Harvey Edwards on Gillett Coon Supper

What do US Senator Blanche Lincoln, Congressman Marion Berry, Senator Mark Pryor, Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe, and a host of other Liberal Democrats have in Common with the tiny Delta Town of Gillett Arkansas? The Delta is dying and so are the careers of the above mentioned band of scalawags. This didn't stop all of them from converging on this tiny town and taking over a school and community dinner, The annual Gillett Coon Supper.

The evening started for the Politicians and as many staffers as they could bring in all meeting at Congressman Berry’s farm outside of town. This occurs every year at this time. Democrats only need attend. The Liquor flows. and the backslapping continues until it is time for them to go slumming with the local townsfolk. Marion actually has someone guard his Sign and direct the other Liberals down the graveyard road to the Berry Barn for drinks, real food and lies.

The coon supper itself begins with the principal of Gillett elementary school discussing the purpose of the event. The Coach , who no longer has a team gets up and makes a plea for people to please move to Gillett so that he can maybe have a team someday. A local comic gets up and talks local stories with a good jab or two at the politicians. The local pastor gets up and gives a great sermon as Berry staffers stare around to see if anyone is watching them. This is where the local aspect of this dinner ends, wait not quite. Miss Arkansas gets up and sings two Broadway tunes. "I wanted to separate her from the politicians because local folks respect her more than to lump her with the Political derailment coming next."

Congressman Marion Berry our hometown US Congressman gets up and from here whenever a mouth moves a lie is told.

Marion touts how we in the Delta are surviving the recession better than most. What he doesn't say is that we have had practice at living poor thanks to his type of plantation master politics. Where if he can get Riceland Foods and big farming subsidies, it must mean we are all doing fine. Lie number one. While the farmers are getting disaster relief this year to make it through the winter, the actual working class don't even get a crumb most don’t get their bonuses.

Marion must have heard the school folks talking but he just wasn't listening or caring. Gillett can't even get a charter school because Governor Beebe and others will not allow for it. He touted the efforts of State Representative Tiffany Rogers for working for higher education. That is a joke. If the people here could afford a higher education they would ALL have to leave to get a job afterwards.

Congressman Berry then introduces the biggest ruination of the Delta since the Civil war. Senator Blanche Lincoln, you know, the who lied to all of Arkansas and the Country and made it possible for Obamacare. She gets up and since she has been prewarned to not discuss anything relevant, she begins patting her own back for being on the Agriculture Committee. and how proud her daddy would be of her. As a matter of fact all the scalawags patted Lincolns back.

Governor Mike Beebe got up and said how Gillett was one of his four favorite places in Arkansas. I hope he remembered to wipe his mouth afterwards. Berry Got back up and told all in attendance that Mike Beebe was the best Governor that Arkansas has ever had, Stating that he would say that even if Bill Clinton were there. We're getting mushy now. Senator Mark Pryor gets up and this is about the time the lies kind of began to blur into one , or was it the hot air or maybe smoke being blown up our rears. I began looking for the exit. I was beginning to perspire. It was noticed by the delegation from Maumelle " they were the only genuine enough folks I met there" as I sat across from them speechless.

No one there can ever explain why the richest agricultural region of the world has the most poverty ridden and unsupported folks in the Country. Governor Beebe cannot get up and say that he will give tax breaks to businesses that will come to the region to keep us working and spending. That’s how an economy grows, not by taking every federal dollar thrown at Government programs run and dictated over by Government beaurocrats.

By the time Mike Ross got up it was becoming a blur to the point that I got up got my souvenir coon supper glass and with my granddaughter in tow made my way out to the frigid cold air for a breath of fresh air. My Granddaughter needs her rest , she will be spending all her working life paying for what these Liberal Criminals are stealing from her today.

A pathetic footnote: NONE of the media or politicians has made any advance media reports of their convergence on our pillaged Delta.

Then again this was convenient since there was not a single tea party or nasty old right winger there except the townsfolk who have lived with this all their lives.

I grew up in Gillett. It just so happens I am the Candidate for State representative dist 14 that they don't want to see there. I did however plant my Jim Holt for US Senate yard sign coming into town and politely removed it when i left to place it in my yard in Stuttgart.

Folks let’s get involved in our own futures.
