How many judicial appointees does it take to screw-up Georgia?

PV, Monday, November 13th, 2017

Rumors have it that one of the scumbags involved in the 2014 Pumpkin Gate saga is scheduled to appear this Wednesday in front of the Judicial Nominating Commission (“JNC”) to apply for a Superior Court Judge vacancy.

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 […]

The Purpose of The Georgia Republican Party

Bill Simon, Sunday, May 12th, 2013

Since there are a lot of people who are Republican-voters in this state who appear to have very different points of view about what the “Georgia Republican Party” should be about and what it should do for the Republican “cause” in Georgia, I think it is important for everyone, whether you are an old timer, […]

Myers-Briggs & Ron Paul Supporters

Bill Simon, Friday, April 13th, 2012

Prologue This particular issue of the Political Vine was inspired by one guy making, perhaps, the most astute observation that I’ve ever heard in consideration of trying to understand what happens to cause the melee of political personality clashes between “Ron Paul People” and “Every Other Republican.” Everyone in the GOP is aware of these […]
