Its Stokes. Nuff said. (Video)

Stokes raised hell about the Byram-Clinton-Bolton corridor project Monday at the regular meeting of the Hinds County Board of Supervisors. Mr. Stokes said the county was wasting "millions" on a parkway that would never be finished while the county ignored mosquito spraying, summer jobs programs for teens, and other pet projects of his.

Supervisor Peggy Hobson-Calhoun explained to the District 5 Supervisor the money spent was federal grant money. The county has to spend the grant money for its designated purpose. If it is spent on anything else, then the county has to return the money to the federal government. Apparently Mr. Stokes either did not understand such basic concepts of government or has another purpose in mind as he went on a tirade. He called for an investigation, accusing other Supervisors of using the project to enrich their friends, and all the while pushing for a nice fat auditing contract for Malachi Financial Products. Here is the video. Enjoy.

Someone should have given Kenny a Snickers bar........then he'd calm down.

At this point I doubt it gets built even with Federal money.

Once Fisher is gone the rate at which Hinds is already going down will pick up speed very rapidly.

The games Graham is playing with Anderson's interim replacement -- to delay any decision until after Fisher's July departure -- is all you need to know.

Don't be surprised if there isn't any interim replacements for Anderson or Fisher until a special election can be held.

Graham would love nothing better than to leverage only 3 votes on the Hinds Board of Sups for an extended period of time. The blizzard of bad 2-1 decisions between now and then will boggle the mind.

Y'all in Hinds are worried about Chokwe when you should be damn concerned about the vituperative police impersonating madman.

Surprisingly, for someone who has a "law" degree, Stokes acts like he does not understand contractual law, i.e., the Lousiana tour bus contract(curious as to the status of that fiasco), and his tirade over the earmarked funds for the parkway that he would like to use for projects other than what they are appropriated for. Not surprising is his continued rude and unprofessional behavior as an elected official.

Kenny is an idiot. Enough said.

Hinds Co. Supervisors really should put Kenny in charge of spending all the money....They could "get some stuff did" then. At least until the FBI came and arrested him....

As a matter of fact, Kenneth Stokes received his law degree from Texas Southern, one of the worst schools in the nation. Never passed the bar from what I was told! A total loser!

"He called for an investigation, accusing other Supervisors of using the project to enrich their friends"

I heard a rumor years ago that the route the parkway was originally going got changed to go through land that Bennie Thompson owns. Never could actually confirm such. Could be interesting if someone with investigative tools could verify.

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.
