I Can Only Tell You The Truth...I Can't Make You Believe It

Yesterday, several people contacted me because they felt I was showing my hand and letting the city hall lurkers know what I was doing by posting a copy of the letter I sent to Stacy Pickering, State Auditor. Trust me. I know what I'm doing. One thing I'm certain of and this is this, the last person anyone from city hall will do is voluntarily contact the State Auditor's Office. I know what to post and I know what to leave off the blog. Here's the thing, I don't obsess about those lurking from city hall because they matter not. The reason I posted the letter was to provide other citizens with the address so they can write letters requesting an investigation into the finances of the City of Lumberton. Now, for today's post. I love going through my screenshot file and see the bizarre claims that are constantly made. For those that send me screenshot, please continue to do so because it's so refreshing to use their own words to show you who they are.

The following screenshots were from responses made by Paul Ockmond. Take note of the venom filled responses from the Man of ?od. Also, Ockmond mentioned that I failed to speak of the $2.5 million dollar grant and matching funds that were secured by Ben Winston and Jay McGraw but according to an article in the Hattiesburg American on January 9, 2016, the matching funds are not secured and the board is trying to get a CAP loan in order to obtain the matching funds needed for the grant.

The next post is the reason why I selected the title for this post. No matter how much I post the truth, there are those that are willing to believe a lie. This person posted a lie knowing that the person that placed the ballot in the trash admitted to making the error but that's not good gossip. We must make up lies that a ballot was stolen to make it look like conspired or invented the whole thing but as you will read below, the person responsible responded but some people don't have time to be bothered with the truth.

Now, there was a lot of things said during the election and anytime I responded, I was accused of "playing the race card." Whenever someone is losing the argument or can't present a logical reason for their stance, they resort to the phrase “playing the race card”. For the record, there is no ‘race card’ and racism is not a game. Unfortunately, the phrase is used to either dismiss or downplay a very serious issue. Using the term is a form of denial, a way of talking about racism, while still pretending that it doesn’t really exist. Despite the fact that I am accused of being racist, I blog about everyone, regardless of the color of their skin. When the person below posted that I was not fair to "white folks" they apparently don't read the blog but are alerted when a blog subject happens to be about a white person because I have blogged about black and white people and my only agenda is the truth but it's clear that there are those that feel the only change needed in Lumberton was the election of a white mayor. Be careful, your colors are showing.

  1. If u think anyone on the current board, or the new "elected" mayor is bad, wait until Johnny Buckley gets a hold of that place. That punk ass bitch is so stupid he couldn't even spell his own name. I wonder if he made it out of the 3rd grade. His head is so far up Criders ass I'm surprised he can even breathe. He's about the dumbest rock I've ever talk to in my life. One thing is for sure Crider won't have to worry about getting anyone to give him oral satisfaction because I expect Buckley to be under the boardroom table every five minutes taking care of his best friend. The funniest thing of all is imagining him in charge of something involving numbers, or reading, such as a budget, I wonder if he can even tell time.

  2. This city is getting worse. Johnny Buckley is running. You gotta be shitting me? He printed out some bullshit certification and they appointed him building code inspector. He chain smokes so much that his gray hair is neon yellow. He and his wife are gambling addicts, that's probably how they met Tommy and Doris, and he's one of the assholes that ruined the fire department. I see they didn't look out for their other fire board member, Guy Serrin. Buckley and Crider used him up and threw him away like a used condom with shit on the tip. I hope someone else is running because I don't think our sewer system can handle any more shit at city hall. It's already overloaded dealing with that floating terd Merlene. She even looks like shit. How you get such a good photo of her?

  3. What's the difference between Merlene Wall and a pile of shit? Shit stinks for a reason.

  4. Johnny Buckley .... Jonathan maybe you need to look at his criminal record if you know what I mean ... I bet his home computer has all sorts of interesting pictures on it ... Too bad there's no FBI office in Hattiesburg to take care of him… If you thought shoplifting was bad… I wouldn't let him in Cora Rogers place of business that's for sure

  5. The colorful comments are on point but there's a better way to say these things without profanity. For instance Johnny Buckley is like a nutt butter in a jockey strap after football practice and Merlene is like booty juice after getting off an exercise bike. There's better ways to express a point. Now I'm not one of those hypocrites that will shun poorly worded comments here while embracing the vulgarity that's on Lumberton Connection. I see there's people complaining about you blocking and deleting comments but are hush about The fact that the administrator of Lumberton Connection blocked you. Do explain the difference. I'll wait.

  6. I'm going to put up some signs all around town that say "Johnny Buckley can't read this sign". That's all the campaigning you would need to do to beat him

  7. Hide the kids when Johnny Buckley is around. No wonder Johanna have a gambling and drinking problem? She's probably tired if dressing up in the little Catholic girl uniform. You may want to reach out to the people of Luling, LA to get the scoop. There's a family on Collier Drive that have some juicy details.

  8. Who filled out Johnny Buckley's qualifying paperwork? I don't think an X is an acceptable signature.

  9. I bet Johnny Buckley hands out candy to children as a part of his campaign

  10. Is Johnny really running? When will these people learn? With social media all their secrets will come out when they seek office. Jay has been proven a thief. Kent is a liar. Bobby Gibson like crack head (head from crack hoes). Ben is a thief and abuser of women. Cora and Tommy like d**k and according to Greg and Melissa Jonathan was kicked out of Grambling. Scandalous!

  11. I'm sure Johnny Buckley will be a shoe in. Lumberton loves swamp trash they know nothing about.

  12. I like reading your blog but maybe you should hang up the laptop because people aren't listening. They hate you more than they love this city. How else can you explain a city that's 70% black electing a bigot over a black man. A qualified black man. They call you racist but every top job in Lumberton is held by a white person and now they're ready to do cartwheels because they elected an embalmer to revive a dead city. The irony.

  13. People get upset because Jonathan allows anonymous comments but it's just an effort to diminish the truth he post. But they love Belynda Garraway for allowing people to post lies in a closed group that blocks the person that's being discussed. At least Jonathan has the courage to speak openly and don't need the cover of night or closed group settings (sounds like a klan) to speak freely. I guess she will eventually block all black members but she's failed to realize that most are crabs and it's probably the white members that's keeping Jonathan informed. Now your effort to weed out the culprit has gotten more difficult.

  14. ION who's posting these comments but at least Johnny and Kent don't live in government housing while getting free clothes, good and furniture. Get a job.

    1. In case you didn't know, we all live in government housing. Rent and mortgages are secured through federal financing. HUD, FHA, FDIC. So your attempt to make an insult actually shows you're an uninformed asshole. I followed the campaign and watched the interviews and Jonathan was the only one that had the news crew at his home. If he got them clothes, that furniture and decorations for free then he needs to teach me his tricks. But this is probably Greg being the bitch he is and talking smack. I guess he think he's winning because he and Kent own shacks. When was Hurricane Katrina and Mayor Crider still has blue tarp holding his roof together. Maybe Greg can pay those liens Tower Loans filed against him and finish putting up the walls out there on Wayne Purdue Road. You don't live in the city limit but I guess you're so interested in Lumberton because that penis cozy you wifed took one if the fee jobs in Lumberton from a Lumberton resident.

  15. The greatest irony is ANYONE bragging about their city being run by Crider. That's the funniest thing I've ever heard.

  16. I keep hearing talk about where you live and I don't see why that's an issue. I've seen your house on the news and I've been through you're Facebook page and saw more pictures of your house. You really should change your privacy settings. But if you got all that for free then you need to start a new blog about Frugal Finds because you got some expensive looking stuff. I'm wondering if you could post a photo of Mayor Kent Crider's home. I'm going to inbox you some photos of Greg and Melissa's home. Please don't post the inside photos because they will know who I am but I just wanted you to see how they're living since Greg is so obsessed with how you're living. I ran into one of your former co-workers this weekend. I'm sure she will tell you about our conversation. I'll be waiting to see those photos of the Mayor's house.
