Agenda Today: Trash Talk

 The Jackson City Council will discuss yet again the garbage contract.  The agenda states: 

The Mayor will probably explain yet again why he wants to force 96-gallon garbage "carts" down everyone's throats.

Meanwhile, WLBT reported some rather curious features of the dbe "partners" in the proposed garbage contract: 

 A company the city of Jackson previously sued to recoup thousands of dollars it had “inadvertently paid” for helping move its water billing software to the cloud is one of the minority contractors listed on a trash-hauling contract for Richard’s Disposal.

Last week, the city council voted down a proposal to hire Richard’s for residential waste collection services....

The Equal Business Opportunity (EBO) Plan for Richard’s shows that the New Orleans-based firm would subcontract with two EBO companies located in the capital city: Expert Professional Solutions Inc. (XPS), and H&P Construction and Consulting.

H&P would provide consulting services, while XPS would provide “information technology,” according to the document. Article.

H&P is owned by Mike Brown and Patrick Walker of Jackson.  Willie Webster owns XPS.   The owner of Richard's Disposal, Alvin Richard, Jr. is a minority.

The City of Jackson is the most racist outfit in existence. They would rather eat shit than do business with a non minority. Too bad because look at where that has gotten them!

Yes, from a previous theft that Shad has yet to look into.

96 gal containers are big enough for a squatting porta-toilet and will resemble them if blue. Every homeowner who pays their trash bill already has a couple of suitable trash cans which fit in their garage.

Slum lords who have nasty, littering renters, not other rate payers, should be responsible for providing their tenants with a normal sized trash can.

No wonder the mayor's minions conveniently couldn't recall the minority contractors in Richatds' proposal when pressed by a councilmember earlier this month. They somehow didn't have that info in front of them, even though they attended the council meeting to support the mayor's recommendation of Richard's to collect the city's garbage.

Richard's sourcing the cans from a white company in Michigan.

Howdie Doodie is just as terrified of being accused of racism as this blog owner and yourself.

The sheer volume of meetings and attention given to making sure the trash buddies get the contract to steal more tax dollars, compared to the amount of effort expended to curb murder, crime and infrastructure failure is absolutely comical.

You cannot make this up!

Enjoy the clown show and insane priorities Jackson. You definitely deserve it!

Why shouldn’t whites be the minority contractors? They are definitely a minority in the city and are under represented.

How come this drags on ? Shad says he just needs a report right ? Well ? I am just a dude and can see the corruption. And I bet there is a paper trail from here to Atlanta that proves it.

You don't need a bunch of consulting and IT to pick up garbage. You need garbage trucks, drivers, some dudes hanging off the back of the truck, and a landfill to take the stuff.

It was just discussed by Councilman Banks that the city reaches out regularly to city venders to pay for lunches, parties,gifts & other items for city officials and city employees. Memo to City Officials & employees: This is against the law!!!!

Can someone please just take over!?! Anyone?!?! Why is so much talk about the carts? Must be a lot of margin in the carts. Damn, I’m so tired of hearing that word. Almost as bad as “transitory”. Clearly, this company can’t do the job. Just read the reviews/articles in New Orleans. It is what it is. As far as Waste Management, the mayor clearly was “disrespected” by a national company that has shown they can do the job. This mayor is a child. No, that’s not a racist comment. It’s a maturity comment.

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.
