The Facebooks visit Mississippi

Mr. Facebook himself visited Mississippi this week as he and his wife tour America.  Below are some posts of his excursion to the Magnolia state. 









We drove through Mississippi today and stopped at the Ground Zero Blues Club in Clarksdale, where the blues were born. We met a blues artist who made all his own guitars and drove trucks to make a living. Looking forward to seeing more of Mississippi tomorrow.

Converts to Judaism after long being an atheist. Decides to visit all 50 states. What could he possibly be up to?!?

Great future in politics. Clearly, there's huge pent up demand for coastal tech oligarchs to lead us. Don't listen to those other billionaires -- there's no need to worry about bunkers and weapons for when robots give us 50% unemployment and the pitchforks come out.

He's never lived here but opines that the history is still fresh? Good grief!

Joel Bomgar times several million millions. Political aspirations.

Start a software company. Make money. You are qualified to fix the world.

At least he is touring areas outside of tea party hot dog roasts.

As much money as this cat has made me, he can opine whatever he wants...waiting on the 3 for 1 split to buy more!

I'm liking the graffiti above that black guys hat in the third picture. "Fuck all y'all"
Pretty much sums up my feelings about the guy that sells folk's information for profit.

I know a lot of people who have or achieved the goal of visiting all 50 states. None of them are running for President.
I know many people who questioned their family religion in their youth and who eventually embraced it.
And, I thought one of our national notions is that even a kid born in a log cabin could grow up to be President. If he thinks he might try, so what?
And, while I too worry about the loss of privacy in this country, I don't see that as all that different than making your money by selling products that make false claims, or hiding dangers in your products or ruining people's health or diminishing property values through toxic pollution. Or, helping a dictator's country get oil rights in international waters.
So, I suspect that if Mr. Zuckerberg was at CPAC, y'all would be singing his praises.
But, carry on...I enjoy hypocrisy with my coffee.

As a way of saying "welcome", someone get this boy a pig ear sammich.

He's got the requisite Asian wife, typical of all Cali techies.

he is responsible for the current shitty state of affairs in this country. Social media has made the general public depressed and angry. There are several studies that prove this fact. Billionaire tech types like himself that come into all this money quickly only to become self deluded that what they think really matters make me want to puke.

Think of this historic visit as a "Teachable Moment". You know how the parents of little girls, in Mississippi, encourage their daughters to be special little princesses? They encourage skills like cheerleading, and buy lots of glitter-princess dolls for their little girls? Know how they encourage fantasies of extravagant pageant-like weddings, and allow girls to grow up with the notion (probably originating in Ireland) that men are stupid, wayward dog-creatures, perpetually in need of control and correction and punishment by women?

Ever read one of Mississippi Magazine's wedding issues, and notice how the brides are regarded as Saint/Princess/Star figures, while the grooms are regarded, basically, as running jokes?

Well, continue raising your daughters to be disdainful, controlling, condescending, trivial, extravagant, innumerate (math-illiterate), loud-mouthed, teasing centers of attention. Keep right on doing that! And the most desirable males, the ones with great bodies, big brains, big incomes, and big units, WILL KEEP RIGHT ON MARRYING ASIAN WOMEN, who're NOTHING LIKE their mothers and sisters, and NOTHING LIKE the girls who treated them like dirt, in high school. That's because the smarter guys will continue seeing typical American women (and Southern women, in-particular) as being nothing but trouble.

If that's who I think it is, she's gloating, not complaining.

Why didn't he and his Asian babe visit the Confederate Dead in Vicksburg? Whoever toured them around must have known where THOSE bodies are. He might have opined about the 'fresh history' of those young men.

Anonymous said...

How many Confederate dead in Vicksburg? I heard it was just 2.

Anonymous said...

Why would he waste his time visiting the losers.

Anonymous said...

He was visiting the national cemetery and it is correct, there are only 2 Confederate dead buried there and they were buried there by mistake. However, if he had gone to Cedar Hill Cemetery there are 5,000 Confederate dead buried there in a section known as Soldier's Rest.

It's a rumor that two Confederates are buried in the National Cemetery at Vicksburg. Has never been any proof of that. It is not, however, a rumor that it was and is against the law for Confederates to be buried in any of the so called 'national military parks', land confiscated in most cases by the government.

Soldiers' Rest at the Vicksburg City Cemetery on Sky Farm Road is a beautiful remembrance that is visited by thousands. The Confederate camel is also buried there.

Let's not have the usual disrespect offered by assholes who have no appreciation for accurate history or the deceased on either side of Lincoln's War.

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!!!
