Thanks to Jackson Jambalaya

I just wanted to thank Jackson Jambalaya for posting the response I made yesterday on the Jackson Free Press website (it's in the section where Donna Ladd "un"-endorses a candidate for the state senate). While Ms. Ladd had responded at least twice to my original post on the website, she also banned me from replying, so I responded by using another account, which apparently, in her extremely limited understanding of the internet, makes me an"[expletive deleted] troll."

This was not my first experience (or that of others I have discovered) with The Jackson Free Press refusing to publish dissenting views; my impression is that Ms. Ladd is only comfortable publishing people who are in complete lockstep with her--or with sad, not terribly educated posters of whom even she, with her (and I am being generous here) competent writing skills, can make mincemeat of.

At any rate, I was somewhat surprised at how thin-skinned she is, and I do have some fear that her major organs may not be able to be contained by an epidermal layer that miniscule.

I find it highly unfortunate that the very people who are committed to the values she espouses for Jackson and Mississippi are not allowed to express themselves unless they are members of what is apparently "The Donna Cult." It's a sad thing for Jackson that our alternative paper is less open to challenging discourse than a Gannett newspaper.

So big thanks to Jackson Jambalaya for keeping free speech free, and not allowing someone who appears to be growing more meglomanical by the minute from silencing people who disagree with her.

Kingfish note: Thank you Maria. Here is the post mentioned: This blog is all about free speech. The only time things get zapped is if someone slanders, incites to commit criminal acts, or is too vulgar. The Voltaire Society is alive and well on this site. Maria is a very talented writer who has won awards. I am definitely looking forward to reading more of her writing.

I just read the thread you got booted from. One of your pals from the campaign tried to explain his position on illegal immigration. Which wa he was going to follow federal law in employment. He said they were againt mass raids, mass deportations, etc.

Didn't matter. It was all the same thing to her.

Then she said she would love to have an intelligent discussion on immigration when she failed to acknowledge any of his points. Irony. and hypocrisy.

The intelligent discussion dodge is so transparent. It is a circular communications model that never ends in the originator's (Ladd's) mind until you reach the conclusion she believes represents the only logical answer after all "facts" have been thoroughly reviewed. Oh, and don't forget that Ladd will solely let you know which sourcing will be acceptable for the "discussion".

I listened to their micro-broadcast of last week on WLEZ. While Stauffer acquits himself well with a fairly reasoned economic argument -- though his rationale that the immigrant issues save our social security system is not well thought out -- there remain many marketplace and workforce factors that he isn't considering that are part of the push/pull encouraging undocumented workers to come here without authorization.

I'm sure one could attempt to enter these additional considerations into the JFP "intelligent discussion" though I'm convinced without trying that they would not be welcomed because they don't provide any incremental support basis for the Ladd/Stauffer talking points.

Welcome to the club Maria. The JFP is a one-song band and Ladd its one-note accordionist.

Meet the control freak, same as any other control freak.

By the way Stauffer you need to make a distinction when you quote birthrate stats between native born and non-native born citizens. The stat you are quoting is imprecise without the qualifier though that fact is likely lost on the JFP cultists.

Her idea of a debate is for her and her reporters drag out stuff about eugenics, segregation, and Race and Reason when illegal immigration is discussed.

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.
