Archie goes jughead.

The Jackson City Council recently changed the public comments format of its meetings in order to handle city business more quickly.  Public comments were taking up to 90 minutes before the council could address the rest of the agenda.  Council President Melvin Priester, Jr. made a sensible reform.  Comments that address specific agenda items are heard at the beginning of the meeting.  The rest of the comments are allowed after the agenda is concluded.  However, that didn't sit too well with one Mr. David Archie.  Mr. Archie raised hell with the council in this video.

Mr. Archie had a simple solution for council members sitting through hours of public comments: make serving on the city council a full-time job.  The city is broke.  The reserve is tapping out.  Roads are falling apart, pipes are busting.... you get the idea.  While everything implodes, this clown wants to spend more money and salaries and perks for councilmen.  This guy is perfect evidence that loudness does not equal intelligence.  Of course, the SS chimed in in support of Mr. Archie, the SS being Stamps & Stokes.

This is a perfect example of what is wrong with Jackson.  Everyone wants to yap, yap, yap, and showboat.  When they get done yapping, they want to yap some more.  Meanwhile, nothing gets done.  They don't care about the city.  They don't care about the city business. All they care about is yapping away while the city implodes.

The current law is really simple.  The business of the city council is the agenda for that particular meeting.  Citizens can address the city council about agenda items at the beginning of the meeting.  However, if all they want to do is turn their time at the podium into a general bitch session, then they can do so at the end of the meeting.  We elected them to handle our business, not hear them bitch on our time.  Some people just can't stand to be told they can't come first.

The city should film the public comments and sell the rights to some tv network to air much like The Andy Griffin show. We might as well make money from these inane skits.

I don't think a network would touch them. It isn't funny. It is sad. Not many people want to watch something that sad.

If certain people would leave race and egos out of The City of Jackson politics, the city could be the star of the state.

"Because my opinion is more important than actual city business."

It would benefit his argument if he could actually speak English.

Apparently to be a "community acticist and organizer", one must simply declare himself one.

Sure they would watch. Everyone enjoys watching a good dumpster fire.

He was there because he was getting paid to pimp the MAC lawsuit announcement.

A paraphrased statement from a goofy movie applies perfectly here:

"What Mr. Archie said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in his rambling, incoherent statement was he even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in that room is now dumber for having listened to it. May God have mercy on his soul."

As soon as I saw "Archie", I knew it would be a bunch of racist crap.

David Archie - followed by Iva Mae Pittman! What could be better? Two idiots spouting racist crap. That's what our city council needs to spend its time doing, listening to these circus clowns. To bad its going to take them five meetings in order to get to their 'fifteen minutes of fame' everyone is entitled to.

He has run for every election possible and lost each and every one.

I wish we could trade 1000 Syrian refugees with suicide vests for him.

This is no less than making our best and brightest public commenters sit at the back of the JATRAN bus. I cannot believe that this racist council would do such a thing.

Kingfish, love the new S & S: Stamps and Stokes. LOL. After years of observing David Archie, I am convinced that he is impaired. Like Enos Sanders, he has some viable ideas and some vocabulary to state these ideas, but does not have the power to decipher questions. He is part of the problem; not part of the solution. Other cities have impaired citizens but they don't routinely give them public forums. Is their no ability within the Democratic Party to weed out people who have no business running for office. Debates should have a threshold for participation. Yet over and over and over the Democrats certify many who should be certified elsewhere.

Today, my opinions of S & S were reinforced. The two of them create an environment that damages Jackson, its citizens, and its image. They influence votes of those who follow their lead and this damages the city. Nothing good can be accomplished with their brand of racism. It is a destructive force that we must defeat.

I've been at a loss to understand why our City Council doesn't operate like most City Councils.
If a citizen wants to be on the agenda, they make a request and name the topic they wish to address and/or the suggestion/solution they wish to propose. They are given a time limit for speaking and are allowed to submit supporting documents to the Council.
The current method is inefficient and chaotic. It is accomplishing nothing.

The last time I saw a community organizer and activist this dumb he went on to become and equally useless senator and is now securing his legacy as the most incompetent president in U.S. history. Mr. Archie may be our next governor. Fortunately he couldn't be any worse than the one we already have.

No surprise to see pushback from Stamps and Stokes to an otherwise sensible rule on the public comments segment. I've watched too many meetings where the public comments segment dragged on for nearly an hour because the same dozen or so Stokes/Stamps surrogates like Enoch Sanders show up every meeting to drone on incoherently about some personal matter that barely addresses a city issue and is unrelated to anything on the agenda. The regulars like Pittman ignore the 3 minute time limit and council lets them. Councilman Priester didn't eliminate public comment, he wisely re-implemented the rule that if yo ass isn't here to address something specific to the agenda, you need to wait until after the City has finished conducting its business, WHICH IS THE PURPOSE OF COUNCIL MEETINGS! IT'S NOT A PUBLIC FORUM! DUH! But that's not good enough for community organizers who love hearing the sound of their own voices and feel entitled to be heard.

And Stamps is just an ideological mirror image of Stokes. It not surprising to see his ignorant self backing Stokes and his gang of losers to let them run the meeting.

Our once great city has been taken over by the likes of S&S who have brought their non-tax paying brothers to the city with government sponsored rental units. Now there is a whole class of those who can't afford to get out and we have to put up with Stokes and his gang of dead beats while they destroy what was once a beautiful city with no tax base to repair it.

I requested a friend of mine who lives in another state to do a search on the Jackson city council and tell me what she thought. She thought it was a local comic strip put out for entertainment purposes only probably by the KKK. I tried to assure her that it was the true city council of our capital city. Couldn't convince her. Really I find it hard to believe anyone would vote for clowns like that.

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.

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.
