The roads in Letcher County as a whole are in terrible shape. With the road up U.S. 119 up toward Payne Gap as bad as it is now, just imagine what it will be by the end of this winter. It will probably be nothing but dirt. It will be broken all to pieces. Nothing has been done except for a little stretch of road above Whitesburg. The Little Colley road is also terrible. Isn’t the state road department going to do anything?

(The blame for our awful road conditions here in Letcher County rests with those officials in Frankfort whose job it is to provide the money to pay for the maintenance that is so long overdue. Maybe someone could invite Governor Matt Bevin, Senate Leader Robert Stivers, and House Leader David Osborne to come to Letcher County and drive from Whitesburg to Jenkins and back on a dark and rainy night so they can see for themselves what a dangerous situation they have allowed to happen on their watches.)

.

The Letcher Fire Department is going to the dogs. I don’t know why they won’t make changes. If anybody wants free water all they have to do is come to the fire department.

.

When Donald Trump’s father helped keep his son out of the military with five deferments he must have known that young Donald was a liar, was stupid and a coward, and that he would get a dishonorable discharge for not being able to follow orders.

.

You know what? We have to give Mickey Stines a chance to do something about the crime that is going on in this county.

.

Thank you, Speak Your Piece, for letting me vent my frustrations about not being able to get a Lexington Herald-Leader in the paper last week. I went to the store today and they had the Herald-Leader in Jenkins. Thank you.

.

Governor Bevin got caught giving one of his friends an enormous pay raise and now he can’t find any way to do away with the pension he’s trying to take away from the public service employees, such as school teachers, police officers and others.

.

Please don’t forget about the food pantry. Thank you. Merry Christmas.

The Appalshop in Whitesburg had a bunch of good concerts in their marvelous facility, but since back in the spring they have not had any shows. What’s up, management changes or politics? I don’t have a clue. Can someone smarter than me tell this dumb hillbilly who likes music the answer?

.

Isn’t it something how the faith-healing preachers get on TV and claim to heal all of these drug addicts and thieves and liars and cancer victims? But you never see them healing a young child on TV; it’s always grownups. Why don’t they go to St. Jude’s where they have a lot of healing they could do? You know why? It’s because they are false prophets, and if you’re sending them money you are supporting them. Thank you.

.

I think the little woman who works in a certain pharmacy in Whitesburg is cute. She’s a pretty little woman.

.

One certain lady who works at one certain hospital likes the bedside, but it’s not in a way that would help anybody. If she can live with herself that is fine. There’s one thing about it, my wife will not work there and be hit on.

.

I would like to tell married women that the reason you don’t make sex tapes is because they someday will be made available for everybody else to watch. I’m talking about a certain lady who went to Virginia with a married man when she was a married lady. They got over there and did their thing in the motel. If you don’t think I know who you are, you were wearing leopard-print undergarments. You are ignorant for making this sex tape for everybody to watch.

.

I’m just calling to ask why Letcher County Judge/ Executive Jim Ward has never done any roadwork in the hollow where I live until now. Is it because an employee in his office lives in this same hollow that makes them get out working all day up here in the middle of December?

.

Suppose Dictator Trump would ask Senators Cruz, Grassley, Graham and McConnell to bow down and kiss his feet. I’ll bet they would fight each other to see who would be first in line.

.

Remember some time ago when I told you about the fellows that killed Dr. Acker’s daughter? I told you I could kill all three of them for less than the price of a hamburger. If they will let me shoot them and kill them I will even eat the hamburger. Come on, people, let’s get them the sentence they were given — death. Our families are more important than trash like that.

.

I want to create a chart with Bill Clinton on one side and Donald Trump on the other side. On that chart we will list the women that each one of them had to see which one had the most women. I remember that when Clinton was involved with this problem the mainstream media destroyed the women and left him alone. Now that Trump is in the same situation they want to destroy him but leave the women alone. What this tells you is if you want to know what a hypocrite looks like just look at the mainstream media. Right there is a perfect definition of what a hypocrite is. If it’s fair for one it’s fair for the other.

.

We see a certain troublemaker is back on Dry Fork. He was supposed to be in jail, but he’s back out running around again.

.

Have you all seen the dog groomer drama on Facebook?

.

I would like to know if anybody in Letcher County has gone through the divorce proceedings and custody battles since the Kentucky General Assembly passed the 50-50 custody law. How is this law affecting our people here in Letcher County? Are our circuit judge and DRC in favor of this law? I’m just interested in knowing how this law has been affecting parents going through child custody battles here in Letcher County. Thank you.

.

I left a message to a sandy haired lady from Pine Creek a couple of months ago asking her when she is going to come out and be what she wants to be. I know she knows what I’m talking about, because I can name places and what she was doing.

.

Nancy Pelosi talks about transparency. I guess she means like Obama’s transparent government. Remember, you have to pass it to see what’s in it.

.

I would like to ask about an old man sleeping in his car in Whitesburg near the old Sonic Drive-In building. He is there day-in and day-out. It looks like someone would help him.

.

It’s the same-old same old, isn’t it Mr. President? I saw your meeting with Nancy Pelosi and her sidekick trying to make you look bad. You stand firm, Mr. President. The American people are proud of you. We know the Democrats are trying to tear America down. On your wall; Mr. President, sign an executive order and put the military to building that wall. They’ll get it ‘did.’ You in the next few years will collect the money from Mexico. You’re a smart man, Mr. President. You’re a businessman. Mexico isn’t going to get away with it. They will pay for this wall. You know why? Because you said so, Mr. President. God bless you, God bless America, and God bless the Republicans.

.

I am learning to speak Chinese and I can already say constipation — hung chow.

.

I always thought I’d like to live under President Lincoln, but I’d be dead and gone by now. But I am living under him — Donald Trump. It’s just as good if not better than living under Lincoln because I’m alive today. Later.

.

I hope somebody from LKLP is reading this message. You know what burns my rear? I’ll tell you. A man gets out here and works his guts out and gets laid off and he can’t draw anything. Then you turn the Swap Shop on and these cheese eating people are out there selling the kerosene they get for free over the Swap Shop. The government just gave these people the kerosene to stay warm with and they are out selling it. How wrong is that? I know what I’d like to do with these deadbeat people, but I can’t say it.

.

Outgoing Letcher County Judge/Executive Jim Ward has left the county in good shape. I hope our new judge/executive doesn’t mess it all up, because we’re in good shape now. I’m afraid the new judge and the person I’m hearing he’s picked for his deputy judge will put us far back.

.

I would like to commend the people at Haymond for their good Christmas decorations. If you’re leaving Neon going toward Jenkins it is on your right. We have to stop our car and look every time we drive by. I encourage everyone who wants to see some joyful Christmas lights for the season to go by there and look at them. Thank you very much.

.

Thank you, Dr. David Narramore, for putting up a beautiful Christmas display once again. I know that what you do could not come cheap, but it is very much appreciated.

.

More than four and one half million people here illegally are getting government assistance. If you believe in open borders and having these foreigners come here, why don’t you take some of these people who are homeless into your home and take care of them?

.

Dear Speak Your Piece: I wonder what it feels like to be a cop and bust someone for marijuana when it’s legal in almost every state in the union except Kentucky? Do the police in Kentucky have even the smallest amount of feeling that they are doing something wrong? Just about every other state in the union says they are doing something wrong.

.

Every Democrat on television speaks with a forked tongue.

.

I need to vent just a little bit here. I worked at a job here in Letcher County, and I worked with a whole bunch of those immigrant boys, they called them. Last week there were about 27 or 28 people who got laid off here. Guess what? Not one of those immigrants was laid off. I would like to know what’s so special about these people. The Letcher County boys were laid off and those boys got to stay right here, working every day. I just don’t get it.

( Which business in Letcher County employs “27 or 28” what you refer to as “immigrant boys?”)

.

Why doesn’t Governor Bevin leave the pension alone in Kentucky? The Democrats will fix it. They got it here.
