Trash Talk Tomorrow

Update (7/12, 8:20 AM): Mayor Lumumba postponed the presser.  

Jackson Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba will hold a press conference tomorrow at 12:45 at City Hall to discuss the garbage contract.

I didn't think there was a contract, right. I guess Chowke gonna say there is a contract, right.

Holding a press conference to discuss a garbage contract...or lack there of, you can't make this sh-t up!

He just can't let it go can he?
What is it about Richards that he's so obsessed with?

Can't wait to hear these pearls of wisdom.

Justice for Trash said...

Think about how better off the city would be if Sir Choke simply did nothing and left the trash alone. 100% self inflicted crises. And just think about the energy, effort and political capital this fool has wasted on a losing issue. If at first you don’t succeed, double down like a stubborn fool.

Stokes says he's proposing resolution to require Lamumba to finance appeal, if any, with his own money. Then, if he wins, City reimburses him.

Stokes says now it's time to issue new RFP and not to pay Richard's because there is no contract.

This 3rd rate lawyer we have as a mayor is going to announce that he’s going to pay for the legal fees

As a good Baptist, 12:45 is too early for me to play the drinking game where I take a sip every time the boy mayor says “right?”

Newsflash said...

Blame whitey, Republicans, state not giving them money, city council
Blame it on the heat, climate change
Don't talk about crime, 77 and counting, gangs, car jackings, copper steeling
Don't talk about lack of police officers
Don't talk about lake of clean, clear water with pressure, lack of staffing
Don't talk about his trips out of state on city payroll
Don't talk about camera crime center (millions $) or credible messengers
Don't talk about his sister's $ windfalls
Don't talk about potholes, sewer discharges, flood erosion
Don't talk about the zoo

It will be more lies for the gullible sheeple of Jackistan. He will bad mouth the council and bloviate how he is taking this to the highest court.

Y'all can easily tell when Chowke be lying; his lips are moving, right?

Show me da money said...

That “contribution” from Richard’s must have been substantial.

Chowke - "I know what's best for me .. uh ... for this city! Trust me, or else!"

We had 25 years of perfect service from Waste Management where we live. One day sometime in the remote past they didn't make it because of severe (frozen) weather.

Now we have these idiots (Richards) and they have been late or non-existent on two or three pickups in less than three months of service.

The news last night said huge areas of Jackson were not served this past week because one of the service workers from Richard's had heat exhaustion. What a lousy excuse and one that Waste Management never had in over twenty five years.

Rates are up and service has crumbled. How can the mayor be happy with that?

Anonymous said...

What the Council needs to do is approve the Richards contract. They pick up my garbage every day they are supposed to, just like WM did. Look, somebody has to pick up our garbage. It is obvious Mayor Lumumba will never proffer to the Council a contract with WM.

Approve the damn contract and end this silliness. I see the Richards contract is on the agenda for today’s Council meeting.

The man can't get it in his thick head that THERE IS NO GARBAGE CONTRACT !

Who gets him first, the LA mob, the police or the guys in the white coats?

Kingfish said...

Except the City Council formally notified RD it would not pay for any work done BEFORE RD started working.

Krusatyr said...

Lil Choke, our marxist mayor, made himself and Richard's enemies of the City plus Jackson City Council has to maintain legal protocol and keep fake mayor on a short leash or corruption will triple. A new RFP is necessary to proceed.

I remember a few years ago we had weeks of 100 degree weather and Waste Management never missed a day...ever. I'd love to know why hizzoner is so obsessed with Richards

As an aside on Richards Disposal for years with WM I had 0 issues with damage to my cans. After Richards took over it looks like a bear mauled my cans, my metal can is currently smashed into an oval with a lid bent beyond repair courtesy of Richards Disposal...

8:50 I mowed your lawn yesterday. I will stop by for the money later today.

Richards has picked my garbage in south Jackson with no problem. Just please just get done.

Anonymous said...

Just curious - where is Richards storing their garbage trucks now? I know several weeks ago they were told to park the trucks somewhere other than Hawkins field. I haven't heard a peep about where, or if, they have re-located since then.

Mayor needs to issue a new RFP for 2x per week trash pickup with no humongous carts. Then he needs to present the lowest and best bid to the council for approval.

Trying to ram through a more expensive bid with crappy service is WRONG.
Trying to make a contractor work for free is WRONG.
Trying to force the council to pay someone who has no contract is WRONG and probably illegal for them to do.
Continually creating situations where citizen’s trash isn’t picked up is WRONG.
Don’t even THINK about approving a lowball bid from Richard’s and then trying to give them a change order for more $$ afterwards!!

Mayor needs to follow the fucking rules and DO HIS JOB!!!

Presser postponed. Prince Chowke couldn't handle the truth as presented on this blog.

Mayor Lumumba doesn’t read or give a damn about this little racist gossip blog. He receives nothing but respect and praise from national publications such as Bloomberg.

Kingfish said...

I'll bite. How exactly is this a gossip blog?

You also left out NPR, the Washington Post, New York Times, Politico, and CNN.

Because you pick on targets of color with your personal vendetta.

Just like Lumumba, openly and unashamedly lying.

Lumumba directly referenced this blog just a few weeks ago because he doesn't like the truth of things to see light.

Secondly, he lies and gets praise (no respect) from national publications? At the expense of his constituents, no less, and you want to celebrate that?

Clown World

If you'll remember, he's not exactly been kind to a certain white lady who allegedly occupies the Attorney General's office (sometimes).

Go whine somewhere else.

12:15, lol at your comment, as if anyone at Bloomberg has clue about anything to do with the mayor other than what his PR people tell them.

Anonymous said...

Has Richards Disposal been paid anything yet for the work done? If not, why exactly are they picking up garbage?

Anonymous said...

Oh it is very clear that Kingfish is also a misogynist

Krusatyr said...

Little Richard's has been deceived by our punk mayor, a professional hornswoggler, who, without Council approval, gave the trash company a "proceed" letter of approval, which letter could be Lil Choke's choker.

Let me tell you something, 12:28! I live in Jackson! If you live here you know nearly ALL the citizens of Jackson are people of color!

I've been without clean water for 2 weeks AGAIN!
I can't tell IF or WHEN my fucking trash will be picked up since the mayor started his mess!
Call 911 and no one answers!
Roads not driveable!
Raw sewage everywhere!
Trash everywhere!
Criminals everywhere!!!

This is the worst fucking mayor in the entire country!! I hope to God SOMEONE picks on him!

Stop licking that fool's shoes, he don't give a shit about any of us - colored or not!

He promised to TRANSFORM THIS CITY! Well congratulations! Turned it into a fucking ghetto in a few years flat!!!

If y'all aren't part of the solution, you are part of the problem.

Posting on here is often informative, but it won't fix a damn thing. Y'all will need to get organized and protest at city hal, lean on the lame media, maybe buy billboard space, but posting here shows what cowards y'all are.

Gotta admire your passion, now find us a respectable, practical candidate to vote for mayor.

"Targets of color" or "persons of color" are terms that usurp and hijack the political agency of other non-whites, except the despised Asians and Indians, but especially Latinos, by Democrat race mongers in an effort to make their voices and opinions appear as representing a larger constituency than they actually (may)represent.

No other races or colors acceded to be represented in this way.

No it doesn't. Bullshit.

Anonymous said...

Crowd hollering for the Council to just move on and allow Lumumba to focus on the water problems obviously don't realize they are actually condemning his ability to actually do the job. Alluding he can only focus on one thing at a time only reinforces the accepted understanding that he is incompetent.

Most recent RFP already covered this mode of service. No new RFP needed. Please catch up.

The only way sting on this page is cowardly is if you are one of the majority who posts under "anonymous". I don't.

Can any of the race baiters on this blog tell me how it is racist for seven people on the City Council to oppose this black mayor when five of the members are black? Especially when one of the two whites on the City Council the mayor's lap dog?

So, what's next? How long before the mayor speaks up? Will Richard's continue collecting trash without being paid?

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.
