Bully, Bully

Correction: Public Notice published three weeks ago. 

The Board of Dental Examiners, the Grand Poobahs who regulate the dental profession in Mississippi, are holding a work session on a Saturday. You read that correctly.  The Board if going to discuss making changes to several regulations but will do so on the weekend.    Meanwhile, check out how the Board treats dentists who dare to come before the Board and say their peace.

Meet Dr. Trice Sumner.  She is President of the Mississippi Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists.  The Board President, Dr. Frank Conway of Bay St. Louis, sternly shut her down when she began to read a prepared statement.  Such reading is common practice at most agency hearings and comment periods.  This is probably the most rude an Agency official or Board President has been to a guest the Kingfish has witnessed - excluding a certain Ward 3 City Councilman in Jackson, of course.  Dr. Conway did the same thing to another doctor who attempted to speak to the Board.

Oh yes, here is the public notice for the Saturday meeting.

Seemed like a pretty common exchange to me. Welcome to the United States of Trump, where being a pompous ass moves you up the ladder.

Nothing to do with the "age of Trump"....sheesh. This is just typical Missippi'being Missippi'. There's ZERO oversight of those providing oversight to important, professional what do you get? Last place in every performance category in the nation that matters.....but assholes like Conway repeatedly continue on throughout the state. Pissants with power describes most of the hicks and hacks who wouldn't make it for a second 50 miles outside their Missippi' church, hamlet, or high school. Governors, senators, judges, and legislators see this stuff all the time and just smile. They're all intoxicated with the "power" and "prestige" they wouldn't have EVER considered achieving while growing up in towns like Moorhead, New Houlka, Vicksburg, Florence, Holly Springs, Sandersville, etc. etc. etc. All of them - small town idiots who have degrees and local connections, but not a bone in their spinal column. All of them worthless and weak, but getting fat off of taypaying Mississippians, while the state crumbles under its racist flag.....but hey, they still love taking all that Yankee federal money. Pathetic.

Frank Conway is a complete ass. If it were me in her shoes I would have embarrassed the hell out of him. Good thing he's a dentist's and not a real doctor, we have a decent board.

His conduct is inappropriate, but she should have made her statement a part of the record. He apparently talked to her about what she wanted to say in public, and didn't want her airing the issue further. Not cool on his part, but easy solution is putting statement in the record of proceedings and going from there.

Ever read a book about Soviet Comissars and Mao's Red Guard? Power corrupts in any system.

I lived in the suburbs of Seattle and also New Haven CT for a combined 15 years. Same shit, different accent. None of this is exclusive to Mississippi. You see the exact same pissant power trips in New England. Get off your high horse.

"We gonna take care of what the board gonna take care of".

Self important tool?? Hard to say without knowing all the background. It really doesn't surprise me though when a board of anything works against its members.

The only exception is the Bar Association. Those clowns will do anything in their power to keep you from filing a complaint against a shady attorney.

Anonymous said...

FYI many attorneys are disbarred, suspended and sanctioned each and every year. Now, name the lying insurance agents, stockbrokers, bankers, car dealers who have been subjected to these punishments and discipline. Lawyers, hands down, are the MOST scrutinized and disciplined.I will give you that members of certain firms are excluded. We all know who they are...the ones who represent the insurance agents, stockbrokers, bankers and car dealers referred to "hereinabove".

Some board members practice 5 days a week (horror) and don't wish to shut down practices (income) for a board meeting.

Dude has a website that looks like he used Mindspring build your own page templates, and they do botox injections along with dental work. Holy crap, if he didn't get into dental school he'd be running a used car lot in Bay St. Louis.

Rod Knox said...

the expression "letting a fox guard the hen house" comes to mind here. In Mississippi the Hospital Association promotes hospitals, the Insurance Commissioner promotes insurance companies, the Bar promotes lawyers, etc, etc., etc, and no where in there is the public promoted or protected. Of course for those who have connections special considerations are given.

Are you people sure this isn't Dr. Frank CONAWAY? Not Conway.

@ 4:27, you obviously don’t do securities work if you think lawyers are more scrutinized than stockbrokers.

Anonymous said...

4:27 - Can you define "Many" and provide your source?

Here is what the MS Bar has to say about finding out who has been disciplined; So I wonder what your source is.

Disciplinary History
An attorney may request a disciplinary history letter at any time by completing the Request for Disciplinary History Form. The form must be signed by the requesting attorney in order for the request to be processed. The attorney may request the Disciplinary History Letter be sent to any entity of his choosing. The request form operates as a release of confidentiality as to that entity.

The public may contact the Office of General Counsel at any time to request information about a Mississippi attorney's current status and whether the attorney has received any public discipline (Public Reprimand, Suspension or Disbarment). You may contact the Office of General Counsel at 601-948-0568 or

The Office of General Counsel cannot release any information about an attorney other than the attorney's current status with the Bar and whether the attorney has received public discipline without a signed release from the attorney.

So much for a "public" hearing, it's the new "Board" reading. Glad to have you there KF, it's good to see some local media broadcasting the self-puffery of tin tyrants.

Nice try, I am not from Mississippi so I can chime with an outsider's perspective as well. I can say with certainty, this place is 50th and STAYS in that spot for a reason. From the politics to the regressive mindset, complacency, and futility. It's bad in other places, but it is out of control here.

3:11 pm You are not the first male in history to corrupt ancient religious texts by ignoring context in favor for you own self interest. ISIS and the Tailban are doing the same.

You, like the ISIS and the Taliban, ignore the how ignorance and superstition influenced beliefs and the writings in 58-65 AD.

You ignore context and contradictory passages and only suggest literal interpretation when it suits you just like they do as well.

If you have to oppress someone else or be dishonest to gain power or success or love and sex, you really are a sorry excuse for a human.

I feel sorry for you and all those like you . With earned respect and success comes love, self-confidence , peace of mind and willing partners in life's journey.

Not all men are equal, either intellectually or physically. Athletics provide numerous examples to prove that fact. The logical fallacy that human beings are somehow equal is the first seeds of leftist mental disease.

You remind me of the common sight of a hysterical adult woman in tears because she has lost control of her emotions. The inability to control emotions is a trait of lesser men but it is nearly unanimously common in every woman and child. That is a fact. If you think a fact is oppressing someone then you are mentally ill.

The Overton window may have moved further to the left since the scriptures where written, but the truth of the Word or God never changes.

He is a Botox practitioner. Look at his web page. He is an asshole. Look at the video. Conclusion? He should be removed.

Anonymous said...

The leftist idea that we are all equal when in reality no 2 people can truly be equal only serves to promote a government that panders for votes and promises to level the playing field. And since it is nearly impossible to level the playing field up, the results are typically that the bar gets set lower.

Fast forward to today. Now the leftists claim people will suffer because the government doesn't have the budget to provide the handouts that are used to bribe a voter base. How can you both claim equality for all and also admit that people are going to starve u less they are provided for.
Leftists seem to be mentally ill or somehow immune to Cognitive Dissonance

Anonymous said...

Leftists cope with cognitive dissonance by retreating into childish fantasy worlds. That is why you commonly see protestors comparing real life people and events to Harry Potter. It's a Peter Pan situation where 30-40 year olds don't know how to reason like adults. The real world is too hard so they never want to leave Never Never Land.

He shuts her down for asking that a regulation that protects children be enforced! The regulation is on the books but he is refusing to enforce it. The question is WHY. And why does he shut her down when she dares to ask?

a person with legal standing should consider filing a complaint for injunction in the Chancery Court of Hinds County to order the Board to abide by the Open Meetings Act and its rules regarding public comment

Anonymous said...

@ 3:55 PM

You might want to read the Open Meetings Act before hauling off and spending the money to file a complaint in Hinds Chancery. You'll find nothing in the Act that requires a board to allow for public comment or ask questions.

You can take that up with your local Legislator.

Another fine example of “hit-piece” clickbait journalism. This video was a planned “gotcha” moment between the Doctor and the “reporter”. The Doctor had briefed her position to the board several times during the months preceding this meeting. The board has numerous issues to deal with and limited time to discuss all of the matters at hand. The Doctor simply wanted to force her agenda at the expense of other important topics. Why? Follow the money. Rather than post idle threats toward Dr Conway, why not attempt to reach out to him for a brief discussion? He runs a successful practice on the coast and undoubtedly will make time for his constiuants that make reasonable cohearant inquiries.

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.

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.
