let's hope they will still come- after all it's a very pro LGBT company. let's hope Nissan, Toyota, continental tire, ingalls all decide to stay...

PayPal isn't bringing 400 jobs to Charlotte now...

Make everyone mind their manners. Frustrated lonely and bored doctor and lawyer wives have been known to lose their life perspective and take their anger out in inappropriate places.

Hi Donner. Thanks for trolling KF's TwitterCoverage.

Idiot. NObody was paid a cent.

Is that you Andrew?

Occam's razor... Of course someone is getting paid.

Funny that you think Andrew or Donner from either of their perspectives would be on here!

Gene and Mattiace are well aware of the money arrayed from the west side of HC to take them to the mat in court. Stupid Gene thinks they are only there to be milked.

Donner reads here multiple times an hour greenhorn. Ever since Kingfish launched his own competing business. Please catch up. Quickly. For your sake.

Time to start chalking the bike paths with political statements. Don't you think Gene?

The people pissed off about the possibility of Costco locating on HCP have only themselves to blame. They should have done their due diligence as to why HCP was built and known was designed as a commercial development BEFORE they bought houses in the area. The cry babies have complained about every new structure being built in the area. If you don't like it then get the heck out!

9:26 you're making yourself look stupid. You don't know what you're talking about. You and yours have tried to intimidate and threaten at least one too many of your own neighbors!

Hey, that attitude has worked for the Jackson Boomtown. Right?

Hope you enjoy the legal bills Gene incurs on your behalf. Let's see who cries from the financial paid first. The schmoes or the people with homes near HC.

Personally, I can't wait to not go to Costco wherever it's located.

Wish we had a thread to talk about bullshit law that Feelip, Feel, and Tater wasted time on while our roads and bridges are crumbling under us. I hope that bridge holds up while y'all sit in traffic tomorrow. If it doesn't, I guess you can blame the gay folks.

9:32 for my sake? Are you freaking kidding me? As if anything someone like you thinks has a thing to do with my sake? Get. A. Life.

This court battle is going to be glorious @9:38. Can't wait to tap the bottom of your meager pockets.

Gene is fine. West Ridgeland needs to realize their small (though loud and rude) percentage.

9:55 My pockets are not affected. You tried and failed to collect for the silly lawsuit. Friendly neighbor.

I guess a Costco would take EBT and draw the apartment dwelling crowd from Old Canton to Highland Colony for the weekly supply run. As much as I hate hyperbole and hysteria what exactly would prevent a Costco from looking like the old Sam's on County Line in a few years?

Bulk shopper said...

I cannot wait to load my minivan and head to Ridgeland's Costco! I plan to buy a years supply of toilet paper, paper plates, paper towels, beef jerky and detergent. If there is a god in heaven, they will be serving samples of Vienna sausage and fancy ice cream for me to snack on while shopping

I'm sure our Guv hopes that 9:52 keeps posting. With enemies this devoid of logic, our Guv looks better and better.

Costco Rep said...

This may all be moot. Costco is now reconsidering its plan to open a store in Mississippi after the passage of the Freedom to Discriminate Law.

Wouldn't it be funny if Costco were to pull out because of the recent can't jail religious bigots law

Questioning The Madness said...

All the BS aside, someone up there ^^^ asked what seems to be a very good question. Loosely quoting here, "What's to keep a Highland Colony Costco from looking exactly like the Jackson Sam's Club in a couple of years?"

Do we really need another place to buy large quantities of ketchup, peanuts, paper clips, salsa, sectioned foam plates, frozen chicken breasts and Vietnamese shrimp?

Amazingly, the new Sams Club in Madison has a full parking lot every day but there's not a damned thing you can buy there that you can't buy at Wal Mart and other places all over the Metro. Maybe it's the 'Club Card' that makes people feel special. And they give you a credit card when you join too. So, there's that.

This is going to be tied up in court for a very long time.

The battle lines that have been drawn are going to make for an ugly Muni in 2017. The majority behind this Costco subterfuge better start fundraising their asses off right now because there's going to be big, big money targeting their defeats. Guaranteed.

I know a lot of people in other areas who love COSTCO vs. Sam's. I own my businesses so everything I have is tied up in customer service, quality products and daily risk because as Sam Walton said "people vote with their feet". For those of you who don't own businesses...like it or not, Madison and Ridgeland are sandwiched between Jackson and Holmes County. Look at the license plates. Cities grow and it's a free country. HCP is a commercial project and it will continue to be saturated with more businesses which pay the majority of taxes. I don't live in Ridgeland but I think Gene is a very good mayor and he understands Ridgeland doesn't exist in a vacuum and you can either manage inevitable, constant change or you can, like Jackson, sit on your hands and hope for the best. Now I have to get to work selling stuff so you can buy stuff so I can pay taxes so the state and feds can spend the money in whatever way they choose. And if Bernie becomes president I'll quite, put on the black pajama uniform and line up for my share of rice along with everyone else.

8:45,
Didn't last night's action take the wind out of the sails of the lawsuit? Essentially ratifying the vote with proper notice. It looked to me like the board members voted as their most vocal constituents wanted. Perhaps some will be upset with Gene, but the majority still backed the action. So, the majority plus the non-vocal in the dissenting districts easily makes this a non-issue come election time.

LOL You don't live in Ridgeland but you show up here to carry water for McGee. LOL Sure, anything you say. LOL

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!!!
