The Islamic State's religious scholars have ruled that taking the organs of non-Muslims is permissible under Islamic law to save the life of a Muslim, because killing apostates to eat their flesh has previously been allowed.

The revelation comes in a January 2015 document that was capured by U.S. special forces in Syria in May and obtained by Reuters.

That's the kind of activity it's going to take before the liberals finally realize that ALL Muslims want them dead. Unfortunately our nation has become a nation of pussies, and I believe we are done. Unless those of us in touch with reality all take up arms, all at the same time.

A really good chili recipe. I placed third in a contest with it.

1/3 cup corn flour
3 Tablespoons Chili Powder (Use your favorite brand)

1 1/2 Teaspoons Cumin

1 1/2 Tablespoon Oregano

1 Tablespoon ground chili (the brand was Los Mexicanos, Chili Pequin)

Using a sticky steel bottom skillet Brown ground sirloin and ground pork. Drain liquids into a cup

Pan fry bacon in same pan. Drain grease into same cup. Eat bacon.

Chop onions, and garlic. Saute in pan (add minimal amounts of grease as needed to keep from burning).
Add chopped peppers and keep sauting them

Add all seasoning except for the ground red pepper

Cook until onions are translucent

Add mixture to the meat. Add tomato sauce, rotel, tomato paste, beef broth, and water.

Cook on low to medium heat, stirring in seasoning and tomato sauces until consistent texture.

Take no more than 1 cup of grease from bacon, sirloin and pork and pour back into steel pan.

Heat up and add the 1/3 cup of corn flour and cook like a roux. Add mixture to meat.

Cook on low heat, stirring in pot to prevent burning and sticking. Add minimal amounts of the ground pepper to season to taste.

Spoon off grease that floats to top.

That a great chili recipe, ifin I was judging you would be number 1!

Anonymous said... who's cooler? Ashby Foote or Will Longwitz? Close, right?

Anonymous said...

Ashby by a country mile. One is a has a business acumen, respect of his peers and is humble. The other is a shakedown artist, but artist none the less from Madison.

Great Advertising said...

Farish Street could become the Madison Avenue of the South said...

Good Idea earlier in comments about what was the best story here at JJ. Probably would need a readers choice poll to settle things in a civil fashion.

Will Longwitz any day. In a fight? Longwitz would kick a$$.

There are 41 college bowl games this year. What other state, beside Mississippi, does not host a bowl game.

What other state, beside Mississippi, does not host a bowl game.

And where would it be played? Don't say it......I know what you are thinking.........

Ima Say This Right Here... said...

If there are 41 bowl games and 50 states, must be more than two states that ain't hostin'. Goob!

As soon as we remove the state flag, crime will stop, full employment will be reached, Jackson will become a destination venue and bowl selection people will flock to us.

Anonymous said...

41 college bowl games and 9 are in Florida, one in the Bahamas, 6 in Texas, 4 in California, 4 in Arizona, 3 in Alabama, 3 in Louisiana, etc.

Roughly 29 of those 41 College bowl games are in 6 states

No mention of Madison County not paying $250K in Rudi bills? Or does he get a pass since he pays to advertise on the Kingfishes' Blog?

The Egg Bowl was in Oxford. Ole Miss won.

Almost all bowl games are money losers for the hosts.

I would enjoy seeing more input from women on this forum. I realize that some, or even (statistically) half of the legion of "Anonymous" here *could* be female, but the tone of most comments suggests a heavy testosterone level.

It's amusing (in measured doses) to listen to men bashing and trashing one another (lots of that, here!) and I even get a huge kick out of the numbskulls,knuckleheads and know-nothings who hold forth regularly, as well as the rational men (?) like Burke (and our host, Kingfish himself, of course) who think before they type, and bother to use correct punctuation and spelling. And anyone of either gender gets a laurel and hearty handshake from little Ophelia here, when they reallllly get down good on the atrocious Donna Ladd.

But fellas! Invite your wives, girlfriends,clandestine sweethearts, daughters,or transgendered friends (those getting the estrogen shots) to descend into the maelstrom here. We promise not to turn it into a sewing circle or a recipe swap. Although I do believe I shall sign off now and go try the chili recipe above...Happy 2016,all!

Longwitz is shady, can't be trusted, listens to just a few who line his pockets...Foote is also shady. If I had to vote for just one (assuming they were running against each other)...I would just not vote.

I like these open thread thingys.......

How could there be "roughly 29" bowl games in 6 states?

Kingfish said...


We DID have Christmas this week. It took longer as I waited to get a copy of the AG opinion and Warnock letter to county.

Anonymous said...

Whoa, 12:19. Throwing shade at Ashby Foote for being "shady"? I know Ashby; he's a West Point grad with a large brain and a larger heart. I know not anything of the shady variety.

Hey-some of us ARE women. We are just equal or better than you! :)

@ 2:28 is that you Ashby?? Personally I like Shelby better.

Anonymous said...

Shut-Up, Ophelia. Go take your meds and get back in the kitchen.

I think the concept you are looking for is addition. You add up the number of bowl games that are played six states and the total would be "roughly 29" out of the 41 bowl games being played.

Anonymous said...

Looks like the state must have a warm climate to host the holiday bowls, like Louisiana, Alabama, Texas, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, So. Cal., Arizona.

Mississippi sent 4 teams to bowls.

Sugar Bowl tickets @$150 for 80,000 and they lose money? Plus $20,000,000 for the TV rights? Plus parking, beer and the foam finger?

When did McRaes become Belk?

Anonymous said...

Ophelia, I don't think some of these men have wives or girlfriends. And, some of those that might...well, anyone can get married if they set their standards low enough.
But, what woman in their right mind or who wasn't desperate would date 6:29 am or that guy who was on steroids if that was really his photo? It'd be about like those pitiful women whose only hope for a husband for even 5 minutes is to volunteer to wed a jihadist!

Anonymous said...

March, 2006 - McRae's became Belk's.

Red High Tops said...

@ 8:52; Actually The Egg Bowl was in Starkville. You're right, though, that Ole Miss won. I'm surprised you know that.

When is Crechale's moving?

Who Killed Frank Melton?

Who Killed Chokwe?

Who Killed the lawyer on the four wheeler?

What pound-Bow would it take to pierce the hide of Kenneth Stokes?

Will we ever hear Colundula Green say "Crime Solved"?

So damned many questions going into the new year....

The Number of bowl games in 6 states isn't roughly 29. It is precisely 29. You may be good at simple math but our language eludes you.

Anonymous said...


Here, allow me to assist you with "our language." If the number of bowl games in 6 states is "precisely" 29, it is then, by default and definition, also "roughly" 29. Therefore, you are incorrect by stating that "the number of bowl games in 6 states isn't roughly 29."

The reverse would not ring accurate. Choose your condiment of choice to flavor that foot.

Anonymous said...

9:13 dumbass - "roughly 29" would include 29.1 as well. Let me sell you a ticket for a 50 yard line seat at that 1/10th of a bowl game only you seem to think exists.

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!!!
