Colonial Restarts

 Good news.  CNBC reported: 

Colonial Pipeline restarted operations Wednesday at approximately 5 p.m. ET after a ransomware attack last week forced the entire system offline on Friday evening. The company did warn, however, that its pipeline would not be fully functional immediately.

Following this restart it will take several days for the product delivery supply chain to return to normal,” Colonial said in a statement. “Some markets served by Colonial Pipeline may experience, or continue to experience, intermittent service interruptions during the start-up period. Colonial will move as much gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel as is safely possible and will continue to do so until markets return to normal,” the company added. Rest of article.

Joe Biden stepped in and told those Russian hacks game over.

The Russians ran like hell!

Way to go Joe!

6:11, what a hilarious joke. When are you going on tour as SNL's new front man and where can we get an autographed picture?

News is Joe tripped when step'n over the curb and actually had millisecond cognitive thought and asked "what am I doing on the ground"?

@6:11 You in the market for a bridge? I got one for sale. Cheap.

It's more like Uncle Joe told his Chicom pals that this was long enough to create another crisis - which should never be allowed to go to waste.

Yeah. Way to go, Slow Joe.

BS, Joe Biden iS the problem. He has chosen to put the US last in every decision he has made in his 100 days in office! Remember him saying Iran was not a threat and laughing about it as VP? Our Navy Ship recently fired warning shots in the Strait of Hormuz. Israel is facing enormous problems now. The border is unsafe with cartels having new found open doors into the US, while stirring up anger between Americans over made up racial disparity that is unfounded. The hatred spewed while Obama was President towards all Law Enforcement at State, Federal and local levels has created such a divide that will cause our children more harm than they deserve. There are bad people in all walks of life including churches. I do not want to live in a country without laws, law enforcement, protected borders and a great Military!

Our government should offer a multimillion dollar bounty on those guys - dead or dead. Folks should know all we want is proof and bodies.

Way to go America!

That’s so cool that an American helped Americans!

Can we agree that hackers hacking Americans getting stopped by Americans is good for America?

Good thing I filled up all my plastic gas cans and put them in the back of my car at Kroger in Jackson yesterday!

Investment tip..You heard it first on JJ. Electric car stock will go up and panic buyers will drive up prices.Is there a conspiracy somewhere?

Did anyone catch Biden's energy secretary yesterday when pressed about shipping fuel via rail car, that pipelines were in fact the best way to move fuel? Biden's first order in office was shutting down the Keystone pipeline. Things that make you go hmmmmmmm.

I would think that a cyber attack on a private company would be that company’s problem. They didn’t even have a Cyber Security manager on the payroll.
Joe has a 63% approval rating in the latest AP poll. He must be doing something right. The ones crying and complaining are in the Minority. Looks like Joe is going to cruise to re-election in 2024. The majority voted for him in 2020 (+7 million) and the majority approves of the job he is doing remaking America.

The people on this blog are so hateful and vengeful that they can’t support America when America is attacked and when America strikes back for Americans.

Y’all need to rethink things and figure out what makes you happy and try to be better citizens.

And if you reply with anything negative about a positive American story you might want to think about shooting your spouse and then yourself cause America is going to get better.

@8:46, polls have been wrong before. Ask Hillary Clinton. I'm sure the approval rating is heavily weighted with people being polled in blue states. Enjoy your gas shortages, hyper inflation, and high unemployment. I know who was boisterous about Biden, and they are mighty quiet these days.

I'd better not see anyone with last-digit even number tags in line at gas pumps today. Today is the 13th and my tag ends in 7!

I'm chuckling to myself because when I read the article headline at first I thought

I would suggest Singapore or Iran. They're pretty authoritarian. Strong military, too.

It's mentioned nowhere in this opening post or thread, but, according to my news feed, the company paid $5million ransom. No mention of whether the unmarked bills were left in a brown bag at the corner phone booth.

Nope...there will be NO decrease in the price, but you can expect a six to twelve cent increase by the end of the month.

What I want to know is why aren't we using the special MDOT fuel barge on the Mississippi River to help out our gas stations.

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.
