I don’t understand why the health department doesn’t go into Pizza Hut’s bathrooms. I went in there the other day and I got deathly sick. It was so nasty. There is no cause for a public bathroom to be like that. It stank because they hadn’t mopped it and cleaned it.

.

To Magistrate Codell Gibson: Why did you speak up for the recreation center when you don’t have the guts to speak up for your senior citizens at Boone Fork? That is why you got yourself beat.

.

God will always have the last and the loudest laugh. You will be the joke.

.

I saw a comment in Speak Your Piece about Senator Mitch McConnell being the great man that he is. He has had 30 years to help eastern Kentucky. What do these people want us to do, give him 30 more years to try to help eastern Kentucky? I don’t think people can live without jobs for 30 more years.

.

I understand that people have hard lives and hard times to get through. My life is far from perfect, either. That being said, it bothers me to be treated so rudely when I go through a fastfood drive-thru. Not all the workers, mind you, treat customers rudely, but quite a few have been lately. I understand that it’s a hard job. I’ve worked in fast food myself, but I always tried to treat others the way I wanted to be treated. When I take the money I’ve worked hard to earn and spend it with someone who won’t even look me in the eye, it bothers me. I always try to be courteous and thank the worker for the food I order, but rarely do I get a ‘thank you’ or ‘you’re welcome’ back. I think I’ll just bring myself a sandwich to work from now on.

.

If you get in an automobile accident and get hurt don’t call your insurance company first. The first thing you should do is call Daniel Dotson’s law office and let him help you. He is 100 percent for you. He isn’t for the insurance companies. Please, take my advice and call Daniel Dotson first.

.

I’d like to give my appreciation to the guy who sweeps the streets of Whitesburg. He also painted the fire hydrants red. He sure has Whitesburg looking good. I think the mayor ought to keep him.

.

Can someone give me some information where I can sign up locally to work to keep this awful Democrat woman from having any chance at beating Senator McConnell? I will do whatever is needed to help, so please just let me know. Is there a McConnell headquarters around here anywhere? Where do we go to get signs and bumper stickers?

.

I think it is about time that people here in Kentucky wake up. Mitch Mc- Connell has been in office for 30 years, and while he has been in office he has done very little to help us. Where was he when the coal industry started going down and the electric companies began raising rates on us? People are hurting bad right now. Let’s get someone in there who knows a little about what Kentucky people need. He seems to be out of touch.

.

I saw in The Mountain Eagle where the Republican candidate for county judge/ executive wants not one but five debates with incumbent Jim Ward. Does he realize what goes into organizing a political debate? It’s not like it was in Lincoln’s day when all you needed was a stump.

.

This is the old cat killer. You want me to put my name in the Speak Your Piece. Why don’t you put your name in there? Don’t get mean with me, boy. You name the place and time and I’ll be there and you don’t have the balls for it. Thank you, Speak Your Piece. I love you all to death ‘cause you tell the truth.

.

Let’s see if anyone can answer this question. What is the definition of a hypocrite?

.

I am so glad that I got my mother out of Letcher Manor Nursing Home. When I talked to the nurses about my mother they hardly looked at me.

.

To two certain women: Do yourselves a big favor and don’t tell everyone everything you know. We were brought up poor just like you and we are still having a hard time coping with our lives. You don’t hear all of us telling you about it though. Tell people something good for a change or keep your mouths shut.

.

They say that 10,000 people of the ‘baby boom’ generation sign up on Social Security every day. I want to know how many people die each day that were drawing benefits from Social Security.

.

How come Senator McConnell keeps voting against our veterans? Once more, he just voted against better access to health care, educational help and unemployment benefits.

.

Let’s keep eastern Kentucky rolling forward. Let’s vote to re-elect Senator Mc- Connell and bring our coal business back to life.

.

To a certain person: I am shocked that you would use God to fabricate your lies. I believe you are possessed by the devil. Get behind me in the name of Jesus, Satan. God will have the last laugh on you, old girl.

.

To Whitesburg Mayor James Wiley Craft: Will you please answer one question? How many members of one family can be employed by the City of Whitesburg?

.

I just want to thank Mitch McConnell for reminding me how bad the Environmental

Protection Agency really is. I worked in Cleveland for a while and some of my friends and I used to love to smoke a little weed and go down and watch the Cuyahoga River burn as it flowed by. It was cosmic. When we came back home for a visit, we could always tell when we were almost back to Cleveland because you could see the smoke from the smokestacks from at least 100 miles out. Darn the EPA for taking all that away.

.

To Blondie: If you can’t grow them, you shouldn’t buy them. Instead of getting a breast enlargement, you should have gotten a mouth reduction.

.

It looks like the Hemphill hooker is at it again. Her parents better keep a look out, as she is now asking men if she can do favors for them. How nasty can one person be?

.

To a certain woman: You are the stupidest woman that ever lived. Get over it. I’m married to the love of my life, and I don’t need any other woman. I wouldn’t have you if you were trimmed in gold. You are nothing special. You act like you’re something, but you are nothing but a lying hypocrite. You are a lowlife for running your mouth. We don’t care what you do; don’t worry about us. You’re a joke still saying stupid stuff after all these years.

.

In retrospect, I guess old Tricky Dick Nixon wasn’t such a bad president after all. You know, he was the one who authorized the creation of the EPA and signed the Clean Water Act into law. He may have been a little paranoid and crazy as an outhouse rat when it came to elections, but he was about ten thousand times better than his Republican allies. Richard Nixon, a true Republican environmentalist.
