No Comment.

Hinds County District 2 Supervisor David L. Archie just can't help himself.  This message popped up on the Facebook page of Hinds County Administrator Jennifer Riley Collins this week:

The Street Committee says Ms. Buie's daughter works at Continental Tire as some sort of liason or diversity officer.  Not sure of the job title but you get the idea.  Mr. Archie apparently went out there and raised some hell with her about minority hiring, participation, contracts, you know, the usual con game he pushes.  Actually raising some hell might not be a good description but rather the proper one might be is he acted a damn fool, creating a scene as only he can.

Needless to say, Mama Bear didn't appreciate the way her daughter was treated.

 And now a word from our sponsor.


Where are my kickbacks? said...

Shaking people and businesses down, just like the righteous "reverend" Sharpton.

I understand momma bear being emotionally overcome; however, the employer should have pressed charges if this man came onto its property in a threatening manner. Period. Let him go to court and be released with charges dropped...but...take his ass to court as would be the employer's right and responsibility.

Diversity officer?? Why can't private businesses just hire who they want? As long as they can do the job, pass whatever background the employer requires, etc., why does Archie even have a say who gets hired, and how was he even let on the property? I wish Kelcey would have recorded the encounter so we could see first hand the kind of shakedowns our local government is engaged in.

What a bunch of bullshit...I'd let him know he is no longer welcome and have him arrested for criminal trespass the next time he comes around.

This is why corporations do not open plants or establish operations in areas of not very well informed (aka stupid/ignorant/both) people, as they elect stupid/corrupt/both people.

1:55 - Reality and the facts in the matter sort of kill your theory.

Perhaps 1.55 PM should’ve added the word “more” between the words “why” and “corporations”

If I were the CEO of this tire factory I would shut it down and move away. This would be David L Archies's Legacy. Then again he would blame them dirty low down white people.

District 2 is getting what they deserve for staying on their butts and not supporting McQuirter. His six years was the brightest spot on Hinds County's record for the last 3 decades and they didn't even bother to show up to vote in 2019.

All you folks out in the county who were beating him up during the election need to go read the board agendas for January and February and look at the rural roads that David Archie too OFF the paving list so he can pave Mayes Street and other roads inside Jackson.

BTW, no way Continental would have located here without McQuirter's leadership. Hinds would not have been on Continental's finalist list had they been dealing with David Archie.

1:55 PM is absolutely correct.

I'm still scratching my head why Continental Tire even selected Hinds County. There are many more business friendly counties in Mississippi they could have chosen.

Regarding David "L" Archie . . . well, that's just another classic example of the people getting what they elected.

I guess posters on JJ assume they are smarter than the CEO of a multi billion dollar worldwide corporation. That makes you just like David Archie.

They are Germans. They DID lose 2 consecutive back to back World Wars.

I voted in the Republican Primary to help a friend, but if I knew that a village idiot like Archie would get elected I would have gone to any lengths to vote against him.

Please run again, Commissioner McQuirter! I promise not to let you down EVER AGAIN.

5:07, perhaps we should have open primaries.

So what ?

The Germans also bombed Pearl Harbor.


But real Germans are way too smart to select Hinds County for any project.

1:55 is absolutely correct !

Nobody ever mentions the collateral damage corporations suffer from idiot employees and crooked con artists.

It never ends with these shakedowns.

Archie, Bennie Thompson and their likes are nothing but poison to Mississippi. I wouldn't open jack shit around here other than a liquor store, or a check cashing shop.

@7:27 get a sense of humor my friend, that WWII joke was great. And the Germans did not bomb Pearl Harbor. It is important to the rest of us that you know that. Of course, maybe you were being sarcastic. I’m hoping so.

Geeze 9:48 . . . .

You have nothing to worry about.
Have you ever heard of a little film titled "Animal House" ?

I thought everybody knew the Germans bombed Seattle. Jeeze.

This is a shit show on so many levels.
1) Moms and Dads-stay out of your kids’ f@#$ing businesses. If you raised them SO DAMN RIGHT, they can handle their own shit. Unless they are still nursing, let them be grown. Momma bear-you are now the problem and you obviously didn’t do a good job raising your child if you have to stick your nose in it.
2) A diversity officer is code word for hiring incompetent people, regardless of their race. Hire the most qualified candidate and your business will be successful. Start having quotas and you you will be better off moving your business to Mexico.
3) Archie the clown-go home. You are just keeping Hinds county in the bottom. Be gone.

A smart guy would have went out there and said We are so glad to have you'll here in Hinds County and look forward to a long relationship and thank you for all you are doing on minority hires.

But we are talking about David Archie. This is the biggest and best thing to happen to Hinds County in years and Archie screws that up.

For what it’s worth, Bennie Thompson was kept in the dark about the Continental announcement until the day of the announcement because MDA and the county knew he would screw it up. That’s the main reason he came out firing against McQuirter the last 24 months and supported Darrel’s challengers. He and Toni Johnson and David Archie can bark all day long but it’s too late to scare off Continental. They have employees from 20 counties.

Make Noise. Nothing personal. Success and failure have nothing to do with it. Our constituents were poor and ignorant when we began and will be poor and ignorant when We are finished. In fact we never intend to finish. We make noise. Noise. Noise. Noise. Nothing personal.

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.

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.
