Do as I say........

It appears our leaders are all about doing as they say but not as they do if one judges what took place at Martin's two days ago.

The House broke for lunch Thursday.  Speaker Phillip Gunn and his trusty gophers Trey Lamar, Jason Alexander White, and at least 15 other Reps held court at Martins.  They jammed several tables together and all broke bread together.  Shoulder to shoulder, cheek to cheek. Sitting next to them just a yard away was a four-top of Representatives who were already there when they good ole boys arrived.  Exactly how many hoops do they make everyone else jump through when visiting the Capitol during this pandemic?

Why the heck should we wear masks and space out if our leaders choose not to do so?

Of course, it would be funny if they all got the virus.  No.sympathy.whatsoever.

How are they supposed to eat with a mask on? I knew a chick who could breath through her ears, but eating...no.

Gunn is a hypocrite. On EVERYTHING.

Trey must be too busy trying to be Politically Correct to have time for social distancing and masks.

Any pics of our hypocrites?

DUH 12.22 pm NOT social distancing and they should have their masks going in and out and ordering and paying.

You want to a businesses staff and customers to stay well or else, they'll have to close again.

CLUELESS! You are clueless!

KF - you have kicked the ant hill that is Gunn's overpaid lackey. They will be all over this site pushing back hard with strong political rhetoric. After all, that's why he is paid six figures.

It is almost as if our leaders know that it is all a hoax.

We have 20% unemployment because of what THESE GUYS say?

Meanwhile, the Swinging Bridge Festival is in full swing in Tate's old stomping grounds. Barbecue contest, live music and cornhole. Not many masks though.

Is this a surprise to anyone?

Remember when hardly any of the reps had up to date inspection stickers?
They all want special treatment from law enforcement. Use their knowledge of upcoming project, roads, etc. to benefit financially.

It has always been do as I say not as I do.

Went to a bar with a group of representatives a year ago. There was no shortage of lackeys pissing all over themselves to bring drinks to the reps.

It was comical to see them watching the crowd to identify who was down to the last few sips of their drink.

Even more comical is how these idiot representatives felt like they deserved to be waited on by lobbyists and groupies.

It was not their fault. If they had mask on, the lobbyists might not recognize them and they might have to pay for their own meals.

The only one with a mask on was the one who got caught beating up his wife last year. He was afraid HE WOULD be recognized.

He could wet kiss every person he sees in the Martins' parking lot for all I care, that man pushed the flag vote through the House!

Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

1:04 pm like our President and unlike the rest of us , they are tested frequently and protected from folks like you.

They know as others do. There is not that much to this so called crisis. I want to see what everyone's gonna do when some real shit hit us. Numbers do not support Armageddon as others would have you believe. Still more folks dying from other malady's.

What an evil thing to say in closing. Damn.

I cannot even deal with all the ignorance in these comments. This virus is real and 125k people have died in 4 months. But sure, call it a hoax. UGH

Anonymous said...

I think that's why this virus has confounded so many politicians, it does not acknowledge that the rules (which they helped make) don't apply to them.

for decades the ms legislature met for the month of january only. here we are almost to july with no end in sight. all brought to you by your precious mississippi republican party. the party of ''limited'' government.

Kingfish, you are a disgusting human being. If you were on a reputable news site instead of your own little blog you would have justifiably been fired for making a statement wishing harm to come to others. Prove you are actually a decent human being and apologize.

At lunch, their task is to eat -- without a mask. On the House floor, the Speaker's job is to speak -- without a mask on, and our Representatives' job is to debate and argue -- without a mask on.

====================

He’s been speaker since 2012 and now, in 2020, after businesses and universities told the state to change it, does he oh so bravely lead the charge. Give me a break.

Anonymous said...

He whipped up the votes, 6:27. He took advantage of the momentum, sure. But he and Filbert did a hell of a lot more than their predecessors or the governor.

Kingfish said...

Nope. No apologies. Do I wish harm on them? Hell no. Not at all.

Considering they scream at us all week long to wear masks and socially distance. I get press releases outlining what the strict procedures are to enter the Capitol because of Covid. Then when these guys are out of sight, they immediately revert to their true nature. Of course you have to remove a mask to eat. Duh.

Our state health officer is warning anyone who will listen all week long that public gatherings are a public health threat right now but these guys who SLRP away and think they are better than the rest of us think the rules don't apply to them and they are immune to the virus.

I meant I have no sympathy at all if they all gave it to each other when they are pulling stunts such as this one.

Trust me, I heard about this from more than one person. Several people were perturbed by their behavior.

The COVID is no joke. I have it good authority that it has killed 120 million Americans. I know it is true because the next President, Joe Biden said so.

Anonymous said...

6:27, Gunn has been pushing for a change of our flag for at least 5 years. Get the facts before you comment.

Anonymous said...

Gunn never "pushed" for a flag until the football coaches came to the cap dome on Thursday.

Pappy Odaniel said...

Look, the mask is for YOU people. YOU people and them people from other places are spreading the coronavirus. YOU people don’t worry about what is important folk are doing over here.

you should see em packed into the locker room at ticos. booze, steaks and women. all courtesy of the lobbyists that control them.

Anonymous said...

you should have stayed until the end of the lunch when the check comes. no legislator paid for anything. a lobbyist dropped by the next day to pay the tab. in cash of course.

Kingfish said...

Many times its the other way around. It is the legislators sticking the lobbyist with the tab. One one hand there is a lobbyist who needs legislation passed. On the other hand is a powerful chairman or legislator who is past that point of losing an election. He is in a position of power and he knows it. Who do you think leans on who for that tab? The legislators routinely stick lobbyists with the bills.

Several lobbyists have told me they try to avoid walking into Ticos and some of the other nice places during session unless it is a formal business dinner because all it means is a bunch of drunk legislators will stick them with the bill.

Kingfish, some of your commentators take this blog way too serious! I hope they don’t sue you for giving them a stroke or heart attack. Keep up the good work!

People it’s information!!!

"Kingfish, some of your commentators take this blog way too serious! "

Yep.

And KF seems to have been taking sarcastic comments way too serious as well over the last few weeks.

But it is his blog.

Not the same, but still his . . .

They know the virus, while real, generally only affects the very old and immunocompromised. They want YOU to wear the mask to prove your fealty.

I was in a bar in rural Madison county last Thursday night when a party bus loaded with state reps showed up. They proceeded to drink as much liquor as they could in a short amount of time. They were rude, loud and drunk. They didn't social distance or wear masks. I hear it was the flag committee.

Anonymous said...

It's not about them, it's about you. It's about keeping you so afraid that you will do whatever they tell you. You'll even wear a mask when you go outside in your own backyard by yourself.

That's how stupid you will be due to fear.

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.
