Speak Your Piece



I used to sell marijuana through three certain people, and when they found out that I found out where they worked they begged me not to tell on them. So now they have forgotten about me, and now my kids have been taken from me. Well, I’ll tell you what, old buddy, what comes around, goes around.

What do you mean what have I done with my life? You ought to take a good look at your own life before you judge anybody, because you sure haven’t been a good role model and you can’t judge anybody.

People, we’ve had two nurses killed at the Kona stretch of U.S. 119. What do you think the problem is? I’ll tell you what it is. They are working those girls with too much overtime. The hospitals need to let up and let them work eight hours and hire somebody else to help them out because surely their lives are worth more than overtime.

How can a person who was freed after 20 years come back and do that? Do what? Purchase a new mobile home and move it on the best piece of land in the neighborhood and have gutters installed on that mobile home, have the driveway paved and a cross and flashing Christmas lights on the line that burn on a 24/7 basis, and who has cable T.V., a cell phone, city water and wear Lands’ End and Neiman Marcus clothes with shoes shined at all time and who wears a windup Timex watch and who drinks 150 proof Remy Martin Cognac and who has a lawyer hired out of state. Come on now, M.P., what is your secret? Where is the money coming from?

I enjoy reading Speak Your Piece. I also enjoy hearing it on WMMT on Wednesday about 5:10 in the afternoon. It is really neat to hear written words being read to you. Thank you and have a nice day.

Well, well it looks like O.P.D. is up to no good again. You think he would learn his lesson the first time, but all of us neighbors can see what is going on. The same people are coming in and out every day. We see the dark-haired girl, the black Jeep and the people coming in all hours of the night. We are not stupid. We know what is going on. Oh well.

This is regarding the caller who was complaining about bike night and the wet/dry issue with the threats of getting it changed: I would just like to know if I could use the lemon you are sucking on to make myself a mixed drink.

Listen up, all you people. This is the most profound, philosophical viewpoint ever transcribed in Speak Your Piece. Whether you be sacrosanct, sanctimonious or sacrilegious, whether your deeds or misdeeds are esoteric or exoteric, whether your fame or fortune or lack thereof destroys or enhances your moral fiber — and I do care about your fiber — death is the equalizer. But lo and behold I give you a drink of encouragement. I quote Longfellow. ‘Life is real! Life is earnest! And the grave is not its goal; Dust thou art, to dust returnest, Was not spoken of the soul.’ And I will also give you another poet, not verbatim but who opined, ‘Because I could not stop for death, death kindly stopped for me.’ This is the M.P. speaking and now my friend, you die.

Of all the government branches of law to go into, the executive branch is the easiest one to attain and is the one which entails police officers, prison guards and security guards. All I have seen that is really required is to be about 100 pounds overweight, have an IQ of your shoe size and be a moron basically, and be spoon fed through two years of community college and become a county deputy. So don’t be bragging on how much education and credentials it takes to be a deputy.

This is to the power company: I want you all to know I have a Christmas tree up this year. I have four sets of miniature lights on it. I have no outside lights. I have no company so there is no extra cooking. Now, please don’t send me an outrageous bill for December.

(Good luck with that.)

I was just wondering how a non-member who is not a veteran can go in and take over a veterans’ club and run it when the Ladies’ Auxiliary has more authority than this guy has. What gives him the right to do this? Is there some place we can call? He has never been in a war. He is not a veteran. I was there the other day and the place was a disgrace. It was filthy nasty. I want to meet with you fellow veterans and see if we can get something done about this.

 Good news. After many years of hard work by volunteers and professional builders and $1.5 million of grant money invested in the old Jenkins School, something wonderful seems to be in the works. Keep watching the front page of The Mountain Eagle
in early 2011 for details. God bless all those who have never given up working for a better Jenkins and eastern Kentucky.

 Today I bought gas and it was $3 a gallon. When George Bush was president everyone said no wonder the price of gas is up, George Bush is in the gas and oil business. I’m wondering if Barack Obama might have bought George Bush’s portion of the gas and oil out because they say it is going to be $4 a gallon by spring, according to the news.

Hello, world. I know you are supposed to love everybody, but I just cannot stand my son-in-law.

I’ll tell you what makes my blood boil. We live on a city street with a steep incline and we have people sick here who can’t get out to the doctor because the city won’t do anything about the ice or the snow. We can’t get out at all. The city truck was seen down there at the ballpark sprinkling salt even though it is in the level below the swimming pool. The people who live there had no trouble getting out to go where needed, but there are poor people that can’t get out to go to the doctor or get their medicines. We are the ones paying all of the taxes for the salt and the truck.

How pathetic has our local government become when the ones in charge hire a registered sex offender? I don’t think this is a good statement for our officials to be making. This is not the statement we should be making. If you need to look it up, he is not registered in Letcher County. He is registered in Lexington, but had lived here before. How interesting. He lives less than 500 feet from the woman he got the sexual charge from. Thank you.

Regarding the Speak Your Piece comment about the Jewish zombie who practices cannibalism, I’m sure he is referring to Jesus Christ and the rites of communion, which is the most holy tradition to Christians. This is the most blasphemous thing I have ever seen published. I would be afraid God would part my hair with a lightning bolt. Repent.

Thank you to the Whitesburg fire and police departments for leading Santa Claus through town on Christmas Eve. This is such a neat tradition. I’m sure children of all ages enjoy watching Santa come to town.

To a certain couple who live on Burton Hill down toward Blackey: You better keep those two black dogs of yours in your yard. They keep attacking my baby dog. You better keep them on a leash.

The produce section at a local grocery is really bad.
