Ah, nothing like complete disclosure.

You are a mind blower KING. You ROCK. Those damn wankers with keyboards accessing public records.

How dare you expose Ladd the JournoFraud as a federal tax dodger.

Anonymous said...

Looks to me that Ladd hasn't gotten the message that when the IRS communicates a fierce urgency of now that they mean exactly that.

Oh My! Now who's the kettle and who's the pot?

How in the Hell does she expect a cradle to grave Nanny State to exist if she's not paying her taxes?

Rico Suave said...

I'm sure there will be some incoming rounds on your location shortly.

meaning?

Activate invisible shield Kingfish! The Wrath of Ladd is about to descend upon you.

He means she's gonna KILL you Fish!

Kingfish said...

by the way, I have slapped the clarion ledger around a few times this week so don't accuse me of picking on them.

My question is what is going on over there.

bo darville said...

Incoming rounds? Well, you know you're over the target when you start taking flak, right?

Having actually paid all of my taxes my entire life, can someone explain what would happen next to the Glorious Leader, if they fail to settle their debt with the IRS?

Anonymous said...

Maybe Ladd should contact P.L. Blake? He seems to have some spending cash laying around to help the FOD (Friends of Dickie) in their times of need. Lord knows Dickie could use some gullible member of the press to advance his claim of being framed. Maybe Jim Hood could be her go-between?

Have you ever!!! considered contacting those people you are attempting to hurt, prior to creating such a blog?

Anonymous said...

Hurt? It's public information!

Tom Head said...

If the Clarion-Ledger had any tax issues, I'm sure the JFP would be the first to report on it. I don't see a problem with what 'Fish is doing here. It's not like this is Donna Ladd's personal tax information.

Besides, this does tie in with the question of whether ad-supported print media can be profitable. Donna's position has historically been that ad-supported media (like the JFP) are viable, while subscription-supported media (like the Advocate and Link) are less viable. If the JFP is having tax issues, that's relevant information for people who are thinking of getting into the newspaper business and trying to decide between ad- and subscription-based media.

The threats to Kingfish make it look as if the JFP is going out of her way to hide this information, and I assume they aren't. I'd like to think that if anyone asked Donna about the tax liens, she'd be open and honest about them. Certainly that approach--corporate transparency--is something that she's always advocated.

bo darville said...

You better watch your six Fish, these threats seem sincere. You never know, the JFP Artist in Residence may paint your portrait in a very unflattering light! These people are dangerous!

Anonymous said...

OMG they might fork his yard!

Kingfish said...

as for the CL, she didn't mind trashing them for cutting out Christmas bonuses, making employees pay for coffee, the publisher getting hardwood floors installed, trashing a fairly new young reporter Leah Rupp this week, and posting every other unflattering detail that goes on over there. If they had a tax issue, she would make it a whole story and have more than a few comments about it.

Anonymous said...

I wasn't trying to be a cowboy! I made the shepherds comment, and I was saying it in reference of the thinly veiled threat. We got your back Fish.

All of the tax info is public record right? No one, especially Donna should be upset with "public" information coming to light. That is why if you live in glass houses you shouldn't throw stones!

What goes around comes around.

Never say this or that will happen to me. Just as soon as you do, one day it will happen. Age and maturity teaches us this.

Trust me. This will all come back to haunt you. I truly hope you are not planning on obtaining anyone to advertise on your site. You are NOT!!!! a good business man. I would not even dare to do business with you.

You are too quick to judge, this will come back on you one day.

Kingfish said...

I know. the cowboy reference was to Boondock Saints because the poster said II Duce.

I'm Wyatt F'n Earp!!! hehe.

Anonymous said...

What a weirdo up there "what goes around comes around". Did they forget their meds today?

Since when is a peronsal blog a business? LMAO.

Kingfish said...

judge? Who judged? Did I offer any opinion whatsoever?

I have no idea what is going on over there. None whatsoever and know better than to speculate.

Kingfish said...

There are alot of bloggers in Mississippi being cursed this week.

bo darville said...

Let's not be too myopic here, Anonymous that will never do business with Fish...

What if, just what if, this is the "Coming Around" to the Glorious Leader's "What Goes Around?"

She's been hucking a ton of stones from inside that glass house of hers. Besides, Fish may not be the best business man, but I would say he's a shade better than the person responsible for paying the JFP's taxes.

"Trust me. This will all come back to haunt you"

You mean exposing public information? Are you kidding me?

Fish, seems like you've struck a nerve!

Anonymous said...

The Wanna-Be is upset. Give her some love. Pray for her. Perhaps she'll see the light.

I'm scared. What if this comes around?

I wonder who the JFP's investors are? Hmmmmm.

"It appears that jealousy flows through every vein of your body."

No, that would be alcohol. LMAO

DWF said...

Why would he be jealous of a tax lien? LOL

Kingfish said...

jealous?

HOW?

yup. alcohol. Usually its Dynamite Cabernet, Patz & Hall Pinot or Los Cardos Cabernet, Gentleman Jack or Silver Creek WHiskey, or Spaten Optimator Beer.

The TAX LIEN is because she made GEORGE W. BUSH mad by EXPOSING his LIES.

Has it EVER!!! crossed your mind that perhaps the web site is not up to date? This all seems "ONE SIDED" to me.

If you wanted to be a fair person/business man, you would have contacted JFP for a statement. By the way, nothing has been posted regarding this issue from JFP.

"SO!!!!!!! BE FAIR"

Kingfish said...

You are absolutely right and thank you for posting that little reminder about the basic facts of "factchecking" and journalism.
No one wants to see someone slandered or unfairly maligned. Lies will not be tolerated here.

Having said that, everything on the website has been verified with another agency as being current.

Anonymous said...

I'm sure the JFP has a team of crack journalists on this story and will give a detailed report next issue....

Anonymous said...

See Donna, I told you. Taxes suck. This is what happens though. You want everyone to have healthcare, right? How many people are going without it because you couldn't pay your taxes? I know, that's harsh. But, "It is what it is." I just have this fierce urgency of now, because without your tax money, who is going to pay for little Timmy to get his healthcare he's entitled to?

Anonymous said...

I feel sad for little Timmy......

You have not posted anything about who you have contacted regarding the accuracy of any of this.

Sure would make you look more credible if you posted a statement from JFP.

Kingfish said...

I have copies of the liens that came from the Hinds County Chancery Court this morning and are stamped certified. I would say that is pretty concrete.

Kingfish said...

Like the story about the Prudential case that was so balanced? Didn't see any interviews with the other side's lawyers in that one.

Anonymous said...

What about a statement from JFP?

Are you to ashamed to offer them a courtesy call???

bo darville said...

Damn, looks like somebody turned on the lights in Plato's Cave.

C'mon Fish, squash all dissent with talk of ad hominyms, violation of the user agreement, something, tolerate no difference of opinion...call me a Troll, a rascist, something!

Rico Suave said...

If y'all are taking up a collection for Timmy then let me know. It is so terribly sad that his future has been so jeopardized because Ladd is skipping out on paying her fair share for Timmy's medical care.

Are the JFP's unpaid taxes inaccurate half-truths?

Not going to do it. The Voltaire Free Speech Society is alive and well here at JJ.

You see free speech alot more on this site than you do on others.

By the way, the threats don't get zapped. I enjoy leaving those up.

Ah, the laments from the Glorious Leader. It would appear that in her world, Snide Goeth Before the Fall.

At this rate, I'll never win a "Best of" from the JFP.

And the winner for Best of Jackson 2008 Tax Dodge is the Jackson Free Press.

Desperate? It's called humor and sarcasm. Quite a welcome diversion from all the Scruggsiana antics.

If you can't stand the heat, get outta the kitchen, or off the blogs and websites.

Just an update folks. Little Timmy has taken a turn for the worse. Not only has his health deteriorated, but the white power structure came by and left a flaming bag of 'poo on his doorstep.

something gots to be did about this.

Anonymous said...

Gee, why hasn't Ladd answered this JFP blogger? Could it be that Ladd is exaggerating again? Would be so easy for her to clear the air on her blog, wouldn't it? And, really, she should do it on her blog just like she told Stu Rockoff to communicate on the blog or not at all. Remember that Ladd?

She deleted hmg's post. Pretty much proves that she's deliberately hiding this information from prospective advertisers. Get Yallpolitics on it.

Rico Suave said...

Just noticed King that someone linked to your post over at the C-L forums.

Kingfish said...

Rico, shoot me an email. thanks.

Kingfish said...

By the way, if anyone wondered why I didn't call them to about this matter, well, I have a nice email from ladd several months before this post after I exposed some gross libel in her publication that I was never to contact her again. She can't have it both ways.

Anonymous said...

An update 2 years on. WOW.

Btw, Ladd does have it both ways. Witness her full frontal attacking of Ben Allen over the levees. Sleep with the hounds, get fleas.

Kingfish said...

You are correct. Was on hold for quite awhile today and quite bored. Read through the thread as its kind of funny and saw something that was never addressed. that is all.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

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!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
