Open thread

Trump came to town.  Johnny D went Jim Morrison on a blogger.  Football season is about to start but Ole Miss is in the news for the wrong reasons.  Meanwhile, President Lincoln's favorite song, Dixie, will no longer be played at Ole Miss football games.  Can anything be done to improve the stoplight cycles on Old Canton Road in Fondren? Is Fondren Public still going strong? Check out Goku TV channel on Youtube.  Best kept commentary secret in Jackson.  It's hip, it's urban, and it's raw.  Does Sweet Daddy's have the best gas station bbq in the Jackson area?  Consider this an open thread to comment on anything.

Good ole PC antics stirring up actual racism.

Sorry, I said ole. I hope I didn't offend anyone.

Sad to read the dismantling of so many traditions because a few scream rassssist.

Bye dixie! We will still sing the song loud and clear and welcome all races at our tent for food and beverage. Just no whites since they are the minority now and they need some good racist antics thrown their way. (Only kidding, but I am the minority now and can say what I want)

Out taxes for Jackson are about to be raised. Tony needs another credik card to go to nawlins and hotlanta to get a lap dance and get body painted. Wonder if the girls body paint him or do they just get the body paint. And if he does, what colors do you think he paints he self

Harbor Walk update??

Anonymous said...

Is it time to consider forming a new city comprised of Northeast Jackson? This happened with several suburbans in Atlanta. I wanted to believe that eventually the "majority" would eventually elect responsible leadership, but Yarber is another in a series of failures. Call the new city Fondren and draw the boundaries at Fortification and Northwest?

Burwell (Harbor Walk manager)has a parking lot South of the piers that would make any Jackson roadway feel like a relative.How District tolerates this in Madison County is a great mystery.

I graduated from Ole Miss in 1968 and I can truly say that I cannot believe what has happened at my beloved Alma Mater. We are now the Mississippi Bears, we don't play Dixie, and the flag is nowhere to be seen. The states of the Confederacy are being sanitized to the point that they are almost interchangeable with (God help us) Nebraska and New Jersey. The PC folks have achieved the impossible.....they have made Oxford and Ole Miss every bit as interesting Lubbock, Texas. I look for Square Books to change their name to A Book Store soon. We have allowed all this because we worship at the altar of athletic success and we make football coaches the arbiter of all things societal. Put me down as sickened by the whole mess.

1:39 I guess the District puts up with the $650,000 a year in rent they receive. Kay Pace isn't upset with the $150,000 a year in taxes the county gets. Why don't you get the District to cancel his lease so they can take care of all the mowing and figure out where all those people will park. Madison I am sure will see your point when they have to cut something because State doesn't pay taxes. You really are smart!

1:23 PM - you are correct. Starting in 2005 suburbs of Atlanta (paying Atlanta city taxes) that were experiencing basic infrastructure failure (water, sewer, roads, crime, etc) failing schools, city hall corruption scandals, tax hikes, etc began to leave Atlanta, and form their own incorporated cities/towns.

A 2013 WND article - "As a result of the unsavory politics in urban Atlanta, northern suburban communities acted to distance themselves. Beginning in 2005, many communities began the process of incorporating into cities.

Thus far, Milton, Sandy Springs, Brookhaven, Dunwoody, Chattahoochee Hills and Johns Creek have done so.

These cities, after breaking away politically from urban Atlanta, have become so successful that a libertarian think tank, the Reason Foundation, has featured Sandy Springs as a model of effective government…"

Could NEJ become its own city? I truly believe it could, and the current state of affairs at city hall certainly would suggest it is time. I suggest the Lefleur East Foundation do something besides planting flowers and thinking happy thoughts and actually contact city officials in Milton, Sandy Springs, Brookhaven, Dunwoody, Chattahoochee Hills and Johns Creek, Georgia. I bet you will find some willing assistance to help NEJ become Lefleur East or YOU NAME THE NEW CITY. If we don't do something our homes will be worth NOTHING, just like Detroit residents discovered much to their horror. NEJ still has some beautiful neighborhoods and wonderful people, but these neighborhoods will become another area of blight if the gross incompetency of the Jackson City Government continues. And after the elections…same old horses, different riders.

Did anyone ever figure out the name of the lady sitting behind Trump at the Jackson rally, whose facial expressions went viral?

Kansas Football Scoop said...

1:23- I've thought about that. I think the difference with new cities like Sandy Springs is they were unincorporated so they chose to incorporate which is much easier than leaving one city to form another (don't know if that's even possible). And even if you got through those hoops you'd still have to get through the Justice Department I imagine.

@1:52, you make all of your comments in such a negative tone, yet look how much things have gotten better between the races every time changes like these have been made! Now, once the moniker "Ole Miss" is gone (and you know it's coming), the University of Mississippi will finally be post-racial!

[/sarcasm off]

I think the only thing left to accomplish in the PC world that was Ole Miss is to remove all the columns from the buildings. After all columns in the South equal Antebellum which is the new PC math equals racism.

Just saying.

Absolutely agree with the general idea of no discrimination for any reason but hate to see tradition and history take the hit because a few snowflakes (probably from out of state) feel threatened.

@1:52. Well...bye. It's 2016 and you are whining over a damn song and a mascot. (BTW, the mascot is really for 8 year olds, not 65 year olds.). I'm sorry your feelings were hurt but finally crawling into the 20th F'in century really shouldn't cause you this much heartburn. If your allegiance to my school was predicated on a song and a mascot, we are better off without you, no matter how much money you will now claim to have given.

@7:47 PM. What? Allen Coon got a cob up your ass or something?

Seems to me the "alternative" mascot is near universally hated, the state flag is still the state flag. "Tradition Bad. Tradition BAD!" when it wasn't causing trouble except for a few special snowflakes since maybe 2010, remember the vote on that and how it wasn't honored? Hmm? But oh, that's right I forgot...

It's the , my mistake!

8:33 - what the OM faithful were waving wasn't the state flag. Keep your facts straight while you rant.

The thought of Northeast Jackson becoming it's on City is laughable. The majority of Northeast Jackson is just as bad as the remainder of the City. Take a look beyond your Eastover island (which is rapidly sinking). If northeast Jackson were to secede, it would be the same thing as the remainder of the City. You're about 15 years too late.

If ole miss is so racial, please refrain from attending. Go to MSU. Oh, but that's basically an agriculture school and some civil engineers. They won't tolerate your ass changing their history. Gator bait, referring to unruly slavery children being fed to the gators, racist. LSU tigers, named after a civil war brigade from Louisiana, racist. Now that's history. I welcome you to this century.

We're not racist, the past is the past. I'm the first poster on this blog and it was about Ole Miss. I know this will tear you PCer's up and confuse those who are actually racist (PC agenda people who can't formulate their own ideas) I'm in an interracial relationship and its not the first. Dated white, Puerto Rican, black. Get angry!! Ha! I'm white!

Would you have liked admiral akbar to be our mascot? Oh but admiral is a racist weird, right? Sure if you cry and whine anything can be turned rasssisst agaisnt any race.

Yeah..but NO..please take your PC, hypersensitive, opinion generated by the media, fake OM alum ass outta here.

This is 8:33 again, responding to 8:55, I was making reference to both.

But the state flag is another monster, because it was approved in a referendum, it's the taxpayer approved state flag and the former Ole Miss doesn't even have the balls, respect, tact, or dignity to respect the state or it's taxpayers.

But I do admit, seeing Confederate battle flags with Colonel Reb bantering around the sidelines would make a hell of a great show, shame I was too young to experience it.

Anonymous said...

I'm not sure what the point of 8:33 and 9:32 was, as English is apparently their 6th language, but assuming it was just poor education and not cultural differences, you two appear to be upset over a mascot. Please, go find another school to cheer for. Any alleged adult upset over which particular anthropomorphic character is cavorting on the sidelines is a person that any school can do without. If, however, you are both 8 years old and upset that something you've never seen live is still not on the sidelines, I'm sorry for your non loss and hope you get adopted soon.

Sometimes I wonder if it's State fans mourning the lost of Ole Miss's symbols.
It's all about football recruitment people and thus about the money!

If you are upset, be upset with those who disgraced the symbols of the Confederacy by using them as symbols of hatred and violence !

Racists exist and they are the ones , whatever their ethnic origin or religious zealotry, who deserve our scorn!

And, here's a news flash for you. IF you are criticizing an entire race or religion based on the bad behavior of some members of that race or religion rather than confining your criticism to the behavior, you ARE a racist!

The symbols of dixie are the standard bearing symbols for all racists that are out of the closet, from Illinois, to Washington, to Idaho, to California, even in New York, and in Maine.

They have can have that crap, it no longer represents Mississippi and its NEVER represented black southerners. Those symbols came to the forefront when black people were finally tired of being terrorized and decided to fight for their own civil rights.

Good riddance to all that mess

Ok I'll bite. Been reading some message boards about the NCAA investigation at OM. I will admit I am a little confused as to why they are blaming Saban, MSU or whoever for the renewed investigation. Doesn't that blame fall directly in the lap of Laremy Tunsil? I mean come on, the man said he took money from coaches, the texts were there to back it up and Freeze fled the building as if it were on fire. Do people not think that warrants a little investigating? Has OM officially confirmed that the money he was requesting came from the legit Opportunity Fund? If that is the case, then yes the investigation should cease. If not, then something stinks to high heaven. I just think we should all be honest and admit if what happened on draft night happened to any other school we would be calling for heads to roll and investigations. So please somebody, was the $ he was asking for legit?

As far as Dixie and the Flag, if the State of Mississippi had allowed nonwhites to enter UM when the university was founded, these never would have been traditions in the first place. I'm surprised it took this long to get rid of them, but on the other hand, Mississippi has always been slow and backwards.

I'm all for diversity in our state's 'private' schools; however, can somebody tell me why a JPD patrol car is at Madison Ridgeland Academy every afternoon at 4:20 picking up a black, male student who appears to be a junior or senior?

Anonymous said...

6:52 - its obviously because of the abundance of JPD officers we have here in Jackson. Just check out those that provide 'personal protection'. Not just the multitudes that 'guard' the Mayor (or I guess now its sometimes just guarding the door) but we are the only city I know of where our Public Works Director had her own personal security detail. MRA is not that far out of the jurisdiction of JPD so I am sure that officer was ready and able to chase down any crime in NE Jackson.

Anonymous said...

The JPD officer lives down 463. Drives his patrol car almost everyday to MRA and home.

Personally I think he's the most smart JPD officer they have. I'm sure he dislikes many of his fellow police commrades and working out in Jacktown.

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.
