Steen = Stokes?

A new robocall that went out tonight in Madison County attacks supervisor Gerald Steen as standing against economic development.  It even asks if he is going to be the Kenneth Stokes of Madison County.  Listen for yourself below .

Was out in the county the other day and came across "Karl Banks Pave This Road" painted in larger letters across the roadway.

The notion that Steen is akin to Kenny Stokes is laughable.

How dare Steen try to stop giving Rudy $1.2 million for nothing. Karl, Rudy, Tim and Barber will try to take him out for defying the Godfather.

being against "economic development" usually means being against government borrowing money or spending tax money on projects the free market would never undertake.... like the Jackson convention center hotel project. I'll support being against "economic development" like that every time.

It sounds like Ole Jim recorded the call from a bathroom stall at Madison Elementary School. I'm sure the phones are just blowing up this morning after it went out (satire). May be an FCC violation because it wasn't for a candidate or candidates committee. Not 100% there though

I wonder if there's any connection to the airport follies. Mad Cty Journal, 3/5/14:

"District 3 Supervisor Gerald Steen last week in an open meeting asked Coursey (of MCEDA) to hand over the contract and board minutes related to Project Phoenix to County Administrator Mark Houston."

Steen tried to big a big shot when he became a BOS. He was going to run the show and teach those county people who was boss cause he was so much wiser than they were. Well Gerald, you not the boss and your not that wise. Kind of a wake up call and what we like to say is, "A A Teachable Moment."

@ 9:49, it should be "you're not the boss and you're not that wise."

It should be obvious to the politically aware of what is going on with mr steen and mr lott - they are playing the old game of pretending to be the citizens savior the year before the next election. Some people remember that mr steen was the architect of the Tax Increase his first year in office, and mr lott hasn't had an original plan or thought since he was elected to the Board.

Teachable moment indeed, 11:28. Well done.

Steen requested the developer of list rabbit deliver dirt and OTHER things to his house before he voted on lost rabbit going forward. The developer said no and steen voted against him. Sounds a lot like stokes to me....

Steen swaps his vote for favors. Gene Magee was glad to get rid of him in ridgeland.

Us hard working folks in lost rabbit have money and will spend it to make sure steen is gone!!

Didn't Steen have a campaign promise? What was it? Oh...I remember now, he said he wouldn't vote for a tax raise. So what did he do when he got elected? Raised YO TAXES!!!! YO is intentional if the Blog Nazi feels the need to chime in between his Dungeon and Dragons and Xbox play.

Hey Steen...they are paving some roads by my house...can you get them to do my driveway? Its all LEGAL right?

@ 12:06 Sorry, I don't normally try to police grammar, but the comment offered the perfect setup for some humor. Obviously, you did not find it funny.

Steen lost rabbit was worth saving!! You wouldn't vote to save us..... Now you can pay the ultimate political price! Your friend at Madison city hall......

It may not apply to "Kennuf" Steen to be a "teachable" one be me "learnable". Steene done pisssed offQueen mary, Elvis, Brick Barber, King Karl and Princess Pace. now that's a record of putting enemies together disliking him. Maybe his next job would be teaching Political Science at Tulane. Maybe his no. 2 man lott could teach "Biz Nez"!

Rudy must have run out of campaign money for Steen. he sure voted for all of Rudy's projects the past two years.

This email went out Friday evening:

Dinsmor residents,

Last night Dinsmor residents received a political "robo" call originating in Seattle, WA from a person claiming to be "Jim Smith with Let's Go Madison". This call was critical of District 3 Supervisor Gerald Steen and his inquiries most likely related to certain non-public Madison County Economic Development Authority (MCEDA) projects. I would like to state for the record that I am in no way associated with this call.

I am Supervisor Steen's appointee to the MCEDA board and represent you as District Three director on this board. As your volunteer President of Dinsmor and volunteer Director on MCEDA's board I, like you, support open and honest government. Additionally, since my appointment last fall, have encouraged and supported Supervisor Steen's inquiries and oversight into MCEDA's financial affairs. This, after all, is a government authority.

It is unfortunate we are subjected to these political "robo" calls from unknown sources with unlimited funds to produce them. In the future, please know that I nor any other member of the Dinsmor board will ever be a party to a misleading or malicious "robo" call or mail campaign.

My family and I appreciate you seeing this for what it is and thank each of you for being our good neighbors and friends.

Warm Regards,

Jim Smith
President
Dinsmor HOA

I just got that same fake robo call tonight. It originated from 360-322-6200.
I hope someone can track down who is behind this.

I was routed through an app that originated in Dinsmor subdivision

Jim smith, we all see you concerned about you name and your connection to Steen, but before you decide to get all snugly with mr steen you should read his case file located in the Court house..... He is and was a dead beat dad who refused to pay child support.

So, to recap: Kingfish gets all hot and bothered over the possibility of slander regarding the 'dog pound woman' but it's 'no holds barred' when it comes to the above libelous remarks about Steen. Kingfish puts on a different protocol cap every morning.

Most here miss the point. What kind of people do this sort of thing? Sinister and evil people who will spread malicious lies to achieve unchallenged political power. Can any of you guess who that might be in our county government?

Re: Steen. Steen is a public figure who asked for this scrutiny when he ran for office and took our tax dollars. Check your history books about Harry Truman's views on this matter (hint: look under "kitchen"). Then read and re-read the First Amendment until you get it through your alleged head.

I have no idea who the "dog pound lady" is, so I'll file her under private citizen - different category altogether.

And, as many people here have stated to many pinheads on many occasions - if you don't like KF's decisions (especially about running the risk of going broke and losing his blog from paying a legal defense bill defending against a slander suit) - go start your own blog and slander whomsoever you like. His money, his blog, his rules.

Anonymous said...

Amen 9:55 AM! KF gives commenters a whole lotta rope but the losers who think they get to write anything they want at any given time are just plain ignorant.

Anonymous said...

9:55 is undoubtedly the same Rube who always chimes in to defend KF any time someone shines a spotlight on his nonsensical, momentary policies. 9:55 is always so quick on the trigger, that one must conclude he is in fact, the Kingfish himself. Never fails. Same quick response, same rhetoric, same sentence structure, same words, same attitude.

And to top it off with a lie, he claims he has no idea who 'dog pound woman is' while at the same time wants us to believe he keeps up with this blog site.

And for the information of the unwise rube at 9:55 (and his amen-er) one can never be guilty of slander for mirroring what is already published in the public domain.

Go start your own blog, he whines. yada yada.

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.

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.
