This is my opinion. What a wonderful country the USA would be if Senator Mitch McConnell could be elected to the office of President of the United States of America. However, we can only reelect him for another six-year term as U.S. Senator from Kentucky. May God bless Senator Mitch McConnell for his many years of dedicated service in preventing the ‘takeover’ of the U.S. government by the evil forces of socialists and their ungodly plans for America. It is a shame there are American citizens who look upon the United States as their enemy instead of as their savior.

I’ve got a message for the guy who hangs out at the Whitesburg housing project and the Caudilltown section of Whitesburg and Camp Branch. If he gets this message, he knows who he is. He picked up something off my porch more than a week ago. It was brand new and we have informed the police about it. They went looking for him and couldn’t find him. If my property doesn’t show back up in my yard, I’m going to get a warrant out for you.

I was just wondering how in this world can people stand lice on their head. I was told that it is some people’s way of life. They think nothing about it. How can you stand the itching, stinging and burning on your head? I cannot understand that in my wildest dreams. Before your kids go back to school, spend $5 on lice treatment.

.

To all parents of school children: This year when your kids get sick and throw up, don’t send them to school sick. Take them to the doctor and get a school excuse.

.

This is old regular Joe here spreading the Lord’s good word of love and devotion. It says in the Bible, ‘judge not lest ye be judged.’ If you are a homosexual, longhaired vegetarian liberal environmentalist city person who believes in that, you can go to hell. I’d rather starve than eat from the tree of knowledge. How about you all?

.

I would be embarrassed if my house and porch were covered in kudzu vines.

.

Take a ride around town near the old Whitesburg High School. They are letting the old campus go to pot. It looks trashy. Something needs to be done. Check this out, everybody, and send in your complaints. Who should we send them to?

(You are correct; the current condition of the old School Hill campus is a disgrace. One would expect that with all the school taxes we pay, including those attached to our utility bills, that money could be made available to put at least one man and a weed trimmer to work.)

.

So glad to see that we have an honest man running for mayor of Whitesburg, the first one since Mayor Howard.

.

I’m a resident from Whitesburg. I moved away years ago. I came back to visit. I stopped by Dairy Queen for lunch. I didn’t get my discount. I ordered hotdogs and got a fish sandwich. I don’t know what their problem is, but I definitely won’t eat there anymore.

(Honest mistakes can and do happen — here and elsewhere. Did you mention your problem to the Dairy Queen staff? To our knowledge, the place is generally praised for its cleanliness and the quality of its fastfood menu.)

.

I have a wonderful life, a wonderful family and I thank God for that. Thank you, Jesus.

.

I’d like to speak my piece about the food stamp office in Letcher County. I got out of work about two months ago. Nobody at that office can do their jobs. I have had to turn in the same paperwork three or four different times and I still don’t have food stamps. If I was an illegal alien, would I already have my food stamps?

.

What is the address to send a renewal to pay for The Mountain Eagle? I haven’t gotten my card in the mail and I am wondering if it is due. I’d appreciate someone telling me in Speak Your Piece. Thank you.

(Thanks for asking. Our mailing address for renewals or any other matter is The Mountain Eagle, P.O. Box 808, Whitesburg, Kentucky 41858)

Has anyone seen a hooker on a cane trying to make money to buy pills? It’s sad.

.

If you run around with scum, you are scum. Think about it.

.

To a man who lives at Sandlick: If I were you I would be ashamed that I married that woman and all I do is abuse her by working her like a slave. You don’t deserve her. I’m going to take her away from you.

.

I think the bridge at Mc- Donald’s going up toward Pine Mountain needs to be fixed because you have to straddle the potholes and a tire could get busted out if you hit it just right.

.

To a certain person: Now you have started telling your grandkids tall tales about me. It just shows how pathetic you are. It doesn’t bother me a bit. As far as hypocrisy is concerned, you would know all about that. One day you will pay for it.

.

So here is a mom with four kids already and she and her man are working full time just to hold everything together. They can’t afford another kid, but tough. Guess what? The chain store where Mom works for minimum wage just got a special exemption to cut birth control pills off of Mom’s health insurance. Why? Because the CEO thinks birth control is a sin. Guess whose side Mitch McConnell is on? The company’s side, of course, not mom’s side. I guess he feels that birth control is a sin, too. Does he? No, he knows where the money is.

.

This is to the person with the comment about the community centers: If you are not a senior and you don’t attend the community centers, then you don’t know what you are talking about because Boone Fork was having anywhere from 18 to 20 some people attending. Now, we have moved ours to Hemphill. Before we moved, Hemphill had three to five people attending. What is being done with KRADD’s money that is being sent out for the community centers to buy their food with. The menus in Letcher County are never the menus that KRADD sends out. Why? Someone please give me an answer to this.

.

To the person commenting about Judge/Executive Jim Ward and downgrading two magistrates: In my opinion we have two magistrates who are not yes men. The other magistrates are yes men. We have a judge who has no idea what is going on, and he is not for Letcher County.

.

If a certain someone doesn’t learn to quit drinking everybody else’s drinks in the office, I’m going to have to call the health department. You know who you are.

.

Wouldn’t it be great if everybody gave like everybody could?

.

You better watch when you go into the Family Dollar Store at Jenkins. That skinny woman will say you stole something when you didn’t. She’ll even come to the car on you. It’s a shame that you can’t go to the Dollar Store without them thinking that you stole something.

.

A cab service is very much needed in Letcher County. I know we have LKLP, but if you have a vehicle registered in your name, even if it doesn’t run, they will not allow you to ride on their service. A cab service would help a lot of people who don’t have a way to get around.

(It is hard to imagine how a well-run cab service could not make a profit in Letcher County.)

.

Is House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi insane? Her body language looks like she is.

.

Is there anyway besides the Lord himself to stop those killings in Chicago? They said there were 83 shootings and 20 people killed. There were four shootings in 15 minutes. My mind won’t grab hold of that. To have that going on in this country and to not even have it mentioned on the news absolutely floors me. I feel sorry for those people. I have friends in Chicago; one of them is a banker.

.

It doesn’t matter where people take their dogs, it is their business. If I want to take my dogs somewhere, I will. People need to mind their own business. If they leave the dog in a hot car, that is totally different. You need to worry if people leave their children in a vehicle.

.

I had a wonderful time at the Ermine Senior Citizen’s Center. Thank you, Elizabeth Mason, for the hard work and the true, honest smiles. We do hope you will get to come back. Also, I would like to mention that the food was outstanding. God bless you.
