Did the Li'l Tater ever make his appointments to the Flag Commission?

is this when Herr Gunn, Dilbert and Traitor Tater will unveil our new flag? If you are thinking you are going to get to have a say in it, you are a IDIOT.... Follow the Money people......

How hard is choosing a new flag? Just pick 3 or 4, put it on the November ballot, and be done with it.

Der Kommissar's in town, whoa oh oh

No- The Governor has not made any appointments. Guess he's not interested in participating.

Should have Col. Sanders on it.

@10:40, we all “had a say” in it when we elected our representatives and senators. Get over it.

I would like to see the state flag have red, white, and blue stripes with the state seal in the center. I am proud of our state seal. Ted Fortenberry, vice president of WLBT, says that it will be a “hideous flag that matches our hideous car tags”. He also said, “if you give us a crappy option like our state seal on a piece of cloth”. If you would like to see Fortenberry's complete unpatriotic editorial here is the link. It is only 1 1/2 obnoxious minutes: https://www.wlbt.com/2020/07/16/consider-this-new-flag-design/

@10:42 Nope. He hasn't made any appointments, even though the law required him to do so no later than July 15. Try to keep up.

You know how the Cubs raise the W flag after a win? We could have a WW flag, "Watch your Weight"

The new flag should just be a big ole confederate flag, like they have flying down in Wiggins. I mean one big confederate battle flag. That way the rest of this stupid liberal country and especially Nancy Pelosi know exactly where we stand. Hail State and God bless America!

Give me the current flag with a circle of stars on a blue background replacing the Confederate battle flag.

ALSO Tater needs to appoint persons on all the County commissions etc. to get rid of all of feel's appointees / people.

@12:34 Let me guess, you or a member of your household draws a check from working with the Legislature. I voted for my representative because I thought he was honest upstanding guy. However when he became a "leader" in the legislature, he became an egotistical power and money grabbing politician whose only out for himself. Kinda funny Ole Miss and MC both saw through him and he didn't make the short list either place. Heard he's wanting an IHL position now. BTW wipe that kool-aid smile off your lip. Its looks silly on a man of your age.

If you don't like the New Mississippi, then maybe you should just move! Sorry, don't mean to be a sore winner, but you rebel flag folks need to get over this and move on.

@2:41. Don’t make them rush into getting over it. I mean, the United States of America won the Civil War 155 years ago. Give the flangers a little more time. (for the boneheads, this is satire)

10:42...as of yesterday, Monday, according to Supertalk News, Tater-skin had NOT appointed his groupies.

Anonymous said...

Unlike Dilbert and the 'new' Feel - when the y passed this law creating the commission - the Governor was given strict criteria about who he could appoint, limiting his choices to the 'groups' that Delbert and Philip felt should be represented. But, they of course in their new powergrabbing positions didn't put any restrictions on their three choices.

Telling Tate who he can appoint to their commission was just one more stab at him and the office.

If I were Tater, I wouldn't rush to fill the positions - with Philip basically appointing himself and Delbert appointing his 'friend' (former employee) they intend to control this process with Tate just being allowed to ride in the backseat.

Does anyone know where I can sign the petition that is circulating for the flag to depict a magnolia flower or tree? We are the magnolia state, and it would not be controversial. Think of Canada's maple leaf flag, bold, simple and readily recognizable around the world.

No flag

I vote we don’t have a flag

Move on

@2:41. It's not all about the flag. Klink(Gunn) and Schultz(Dilbert) think they are unstoppable now with their 'suspension of the rules' power move. Heard from multiple sources that Klink was close to pulling same stunt on medical marijuana but covid got in the way. Personally don't care either way but I do care about my right to vote on issues not just taking what our "leaders" are getting paid to pass. Follow the money folks....just look at campaign donations...it's an eye opener.


LocknLoad4Christ said...

Medical marijuana? Not on my watch, brother. I've seen the societal destruction the Green Reaper can deliver, it's no joke. You think High Street is bad now? Wait till these degenerates start loading their rigs with sativa imported from Commiefornia or Comorado! Thank God I live in Pearl! I'll be sure to mention this at bible study tonight.

I know about a dozen folx that live in Pearl who make monthly weekend treks to the Colorado border for edibles and high grade.

With all our COVID problems, the f**king flag should be the least of our problems.

@4:27...By absolutely refusing to state an opinion on the flag (2 step Tater-head) he effectively made himself irrelevant. Further, he managed piss off the entire state!

Anonymous said...

Move along...nothing of relevance will take place other than deciding which McAlisters to order sandwiches and tea from, filling out a travel voucher and setting the next meeting.

Has anybody seen the mysterious marching orders for this learned group of deep thinkers? Nope. And you won't.

Anonymous said...

1:50 Is absolutely correct. “It's all about the money”. Flag issue included.

Lebowski said...

It is about lil Ole Piss politicians and doctors worried they will not have a tournament or any regional. It is not about money. They are scared to lose their NCAA and SEC statuses, which will never change anything. It is personal only to their ideals in life.

Anonymous said...

@6:22, the marching orders are in the bill signed by the Governor. Cannot include Confederate battle flag emblem. Must include In God We Trust.

Lebowski said...

Only about their ideals for life through their wants for some weekends living through college sports. NCAA and SEC should be the ones losing a state. Mississippi can survive without this BS. Stand up people. That is what Mississippi is about. Defiance and integrity!

Bronze Mike Leach statue being commissioned as we speak... Hail to the New State Order! Air Raid sirens being installed at Davis Wade ...

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.
