    What happens when the Good Old Boys turn a blind eye to constant violations of county and state building codes by their friends and campaign contributors? Find out tonight why Paulding County is all in a tizzy over the latest kerfuffle created by a Facebook posting. We'll give you the ins and outs of what is really happening and who you should truly be upset with. The Georgia General Assembly kicked off the 2015 legislative session today and Governor Deal was officially sworn in for a second term. There are a lot of hot button issues and I'm wondering what Libertarians think of some of them. And what exactly is Spartacus Legal? Find out tonight who started the Spartacus Legal Foundation and why. Also, we'll talk about my humorous adventures over the weekend that kept me from attending the Wild Hog Supper on Sunday. Join us for all of this and much more tonight at 8 p.m.ET. As usual, we'll have plenty of great music by Liberty minded artists to keep us upbeat and motivated.

    The Georgia General Assembly (GGA) has ended for 2015 and thank goodness for it. We'll be having our own GGA legislative wrap up and discussing what we will expect from state lawmakers over the next 8 months and in 2016. We'll also be discussing a few national issues such as the national RFRA debate and the 2016 Presidential election cycle. And then, of course, we'll also be discussing local issues such as the ridiculous email one resident got in response to an open records request they submitted to the City of Dallas. $80 an hour because they don't have a "dedicated open records request officer"...really? My aggravation with National, State and Local politicians and their flunkies is reaching a crisis point and I think I'm about to erupt. As usual, we'll have plenty of music by liberty minded artists to keep us upbeat and motivated. You won't want to miss a minute of tonight's show.

    After a brief hiatus due to family issues, we are back! There is plenty to discuss including SB85, the GA Senate Bill that would expand definitions pertaining to Development Authorities, SB130 that would ban smoking in vehicles IF there is a minor under 15 years of age in the car, and HB170 - the transportation bill. We'll also be discussing the GOP county conventions held this past Saturday and of course, I'll be giving the latest update on the Me & Mr. Jones saga. And what is up with the Paulding Board of Education on Twitter? Is it really ok for the person responsible for social media to get rude when asked questions about whether or not schools will be open, as well as other issues? As usual, we'll have plenty of great music by Liberty minded artists during the breaks to keep us upbeat and motivated. You do not want to miss a single moment of what is sure to be a show full of controversy. See you there!

    Did the Georgia General Assembly lose their collective minds this year? If you're following HB 170, the Transportation Bill, you probably think they have. Having studied the original bill and now the "Senate Substitute", I am absolutely convinced their is something in the water under the Gold Dome, OR someone needs to open the windows to clear out all the carbon monoxide in the chamber, legislative offices, and committee rooms! HB 1, the Medical Cannabis bill, cleared another hurdle in the Senate on Thursday, now it goes to the full Senate for a vote. Some changes were made to the bill and we'll discuss that. And how can an elected official (or government employee) resign from office under questionable circumstances only to be awarded a "consulting contract" or be hired in another part of the state? What was Griffin Judicial Circuit District Attorney Scott Ballard thinking when he hired former Douglas County DA, David McDade for the Fayette County office? We'll also be giving the latest updates and possible movement regarding any investigations into the background checks conducted by former Paulding County Administrator, Mike Jones. Make sure to tune in as we discuss all of this a more. As usual, we'll have some awesome music by Liberty Minded artists to keep us upbeat and motivated. You won't want to miss a minute.

    We are down to just three legislative days in the Georgia General Assembly. Medical Marijuana has passed both chambers and is on its way to the Governor's desk to be signed into law. Criminal Justice Reform also has cleared both chambers. But HB 310 and SB 94 are bad for Liberty and create another level of bureaucracy in the criminal justice system. Meanwhile, RFRA is still being debated in committee and Governor Deal is threatening a "special session" if the Senate and House don't come to an agreement that the Governor can live with regarding the transportation bill. Of course, through all of that, there is still plenty of shenanigans to be found in Douglas County regarding Foxhall and in Paulding County regarding the background checks kerfuffle. Join us as we discuss all of this and more. As usual, we'll have music by Liberty minded artists to keep us upbeat and motivated. See y'all there

    So, I have come back from vacation to quite a bit going on. The Douglas County Development Authority went ahead with their "hard sell" of the Foxhall project and the debate continues with that. Paulding County has decided to "roll back" the millage rate on property taxes but the Fire and BOE millage rates will remain the same. And the Libertarian candidates for Senate and Governor seem to be getting very busy with their campaigning. Join us for all of this and more. As usual, we'll have plenty of awesome music by Liberty minded artists to keep us upbeat and motivated. See you there!

    The Paulding County Chamber of Commerce is once again proving that they care little about "quality of life" in our community. A simple email request was answered with rudeness. Find out what the request was, from whom and who was rude. Douglasville Mayor Harvey Persons took time this week to go testify in front of State Senator Donzella James' study committee on "mold and mildew remediation contractors". Does he think his constituents can't handle their own issues either? And what is going on with the Jeff Amason "notary" kerfuffle. I attended a meeting last night that enlightened me on the "conflicting notary laws". Please join me for all of this and more.
