This past Wednesday, Kingfish at Jackson Jambalaya linked a post at Jackson Fool Press posted by DonnerK about why folks leave Jackson. I want to point out how fucking stupid you have to be to be "Progressive" using DonnerK's post for the LITERAL example.
Here is the post at the Fondren Bugle. Trust me, if you built a spreadsheet to tabulate the TOTAL CUMULATIVE IQ of the people that read and comment at the Jackson Free Press, your spreadsheet would only need single digits and use only addition. The posts there make Cynthia Tucker at the AJC appear to be a rocket scientist, because even though Tucker's arguments are ridiculously stupid, at least there is a recurring theme. RAAAAACISM!!!
The topic: Why do people leave Jackson?
1. Fear of crime.
2. Belief that public officials are inept, etc.
3. Too many black people.
4. Don't like city living (too many people, too noisy, etc.)
5. Belief that public schools are unsuitable.
6. Can't find a fulfilling job.
7. Can't find a job, or one that pays enough.
9. Too many potholes.
10. City residents not tolerant enough of ___________ (gays, Republicans, crazy artists).
11. Want to live in a more creative, artsy city with those opportunities.
12. City too liberal/Democratic.
15. Fear of flooding.
16. Going to school somewhere else.
Do we see the problem here? Lemme help. "Fear of crime" is not an issue. CRIME is an issue. "Progressives" never pay any attention to actual results or outcomes, they only focus on INTENT or the emotional aspects of stuff. You see, words actually mean something. The issue for DonnerK is FEAR. "Of crime" describes that fear.
Intelligent people do not leave Jackson because of fear, they leave because of the much higher crime rate.
Of course, if you are an idiot, maybe fear is your motivation. Also, I found out that there are children getting MUGGED waiting on the school bus in Jackson. Does the emotion FEAR enter into the equation? Certainly, but when a normal person talks about why they are moving from Jacktroit, they say "I am moving because the crime rates are continually going up." One is an emotional reaction and one is a logical reaction to a real world problem. Of course, Jackson is run by "Progressives" so it is going to "progress" just like those other "Progressive" cities. Into the shitter.
Number two is a "Belief that public officials are inept." No, those public officials ARE INEPT. That is kinda why y'all elected Frank over Harvey the last go around, because Harvey was an incompetent BOOB. Of course, the minute Frank was sworn in, The Bugle went all in trashing the shit out of him. So did Ronnie Agnew at the Clarion-Ledger, but that is beside the point. And now, since that was in The Ago and the "Progressive" mental Etch-A-Sketch was turned over and shaken, Harvey is right back where he was when y'all threw him out of office for his incompetence. Wow, same thing, but different results are expected? MORONS.
DonnerK's third point about the too many black folks well, that is simply stupid. The black folks are getting the Hell out, too!!! Because of the CRIME!
On number four, if Jackson's population continues to elect the morons that they have for the past thirty years, the number of people is not going to be an issue because everyone is fleeing! Therefore the noise is going to plummet. That problem is solved by continuing to elect "Progressives."
Here's five: "Belief that public schools are unsuitable." Again, it is not a matter of a "belief," it is a matter of HOLY SHIT!!! the schools in Jacktroit are terrible. Maybe it is because of our "belief that public officials are inept?"
NO. It is because those dumbasses ARE inept.
Six and seven are the EXACT same thing. Blah, blah, blah...it could be that there are no jobs in Jackson because the tax rates are much higher than surrounding areas? Maybe?
Fifteen, same thing. FEAR of flooding. Well, actual flooding could devalue your property and stuff, but that FEAR!!!
As a disclaimer, I have never met DonnerK and probably never will because I am forty-six years old and she only hangs out with college students. So, I cannot make a definitive statement about her INTENT, but I can say that she is a dumbass because she admits that she is a "Progressive."
Stereotypes become stereotypes for a reason, you know? "Progressives" become stereotyped as morons because "Progressive" ideology is so freaking stupid.
Sidebar: QB posted a few of his/her LEGITIMATE reasons for leaving Jackson. The word FEAR did not occur once in the list. Remember my comment above about what intelligent people say?
44. City will not cut back overgrowth around city-owned creek/ditch near house.
45. City will not clear storm drains on street, causing water to pool and cause erosion.
46. Streetlights do not work.
47. Car burglarized 3 times while parked in carport.
48. Wife's car burglarized while parked in carport.
49. Advised by police officer to not walk dog past 9:00 PM.
50. JPD officer refused to take fingerprints on 3 out of 4 auto burglaries.
51. Water bill increased dramatically.
52. Insurance rates are higher in Jackson zip code.
53. Having to pay for private security patrol just to provide minimum protection.
54. Kenneth Stokes.
55. Economic growth being choked by the levee board.
56. Aggressive panhandlers downtown.
57. Stabbing at King Edward bar.
The very next comment was from an obvious "Progressive" because it was so stupid, "is #50 hearsay?"
Yeah, dumbass, it is hearsay when I state plainly and definitively that my cars have been broken into on four occasions and the JPD refused to take fingerprints on three of those occasions. How is it even possible that "Progressives" have not been naturally selected OUT of the gene pool?
Please take the time to comment.
