I am glad that President Donald Trump is continuing to drive nails in his political coffin as he berates the late Senator John McCain. While McCain was in Vietnam dodging bullets and spending five years as a prisoner of war, Donald Trump was being coddled by his rich parents and dodging the draft as he rode around the golf course complaining about his sore tootsie. I’ll bet the other world leaders in reference to Donald Trump’s being elected President of the United States are saying, ‘I thought them Yanks were smarter than that.’

I am so happy we have a new store in Whitesburg. I am so glad we have choice in this county. We no longer have just one store that thinks it can take everybody’s business.

.

I would like to ask the Letcher County Water and Sewer Department to come up in Sandlick and look at the creek. It starts as mostly orange-colored from the fire department on down, but them somebody is putting something in the water to make it change colors from orange to aqua blue. Someone please come and test this water.

.

Even though Russian officials had close contact with 14 members of President Trump’s inner circle before his election and leading up to and after his inauguration, our federal counterintelligence authorities were wrong for looking into whether any of those 14 people were on Russia’s payroll? They would have been charged with derelict of duty if they had not taken action. Imagine if the roles in this matter were reversed and it was Obama or Hillary’s campaigns with 14 or their advisers so close to Russia. Guarantee you the Republicans would have been all for the Mueller investigation if that had been the case.

.

Just look at all the good our president has done and just think what he could have done if he didn’t have all this bull hanging over his head the past two years. Now he’ll put the accelerator to floor. Watch him go now.

.

They’re reporting on the national news about people who are on food stamps. They are saying fewer people are on food stamps this year than last year. They apparently don’t know the reason for that is because they are cutting people off food stamps who need food stamps. It’s the locals who are doing it. They are cutting people off food stamps who need food stamps.

.

Here it is almost April and our new sheriff, Mickey Stines, still hasn’t come into Doty Creek, gone into the left- and right-hand forks and caught the drug cartel and put them in jail. The drug business is still going on in the neighborhood of Doty Creek, and it’s because people in the courthouse choose not to do anything about it.

(Just like the sheriffs before him whom you also criticized frequently, Sheriff Stines can’t just drive down to your neighborhood and round up all the neighbors you don’t like and charge them with whatever crime you want them to be charged with. Thankfully, the system doesn’t work that way.)

.

There is no road, stairway, or highway to either heaven or hell in yours or anyone else’s front yard, backyard, garden or whatever. You’re going to find it yourself or nowhere at all. But if all this whiny passiveaggressive bickering in the paper is what we’re going to find in heaven then maybe I have to reconsider my life choice. Thanks and God bless, I think?

.

When Terry Perkins was running for constable in District Four he made some promises, but he hasn’t kept any of them, especially his promise that he was going to clean up a certain neighborhood and take care of a certain bully. We now know Terry Perkins is not the right man for the job. If I had known what he was going to do I wouldn’t have voted for him.

.

Just imagine all the wild things this nutcase Trump will commence to doing now that he doesn’t have a special prosecutor watching him anymore. It’ll be so bad they’ll have to come up with a new word for unhinged.

.

Mr. President, God bless you, God bless your family, and God bless the United States of America. You had a plan when you were running for office for Mexico to pay for the wall. I don’t know what your plan was, but obviously it fell through. Why don’t you get your people to figure up how much it costs each of us taxpayers for every illegal that comes to the United States and send the bill to Mexico? That would get you started on your wall. Do the same for all those other countries.

.

Our president shut down an interagency task force on violent right wing groups. It’s called pandering for votes. People of character would never vote for him.

.

To a certain person: Don’t you worry about a path to heaven going through my yard. You better worry about your own path and where it’s going.

I hope you print this, because I have enough paperwork to take certain lawyers in Whitesburg to the Kentucky Bar Association. Certain lawyers think we the people are dumb here in Letcher County, but it may be his or her secretary who is filling out the paperwork to send in to the Bar.

.

I am deeply saddened that neither the Letcher County Public Schools, the new superintendent, nor anyone else has done anything about the moral failure of a certain teacher. I guess this one more issue that’s been swept under rug and won’t be taken care of until it brings about horrible consequences.

.

I see the Democrats always talk about every single vote. How come they never talk about every single legal vote?

.

To the Craft’s Colly Kentucky Wildcats lover: Tennessee kicked Kentucky’s hind-end two times this year. Number One? You better go back one to zero; that’s what Kentucky’s going to be. They will get sent to the house. This is your Louisville Card.

.

Certain events make me wonder about insurance scams. How is a person who was caught scamming health insurance companies years ago able to still keep a job? Makes me wonder.

.

I’m the Hillbilly Poet. I’ve grown old, so what I do is listen to is Next Generation Music, which is on Fridays on WMMT.

.

Let me tell you something, honey. How do you know how many women’s husbands I’ve slept with, unless you’ve been with them, too? How do you know how much time I have left? A Christian doesn’t do what you do, either.

.

I would like for the dog warden, if we have one in Letcher County, to come up in Chopping Branch. There are two big brown bulldogs running loose and tearing up people’s garbage. I just wish the dog warden would show up and tell these people to put their dogs up. They are really tearing up the garbage.

.

To the caller who commented on seeing people at the walking track: Whoever is meeting at the walking track in Whitesburg — whether they are married or not, or whether they are from Virginia or not — is really none of your business. Let them do whatever turns them on and keep your nose to yourself. Bye.

.

I sure am pleased our bridge has opened back up here at Whitco. Greg Hale, you did a wonderful job on it, honey, and you did it fast. I sure do appreciate it. I got tired of going up and down the road and having to pass that old junk pile to get on the highway. We all at Whitco love you. God bless you.

.

I have a lot of respect for John McCain. He was a war hero. President Trump has rights to criticize McCain under the First Amendment.

.

In response to the Dear Heavenly Father question: Who gave you the right to question the Creator? Read the Book of Job, for God is not bound by the laws of space and time. He can make one day equal one thousand years, and the height and width of space cannot be measured. It is not written anywhere in the Bible that we only have zero to seventy or eighty years left. Man was created to live by choice. We have the choice to believe that Jesus is our Savior and that he died for our sins. Question: Are you being fair with your Heavenly Father? Now kick that around in your mind. Thank you.

.

I’m calling about mainstream media predicting the election so bad in 2016. They preached to us for two years about the polls that said Hillary was going to win. When I went to bed that night I told myself that Hillary would be the president because all these media people know what they’re talking about. Well, they don’t. Instead of saying ‘we messed up’ the next day they doubled down and blamed Trump for winning. I’m not a big Trump fan, but he won the election. I think this mainstream media is lower than a snake’s belly in a wagon rut.

.

The New Green Deal means everything is free. Nobody has to work.

(The New Green Deal has as much chance of becoming law as there is a day coming when ‘everything is free’ and ‘nobody has to work’ — none.)

.

Cumberland has a new cop who thinks he is the savior of Harlan County. He’s a young man who is even writing tickets to people who are walking down the street. If you come to Cumberland during his shift you better plan on getting pulled over. I saw him write a guy a ticket for a busted taillight the other day even though the car was sitting parked in this man’s driveway. They will get rid of him before long.

.

I didn’t think people living in the housing authority homes were supposed to have guns. It also looks like people would keep their kids away from other people’s cars when they are riding bicycles.

.

I thought the government housing in Neon, Jenkins and Whitesburg was for low-income people, but apparently not, because they rent them to everybody. Thank you.

.

I wonder how many people out there in this world would agree with me when I say videogames and drugs are destroying our kids? How many agree with that?

.

To a certain caller: If people go to the walking track and do their thing, what is to you? Are you jealous?

.

I am disappointed that The Mountain Eagle didn’t print all I said about the rapture teaching and the events that are going to happen, according to the Bible. You that read and print Speak Your Piece be honest, how much time have you spent in your lifetime reading the Bible? Moving on, the main thing to know is not to worship the first supernatural one that comes, Satan, saying he is Jesus. His message might be, ‘Let’s get your family and friends together to talk. I’ll see you don’t get hurt. All you have to do is worship me.’ Who do you think will be the ones crying for the mountains to fall on them when they see Jesus coming in the clouds?

(Might you have first asked why your comment about the ‘rapture teaching’ wasn’t printed in its entirety before hurling an insult? The full comment wasn’t printed because we couldn’t understand what you were saying because the tape became garbled during the recording. It happens.)

.

You’re right, the word rapture is not in the Bible so don’t teach it. The word trinity is not in the Bible so don’t teach it. Then they say well these three are one. Well, go to John 17:20-26 and read about Jesus praying for his disciples. He said they may be as one as we are one. Did he have 12 disciples or one? Did he have 12 heads on one body? People, that doesn’t even make sense.

.

President Kennedy wrote a book titled ‘The Disuniting of America.’ What we hear all the time, day in and day out, is commentators on the hour trying to divide the people in this country. They must think we are all stupid.

(The book, ‘The Disuniting of America: Reflections on a Multicultural Society,’ was not written by President Kennedy. Rather, it was written in 1991 by Pulitzer Prizewinning historian Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., who was a former advisor to the Kennedy administration.)

.

About these people who can’t take their garbage out because they’re too old, well, what did they do before they got old? They were juking their yards up. I think they ought to have their grandkids and kids help them clean it up. Everyone of them have children. They should be asking for their children to come and help them get the trash out of their yard. Thank you.

.

I thought I had the nastiest neighbor in Letcher County, but when you get out in the county you see that nearly everybody’s yard is like that. And these old abandoned houses should be torn down. The county should give the owners so many days to tear an abandoned house down, and if they don’t the county should take that property over. I don’t care if it is private property; if it’s nasty and it’s an eyesore it should be destroyed.

This cop in Cumberland sure is a strange cat. I threw my hand up and waved at him and he pulled me over, wondering what I meant by that. He is a sight.

.

‘Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord.’ You might ask why He would do that. I say this is the reason: ‘My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.’ Hosea 4:6 and Amos 8:11.

.

Has anybody besides me noticed that every time Kentucky gets beat, like they did when they got blown out by Tennessee, they put them into the tournament the next game to play a team of nobodies? I’ll tell you what Kentucky is; they are a failure. Hate to be a party pooper.

(Apparently you are not familiar with the way seeding works in the NCAA Tournament.)
