Blame Yarber, right? Isn't that what the BabyChok Kush cult will say?

I hate it for my former neighbors, but I'm glad I got out.

This is the reason there was a fundraiser for Antar in Harlem last month. The people of the Malcolm X Center and the members of Democratic Socialist of America NYC raised funds to help in Antar's extensive, detailed plan to fix the sewers in Jackson. Of special concern was one of the city's last majoirty white neighborhoods. Antar is especially concerned about those citizens.

All of Jackson will look like West Capital Street after four years of social justice and human rights and no attention to the basic needs of the city.

Much like running marathons and being vegan, no one would leave Jackson if they were barred from telling everyone about it.

Heatherwood is a street in south Jackson right?

Those poor Heatherwood people, mid-income houses and expect Eastover treatment. Get in line!

Remember 10 years ago when Heatherwood residents believed they were immune to the changes Pear Orchard and Westbrook Rd experienced? They were wrong. All the while a large percentage of them refused to pay any HOA dues and resisted all attempts to decrease thru-traffic with gates and blocking intersections onto Ridgewood and Old Canton. Why resist changes proven to deter crime and maintain property values? Convenience. No one wanted their outlet street to be closed. So instead of driving an extra couple of blocks to get out of their hood, now they're losing equity and moving to the burbs to get out of the what's becoming the HOOD.

8:45, you forgot about CrossFit!

...how do you know someone is into CrossFit? They won't STFU about it...

I use to feel sorry for these people but so not any more . There were warned years to get out for things will just get worse. It is too late to get your money back but get what you can and just take a loss; get out now. What you lose on your house can be somewhat off set by sending your kids to public schools in Madison or Rankin counties.Nothing or no one can undo this mess and it will grow to be a bigger mess.

Why haven't I left? said...

9:33 AM
What you save on your water bill alone will offset the loss on your house.
When I left Jacktown 2 years ago my water, garbage, sewer bill went from $ 120.00 a month to $ 25.00 a month (Rankin County).

$95.00 saving per month X 12 = $ 1,140.00 per year
Auto tag $150.00(Hinds)vs.$75.00(Rankin) x 12 = $900.00 per year

Property Taxes half saving $ 2000.00 per year

Why haven't you already LEFT ???????????

Madison resident here. Can't really equate how some posters take a water line break and then complain about crime and it being the hood. That's a haters reach there. We have infrastructure issues in Madison, but that doesn't make it the hood or dangerous. You been down that road that cuts by Madison Central? Hasn't had a top coat put on it and it rocks and rolls like Riverside. How about the eye-sore road to nowhere near Cups? Sure we don't have the major issues Jackson does, but we are much newer. They are coming if we don't watch out. Infrastructure doesn't care about color or crime.

Heatherwood has been at odds with the city for years now, councilman after councilman...they are def looking for a change this coming election and those hereafter.

Yes, Jackson's infrastructure is deteriorating through the combination of age, lack of funding, lack of care, and expansive clay souls. This is a Molotov cocktail of ingredients which exceed infrastructure deterioration of other major cities (which is occurring) and lack of state funding doesnt help. However, there is still a high demand for nice properties in some areas of Jackson. Renovated homes in eastover are selling at close to $250 per square foot, Belhaven is $130+, many lefleur east properties sell in the $130+ range. Whereas new construction in Madison is selling between $130-$140 (reunion, gluckstadt, etc.) The demand is still there and your only going to sell for a loss if you don't do your due diligence going into it, just like anywhere else. This indicates that regardless of infrastructure, politics, etc., people are going to choose to live in Jackson. Just some food for thought, since everything is getting worse and worse.

Do you exaggerate like that all the time? Compared to Riverside the road is as smooth as a baby's bottom. You must have not driven Riverside in the past decade.

No such neighborhood as 'lefleur east'.

I thought this post was about the BackPage.com bust. Drats.

Louis LeFleur said...

No, 10:57, Lefleur East isn't a neighborbood, but it does incorporate ALL the NE Jackson neighborhoods between Lakeland and Old Canton that are east of I-55.

I moved from Madison to Heatherwood. Hate on, haters.

Anyone who uses the word "hate" or "hater" should have an tattoo on their forehead reading, "I have no rational thoughts."

I moved from Madison to Fondren. I'm so much better than you.

An atheist, a vegan, and a Cross Fitter walk into a bar. Which is the first one to brag about their lifestyle while reaching for a copy of the JFP?

I moved from Bridgewater to Presidential Hills. I win, chumps.

This house votes STOKES! said...

I have found a perfect picture of Jackson city politics. Use Google Maps and do a street view on 1323 Weeks Street (by Hawkins Field), then zoom in on the house on the north side of the street.

I think support for BabyChok goes without saying, but are they supporting Kennufy or LaRita?

I moved from Madison to NEJackson. Hate on.

Does Jackson currently have indoor plumbing? i attended a party in Eastover a month or so ago and the only place to "relieve" oneself was a porta-john....

Anonymous said...

At 3 square feet, that was a $750 porta-john you were fortunate enough to piss in. The neanderthals in Madison and Rankin counties would just have guests piss in their yard.

Sold our house in Jackson in 2001 and moved to Madison....best thing we ever did. That being said, I'm happy to know that there are still folks willing to live there to try and delay its inevitable dystopian fate. Martyrdom can be admirable and, in this case, useful ....

Anonymous said...

Ahhh...but the "neanderthals" in Madison and Rankin counties HAVE indoor plumbing...get it?

Anonymous said...

Ahhh, the 'neandethrals"in Jackson have indoor plumbing as well. Check out that Eastover house that was referenced - probably could fit yours and three others into it, much less into the yard.

The NE Jackson folks were preparing for a 'possible' event that didn't occur - the repair of a major water line, that could possibly leave them without water for a few hours. It didn't happen. But, water lines break most everywhere, even in much 'nicer' areas than newly stuccoed Madison subdivisions.

Be glad you were invited to the event - you must have been impressed to be included, since this is the third time you have posted at different items about your experience. Or maybe you weren't invited, maybe you were working with the wait staff or bartending for the NE Jackson soiree.

4:36 for the win.

That is nothing I moved from Madison down to West Capitol Streeks. Beat that home boy... I now vote for Brother Kenny... I'm down with the struggle...

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

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.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. 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.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
