    God Help America

    I am in the woods. The air is fresh and earthy, but this does not lessen the stench of debauchery that comes from bad weather and a full bar. These are the type of people who swim naked in the lake because they don’t want to get their bathing suit wet. My kind of people? […]

    In a rush to crap on the rising star Our Revolution, Politico put out a lame hit piece.

    Editor’s Note: This article is a preview of an article published on The Peach Perspective. Self-appointed Georgia Ethics WatchDog, William Perry penned a post of 10 alleged ethical issues that should prevent Abrams from becoming Governor.
