I have reported illegal immigrants working at construction sites in Ridgeland to the governor's office for several years.

I was ignored every time.

Another useless presser by a useless politician.

Be sure to say something. We will let you slide if it is a white person. If it is a minority or one of the imports you will be hounded to hell and back.

Are you kidding?... these people are coming for help and a fresh new start. No different than founding fathers did. We need to be more sensitive as a whole and show compassion as a nation. Please allow those who wish to enter in this welcoming country. No need for the nasty vetting and hogwash. Give it a rest fox news.

9:33 You are apparently ignorant of the fact that when my ancestors came there was no welfare, food stamps, EBT cards, Medicaid, etc - no entitlement programs whatsoever. Following the biblical precepts, which were reinforced in secular terms in Jamestown, VA in 1419 - you worked or you starved. Period.

It is a little known fact that 1/3 of the European immigrants to the USA in the 19th century found it too hard to succeed here so they went back.

And, of course, they respected US law and immigrated here legally. And there was no such thing as an anchor baby to start the never-ending flow of entitlements for those who never contributed anything to society.

If you see something, shoot it. said...

Department of Homeland Security is run by a Muslim. Don't expect them to take any preventative actions against any of their fellow Muslims.

Meaningless Presser Alert said...

'See Something, Say Something', is a do-nothing, Feel-Good gimmick. Just like Barbara Bush and "Just Say No". Nothing has ever been accomplished by 'say something'. If you 'say something' you will be met by "I can't do anything unless they actually break a law and you swear out an affidavit.

If you want to 'see something' take a pothole tour of the 'trailer park' in central, downtown-Canton and look at a hundred dilapidated trailer shells populated with illegals. You will not be able to drive over 3 miles an hour because of the craters in the roadway. And after you have 'seen something' you will indeed 'say something', like.....'Get me the hell back to civilization!'

Someone please report 9:33 to the Governor.

Give it a break guys, this is about more than reporting seeing a suspected Mexican waiting tables at El Sombrero. You may have missed the news, there is some bad stuff going on and we do need to take this seriously.

9:15 You asked how the deputy became governor. He was elected by the people, read that as the majority who voted for the Republican governor. If that displeases you, there are 49 other states that you can move to and from your comment, Illinois (around the Chicago area) would probably suit you just fine. Please "feel" free to move there.

The Jamestown settlement was in 1607. They had one Vicar. The had a governing elected council with Capt. Wingfield elected president. They were German and English and not a religious sect.

In short order, a Portuguese ship delivered 20 slaves to help them with the tobacco.

You are probably thinking of the Puritans at Plymouth but their religious order did not last very long once secularly inclined people came. Indeed, while they broke off into small groups, one of which settled in Salem and killed witches, the fact is the Puritans didn't last long as a religious sect.

And, you should look at the ship manifests of the Puritans and the Jamestown settlers. The were given tools and supplies to start colonies.

No there wasn't " welfare" but there was for both colonies , was sharing of what food did exist and living a communal life . Do you really think one man built the edifices? Do you think each woman did the sewing for just her family? Good grief , women made quilts together for a reason into the 20th century. You cannot efficiently do some work alone!

Early immigrants were also given free land and later on there were land grants.

None of the early settlers made those who became ill or infirm work but rather took care of them. Neighbors looked after neighbors.

Yes, it was a harsh existence but so was living in Europe if you were not wealthy.

Even during the Depression, the descendants of my early settlers , fixed large meals at midday and those in the immediate area who didn't have enough food were welcomed. Neighbors joined together to raise barns and repair neighbors homes. The joined together to make ditches where needed, and clear land.

If your ancestors were actually FFVs, I am stunned you don't know this.

Did some of you miss that this is about Homeland Security and you should be on the alert for terrorists not illegal immigrants?

You are to report suspicious activity or radical rants or alarming behaviors/ erratic behaviors/behavior changes.

If you see someone carrying pipes and wiring into a house and there's no plumber's or electrician trucks or bags of fertilizer into an apartment, there's your hint of something to report.

If you are at a gun show and someone who seems crazier than 10 yard dogs is buying assault weapons, maybe you should say something!

God save us from !

Buys Pressure Cookers On Ebay said...

7:34; Please give two example of what I might see that I should report? But, let me guess:

Somebody in the checkout line at Wal Mart with eleven pressure cookers in his basket.

A guy in Mulsim Garb at Ace Hardware asking them to cut three twelve foot pipes into 11 inch sections.

Somebody buying gun powder, primer and boxes of nails at Bass Pro Shop.

Hell.........I'll just wait for YOUR list.

PS: Every March I buy a dozen huge bags of fertilizer and quietly carry them into a shed in my back yard. Please don't report me. I'm Baptist.

I believe that was Nancy Reagan that termed "Just say No".
Not 100% sure but I think that's right....

When did the U.S. become the dumping ground for rejects from other countries? Now we not only welcome the trash, we will go and get them. What do the people of America expect. The politicians find the rejects in other countries, use tax payers money to ship them to the U.S. use the tax payers money to support them, and set back and wait for the votes that pour in with guarantees of another term.
Results are life long politicians who know nothing about life other than spending tax payers money while stuffing all they can in their own pocket.

7:25; Might have been Nancy who initially said it, or was told to say it, but it was Miss Barbara who popularized it. Regardless, it was as totally meaningless as Fordice's "Litter Free by 2003!"

This is what I see: an idiot career republican politician (I know, all that's very redundant) preying on the fears of the gun tottin Bubbas in our state. All the while the politician is filling his pockets with donations & getting richer by the minute off the fears of people who don't know any better.

Ok. I reported it. I've done my service.

I see a governor whose DFA minions are posting "no guns" signs on all "their" state buildings, in spite of the fact that guns are legal there. That makes state employees and visitors doing business with the state very soft targets for terrorists, and makes the governor and agencies complicit in any such attack. So I'm saying something - the governor, DFA chief and AG are all wrong in trying to help the terrorists instead of following the law.

This campaign has been in use by US Homeland Security for over 10 years, and has been around in Mississippi since at least 2008. Looks like Barnes and Santa Cruz are trying to stay relevant and useful -- nice try!

Is this another unnecessary $1million campaign given as an emergency contract to the boys at Frontier? I can see them producing some goofy commercials with Phil, Albert and other impotent people talking about how great Phil's wife is and how she deserves to be protected from the Syrian refugees.Are we going to be told to hitch up our britches and strap on our gun belt each morning in order to protect our great state from those who want to do us harm?

some redneck, somewhere ( if not a mob of rednecks) is going to turn this 'campaign' into a 'isa gonna report the peepul I don't like' and cause one hek of a headache for law enforcement. Not to mention the dramatic soccer moms. Oh boy.
Fox News ( CNN, MSNBC et al) has got the fear a pumpin' and trump is fanning the flames.

Today I heard, " they're letting Muslims in the country!" Newsflash. They're already here and have been here for quite sometime.

3:38-you are exactly right. I can see Josh running up to Gubner Feel saying, "hey look at this snappy new plan...we use the Mrs. Gubner Feel to show we like women. What ya thank? Ya like? Or what about you jumping out of a phone booth with a big superman cape on to save our state? What ya thank? Ya like? It'll only cost $2 million. That's $1.8 fer me and then $200k for someone else to do all the werk. What ya thank? Ya like?" Most corrupt state in the nation. Sorriest excuse for leadership. A bunch of dumba$$ Bubbas who keep re-electing the same bullshit. The bullshit keeps saying the same rhetoric.

10:32am. It was Nancy. She was the one who did all the PSA's with celebrities and lead the entire "Just Say No" campaign. Barbara may have continued it (maybe), but that was Nancy's baby through and through.

Someone said this was only for terrorists and not for illegals. I'm confused. Who are we supposed to be afraid of this week? Are we sure this isn't a government plot to get you to spy on your neighbors? Which group am I buying more guns to fend off? Terrorists, illegals, or the government? Have new groups been added that I should also be terrified of that I'm not aware of?

Phil Bryant became State Auditor after Steve Patterson pleaded guilty in court for a felony. His wife was driving a Range Rover with an undercover tag that had been issued to the Department of Audit for investigative use. Patterson signed a statement that the SUV had been in a garage in Greenwood being worked on. The "garage" turned out to be a "fire apparatus" company. No balls AG Mike Moore refused to do anything about it until Kim Sweet from WLBT and Liz Carroll from WAPT started turning up the heat in early 1996. When Patterson cut his deal to resign, Cowboy Phil went to Kirk Fordice (who must have been dementia early on" and asked to be appointed as State Auditor. So you have a Deputy Sheriff who ran for supervisor in Rankin County against Larry Swales and got his ass beat! He then ran for the House and was elected riding Trigger, then was appointed Auditor. We really have Kirk Fordice to thanks for Cowboy Phil! Remember that Bryant always said that Mike Moore was the best AG he ever worked with!

Phil spoke on this the other day at DPS and the irony was lost on all who attended. They have turned the first floor of DPS into a museum to the past. It contains items from the "good ole days" of the highway patrol but nothing about the future of law enforcement. The leadership was in the museum where they should stay. They have no clue about fighting terrorism. There is no "Terrorism" check box on the troopers ticket book.

9:13 am Are you really that clueless?

Are you like the mother of the San Bernardino terrorists who should have been concerned but chose to be blind or their next door neighbor?

Are you like the mother whose son killed all those children in Sandy Hook who thought a gun hobby would be good for a mentally ill child?

Are you like the countless people who didn't report Facebook posts that should have been warnings?

I am so sick of those who couch all issues in the absurd extremes as if there is no rational middle ever!

And, your worry about your fertilizer purchases putting you in the crosshairs borders on paranoia so maybe you do bear watching!

Anonymous said...

I'm more concerned about who is going to answer the phone and decide how the information is handled -- will it be some idiot at DPS who is being punished for screwing someone's wife in the stairwell and doesn't give a shit; or will it be a person with a brain who knows what to do when there is a real threat.

I have ZERO confidence in the troopers ability to do this correctly.

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

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.
