Where is this unbottled water coming from?

Don't Drink the Water said...

Bwa ha ha, they lied. No bottled water for the sheeple, but you can bet that Prince Chowke has received lots of free bottled water, right? The sheeple can eat cake, right?

Has the free water been tested? It probably came out of a Jackistan hydrant, right?

Third world city = third world water distribution

Third world water said...

You can bet that this "free" unbottled water came from a hydrant or other non-potable source that hasn't been tested, right?

You can also bet that His Royal Lowness Prince Chowke has an ample supply of free city supplied Fiji or Dasani water delivered by his palace guard, right?

How many of y'all will use this latest FUBAR to help you decide to move out of this third world shit hole?

From today's C/L:

"In addition to water pressure, Jackson has also had water quality problems for years. Because of concerns about lead levels, the city has long told people to avoid using hot tap water for drinking or cooking and to only use filtered or bottled water for baby formula."

So the instant boil water notice is redundant. Do not drink the water, period, due to high lead levels!

Next they will suggest you go to the Rez to get your water. Just filter and boil it. Like someone else aid, Third World shit going on.

What time is the Balloon release?

Not to worry.

The Mair is monitoring everything very closely.

He has already appointed a commission to study
and develop a Holistic approach to solving the root causes.

What Jackistan needs is a blue ribbon commission, with weekly meetings alternating between Paris and the ski resorts in Banff, Alberta, Canada, to solve these problems, right?

As Prince Chowke takes a pro-active hands-on approach to managing Jackistan, he will preside over these meetings.

Is the mayor even in town???

Just go to Clinton, Pearl or Ridgeland and take a jug. It ain’t that hard. It’s not like water just disappeared only within Jackson city limits. Only the sense to pull it out of the ground disappeared.

When is the Federal government going to step in and end this?

I called the EPA several years ago and got no where.

I had dirt in my bath tub in Jackson. I moved to Madison. My water is clean here.

For what it's worth, the People's Advocacy Institute's tax exempt status was revoked earlier this year. But the website is still going strong.

NE Jackson needs to drill its own well-

Anonymous said...

I cannot imagine paying the taxes that NE Jxn residents pay and watching Chuck's smug face blame all infrastructure woes on racism.

Absolute insanity to live in such conditions willingly.

And the folks who cannot afford to move gladly vote for him in droves, so no pity there either.

Years of empty bow tie suits with absolutely no intellect or intent to actually manage. Residents voted solely on skin tone for years and this is what they get.

I recall a time when we aspired to elect people based on ability and not complexion. It seems we flipped the script a little too hard. Oh well.

NWE Jackson not only needs its own well, but it needs to become its own city. Regardless, quit voting for the criminal boy mayor.

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.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? 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. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
