When the Camel Club and the Town Officials cry that Joe and I are the most horrendous, abusive, idiotic people around, perhaps it is best explained simply that perhaps you all are more feely- touchy and overly sensitive. We’re called names virtually for being realistic. So the next time, perhaps, when we come up with an alternate idea, just perhaps you can determine that we are not trying to cut your ideas down but to build on them for a better Town.
I have decided to give you a hint why you are confused and it sometimes seems that Joe and I are one person. Per Meyers-Briggs there are 16 personality types. The INTJ like Joe is 2% of the population (Same as Vladimir Putin) whereas ENTJ’s like me are 3% of the population.
I N T J – Joe
“You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.”
A paradox to most observers, INTJs are able to live by glaring contradictions that nonetheless make perfect sense – at least from a purely rational perspective. For example, INTJs are simultaneously the most starry-eyed idealists and the bitterest of cynics, a seemingly impossible conflict. But this is because INTJ types tend to believe that with effort, intelligence and consideration, nothing is impossible, while at the same time they believe that people are too lazy, short-sighted or self-serving to actually achieve those fantastic results. Yet that cynical view of reality is unlikely to stop an interested INTJ from achieving a result they believe to be relevant.
NOTHING CAN STOP THE RIGHT ATTITUDE FROM ACHIEVING ITS GOAL
With a natural thirst for knowledge that shows itself early in life, INTJs are often given the title of “bookworm” as children. While this may be intended as an insult by their peers, they more than likely identify with it and are even proud of it, greatly enjoying their broad and deep body of knowledge. INTJs enjoy sharing what they know as well, confident in their mastery of their chosen subjects, but owing to their Intuitive (N) and Judging (J) traits, they prefer to design and execute a brilliant plan within their field rather than share opinions on “uninteresting” distractions like gossip.
IN MATTERS OF PRINCIPLE, STAND LIKE A ROCK
INTJs radiate self-confidence and an aura of mystery, and their insightful observations, original ideas and formidable logic enable them to push change through with sheer willpower and force of personality. At times it will seem that INTJs are bent on deconstructing and rebuilding every idea and system they come into contact with, employing a sense of perfectionism and even morality to this work. Anyone who doesn’t have the talent to keep up with INTJs’ processes, or worse yet, doesn’t see the point of them, is likely to immediately and permanently lose their respect.
The underlying thought running through the ENTJ mind might be something like “I don’t care if you call me an insensitive b*****d, as long as I remain an efficient b*****d”.
If there’s anyone ENTJs respect, it’s someone who is able to stand up to them intellectually, who is able to act with a precision and quality equal to their own. ENTJ personalities have a particular skill in recognizing the talents of others, and this helps in both their team-building efforts (since no one, no matter how brilliant, can do everything alone), and to keep ENTJs from displaying too much arrogance and condescension. However, they also have a particular skill in calling out others’ failures with a chilling degree of insensitivity
HAPPINESS LIES IN THE JOY OF ACHIEVEMENT
If there’s anything ENTJs love, it’s a good challenge, big or small, and they firmly believe that given enough time and resources, they can achieve any goal. This quality makes people with the ENTJ personality type brilliant entrepreneurs, and their ability to think strategically and hold a long-term focus while executing each step of their plans with determination and precision makes them powerful business leaders. This determination is often a self-fulfilling prophecy, as ENTJs push their goals through with sheer willpower where others might give up and move on, and their Extroverted (E) nature means they are likely to push everyone else right along with them, achieving spectacular results in the process.
At the negotiating table, be it in a corporate environment or buying a car, ENTJs are dominant, relentless, and unforgiving. This isn’t because they are coldhearted or vicious per se – it’s more that ENTJ personalities genuinely enjoy the challenge, the battle of wits, the repartee that comes from this environment, and if the other side can’t keep up, that’s no reason for ENTJs to fold on their own core tenet of ultimate victory.
There are those people, who because they are fearful of making an error in judgment or kind, elect to be silent so that they may look perfect to the world at large. These types of people go with the Status quo and will never know what it is like to have an entrepreneurial spirit whereby decisions are made wrong or right in order to achieve a better life for themselves and others.
Rhett appears to be such a person who has gone with the status quo, possibly because he is fearful that his law practice would not go well in the event he should take a stand against the mayor, against Walter, against the lack of transparency in government and to end the corruption. I doubt if he will ever fight the status quo and do greatness for White Springs. But when I have been told that Rhett has stuck up for Joe and I at meetings, I certainly have not seen the results. Like many before you Rhett, I believe you just cannot understand why others will not agree with you or the Corrupt Town which favors some and causes harm to others.
First let’s go back to 2013, when Rhett and Joe were both running for Council. Joe provided a platform of what he wished to do and Rhett provided a letter stating how honest and fair he would be to the people. Yet, even on legal issues, I have seen where you look to Koberlein to give answers at meetings.
Rhett, you have voted consistently with the Mayor and Walter McKenzie for the last two years and of course Tanya Brown does the same….never seeing one bit of change but allowing shortages in the coffers through a not so weak Mayor. Yet in 2013, you probably assisted the Mayor by passing out something written in a law case ten years prior where Joe was upset with two people specifically. You jumped at the chance to complain that Joe was buying votes because he said he would be campaigning at the food bank which was held on our premises. What followed was a complaint to the State Election’s board against Joe causing dishonor, questions and an inability to campaign. I know it was Rhett who complained, because when I conversed with Shirley, she inadvertently stated that Rhett had complained to her and then changed her story to Joe. Many of the poor in our town are not registered voters and this was not the first time Joe and I gave money or assisted with the food bank.
The Election board compared such actions to campaigning at a church and the charges were dropped. Rhett, the point, however, is that you allegedly allowed Shirley to take the blame for the complaint citing election fraud against Joe. Subsequently, it appears that Rhett allowed someone to do his dirty work and he came out smelling clean with that little boy charm. FYI, we still voted for you, hoping you would be honest and forthright.
Then there was the 2014 election and Rhett was on the council. He had to have known what the Mayor and Walter McKenzie using the Town Manager were plotting against Joe. Rhett, you are supposed to be an attorney and some of the things you missed are in Law 101…such as the charges did not meet all the five elements of fraud; plus no one else has ever been arrested for falsifying an application such as Townsend, Rivers and others.
Applications are and were not considered by the legislature to be instruments of fraud because an employer or School Board can determine to hire, fire, or throw away the application. It isn’t like stealing money or to steal a title or property. An attorney should be aware of that (especially with the Town’s past history of allowing fraudulent applications) but I guess the Town was very anxious to silence not only Joe but me.
The score sheets alone for the Town Manager position did not include any points for being in the military…and I assume for the second year in a row, Rhett could not have someone on the council who actually would fight for the citizens and for government transparency. Instead he went along with the status quo and even his cousin Johnny Bullard came up to Joe at the Hucklebuck and said “That is your bailiwick” and spent his entire time with the Mayor and her husband. Apparently that must be the Bullard Way.
Not only that but when Joe took PTI to protect me, knowing since his military record had been expunged, he would have to search back to when he was augmented into the U.S. Navy and prior to being a public affairs officer. Further he was prohibited per the agreement to seek such information to protect himself.
Surely, Rhett, through Tracy and the Milers, you should have realized that the Valor Act in itself has problems because of “Free Speech”. However, the Town wished to put Joe away, in prison, for a maximum 25 years, (to a man the Town was the proximate cause of his disability). And from what I have seen in an e-mail, you decided to assist the Town in taking away Joe’s PTI so that we would have to pay thousands in court costs.
You complained to Tracy that Joe was contacting candidates and you blamed Joe for his blog. And by the Way, Mr. Attorney, What law did Joe break? What Law did I break? A prudent person would understand that should they read the blog they would be able to question their prospective employer as to the truth, before taking on the Job. I read comments about employers before deciding on employment with them. The Town was not even cordial to one candidate who contacted Joe to tell him that no one showed him the town or the sewer and water facilities. He then felt that he was not wanted here nor would he wish to work for a Town such as ours.
We know there were phone calls to the Assistant State’s attorney fabricating harassment of both Joe and I, wishing to close down our blog, and stop Joe from seeking information by 119 requests and citizen’s complaints. Again Mr. Attorney, have you read the law on cyberstalking harassment? If you did, how did Joe or I break the law? The elements are listed in the law.
In my opinion, you instead were Attorney Goody Two-shoes who never gets his hands dirty by allowing others to do his dirty work. It is because of this, Rhett, that we sought relief through a Federal Civil Rights Suit. So you can thank yourself in part, for causing the revocation which subsequently led to a suit against the Town.
You and the Town ridiculed Joe about his bachelor’s degree with FTU, saying his statement was a fraud, when he also has not only that degree but three masters degrees.
And even with Joe’s education, I have never seen him put down or ridicule someone other than those who ridicule him. Joe will not step down from a fight and many people were lucky in Southeast Asia as a result
Yes, Rhett, perhaps we are harsh, but you obviously dinged Joe for two election years in a row because you obviously could never have an honest man who believed the officials need to serve their citizens and allow their citizens the right to Redress their Grievances. You and the officials allowed the Camel Club and their subsequent new anonymous names to bash us continually. And, You will remain perfect in not taking a stand.
I, personally, would rather stand by my decisions, even though I may make a mistake. I would never have excelled in my profession or had the opportunities which were available to me if I had stuck my head in the sand. I have also worked with attorneys in NV and in MN and never, never, have I seen such defamation against two people (Joe and I) by the press and by the Town Council without even understanding the consequences.
You should be proud because even though you elected to not have the Mayor send her letter to the ASA, I believe that had I not been also listed as to go to prison, you probably would have not voted against it. What you do to Joe you do to me and then the Town used the press and other complaints against me.
From my perspective, you have not wished Joe anywhere near the council and for that you have done an exemplary job. But then don’t have Willy tell me to “Stiffle” because it has gone out of hand.
At some point, one has to fight for one’s rights because no one else will and especially when we know we have done nothing wrong in the eyes of the law. What you do to Joe you do to me. Yet, we do not see change by those who currently are in power.
I believe in Nikki Williams and I know she will have a voice for the citizens of White Springs and perhaps someone, someday will take her lead.
Several people today have told me that I was a little TOO HARSH on Rhett Bullard. Maybe so. But has he treated me with respect? Has he come by my house and asked what he could do to make things better? Has he quit voting with the Mayor on ALL votes taken? None of these are true in the time he has been on the council. We need a proactive town council and members and Rhett has done nothing except vote with Helen on everything.
Has he sought to find a solution to the Federal Civil Rights suit? No he has not. My concerns should be the Council’s concerns but Rhett has done NOTHING that I can see to voice those concerns. 119 Requests are still going unanswered. Koberlein is still milking the town for all of the money he can get and the Town is still operating in the darkness of too many issues, including the Federal Civil Rights suit.
As an attorney Rhett should be making sure we do the MAXIMUM for COMPLIANCE with the Sunshine and Ethics Laws. Instead he and his cohorts are doing nothing, or the bare minimum, to Open Up the government of White Springs to the people.
TOO HARD ON RHETT??? WHAT HAS HE DONE FOR THE CITIZENS? EVEN HIS FLYER SAID NOT MUCH. I DON’T THINK I’VE BEEN TO HARD ON HIM, TANJA OR WILLY. YOU EXPECT WALLY AND HELEN TO BE CORRUPT, THAT IS ALL THEY KNOW HOW TO DO. BUT RHETT AND TANJA AND “STIFLE IT” WILLY SHOULD DO BETTER.
Cast ONE VOTE I say for Nikki. Use your second vote as a protest against the corruption (special strokes for special folks) that is White Springs government.
A Vote for Rhett, means
continued Regret -
- No substance, just a lot of “Rhett-oric”,
and loads of “Bull-Lard”
TANJA BROWN. Who is she and what has she done except draw a paycheck? Not much except to VOTE FOR the increase in Sewer and Water Rates upward to 250% of what they should be. I can’t think of a single time when she voted something other than the Mayor voted on any issue. I beg you, supporters of Tanja Brown for Council to tell me one time she didn’t rubber stamp the Mayor’s wishes.
What has she done for the citizens of White Springs? NOTHING I would contend. I invite you to prove me wrong…..
Rhett Flyer – CLICK ON LINK TO SEE FLYER.
I COULDN’T PASS UP THIS OPPORTUNITY TO DEBUNK THE FLYER.
Rhett says that when we elected him as a town council member in 2013 that he would always put the citizens first and that he would continue to do so if re-elected. I say that is pure unadulterated hooey.
The “DECISIONS” he makes for the town are the Mayor’s decisions in that he votes her way in excess of 99% of the time. He is hardly an independent voice for the people but instead is a lap dog for Helen and her corruption.
He cites three proof sources for his “putting the people first”. They are :
Opposed drastic water and sewer increase in 2013. Yet when the Mayor needed his vote to approve the increase he approved the budget without a whimper. Hardly a voice for the people.. His proof source for this statement is apparently contained in all of the minutes of 2013 since he fails to cite a month when this attack of humility struck him.
Reduced your water and sewer bill $5.00 whole dollars a month. This for Rhett is what your vote is worth, $5.00 per month. I say your vote, when HE RAISED the sewer bills 250%, is worth more than $5.00 per month. Again his proof source are the council minutes for the year 2014. No month was given to check out his statement.
Opposed the effort to close SHE. So what, everyone did. But none, other than Rhett, were in the unique position of Attorney for the Mayor’s Charter School project. He BLEW that assignment in spades. He could have assured that we got the Charter school instead of blowing smoke up the Mayor’s rear end. If he had been paid, he could have been brought up on charges of unethical behavior. Again his proof source is lacking a date. He is afraid to have you check into his record.
AND SPEAKING OF RECORDS…. WHERE IS HIS PLATFORM? What will he do, what can we the citizens count on him to do, if we re-elect him? We just don’t know. All of the fancy phone calls and mailings fail to mention anything about his wants and desires for White Springs citizens. What can we count on him to do? Apparently nothing of significance.
NOW HERE ARE SOME OF THE THINGS HE DID DO !!!
HE IGNORED OVER 40 CITIZEN COMPLAINTS OVER HIS TWO YEARS ON THE COUNCIL. What that means is that Rhett doesn’t believe in a citizens right to redress his government for grievances. HE DOESN’T BELIEVE IN THE FIRST AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES. Freedom of speech, freedom of the press, the right to assemble, Freedom of Religion and the right to redress the government mean NOTHING to Rhett.
He allowed the town to violate Citizen’s Civil Rights then keeps the fact from the citizens. The openness of the legal process means nothing to this haphazard servant of the people. Why can’t the citizens know what the Mayor and the Chief of Police did to violate a citizen’s civil rights. But Rhett would rather keep that information in the darkness so that he doesn’t have to be responsible.
He approved two budgets that allow the town to be in utter financial distress. BUT most important is that he allows the town to STEAL sewer and water money to pay for general services. The Florida Public Service Commission doesn’t allow such foolishness for its big utilities like Florida Power and Light, yet Rhett does allow it in White Springs. Just so we are clear, here at the rates charged by surrounding towns for sewer and water.
Jennings …….. $28.47
White Springs $78.65
4000 GALLONS PER MONTH
And it is all Rhett’s fault.
He doesn’t believe in the Florida Sunshine Law, the Florida Public Records Law or the right of citizens to be able to understand the thinking of its public officials on matters of public concern. You can’t get information out of the town or any Council Person because Rhett says so.
But what’s worse and I mentioned it earlier is that in more than 99% of the Council votes he voted exactly like the Mayor. He’d follow her into the “Gates of Hell” if she lead him there.
I say Dump the Dude. He has taken his outstanding education and done nothing with it for the citizen’s of White Springs.
I say vote once for Nikki Williams. Let your other vote be an unused vote to end corruption.
