This post is reprinted with permission of The Taxpayers Channel (Greenwood). 

This afternoon, the bankruptcy court entered an order approving the Settlement Agreement in the Express Grain bankruptcy case.

A Wise Look at Wisdom

Wisdom always seems to be in short supply.  Such is true in the past, such is true today, and such will be true tomorrow.  The late Dr. Frank Pollard (First Baptist Church-Jackson) preached on what it means to be wise in this 1993 sermon.  He presented his message in his usual style that was serious but not boring and at times entertaining.  Enjoy.

The Return of the Dragon

HBO dropped The House of the Dragon trailer recently.  A prequel to the series with the infamous season eight, The House of the Dragon tells the story of the Targaryan rise to power.  The show lacks several flaws that doomed its predecessor. The Fat Man actually finished the book (bastard),  thus providing a script for the showrunners to follow.  Speaking of showrunners, D & D are not affiliated with the project as Miguel Sapochnick is in their stead.  He directed the best episodes of the earlier series such as Hardhomme, Battle of the Bastards, and the best episode of all, The Winds of Winter. Enjoy the trailer posted below.

D.L. Gardner: The Source of Hateful Division in America

What an odd intersection of emotions. This past Sunday many celebrated Mother’s Day at church while others protested at the same churches in favor of mothers’ rights to abort their children. Imagine the emotions of mothers who had chosen to abort their children interacting with mothers who had chosen to carry their children to birth. If emotions were not high enough, imagine how the thoughts of church influenced all of these mothers.

Ben Shapiro: For the Left, Children are Either Obstacles or Tools

In the aftermath of a leaked Supreme Court draft majority decision prospectively overruling Roe v. Wade, the Left in the United States has gone into full-fledged panic mode. That outsized panic has manifested as a variety of unconvincing or blatantly immoral arguments: the argument that abortion is a necessary adjunct to women's freedom -- as though contraception doesn't exist, and as though women are never responsible for their own sexual decisions and the consequences thereof; the argument that unless society provides for any number of government programs, abortion should not be prohibited -- as though the solution to lack of universal child care is the death of the child; the argument that conservatives will next attempt to outlaw interracial marriage -- an absurd slander on its face.

Let the Clawbacks Begin

The Mississippi Attorney General is finally trying to claw back the welfare funds shoveled out to the Krewe of New.   Brad Pigott sued John Davis, Nancy New, and 36 other defendants for TANF funds gained through illegal means in Hinds County Circuit Court today. Some of the high-profile defendants include: Ted "The Million Dollar Man" Dibiase, Sr., Ted "No Dollar" Dibiase, Jr., Brett Dibiase, Nicholas "Uncle Hushpuppy" Cronin Coughlin, Paul Lacoste, Brett Favre, and Marcus Dupree.  Never let it be said the Phil Bryant and the Krewe of New weren't jock-sniffers.  

JJ is still reading the lawsuit but it is posted below.  Stay tuned.

Another Capitol Street Shootout

Correction: The shootout took place between the Daiquiri Bar and Mill Street.  Witnesses told JJ the shootout occurred outside of the Daiquiri Bar.  However, law enforcement said it was halfway down the block to Mill Street.  A witness said the target left the bar but law enforcement think he left the King Edward Hotel.   Law enforcement reports there were no injuries.

Original post: A shootout took place at where else but outside of the Daquiri Bar on Capitol Street a few minutes ago.

D.L. Gardner: Things That Aren't So

Remember when President Reagan said, “It isn't so much that liberals are ignorant. It's just that they know so many things that aren't so.” Offspring of those liberals have grown up to be extreme far LEFT woke progressives whose belief systems have little to do with reality and everything to do with disruption and division.

Ted Rall: Better a Pretend Fight than None at All

 A friend and I were at a bar when someone opined that France didn't resist the German invasion in 1940. "It's true, France lost fast," my friend replied. "But they fought hard. They lost 90,000 troops in six weeks. It was a bloodbath. We lost 58,000 over a decade in Vietnam but we're still whining about it."

Every conflict ends with a winner and a loser. There is no shame in losing -- only in not trying. 

Democrats need to learn this lesson. Voters want their elected representatives to fight for them.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
