I am beginning to believe that somebody, someplace, needs to do a well-check on Nicole.
First, nobody was “hitting [Nicole’s] van.” They had an accident, and a very minor one with no damage to either vehicle. As usual, she makes this into something it wasn’t.
Second, I absolutely do not believe any five-year-old’s story like this regardless of whose five-year-old it is. I call bullshit. The neighbor is simply not the sort of person to say anything like that to a child.
Third, there were no “drunk drivers.” I’m not sure how often I have to say this, but nobody was drunk that night. Joe was drinking a beer with both Kyle and Mark. I was there. Nicole was not there. If Joe tells a different tale, and I bet he does, he is lying.
The police did not come because there was no reason for them to come. It was ridiculous.
Fourth, bullshit on the “documented threats of violence.” Nobody has threatened Nicole with anything.
And then she goes on with the six-degrees-of-separation shit.
The first time she ever made this claim, that I am “friends” with Sheriff Pate’s mother-in-law, I had absolutely no idea what she was talking about. She is talking about Joyce Webster.
Yes, Joyce Webster is a friend of mine on Facebook.
I have a lot of Facebook friends. I don’t know most of them. I have almost never made a friend request on Facebook, less than five, I bet.
I am a blogger, with two very active blogs. Do you know how many friend requests I get per week? A whole bunch. And I am not really picky about who I accept. My Facebook page is almost entirely open and public, so I really don’t care. You don’t even have to send me a request. You can comment on my FB page even if you aren’t my friend.
For another thing, I knew nobody involved in the Naugler situation until Joe Naugler came over to my Facebook page and began threatening me. I knew not one person in Breckinridge County. I didn’t even know where Breck County was. I have several friends there now, and several more in the surrounding area. Some of them are Facebook friends who I have never met in real life. Some are real, flesh-and-blood friends, and I am very glad that I got to know them. But I knew none of them until Joe Naugler poked me with a stick and sparked my interest in the story.
I had no idea what Sheriff Pate’s mother-in-law’s name was until Nicole told me.
I have never had a conversation with Joyce Webster about her son-in-law or even about the fact that he is her son-in-law. I have no idea how she feels about his arrest. I do know that the legal system did their thing. Nicole ought to pay some attention. As far as I can tell, Sheriff Pate owned his mistake right from the start, went straight to rehab and totally cooperated with law enforcement.
This is very different from what Joe and Nicole have done. They have systematically tried to antagonize every governmental agency they possibly can as often as possible. When you are in the middle of a court case involving the environmental director of the local health department, it really isn’t bright to to go on your public blog and call him an idiot.
Or to go on social media and talk about the judge as though he’s in collusion with people.
As you can see, this “it’s all a conspiracy” shit has been going on for a long time. It’s not the Naugler’s fault. It’s this very small group of people who hate them and want to steal their property from them (because it’s just so valuable, covered with shit like it is) and drive them out of the county.
Actually, almost everyone in the whole world loves them. Everyone who ever meets their children knows that those kids are perfect, well-behaved, clean, and above all, brilliant and highly educated. And Joe says that everyone who meets him loves him.
Except for one problem.
It’s not true.
His neighbors absolutely despise him. He and Nicole are not “highly thought of” in the county, especially not in the various governmental offices. And it’s not because they are “voluntaryists” who are standing up for their “rights” against a “corrupt local government.”
It’s because they are assholes.
Listen to Joe’s (highly edited, or truncated) recording of the encounter on the road.
Put that with every single other recording you’ve ever heard that Nicole has touted on YouTube. Not the pretty, staged ones with the children. No, listen to the ones she records of law enforcement, of their encounters with officials of any sort, including an innocent clerk at the health department.
They are assholes.
Nobody who meets them in those circumstances can stand them because they are assholes. They behave like petulant children.
Hell, they couldn’t even get along with other people in church, of all places. Not just one church. Multiple churches. Nobody could stand them. They were quite literally forced out of every church they attended. When you take charity from a church and then trash the church on social media, you’re an asshole.
Nicole did a blog posting the other day about her salon. It’s a long screed that pretty much trashes every single employer she has ever had. All them were either drug addicts (and I’m quite sure that “drug addict” coming from Nicole is just about as accurate as “drunken driving”) or they were dishonest or scheming to rob her or something. Every single one. When you cannot get along with anyone you’ve ever worked with in your whole life, you’re an asshole.
Joe can’t work because he is unemployable. He’s unemployable because he cannot get along at any job he’s ever had. He’s an asshole.
It’s very simple.
The Naugler “family” is in no danger from anyone, although I would suggest that chasing people who are riding down public roads and screaming threats at them might not be the best strategy if you don’t want to fight. It’s a strategy that also goes a long way to increase the numbers of that “small group of locals” who don’t like you.
Joe and Nicole Naugler are assholes.
