Vote Today! That Means You!

Consider this post to be the thread for discussing all of Tuesday's elections.  Who will make the runoff to replace Gregg Harper? Will Omeria Scott upset David Baria? Do people even care about these races?   Will the losers have to leave town? Talk about it all in the comments.  Consider this the election day thread.   Have fun.

Who really cares except the special interests propping up the puppets? They’re all the same. I’m just ready for my phone to quit ringing!

I heard Lamar Adams is running for the senate seat as a write in candidate.

If you live in Greenwood, Greenville or McComb and subscribe to the daily newspapers there, you'll have to wait until your mail carrier brings it to you on Wednesday. Wyatt Emmerich's publishing company announced Friday that it is ending home delivery by carrier and going to mail delivery for subscribers in all three towns. Anyone that thinks the post office won't screw this up is say nothing of those days when there's an issue with the press and they miss the post office's deadline.

This comes on the heels of an earlier announcement several weeks that saw all three papers stop publishing a Monday edition. Since there's no mail delivery on Sunday, the papers will print a Saturday edition that is supposed to be delivered via mail the same day. That means no more Sunday papers.

And that follows on the heels of a 25% price increase if you buy your paper from a vending machine.

These three papers are in their death throes. If they exist a year from now, it will be online only.

Which one is Americans For Prosperity supporting?

I think that the winners on our side (D) will be Rep. Evans and Rep. Scott (although she may well be in a run-off election).

"These three papers are in their death throes. If they exist a year from now, it will be online only."

You are correct. Truly believe that all the newspapers want to eventually be online only. Their cost of production and delivery will be cut tremendously. This is especially true of the CL. I just assume that they go away completely.

I live in the Jacksun area. If I’m fed up with Trump’s lack of honesty and character and want to register my protest, who should I vote for?

Friday's monthly employment report was great news for anyone looking for a job in America – unless you happen to be a Democrat running for Congress.
Most troubling for Democrats is that the biggest job gainers have been groups that have historically suffered from stubbornly high levels of unemployment, including younger workers, black workers and so-called marginally attached workers, ...
And among blacks — whom Trump famously claimed had "nothing to lose" by voting for him in the 2016 election — the jobless rate last month fell to 5.9 percent, a full percentage point drop in just two months. That puts the jobless rate for blacks more than a full point lower than the last trough in April 2000 when it hit 7.0 percent.

9:55 am: The recovery began with President Obama and is now facing the headwind of rising rates and potential inflation as tax cuts without corresponding spending cuts and infrastructure spending bring back inflationary pressures.

9:55 Time to adjust your meds again.....

A year of UNDOING the Obama damage is why the economy is starting to recover.

Except for the Third District, turnout is going to suck on Tuesday. I live in the Second Congressional. Bennie Thompson does not have an opponent and I'm not driving nine miles to the precinct just to vote for Wicker over whoever that nobody is that's running against him. I doubt turnout will crack 25 percent statewide.

Without fail the Obama cultists always want it both ways.

Thank goodness for the lower black unemployment rate. It is really helping to detour the crime and improve the economic conditions here in Jackson and other urban cities! I am certain the administrative assistant in the Mayor’s office in downtown Jackson is having a difficult time scheduling meetings for the mayor with all the interested parties wanting to bring jobs to Jackson! All this talk about the lowering of the unemployment rate for blacks is meaningless as it relates to the struggles of most larger urban cities which comprise large segments of blacks. You can get the unemployment rate down to zero and you will still need to come up with a complex overall strategy (education, transportation, infrastructure, crime, health care, urban job investment, etc.) to really improve the conditions of most of these cities.

Why are you goobers discussing Obama when this thread is clearly about current elections?

Greg Brand has mailed out photos of Wicker holding up the state flag in support of The Confederacy. Drive that nine miles!

When the Trump administration finally implodes from his many lies, it will take a man of great integrity and honor like Barack Obama to bring this nation back together again. It will happen. The very man Trump has sought to destroy will be needed to help bring the nation back together and back to its senses and sense of honor.

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!!!
