Churn baby churn

Too big to fail, too big to jail and the revolving door from Wall Street to the Office of Attorney General and back to Wall Street. Folks, your Grandpa’s Democrats wouldn’t recognize the new ones or if he did he’d swear they are Republicans. Below is a must read.

Slabbed was and remains an early innovator on this topic:

Thank God for Arizona Part 3: Blaming the surge in drug violence on the Mexicans. God damn the pusher man (and his U.S. banker).

The ultimate solution is to legalize Marijuana in the US. That one action would kneecap the drug cartels and their crooked bankers. We’d also save money not jailing Cheech and Chong (or the local equivalent in your area). Speaking of that:

Updated: And now there are nine ten in the race. A Biloxi Special Election Update

Welp folks, file this one under a politician will be a politician:

Biloxi acting mayor Kenny Glavan does about-face, will run for job ~ Mary Perez

The story is rich because we find out that:

  1. Glavan was appointed acting Mayor because he promised not to run which in turn clues us all in to what his campaign promises will be worth.
  2. Windy Swetman pulls a page out of that ol’ time Mississippi campaign playbook and bringing doughnuts to a campaign stop at the City’s Public Works Department.  For the summertime primary election season, fried chicken and watermelon is the typical fare out in the country so one could argue Sweatman was trying to barter votes on the cheap with just doughnuts. He better tighten up

Did I mention I saw Swetman buddied up Scott Walker at Insurance Commish Mike Chaney’s Insurance forum back in the day?  Neither stayed for the entire program.

Next up the City of Biloxi’s website has a treasure trove of voter information about the upcoming special election so it’s gets a Slabbed transparency attaboy:

Other Voices | Eye Spy: Qualifiers leave Biloxi Voters with Slim Pickins’

My Fellow Americans and Citizens of the City of Biloxi,

Just a short time ago, rumors of further indictments circled the Mississippi Gulfcoast, AJ Holloway checked into rehab then quits his post a short time later due to “health reasons” according to an article posted in the Sun Herald.

If that wasn’t enough for the citizens of Biloxi, they are now stuck with the task of selecting their next fearless leader, the next Mayor of their beloved city. As of today, it appears that the citizens of Biloxi will have quite a variety of characters to choose from at the end of April. Of course, the citizens will also get belly full when listing to most who will tout how they are “Conservative Republicans” but do not seem to offer anything different than the next, or the person they replaced. The only thing we are missing to make this a full scale circus act is for Robert “Pee-Wee-Herman” Demming III to enter the race.

I have not examined each and every candidate but by first look, two in particular have stuck in my mind as questionable to say the least. Those two characters are Cono Carrana and Dixie Darlyn Newman.

First off we have Cono Carrana, a retired Harrison County DA of over 20 years who collects a state pension and may be old enough to collect social security. This candidate raises my suspicions due to the fact that he is willing to jump into a Mayors race at his age and forfeit pay. Yes, folks, he is willing to work for free. But Why? Is he really in the business to help the community or is there an underlying scheme to benefit himself or his social network? I will not elaborate on the rumors I have heard about how he conducted business as the DA, but I will say this–he doesn’t appear to be the sharpest pencil in the box or the most outgoing–as seen recently on WXXV.

I think Cono is an entire generation short and out of touch with reality.

Next up we have Dixie Darlyn Newman–has she turned 30 yet? Continue reading “Other Voices | Eye Spy: Qualifiers leave Biloxi Voters with Slim Pickins’”

One source: I told you all those indictment rumors were premature

But that one source is not denying something is cooking in Harrison County as there is plenty of unfinished business from last year, but this source has also been steadfast in saying nothing is imminent.

My guess and this is a just a wild guess, is that certain people connected to a matter being explored by a federal grand jury have shared their grand jury experience with the larger community. That is how Garland Robinette related subpeonas leaked out back in the day and is the most likely explanation IMHO.
