Desoto legislators: WAAAAHHHH!!!!

The "Community Editor" for the Desoto Times published an article reporting several Desoto legislators complain Jackson hates Desoto County:

"JACKSON — Legislation coming out of the State Capitol in Jackson is squarely aimed at undermining the state's fastest growing and academically high achieving school system as punishment for helping to defeat charter school legislation last year.

That's the view of several DeSoto County lawmakers battling a flurry of bills coming out of both legislative chambers in Jackson.

In addition to charter school legislation which might siphon funds away from public education, to floating the possibility of appointed rather than elected school superintendents, legislation is being hurled in DeSoto County's direction with the force of heat-seeking missiles, according to members of DeSoto County's legislative delegation.

"I am a Republican long-term and someone who believes in less government but we have a situation in which the State is trying to micromanage the DeSoto County Schools," DeSoto County's senior legislative member State Rep. Wanda Jennings, R-Southaven, said Wednesday.

Fellow House Education Committee member Rep. Forrest Hamilton, R-Olive Branch, said he has been stunned by the resentment towards the success of DeSoto County Schools by lawmakers in other counties, and of DeSoto County lawmakers' opposition last session for charter school legislation.

"The big supporters of charter schools would love to lay the blame for its defeat last session at DeSoto County's feet," Hamilton said. "We were the firewall against it (charter schools) last session. We did stop it. There is a possibility we might to get to kill it again this year."

Hamilton said it's preposterous that lawmakers are the "footstool" of the school system.

"I was elected representative to represent the people," Hamilton said. "Nobody called me and told me how to vote."...

Let me see.... your legislators get on Facebook and BRAG how they stood up to the Republicans and educational reform efforts. Your Mayor and Board of Aldermen in Southaven are out of control. Your Superintendent has decided to assume control of all education in Mississippi despite the fact he is a locally elected superintendent who forgets his place and tries to rise above station. Kuykendall would seek favor with legislature as forced loss upon one Senator and tried to gain victory for another just a few moons ago in a race that saw much coin flow towards election.

No, there is no hate towards Desoto County. No one has criticized Desoto County schools. In fact, this website has used Desoto as an example for Jackson Public Schools as it spends more than $50 million less than JPS. It is just your leaders are showing their true nature and are being exposed by the rest of us who are sick of them. Desoto doesn't run the legislature and damn sure doesn't run the state. Y'all sure didn't mind bragging when you won, now you can quit crying when you lose.

Jackson Republicans hate Desoto republicans much like Rove and Haley Barbour hate the unwashed masses of Tea Partiers! The Dems dreams are all coming true!

In essence, this is the GOP establishment’s attempt to make candidates for Republican nominations prove themselves before blowing winnable elections like Todd Akin and Christine O’Donnell, and Rove’s allies hope the combination of cash and scrutiny does the trick.

“This is a bad idea whose time has come,” former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, a powerhouse fundraiser for Crossroads, said of the new organization, according to an email Monday to donors from Steven Law, head of the Crossroads groups and Conservative Victory Project.

I'm glad that DeSoto county has great public schools, but too many kids in other school districts (JPS) need an alternative (charter) school to boost their academic performance.
Way too many kids in sub-performing districts think Pi r square is a dessert served in the cafeteria.

Lightweights think they can neutralize posts by criticizing the poster's method or by calling him Troll. It's a junior-lightweight tactic that's sophomoric and ineffective. Now, here comes another in 3-2-1.....

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.

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.
