Heather Goes to Washington...

Mississippi's longest serving congressman, Bennie Thompson, is likely to be challenged in 2012 by a fellow Democrat with name recognition in the Delta.Greenville Mayor Heather McTeer Hudson told her hometown newspaper, the Delta Democrat Times, that she's preparing to run in the 2nd Congressional District, where Thompson has been the incumbent since 1993.

Thompson, the ranking Democrat on the House Homeland Security Committee, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he is seeking re-election next year.

"The good thing about America is that people have choices," Thompson said in a written statement. "Those who are qualified and wish to seek public office can. I am busy protecting the district's interests in the upcoming Farm Bill, and fighting to save Head Start, Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security from Republicans who are trying to end those programs.

"I look forward to continuing my work with local elected officials who have demonstrated a commitment to bettering their communities," he said.

Hudson was attending a fundraiser Monday night in New York and said she has hired a national Democratic political strategist and pollster, Celinda Lake.

Thompson faced his last significant Democratic primary challenge in 2006, when he received about 65 percent of the vote to defeat state Rep. Chuck Espy of Clarksdale.

Thompson won the 2006 general election with roughly the same margin over Republican Yvonne Brown, who had been mayor of Tchula.

Mississippi has four U.S. House districts and the 2nd is the only one with a majority-black population. Historical voting patterns show Republicans struggle in the district. In November, Thompson easily defeated Bill Marcy of Vicksburg, a black Republican who courted tea party voters.

Thompson and Hudson are black, as are Espy and Brown.

Thompson ended 2010 with nearly $1.7 million in his campaign fund, according to his latest report filed on the Federal Election Commission website.

Kathie Stromile Golden, a political scientist and head of the international studies program at Mississippi Valley State University, said Tuesday that no member of Congress, including Thompson, should be surprised by drawing an opponent.

"I think quite a few people will be excited by the fact that here you have a black female who currently holds a political position who has some national exposure," Stromile Golden said of Hudson. "She's known within the Democratic Party. She's young and she's energetic."

Hudson, who's now in her mid 30s, was elected Greenville mayor in 2003 and 2007. She said in January that she won't seek a third term.

Thompson, 63, was chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee from 2006 through 2010, when Democrats held the majority. With Republicans now in the majority, he's the committee's ranking Democrat.

The 2nd District is more than 200 miles long, stretching through the cotton and soybean fields and catfish pond areas of the historically poor Delta. The district wanders through the Civil War battlefields of Vicksburg and down past the Grand Gulf nuclear power plant in the woods outside Port Gibson. The district also encompasses most of Jackson.

If anyone in Mississippi could beat Bennie Thompson, it might well be Heather... particularly after a few phone calls from "Daddy". She has all of the qualifications: black, female, rich daddy with political pull, and a proven track record of incompetence in city government! What more could we wish for?

Bennie takes a more "optimistic" view of this situation stating that in America, we still have choices... and he is quite right. As the political satirist Lewis Black so aptly states, "we now have a choice between two bowls of shit."

Either way, for Greenville, this will be a win-win decision. We will have proven that "black, female, and well educated" are not the essential qualities of a good mayor for our city... and we will save thousands of tax-payer dollars on eliminating body guards!

"Heather goes to Washington"... what great potential for a movie sequel! I can see it now as the black screen illuminates into early dawn... the sun rising in the distance as the camera pans slowly onto a parked pick-up truck in Arlington... Cemetery...

Conventional wisdom says that the higher your degree, the higher your salary. A study by the College Board shows that the median salary of a worker holding a bachelor's degree is more than $20,000 higher than the salary of a high school graduate.

While four-year college grads earn 66 percent more than the average high school grad, those with two-year degrees could be catching up. According to a report by the Florida Education and Training Placement Information Program, a nonprofit dedicated to state education and job training research, associate degree and certificate grads in certain fields landed higher starting salaries than the state's four-year public college grads.

According to the College Board, the median education debt for two-year degree holders was $7,130 in 2008 -- the most recent year for which statistics are available. This compares to an average of $24,000 in student loan debt for those who completed bachelor's degrees in 2009, according to the Project on Student Debt.

With more years in the workforce and far less student debt to deal with, two-year grads can come out with a higher lifetime worth than their four-year counterparts.

The person who did the stealing was not in office when she was elected mayor. The major didnt put anyone there, that is an elected position. No one wanted to acknowledge the real thief, now that would be a real embarrassment for the community. My question is why wasnt she indicted. When they appointed her to fill in the position they quickly changed their minds when they found out she was the one.

Please, clarify?

Households Earning $200,000+: 1.54% (Lowest)
Population Living Below Poverty Line: 21.90% (Highest)

Mississippi has the greatest percentage of poor people in the nation, 21.9%. The state has the greatest percentage of households making below $30,000 a year, 42.53%, and the smallest percentage of households making $200,000 or more, 1.54%. Suffice it to say, poverty is a major issue in Mississippi and it is getting worse. From 2007 to 2009, the state’s poverty rate increased from 20.6% to 21.9%.

Early indications reveal that the voters of Greenville are not interested in change.
The early poll that is being run by WXVT indicates Gines and McGee as leaders in the poll.
We have had almost 8 yrs of Gines and McGee serving on the Greenville City council and neither have shown the ability to be a true leader with ability to make a difference.
It totally amazes me that we have a candidate with a strong business background and proven manager of finance that loves the city and our citizens cannot vote along the lines of a candidate that is the most qualified. Is it hard to figure out this candidate is a Proven retired banker and is running because he wants to make a difference and not because he needs a pay check.
I just hope our citizens take a look at qualifications when they go to the polls and instead of voting for a friend or a color they vote for qualification and change. That is what i am going to do because if i were voting for the person i liked the most i personally would vote for Kenny or Carl. They are both fine people but there is a better qualified candidate in this mayoral race.
Open your Eyes Greenville because this is a turning point for Greenville.

A private study of what went wrong to cause G'villes decline has stated that back in the early 70's the private schools started the decline of G'ville. It went on to say that if the whites hadn't fled the public school system that G'ville would have probably grown to be a much larger city. But the whites fleeing the public school system caused medium income families no choice but to finally move from G'ville which started white flight from G'ville.

There can be no future in G'ville when 85% is black. No major restaurant chain or national company will ever come to G'ville when the workforce is not trainable or willing to work. The company's have been warned about G'ville from others being here and failed. Thats a fact. So the only way for G'ville to go is deeper into decline until it is beyond help. Thats about 4 to 5 years down the road from the study if the economy in the delta steadily declines. So if you are the last one caught in G'ville please turn off the lights.

Too late for that. G'ville should have done like cleveland and stood their ground. G'ville was set up perfectly with solomon, matty akin and greenville high but didn't do like cleveland did. G'ville folded and thus started the white flight from public school system. Anyway there aren't enough whites to support building new schools. There aren't enough people paying taxes to even get started. Just look at that big building known as GHES. It is barely used and not very old and is about to fall down. It's just too late for G'ville and we all need to just realize there is no hope to revive it. Anything G'ville does is always half ass. Just look at the convention center. Who in there right mind turned down Delta State to be put in G'ville. Then we let Moorehead get away. Then we voted down a coloseum to be built. Why is G'ville population steadily declining? Because there is no hope and no future or oppotunities here for what we have to pay for. Why has the last 4 presidents called the delta the most poverty striken area in the United States? BECAUSE IT IS THE TRUTH!!!!

Florida Gov. Rick Scott has signed new legislation requiring welfare applicants to take drug-screening tests.

The new law, which goes into effect July 1, will require the Florida Department of Children and Family Services to perform drug tests on adults applying to the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program. Welfare recipients will be responsible for the cost of the screening, but will regain the money in their assistance if they qualify. Those who fail the drug test may deligate another person to receive the benefits on behalf of their children.

Those who fail the drug test may deligate another person to receive the benefits on behalf of their children.



Gov. Rick Scott says it’s “’unfair for Florida taxpayers to subsidize drug addiction,’” as noted by CNN. "’It's the right thing for citizens of this state that need public assistance. We don't want to waste tax dollars. And also, we want to give people an incentive to not use drugs.’"

I agree with drug testing those that recieve a check from us the taxpayers for sitting at home spending it on drugs. That check is for the family to get pass hard times and not to spend on drugs. If the person does fail the drug test they should not be able to get further assistance period. If they are on drugs how are they going to look for a job and pass that drug test to become employed? The law makes perfect sense to everyone except those that use drugs. SILLY LAW... I THINK NOT!!!!

Any person being shot is totally inexcusable , black or white; so lets not make a big deal out of the color.
Most of the shooting in Greenville is black on black and is not with a pellet gun.
The old idea that a person because of color will get special treatment is just a old crutch and is a thing of the past.
If we don't put some qualified people in office ( such as Mayor ) we will never move forward. Will you vote for color or the MOST QUALIFIED CANDIDATE when you vote for the next Mayor ? It will be interesting to see if Greenville really wants change !

It will always be black against white in G'ville. I would bet my house which is worth half what it was 5 years ago that a white mayor will never be elected in G'ville again. The blacks are going to elect a black mayor no matter what white person runs for mayor. The numbers are against the whites. No way 20% white against 80% black will ever work in the G'villes favor to elect a white mayor. The whites have proven that we have moved on by electing a black president but the blacks have not moved on when it comes to racism. They still see color when it comes down to black against white. So if you are white in G'ville and thinking about running for any office don't waste your time or your money. Until private schools are eliminated and G'ville turns its public school system around G'ville is doomed!!!! There will always be a black against white until that happens.

So, tell me about Bennie Thompson getting the local Wal Mart manager fired so the in-house theft ring would not be proseccuted.

My daughter is one of the white workers at the new McDonalds. She is enjoying her job and the staff all get along well. The Manager is very sweet.

What did Bennie Thompson have to do with Wal-Mart???

The walmart theft ring is why most chain stores don't come to G'ville. Thats why most have left and warned others not to come to G'ville because of the stealing that goes on. Just ask Sears,Big Lots, Lowes (first one) etc.....

So, what about Alphe Wells????

WHY did quiznos close?

Anonymous said...

I,ll give you two guesses why Quiznos closed and the first one doesn't count. Theft by the employees that worked there. Same thing as every business that isn't run by the family.Theft by employees.

Who is Cheetah? Who is Tarzan? Need to know before I vote.

Anonymous said...

Cheetah is the cousin of our now great mayor. He hails from kenya, Africa where he met Tarzan, king of the jungle. After being in several movies and achieved stardom Cheetah has decided to get into politics once he heard about G'ville. He has said even a monkey could do a better job than his cousin so he decided to run for mayor and prove it .

Sitting together on a train was Obama, a Texan, a little old lady, and a young blonde girl with large breasts.


The train goes into a dark tunnel and a few seconds later there is the sound of a loud slap.. When the train emerges from the tunnel, Obama has a bright red hand print on his cheek. No one speaks.

The old lady thinks:
Obama must have groped the blonde in the dark, and she slapped him.

The blonde girl thinks:
Obama must have tried to grope me in the dark, but missed and fondled the old lady and she slapped him.

Obama thinks:
The Texan must have groped the blonde in the dark. She tried to slap him but missed and got me instead.

The Texan thinks:
I can't wait for another tunnel, so I can slap the shit out of Obama

It has just been reported that the head gardener at The White House has been dismissed after 28 years of loyal service to the many US presidents. When interviewed the gardener protested his innocence and said, "All I know is I was walking past the Oval Office and I asked, 'Has anyone seen the spade and the hoe?' The next thing I knew, my ass was fired."

He is still lame and boring. Lamb and King would be a more interesting story about their firing from the city today. Couple of men we will miss. Get your porta potties ready, you'll need em. The city was looking for a reason to get them out....We'll get some crony to take their jobs on an interim then permanent basis.

If Larry King clones himself and interviews himself on his show,

Turn out the lights, the party is over in G'ville. Our mayor is doing just what Obama is trying to do nationwide. She is trying to leave G'ville in such a bad way that it will be years before G'ville will ever be able to recover if it can at all. I predict more white flight so try not to be the last white left in G'ville. RUUUUNNN for the hills.

Our mayour is having a good time at taxpayer expense.....

Before Obama there was just one employee in the dept. of transportation making 170,000 dollars. Since his presidency there are now 1,670 dept. of transportation making 170,000 dollars a year. He created jobs for all his donors and close friends to the tune on 250,000 jobs in govt. Not one job for the private sector has come from anything he has said he would do. He even laughed about the shovel ready jobs he was going to create the other day on the news and got into big trouble for laughing. So next time around be smart you idiots that voted for the BUM....

A bus load of politicians were driving down a country road, when the bus ran off the road and crashed into a tree in an old farmer's field. The old farmer, after seeing what happened, went over to investigate. A few days later, the local sheriff came out looking for the missing politicos, saw the crashed bus, and asked the farmer where all the politicians had gone.

The farmer said, "I buried 'em all... out back."

The sheriff then asked, "Were they ALL dead?"

The old farmer replied, "Well, some of them said they weren't, but you know how them politicians lie."

The health and fitness magazine took quite a few factors into account when determining America’s Most Sedentary City—data on where and how often people exercise, the percentage of households that watch more than 15 hours of cable a week and buy more than 11 video games a year and the rate of deaths from deep-vein thrombosis (a condition that has been linked to extended periods of sitting).

Credit was also given for participation in physical activity as documented by the CDC in the past month.

6:38 Thats exactly what the person wants. To be such a christian you shouldn't even be indulging them. They were trying trying to get a rise out of someone and you fell for it just so they could prove their point. Now you need to get on your knees and apologize for being a hypocrite.

Does G'ville still celebrate the 4th like they did in the good ole days? 3days of boat races, ski shows, fireworks, bands,and carnival. I think not. You know why? Cause the apes around here don't know how to behave.

We were told so many lies about what the casino's were going to do for the city of G'ville. All the tax dollars they were going to be able to give us to better G'ville but instead of getting better all they did was take, take and take from us and now G'ville is the asshole of the south.With all the money these casino's have drained from G'ville and caused thousands to move away we should close their doors forever here in the city.

Anonymous said...

Where has the money from the casinos gone? Certainly not street improvement. I agree with you 4:45.

Anonymous said...

The casinos have given many jobs to the delta. Given millions of dollars to the city. The prob is the money given to the city has benn mismanaged. Maybe after the next city election we can use this money in a pos way in stead of sending the money out of town/country. The casinos are not the prob!!

Anonymous said...

I think we should be told how the casino money will be used. I don't think that millions have been misused or managed. I don't think G'ville is getting much like they thought at all. If it is millions then why are our streets this bad and the budget for the city is waaaaay behind. They certainly aren't spending it on infrastucture. The casino's lied and thats all it is. And about those jobs they have for us is a joke. There is so much turnover in people because the jobs suck. Barely minimum wage with terrible hours. Don't get me started on the crime and all the white flight the casino's have caused.

8:31 BS!!

9:39 The truth hurts doesn't it. The casino's have done nothing but drain this community of it's white citizens and their money. Just look at the tax dollars we have lost due to white flight from this city. You 9:39 are BS. IF you don't think otherwise. All you see in the casino's now are mostly blacks sitting for hours at the penny machines so they can stay cool and drink for free.

couldn't get the gate open at the garden center at walmart saturday.
New manager is awesome, couldn't get the door open.

couldn't get in or out of the garden center part of wal mart. nobody had key to gate.

Anonymous said...

So that is automatically the new guys fault? Perhaps someone misplaced the key. Have you ever misplaced your car keys? Geez, find something a little more worthwhile to bitch about.

Anonymous said...

Maybe the new guy is tired of the sorry ass people stealing from walmart by knowing the checkout person and walking out the back thru the garden center. He just said he didn't have a key because he didn't want you or anyone else to know what his plan was. The other guy was fired because he couldn't solve the problem maybe.

Why did old manager replaced/fired?

Anonymous said...

He wanted out of apeville and begged for a transfer I heard. He never dreamed it would take 60,000 dollars just to put his kid thru school here. His wife was scared to go out at night to grocery shop or attend functions by herself. They had never seen such a dysfunctional town in all their life and travels.

Anonymous said...

It is true you check out at the Garden Center register, leave your cart a minute, then return with more stuff to put in it and go on out.
Watched a young ho trying it Saturday.

Did this person make it out of the store or get caught with additional merchandise?

Evidently 3:54 didn't live here or wasn't born when G'ville was a great city to live in. Before the casino's the levee was packed for 3 to 4 nights during the 4th of july. They had boat races, national acts at night and bands. There were vendors lining the top of the levee selling all sorts of food,100 boats floating between the yacht club and marina watching the bands and later the fireworks. All the hotels and motels were full,restaurants were jammed with out of towners. The levee was packed with people every night ,so many that there was barely enough room to sit anywhere. And during all of this not one bad thing ever happened. Downtown was full of shops to stroll down and window shop. Thats what the good ole days were then 3:54. Now do you see what this city was before the casinos said if you let us come we will make it 10 times better. Well, do you think it's 10 times better? Since then G'ville is steadily losing people and its tax base. Crime has tripled with less people. How do you explain that? How did G'ville go from nearly 60,000 citizens to just over 30,000 if it has gotten better by the casinos? There was so much industry here but all left when whites started to leave. When SEARS leaves your town ,You know its BAD!!!! They had been here for 100 years. Now let this sink in and tell me you're satisfied the way G'ville is today.

7:56, You have it right exept for the casinos being the cause of the prob.. Well said!!
