I'm always been fascinated by the cartels. You rarely ever approve comments about them though.

Wind Down. That will just raise my blood pressure.

Of more localized interest should be the Indian gasoline cartel operating in the Metro. Say what you will and deny its existence if you wish; however, that group is fast buying up every gasoline station and convenience store they can get their hands on while building others. They will eventually corner the market.

A cartel is not always owned/operated by a particular nationality, but in the example given by both Kingfish and me, it is. A cartel is not necessarily a pejorative term, but eventually it will control prices in a market.

4:06. what about all the crazy white guys and their gun stores? That’s the real tragedy. I was able to go buy a gun from one of y’all and I definitely shouldn’t have been allowed. But they don’t care. Only thing the guy cared about, like everyone else it seems, is their wallet.

You want to go after the drug dealers but not the gun dealers. Hypocrites. The Republican Party is dead. Most drug dealers have on white coats.

4:06 you don't know much about C stores and gas prices.
Prices are based on current delivered price. That's right some days they lose money.
As a group C-Store owners (the Indians white,black, and Corp.) are the most competitive people on Earth especially when it comes to gas. It's the bread, candy and junk at the cash register that they make their money on.
Also this is a job Americans don't want, it's 12 to 18 hours a day for most of them and you have to put up with assholes everyday who think you got it made.

8:12 - Thank you for replying. Perhaps you will tell us why the stations owned by the Cartel have gasoline priced from four to seven cents a gallon higher than the stations they don't yet own. Have you priced the gas at Deerfield/Old Canton? Outrageous.

And as to 'jobs Americans don't want', that's bullshit. The first thing they did when they bought out all the Valeros was cut out all benefits. Then those who had not left to find benefits elsewhere managed to get terminated. All of those were 'Americans'. But, I assume these Indian operator/owners to also be Americans, or did you mean to say 'white people'?

Regardless of your fictional reasons for them buying up stores, you can NOT deny that it's taking place. And another goal in every situation (where allowed and space permits) is putting a liquor store in the other end of the building. Candy, bread, junk, gas, peanuts, beer and whiskey. Oh, and poor customer interaction with zero eye contact. But, since they corner the market, they don't care about the trivial. Next, we will discuss the motel cartel.

You left out the drug-dealing, 8:55.

So what? Purchase fuel somewhere else. Do you whine like this about everything?

The C stores and hotels are a way to bring in every member of a village or clan on work visas. And they aren't all Indians. Some of them are Pakistani, Sri Lankan, or Bangladeshi and they are all racist against one another. But your average color blind chicken mcnugget Chalkie can't tell the difference. Which is why the Elmer's are losing because they are all so fat lazy and stupid.

When this milk cow dries up the visa holders will load their lucre on 747s and fly home.

Thanks for leaving us your "opinion," DD. I have yet to find a matter small enough in Madison County that you don't bitch about on your personal Facebook group.

I've seen videos of victims who have been flayed and beheaded by cartel enforcers. If you ever saw the Mel Gibson film Apocalypto it is very reminiscent of the scene where the priest is doing the mass sacrifice. Just a primitive and excessive orgy of gore.

Don't think it wont start here. Too much drug consumption, too many drug arrests, and too many demographics. There is no denying that we have more and more hispanics showing up in the metro every single day. And while they arent all cartel members, it allows the cartel members to blend in.

Very interesting and insightful. Thanks for posting this, KF.

I see we need an economics lesson you know that thing call supply and demand, then there is market and sales volume you need to think about. The guy at Deerfield has all of the things you will find atthe stores near the interstate. The store at interstate will turn his inventory 60 times a year. The at Deerfield will be lucky to turn his 45. He could careless if you buy his stuff or if you want you can drive to the interstate at 9pm. That's why it's called a "convenient store."
As it relates to them bringing in their relatives to the family business, they most certainly do, most people can trust that a realitive is a good hire. When this happens they pay taxes, get their visa renewed on time, go school online, get a degree,save every penny they can until they can invest in a store of their on, why because this is the way to prosperity, they have a lifetime to work on citizenship.iu

All the chattering aside, the comment posted above is the truth and you all know it:

"Say what you will and deny its existence if you wish..."

Cartels have one goal, "Corner the market". "Own the market". I don't think they're involved in drugs in our area but they're certainly after all the gasoline, peanuts, pizza, beer, whiskey and motel money.

Think about it - While you're pretending it's not real and you deny the existence of the Metro Cartel, they'll eventually own every damned station in three counties and you won't be able to 'purchase fuel somewhere else'. You own the market, you set the price. That's the way cartels operate, whether it's drugs, gasoline, oil, bootleg whiskey or poontang.

Cartels you mean Sprintmart, Fleetway, Cefco and Circle K right they along with Kroger and Murphy Oil control over 40% of the gas volume in the metro, I don't see much difference in their pricing. They have 10x the buying power of any of the smaller chains and independents. In some sub markets the smaller chains and independents even have lower prices.

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.
