Rick Guy took out Kingfish 1 yesterday and shot some photos of Ratliff's Ferry.  Check out the Pearl River as it rises over Ratliff's Ferry.

No new flood control projects since the massive 79 flood. It’s hard to fathom. So much tragedy for thousands of people. But hey, we gotta save those turtles.

Would it help if Finish the Pumps and One Lake was built?? Ask Nimrod -the engineer wizard of theDelta. Not making fun—that really is his name.Stop building in the floodplain and destroying wetlands. Hopefully a way can be found to allow flood victims to get out of harms way in the future.Turtles Lives Matter—-that’s cute.

Be patient, grasshoppers. Mayor Baby Chock is agressively working on some radical ideas that will fix all of Jackson's ills.

Couldn't y'all just see him overflowing with ideas and confidence at yesterday's presser? That ladies and gentlemen is a born leader.

Jacktown is truly blessed to have such an accomplished chief executive.

Just had the hottest January in recorded history. Better get used to these extreme weather events, they are only going to be more frequent as we continue to shit on on scientific facts.

There is a difference between weather and climate. You can't make a claim or prediction without data and there is no historical climate data showing increased rainfall caused by atmospheric C02.

As a matter of fact you climate alarmists predicted CO2 would cause drought 5 years ago and now you are blaming all of the rain on C02.

Prior to that you clinate alarmists predicted global warming would mean no more winters and no more snowfall. We are having record cold and record snowfall. It snowed in both Texas and Saudi Arabia this winter.

The truth is you cant predict any further than a 5 day forecast. All climate change predictions since James Hansen's testimony before Congress in the 1980s have been wrong.

And they will continue to be wrong because atmospheric C02 doesn't produce a meaningful change on global temperatures.

@9:56 It would be nice if you would stop referring to hyperbole as fact...2020 did not even make the top 10 for warmest January...please do a little research before you hyperventilate and cry that the sky is falling

Tragedy is pending and some of you just want to take shots at the mayor. With all of his faults, a flooding Pearl river is not one of them. Come on man.

The liberals and econutters are always trying to connect weather to climate change. Next thing you know someone will show up here and try to claim there is some sort of connection between flooding in Mississippi and record temperatures in Antarctica.

A series of unfortunate events- floods in Mississippi, 69 degrees yesterday in Antarctica and yet these places are several thousand miles apart.

Just like Bill O Reilly said about tides! "Tide goes in, tide goes out. Never a miscommunication. You can’t explain that."

You climate deniers are literally stealing children's future.

The evidence is rising in the streets and you cant stop supporting big oil and big ag corporations.

Anonymous said...

11:09 You have been indoctrinated with anti business crap. Big oil and ag business have nothing to do with flooding. You grasp of history is none! The great flood of 1927 was the worst we have had. No big oil or ag business caused it. Grow up and stop spouting socialist propaganda!

More certified Farm Burro nonsense at 11:24. The bogus facts smell like one of those family farm manure lagoons. Or money. Take your pick.

The Farm Burro fool forgot to claim that draining millions of acres of wetlands in the Upper Mississippi and Ohio basins so they could be farmed prior to the floods of 1927 also had nothing to do with the great flood of 1927.

@10:26, what you just wrote is your own fantasy and completely incorrect and based on nothing but your own distorted fantasy that I’m sure was reinforced by some tabloid researcher on Fox News.. It’s pretty sad when half the population can look at a thermometer and call it fake news. This stuff is really not difficult. According to NOAA, January 2020 was the hottest in recorded history. This is a Trump controlled agency that admits the scientific fact of the global temperatures and you morons still try to act like you are smarter than the scientists who study this stuff for a living. It would at least be easier to understand your position if you would admit that you don’t care about the planet or future generations instead of pretending to be so gullible as to trust a politician’s opinion without any scientific data over phd’s who spend careers studying it.

No, 10:26 isn't wrong or making up fantasies. NASA and NOAA admitted to tampering with the data "becuz reasons" and the media just bought their answer.

It only took 3 seconds to Google it. No foxnews sources either.

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.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
