By god this is far my most visited website. I think some of these post are race bait and no different than what the water clowns are preaching about white folks. Honestly, I bet you’ll argue that this post is at its core just a public service announcement. I understand most if not all your post but please stop giving these misleaders a soapbox and stop fueling the haters, who I don’t blame, with bait to drive traffic and colorful comments.

I also believe my electric bill is inaccurate.
I also Believe my gas bill is inaccurate.
I also believe my phone bill is inaccurate.
I also believe my student loan was a gift.

Where's my relief?

(What about free transportation to the meeting?)

Everything that is ‘free’ in society is actually paid for by an honest working person’s taxes or extra charges. Think about it, nothing in life is really ‘free’, it’s just paid for by someone else who didn’t lie, cheat, or deceive to get it for ‘free’.

From where comes the money to pay for this? Soros?

Quiet a tandem aren't they? The brother causes the problems, blames them on whitey, and the sister shows up to rally the troops for a great cause. Straight out of the Jesse Jackson\Al Sharpton playbook. Racism is big business folks. Unfortunately, those who suffer from the real effects of actual racism are just pawns in this game.

From the Promise Pay website:

PromisePay for Utilities
Promise increases revenue for utilities by helping their customers tackle existing debt and avoid service interruptions. We offer flexible payment plans, simple relief distribution, and easy online account lookup to help struggling customers get back on track. Our sophisticated marketing and outreach tools make it easy for customers to enroll and stay current, and we offer a broad range of traditional and alternative payment methods.

Our Relief Portal allows for the rapid distribution of financial assistance funds from any source, including the Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP) or CARES Act funding. Promise provides an easy, mobile-friendly experience for customers to determine eligibility that can be instantly applied to their balance.

So they are going to use Cares Act or LIHWAP to get people funded to use for the water billing situation that the City of Jackson created along with Siemens? Are they going to use the Siemens money to get the water situation fixed? Is anyone going to hold Lumumba accountable for gifting his friends 1/3 of the Siemens settlement money($30mil) for a pretty cut and dry case? I am assuming the majority of NE Jackson won't qualify to have their bills taken care of? Promise pay mentions the CARES Act. This has zero to do with Covid. Nothing.

If someone would actually look at the accounts, they would find some of the highest past due accounts are in Eastover.

God I hope so 11:07.

If I lived in Eastover I would not pay a dime. I'd straight pipe or just not bother with payment like the poors do.

The pal I know in Eastover has his money manager stroke checks to COJ for insanely high water bills. The kind that would make me act like a Wing Stop customer and demand they be corrected.
But, he has what my dad called "stupid money" and he cant be bothered to deal with the minutia.

So again, I hope at least SOME of his neighbors are in the camp that refuses to pay for that toxic unreliable sludge they call water.

In a WAPT article, Ted says that customers who are above a certain income threshold are not eligible for this program, but nowhere on the People's Relief Campaign website does it mention that. So what is it? A program to help right the wrongs of inaccurate billing for all or just for some? At least be upfront about it on the website.

WAPT: "Henifin and his team are projecting 80,000 people could have their bills wiped clean under the program. To put that into perspective, there is plenty of money for a city that has only 60,000 water customers. Not everyone will qualify, but Henifin said he's confident a large portion of water customers will get some part of the money.

'If you're above a certain income, we can't apply federal dollars to those accounts," Henifin said. "We've got a limited amount of money, and we're going to focus on the residential side as much as we can initially, but nobody will be turned away without answers.'"

People's Relief Campaign: "Who is eligible?
All JXN Water customers who have past due water or wastewater debt from before December 1, 2022 and believe they have an inaccurate bill."

Henifin is a total joke. Just watch how little he actually accomplishes before finding some convenient off-ramp.

Henifin and his team are projecting 80,000 people could have their bills wiped clean under the program. To put that into perspective, there is plenty of money for a city that has only 60,000 water customers. So what happened with the math where the mayor of COJ reported 150,000 customers on National News Chanel’s. So now if persons apply for past due bills through federal money, will some of those $ also apply to garbage & sewage also. Next question is if residents were not getting bills for years, how can they apply for relief? This is BS plain & simple!

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.

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.
