Initiative & Referendum Bill Only on Second "Dead"

 Leftenent Governor Hibbit Hosemann issued the following statement. 

At my request, the Senate passed a suspension resolution to revive the initiative process this morning. House leadership has also expressed a desire to continue working on this issue. If the House agrees to this suspension resolution, the Senate will again address legislation providing Mississippians with direct input on policy. We are hopeful to come to a final agreement before sine die.”

Who cares? Election year pandering after he was responsible for killing it.

Frankly, I was plenty happy for it to die - but at the same time wouldn't care if it passed with some of the reasonable changes that were made to both chambers' bill.

While I was ok with seeing it die, this trying to play both sides of the fence by Hosemann doesn't endear me to him. 2:17 has it right.

Hosemann is an old school Mississippi Democrat in RINOs clothes. Cut from the same cloth as Ronnie Musgrove and Ray Mabus. I imagine they meet up and enjoy the cherry blossoms when they bloom in DC.

They’ve already found out the voters don’t vote how the politicians want them to. This has zero chance of passing.

This is not unprecedented , these legislators don’t mind spending mine and your money to spend more time with the female lobbying hair dressers, and various other predominately female lobbyist. Enjoy yourselves, the working people are paying for it.. We are not financially ranked 50 th in the states for no reason. I hope your wives don’t have access to this information..

There goes the same 'we are 50th' guy again. Like clockwork @8:10.

By the way...for those of you who either say 'let it die' or 'who cares', remember that this state would not have (court unchallenged) voter ID requirements were it not for the initiative and referendum process. The legislature had refused to take it up for years...the people and the process worked. The only people opposed today are dead democrats.

Kingfish is asleep at the wheel again this morning.

Obviously 'Da Speakah' does not plan to ever run again for public office.

This, coupled with his 'flag stand', will be his legacy and seal his fate.

May his legacy live forever and his arrogance never be forgotten.

The old flag is dead and isn’t coming back . There hasn’t been a legislator beat over voting to change it nor will there be .

8:10 - if you are dumb engough to think that Mississippi is the only state where there are femaile lobbyiest, and that Mississippi is the only state where their legislators are subject to the lures of "femail" lobbyiests among their legislators - then you are just pure de c cc stupid.

Females are competent individuals - they can make their case among the populist just as good as the male lobbyists. They have much more to sell - their clients position, their clients thoughts, whatever - as do their male counterparts.

And, BTW, this is being posted by a lobbyists in the MS legislature. A MALE lobbyists, if that matters to you.

The results of legislation is not determined, despite your derainged thoughts,on the sex of the lobbyist - or normally on the personnage of the lobbyist.

But thank you for your sexist, ignornant, and stupid, 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.

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.
