Power to the People!

 Real Americans from Alabama have had enough and went to New York City to confront Blackrock.

Lol, can you imagine those New Yorkers brains right now ? It's like seeing a cow for the first time.........some may even feel like this is the end of days.

Interesting. So I guess for Republicans, they care more about appearing pro coal than anti union? I’m guessing commenters here don’t know how they are supposed to feel on this one. In the plus column you have a polluting industry and a big business shitting on union workers. In the negative column, they are coal workers from Alabama. This will blow a few minds out.

Surprised they could find their way there. Probably why there were only a couple hundred, the rest got lost after leaving their respective counties.

As bad as it sucks, they signed a contract knowing it was worse than the last one(per video). That's the thing about right to work, you can take your ass right on and apply for another job. Yes the company is greedy, but no one is making you work for them. I'm sorry, but all this feel good about the employees telling the employers what they should be paid is not how a free market society works. You either work for them, or don't. The company will find a common ground, or go broke.

"It's like seeing a cow for the first time".

Actually that's not too far from the truth.
Some New Yorkers have never left their "building".

I remember one New Yorker that flew into Memphis, (while in the back seat of his car to Jackson) .... he almost caused a wreck around the Sardis exit.

He screamed, the driver thought a wreck was imminent.

Turns out, this New Yorker saw his first of heard of cattle grazing in a pasture.

Ya gotta love Yankees.

You better love yankees and damn grateful to them. Their tax dollars are the only keeping Mississippi from looking like Mogadishu. Mississippi is a corrupt welfare state and we have no room to badmouth anyone.

Haha, let’s get this straight, we now have the same leftist Fondrenite shills who come on this blog defending the Control Vaccine (the first stage of The Great Reset) to defend a GOVERNMENT and Federal Reserve funded and supported investment group buying up entire neighborhoods to rent back to people so that they will “Own Nothing, and Be Happy” (the 2nd stage of The Great Reset)

Of course, they have no actual argument, only “rednecks, dumb hillbillies” etc

Good job, Antifa

BlackRock is a fake ‘woke’ company. They want to tell everyone else how to behave, but treat their workers poorly. Avoid their funds please!

In 2004, I was the lawyer for a film shooting in Oxford. The LA crew flew into Memphis and were horrified by the kudzu they saw on the drive to Oxford. They said it was like the horror movie Soylent Green.

Greta Van Susteren came to our very small rural town and when it got dark wanted to know where the street lights were.

The government is telling us coal is a problem in our county? Anybody care to talk about China and their emissions from their industrial complex?

Gaw-Lee said...

Most of you are lying. Example: There ARE no cows grazing near Sardis. And how is Greta Van Sisterhood relevant? She gained her footing the same place Heraldo did...OJ Trial. Lastly, 'right to work' has nothing to do with quitting a job to get another. It only precludes others from requiring you to pay union dues.

And The Fondrenites on here....Sheesh. Tom Head musta rounded them all up on a group text.

@2:32pm LOL You're not too far off on fact, thousands are fleeing NYC because of all the BS there. The idiot democrat diaspora is full ahead.

I don’t know what the problem is. Joe Biden already told them they could get jobs writing code! That’s right America voted into office as President someone that smart. Awesome!

The biggest rednecks I've ever met were from NYC. They know nothing about the rest of the country.

A mother and her teenage son spent a couple of days visiting us. We took them for a campfire cookout at our lake. When the frogs started singing and croaking at dark, they were so terrified of the unseen things making such a loud noise that we had to take them back to our house. The kid was shaking like a leaf.

After Hurricane Katrina, a work crew from NY were in our rural area assisting Entergy to restore power lines. They were upset when they saw some of our cows standing in a pond late afternoon and offered to help us rescue the cows. We explained that the cows stand in the pond every day to cool off and avoid horseflies and were perfectly capable of getting themselves out of the pond. So, yeah, New Yorkers' first sighting of cows. LOL.

When I lived in NOLA back in the early 1980s, I had a friend from Brooklyn who had never driven a car. I taught him to drive and loaned him my car to take the driving test. He passed and was so proud of being a New Yorker with a drivers license.

He asked if I would take him fishing in our lake so I loaded up the leaky old boat with the bail bucket, crickets, tackle, etc, and we went fishing. I quickly caught a nice bream which swallowed the hook so I had to rip it out of its mouth with a pair of pliers. When I bonked the fish on their heads to clean them, he nearly fainted about how "violent" fishing was. He had no idea!

And I'm a girl! LOL

My dad was a miner. It’s very physically demanding.

they had respirators but didn’t wear them underground. he would sneeze black mucous.

the only way someone does that job is for high end blue collar money.

the company will have to negotiate if all the workers strike. people aren’t clamoring to work in a mine

that being said-my dad was offered a auto line job in flint. more money. less work. didnt take it. the friend that got him the offer retired early and is still here.

black lung is a killer..

So, " Real Americans from Alabama"?...
So what exactly makes them " real"? You've not seen blue collar workers protest in New York or are all those in Alabama who are in management or professions not real?

Having been to New York many times with groups and alone and being a Southern female who was "warned" about the dangers of NYC, I call BS on this bashing of New York City.

New Yorkers have always been every bit as polite and helpful to me as the people in any place I've ever visited.

And, frankly, after seeing the way New Yorkers came together after 9/11 ,I find this continued pettiness extremely shameful.

@9:13 - Many of us have been to NYC many times and have even lived there. The humorous stories we are reciting here pertain to the ignorance of city slickers who dismissively call the rest the USA "flyover country". Most New Yorkers are great people, and we wouldn't make fun of them if they would stop calling us redneck, Trump-humping, uneducated, racist rubes who sleep with our siblings. Just sayin... what goes around, comes around.

Well there absolutely ARE cows in Sardis, MS. And I didn't see it on Facebook.

Or, it was just another day in Manhattan. Do you really think that people in the Wall Street area (or wherever the protest was) have never seen grubby, ugly, badly-dressed people, before? Do you really think that such sightings are not daily events for them? In fact, anyone hanging-around long enough to have noticed that group, were probably, themselves, grubby, ugly, and badly-dressed,(homeless people, tourists, blue collar workers...). Everybody else, scurrying toward wherever they had business, probably was OBLIVIOUS.

And this is doubly-true, following the surreal unpleasantness of the past 16 months. At this point, Manhattanites have seen it ALL.

Every side has their crazies. The radical AOC/twitmobs make the noise but get Maher's party beat. The more sober liberals such as Maher who actually believe in freedom of thought and freedom of speech (which are not necessarily conservative or liberal values per se) are horrified at the Stalinist crap. Olberman wanted Jimmy Dore banned from all social media this week because Dore dared to criticize Olberman. Of course, Dore made fun of him. The other side has their nuts too. Remember that out of state rightwing nuts that ran mailers at the most conservative members of the Mississippi Legislature? The mailers said they protected the rape and murder of women because they didn't agree with their version of gun rights. Of course, they never ran mailers at Democrats.

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.
