Tonight at City Hall

Tonight's meeting of the Jackson City Council should be interesting.  Kenneth Stokes wants to discuss police chases.  Ashby Foote wants to discuss the issue of feral dogs rampaging at the zoo.  There have been no less than four incidents of dog attacks at the zoo since 2006.  Over twenty animals have been killed by these beasts.  Hopefully the city council will hold someone accountable for this problem and demand some solutions.  The rest of the agenda is posted below.




Meanwhile, Jackson City Council President Melvin Priester, Mr. wants to make some changes to the whole circus surrounding public comments:

INTRODUCTION OF ORDINANCES
ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI RENAMING FLAG CHAPEL ROAD (FROM CLINTON BOULEVARD TO NORTHSIDE DRIVE) TO
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA DRIVE. (STAMPS)

If they have to rename something why not rename Flag Chapel from Northside Dr. to Cynthia Road? That way it would tie in to all the other presidential streets in Presidential Hills. When will Jackson get around to renaming some streets for Bill Clinton, George Bush and Ronald Reagan? I'm holding my breath!!!

23. PRESENTATION: WARD THREE PRESENTATION TO ALPHA PHI ALPHA FRATERNITY (STOKES)


Anybody have an idea what this is about?

Resolution # 25....maybe Jacktown has asked the United Nations for financial help and those idiots are paying a visit to assess Jacktown?

Item 24. (I'm not typing it out here)

I've never heard of such group. What's their budget? What do they hope to achieve? Who constitutes the membership? I'll find out on The Google but does anyone here know more about them and their visit?
Curious as to what WGEPAD thought of our fair city. I hope they enjoyed a pig ear sammich.

Not surprising that Stamps would want to rename a street for the President that has done more to damage blacks in the United States than anyone since Reconstruction. Got to pander to the uninformed, after all. Pathetic.

good for Melvin Priester on limiting time allowed for Proclamations......He should probably go a step further and limit each council member to one proclamation per month, and they are only allowed once per Quarter.

Socrates is making quite the steady paycheck from the City of Jackson. Really paid off, him paying for Yarber.

An armed night watchman can take care of the dogs at the zoo. This is a no brainer, the zoo has always had problems with dogs and will continue to have problems. You just deal with it when you can, and don't call the press when you do.

Route the out of town poooolice chases by the zoo...they could run over some of the stray dogs as they dodge the old peeples and the chirrins.....

Just put a little doggie door in the tiger cage with a sign that says "doggy biskits". Just like an old foghorn leghorn cartoon.

Garrett Enterprises is robing the city blind, and is probably a solid contributor to furthering EPA violations on behalf of the city

Reading this agenda makes me wonder if Stokes is the one in charge down there. 80% of the agenda is driven by him. Sad that there are not 4 council members that can stand him down like the supervisors did.

K Stokes IS a feral dog!

5:38 The only problem is, the new young bucks on the council look at Stokes and realize that if they follow his lead, they'll be there as long as they wish. Stamps is a perfect example.

Pays to be black said...

If Kenneth stokes wasn't black, he would be arrested.

Can you just imagine the size of the street sign that has PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA DRIVE on it. Stupid Sick. No wonder one can't sell a house in Jacktown. No wonder the only business left in Jacktown are convenience store. No wonder the Jackson Zoo a smorgasbord for the neighborhood dogs. No wonder the Jackson school system is worse than ones in Africa. No wonder citizens are buying rifles & handguns at record pace. I'm so fed up of the poor black leadership in Jacktown. My prayer go out to the few good citizen in Jackson.

On the other hand, maybe all of the city council folks came to the conclusion, f***k all the f********gwhite!folks who've f******d us all these years. Maybe? I'm sure all you Bubba Carpenters would have been much more, shall we say, magnanimous. Except that may not be in your word hospital. Big-minded. There you go.

Is Margaret Barrett Simon on the council anymore? I'd like to see her attendance record.

"Is Margaret Barrett Simon on the council anymore? I'd like to see her attendance record."


Last I remember hearing anything out of Margaret Barrett Simon . . . she was saying something about Bright Lights/Belhaven Nights and then mumbled about Eudora Welty & the old Jitney Jungle on Fortification St,

Speaking of IQs, Does Barrett-Simon even register on the scale? At all?

Why stop at a street, re-name the entire town. Let's see, "O'ville", "Obamaville" or maybe even "Obamatown". Either would work, since the town looks a lot like his presidency, one failure after another! Not to mention the incompetent folks, in all the top tier positions that are in charge.

6:44. Sure--complete and absolute failure. My stock portfolio says otherwise.

So what you are admitting is, for all his bluster, ranting and raving about the one-percenters, and how Wall Street and Big Bank are screwing "the folks", that pos was no different than any other pol. Stock market goes up, middle class shrinks, gov't takes more control over "the folks", most of which are too stupid to realize it. I'm soooo happy for you.

From my view point it looks like there is only one person on the Jackson city council. There might be a few carbon copies around. Time to move the capital city. It is already the laughing stock of the rest of the U.S.

Got some info that will help the zoo save their animals from the dogs.
File some charges against the animals that were eaten by the dogs. Jackson cops should be right there to save them. They are always right on the spot to save the thugs and criminals. Just start referring to the animals as thugs and criminals.
You can thank me later for saving the zoo animals.

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.
