I am starting a new series called Pulse on Georgia where I will choose comments from News articles, tweets, Facebook, Instagram, and anything else I can find of interest on the top news stories to take a pulse of what the people in Georgia are saying. Not the news media but actual people and the candidates without the noise. Feel free to share your own in comments below the article. I will try and choose the top rated comments, the ones that have the most likes or up votes or retweets. I often find some the comments on articles don’t hold back any punches and I enjoy that raw passion on issues.
I have started a new hash tag on twitter #PulseOnGeorgia where you can submit your own suggestions or links you feel would be a good fit for this series. I will try and update this weekly. You can also follow us on Twitter or Facebook and submit your suggestions directly.
During a July 2005 deposition, a transcript of which was provided to POLITICO, Perdue spoke at length about his role in Pillowtex’s collapse, which led to the loss of more than 7,600 jobs. Perdue was asked about his “experience with outsourcing,” and his response was blunt.
“Yeah, I spent most of my career doing that,” Perdue said, according to the 186-page transcript of his sworn testimony.
A Georgia man was awoken Wednesday morning to find a police helicopter hovering overhead and sheriff’s deputies at the door to search his property for drugs.
“They were strapped to the gills,” said Dwayne Perry, describing the heavily armed officers.
Agents from the Governor’s Task Force for drug suppression flying overhead spotted what they believed to be marijuana growing in the yard of Perry’s home in Cartersville, reported WSB-TV.
But the plants were, in fact, okra.
I don’t know whether or not this state’s Republicans are too blind, too dumb or too much of both to see what a breathtakingly dishonest, loathsome and corrupt man they are supporting.
