'Rankin County Safe Room'?

If you're dog qualifies to compete in an AKC dog show, then it is an inbred, freak of nature that will die at a very early age. And you likely paid to much for it in an attempt to keep up with the jones'. (My muts out hunt every pure bred lab they've ever been placed against.)

That's correct 12:28, rankin county has a community storm shelter for citizens to seek protection from tornadoes, hurricanes, and many other natural disasters. They use this space, on occasion, as an event venue to offset cost. Hinds county doesn't because.....well, you know.

12:49 sounds like they wouldn't let you enter your mutts in the dog show. I have seen a few that thought they had pure bred dogs until they tried to enter them in a show. CKC does not cut it.

Maybe so, 2:58, but he's still right that mutts are generally healthier, smarter animals than purebreds. When you confine breeding to an artificially small population --whether its dogs or some remote aboriginal tribe-- you sacrifice a lot of ability to screen out bad, recessive genes.

The safe room is one of many that FEMA built across the south, and I understand as far as Olive Branch.. Only about 4 million each and Broke Brandon only had to put up about $125,000, what a deal, This is the only time I have heard about it being used but we have to maintain it. I live about 14 miles from it but if we have a Tornado and I can outrun the Sucka, I will be safe, thanks to the Gubmint. A Storm like Katrina is 50 to 100 yrs away but by then I will have my own 6 x 8 shelter. Is this a good country or what.

I've had mutts and I've had purebreds. I loved each and every one of them and treated them well. I have spent a ton of money keeping all of them healthy. In return they showed me unconditional love. In my humble opinion one is no better than the other. "Money can buy a mighty fine dog, but only love can make him wag his tail." Would you love a child any less just because his genes are not perfect? I hope not!

Hey 12:49 I'd like to see how your mutt places against a Chesapeake. Hahahaha!!!!!! Good luck!

Lest anyone mistakenly believe that 7:40 knows what the hell he/she is talking about, the Rankin County Safe Room is a county-owned facility that was constructed with 95% federal dollars and 5% county dollars. The City of Brandon had NOTHING to do with this project and put no $ in this project. The county's financial contribution for construction was around $300,000 (out of a total construction cost of around $3.25 million), with a portion of the county funds providing upgrades to the facility over what the feds would allow. The Rankin County Sheriff staffs and oversees the operation of the facility. While the safe room is open to any citizen during inclement weather, one of its primary function is to provide a safe place to shelter for users of the Rankin County Multi-Purpose Pavilion which is located immediately adjacent to the safe room. Of course, dumbasses who live 14 miles away are always welcome.

12:49 should go to the dog show tomorrow. He is apt to see one or two that would affect him more deeply than standing on the rim of the Grand Canyon.

Can ANYBODY comprehend the basic fact that federal money is still your money???

The government does not have any money that it does not take from YOU, this is the most basic of concepts and I still don't understand why people can't get their heads around it.

Homeland Security "federal" money = your money, FEMA "federal" money = your money, all of the money that MHP stole (and MS taxpayers will have to pay back) = your money x2.

Just because Mississippi receives disproportionately more than it should does not make it a good deal, especially for folks who actually write a check to the IRS and MS DOR every quarter ------ LIKE ME.

9:09, you seem to forget, not that many people in Ms. pays taxes. That is the one big reason people think the govt. has their own money tree. Over half of the people in Ms. are free loaders. They do not pay taxes, they just soak up money other people pay in.
It will be very hard for these people to understand your point.

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.
