nobody cares! i sure don't (and by the way, i'm a white conservative republican). Columbus didn't discover America.

Actually, it's on the 12th. Mondays are another government screw-up, this one primarily benefiting government employees. Is anyone else off today?

Vintage video, indeed! In fourteen hundred ninety-two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue... no, I guess they don't sing that anymore. Let's not make ol' Chris into a bad guy because he was a man of his day. I'm glad to celebrate Indigenous Peoples' day ALSO, but not instead of Columbus Day.

The foundations of most American culture is based on lies. The truth would offend some but set us free. Let's just buy a new TV and watch some sportsball!

No, it's indigenous people's day.

The only Christophets I celebrate is Christopher Wallace and Christopher Tracy..I'm Black and Moderate.

Hey at 10:01 - you couldn’t carry water for Columbus, or Neil Armstrong, or the Wright Brothers. Discovery isn’t the point. It was the fact that someone went further than most would dare and all of us, as a result, benefit from their courage and commitment. Which leads others to follow their example. You, not caring, is probably evidence that no one a hundred years from now will benefit one iota from your endeavors.

F**k Columbus and the ships he sailed over on. Why is he important to Italians, because he did not make it to India. Was he also working for the Spanish monarchy at the time?

A very special day indeed.

Columbus was the first liberal democrat.
He left not knowing where he was going.
He arrived not knowing where he was.
He returned not knowing where he had been,
and he did it all on a government handout
Of someone else’s money.

Just another Monday at work.

Show me the person or group of people that set sail in to the unknown, where sea monsters lie in wait, AND they documented all they found so that many can follow. I’ll wait.....
Until then it’s Christopher Columbus Day.
Sure, some of the things were bad for other groups of people. Again, show me one milestone in human history where everyone in mankind benefited and I’ll reconsider my stance.
Until then it’s Christopher Columbus Day.

A million postal employees have the day off and their union constantly claims they are NOT federal workers. Oh...banks, schools, whore-houses.... But the casinos are open and the nickle slots are all shined up.

12:40 makes more sense than anyone else today.

It was inevitable that someone would eventually "discover" the Americas, just as it was inevitable what would happen when the stone age societies in place here came into contact with a technologically superior society, and it was compounded by the fact that they had no resistance to their diseases because of their isolation. The Native Americans weren't indigenous to the New World either, they had all come from Asia. I really feel sorry for what happened to the Indians, but what's done is done, and you cannot change it, despite the utter stupidity of attempting to punish people for what their ancestors did. As it stands now, you can suck it up and make the effort to improve whatever situation you're in, or you can wallow in self pity and blame your situation on everything and everybody else. Try both methods and see which one works better for you.

In other words, 12:40, Ole Chris would have been an ideal candidate for Jackson Medgar Airport Commish.

Columbus doesn't deserve to be in the same category as the Wright Bros. or Neil Armstrong (or Buzz Aldrin or Michael Collins for that matter, don't leave them out).

So we are going to say that the spot Columbus "discovered", aka "the West Indies" is the mecca of the 21st Century now? They have been plundered to death of their resources and no one in their right mind would ever want to live there.

A washed up cook that moved to New Orleans is one that uses sportsball. America is great and celebrate its history and yes Columbus Day.

We’re all here together now. I didn’t do anything to anybody, and nobody has done anything to you. We don’t live in mud huts, and we have things like government, currency, air conditioning, and advanced travel methods. Live your life and be happy.

Sad to see so many people hate on Columbus just because it's the new "woke" thing to do.

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.
