Straight from the Magnolia Bar Listserve.  Hinds County Public Defender Ray Carter provided some colorful and jocular commentary on the airport takeover bill:

I’ll do it, but when ole master gets ready to take the slave’s land, rarely does it do any good to tell him how much cotton you picked, how well you took care of his babies or how quiet you kept when he was raping your neighbors and her daughters. Ole master will proceed anyway because he has no conscious or heart, and financial and personal gain is his master, religion and greatest desire. Nonetheless, we glorious people have never allowed seemingly insurmountable odds stop us from trying or succeeding. I wish us the best! God bless Jackson.

This message was a response to a post by JMAA attorney John May: 

The State of Mississippi is attempting a hostile takeover of Jackson's airports although Jackson owns the land on which both airports sit.  Please join us in this fight to stop this power-grab by the State by doing the following:

1. Call 601-359-3300

2.  Ask for Speaker of the House,  Phillip Gunn and Leave this message:  "PLEASE VOTE NO ON SB 2162.  Leave Jackson airports alone.  Since it ain't broke, don't fix it." 
3.  Make the same call and leave the same message for other members of the House of Representatives.

4.  Send this email to anyone who you think might be interested and willing to join us in this fight and ask them to send this email to people that they know who might be interested and willing to join us in this fight against governmental overreaching. 


Today, it is Jackson, tomorrow it could be some other city.

All this racial animosity. And everywhere. The sooner y'all realize that it's "Us vs. Them" in their worldview, the sooner you'll quit letting yourself be taken for fools. Until then, keep fueling their success with your capital. You aren't one of them any more than that fat, middle-aged white guy who let the "rapper" kid shoot a video at his house.

As the descendant of slave owners, I can't disagree with the truth of what has been less than diplomatically expressed.

What is omitted is that the success of the " masters" is dependent on those white folks that imagine they can become " masters" or hope to ingratiate themselves with the " masters" and get used.

The reality is that they are being manipulated to increasingly accept the blame being attached to the former " slaves" when it's the " masters" who got us to our current mess over time!

And, no, I don't suffer from white guilt. I just bothered to separate fact from fiction , know that what someone does is more important than what someone says , and accept that sociopaths and psychopaths and idiots can be found in every human group of any size that can be named.

It really makes you feel good when a Hinds County prosecutor has such a grasp on reality. No wonder Jackson and Hinds county can't keep criminals an jail.

I thought this was the funny part. Just look at the success of Jackson.

Someone has stirred up the black hornet nest!

Stand firm before they sting you to death with their tongue while you run away.

1)Stand firm against the LBGN (Lesbian ,Bisexual, Gay Nation).
2)Stand firm against the minority of state citizen changing the flag.
3)Stand firm in making the Jackson Airport a more regional airport.
4)Stand firm for the rule of law against the rule of mob.

Think that Carter used to defend death penalty defendents with Jimmy Craig and DeGruy. If it is the same Ray Carter he's a perfect fit for the Hinds Catch-and-Release Program.

You may be right for now. That's why I can't wait for your generation to die off. Things will be so much better when we are running things.

Here's to hoping the idiots on both sides your age don't screw it up too much before then.

Its "us versus them" on BOTH sides. That's why this whole issue came up in the first place. Kingfish made a much better argument on behalf of JMAA than anybody in Jackson did. Jackson officials are more concerned with scoring points with their constituents than they are with having a logical discussion of the facts (which are heavily in JMAA's favor).

Don't screw it up too much? You are already there kiddo. The tax burden to service the national debt is going to be crushing and your generation just stupidly follows along right now, today, while Uncle Sam spends himself into total oblivion.

So go ahead and fool yourself that things are going to be better when you are running the show. You'll be dealing with the sort of insolvency that has led to very bad results and mass death throughout world history. The next generation is going to trash yours for doing nothing while you still had a chance.

It's so convenient that we don't have to worry about white folks claiming to be Christians imposing their will and beliefs on others as that's never happened!

And, we all know it's impossible for people to ever resolve their differences which is why we all hate the Japanese and Germans and still are prejudiced against the Jews, right?

And, we know that this us vs them mentality has never led to war or anything bad and war has always brought lasting peace.

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different outcomes!

It is sad when people who are supposed to have an education can only come up with one thing to answer everything. They should look for another word. Racist has just about been wore out.

Why doesn't the State want to takeover Tupelo's airport? Or the one on the Coast?

Get real. There is no expectation of privacy using listserve.

From posting ridiculous pictures of Judge Weill's alligator compensation hunting to copying/pasting messages from a listserve, at least we know that KF is a journalist when it's convenient and a tool for others when it's convenient for them.

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.
