Those brown chunks in that water are not chocolate.

Remind me what part of HindsCo District 2 is getting flooded?

I'll stay out of the water but to tell me I can't look at the flooding from a safe place bullshit.

Notice the two smug bookends in the opening photo. Phil would have been wearing his MEMA windbreaker.

However, this would be a good time to get some cleaning crews out there with swimming pool nets and skim the trash off the surface.

With Credell and David Archie involved, I’ll sleep so much better.

Not to mention chemicals. Came in contact with floodwater during the Baton Rouge flood. Skin started burning after a few minutes each time. You don't know what is in that water. Forget sewage. That's mild. Might be gas, oil, acid, chemicals, you don' t know what is in it.

@5:48 PM when Lt. Graham retires Archie is going to slide over and run for the Dist1 seat since that is where he already lives.

Of course here's the real truth: Chokwe and his minions have been meeting non-stop plotting how to turn this situation into a disaster declaration, blame it on the State (PRV is a State Agency) and get millions for sewer, street and other infrastructure damages. He's taken a page from another famous democrat who once said, 'Never let a crisis go to waste'.

Book It!

Yep,hand talker will be the most famous person after this. Get ready for the memes.

Gotta love the parenting provided by democrats explains why even after almost 200 years yall still need someone else to fed yall kids.

No way would I let any kid play in that water with all the turds and pee in it.

Credell, Archie and Graham. Like they have the ability to do anything at all.

Um, every kid in Jackson played in the flood of 79.

How that turned out for Jackson...

The sad thing is that our kids can't play in the same water we expect them to drink. Our rivers have been made toxic by years of inaction from DEQ, who don't do a damn thing to clean up our state.

9:31 is absolutely right. Thousands of kids did. Easter and warm.

Your kid ever played in a community swimming pool. Percentage of pee and other crap in the average pool would exceed whats in this flood water.

Kids been peeing in pools since time immemorial - its just in the case of this flood, its other people's pee.

Damn that visual makes me feel good about this current problem, and the overall future of my city and county. We have Baby Chock, who doesn't have a clue how to solve anything, along with Archie and Calhoun.

Bring on the water - we are already screwed in Jackson, hard to get worse.

Just let natural selection take its course. What do you expect when you build a house in a swamp? There isn’t a homeowner affected by this that has a lick of sense.

Look at the numerous clips from the drones. You can see patches of sheen that is obviously Petrochemicals. Certainly all of it is known to cause cancer in California. Too many idiots. Too many onlookers.

It blows my mind that they have shot 20+ interviews by the creek next to Parham Bridges on Ridgewood, talking about the creek backing up and you can see a truckload of trash/debris accumulated by the culvert. Yet nobody from the city has enough sense to come scoop it out so the water can flow under ridgewood and also skim all that crap while the water is holding it up off the rocks. Once the water goes down, they’ll never be able to clean it all up.

Those were some kids a few houses down from me. Parents are physicians and private school kids that live on Sheffield Dr. You would assume they already would know the dangers. Also 50 kids from NE Jackson swimming where Jackson prep athletic fields are. It's unreal

One Call - Thaz All said...

How short the memories. Not long ago we were reading about untreated sewage water being released into the Pearl from Jxn water treatment plant and other articles about 'partially treated' shit water being released. It's a right of passage to play in and swim in the water. Just try not to take a big gulp when you go under. Some say you should be fine.

Chokwe's posture says, "I'm clueless". Calhoun's says, "Wazzup? Why am I here?" Lee Vance has decades of posing in front of video and still cameras.

Why is Graham being mentioned. If he's there, he's up under the podium, which is entirely possible.

Please tell me this is an April Fool's joke: the City of Jackson is closing all offices today to observe the holiday........including the sandbag location. Hello Board of Supervisors....Sheriff...or the Governor.

Will an adult please show up?

They drove over to Flowood to swim? And you drove over there to watch and count them?

I know that I'm beating a dead horse, but the City of Jackson and Hinds County 'leadership' is a gaggle of clowns. The only person that's got a lick of sense in that group giving the presser is the EOC director, and I'm not just saying that because he's white. I would imagine that this latest episode that is the Flood of 2020 is going to make a lot of die-hard NE Jacksonians really question whether or not they made the right decision to continue to live (stay) in Jacktown.

Anonymous said...

Damn the chemicals, yall ever seen a floating ball of fire ants in flood water? Screw that. That's reason enough not to play in it.

Side note, what area did they pull the sign language guy out of the water?

Anonymous said...

At one press conference the Lt. Guv was doing the talking and Tater was standing to the side. While Bryant was Guv, I don't recall him letting Tater do any of the talking at one of these events. Engleburt is laying the foundation for bigger and better things.

LOL at dumbasses on Sheffield.

Dear " looky there", :" I done seen them swimming", Bubbas and Bubettes,

You may be at "safe distance", but you may just as well get in the way of those trying to do their jobs. Civilians should stay out of disaster areas. No one needs your morbid curiosity anyway.

And,since I was helping those flooded in the McCloud and JA school areas in 1979, if there were " thousands" of kids playing in flood waters, they sure as hell weren't in those locations. Even the adults were careful and when they could check the homes, were outfitted to avoid the contamination including the stink.

And, for the other " know nothings", you really aren't going to find "libtards", as you like to call them, on Sheffield or in Eastover. Indeed, there aren't even many " RINOS" either. Maybe looking at the last Presidential voting in those precincts will give you a hint, numbskulls! JA, which is a haven for kids attending the conservative First Presbyterian Church after they leave it's school, is anything but a bastion of liberalism. And,most Sheffield kids go to JA. You are politically insulting your allies and financial backers instead of " helping the Cause".

Do some kids, of all ages ,escape parental supervision and do stupid things? Sadly, they always have and always will. And, yes, 50% of the population has a below average IQ every single day. Those in government have to communicate warnings to ALL the people or are supposed to do so. I suggest those of you in Rankin and Madison counties compare the flood information given out in your areas to help people avoid them before you smugly criticize Hinds.

@10:44 AM - chill out before you stroke out. It will be water under the bridge before you can say MAGA.

Kingfish said...

Oh brother, Simmons asked why the projections were off. This is not an exact science. Yeesh.

PittPanther said...

7:33pm, wouldn't that actually be smart for Chokwe to exploit this disaster, if it results in a financial windfall for an impoverished city? I would go as far as to say it would be incompetent to not go after disaster relief funds.

Anonymous said...

First of all, not 1000s of kids were playing in the water in '79. And, lest anyone doesn't remember, almost everyone in the City had to get tetanus shot after the flood.

The other thing I see different from '79 is the no-wake rule. If you went through a neighborhood in a motorized boat or ATV, you had to go slow to minimize wakes. I saw a video where a parent was pulling his kids on a little boat behind a four-wheeler the other day. In '79 his neighbors would have kicked his butt.

I will be damned if I let some Jackson liberals tell me what I can and can't allow my kids to do. I never got them vaccinated and I'm taking them to the Swinging Bridge right now for some country fun!

8:16 Quit talking about my daddy, or I'll give you a middle finger, universal sign language for you know what! My cousins, Rod & Reel says the water is warm for this time of year.

@Kingfish
That's COMMISSIONER Simmons to you. He has a title. Give the man the respect he is due. The veil is thin because you never forgot the title of Commissioner for Dick Hall.

Kingfish said...

I meant Scott Simmons you dumbass.

Anonymous said...

Kingfish is pissed because he can't stand to the left of the podium wearing a MEMA jacket. No, Bryant never shared the stage. He was too busy yacking about bringing industrial prospects from China while we were in the middle of a disaster. He's got more MEMA windbreakers than cowboy boots.

Kingfish is so infatuated with PERS I'm surprised he hasn't realized every soul addressing a microphone during this disaster is a PERS member and future retiree.

KINGFISH gets pissed in 3..2..1

"And, yes, 50% of the population has a below average IQ every single day."

Are you sure? How the hell do you come up with that?

If the entire population were lined up in a row, almost 50% would be either side of the midway-standing person. That's all that can be unquestionable stated. And if you could take a cleaver and split him down the middle, assuming an odd number standing in line, exactly 50% would be to either side of his nose.

As 3:25 a.m. pointed out, Feb. 17 @10:44 a.m. fails to comprehend the difference between average and median, all while looking down on the intellect of others. Alas, we tend to see our shortcomings in others, while remaining blind to our own. That seems to be the way it works.

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.
