Bill Simon, Thursday, March 26th, 2015

SB-94 (a/k/a “Imagine Democrats in Charge”) Yesterday (March 24) on the House Floor, in discussion of SB-94 between Rep. BJ Pak and Rep. Chuck Efstration, a series of Q&A occurred with Pak asking questions and Efstration responding.  You readers can verify what I am saying by going to the start of the conversation at Time-Mark […]

The Road to Hell (in Georgia) – Part 2

Bill Simon, Tuesday, March 24th, 2015

Some more issues with SB-94 1) The concept of obtaining a search warrant on the basis of ‘thinking a crime is about to be committed.’ Lines 179-187, Page 6 of SB-94: “(a) Any peace officer seeking a search warrant while engaged in the course of official duty shall submit a written request for such warrant…under oath […]

The Road to Hell (in Georgia) – Part 1

Bill Simon, Monday, March 23rd, 2015

SB-94 on The House Floor Today: More than meets the eye Today, SB-94 will be on the House Floor for a vote.  Under the Agenda, it is listed as concerning only “Criminal Procedure; require a procedure for enhancing witness identification accuracy.” However, that is not all this bill contains.  This bill has been modified in the […]

SB-94 & HB-430: Welcome To Georgia, the first Fascist State in America

Bill Simon, Thursday, March 19th, 2015

Last night’s “Legislative Boxers” had, at the end, a discussion on HB-430. Many people wrote me to tell me “That bill didn’t make it before Crossover, so it is dead.” NO, it is not dead. The House Press office responded to a question I had about their Daily Legislative Report issued last night, and this […]

Georgia Republicans: Expanding The State’s Power and Destroying People’s Rights

Bill Simon, Wednesday, March 18th, 2015

After winning reelection for Governor, Lt. Governor, state house seats and state senate seats last November, did the elected members of the Republican Party close their eyes and gleefully clap their hands and think to themselves “Oh-boy!..Oh-boy!..Oh-boy!…Oh-boy! NOW we can triple the size of Georgia government like I always wanted to do!!!”? Because THAT is […]

The Origination of SB 72 (aka “Police Dogs are Human Beings”)

Bill Simon, Monday, February 9th, 2015

Prelude Now, just, for a moment, picture the scenario we have in this state with regards to our public school education system: We still rank somewhere in the bottom 10-percentile (46th, 47th, 48th, 49th or 50th) where we have been for, likely, at least 50 years. Every budget year, we hear cries and lobbying for […]

The State Senate of Georgia: Overdosing on the Stupid Pills

Bill Simon, Friday, February 6th, 2015

Rumors have it that the Georgia State Senate is set to pass a bill that will turnover thousands of years of societal and legal precedent in this country (if not, perhaps, the entire world and/or universe) that will officially award “person” status to the species of animal known as the canine. State Senator Jeff Mullis […]

Who is Paying George Chidi to Hound Tom Owens?

Bill Simon, Sunday, October 19th, 2014

I think this is a valid question to ask. Because, according to DeKalb County Superior Court records, Mr. Chidi has had a FiFa Lien filed against his home as of August 1, 2014 for non-payment of what appears to be a Capital One Bank credit card balance outstanding of $5390.81. So, whether Mr. Chidi claims […]

Here is a snapshot of her front page with the NPPofGA logo near the bottom (http://www.politicalvine.com/dekalb/NJesterNPPGa.jpg) Those words at the top of the logo of the NPP endorsement […]

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, […]
