It’s not fair that my life is impacted by drugs when I don’t even use them. To all you drug users whose attitude is ‘I’m not hurting anyone but myself’: You are wrong.

.

Hello. I enjoy reading Speak Your Piece and I have put this in there before. I’m not knocking religion. I have nothing against it. Go to church. Read the Bible. Please, people, don’t put Bible verses in Speak Your Piece. Save it for Sunday. God bless you and thank you.

.

I just pray to God that He will rain fire and brimstone down on Letcher County and parts of Kentucky because they are worse than Sodom and Gomorrah ever thought about being.

.

Hear ye. Hear ye. We have a wild man running around here over on Indian Creek.

.

These senior citizens centers are a waste of money. All some of these people do is sit around talk about their neighbors and gossip and claim they are such Christians. They should tend to their own sins first.

.

To my nosy neighbor: You and your husband best keep your noses out of our business. He does have a warrant still out for him.

.

Hear ye. Hear ye. We got a fool running around in Sexton’s Branch. He can blow up onion sacks.

.

It’s a shame that the law won’t even come over when you need them here at the mouth of Indian Creek. There’s a bunch of people down here playing poker and stuff. I don’t know what a person is going to have to do.

.

This is to all the so-called Christians out there who say they are Christians yet when the church doors open they only come on Sunday morning and not on Wednesday night or Sunday night: That is not Christian like. It says that each time those doors are open you are to forsake yourself to the symbol there. I thank you.

.

I’m calling in about the nosy neighbors in Whitco. Every time we have a family get-together the law has been called. They say we do this and we do that, We can’t even have a family get-together, just like when my poor old grandma and grandpa were sick, people couldn’t even come and visit them without the law being called. I would appreciate it if all of these nosy neighbors would keep their noses on their own faces.

.

I think before the government channel lets people be on it, they should teach them some manners because some of them are making people in this part of the country look like idiots. Some of these council meetings and fiscal court members need to learn to take their caps off when they are inside. Gary Rogers, you need to quit rocking the podium. You all need to quit making us look stupid. You are on TV. We want to make a different impression. Our leaders need to learn manners so we can work smarter and not stupid.

.

Someone is going to get seriously injured at the Mayking Post Office. Every time I try to get in there are three or four cars parked abreast in front of the post office trying to use the handicapped parking spot. I realize that we have really a lot of mentally handicapped patrons at the post office, but do they have to use the physically handicapped parking spot? I have almost been backed over several times. I hope the postmaster will look into this and see if something can be done.

.

While it is fresh on my mind, let me comment on the tenure of the current school leader. When she was being considered for the job she had a civil suit pending against the Letcher County School Board. What happened to that litigation? My guess is that it was settled and sealed so the public could not view the amount of the settlement. During her 12 years on the job, she has been paid over a million dollars. Have we received an adequate return for our money? Sure, we have sports facilities second to none, and probably some of the highest paid coaches in Kentucky. Again, have we received a proper return for our money? We have a wonderful, much-needed consolidated high school and vo-tech facility. Again, have we received increased academic achievement in return? Only time will reveal the results of this administration.

.

One imminent danger approaching, I shall persecute you to the fullest extent of the holy Bible and I shall prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law. I will make the Spanish Inquisition look like a pop quiz. I will ride my bicycle through your window in the dead of the dark of the night and steal your honey cornbread. Beware of the Midnight Phantom.

.

I’d like to let the people know that Obama is the forerunner of the antichrist. He is just coming along and setting things up for the antichrist so when it is time for the antichrist to come on the scene he can show up.

.

The citizens of Jenkins are counting. There is one year, eight months and two weeks left until we get a replacement mayor in Jenkins. During the previous administration there was an open door policy where you could go in and talk to the mayor on any issue most any day. Under the current administration the door was closed and locked the first day and remains that way. Just as a reminder, under the Shubert administration there was nepotism where four members of the family were employed by the city. There was no ordinance against nepotism at the time, but that still doesn’t make it right. The citizens of Jenkins need to be planning ahead for the next election.

.

I’m glad I am a Christian because when the rapture happens and God pours His wrath out on His people who are left behind, I am glad I am not going to be around to face what is going to happen. I pray that all who are lost will just turn their heart over to the Lord before it is too late.

.

Mitch McConnell is not right when his says that his being caught on tape saying stuff he shouldn’t say is like Watergate. McConnell’s case is like Nixon’s only in that he got caught on tape saying stuff he shouldn’t say.

.

Yes, I’d like to speak my piece. I’d like to know why is it that every time I call a certain person he hangs the phone up on me as soon as I call him. Now he is being a real smart aleck for some reason or another. I’ll pay him back for it sooner or later.

.

To a certain woman: Everybody knows why you divorced your husband. It’s because he found what you have been with.

.

Hey Ridgerunner, what’s the problem, brother? Are you stuck in the mud at Wheaton Hollow or what? We told you already that our club was in Wise County. We’ve got a bike that is available to you anytime you need it. We need you with us and bad. I talk to Blue, she said she would have gotten you a bike, but that you chose that redheaded girl over her. She is mad because of a tattoo you got on your neck. But oh well, life goes on. Come see us. With all due respect and honor, we look up and respect you. Pres. Brothers Forever.
