MISS JONES GOES TOO FAR WITH MRS. KNOWLES!

MISS JONES: YOU LOOK LIKE THE JOKER!

Miss Jones‘ mouthpiece has gotten her in hot water with the Knowles clan. This past Friday Beyonce and her mother Tina Knowles ran into the Hot 97 shock jock in the radio station hallways. Beyonce was cordial, but Mama Tina opened up a can on Miss Jones. “I just want to thank you for talking about me and my daughter every day while you’re on the air. It just boosts her ratings up,” she was quoted as saying before walking off.

Not one to back down, Miss Jones came back with a verbal body blow of her own. “Actually you should thank M.A.C. makeup for hiding all that oldness on your face. Now you look like the joker.” Ouch. Let’s get ready to rumble!

Sony reps and Hot 97 staff stepped in before anymore words were exchanged, and the two fighters were sent to their respective corners. But the battle didn’t end there. Just to show how much juice the Knowles’ fam has, Miss Jones has been suspended for two weeks over the incident.

MICHAEL GILDON’S QUESTION OF THE DAY!

WOULD YOU USE THE N-WORD LIKE THE BOONDOCKS?

I’m having a bad morning because of some damage done to my property the previous night and lack of sleep. I was outside getting some fresh air and I struck up a conversation with my neighbor who happens to be a white guy. He said he watched an episode of the cartoon “Boondocks” last night an he thought it was so funny. I’m not a big fan of the show but I know they use vulgarity and the N- word repeatedly. I don’t know perhaps he saw the look in my eyes as if I was saying “I wish a MF would” use that word with me. But the conversation did not go there. As you know people often repeat what they see and hear so My question is since the N-word is such a sensitive word should it be banned from being used in such as movies and music???

I’M JUST GOING TO DRINK RED KOOL-AID!

I went to a local grocery store and was shocked to see the price of a 20 ounce bottle of Coke and Dasani water. Both are going for $1.43 each. This is out of control. I could remember just two months ago when a 20 oz. bottle of water and coke both went for 99 cents. That’s an increase of nearly 50%. I think I’m just going to get my water from the faucet at home and if I want a drink – I’ll pop open a pack of red Kool-Aid and add it to the water…

THE MEETING TO SAVE KASHMERE GETS UGLY!

I NEED YOU, YOU, AND YOU TO LEAVE RIGHT NOW!




The Insite was at a meeting of African American ministers who came together to hammer out a plan to save Kashmere High School. It was held at New Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist church on Kelley. But the meeting went really wrong. Attending the meeting were Carol Mims Galloway, Rev. Willie Jones, Senfronia Thompson, Shelia Jackson Lee, Kevin Hoffman and a host of others. But things went sour when the principal of Kashmere, Dr. Charlotte Parker, showed up. Apparently, she was invited by HISD Board Member Kevin Hoffman. Well, what Parker didn’t realize is the ministers and other organizers thought she was part of a conspiracy by HISD to close Kashmere. Dr. Parker was recently appointed to the school – replacing the former principal…Some community leaders were very upset with that decision. So, when Hoffman had his turn to speak to the group he also invited up Principal Parker. She gave the group a folder of information on how they can help improve the school. But after about 15 minutes Pastor Jones got up and abruptly told Parker her time was up and to leave. He also told her the meeting wasn’t about what they could do at the school but what HISD should do to save the school. Pastor Jones also chastised HISD Board Member Kevin Hoffman. Jones told Hoffman he thought the board member intentionally tried to “sabotage the meeting” by bringing Parker to the afternoon session…Now all of this is going on while The Insite is snapping pictures and the cameras are rolling. When Pastor Jones realized the media was still there documenting every word – he also told us to leave. Meanwhile, one person leaving the meeting told The Insite she didn’t believe the gathering of ministers produced any results to help Kashmere. The pictures you see above are of Jones telling Dr. Parker her time was up and to leave the mic…Pastor Jones is in the gray suit jacket…Enjoy! (sorry the photos are so dark – I was far from the podium)

INSITE COMPUTER UPDATE!


TECH GIVES A DIAGNOSIS ON THE LAPTOP!

Rumor has it the Insite computer could be back at headquarters by the middle of next week. A tech from the Sony repair shop says they’re ordering a new DVD drive and they think they’ve isolated and repaired the program that was causing the computer to freeze up. So keep the Insite computer in your prayers. And as you have seen posts have been very weak as a result of the absentee laptop. I’ll keep you updated if you care.

CRIMINAL: I THOUGHT YOU COULDN’T CHASE ME FOR A TRAFFIC VIOLATION?

A houston cop sent me this email to show his experience after HPD’s New Chase Policy was announced last week:

Isiah,

Last night I had a motorist try to “evade” me when I clocked him speeding 57 in a 35. He sped up when I turned on my lights and siren and went about 1/4 mile before he finally pulled over. The driver and passenger ate their marijuana after I did not back off and let them flee.

I arrested the driver for not having a driver’s license and for speeding. The passenger was released. The driver asked me about our chase policy on the way to jail.

******************
ISIAH: I’m sure this cop is glad the policy has been on hold until it goes before city council and the public…

HE TURNS 48 YEARS OLD AND CAN STILL MOONWALK!

A poster reminded me that it was Michael Jackson’s birthday today. So I’m gonna post this and block all comments because I know how some people can be. Yes, I’m still a fan…Now what? No…I think I’m gonna leave the comments open to see where this goes!

TORREY ‘T-DUB’ WALKER GOES BIG TIME!

I GUESS THE PAGES OF THE INSITE ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH ANY MORE!

Take a look at the flyer for Rapper Mike Jones’ Club Ice Age…If you look to the left of the flyer in the top photo – you’ll see Torrey ‘T-Dub’ Walker near the back. He’s been out moonlight – hanging out with the big celebrities and all. And now he’s on an ad with Mike Jones. What’s up with that ‘T-Dub’ – The web posts of the Insite are not good enough for you any more.

THEY WANT CONGRESSIONAL ATTENTION ON IMMIGRATION ISSUES!

















A COALITION OF COMMUNITY LEADERS AND ORGANIZATIONS HELD A PRESS CONFERENCE OUTSIDE OF CITY HALL ANNOUNCING WHAT IS EXPECTED TO BE A MASSIVE PRO-IMMIGRANT MARCH IN DOWNTOWN HOUSTON ON LABOR DAY, SEPTEMBER 4. AMONG OTHER THINGS, MARCH ORGANIZERS WILL BE CALLING FOR LEGISLATION THAT WILL GRANT PERMANENT RESIDENCY FOR UNDOCUMENTED RESIDENTS IN THE UNITED STATES. THEY ALSO PLAN TO ADDRESS WHAT THEY SEE AS THE CONTINUED FAILURE OF THE CONGRESS TO FORGE A MORE HUMANE IMMIGRATION BILL AND THE GROWING DISCRIMINATION, VIOLENCE AND XENOPHOBIC ACTIONS AGAINST IMMIGRANTS. THE MARCH IS PART OF A NATIONAL MOBILIZATION EFFORT BY IMMIGRANT RIGHTS ADVOCATES TO GET A COMPREHENSIVE REFORM BILL PASSED THAT WOULD INTEGRATE UNDOCUMENTED RESIDENTS INTO THE MAINSTREAM OF SOCIETY BY EXTENDING THEM AN OPPORTUNITY FOR PERMANENT RESIDENCY.
