Speak Your Piece



Electric bills are ridiculous. Kentucky Power Company is trying to make us pay to run their company for them. Why do I have to pay fuel adjustment? Come on, people.

. I want to wish my wonderful man Blue a happy birthday on April 21. I love you so much. Love, Boo Boo.

. To a certain person: I’m glad that you finally found a buddy who loves to hunt mushrooms as much as you do. I just hope that you are hunting them on the correct land. You better not be on my land.

. I can’t believe that you have the nerve to talk about somebody like a dog. Then when they decide to go mushroom hunting with you, all of a sudden this person is the best mushroom hunting buddy you have ever had. Only if he ever knew.

. I’ve never seen so many jealous people than there are in Letcher County. Everybody is so jealous that they can’t stand it because there is a real good constable who gets out and works. People can’t stand it because we have a good constable.

. The only smart people in Letcher County are the people who are moving out of this hellhole. People move to Pike, Perry and Knott counties where they bring in the jobs and put money into the counties, instead of this crooked bunch that puts the money in their pockets. There will never be anything here. I have been here 50 years and there has never been anything here and there never will be. Wake up and get out of this county.

. Reading the reprint of the Courier-Journal editorial ‘Welfare and working poor’ in last week’s Eagle, I am struck by two things. First, the absolute tragedy the C-J is no longer available in Letcher County, except by mail or online. Second is the stone cold fact that the Republican Party hates poor and working class people. Which brings me to this Poor and working class people who vote Republican are fools — semi-literate idiots who never bother to seek out the truth and take their information from Faux News, gossip, and whatever else fits their world belief and panders to their racial and religious fears. The Republicans have gotten well training these people to hate each other and themselves. Using racial code words like ‘welfare queen,’ the Republicans have simultaneously demonized black women and convinced whites that only they are entitled to benefits, without actually admitting that they get them. The only people who really get well from welfare are the giant corporations who pay their employees so little that the government has to subsidize their wages

with food stamps and other forms of assistance, and the big energy companies and others that get such enormous tax breaks that they make billions in profits and yet end up getting money back. They say poor people have poor ways, but some of them have stupid ways too.

. I wish people would realize how stupid these gubernatorial candidates think people from Kentucky are. All you see on television is how they are going to stand up against Obama. They know good and well that by time they get elected into office in November, Obama will be leaving office in January. They are trying to tell people they will stand up against Obama and save jobs. I’d like to know where they have saved jobs. It sure wasn’t in Letcher County. They think people in Kentucky are so stupid.

. There are wolves in eastern Kentucky. They have been around for 300 or 400 years. They are called wolves in sheep’s clothing. They are in the churches. Beware.

. This is the old cat killer. I wish you people would quit setting your cats out below my house. It’s getting to where it is bothering me to kill them. I’ll have to kill five of them this week. I do have a conscience, you know. If you don’t stop setting them out, what am I supposed to do? If you think I am going to feed them all, you are crazy. Have a big old meow day.

. There is nothing on the weekends open in Letcher County where anybody can pay a bill. Every office is closed. No dental offices are open. Banks aren’t open. I wish somebody else would see if they could get something in Letcher County.

. Do you know where the old A&P used to be in Neon? It’s now a giveaway place to help low income people. If you go there to try to get anything, this old guy that works there asks you for your Social Security number over and over. That is harassment. The food stinks and you better wash the clothes.

. It amazes me that Captain Kenny Terry and Sheriff Danny Webb still haven’t done anything about the drug dealers in Doty Creek.

. The only reason the unemployment rate has gone down in Letcher County is because people have had to move because there aren’t any jobs. For the rest of us, our unemployment has run out and we don’t get anything. The ones who want Democrats in office are the ones that sit at home on their butts, draw a check, get food stamps and get free insurance while the rest of us have to pay for it.

. God did not make gays and lesbians. He did not. Read your Bible. If you are

gay or a lesbian, that is your business. He did not make you that way.

. I can give Mitch McConnell credit for one thing. He did tell the truth. He said it wasn’t his job to bring jobs to Kentucky. For once in his life he sure told the truth. Vote for that crook again, y’all.

. I’d like to thank God that they have come out with a medication that can control people who are having dizzy spells. Thank God and bless them.

. I have very few people on my Facebook and that is the way I am going to keep it.

. Inter Mountain Cable is crock of crap. IMC stands for I am cheated. I hate the

company. Their service sucks. They have no service. It is shoddy garbage. I wish that company would fall off the face of the planet and something new would come in here.

. To a certain person: I know who you are so you better quit what you are doing. If you steal off of me one more time, all three of you will be prosecuted.

. I’m calling about the potholes in Letcher County in particular. They are terrible. This patching job that they are doing isn’t going to last. We pay taxes to get these roads done well and done right. They are not. Tires are going to be busted. Tires are going to be knocked out of line. The state needs to accept

responsibility and get these roads fixed right.

. Where is the garbage warden? Why can’t he get the City of Whitesburg cleaned up a little bit? Coming down Tunnel Hill from Dr. Chandrashekar’s office to where you turn off to the waterworks, underneath those houses on that hillside is trash knee deep. You’d think since we pay the garbage warden he would open his eyes and see what is going on around him.

.

If you have a good car and you don’t want it destroyed, don’t take it to a certain gas station. I took two cars to a certain business to have the oil changed. One didn’t even touch the dipstick and it looked like oil wasn’t put in it, but I was charged for it. The other one was two and a half quarts low. I paid for the oil change and every drop of oil, but they didn’t put the oil in it.

. I am ‘The Sword Of The Lord’ for I am a Christian soldier, a warrior in both word and deed for The Lord

Jesus Christ, and I wish to address two posts in last week’s Speak Your Piece concerning ‘false prophets.’ One post was about someone declaring the world would end in 1995 (and that end would start in Alaska) while the other inquired, ‘How many false teachings must you have to be considered a false prophet?’ Here is my biblically-based reply: First, Jesus states that no man knows when the end of this age shall occur, only that God knows when it shall come. That said, Jesus did give specific signs and many forewarning indicators that would signal Believers that He was close to returning, all of which have either now occurred or are occurring at this time. For instance, the beheading of Christian believers is a big sign that is happening now. Second, all it takes is one incorrect prophecy to make a false prophet. Read Deuteronomy 18:20. One false or incorrect prophesy does make a false prophet indeed, as does a so-called ‘prophet’ speaking on behalf of other gods, Best listen up, Muhammad.
