What started as a tip that a local radio personality/political candidate was pretending to be a lawyer has morphed into something more and that started when Slabbed obtained Southern District PSC candidate Demetria M “Sugar” Stallings resume from the Biloxi City Council minutes when former Biloxi Mayor AJ Holloway appointed Stallings to the Historical Preservation Commission:

“If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.” ~ Lyndon Johnson
Slabbed was promised via back channels that an arrest would be made in the matter of Supervisor Bo Ladner getting clocked by a tire iron to the head but nothing has happened except for crickets chirping. Its been well over a month since Ladner landed in the hospital.
The answer to that depends on the state in which you live and is incredibly nuanced. For example back in the 1990s the City New York Bar Association Ethics Committee found the term esquire, over time referred “commonly and exclusively” to lawyers. That same committee also found that “based on common usage it is fair to state that if the title appears after a person’s name, that person may be presumed to be a lawyer.”
I’m not a lawyer but I agree with logic. For example seeing the name Jane Doe followed by “,Esq.” would lead most folks to conclude the person was a lawyer. There are some states that take that notion seriously. The Ohio Supreme Court’s Board of Commissioners on Grievances and Discipline prohibited a lawyer who was not licensed to practice law in the state from appending Esq. to his signature on business correspondence because it was deemed to connote licensure in Ohio. (Ohio S. Ct. Opinion 91-24 (1991).)
Marsha and I plan to vote for Buck Clarke for State Treasurer in the Republican Primary on August 6, and I think it’s worth sharing why we believe Buck is clearly the best choice for this important position.
First of all, our treasurer plays a very important role in state government. This is not a position for on-the-job training; we need a treasurer with an accomplished career. The State Treasurer is our chief financial officer. The treasurer manages the state debt along with the Governor and Attorney General, and their decisions impact the State’s credit rating and millions of taxpayer dollars.
Furthermore, the treasurer serves on PERS, the state retirement system. PERS has about $28 billion in assets and pays out nearly $3 billion annually to state retirees – over 100,000 of them. While PERS does not get a lot of media attention, it’s one of the most challenging financial obligations the state has to manage. We need someone with Buck’s experience and accomplishments in this critical role.
For Marsha and me, Buck Clarke is the most qualified candidate to serve as State Treasurer. Buck’s education, experience, training and career as a CPA and small business owner have prepared him to manage these critical financial issues. In addition, Buck has served as the Chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee the last eight years and gained invaluable knowledge and experience dealing with the State’s finances.
What a great Shakespeare Quote that a cuz-in-law timely mentioned because it makes a great post title and dovetails nicely with this recent post which spoke about evangelical preachers more interested in building net worth than leading people to salvation.
Through time here in South Mississippi I’ve had a chance to meet many people including a few Baptist ministers that are truly gifted individuals. One I know from social media is Dr. Russell Moore from Biloxi, a gentleman that is very well known within the Southern Baptist Convention. What’s important about Dr. Moore in my estimation is that he belongs to a subset that truly strives to live their faith as much as preach it. It’s a trait that I personally hold a great amount of respect for when I see it. Dr. Moore posted this to twitter a few days ago:
The reports of the conditions for migrant children at the border should shock all of our consciences. Those created in the image of God should be treated with dignity and compassion, especially those seeking refuge from violence back home. We can do better than this.
One of the replies he received was breath taking and absolutely revealing:
Who are you @drmoore ? Have you ever made a payroll? Have you ever built an organization of any type from scratch? What gives you authority to speak on any issue? I’m being serious. You’re nothing but an employee- a bureaucrat.
Worth noting here is that Falwell is a legacy Tee Vee preacher that also happens to have mucho man love for Donald Trump. For Falwell politic$ ha$ become hi$ religion that much is clear. Further down the scale but almost as harmful is denial and that too was exhibited: Continue reading ““Hell is empty, and all the devils are here!””
