Speak Your Piece

E-m@il address In addition to the telephone and the U.S. Mail, The Mountain Eagle accepts comments to Speak Your Piece by electronic mail. Our address is: mtneagle@bellsouth.net

To the Jenkins City Police or the Letcher County Sheriff ’s Department or whoever: Someone is going to get killed because of the way certain people drive between Rocky Hollow and Burdine. Please do something before someone gets killed.

.

Thank God the county employees did not get the pay raise before the election. If they had we might have the same bunch of clowns for another term.

.

To a certain person who drives around with a crucifix hanging from the window of his vehicle: Do you think that crucifix is going to save your life? It’s not, because everybody knows what kind of mistakes you’ve made in life. The Lord knows it, too.

One of these days your luck is going to come to an end. Just like the song says, ‘When the walls come tumbling down.’

.

Just when I thought I had heard everything, I hear about a man who draws five hundred dollars a month and can’t even afford to eat, and they are now making him pay forty dollars for co-pay. People can’t even eat and they want them to make co-pays. They ought to take that co-pay and send it over to ISIS and let them have it for a while. People can’t pay that.

.

The ‘t-Rump’ administration has destroyed 47 environmental protection regulations and is working on wrecking 31 more. If you voted for him and one of your kids gets sick, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing it’s your fault.

.

While eating at a certain sit-down restaurant I found a frozen dead cockroach in my ice. Forewarning: Be cautious of what you might find in your drink. Have a great day.

.

I read the comment in Speak Your Piece about the poor female cop. The people up in my neck of the woods are very happy she is gone, and there are several reasons why. Even though I don’t think she was very good at her job, she got a big award from Danny Webb and she couldn’t even accept that graciously. Instead, she has to do ‘her thing.’ Just imagine being pulled over by her two or three times for no cause, yet she will go out of her way to arrest you. That’s a fact, not a comment.

.

Those who are spreading the Republican propaganda through Speak Your Piece need to be taken out and beaten to a pulp with a baseball bat.

.

A simple and honest question to Republicans: If you supported Ronald Reagan and his order to then- Russian leader Gorbachev to ‘tear down that wall,’ how in this world do you support Donald Trump’s desire to build a wall across the southern United States? I am asking this question in all sincerity and would love to have an honest and respectful response. Thank you.

.

After two years of telling us twenty-four hours a day that Hillary Clinton was going to win, Trump won and Hillary lost. So why would I believe anything the mainstream media says after that? They lost their credibility after that.

.

The outgoing county judge/executive and magistrates finally gave a well-deserved raise to the county’s workforce. Why did they wait until they were leaving office? The answer is that it is unsustainable. They wanted to put the new administration on the spot. That is a low blow to our hardworking county employees in the long run. That was a cruel thing to do, even from this bunch of jokers.

.

Build the wall. This is from the number one infidel, redneck, homophobic, racist bigot, Bible-thumping, shotgun- carrying, squirrel hunting son of a gun. Let’s get America right, boys.

.

There are two sportscasters I like, and both of them are Stephen A. Smith. Thank you very much.

.

Way to go, Letcher County Jail. You put those ‘vape’ cigarette’ in there and let them smoke, but they still don’t have anything in the commissary to eat or drink. That is just great.

.

Dear Speak Your Piece: Since the Democrats took over the House our country has been going down ever since. The month of December was the worst in the history of U.S. business. That is exactly what the Democrat idiots want. The poor men who went and fought in the Vietnam War were kicked in the you-know-what for going to fight in the war, but they were fighting against communism and socialism. They now have to live with this Democrat bull. If you go to starving, blame it on the Democrats in Washington. It’s all on them now.

.

The dumb hillbilly is still waiting on an answer to the question I submitted. Why doesn’t the Appalshop have concerts anymore? I’ve seen some great concerts there in the past and can’t figure out what has changed to cause the Appalshop to stop having them.

.

To a certain young lady: Years ago we shared a very spiritual kiss when we were together in a pickup truck. I’m not going to tell your name or mine, but you know who I am. Yes, you are married; I understand that. But the sparks I felt that night I have never forgotten for all these years. And I still say it’s worth revisiting. All I can say is this: We shared a wonderful kiss in my dad’s truck at your papaw’s. That’s all I’m going to say.

.

It’s time to refill my medicine. I can’t wait to see that beautiful woman who works there.

.

If you believe in the Rapture teaching and your church teaches it, I urge you to read II Thessalonians 2:1- 4. Also read Ephesians 6:11, which says we are to stand against Satan. Jesus is not coming to rapture anyone to heaven. He will bring a team with him, which is what it’s talking about in I Thessalonians 4:17.

.

I once read in Speak Your Piece where someone said they didn’t believe Jesus was ever going to come back. If you count time as God in II Peter 3:8, a day is a thousand years. That said, it has only been a little over two days that Jesus has been gone. I know there are people who don’t believe the Lord stayed to help thousands of people who have never had good Bible teachers in Christian nations, let alone in the atheist nations. Everyone will be in the spirit body by then without flesh hang-ups, which will help. Read Revelations 19:15-16.

.

I think the county or state needs to go up in Dinah Blair Hollow on Big Cowan. When I go by that place that’s got all that stuff beside the road and I hit something with my car, the state or county is going to have to pay to get my car fixed. They need to get that cleaned up.

God Almighty couldn’t keep things under control, and if I understand the Bible correctly He is perfect. So I don’t expect anything of Donald Trump, Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George H.W. Bush, who I think was a good man. Ronald Reagan was my Adolf Hitler, but he was still an imperfect man. But anyway, let’s all be kind to one another as best we can.

Danny Webb finally did something he should have done a long time ago — lay those two people off. We didn’t need either one of them, anyhow. Nobody likes them.

.

Hey, new guy on the almighty court. Trump has a right to get his wall built. America has a right to be protected from these thugs and drug runners who are coming across the border into America. All you lefties probably have armed guards protecting you. Most Americans don’t. And on this other subject — abortion: Hey, new guy, we thought you might keep us taxpayers from paying blood money for abortions. You let us down there, too, didn’t you?

.

I understand there is a man running around stealing the white propane gas tanks out of people’s yards. People need to put some sort of camera up so they can catch this thief. Thank you very much and have a blessed day.

.

I was in Whitesburg the other day and ran upon a black vehicle with a badge on the door, lights on the top, and a guy walking around with black fatigues on, tops and bottoms, badges and everything. I would like to know how this is legal under the law for these people to run around like this. I know this gentleman in particular. He lives up in the Mayking area. The closest thing he ever came to the police academy or the Army is just watching it on TV. This ought to be against the law.

.

If you happen to have a beautiful physique and you have looked good all of your life, enjoy that, but don’t get down on the other people who don’t have it, because it could just as easily have been you.

.

I went to the pharmacy yesterday to pick up my medicine and I got to see that beautiful little woman who works there. She is so pretty.

.

To a certain pastor at a certain church at Neon: You need to teach your men in church not to be running out and hugging up on the women in stores. That’s a bad way to be teaching your congregation — sneaking up behind women and grabbing them and hugging them. You need to teach them that it is not appropriate as a Christian man.

.

I just got my Mountain Eagle — I love my Mountain Eagle — and saw where someone stole that noose from back when they hanged that fellow in 1910 or whenever. Listen, I cast spells, and I’m telling whoever got it to send it back in. I’m going to give you six weeks before I start casting. It will happen to someone in your family, big time. So send that thing back to where it belongs.

.

All you coon hunters with these valuable dogs better be careful, because in the Dunham, Beefhide, and Jenkins area they are putting poison out for the coyotes illegally. Something needs to be done. These guys are leasing property and they are absolutely leaving enough poison to kill every animal in the state of Kentucky. This really needs to be checked on.

.

I was reading in the paper where someone was complaining about the laying off of the ladies who were in the garbage office where you pay your bills. I agree with the person who said these are two very kind ladies who will help you in any way they can. I appreciate them being there for so many years and knowing during that time that I was not going to get jumped onto about something. Now, over there, where you pay your water bill, that’s a little bit different. Those people in that office are not very pleasant. You will get mad every time you are in there and you won’t get the help you need if you have problems around your home and you need something done.

.

Hey, Democrats. What goes around comes around. How do you like it? Ha ha.

.

Some of us remember the Berlin Wall and some of us remember reading about the Great Wall of China. However, five billion dollars is just a down payment. The whole wall would cost two hundred and fifteen billion dollars. In other words, we can’t afford the wall.

.

Good morning, Jesus. pray that my day will be filled with good thoughts and not to think negatively about anyone. Thank you.

.

Here’s what’s on mind, 9/11, Ground Zero. Why in the world would they let the Muslims erect a statue, nine feet tall, on Ground Zero telling people to become Islamic? It doesn’t make sense. Weren’t fifteen or sixteen of those guys [from Saudi Arabia] who did this damage, this catastrophe, on the United States? And you all let them put a statue there? Slowly but surely they are creeping in. It makes no sense. You rattle my chain and I just want to slap the daylights out of somebody over this. God bless America.

(The ‘statue’ to which you refer is a sculpture made to resemble a piece of candy wrapped in the flag of Saudi Arabia. There are 20 of the nine-foot-tall sculptures now on display at the new World Trade Center complex in New York City. Each sculpture represents a member nation of the international forum for the governments and central banks of 19 individual countries and the European Union known as the G20, or Group of Twenty. The United States is a member of the G20.)

.

Yes, I wonder who a certain person is going to blame for Prince Brad’s most recent seven-day jail stay. It’s always someone else’s fault but his own.

.

I want to speak my piece about our local government. I am very glad the new fiscal court members went in and did what they had to do to straighten up some of what the previous officials did. I also think we’ll get straightened out and have some money, maybe, for some of the senior citizens centers to open back up. Now I want to speak my piece about the federal government. We need to have term limits, big time, to stop these Representatives and Senators from staying in office until they die. Term limits is the only thing that will ever straighten this country back out. I am a big believer in that.

.

I think a tornado hit on Pert Creek. There’s so much garbage all over the place there must have been a tornado that touched down.

(That ‘trash tornado’ must have touched down in every corner of Letcher County. We can’t remember a time when we’ve seen more garbage strewn across our beautiful county than what we see now. If our new county officials do nothing else but find a way to clean up the eyesores created by a few they will be heroes in the eyes of many.)

.

Tonight I heard on a news program that the Democrat strategists compared the federal workers facing the lack of a paycheck to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. I have had PTSD since 1968 and I have missed paychecks because of PTSD. I still receive counseling for PTSD from the Veterans Administration, and I want to tell all you Democrats that the difference between PTSD and missing a paycheck is like a ripple and a tsunami. Thank you.

.

It was all over the television about a rope they used for a hanging in Whitesburg about a hundred years ago, and now they’ve lost part of it. They act like someone stole some of the most precious stuff ever from the courthouse. I just don’t see what the point is.

(The point is that a major part of Letcher County’s history has gone missing. Also, the story about the hanging noose would not have beenall over the television’ if said television stations hadn’t ‘borrowed’ the idea from The Mountain Eagle, where the report first appeared.)

.

If former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher was known as The Iron Lady, what is Speaker of The House Nancy Pelosi? This little 78-year-old woman has proven that she will stand toe to toe with one of the most powerful men on earth and unflinchingly say, ‘No.’ When you hear the sound of glass breaking it is probably Donald Trump’s ego. This 72-year-old man baby who has bullied his way through life must now recognize that personality does not qualify him to be an effective president. He has two remaining years of his term to learn from Lyndon Johnson and others how to be persuasive if he wants to get things done. Can you imagine Donald Trump being humble? Ha. When pigs fly.

.

If Trump is prevented from ‘building the wall,’ then the United States will not last very much longer as the free nation it is today. Yes, it will go on being called the USA in name, but it will never again be ‘The God-graced nation’ it once was should the Democrat Party win the contest on ‘How to build a wall.’ A wall built out of words — propaganda — is really not a physical wall. However, a wall built out of solid matter cannot be penetrated without special effort. If the United States is forced to allow an unnumbered or unlimited number of immigrants into the United States, then the United States will be taken over by the ‘vast number’ of aliens, and a new constitution established. God bless Donald Trump.

To my unicorn: I love and miss you and the kids. From your knight.

The circuit court judge should make reasonable bonds so we can make room in this crowded jail. And somebody needs to check in on the bets being made on whether inmates take their meds. Gambling is illegal and they charge us for indigent packs that are supposed to be free. And when they give meds they let the diabetics stick their bloody hands over our cups for meds.
