I think it is so sick for someone to say they are praying for others when all they do is sit and gossip and criticize the other people. They really need to pray for themselves. They might fool some people, but they sure don’t fool God.

Revelations 5: 12- 14: ‘Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth forever and ever.

My final thought of 2013 was God bless America and as president, Mr. Obama, you suck. And that’s the bottom line because history will say so.

.

Well, Obamacare isn’t working here in Kentucky. The governor of Kentucky said Obamacare is working great and we are signing up all of our new Medicaid people, but he isn’t doing anything and Obama isn’t doing anything. The insurance isn’t doing anything either, because it isn’t even there.

.

To a certain person: I really would love to see you again. I know it’s been more than 20 years, but that doesn’t matter to me. You know where I work, so call me or just drop by. You won’t regret it, I promise. GP.

Sgt. Castle, I hope you are enjoying your subscription gift of The Mountain Eagle. I agree with you that it is the best newspaper in the whole area. What makes it so good is the publisher and staff. I know each of them and they are true, dedicated, honest and respectable people.

This goes out to @Gurnis1 who is doing a fine job with getting his homesteading operation up and running on Linefork. We need more homesteaders these days, growing our own fruits, nuts and vegetables, raising our own meat, canning and preserving, and yes even producing our own electricity. Homesteading is a lost art these days and it’s good to see anyone take up the craft. So keep up the good work and I hope 2014 is a great year for you.

Looks like the game warden would put a stop to this. They killed about 12 deer and are spot hunting every night up and down Mill Branch and on the old South East Coal Company road.

If a recent comment was intended for me, I’m the veteran’s wife. And, honey, it was my money that fixed this shack up when I married him. And it was also my money and my mother’s money that bought the pickup truck that I am driving. Now, that old man didn’t have anything but the house and it is my money that had it fixed up. I love my husband and he is in the VA and he is being taken care of. Now, nosey.

.

To the goodhearted man looking for a goodhearted, ugly woman: Being goodhearted, everyone recognizes it. Ugly depends on who is looking. I am looking for a goodhearted man first. Looks are secondary. Not all women can be taken away. Keep the good heart. She will come along soon.

.

These diehard Democrats are still blaming Republicans for what the Democrats are doing. These Democrats who like what is going on must be getting a welfare ride.

.

I wish Sheriff Danny Webb would come to Kingdom Come Creek and tour the neighborhood. When he leaves, he’ll wonder how the people live in the homes that they live in and obtain the things that they have and only draw disability checks.

.

This goes out to the man or woman who likes to talk about the woman who goes to church: He likes to talks about all the parties she went to and done all of this when she was pregnant. Buddy, you need to just shut up. You are not God. Don’t judge her. It sounds like you need to go to church. You go there for help, not to be judging others.

.

It seems like one of our elected county officials really keeps a lot going on – womanizing at his job and at other places, drinking beer, and breaking up happy homes. Maybe we need to think about all of this before we vote to re-elect him.

.

I would like to ask for help from Social Services or somebody. There is a 62-year-old man who is staying with a certain woman. He is being starved, beaten and threatened. She takes his check. He sits for weeks at a time without eating. She is also taking his Social Security checks and she took his car. Maybe you know someone who could help. I called Social Security and nothing has been done. I called the cops and nothing has been done. He is scared to death of her and her dad. He really needs help. Someone please help him.

.

There were two comments in last week’s Speak Your Piece about doing something to someone’s loved one. To this angel woman: Why don’t you quit making a fool out of yourself? You don’t know what you are talking about.

.

Isn’t it great that you can block people from seeing a post on your newsfeed because they post such stupid pictures?

.

The best way to control drinking and bars is to take the requirement back to 70 percent food and the rest of it drink. That keeps the riff raff out, the bad people who want to come out and cause trouble. Control keeps people safe. All I want is what is best for the city.

.

To a certain man: I have never really liked you, but after I was told today that you got a girl raped and robbed I had to just speak my piece. What is up with that? Wasn’t she supposed to be one of your closest friends? You are trash. Let’s just get on with the story. No doctor should ever write you anything, because you will just sell it. I know for a fact you were prescribed Lorcet, Xanax and you went to your doctor and got all of those filled and you are already out because you sold them all. What are you going to do if you get drug tested? They sure won’t be in your system, but I do know what will be — cocaine. You always did like to shoot up coke and smoke some crack. The police need to start watching you big time. Of course, you drink and drive because you are never sober. You are 70 years old and you like 16-year-old’s? You think a relationship is giving little girls five pills a day so you can have sex with them. That is not normal. That makes you a pervert and a drug dealer. And you are always with a prostitute. And take a freaking bath.

The mission in Neon is supposed to be a non-profit organization for the needy and poor in the community. Instead it is only for a few family members who let greed take all of the good things and leave the rest for the poor. We would like for the community to get together and check this out. We see the trucks come in and unload and then the family comes in while it is closed and store things for themselves.

.

To the woman in Coon Hollow: I hope your New Year’s resolution is the same as mine — that you will get rid of that person who has consumed your life for so many years. Notice I said person, not a man. He will never be a man. He is a little boy who refuses to grow up and ever become a man. He cares only for himself.

.

The Brian Morris who is running for jailer of Pike County is not the Brian Morris from Jones Creek that everybody likes.

.

Let me see if I’ve got this right. A couple of week’s ago a comment was made in Speak Your Piece that people weren’t coming into Whitesburg from outside of the county being loud, disruptive, throwing beer bottles and causing problems. Now two men from Pike County are accused of killing a boy on New Year’s Day in downtown Whitesburg. I feel so sorry for that family.

.

I don’t know how a certain woman could ever show her face in a church house when she couldn’t even show her face in her own home. She had to move out and move somewhere where nobody would know who she was. That is getting pretty bad.

.

The Letcher County person who recently lost his wife probably had a lonely Christmas. He is living with his mother who will now pick up after him and clean up for him like his ex-wife did. He will continue to sleep up until the day and will then act like a bully and a tough guy the rest of the day. Life is a mystery but there are always two sides to every issue. His way is not necessarily the right way.

.

I do not know how many of you people read Speak Your Piece or call into Speak Your Piece, but I made a prediction some time ago that we would have a political upheaval or natural calamity. Now, here it is January 5–7, 2014. It is the worst storm we have had in the past 100 years. I hope all of us can deal with it. This is the Midnight Phantom. Thank me for calling.

Here is a ‘believe it or not’ from Letcher County. A car broke a utility pole. The company was called. The caller was told the power would be back on in one hour. Several hours later the repair crew arrived with several workers in each truck. They studied the problem. One worker said, ‘We need a new pole. This one is broken.’ ‘Yes, we agree,’ the others said. ‘The pole on the truck won’t fit the hole.’ (Which they had not dug yet.) All of the workers got back into their trucks to go find a pole. Some went north and some went south. While they were gone a truck with flashing lights came down the road. The driver put up signs, ‘One Lane Traffic’ and ‘Flagman Ahead.’ No one was there to close the road or direct traffic. About three hours later the utility workers returned (flashing lights, traffic directors, and an entire crew of workers dressed for the occasion). A new pole was put into a new hole in the ground, and only seven or eight hours after the accident, power was restored to the area. Could this system of repairs be one reason the utility rate will increase in January?
