Big Lies In A Little Town

This is it, and it is repeated over and over again by city commissioners and the public who have been deliberately misinformed :

"Judge Tinlin has ordered that we must permit all vendors ( flea market tschotkes, old clothes, jewelry etc.) or none."

This false statement began with the City attorneys Brownchurch and it is taken for gospel with the city commissioners two of which are attorneys.

Arists are now banned from offering their work for sale on publlic property throughout most of St. Augustine

Peruse the court decision (indexed on the right margin) yourself to see if you can find such an order. You will not find it.

"The key-word here is blackwhite. Like so many Newspeak words, this word has two mutually contradictory meanings. Applied to an opponent, it means the habit of impudently claiming that black is white, in contradiction of the plain facts." From George Orwell's novel 1984


  1. Can you say. . .

  2. it is trully a pitty that your city would stoop so low as to totally ban art sales in the plaza. I am praying that somehow some way justice prevails. I am in favor of artistic rights. I would love to see the artists win their couragous fight against the monster St. Augustine city officials. May they rot in darknes
