The Color Red, Black, & White

Some people got mad when JJ placed a Swastika on a picture of Alice Walker back in 2012 after she barred the sale of her books in Israel.  The Kingfish should have been tougher on Ms. Walker.  The Color Purple author penned this rather anti-Semitic "poem" two years ago.    The disjointed, poorly written poem rambles about Israel for awhile until it takes a disturbing turn that would make the Grand Mufti proud as he returned from Berlin in 1942.

MCPP: The Hidden Costs of Medicaid Expansion

Medicaid expansion remains deeply unpopular with Mississippi voters, as recently released polling from Mason-Dixon finds and as Tuesday’s Republican primary results certainly did not dispel.

This is perhaps surprising, given that many people don’t know much about Medicaid. This lack of knowledge has allowed politicians and others to try to sell Medicaid expansion as a cure all for many of Mississippi’s problems. To set the record straight, Medicaid is not a very good parachute for rural hospitals. It’s also not a very good way to boost the state’s economy. Medicaid is not even going to improve health care outcomes for the working poor. Medicaid expansion is going to be far more expensive than anyone predicts. It is also going to squeeze out funding for other priorities, like K-12 education and roads.

Guest Column: Delta Deserves Real Solutions, not False Hopes of Yazoo Pumps

Communities in Mississippi’s South Delta deserve real solutions for reducing flood damages, not false hope pinned to the Yazoo Backwater Pumps.

The Army Corps of Engineers’ own analyses make the case against the Pumps. In March, the Corps admitted under the best-case scenario, only 32 percent of the backwater area would receive any flooding relief with the Pumps. All lands at or below the 92.3-foot elevation, or 68 percent of the backwater area, would continue to flood even with the Pumps in place – so just how many homes and farm fields would truly be flood-free?

MPACT Open Enrollment Begins Soon

The Mississippi Prepaid Affordable College Tuition (MPACT) program will re-open to enrollment for 2019-20 on September 1. MPACT helps to guard against the rise in the cost of tuition by essentially locking in the costs for your child’s future enrollment. You can purchase plans for community colleges, four-year universities, or even a combination of both. And, the benefits can be used at public or private schools, in-state or out-of-state.

College Savings Mississippi also offers flexible payment options to make saving for your child’s education through MPACT affordable for all budgets. And, the tax advantages, including payments that may be deductible for State income tax and earnings that may be exempt from federal and State income taxes – help to stretch your savings dollar!

Enrollment is available for newborns all year long, but if you have an older child or grandchild and are considering opening an account, check out my website for more information today and be ready to enroll on September 1!

State Treasurer Lynn Fitch has accepted nearly $160,000 from plaintiffs’ attorneys in a bid for the Republican nomination. This is money from the very members of the bar who have profited off our state’s legal system, chasing high-dollar settlements against businesses in our state for years. And in most cases, as can be seen on the accompanying chart, she is accepting contributions from the very plaintiffs’ lawyers who contributed to Jim Hood’s campaigns for the four terms he was in office.

Mark Baker Wants to Make Jackson Safe

This post is a paid advertisement. 

I care about Mississippi, and I care about Jackson, our capital city. As a longtime resident of Rankin County, I also care about the metro Jackson area and believe we are all in this together. No matter how far out you drive or how high the wall is around your neighborhood, crime in Jackson is going to have negative consequences and spillover effects in neighboring cities. That is why as your next attorney general I am committed to helping turn our capital city around. Care and commitment, however, are not going to be enough. We are going to need a plan. Above all, we are going to have to make Jackson a safe place to live, shop, dine and do business.
