When You’re Holding a Hammer July 19, 2011

Posted by Retired Geezer in Crime, Law, Politics.

A Tea Party Republican, football coach in Tennessee was fired for writing a Conservative song.

Twenty-six-year-old Bryan Glover is a Christian who co-wrote a song called “When You’re Holding a Hammer, Everything Looks Like a Nail,” which takes a dig at the current administration and what he believes to be the wrong moves for the U.S.

He sent a link to his song to everyone in his personal e-mail inbox, which included parents from Grassland Middle School, where he coached football.

Here’s his website: http://holdingahammer.com/

Go buy a T-Shirt

You can go to his site and download the song for free. You could even buy something to help him.

I don’t have a problem with him being fired. He used a list of email addresses that he obtained from his employer to send personal, political emails. That would be no different than a cop or a paramedic using phone numbers from official reports to call women and ask for dates.

Would you want your child’s teacher sending you pro-Obama literature because he got your email address from the school?

He used a list of email addresses that he obtained from his employer

Well, in the interview, he said that he used email addresses from people who sent him email.
Does that negate the premise?

Yeah, sounded to me like he just included parents with whom he had some personal relationship because he was a coach. He didn’t use a school list. We all know how our Contacts folder gets swollen because if you reply to anybody, Yahoo asks you if you want to add the address.

Still, if you have a job, you need to be real prudent about how you voice political opinions online.

I’m unemployed now, so this is not an issue for me, but it used to be a significant concern of mine.

Unemployed? I figured you were just “holding out for something better”.

Michael, does the english language not have two different words for unemployed and retired?

A friend sent me this random thought:

The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

If only there was a French word for entreprenuer.

If only.

Bet we’ll never know the details of this one. Sad situation, but I’ll bet this young man will come out of it just fine.

12. Michael - July 20, 2011

Heck, Dave, the French will just borrow that word from us and pretend its not English. They do it all the time. Snooty bastards.

It’s a catchy little tune.
