"In his report, Comptroller Justin P. Wilson said he "applaud[ed] NES officials for the corrective measures they have adopted in response to our finding.""

Could it possibly be the only reason he had any "findings" was because the city has a bunch of crooks on the NES Board?

What reliable department would spend millions without bids on anything? That, sure sounds like more crooks than honest employees.

The Mayor said he appointed the men on the NES Board. Shouldn't he also have the right to fire them as they should be for their theft?

More crooks in our local government who will get a pass. Including the mayor, as he said he appointed them. So he should be held responsible too.

And I really like the no reply libtard pact! But I thought liberals did not believe in Christmas? or Jesus? The whole coal in the stockings is funny. President Obama will tax your stocking if he finds coal in there!

Major audit for all of Metro. Start with the Mayor's office, on down. The money recouped & saved, would probably pay for the audit. Many have either passed on or been allowed to leave on their own (with BIG pensions), but IMO we need the crooks out of government.

Poor ole p3, I guess he calls that "trying".

As if there are no republican atheists! Someone doesn't get out much.

By: yogiman on 12/14/12 at 7:48

Can you tell any difference between the two parties now, B2? I can't, I see them different different in name only today.

By: bfra on 12/14/12 at 7:49

Be it republican or democrat, I'll bet these crooks they find, after every audit thus far, are in a pew at Church on Sunday morning. Got to keep the public image up! Screw the taxpayers all week, but keep the image up.

I heard through the grapevine that they also had perks such as tickets to the Rocketts, hotel stays at opryland plus more. I don't care if they are dems or republicans, they need to pay the money back for everything.

And the mayor needs to be held accountable. But he won't. He's a DEMO!

Latest on Obama. He throws his friends under buses! The Pakastani doctor who made Obama a hero (aka ZERO) was arrested for charges other than turning in bin lauden and is now being held in solitary confinement in pakistan and being tortured. Gee, it's too bad they didn't get barry to go with him.. AND so now the US gov-ment is not helping the doctor. The doctor who made barry a hero to his 47% or whatever his followers number.

Yep, USE 'EM AND TOSS 'EM. BARRY'S MOTTO! He is so pompas and phoney! I feel so sorry for that doctor's family.

By: bfra on 12/14/12 at 8:24

bud - If some how Obama could & did send someone in there to help, you would run your foul mouth about that too. So go admire some Muslim man's legs again!

By: Captain Nemo on 12/14/12 at 8:30

This is a good idea. I hope there are more in store for all departments, both City and State.

By: budlight on 12/14/12 at 8:31

You are a ditz, bfra. You don't know squat about squat. You just run your mouth to listen to yo-sef! Why don't you go lurk in the mall like you always do looking for thrills.

You cry that others have a foul mouth yet yours is filthy. Get a life twit head! And don't address me anymore. You are a nut cake.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/14/12 at 8:33

That is true bfra. p3 is the mini troll. I see it's tiny feet scurrying across the floor.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/14/12 at 8:35

Here we go so early in the morning with a new budlight rumor.

By: bfra on 12/14/12 at 8:35

bud you are a hypocrite! All you yammer about is what you did at the mall's. So that must be your hangout. Who's the nut case?

By: Captain Nemo on 12/14/12 at 8:36

Oh sure bud, you are the expert on squatting.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/14/12 at 8:38

No wonder Hickory Hollow is a ghost town. It is haunted by bud. LOL

By: budlight on 12/14/12 at 8:39

bfra, crawl back into your cave. If I was at the mall, you must have been there also or else how would you know. And your hangout is probably an unspeakable place. Now shut up. You are boring and antagonistic. You are not welcome to respond to my posts. You are not worthy. You are a nitwit. And you define the word hypocrite by your mere existence! Who's the nut case? You's the nut case? So I'm told by those close to me.

Or else, why would you even be posting to me. So ignore my posts and I'll ignore yours. BUT you have no self control, so you won't do that, now will ya?

By: bfra on 12/14/12 at 8:39

Nemo - Squatting comes with living under a bridge! LOL

By: Captain Nemo on 12/14/12 at 8:45

The ones that are close to bud or cockroaches and mice droppings.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/14/12 at 8:47

bud if you post, then expect to have an reply. If you don't like any response, I suggest that you do not post.

By: bfra on 12/14/12 at 8:59

bud, bud, bud, tries to be a wit, but is only a twit! Tries to be funny but can't & detest anyone bringing up her trumped up tales.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/14/12 at 9:21

That makes her a twital tell maker.

By: bfra on 12/14/12 at 9:23

Nemo - LOL

By: bfra on 12/14/12 at 9:38

Over the loud speaker "bud has now left the bridge" On the way to the mall to admire some muslim man's legs.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/14/12 at 9:42

After getting her morning spanking, the troll monkey crawls back under her bridge to make more phantom Tells from under the Bridge.

By: bfra on 12/14/12 at 9:44

No Nemo - She is squatting her way to the mall.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/14/12 at 9:44

Let’s get the time right about this. Bud goes to the mall first and then she crawls back to her bridge. LOL

By: bfra on 12/14/12 at 9:49

LOL Nemo! If ENN has seen all of the wild tales & accusations this one has put on this board, they would understand better.

By: Eye Nose & Now ... on 12/14/12 at 9:56

Sorry I mispel Mayor Dean nam e it is Karl not Carl but only mistake in post.

By: dargent7 on 12/14/12 at 12:58

Qu4estion of the Day: "Can you really tell any difference between the two parties now...?"
Yesterday, Susan Rice, a Rhodes Scholar and Oxford graduate, had to withdraw because of rabid morons in the Republican party...Boner, Graham, McConnell, McCain, Cantor, and that token woman from NH, Ayatol or something.
(what's with all the "C" men?) demanded she be removed .
"We can't trust her..."
So, now it's Kerry, who looks like he had plastic surgery from Hanibal Lechter.

By: dargent7 on 12/14/12 at 1:03

re: NES...I called them this past summer and asked if they had any "programs" for seniors, the UN-employed, vagrants, disabled, etc., and ALL THREE CALLs over 6 months said, "No, nothing..."
Well, on the 4th call, someone in billing said, "We don't, but Metro Action Committee" does..."
Turns out they give you $450. towards your electric bill...once a year.
Also $400. towards rent and two water bills.
Pass in on people, pay it forward, and stop this silly insulting bullshit calling people names.
You can meet a better class of people in the penitentary. Or Detroit.

TVA with their millions+ CEO, on down, seem to be a bunch of scam artist.

By: yogiman on 12/14/12 at 1:29

So you're admiring Obama's legs, eh, bfra? You do know he's a Muslim, don't you? I

f he isn't, why did he admit it by thanking John McCain for not mentioning his Muslim faith in their campaign in his interview with George Stephanopolis(?) in 2008?

By: yogiman on 12/14/12 at 1:51

Misspelling Karl Dean isn't your only mistake, Eye Nose & Now. Barry Soetoro doesn't "go by the Bible", he goes by his Book of Quran.

Have you ever heard of a Muslim reading the Bible? Didn't think so. Have you heard, or read of his acknowledging the Bible in the past four years? Didn't think so.

Have you seen him claps his hands over his crotch honoring HIS allegiance to our American flag? I have, more than once. Have you ever noticed him refusing to display a lapel pin honoring the American flag? I have; until he usurped the office.

By: yogiman on 12/14/12 at 1:54


The reason Rice quit was because so much was brought out on her on those men's murders. She knew too much and didn't "handle it" for those men.

By: strongone on 12/14/12 at 2:07

Too many people in Nashville don't speak up. That the council went along with Mayor Dean's request for a hike in property taxes to give him more money for buddies he's cut in on the covention center is beyond me.

This NES stuff, which the comptroller apparently thinks is worthy of applauding more than condemning, is absolutely criminal. You don't need a rocket scientist to tell you that accepting bribes from a corporation like Gaylord is against the rules. You just need some honest people familiar with the basic code of ethics.

Jenkins should be fired. Immediately.

One lump of coal for bfra! Tax bill on the way!

By: Captain Nemo on 12/15/12 at 9:37

p3 is a lump of coal. I hope bfra has a better Christmas.

By: bfra on 12/15/12 at 9:57

Nemo - Thanks & hope you also have a great Christmas. p3 is not even a blip on my commuter screen.

You questioned why Susan Rice was denied the Secretary of State position when, in fact, she was a Rhodes scholar and Oxford graduate.

In a public talk, former speaker Gingrich said their objections were based on one simple fact - she did not tell the truth about the terrorist attacks on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11 of this year. You might know she was our U.N. ambassador at that time.

I quote: "Ambassador Rice misled the entire country in public, and she couldn't withstand the scrutiny of having lied to the American people."

Gingrich said if Rice "has a grievance" with anybody over her clash with the Republicans on Benghazi, it should be with the president.

"The fact is... she was sent out by the president to say things that were false. She was used for five shows in one Sunday to tell the American people something that was not true," he said.

"And I think if she has a complaint with anybody, it ought to be with President Obama, who sent her out there, using her politically, even though she was the U.N. ambassador."

Two questions: Why did Obama send her out to make such comments... and why did she accept lying to the American people?

I just read a few old history lessons from an old friend and I was thinking of a few history lessons to you juveniles, but after your displays of absolute knowledge I imagine all of you already know them. Some are for those that aren't that intelligent.

Where did the remark "Piss Poor" come from? Interestingly, they used to use urine to tan animal skins so families used to all pee in a pot. Once it was full it was taken and sold to the tannery. If you had to do this to survive you were "Piss Poor".

But worse than that, the really poor folks who couldn't even afford to buy a pot, they didn't have a "pot to piss in" and they were the lowest of the low.

The next time you wash your hands and complain because the water temperature isn't just how you like it, think about how it used to be. Here are some facts about the 1500s.

Most people got married in June because they took their YEARLY baths in May and they still smelled pretty good in June. However, since they were starting to smell again, the brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide their body odor Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting married.

Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The 'man of the house' had the privilege of the nice clean water. Then all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the children and lastly, the babies. By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it. Hence the saying; "Don't throw the baby out with the water!"

I still remember much of that in the mid 19 hundreds.
