Stokes to JPS: "Do not Trick Us"

Jackson Ward 3 Councilman Kenneth Stokes gave the Jackson Public School Board hell over the proposed $65 million bond issue this morning at a press conference.  Watch for yourself.

Threw his gum on the ground. How Tacky! What a leader!

Even a broken clock is correct twice a day. Kennuf is correct on this issue although the bond issue should be defeated due to the fact that spending bond money on daily maintenance items is not good financial policy.

He's pissed because he isn't getting paid...

This is all Phil Bryant’s fault. He should have agreed to the takeover.

An on the spot news conference covered by an ABC affiliate where Kennuf tosses his ABC gum on the ground. Make no mistake, this wasn't done intentionally to defy the no child left behind movement when Slowdarius steps in that wad of gum, this was a clear Marxist signal of something about to go down!

There will be money left to take care of our "future" if the present administration and Board Members keep from pocketing their entitled portions.

The only sure way to make sure the money is not "misappropriated" is to not give it to them. Vote against the bond issue. That is the reason they are willing to pay $500,000.00 for a special election rather than piggyback other elections for virtually $0.00 cost. They know the turnout for a special election is virtually zero and only supporters (benefactors) will show up. This film answered a question I have always wondered. What uncouth person throws their gum on the ground?

I wish he would find an air conditioned place for his press releases or whatever he calls this. Was not only the gum spitting out nasty, his sweat rag is disgusting.

If Kennuf didn't act like a jackass all the time, maybe Ward 3 would get a little more positive attention.

I don't know the guy but he seems to have the body of fat Albert and the vocabulary of Buckwheat. Should he be charged with littering? That is nasty and to do it where the children can step on it.

Obviously he is pissed that he did not get his cut and is staging this so he will get paid to publicly support a yes vote. Watch and follow the money.

An embarrassment to Jackson, Hinds County and the State of Mississippi.

Governor Bryant NEVER considered a takeover of JPS. He pretended to give it a lot of thought but he knew that if he let JPS send some of their fine "YUTES" to Rankin and Madison schools (which they could under the takeover rules) then he could never go home again and his daughter's job with BOS in Madiison County would be on the line. An added kicker is that only God can fix JPS! This was a lose/lose/lose situation for the governor.

What about putting up flag poles at every school to fly the state flag?

We are paying people $14/hour to drum up support from the voting sheeple.

Would you pay $16 to cast a vote on school bond? $500,000 / 30,000 voters (maybe).

Clearly this vote should happen in November for free.

The JPS board should be terminated for incompetence immediately.

MDE, through the Board of Education, provided detailed factual findings recommending takeover of JPS. Under the statute the governor had what was tantamount to a ministerial duty to declare a state of emergency and allow MDE to implement the takeover. Bryant violated his oath of office to ignore this recommendation and instead allow the children of the district to be deprived of a good education.

@2:26, I agree with your suggestion about finding an air conditioned location but even that doesn't work for Kennuf. Last year I saw a media event that was held in City Hall and his sweat rag was ever present at that one too. As for the gum he needs to be charged with littering. I despise people who are too lazy to wrap it in a piece of paper and dispose of it properly. Just shows how much class Kennuf has. I think I'll ride by his house every time I need to get rid of a piece of chewing gum.

He is obviously "entitled" to litter.

...and so it goes. What half-wits like Kennuf cannot understand is that under the mindset of the present and past JPS administrations, there will NEVER be enough money to make this district effective. Mississippi simply does not spend that kind of money on education, and even if it did, it would not be enough. Kennuf is upset because after all the waste and unnecessary salaries built into every JPS budget there isn't enough left to waste on Lanier and his neighborhood schools. Bond issue money goes down the same rathole and produces the same result. Too bad Kennuf cannot grasp the concept of limited accountable government. Might help.

It’s so amusing to Trump supporters get offended by an obscure city councilman. It’s almost like theatrical ignorance doesn’t really offend them given the right, uh, “optics.”

Duffus wants to make sure he can get his

Can’t we find him a seat in Chicago
The take is much bigger there, but of

Mr. Stokes loves to be a confrontational figure (and quite large one at that) with media coverage. Unusual that his diatribe occurred during a day in the middle of the week rather than his usual Sunday tapings. Some of his interpretation of projects may have been misguided. A new school building to replace Poindexter and Barr that did not come to fruition was a point brought up. When one considers the total enrollment at each school combined, building a new facility did not make much sense. Poindexter was closed and the students were moved to Barr.

Mr. Stokes is demanding accountability from JPS, something his constituents in ward 3 should likewise demand of him.

Watching this makes me a believer in JPS, i believe it should be shut down.

Every time i see him talk. i’m more and more convinced he would do great in Washington.

@10:20
Chicago is only 25% black. Not likely he could win a seat there. Your assuming this bc of the crime rate. It's in a area smaller than Fondren. Southside.

Yep, ole Phil messed up on this one. As a business (white) owner in Jackson, do you think for one second that a black councilman will listen to me? Hell No! 65 million for a defunct school district where the admin can drive Mercedes, BMW’s and Jaguars while the rest of us level headed sensible thinking folks scratch our heads trying to figure out how in 5, 10, 15, and 20 YEARS we will be able to achieve a workforce with some sort of intelligence to train. Shut the Metrocenter down, convert it to one school and train what kids want to learn in a vocation they can at least become a productive member of society. Want to know what really chaps me? I hired 4 young men from a county bordering Hinds County and NONE of them could read a measuring tape! This shows you how far we have dumbed down our education. BUT WE GONE HAVE BLACK HISSSERY MUMF!

I am white. My council person is white. He does not respond to me or my neighbors. That is not a race issue. It is a caring issue. I would prefer a caring black council person.

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.
