The 5 Worst Ideas From Mississippi’s Tea Party Government

Mississippi State Flag

Mississippi’s Tea Party-dominated government has come up with more than its fair share of ridiculous legislation. From adopting strict immigration laws similar to the discriminatory regulations in Alabama, to allowing certain counties to jail students for simple misbehavior such as being excessively tardy to school or violating the dress code, to banning the implementation of Sharia law, the Mississippi legislature has been hard at work proposing and enforcing some of the most useless and outrageous laws in the country.

Here are the five worst ideas to come from Mississippi’s right-wing government.

  • The obtuse socio-economic policies advanced in Mississippi are the reason that state ranks among the poorest in the nation. Its education system is an embarrassment, the use of MEDICAID and welfare is out of control, and corruption is rampant. They are an example of what not to do, and an albatross dragging the U.S. economy down.

      Does anyone even hire people from Mississippi? Unbelievable that a state in the 21st century would be so backward.

  • Eleanore Whitaker

    The question is, “Does a state have the right to impose a singular ideology on its taxpayers?” Right wing ideology is the disguise for anarchy against a democracy no matter how they slather it in mint julep and magnolias. No state has the Constitutional right to demand the entire state population fall in line with a single ideology. That flies in the face of the very tenets of democracy. This type of ideological hostage taking is simple enough to put an end to…cut off federal funding other states are paying for. If MS can’t survive without federal funds, it must then rely on its ideologically imposed state government to inflict on their taxpayers an unjust delivery of tyranny. Why must other states help these backwoods states lie in their own cesspool of “ignernce?”

    • It is the ideology in all religions to protect the people by lifting up morality, decency and right behavior as given in the holy books; it is our protection and does not single one ideology or religion. Contrary to that is what people are trying to call democracy, establishing a new religion that commands accepting gay rights, abortion, our prison system, freedom to degrade people and speak in inflammatory manner to incite violence or violent take over of governments as we support Arab Spring. That is establishing a new religion and prohibiting the free exercise of other religions; and that is unconstitutional according to the first amendment to the US Constitution. That is what keeps us in “holy war” and “war on terror”. That is where we need real change.

      • mah101

        The difference between you and fundamentalist islamists is what, exactly? You call god Yahweh and they say Allah, is that it?

        When you go back to your holy book, please look up Matthew 7:3 and think about it.

      • Eleanore Whitaker

        Conservatism is not a religious ideology is it? Let me avail you of a truth the religious fanatics will never like to hear. I worked with a Russian born in Russia before glasnost back in the late 1980s. What your kind don’t want to hear is that before glasnost, this young man was raised in a country where religion was outlawed. So he never grew up with any ideology other than communism. He had no shred of a sense of religion. He was, contrary to what you might want to believe, as moral and decent a man as I’ve ever met. Yet, he had no understanding of religion. A good thing when you consider that religious fanatics are so hot to ram their brand of neoconservative ideology with a basis of religion down our throats and try to convert everyone. Sorry if your kind have failed in that effort. How about you keep your religion to yourself? That is what the intent of spirituality always has been…between you and whomever you choose is your higher power. Not you and your conversionism.

      • Our founding fathers believe in God, but NOT organized religion.

      • charleo1

        Lady, if you can get the Right Wingers, to quit degrading people,
        and speaking in an inflammatory manner, we might elect you
        President. Out of appreciation for the relief!

      • idamag

        If two boys make their father a father’s day gift and he praises one boy and degrades the other, would that foment hatred between the boys? If a god promises some rag tag wanderers a wonderful land full of milk and honey and helps the wanderers kill all the people who lived there, is that good? If a god drowns everyone in the world but 8 people, is that a kind, loving God? Since the Leviticus laws are against homosexuality, and we adhere to that, should we not adhere to the rest of those laws? Some of the Leviticus laws are: You cannot eat any animal that does not have a cloven hoof and chew a cud, If your brother strays from his religion, you are supposed to kill him; If a woman is in her menses, she must be isolated from society for 7 days; If a woman gives birth to a baby boy she is to be isolated 5 days; if a woman gives birth to a girl she is to be isolated 10 days. Religions that were conceived in the middle east have a history of violence. There were the French and Spanish inquisitions, the Mountain Meadow Massacre and the Salem witch hangings.

      All you dimwits said the Tea Party was dead–now we know why, don’t we. They did so well in the 2010, OHitler and the communist IRS had to stop them. What an upstanding organization the IRS is. They are finding out now that more Government groups targeted conservatives too!!!. I knew there are more Patriots in this country than communists. Romney won the election, OHitler stole it

      • Eleanore Whitaker

        Lana…You fool no one. The only reason the red states hate this president is one they can’t be adult enough to admit: bigotry bred in the bone since the days of John C. Calhoun. As for the IRS…like healthcare reform all of the Porker states love to lap up the federal tax dollars the rest of us pay and you don’t. They didn’t find out anything that the IRS didn’t already tell them. They problem with dunderheads is they hear the truth and don’t accept it. Instead, they go on and on and on and on interminably and stupidly concocting their own truth. Who do you think falls for that? Romney didn’t win the election tootsie…..52% of us voted for President Barack Obama because he was all about the hope and change your Texas Crawford Crawdaddy demolished in his 8 years of failure. Try again sweets…That mint julep and magnolia routine is for Big Momma when her palms are slathered and buttered by Big Daddy. So if that plantation is dead as Marley’s ghost and the plantation mentalities are too dumb to recognize they can’t live like pre-Civil war plantation days.

        • lana ward

          Watch the hearings, OHitler is behind it all. I’d love to see him in an orange jumpsuit, but I’d rather see him dead

          • highpckts

            I’d rather see you that way!

          • ma

            Are you threatening the President of the United States?

          • highpckts

            Sure sounded like it to me!!

          • Well it is a good thing the president is a christian and do not wish any harm to come to you. But while you try tospeak hatred forthe president, I betyou are using the Obama care like the rest of us. This isa man who have put everything in front of him trying to do the best he can fort the american people. As long as he continue to do that you and your leaders will have everything to fear. As far as these so called scandals, don’thold your breath thinking that it will lead tho the president.But watch as they start drying up that will be key for you to check to see how near it is to republicans party. That is whoreally need towatching, they sure don’t give a hoot about the american people.

          • lana ward

            Ocare is a nightmare. Dems were trying to get themselves and their staff exempt from it, it’s that bad. They say it is a huge train wreck, but they voted for it.—NOT ONE Republican voted for it. Dems have always ruined everything they get their hands on Ocare is on the dems, they own it

          • ma

            We are proud to own it.

          • lana ward

            You won’t be, unless your a sponge

          • Eleanore Whitaker

            Seems like your the one who is the sponge …MY NJ federal tax dollars help MI regain their lead in the auto industry which by the way is doing just grand…You are welcome….though your kind never thanks anyone.

          • lana ward

            That post was about Ocare, wit

          • Eleanore Whitaker

            Grow up honey…You’ve changed the subject in your posts 3 times…when you lost the argument. Don’t like being a loser? Then learn to educate yourself with facts…not right wing anarchist lies.

          • lana ward

            That post wasn’t to you and it was about Ocare. You paid no attention to what it was about but you had to be a busybody and stick your nose in it.–You’re the loser, you voted for a loser

            Hurts when someone gets the best of you doesn’t it.

          • lana ward

            Has your MSM told its viewers that Obama is making it a crime to put anything on the internet that would offend muslims???? Bye, Bye, free speech. Hello LOTS of people arrested

          • Eleanore Whitaker

            For the record, I NEVER pay any attention to the “ignernt” from red states who mooch off my tax dollars. I live in NJ…My state gets back 61 cents for every dollar we pay in taxes. NY gets 62 cents..so does RI, MA and VT. Now…Alaska breaks the record with the return for the $1 they pay…$1.72 plus $1200 for every man, woman and child for living in that state. TX is 2nd…another red state…$1.47 for every dollar they pay…that doesn’t count the $12 billion your GOP House thugs handed Big Oil in 2012 and $13 this year and already the GOP thugs have projected $14 billion for Big Oil next..if you know how to do the math…the total for only 3 years is $39 billion…How isn’t that wasteful spending Tootsie? Now take a look at the returns of the $1 they pay in federal taxes for MS, TN, KY, LA, GA, NC, SC and the rest of the conservative moochers….all earn more than the dollar they pay…Admit it sugar pants…Your Confederacy is comprised of the biggest moochers in US history.

          • Eleanore Whitaker

            The spongiest calling others sponges? That’s rich..roflmao

          • So “Dems have always ruined everything they get their hands on.” That must be why every Republican administration since World war I has trashed the economy. Eisenhower had three recessions, Nixon two and Buffoon Bush two, the last being the worst since the GOP’s Great Depression.

            On the other hand, Democratic recessions have been as rare as Mensa meetings in your backyard.

          • lana ward

            Dems policies have ruined the economy. Their policies are put in place and destruction happens afew years later, under the next President. Right now the 10 best states for business, have Republican Governors. States with dem Governors are in the toilet

          • Maybe “the 10 best states for business, have Republican Governors” is because they start far down the ladder.On the other hand, Wisconsin went from being near the top ten in job creation to the mid-40s under a right-wing governor.

            If you must know economics is a national issue not state or local, but if you must to told:

            Right wing states have the lowest per capita income, liberal states the highest;

            Conservative states produce the lowest amount of taxes for the nation’s health; liberal states the highest.

            Conservative states take the highest amount of federal spending (welfare); liberal states the least, so liberals are subsidizing the conservatives;

            Conservative states have the highest crime rates, highest out-of-wedlock pregnancies, lowest academic standards, and lowest standard of living in the nation.

            And they are trying to impose this substandard life on the rest of us in the civilized parts of the nation.

          • lana ward

            The dems ruin their states then come to the Red states to ruin them. Misery loves company

          • ralphkr

            Then, lana, kindly explain why the national economy tanks, or at least slides, with Republicans and booms, or at least gains, with Democrats AND why the states with the most people on welfare are Republican run states???

          • lana ward

            The dems ruin the blue states then move to red states to ruin them. The sponges voted for Obama, not Romney

          • ralphkr

            Right, lana, it is interesting that you think that Democrats ruin the blue states (which is why they have to support the red states) and then the Democrats move to the red states and suddenly vote Republican.

          • lana ward

            No, they aren’t that smart

          • ralphkr

            Wait a minute, lana. You just posted that “dems ruin the blue states then move to red states” soo…if the Democrats all move to the red states and the states stay red then the Democrats obviously must be voting Republican (probably because moving to a Red state lowers IQ by 60 points so they shall fit in). You still haven’t explained why you thing that having the better economy of a blue state means that they are ruined.

          • lana ward

            Mich is a blue state but we have a Republican Gov. Under Grandmole we were in the toilet, under Snyder we are turning around

          • progressiveandproud

            I live in Mich., gumdrop and Snidley Snyder is a disgrace to the governorship, almost as bad as Engler the Angler.

            Selling off our assets (Silverdome, etc.), forcing thru a right-to-starve law after the people voted against it, lowering taxes for business while levying more taxes for the retired and working people, and the list goes on.

            The republicans are a disgrace and always have been. The problem now is that the “christian” churches have joined with the ruling class and convinced people to vote against their own self interest and the country’s interest.

            Go back to reading comic books while Mom’s at work “lana”. You really provide nothing but comic relief for the rest of us.

          • lana ward

            Mich was in the toilet under Grandmole. Snyder has gotten us out

          • WhutHeSaid

            Out of the toilet and into the sewer? Sounds like the kind of place a Tea Bigot could thrive and blossom.

          • lana ward

            Hardly. Mich is doing MUCH better. It just takes time to clean up Dems messes, ya know

          • WhutHeSaid

            You mean like the mess created by many thousands of people having jobs in the auto industry, versus the tidiness of unemployment, foreclosures and shuttered industries if Obama hadn’t acted and Multiple Mitt had his way?

            Oh yes, Satan will reward you mightily for spewing evil lies once you arrive in Hell. Things won’t look so tidy when you are roasting in the lake of fire with a pitchfork jabbing your ass, now will they? No!

          • BDC_57

            She got up her ass already and it’s not a pitchfork

          • Eleanore Whitaker

            The Dem messes? You are such a liar lady….According to the Bush Dept. of Labor by 2008, 8 million Americans lost their jobs…You can continue your fantasy world but the GOP had 8 years of control with a GOP president. Do stupid women of the right bother to figure out how a Harvard MBA like Bush ended his presidency by 8 years of “ignernce” and failing to see his 2 tax cuts for the rich were causing massive unemployment and a September 2008 Financial Meltdown? Go ahead…let’s hear more of that BS rah rah GOP lying…Get thee to a confessional honey…Your lies fall on deaf ears.

          • lana ward

            The meltdown was caused by dems suing banks to give loans to those who couldn’t pay it back. There is a video on YouTube of Obama threatening banks to give the loans!!!! And now he wants banks to give the loans again!!!!!!! He wants this country to go under

          • BDC_57

            you got that right

          • Eleanore Whitaker

            Snyder did no such thing you lying loony. All of the GOP fought like hell to stop any salvaging of Detroit’s auto industry bitching right, left and center about how much it would cost the economy…all while YOUR GOP refused to see that if President Obama had not saved the Detroit auto industry, 2 million jobs would have been lost …1 million in your own state since your state has virtually no other major industry….Keep posting stupidity …it proves what we all know about bigots…they hate from too much inbreeding among themselves.

          • lana ward

            Detroit has had dem mayors and has been run by dems forever. Dems can’t manage shit, Detroit is proof

          • plc97477

            The part that is worse about the whole let detroit go bankrupt is it would have forced our military to go to other countries to get vehicles for our use. since we had a “bring it on” president that would have put us at the mercy of countries who did not like us much. No seems to be seeing that aspect.

          • idamag

            And he had legislation enacted that allowed him to fire and replace city governments. That is pretty far from Democracy.

          • plc97477

            Good morning. You are right as usual.

          • Eleanore Whitaker

            Michigan’s auto industry was rebuilt by President Obama. Are you woman enough to admit that Obama hater? Or do you just blather on and on like a raving right wing lunatic to see your posts in a ten second fame campaign? Grow up. If it wasn’t for president Obama, MI residents would NEVER have recovered from your red state Crawford Crawdaddy’s disastrous presidency. No …you won’t get the last word. Because NO is the word you big babies of the right detest most. roflmao.

          • lana ward

            Grandmole had us in the toilet, Snyder has gotten us out, without OHitler

            No snyder just flushed.

          • plc97477

            Thank you very much for your post. I will chuckle about it for a while I think.

          • Make note that California had an economic disaster under the conservative governors and they could not fix it. Jerry brown now has the state budget in surplus. So much for right wing economics.

          • lana ward

            Republicans get surplus WITHOUT stealing the citizens money

          • lana ward

            Why was the IRS summoned to the WH 157 times??? To play chess. He was there 1 time under Bush

          • idamag

            Love your post. FYI, lana ward is our resident nut.

          • ralphkr

            Interesting fact, lana, is that I have noticed that under Republican mismanagement our economy sags until a Democrat is elected and has to correct all the errors committed by the Republicans. Hoover’s Great Depression (actually started under Coolidge in our area) fixed by Roosevelt; Eisenhower’s recessions of 1953 & 57 & 60 finally turned around by Kennedy; Reagan’s 1980 recession turned around by RAISING taxes; G.H.W. Bush recession in 1990 turned around and even ended up with surplus under Clinton; and the latest being G.W. Bush the only president with a MBA) in 2002 leading to The Second Great Depression which has been turned around by Obama despite Republican obstructionism.

            Since my personal income the last 30 years has consisted of a small pension plus income from investments (Yes, lana, I am one of the takers just like Romney and Ryan except on a much smaller scale) and it has certainly reflected the party of the president since under Republicans it has dropped to slightly over $50K (G.W.Bush) and been over $125K (Clinton) & is currently over $80K (Obama). I am sure it would be over $100K if not for the Republican obstructionism.

          • lana ward

            The dems are good at putting a disaster in place and then it happens under the next President. Their policies over the years have turned us into a moral cesspool and destroyed the economy. Don’t bother me until the hearings are over-thanks

          • ralphkr

            Interesting point about the Republican investigation of Democratic presidents. I never thought much of President Clinton (did not vote for him) until the Republicans started wasting millions of taxpayer money on absolutely stupid investigations. By the end of Clinton’s first term the Republicans had convinced me that Clinton was a pretty great president so I did vote for him for his second term. By the end of Clinton’s second term the Republicans had convinced the majority of US citizens of how great Clinton was that he would have been overwhelmingly been elected to a third term if it had been allowed. Of course, the combination of illegal votes for Bush, discarding of legal votes for Gore, and a Republican controlled Supreme Court allowed the Supreme Court to appoint Bush as president even though Gore had won the Electoral College after all the Florida votes were counted.

          • lana ward

            Clinton wasn’t called slick willie for nothing. And counting those “chads” was one big fraud. The Supreme Court should have stopped that circus long before they did. They got that one right , completely wrong was saying it is legal to murder babies

          • ralphkr

            But, lana, the vote counting was not consider a fraud other than that counting votes for Democrats was considered fraudulent by the Republican run polling system in Florida.

          • lana ward

            That was the damnest show I’ve ever seen. Voters intent. Most voters just changed their minds, couldn’t bring themselves to vote for the goon

          • ralphkr

            But they still made the goon the president and look what happened to the US because of that disastrous ruling.

          • lana ward

            Whatever. Obamas’ half brother Abongo Malik Obama is also a terrorist. He pasted the IRS in 30 days. Law abiding citizens have been waiting 3 years. We’ll see what happens, won’t we

          • Eleanore Whitaker

            How many women’s babies have YOU bothered to adopt? Too much free time on your hands Tootsie. Get a job and get a life…Or is the Koch Tea Party paycheck for sitting on a double wide butt so much better?

          • lana ward

            Bite me bitch!! You don’t want a baby, do something to prevent it, or keep your legs together. I work harder than you do, so STFU, bitch!!!

            I wouldn’t bite you if God demanded it. Puhlease…I don’t put poison into my body…I’m not the one who is doing the morality gospels sugar pants…you are. It’s not your business what ANY other woman does with her body…not unless you want your body to be open to public inspection like you’re doing to other women…And who takes one dumbed down MI woman down faster than another more educated woman? By the way…don’t think you’ll escape answering my question…How many kids who might have been aborted have YOU YOU YOU adopted or is it that premenopausal women with low estrogen are jealous they are no longer “birth” potential? Sorry…I raised my children on MY salary, paid off my mortage and now I’m enjoying watching some middle aged women go bananas trying to have kids in the 40s….something they will long live to regret. keep your Pro Birth, not ProLife nose out of my and every other woman’s business…there are ways to expose women like you.

          • lana ward

            You’re a murderer. Once you’re pregnant, it’s NOT just your body anymore. There is another body who has no rights at all. 55 million and counting of all little bodies that have been murdered and you don’t give a damn. Heartless freak!!!

          • idamag

            While these people are yammering about aborting fetuses, they are lying about everything else. The Ten Commandments does not say, “Thou shalt not lie.” it says, “Thou shalt not bear false witness against any man.” And at the end of the Commandments it says that if you break one of them you have broken them all. draw anal is the biggest liar I have ever seen.

          • idamag

            She is not going to adopt babies, hers were raised on welfare.

          • ralphkr

            It is interesting, lana, that you consider booming economy and rising GDP under Democrats as a disaster and the Republican cure of causing a sagging economy and drooping GDP great.

          • lana ward

            Millions are out of work, half of the country is on food stamps and the market bubble will burst

          • ralphkr

            Yes, indeed, lana, millions are out of work now but there are millions more working than were working before Obama became president and millions more would be working if the Republicans only reason to exist was had not been to block each and every Democratic proposal. Oh, yeah, thank God that so many do have access to food stamps although 50% of the country is a somewhat high guess.since the actual figure was 15% as of April 2013.

          • lana ward

            The only jobs there are are for Gov workers. Millions more would be working if Obama would quit taxing businesses to death putting them out of business. Obama could close Gitmo if he would declare it a small business, he could tax it out of existance

          • ralphkr

            Fascinating theory, lana, considering that government entities have laid off MORE employees than any other segment of the economy and are a major contributor to the unemployment statistics.

            As usual you have also screwed up on the tax issue. Obama does wish to tax big business since they currently are paying from negative tax (refunds) to about 3% tax on massive profits… Of course, it is possible that you consider a business with a billion dollar per year as a small business in which case your statement would not be a lie but I consider a small business one that is local which makes your asinine statement about Obama taxing small businesses out of business a “pants on fire” lie.

          • lana ward

            Your lies are imbedded in you brain

          • ralphkr

            No, lana, you are just like most immature children who refuse to acknowledge the truth when it does not jive with the preconceived falsehoods that they want to be true. Hmm, that certainly covers at least 99% of what YOU “know” about the US, the economy, and politics.

          • lana ward

            I know Obama is a muslim communist destroying my country. I know enough

          • ralphkr

            Oh, lana, you are really slipping now and have forgotten some of your silly adjectives your fevered excuse for a brain holds. You left out “Nazi, Tyrannical Dictator, Un-American Alien (rotating being from Kenya, Territory of Hawaii because you are ignorant that Hawaii is a state, or born on another planet), weak unknowing patsy (nice trait to have in a dictator), and a few dozen other conservative adjectives. The best part is that the more you and the other conservatives rant and rave the more people shall vote for sanity, i.e. Democrats.

          • lana ward

            A communist nation isn’t sanity

          • ralphkr

            Finally a tidbit of truth, lana. I am truly impressed and wonder where you happened to read that bit of knowledge. Of course, I agree with that statement and I also know that if the Republicans had beaten FDR and remained in power that there would have been a revolution and we probably would be a Communist nation now since the only thing that saved the US from that fate was the actions of FDR and the Democrats.

          • lana ward

            It’s the dems that are communist, NOT Republicans. FDR was a traitor to this country

            AAh, lana, you sound exactly like all the rock solid Republicans in the Uber-Conservative Uber-Christian state where I was born and raised. By the way, rock solid also was an excellent description of what resided between their ears. A number of towns shut down and had big celebrations when FDR died (even bigger than the ones on V-J Day). Of course, they hated FDR even though the only reason they did not starve to death was because of his jobs (CCC, WPA,) and my mother’s family town got a new school, court house, post office and a decrepit bridge replaced and they complained that they should have gotten more. Typical greedy Republicans and most likely the real reason they hated FDR was because he had helped them so much. The same reason that the French hate us because we saved them from Germany twice in the 20th Century.

            It is strange that you consider a president who cut unemployment in half and doubled the GDP in less than 10 years a traitor. He would have done even better except that he listened to the Republican ignoramuses who were screaming about deficit spending and he cut spending which threw the US into a recession in 1937 but FDR had the power to quickly return to the proper policy of spending to save the economy & provide jobs. Perhaps that isn’t so strange since you are so stupid as to believe that prosperity is bad because it occurs when a Democrat is president and that recession is good because it is the trademark accomplishment of Republican presidents.

          • lana ward

            All of the spending put us into a recession. All of the spending Obama is doing will put us into a recession too. Republicans are the ounce of prevention, dems, the pound of cure

          • ralphkr

            Actually, lana, the only thing that got us out of Coolidge and Hoover’s Great Depression was the deficit spending by the Democrats under the brilliant guidance of FDR (of course, the Dixiecrats fought his programs but, face it, they were just racist Republicans in disguise). Hoover did do a few thing right for the economy such as public works (Hoover Dam), increasing the top tax bracket corporate taxes (just as Reagan raised taxes to get out of a recession) but it was too little and too late to get him a second term. When FDR switched an austerity plan such as the current Republicans desire the US went to recession that was only stopped by FDR resuming deficit spending. So, lana, there are two examples of what Republican ounce of prevention creates before WW2: The Great Depression and the 1937 Recession (one of the very few recession during a Democratic Presidency). And the Democratic pound of cure (deficit spending) halved unemployment and doubled GDP in less than ten years despite the Republican created 1937 recession and that was before we became the arms factory for the allies and really hit boom times.

            Notice that even though Bush was big time into deficit spending (much more than the books showed because his wars were off book) that it did not help the economy because his deficits were caused by a combination of cutting taxes on the wealthy (business & people) and spending many billions overseas.instead of here. If you had any sense of money whatsoever you would easily that our current national debt and budget deficits can be directly traced to Reagan’s ill-conceived tax cuts & compounded by Bush with his even deeper cuts.

          • lana ward

            Obama and the DOJ say it is now a crime to post anything offending about rag heads on the internet. What happened to free speech!! Yet Obama can say and do anything he wants that is offending to Christians!! Time to say commie DICTATOR yet?? or Heil OHitler

          • ralphkr

            I notice, lana, that you completely ignore the fact that Obama is at least 1,000% better than any of the leading Republicans who are all bent into making the US into a Fascist country with all of us vassals of big business.

          • lana ward

            Glad someone is fine with no free speech

            Hmmm, lana, if that were true we would never hear from you again because they would stop letting you have a computer in your rubber lined room.

          • lana ward

            It’s true, Obama is taking away free speech on the internet

            Tell me, lana, do you actually hear these ridiculous charges on FUBAR News or do the voices in your head tell you these things?

          • lana ward

          • idamag

            When lana gets 65 she will not accept Medicare or Social Security as they are socialistic programs developed by a Communist President. She will show her true mettle by not going into those programs.

          • ralphkr

            It is a shame that there isn’t a ‘sarcasm’ font for us to use, idamag. We both know that lana shall do exactly like all the other boneheaded Conservatives. Collect SS & Medicare while complaining bitterly that the Democrats aren’t giving them enough.

            I loved talking to the TEA Party demonstrators since 2008 as they demonstrate against that horrible government health care but don’t touch our beloved Medicare or VA (I get neither) and how furious they would get with me when I pointed out that both of those programs are prime examples of government health care

          • idamag

            How right you are. Great disparity in incomes and a situation of poverty for some and obscene wealth for others foments revolutions. This caused Communism in Russia. Thanks to FDR and his wisdom we did not foment Communism here.

            The IRS Chief was at the WH 1 time in 4 years when Bush was President. He has been there 157 times with Obama there. Why was he summoned there 157 times??

          • ralphkr

            I am just guessing but there is a good chance that he was on the carpet because he was a Bush appointee and, as a Republican stalwart was prone to errors in judgement. No, I don’t know why Obama kept him on when he took office but I think it may have been part of his making nice with Republicans (what a complete waste of time that is, expecting Republicans to show a modicum of sense and do the job of helping America) in Obama’s effort to run the US the way one runs a university, i.e. consensus.

          • mah101

            lana, I really hope the FBI will pay you a visit soon. That last comment was really over the top. Threatening a government official is illegal. Wishing harm on the President of the United States is not only illegal, but treasonous, seriously morally challenged, and mentally unstable.

            This time it is too much. Anymore threats and wishes of death upon the President should be reported.

            I’m serious. Get some help before you go too far.

          • lana ward

            You bitch, tell me what I threatened. I wish him dead, I didn’t threaten. Get a life, fool!!!

          • mah101

            First, wrong gender for “bitch”

            Second, referring to the President of the United States, you said, and I quote, “I’d rather see him dead”. Later, again referring to the President of the United States and the recent ricin letters, you said, and I quote, “I wish he had opened the letter : )” [Emoticon in the original] Do you deny making these statements? Wishing a specific action on someone that would result in their death is a threat. When that person is the President of the United States it is a crime as well as treason.

            Third, you are typically out of touch but you appear increasingly unhinged. I’m concerned.

            Get help lana.

            Lana, I realize that inbreeding disallows you the ability to rationalize your hatred from its base of bigotry. However, when you obsess with such obvious hatred for a man who has risen from the depths of racism, educated himself far beyond your pathetic attempts at education, nothing you say or do will hide your real agenda. No is a word your kind hates most. As in NO you will not remove this president. NO your party will not succeed based on its present agenda of attempting government coup d’etat..and most of all NO you will not debase this president so your kind can slather yourselves in hatred. Now…go take your meds or seek professional help. Your belligerence and insistence that our wonderful, highly capable president isn’t working. What about “Give it up” don’t you people get?

        • lana ward

          MSM is covering the IRS scandal. Surprise, surprise

          • Our “liberal” media will cover anything to gain market share, and MSM is no exception. That does not mean the “scandal” is legitimate insofar as the claims of victimhood being made by the Tea Party and the innuendo that has dominated the news the last few weeks. The only positive thing that will, hopefully, come out of this is the logic behind giving political organizations tax exempt status, and that goes for both side of the aisle. They should pay taxes the same way the rest of us do. If a waitress or a carpenter have to pay taxes after working their tails off all day long to scrape a living, so does Karl Rove and the rest of the gang.

          • ralphkr

            NO, lana, none of the media is covering the true IRS scandal. They are all ignoring the fact that the IRS granted tax exemption to ALL of the conservative money grubbing lying organizations even though they ALL illegally spend the majority of their money on campaigning while they did deny that status to ONE organization and that organization was liberal leaning with the mission of getting more women to run for political office.

      • The reason that the teaparty complain is because they figurethat they were caught lying about their way to be charge for no taxes. The teaparty isdead and thepresident name is Obama. The teaparty is trying their best to get rid of the republicans thinking that the american people would elect them to be the next party. But they have no clue to the fact that when the republicans fall they willgo down with them.The teaparty lives on fear, fear that more miniorties will run and win the white house and it won’t be a republican or teaparty candidate either.
        The real american people who are not afraid of change are not no longer being brainwashed by the republicans and teaparty. All the things that they try to pass or get passed have woken up the people to stand up be counted and vote. You forget the fact that the IRS have also target blacks organizations and churchs. But that is okay with you right because after all blacks should not be voting in the first place.

  • God gave a revelation in 1833 that He gave us the US Constitution (D&C 98 and 101:77-80).That means He gave us gun rights; we are America’s unpaid army and police force preventing more attacks because we are an armed people.

    If we allow our government to change the constitution to take away our gun rights, they are then authorized to change it again to allow longer terms in office, to allow naturalized citizens to become president meaning foreigners can rule over us and changing search and seizure laws etc. It is important our constitution is not changed and our rights be secure.

      Pardon me. But, I’m always a little skeptical whenever someone claims
      God revealed one thing or another to them. For example, if God felt it was
      important enough, to take the the time to reveal whatever it was, He wanted
      us to know. Why would He reveal it, to just one person? Why not, say, 100 people, from all around the Country? I could say that God told me, He had changed his mind on the gun Rights, thing. That at first, he thought it could protect us from terrorist attacks. Which He doesn’t condone. But, He went
      on to say, instead of killing terrorists, we’re just killing ourselves. And, He
      was particularly saddened, about the carelessness, and the number of
      children being killed. Because, He related to me, He had a specific plan
      for every one of them. And, He is still very adamant, about His will being
      done on Earth, as it is in Heaven.

      One of the best tenets is from the Articles of Faith, “We believe that man will be punished for his own sins and not for Adam’s. Wonderful isn’t it? Man will be punished for his own sins. However, until 1978 Black people were not allowed to hold the priesthood because they were cursed by the sin of Cain and they were descendants of Cain. Journal of Discourses, Vol 10 p 110 “Whites who marry Blacks will be put to death on the spot and it will always be so.”
      Journal of Discourses, Vol. 1. pages 62-63, “Negroes are from degraded parents and less intelligent than others.” Journal of Discourses, Vol 7, pages 290-291, describes Blacks as having Cain’s mark.
      Digressing from the topic, some other quotations from the Journal of Discourses:
      Vol 8, p 211, “God, a natural man, had a father, also.” Vol 5, page 167, “Christianity is a pack of nonsense.”

      Uh, Marie Devine, I suggest that you look at the original Constitution and note that Senators were elected by state legislature, those of color & no females were allowed to vote, & all those other changes added after the first 10 amendments (the only ones that can possibly be considered as part of the original Constitution) and also consider that the US Constitution ratified by all 13 states 43 years before the date that you specified.

        I am a civil libertarian and I believe in strong and absolute separation of church and state regardless of religion but unlike the new left, I do not apply that only to evangelicals but also to those who would use religious guidelines as criteria for legislation which are incompatible with democracy be they Christian, Jew, or Muslim. Contrary to the beliefs of many on the far left, Americans do have our own culture. Never was this more evident than in the case of a Halloween parade staged by an Atheist group in Pennsylvania in which a Muslim immigrant attacked and choked a man marching in the parade who was costumed as “The Prophet Mohammad” and then called the police himself to report the incident because he actually believed that “mocking the prophet” was against the law. Subsequently the case was dismissed. What can anyone possibly conclude from such a travesty other than that it is OK to physically assault somebody as long as you are an idiotic religious fanatic immigrant who claims Sharia as his defense. You can say “it can’t happen here” until the cows come home but the reality is it can and already has.

          First, I’ve been a Liberal all my life. Primarily, because, it
          more closely represents, and advocates my own personal
          values. The fact that many of these values are also found in
          The New Testament, to me is superfluous. In other words,
          I believe acts such as feeding, clothing, and giving the poor
          shelter, is not only the moral thing to to. I believe it creates
          a better society to live in. The fact that Jesus also did these
          things, reinforces my belief in their correctness. But makes
          no case, in my opinion, that simply because they are in the Bible, it should follow, they be made into law. So, I believe without reservation, in the separation of Church, and State.
          I believe, it is absolutely essential, for the preservation of the
          integrity, of both institutions. I also happen to see the equal
          application of the law, without caveat, as essential to
          democracy. I also see the necessity of strict privacy laws,
          They protect the individual from the intrusion of the State.
          I don’t like abortion. But, I see it as a private matter.
          And preferable to the State, blundering around in our homes.
          Because, to see it as the business of the State, we might
          as well, swing the doors wide, and allow the regulation
          of all private matters, both large, and small.
          I see no new Left, as you claim. I see no change, or much
          variance in well established laws, aganist the assault of
          one individual, upon another. They had another case a
          couple of years ago, that was supposed to prove the
          encroachment of sharia law. Cases are dropped, or
          dismissed, all the time. I really have a hard time believing
          a criminal court judge determining, the defendant was
          following sharia law, and since he is Islamic, case dismissed.
          This sharia law business, is nothing more than politicians,
          creating a problem that plays to the fears of voters. Then,
          pandering in the crudest way, to make themselves look
          like heros. Instead of working on real problems, which
          are hard work, and do require effort. There is no New Left.
          There is no movement Left, Right, or Center, to enact Sharia
          Law. I say this with all respect. Do not allow yourself to be
          played.

            I do not believe we need to urgently pass such defensive legislation and I am well aware of the stupidity of right wing extremists. I was responding primarily the contention by the National Memo writer purporting that the enumerated considerations were absurd. They might be over the top but they are not absurd. What IS absurd is extremism on either side including left wingers who have gone so far as to outlaw smoking cigarettes in your own condominium in the city of Santa Monica California.

          • charleo1

            I agree. Within the Left, there is this faction that believes
            they know what’s best for you, better than you know yourself.
            The nanny state. I call them busybodies, who get into
            a position with a little sway. And right away, they are all up
            in everybody’s business. Bloomberg, and his war on fast
            food, cigarettes, and soda pop. I get that. I am with you, 100%!

          • labrown69

            Charleo – if I’m not mistaken, one thing the National Memo objected to was legislation to make it illegal to “limit portions” which I have to presume is response to Bloomberg’s idiocy. What is truly priceless about Bloomberg’s foolishness is that most folks know that if you order a Coke or Pepsi in Europe or even Mexico you get one sweetened with real sugar. Here you get one made with “high fructose corn syrup”, used because it is cheaper and which is in damn near everything we eat. It has been linked to diabetes, obesity and tumors in lab rats and yet Bloomberg never utters a peep. Debating “what size Coke” you can drink in NY without addressing what is IN IT is like debating how much Drano it is safe to drink. Our leaders are the worst of both worlds. They are idiots and the better among them still have lost sight of the importance of freedom for it’s own sake.

    • ralphkr

      Gee, Sharia law re: women sounds suspiciously like the Old Testament and the Mormon Creed.

      • labrown69

        That may or may not be BUT we don’t LEGISLATE “the Old Testament”

        • ralphkr

          Are you sure, labrown69? It certainly seems that many Republican state legislatures are using the Old Testament as a guidline.

          • labrown69

            Well, you have a point there but that is because they are morons, not by the design of our founding fathers who were pretty f-ing clear about separation of church and state which of course is probably the best idea since the wheel.

  • midway54

    Why expect anything less than this from that place? It’s probably the worst of all the places comprising Dupedom South. The plutocrats and their propagandists love ’em all for their strong support as clueless voters.

  • howa4x

    Makes me wonder why we even fought the civil war. Mississippi is putting it’s head in the sand. It is one of the states that won’t accept the Medicaid expansion and has the highest obesity rate, which causes diabetes, heart disease and is a high risk factor for cancer. So I guess the state is ready to assume all those medical costs of treating these people since it will be a medical tsunami. That will go over big with the tax payers. Since the state is located in the hurricane corridor of the gulf maybe they will refuse to accept FEMA aid as well. Republicans have waged a war on women for a long time so anything they do is just par for the course. Pat Robertson wants them to be subservient to their man and thinks this is a Christian way to be. Maybe they should put all single women in Burkas since they act like the Taliban anyway. They are proving to all that the fact that they have the lowest test scores in the country is no accident
    As for nullification I wish they would nullify right out of the Union.

  • Robert P. Robertson

    What has four eyes, two p’s, and always misses? Mississippi! . . Okay. Okay, it was a little lame. My bad.

    • plc97477

      Lame maybe but very apt. Good chuckle.

  • Eleanore Whitaker

    The Tea Party is dead. It committed suicide when it decided to use those two well paid wind up dolls Palin and Bachmann as spokeswomen. The minute they opened their mouths, out came stupid. Now, Bachmann knows there’s NO way she’ll ever be re-elected. So this cowardess takes the skanky way out…she decides not to run. Maybe her Swiss husband and her Swiss citizenship will mean she has to finally pay her taxes on that Swiss profit she got from US taxpayers?

    • And don’t forget the millions that her farms get in federal subsidies.

  • ORAXX

    I’m surprised they didn’t create a committee to reinvent the wheel.

  • herchato

    The Taliban now governs Mississippi?

  • Lovefacts

    The article proves Miss doesn’t understand the US Constitution and Supreme Court rulings and totally lacks even a minimal knowledge of science. It also explains why Miss’s population is considered one of the country’s worst educated.

    Based upon the apparent T-party’s and Republican Party’s reactionary beliefs, I’m beginning to lean toward two countries–one of red states and one of blue states built kind of like the EC. Heck the taxes for the blue states might go down b/c we’re pay more than we receive. Of course, the existing debit and deficit would have to be divided based upon which states pay the amount percentage paid in taxes versus receiving the most in Federal support. That would mean we blue states wouldn’t have the bulk of the debit or deficit.

  • good for mississippi they have balls. obama ban gguns ban free speech ban ban god ban soda ban sugar ban fredom what he supports slavery pedophilia terrorist lying to american people Al=Qaeda killing babies women are stupid childern are a punistment muslim brotherhood obama a muslim terrorist

      Wow….
      Get help, Jon.

    • idamag

      In other words, lynching, burning cross burnings, mutilations, and other crimes against people is okay in Mississippi as long as it is Southern Baptists that are doing it?

      • BDC_57

        sounds like the kkk

  • unkgr Rogers

    Mississippi has a large black population, don’t they vote? Mississippi should not be a Republican state.

    • idamag

      It was a Democrat State until 1964, when a Democrat President, Lyndon B.Johnson signed the Civil Rights into law.

  • ococoob

    Don’t these illiterate jackasses have anything else better to do such as getting jobs, jobs, jobs for their citizens?!!

    • ralphkr

      Naw, ococoob, according to lana the red states are full to overflowing with Democrats who all left the blue states (like California which now has a budget surplus) after ruining them and, as we have been informed by lana, all Democrats never work and just suck up the welfare (and evidently vote Republican).

  • Sand_Cat

    And this is a surprise?
    Where in education does Mississippi rank? 49th? 50th? It often seems like 51st.
    But Bobby Jindal seems to be working hard to give them some competition.

  • Actually Mississippi has a lot of good going for it. The problems that do exist there have a lot to do with tax dollars not going to Mississippi in retaliation for the Civil War. Yes, public benefits could be better in Miss. but without getting a fair share of the federal tax dollar the state can only do so much. Many of the people of Miss. both black and white are people of wonderful character and honesty. I lived there in 1950, in the bad old days, and would take Miss. any day before I would live in the north east..

    It appears that they are trying to legislate for stupidity and against science and rational thinking. They do seem to want to continue their leadership role in a negative sense. High obesity rates, high infant mortality rates, high teenage pregnancy rates, high poverty rates, low high school graduation rates, low literacy rates.
    They are bringing up the rear in most meaningful quantifiers and appear to want to legislate to continue the trend
