will no doubt be more than enough. Then we can talk person to person in real time and if you are the reasonably intelligent person you seem to be, this can end up being a real edification experience, for you.

    -- Posted by fair share on Mon, Aug 1, 2016, at 1:14 PM
  • Fairshare,just saw your post,I've been tied up with work.How about Monday at the library?It's a reasonable place and full of books.Maybe we both can learn something.I'll also be renewing my tags tomorrow morning.So I'll be at the square in the morning.See you then.

    -- Posted by beau maverick on Thu, Aug 4, 2016, at 2:43 PM
  • Also I don't believe you can improve my intellect or morality.I am not a master baiter,just a person who sees thru the foolishness of people's opinions.Maybe if you had lived all over the country,overseas and deal with people from all over,you may have a different outlook on life.I do applaud your bravado and once again I'll be downtown for awhile tomorrow morning.We can do like the Brad Paisley song,where the offer is made to have a beer,conversate and clear the air.A beer summit.

    -- Posted by beau maverick on Thu, Aug 4, 2016, at 2:54 PM
  • Maybe we should have our beer first. Don't think the cops would appreciate us drinking on the Square. Then we can conversate.

    -- Posted by fair share on Thu, Aug 4, 2016, at 6:40 PM
  • Leos lounge serves beer and there beside the theater and Bocellis serves beer to..

  • "Maybe if you had lived all over the country,overseas and deal with people from all over,you may have a different outlook on life."

    Lucky for all us rubes to have your wisdom and experience to light the way.

    -- Posted by lazarus on Fri, Aug 5, 2016, at 8:19 AM
  • Lazarus,I do admit that you have intelligence which supercedes most of the locals.If only these people knew what others thought about them,maybe they would change their ways.We have quite a few names for them in the service industry.Especially in bars.Ever wonder why certain people always get bad service, orders wrong,lack of attention?It's because of them but they are to ignorant to see that.BTW Fairshare,I was on the square yesterday and didn't see you.Maybe you were trying to improve someones outlook on life which will keep you very busy in this county.

    -- Posted by beau maverick on Sat, Aug 6, 2016, at 10:35 AM
  • I didn't see you either beau. Maybe next time. In my opinion, people that care what others think about them are wasting time and energy. Much more important is what you think about yourself. Trying to improve someone's outlook on life is kinda like trying to get a drunk into AA---it only works when they really want it to. Which reminds me of a joke.

    How many psychologists does it take to change a light bulb?

    Only one, but the bulb really has to want to change.

    -- Posted by fair share on Sat, Aug 6, 2016, at 12:55 PM
  • You seemed to have thought alot of my comments to respond to them.However, it sometimes takes intervention or help to show someone the way.I could care less what anyone on here thinks as I can see the results by looking around the area.As far as being one baits people,it's just so easy with weak minded individuals.I do feel that we need to direct our attention towards the issues facing our county.
