Get your popcorn ready and hold onto your wallet.

KF, you forgot to add Harvey to your poll. You know he wants to run as he can't help himself.

I do not see how any of them could be any worse than Phil Bryant, Tate Reeves or Gunn. I am a Republican. Hopefully the winner will serve Jackson well.

I would give anything just to have two or three consecutive months without being bombarded by gibberish from the so called "entitled political class" that we are plagued with.

And Graham's slogan is "Elect a Crook"?

Will Longwitz for Mayor!

WHITES NEED NOT APPLY

I know the solution for Jackson---All the white folks need to pack up and move---not to Madison---not to Flowood but out of the State. I say let THEM have it. The state is almost like a third world country now. Name the city JACKFRICA !!!!!! We won another award yesterday---Jackson is the Number one city in the USA for cases of HIV---that really is a third word distinction.

I left the state after my family had been here for well over 150 years. This was 2 years ago and it is so sad what this state has become. I visited some friends in Jackson last week and it was spooky how much worse things has gotten in just 2 years. Good new is there is another world out there much different from the 3rd world of Jackson.

10:07, whites ARE leaving Jackson, and moving as far away from Mississippi as they can get. People who cannot afford private school tuition have not choice but to leave. People just starting out (those who have no relatives to give them down-payments for purchasing homes) generally find it easier, to find jobs in safe parts of the country, than to find safe-but-affordable apartments in Mississippi.

And people with wealth, or with above-average certifications and job skills, frequently cannot find viable reasons for staying, when so many other states offer them so much more.

Some people are stuck here, because of sub-par job skills. Some are stuck here, because their speech is just too 'Mississippi White Trash'. Some postpone leaving, "Until Mama dies", or "Until Mamaw dies". The years pass, and they find that it's too late to leave. They pay a heavy price for their familial loyalty.

TO 1:19, I wanted to get out but my 52 year business would not let me go---I can not express how sorry I am that I did not move my business to Nashville or Atlanta 20 years ago. Two of my children moved and are very successful and swear they will never move back to Mississippi. They don't even like to come back to visit because of the crime and the way they are treated at some retail stores and restaurants by angry black employees. I plead with the Governor to call out the National Guard to help stop this madness. There is going to be nothing left if we don't put a stop to it now. There is not a single block of Capitol Street that does not have several dilapidated buildings---this is the State Capitol. HELP !!!!!

Gentrification is coming to a Jackson near you!!!!!!

Jackson will become another Memphis, Detroit, or whatever slum lord town you pick because many of our brightest and most educated children leave for Dallas, Nashville, or wherever.

The major differences........race and economics....you'll never see
a front page article in the Dallas Morning news about race..it's only about money and who is making lots of it!!

We are a broke city and fast approaching a bankrupt state because we are the only state in the SE without a Fortune 500 company HQ here if you can believe that! Its true. Thanks Phil!

Graham: “If citizens allow me to be their next mayor then they are going to get a little Kane Ditto, a little of Dale Danks, a little of Harvey Johnson, a little of Frank Melton, all wrapped up into one big bow, that’s who I am going to be,”.

10:07, are you even for real??? And the rest of you encouraging him? Attitudes like yours are what is wrong with Jackson. If you live here, shut up and do something. If you don't, just shut up, please.

Is Kimberly Campbell running? She would be a great Mayor.

Akuno and the Kush gang push the same message @5:19. Please get up to speed.

Sure are a lot of people wanting to be the mayor of the #1 HIV city in the U.S.

You All Jess Be Hatin' said...

Sadly, the response from black people to most of the above posts is, "You all just hate blacks!" They truly do not see the problem or understand the roots of the problem. And the few who do, have no desire to solve the problem. You'd think some of them might eventually say, "We need to do something to stop this shit!"

But, nope. All they can talk about is 'haters'.

I see Detroit reject Kwame Kenyatta is still hanging on hoping that BabaHappyKushManJR will give him another city hall job. How coincidental that Kenyatta lives only a couple doors down from the JrChuckster behind the safe confines of a gated NEJackson neighborhood.

Free the Land and Stay the Hell Out of their private gated Kush enclave.

I'd vote for Sohcrates (think Bill and Ted). Anyone so interested in removing load after load of crap from Jackson is the man for me.

Truly a race to the bottom.

Vote for pocket-man and legend Graham! At least Hinds County would be rid of him. His corruption would fit in well at the city.

The goal of any person seeking public office in Jackson is now about one thing and one thing only. Running an employment/contracting office. Nothing else matters. Nothing. Say it with me, "Nothing else matters!"

The majority of the people I know who live outside the city of Jackson have a fairly high quality of life That said young people (under 40) would probably be well served to make a move to other states. To do so they need to have the skills and work ethic to succeed in a more competitive environment. Also be prepared to cope with more traffic, higher priced homes and taxes. There is an offset as many areas have excellent public schools that save the expense of private education. I'll probably move back (Rankin or Madison) as I can sell my current home for a significant profit buy an equivalent home for much less and reduce my property taxes be a few thousand.

During reconstruction there was a saying "the bottom rail is no on top". Problem is the damn fence is falling down. At some point the black community has got to realize that their leadership is using them for personal gain.

They don't give a shit 5:24.

The way to keep people pacified is to provide them with pacifiers.

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!!!
