"is gets underway"?

Johnny Weir said...

I really like ole Bernie. He's really giving Hill-a-ree a run for her money. Hillary needs to get Bill Clinton to stop supporting her. Bill looks like warmed over death. WoW! Bernie is for real.

Dear God, save us from these imbeciles who support socialism.

Dear God, save us from these imbeciles who support RINOs who will lose just like McCain and Romney.

@8:45 you're being anti-semitic. There is no other conclusion as to why you do not support socialism. Report to re-education camp .

8:45-Amen to that!

Why do you say that?
What would change (for the worse) if he were elected?

Johnny Weir said...

9:43 PM Nothing worse would happen. In fact you will be pleasantly surprise how well the next four years would be.
8:45 PM We already have socialism (Called Welfare).Bernie would take the money from the billionaires and help the middle class. 8:45 PM You must be one of these billionaire. Bernie would keep us from getting tangled up in the "Bush type war". Hillary is government as usual. We can't survive. The republicans canidates are all BIG JOKES. And to end I can't stand Bill Clinton shrilled voice.

To Johnnie Wier and other like idiots.......Bernie's plan will work until me and people like me determine that we can ride the wagon and be just as well off as we are now pulling the wagon. Why would I work just to send the majority of my earnings to a government to give away to those who choose not to work, "Socialism works fine until the Government runs out of other people's money to give away".

That argument carries no weight. None of Sanders' programs would allow you to quit working and live in a comfortable lifestyle. If you want to live on food stamps, go ahead, but I certainly wouldn't.

If at the end of the day, a Sanders presidency meant I'd have to sacrifice and get the 3 series BMW instead of the 5, so be it. I'm not going to quit my job and ride a bike and collect cans in protest.

11:13 Tell us more about what you know on this topic. Please inform all the idiots out here about your research.

Please tell us who, out of the choices, would make the best president and why. I don't pay for network news so I am particularly interested in the GOP candidates' stances on ISIS, abortion, winning again, and boarder walls.

I personally like Vermin Supreme from Massachusetts. He's on youtube and promises to give everyone a pony if he wins the presidency. That would be good news for you, given you are currently pulling your own wagon and all.

Good day for Kasich. The only sensible alternative to the madness.

Shakeup The Campaigns said...

Meanwhile: This morning Trump ought to fire his makeup woman. She decided he was too pale and made him brown or red, depending on the channel.

And Hillary was screaming at the top of her voice, "It's not whether you get knocked down but whether you get up"....an original thought I'm sure.

As if Obama has not 'changed' America enough, now comes Bernie with a plan to make everything and every BODY in the country average. Equality in income, housing, wealth, entitlements. Figure out who has too much 'stuff', seize and redistribute it. He has not yet revealed the name of any other country ever on the planet where that has worked. Maybe some of the faithful on this blog can do that for him. Waiting.

7:21, I believe Denmark has been mentioned numerous times, as has one of my favorite countries, Finland.

The first thing some of you should do is learn what a President can and cannot do!

It should have occurred to all of you by now that if neither house of Congress or the courts failed to exercise their power to act when you've imagined or been told a President exceeded his power, there are only a few explanations available.

1. The President didn't exceed his power and acted legally
2. The President did exceed his power but it is perceived to be in the best interest of the Nation and Congress and the Courts will stand silent rather than admit they are wrong or set a precedent in the law when flexibility is needed until the law catches up with change.
3. The action by the President isn't clearly an excess of power and may be perceived as needed for the office.

No President can significantly change anything without the acquiescence of Congress and the Supreme Court.

All of you should have figured out how government funding is allocated.

All of you should have , by now, figured out what the law is or isn't on your hot button issues . There are reasons that when your party controlled all three branches, you didn't get the hot button issues resolved in your favor!

All of you should have, by now, learned the difference between an economic system and a system of government.( Yes, I know some of you think there is an island Xanadu of pure capitalism but that's because you don't know what an oligarchy is! Or know that island is a criminal haven!)

All of you should have figured out that there is NO pure form of any philosophy or governmental system and never has been as it gets tainted by those in power.

If you have become an informed voter, you will know who is making false promises that cannot be kept and charges against others that are invented.

If you haven't informed yourself, you have already lost your independence and thus your freedom and worse, are contributing to the demise of our Nation by adding to misinformation spewed by those who seek power rather than seeking a stronger Nation!

You can always tell the crazies on this site by the number of words/exclamation points used. Sensible statements need neither.

7:49am....we have exactly nothing in common with Finland or Denmark. Socialism can work when you have 10 million homogeneous people with shared cultural traits and goals (well, for most homogeneous groups). When you have 300 million plus and half of those won't or can't work...

I still think it is funny that the Bernie people still think he's just going to tax the rich when he very clearly outlined how he plans to raise taxes on everyone (or the 1/2 of the country that pays income taxes).

Anonymous said...

The republicans don't stand a chance. There are already to many people receiving government assistance, and they will only cast a vote that indicates they will receive more from the government. The democratic plan from the 50's is working out exactly like they intended.

8:41, I agree. Just stating the countries of comparison.

That's the JJ troll 8:14. Shows up early every morning and leaves a package on the neighbor's lawn.

John Kasich: The 2016 cycle's John Huntsman. DOA in the South.

Anonymous said...

Bush is owned by the special interests. Kasich will continue the Obama presidency. He supports giving Iran the nuclear bomb and making taxpayers pay billions to resettle Muslems in the US and give them lifetime benefits by supporting the Obama budget. He said so in the first debate.

I will be satisfied with either one of the two winners yesterday. It would give us a chance to see what the life long politicians have done to the country.

You seem like a reasonable person, 9:48.

I still think, after the dust settles, Marco Rubio will be the nominee.

We need a fresh face for the party. Time to pass the torch. I want to see a young republican going up against 98 year old white guy bernie and 70 year old white woman Hilario.

I still think, when the dust settles, it will be Marco Rubio.

When the dust settles, I believe Marco Rubio will be the nominee.

He'll do better next debate..........

two more just dropped out.

Gilmore 133 0.0%
Other 4,857 1.7%

4:26, looks to me like the "establishment repubs" - although I'm not sure exactly who you include in that list - got over half the vote. I realize that you count like Christopher from Jones did a couple of years ago and figure that your numbers matter and nobody else's do, but by my math your categorization seems to be doing slightly better overall as the non-establishments.

Anonymous said...

damn kf - you let in comments from folks that call an the idiotic comment at 9:48 'a reasonable person' but to reverse that and point out the other side you scratch?? I find 10:27 to be as stupid as 9:48 - guess you don't want to hear from those that disagree.

Lots more states to come. Southern states, then mid-west. Totally different voting blocks. Then the west dominates. Another block.

Biggest deal is that these primaries (and caucuses) are deciding much in the way of delegates - they get split proportionately. Once March 15th gets here the stakes change - winner take all states. Florida, Ohio, Michigan, all hit mid-March and continue thru June. Anybody making a decision in this election year about where this will end up is bad jumping the shark. Candidates with enough money to make it to the Ides will be playing in the major leagues.

5:05, you don't get irony, do you?

Problem with the Haley Barbour RINOs & Mississippi GOP mercenaries is that they've dated too many strippers, humped too many DC staffers, dumped too many absolutely great wives+families and have had too many vasectomies.


Anonymous said...

8:39, your description of Trump is spot on. Your real republican hasn't voted for a republican in 30 years.

Anonymous said...

Trump hasn't voted in a Republican primary in years. Yet he claims (now) to be a republican. Love the way these folks that want to define what a 'real' republican is, or who they are, have not done anything where it matters - at the polls on election day.

Anonymous said...

Maybe if the republicans had an honest person run for the office of president people would vote for him or her. Same could be said of the democrats.
You can't blame a person for not voting when all of those on the ballot are criminals. Of course we have those people who will vote for any criminal just to say they voted.

Just curious, does anyone know if any of the POTUS candidates on either side are living in the basement of their landlord employee?

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.
