So, how about all that crime in Jackson?

And ain't Madison and Ole Miss great!

Any updates on the new pothole fixing process they were using in Jackson? Have seen the machine parked up in Gluckstadt. Did they stop using it?

The lottery related hysteria in Nonpartisanville during the special session was funnier than heck. You could almost hear Ganuchump quietly praying to himself "Please God, let them fail, let them fail, let the Republicans fail".

Looks like Megapatch LLC is back in good standing as of August 7, 2018 per the SOS website. The new registered agent seems to be a land and title attorney in Jackson and the organizer from Butler Snow.

I’m looking at a 20 year old house with that fake stucco on it?

Any ideas?

Is it good? Bad?

When are we going to hold JPD ccounttable for all the illicit crime that can be stopped.There are so many burglaries in the new district and Countyline Rd area. Perhaps some unmarked units will suffice. Them boys and gals need to strike..

I want to propose The Stokes Twins be the new Directors of the Jackson Zoo. Both have stated that the Zoo is in a wonderful location.

Still, no word on whether or not, if we're participating in the MegaMillions and Powerball pots, posted the question to some legislators and never got a response.

But wants the point of starting a lottery, if we are not going to participate in those two systems?

It's safe to assume we will, but then again, this is Mississippi

Quite a feat when reporting @ MT
Reads with more overt bias than @ JFP.
MT has worst bang-for-buck in

An absolute joke.

What makes the Jackson Mazda and Mitsubishi dealerships think that 70's era weekend dragstrip radio advertising tactics will entice people to buy cars?

As for stucco question....

First, make sure your realtor is working for YOU and not the seller.

Inspection of stucco typically requires specialized inspector - not part of regular home inspection.

There are different types of stucco. Research.

Time to elect a State Auditor with balls. I’ve worked here for years and have never seen an Auditor who can’t make a decision, scared of his shadow and puts being elected a priority over enforcing state law.

OK, religion jokes for Friday!

Q: What do you call a sleepwalking priest?
A: A roamin' Catholic.

Q: How do you keep a Baptist from drinking at your party?
A: Invite two of them.

A Buddhist monk walks up to a hot dog stand and says, "Make me one with everything."

A Mormon checks into a hotel. He looks at the clerk and says, "I sincerely hope the porn is disabled." The clerk looks back and says, "It's regular porn, sicko!"

There were these two preachers in a town who would ride their bikes to church on Sunday and would pass each other on the way. One Sunday, one of the preachers was on foot. The other preacher asked him what happened to his bicycle.

"I'm so mad!" he said. "Someone in my congregation stole my bicycle and I don't know who did it."

The first preacher said, "Well, then here's what you do. Today you need to preach a sermon on the Ten Commandments, and when you get to 'Thou Shalt Not Steal', the one who took your bicycle will feel so guilty that he'll confess and return it. The second preacher thought that was a fine idea and went along his way.

Next Sunday, both preachers were on their bicycles and they stopped to speak. The first preacher said, "Well, I see you got your bike back, Rev. Did you do what I said?"

The second preacher said, "I did indeed! I got up there and started going through the Commandments, and when I got to 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery', I remembered where I left my bicycle."

I have a 2016 Mercedes Benz Thor 25 foot Four Winds RV. The Camper sits on a MB sprinter 3.0 V6 Tubro diesel 188 HP. I only paid $ 56,000.00 used. MB dealers hate to work on these type of campers. RV depreciate at a unbeliveable
rate.A new dodge RAM truck nicely equipped run $60,000.00 easily. So,
I bet Mr. Rhodes got a good deal on his RV. I've never heard of a RV with a Mercedes Benz engine top out at $ 300,000.00.

In the vein of 12:35...

A Rabbi and Priest are sitting together on an airplane and they start chatting about religion, each one comparing their religion. Jesus this and Moses that... we eat Matzoh, and we have the wafer... Christmas and Hannukah and so on.

After a while of politely chatting, the Priest turns to the Rabbi and asks: "So tell me Rabbi... what is the single worst thing that you can do in your religion?” "Well, for us Jews" answers the Rabbi "the single worst thing we can do is eat pork." "Ah, I see" answers the Priest, before hesitating and turning to the Rabbi with a quizzical looks in his eyes "And tell me Rabbi, have you ever tasted pork?" The Rabbi looks around to make sure no one is hearing and answers: "Well, there was this one time. I was visiting the state fair and I saw this huge pan of Bacon, and I just couldn't resist..." The Priest looks at the Rabbi with understanding and asks “So how was it?” “Pretty good” answers the Rabbi.

The Rabbi then turns his head to the Priest, cocks and eyebrow and asks "And what about for you guys?" The Priest thinks a moment before answering "Well... for us men of the cloth, really the worst thing we can do is to lay with a woman." Suddenly the Rabbi's eyes pique with curiosity "And did you ever...?" “There was this one time” admits the Priest “where there was this beautiful nun, and I just couldn't resist..."

The Rabbi smiles with great understanding, looks at the Priest in the eye and says "It's a hell of a lot better than pork, isn't it?"

Can you believe Trump & Tater, both are trying to say it ain't so, Trump's on tape telling Lester Holt he fired Comey, because of that Russa Thing. The CL has the emails and correspondence from Tater's staff pressuring folks about Tater Lane.
How can our Representatives just stand by and let them get away with proven Lies.
When will true conservative christans stand up and say this is wrong.

Listened to Dr. Laura's show this morning. She must be suffering from mouth fatigue cause she had a guest host. It's almost comical to listen to to these guys try to rationalize and ultimately excuse Trump's boorish behavior. So what? The guys an ass. He's not the first ass to make good. Stop trying to honey coat a POS. Makes you look stupid. Walking behind a guy who farts all the time with a fan. Hell, let him fart.

We need to rewrite the constitution of Mississippi.
The one we're working with now is causing us to be last in most things. To be fair, it's one of the things, as there a lot of things, but this is a big thing.

I think I'm right.

Arg the I-55 project from Byram to Jackson - Northbound - 5 years of dealing with it for the bottleneck to move up a 1/4 mile.

Left lane goes I-20 west
Middle lane = good lane
Right lane plays out once it gets at I-20

Why won't they build a tunnel from Savannah street to Pearl and also Fornication street?

We need to thank the Clarion-Ledger for reporting on the TaterGate Road to Nowhere. It enabled Feel and Feel to get Tater to the bargaining table. TaterGate approved of Feel Gunn's proposals that passed the House the first week of session. The 5 days only cost us $200,000.

The criticism of Trump has me amazed. To those who don’t like him, how would our state of affairs be if HRC and the First Man be? And I’m referring to the surrogate President, Bill. No politician has ever said hell no to North Korea or Iran. We haven’t have a booming economy in almost 50 years. Think about it. Look what your politicians of both parties have NOT done for the USA and look at what both parties in our State leadership have NOT done. We have 200 or so wealthy families that control this state and tell our so called leaders what to do. We have virtually no Vocational or Technical training in our state and it is deplorable.....but we sure have some good high school football. I like the new commercial wif da kids trynna talk about da en zone. That’s all that matters! Point well taken. I’m pissed off at the $65 million dollar bond referendum that passed. I own property in Jackson. It can’t even be sold. No need to explain. But they gone get some repairs. Who the hell is going to hold them accountable if they use those funds for items they are not stipulated for? The Zoo lady will be hung for what she did, and she kept telling people that it ain’t working! You have to feed the animals and pay the employees. If she had shut it down she would have been called a racist. She had a love and respect for those animals and the employees so she did what she had to do. I say close it and spend no more money. I’m final let’s elect Hillary and see how the liberal side will piss all over themselves with joy! The others that work will eek out a living and survive. Hell, we did with Obama. I guess high unemployment is ok with most.

You say close the zoo and spend no more money on it? OK - I agree. But as to your defense of Poff, who illegally spent my tax dollars, she could have said exactly the same thing a year or so ago BEFORE she broke the law,and stOle thus money.

Her reasons, in your opinion, justify the illegal actions. Bullshit. Just like her not paying the employee benefits? Would you feel that way if your family member worked there and when a medical crisis arose was stuck with a massive medical bill because she decided 'feeding the animals' - or any of the other things she spent money on was more important than paying the medical insurance? Or making the federal tax payment of your withholding taxes?

No, she had options. Just as the zoo had options when the city bailed them out with the recent quarter million dollars. Check and see who was first in line for that money along with your hallowed Ms Poff.

Since trump has been in office I've received only a 1.75% raise and a 1.75% raise.

The national average is 2.5% wage increase since Trump has been in office.

When will I get my 4.2% raise?

I want a President who isn't spending so damn much time tweeting, and campaigning for 2020 and golfing ( especially since he gets tax money to pay for those who have to go with him) and who makes up stuff. I want him working.

I'm also more than sick of the hypocrisy of those who whine about how badly Trump is criticized and how awful it is to subject a President to such ridicule and don't remember the venom they spewed on Obama and his family for 8 years. I got the emails and saw the posts and read the comments here.

And, I would remind everyone of the hypocrisy of supporting a special prosecutor who came up with very few guilty pleas or convictions in 5 years when compared to one year of Mueller's plea and conviction rate in 1 year.

Y'all need to understand that you can't save your business with laundered money from criminals, be they drug dealers the mafia or Russia's oligarchs or second rate crooks like Cohen, without committing a crime and without those people becoming a threat to you.

And, if Obama and/or Clinton committed crimes, the GOP Senate and Congress must be dumber than a box of rocks if they spent all that time and money in investigations and couldn't find a damn bit of evidence to do a damn thing. Or do y'all really believe there were no Republicans in the entire intelligence and law enforcement or financial sectors who would blow the whistle? You think the Kochs or Ailes couldn't find those people if they existed?

It sure hasn't been hard for Avenatti with less money and resources and authority to find " those people" and flush them out.

The blind loyalty to Trump and gullibility is amazing. If he strangles Melania, I expect you all to excuse it by saying she provoked him and wasn't loyal enough.

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.

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.
