Read 'em and weep. Now the real wheeling and dealing can start.

McDaniel should be excited he gets to discuss the constitution on his own committee. I'm sure he will see plenty of action there over the next 4 years.

Does any of this have any meaning?

Sound and Fury, etc., etc.

And I am unrepresented because my senator is now a judge.

McDaniel got one vice chair spot and one meaningless chair spot. Wonder what he expected?

This means very little to most people. However, I'll be happy to explain what I know about it. I've been around awhile. Never in my experience (or in the experience of anyone I know) has our senate been so poorly lead. The Lt. Gov is a tyrant. He listens to no one and requires everyone to vote exactly as he tells them. He's young, inexperienced, and has let power go straight to his head. If a senator votes outside of how he tells them, they are dead to him. What does this mean to most Mississippians? It means you are not represented by your senator. They are forced by Tate to do what Tate wants, regardless of what is in the beat interest of their districts or the people who elected them. So, to answer the person that said their Sen was a judge & are they now not represented-the short answer-you were never represented. Your senator & any other senator has been forced to vote in Tate's block or suffer the consequences (loss of chairmanship, vice ch., committee assignments, etc.). There is no democracy in our current government that's lead by Tate Reeves. If you doubt me on this, you can look at the votes your Republican senator makes on issues. Your senator will vote only as he's told to vote by the Lt. Governor. Want to take it a step farther? Find an issue that the Lt Gov is supporting & ask your senator to vote differently. I'll bet you lunch it won't happen. Believe me-it's Tate's way or it's the highway. It is a sad day in our state. Four more years of him will be devistating.
Other issue-so what if you are represented by a democratic senator? Well, he/she is likely to vote what is in the best interest of their districts. However, with Rep in the majority (and Tate controlling ever Rep vote), your dem senator's vote is useless.
We've lost all from of democracy in our govt. Hate to be so down on it, but it's the sad truth.

Sounds like we are electing some poor senators. We should elect senators that can stand up like a man. We do not need any more yes men.

I agree 9:06 and 10:39. The problem is that probably 95% of the voters of our state have no clue this is going on. The other 5% are making money off of it. The legislature and elected officials are a sham. We need to elect people who have a conscious & then let them know where we stand & then watch their votes & then let them know when we are unhappy with the way they voted. Instead, we vote for who we recognize & then don't think about it until something comes up about guns or abortion or one if those issues & then we do nothing.

The people vote for a politician. We have to stop this habit. This is a habit worse than smoking.

I would think 9:06 was Melanie....but not enough grammatical errors to be so.

Why bring Melanie into this? All she has done is try to bring true conservatism to our state before it slips away forever into the chubby hands of the establishment power brokers.
You're probably just jealous because she's beautiful.

Sounded like Melanie but I thought she only expressed herself on FB. Guess we ought to welcome her to this page.

LG's have long held plenty of power over the Senate - was true in MS up until Amy's second term and Pheel. Go back before that and check the temperature of the Senators - those in 'the Club' had plenty of say, just as they do now. But if you are one that wants to be a bitcher and crier, then you can get sent to the back bench. And - BTW - the same was always true in the House as well. Go check the ledgers for House members under Buddie, Tim, and McCoy.

Bitch bitch bitch. Go ahead and pack up your toys and go back to Natchez, 9:06

I think 9:06 is Watson, but I haven't been around as long as he has. He's so important.

May be a bad system but it has been this way for a long time. Power is always is the hands of a few.

If it is a politician it is crooked. The party does not matter. Democrat, republican, what ever you call it, it is still a crook.
If you call yourself a member of either party you are the problem.

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.
