Bill Simon, Wednesday, December 6th, 2017

Sandy Springs: The Barbarians Inside The Gate-Part 1

Bill Simon, Tuesday, July 5th, 2016

Prelude If you are a fan of Chinese food, you might be familiar with the little table game played upon reading the fortune contained in a fortune cookie. The ‘game’ is that whatever the fortune says, you add a statement at the end of it that says either “…in your own mind.” or “…in bed.” […]

Sandy Springs: The Barbarians Inside The Gate-Part 2

Bill Simon, Tuesday, July 5th, 2016

Rusty Paul – Barbarian Numero Uno As I now have to frequent Sandy Springs way more often than usual, I find myself having to be detoured all around the $220+ million money pit that is to become City Center. At the center of this pit is erected a crane. At one time, at the top […]

Georgia GOP: Half-Assed Leadership Leads to Complete Crap

Bill Simon, Thursday, December 10th, 2015

Have you SEEN the email today from Ga GOP Foundation Chair Jack Kingston? Here is a copy. Note that Jack lists as his first bulleted accomplishment that “We’ve grown from 8 members to 78 members [emphasis added], which includes more than 30 who have given far more than the requested amount.” Kudos to Jack Kingston […]

SB-127 (aka, “Georgia Republican Politicians Are At it Again”)

Bill Simon, Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

SB 127 (aka “Incumbent Protection Act” AND “Our Attempt to Destroy PV’s Right To Free Speech”) I have to say, you folks in the State Legislature are a trip.  Really.  While there are other organizations and people ‘communicating’ (can’t say “lobbying” can we?) with some of you right now on SB-127 to implore you to […]

Are you Rose Wing? If you live in Cobb County…if you are a Republican…and if you are a delegate headed to the Cobb County Republican Convention this Saturday, you will be one of only two types of people: Either you are a person who thinks everything that I will present below regarding Rose Wing, candidate […]

PumpkinGate: The Cover-ups – Part 2

Cover-up By Dawson County Sheriff’s Office (“DCSO”) Personnel For nearly the past two months since August 23rd, I have been engaged in filing different Open Records Requests (“ORR”) with the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office. To those people who are not part of the Georgia GOP Republican establishment (who are, for the most part, good little […]

PumpkinGate: The Cover-ups

Bill Simon, Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Prelude There are people involved in the Georgia Republican Party in this state who think that Nydia Tisdale (her first name rhymes with “Lydia”, but begins with the letter “N”) “deserved” the treatment she got on August 23rd, based on the story that is easiest to believe as told by some “witnesses” of the events […]

Stalking Statute vs. First Amendment: Which should win?

Bill Simon, Thursday, October 9th, 2014

I am fascinated with the degree of ignorance exhibited by so-called “professional reporters” at media outlets like the AJC. I actually thought Jim Galloway, Dan Malloy, and Greg Bluestein were smart(er) than most of the rest…at least smarter than the Huffington-Post. I’m never making that presumption again. I have to give credit to a true, […]
