Why do we call this gentleman a bum, but when children stand at the corner begging for money for their baseball or soccer team its called charity???

I’d give him a $5 bill for honesty. Not to mention he’s be a better mayor than Lumumba.

This man is not a bum. He is EXPERIENCING VAGRANCY.

",,,he’s be a better mayor than Lumumba."

So would a warm ass beer. Or a bucket of the results from consuming it.

You can thank the ACLU for all the vagrants on the street corners. They forced the city council to vote down the no panhandling ordinance. There is nothing the police can do about them.

So you are comparing an able bodied, grown man who chooses not to work to school aged students who are not of working age?
The next time you see young folk trying to raise money for a needy cause, whip out that checkbook and make those dreams happen. Remember, it is not illegal to put your money where your mouth is.

8:12 Pm, What age do you call not of working age? Seems like many kids today think the age should be 35. There are always jobs available for people who are willing to work, age should not be a barrier. Kids have found out that doing the same thing this man is doing will work on some people. They are just getting an early start.

Do you honestly not know the difference between panhandling and fundraising?

You obviously work for the Jackson free press
Only a liberal would say such a thing!!! Just like I’ve learned after being in this country legally for 22 years only liberals compare illegal boarder crosses to legals… pisses me off. I came here from a country in Eastern Europe. I can’t stand American liberal ideology. It’s foreign to me that elitist view.

Encountered a guy propped against a fence in Seattle once who had a sign that said "Honestly, I need a drink."

8:29 AM, Both are pretty much the same thing. Asking someone else for money so you can do what you want without working for it. I know your little darlings are just trying to save the world. Why don't you foot the bill?

Dear Ebenezer

A legitimate fundraising effort is typically selling something of value, with a percentage going to the charity or organization needing the funds. The volunteers usually get nothing out of it, except for a sense of accomplishment. Maybe some new gear if it's for a sports team.

Panhandling is begging for money for self sustenance, or to feed a habit.

Begging = redistribution of wealth.

11:29 AM, The something of value is the key to both scams. At least the honest man told you what he was wanting. A fundraising effort is usually something someone want for themselves but wants others to do all of the work while they steal the glory. There isn't any difference except for the price. A cold beer is not that expensive. The other scam can be very costly with the majority of the money going to the person who set it up.

Why can't a sports team buy their own equipment? Sports equipment can be costly. Much higher than a cold beer. Both the honest man and the sportsmen will enjoy what they want. Both expect others to pay for what they want. The only difference is the price.

Panhaldling has nothing to do with the city council or the ACLU. The courts have long since ruled this activity is protected by the first amendment.

Bad photoshop. This old meme has been around for at least a decade, but usually involves a different photo and is reported as being from Las Vegas.

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.
