If I had the bugle “charge” call, I’d play it right now since it seems like we’re charging to the finish line of the US Senate race in 2014.


There will be an “informal candidate forum” on Saturday, June 29th  on Lake Burton (well, the Pavilion at the LaPrades Marina on Lake Burton) hosted by the Citizens Helping America Restore Government Ethics (C.H.A.R.G.E.).  The group is touting this as the “first chance to meet the announced candidates, as well as, one potential candidate still consider a run” for the soon to be open US Senate seat in Georgia:

U.S Congressmen Paul Broun, Phil Gingrey, Jack Kingston, and former Secretary of State Karen Handel as well Georgia Businessman David Perdue have agreed to participate in the first public forum of the 2014 Senate Race. The Forum is hosted by citizen watchdog group C.H.A.R.G.E. and will be held on Saturday, June 29th, 2013 between 4:00pm – 6:00 pm at the covered pavilion at LaPrades Marina on Lake Burton, Georgia. The forum will be open to the public and residents of Lake Burton, Lake Seed and Lake Rabun. This will be the first public forum of the Senate race and will be structured to allow the candidates to introduce their families, lay out their platforms, and meet Georgia voters. The lake setting will provide a casual and informal occasion to meet and talk with the next Senator to represent the people of Georgia.


*No word if Jessica Szilagyi will be bringing her Liberty Drum or not.  If I decide to go, I may just bring a Liberty Air Horn.

    Pye, I think it is ironic that you are asking Nathan that question.

    Recently Jessica S. asked me “Mr. Stout, Do you believe the same thing that the rest of us believe.”

    An epistemological tug of war between modernism and post modernism ended in a tie.
    Both teams were wondering if there is an objective meaning to any written word, especially regarding written (constitutional) law… Or is the meaning of words inherently subjective? Is it meaningful to use words if the subjective meanings are based on different paradigms and experiences?

    We read a chapter out of Common Core 1st grade Math, and sang Koom-bye-Ya… Reconciling the one and the many.

    To be or not to be; That is the question.
    Aye, there’s the rub….

  2. “The forum will be open to the public and residents of Lake Burton, Lake Seed and Lake Rabun.”

    I guess residents of Lake Burton, Lake Seed and Lake Rabun aren’t considered part of “the public”?
