Have to admit, our present Governor is at least attempting to keep us informed, in contrast with his self- promoting predecessor .

It's the Tate Reeves Show, staring Tate Reeves, with special guest stars the scarecrow, the tin man, and the cowardly lion. A backslapping good time was had by all.

Bobby Harrison asked a very important question. Does the Legislature have the authority to Appropriate/Spend the money? WATCH THIS SHIT EXPLODE.

The money went to the state and he thinks his little grubby hands are going to spend it all. NOT SO FAST MY FRIEND! Look for this to be the first nuclear war of the term.

My prediction is:

Delbert/Gunn 1

Little Hitler 0

Tate's reelection will be just like Trump's.
No matter what he does, the left will attack him at every turn.

But that's OK, it will only solidify the conservative vote.

That fact drives the liberals crazy.

Doesn't this bring to mind that famous "Pulp Fiction" line as told by "Winston Wolfe" to "Jimmie", "Jules Winnfield", and "Vincent Vega" in "Jimmie's" garage after they finished cleaning up the car and were proud of what they did?

All of the above are obviously stoned. Not a damned one made sense.

The joke is on us, the public. It’s the daily statewide nursing home mortality report, uh sorry “long term care facility.” Hospitals are empty. There is no ventilator shortage. Everyone keep staying at home and wearing your masks though. See you tomorrow, same time. Just give these guys one two more.... no however many more weeks they want.

Well, 6:48 just proved the first 5:58's point.

Elon Musk summed it up nicely today. He has the guts to say publicly what many are thinking. As Earl Pitts used to say "Wake Up America"

5:29 - bet's on.

While Dilbert might think he has this authority, and of course Phillip and his House cronies want the fun as well, they need to read the language that provides this money.

The legislature 'appropriates' money and the executive spends it. This money is not appropriated, because it is not MS money -----from taxes, tarrifs, fines, or whatever.

Will be just like the Katrina money, the GOMESA dollars, and the BP funds that were to the state (not those that replaced the state's loss of tax revenue.) All of those resided in the Governor's office and hands - because they were grants from the feds to the states and that's how the legislation spells it out.

Won't stop the legislators from trying, though. The power play from the Capitol will be fun to watch. But as the old saying goes, He who has the Gold makes the rules.

In this case, at the beginning the feds have the Gold and they made the rules - not to be changed by Governor Dilbert.

And in the second case, the one that has the gold is the Governor, because that is how it will be transmitted to the state. And as Secretary of the Treasury said, it will be audited to see that the spending complies.

So - make your bet. I'll take it with even odds.

Let em go boys, "if enough of em gets it, we might turn it blue."

I thought Senator Wicker's comments on elective procedures was most interesting. He says they need to be done because doctors and hospitals need the money.

What I didn't hear was how to do so safely.

Will the doctors and centers be doing all they can to assure the safety of their patients? Or will it be that it is OK to have death by doctor because they need the money?

This non-Koolaid drinking conservative will never vote for Tate after this.

Tate needs a media coach...if he was announcing that the state was giving away gold bricks he couldn't hold the audience's attention. All those "ums and ahs" indicate that he's both nervous and not really sure of his message...just what we need in a leader.

Calm Down said...

I read a lot of negative snark on Tate, but nothing specific or constructive. You don't like his media presentation skills. He's a little Hitler. It's the Tate show.

It would be nice to hear someone give an alternative suggestion as to what exactly should be done. Tate's not perfect, but I'd say he's done pretty well with a lousy hand here.

And I say that as a wuflu skeptic.

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.
