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

I don’t see what the Mexican wall is going to do to fight pain pills since pain pills are made in the United States. Meth is homegrown in the U.S.A., too. So why do we blame the drug problem on the Mexicans or the Guatemalans or whatever they are? The drug problem is an American pharmaceutical problem. We should make them pay for the cleanup.

.

I tried for five rings to call ‘Ridin’ Around Listenin’ to the Radio’ to pledge money for ‘Speak Your Pieces’ on WMMT. I guess I’ll just have to mail it to them in this envelope they sent my granddaughter. They’ll get their money, but I wish they would answer the phone so they could realize someone is making a pledge.

.

To the lady on Bill Moore Branch who is married to a friend of mine: Lady, you don’t know what you are doing. You’ve let that grown adult son of yours destroy the marriage. I know your husband; I worked with him for years, and he’s a good hardworking man. Your son stayed on the computer all night long while your husband was out working, just like he has all of his life.

.

One question only to the person who called in about the woman and her little children on SSI: Have you ever been neighbor-enough to go ask them, ‘Do you all need anything?’ or ‘Can I help you?’ instead of just throwing them off? One of these days the same thing might happen to you and this woman might be able to help you but will turn you down instead. If I were you I would be ashamed of myself for putting something like that in Speak Your Piece. Be a neighbor, not a fool.

.

I just saw the story about eight people at Jeremiah being caught with drugs and four of them accepting offers of rehab. I don’t believe in rehab. That is just taking a bite of ice cream away from them and giving them a sucker to suck on. I have a brother who was hooked on morphine and heroin. He got saved and quit cold turkey and never taken a drug since. All rehab does is add another stick to the fire.

.

Any one of the framers of our constitution had more knowledge and wisdom and a higher IQ than 95 percent of the people we have elected in Washington.

.

They keep blaming us ‘baby boomers’ for breaking Social Security. They don’t tell you how many baby boomers are already dead, or how many got ready to draw Social Security and dropped dead after getting only a couple of checks. I’m tired of the baby boomers getting the blame.

.

This woman I know has a handicapped daughter and her husband has been gone for a while. Now she has taken in someone who everybody tells her will take everything she’s got, but she just won’t listen.

.

I just want to give my opinion about someone who would call in and ridicule people about their garbage and them being on SSI. It’s OK for you to talk about the adults, but a child on SSI cannot help how he or she lives. It’s sad that all you have to do is ridicule your neighbor. One of the Ten Commandments says love thy neighbor as thyself. You need to get on your knees and start praying, Karma is going to come back at you. Don’t put yourself about your neighbor. Have a great day.

.

I think it takes someone lower than a snake’s belly to go and try to pay delinquent taxes and take a home away from a very little child who is living there. I wouldn’t do that to a child. If you have such harsh feelings about the garbage around their home then you should volunteer to help clean it up. Let’s try to improve Letcher County by loving people, and then we can go from there and clean up Letcher County.

If people who come to this country are offended by our flag, our constitution, our way of life and all the other things we hold dear, then why did they come here from their beloved country?

.

I was wondering if the people who put on the show at the golf course could help the people in Jenkins put on a good show at Jenkins Days.

.

I wish I could get a job like the worker at Jenkins Elementary School who gets paid to work bake sales for the PTO. Thank you.

( And this upsets you why?)

.

To the person who got on the Internet and on Facebook and said certain other people do not have Confederate ancestors: How do you know? You are a liar and you know you are a liar. The person you are referring to has proof.

.

They talk about making America great again. Do we want to go back to the times when my grandmother couldn’t vote just because she was a woman? Do we want to go back to the times when we had outhouses instead of indoor toilets and running water in the house? Do we want to go back to the time when people lived in shacks instead of trailers? Do we want to go back to places and times people don’t remember, but just read about?

.

When you have an appointment to get an alignment done on your car you expect to have it done at that time or around that time. Everybody gets behind, occasionally, and it can take a few extra minutes, but when you sit there an hour while the mechanic is on the phone, that is uncalled for. I guess if he can afford to turn away business I can afford to take mine somewhere else. Thank you.

.

Why doesn’t the City of Jenkins do something about that bunch who play corn hole in the park every night?

.

Does anyone else in the Stinking Branch neighborhood smell a strange odor coming out of a certain trailer? Well I do and I have a pretty good idea about what kind of odor it is.

.

To a certain fellow who claims to be a Christian: Are you going to confess to what you were trying to do behind your uncle’s back with his wife? Are you going to tell your wife the truth?

.

That woman driving that blue convertible in Jenkins is smoking hot.

.

I want to thank all the Democrats who are running for president and I want to thank the mainstream media for the way they cover Trump. They did this before and it got Trump elected. Some of those candidates have a little bit of left wing loon in them. If they’ll just keep a microphone in front of some of them Trump will win in a landslide in 2020. I am not criticizing the candidates or the media, because without Trump even running a single commercial they will put him back in office.

.

I noticed at the Little League field in Whitesburg they had signs up that say, ‘Before you complain, have you volunteered?’ I love baseball and both of my boys are playing. I tried to volunteer for a long time, but they didn’t have any room because they had the same coaches for years and years. I’m not complaining, but volunteering is just something certain people do.

.

To a certain Millstone man: You need to quit sitting and gawking at another man’s wife at a certain place of business. I would never in my wildest dreams thought you would have done that.

.

Thanks, Jerry and Patty, for the mushrooms. We enjoyed every one of them. We really appreciate it.

.

Have you noticed that when you get a call from people claiming to be with ‘Social Security’ or ‘black lung’ the return numbers are slightly blurred? This is so they can say they didn’t call you. These people are scammers. Do not take their calls and listen to them. You are good people. Be wise. One of the numbers is 1-740-672-2127.

.

On the Saturday night before Easter, we were in a certain grocery store in the 10-items or less checkout lane. We had five items. Two women with a cart full of groceries went in front of us and got waited on despite their being in the 10-items or less lane. Everybody should have to follow the rules, and the grocery store should start enforcing its own rules and have people wait in the line where they should be. Thank you.

.

I’m calling in reference to a comment made about a house being torn down in Doty Creek: If the caller isn’t big enough to say this to the people in question then he is not very worthy at all. If I were him, especially considering that nobody else in the hollow likes him including his own family, I would keep my mouth shut.

.

I would like to leave a message to a certain person who came out of Pistol City on April 22 in a Toyota Corolla with the emergency flashers flashing. Emergency flashers are for emergencies. I followed you up the bypass in Whitesburg. You passed up the hospital and went to McDonald’s. If you’re late, get your hindend out of the bed earlier. Emergency flashers are made for emergencies. I have a problem with what you did. The next time you do that to me I am going to call the law and have them pick you up for being late to work.

.

I think it’s a shame that churches will take the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the most sacred holiday there is, and celebrate the Easter bunny by having little kids out hunting for Easter eggs. I think that is awful. Wake up and put Jesus first or not at all. Thank you very much.

.

So you don’t like Jenkins Police Officer Mike Garner. Let me tell you one thing: He’s only doing his job and he’s the best cop Jenkins has ever had. You had to be out doing something wrong or he wouldn’t have pulled you over. All of the other officers need to take training from him. I’m glad he’s here and I hope he stays. This place is a lot safer with him. Maybe we’ll get rid of some of the drugs.

.

I say God bless America and lay off our president. There are a lot of crooks out there, but our president is not a crook. And I stand on the words of what he says. God bless America. We’re going to make it great again.

.

Just a thought : If the county is so worried about money, why don’t they fire the dog warden? Apparently he is being paid to do nothing. Thank you.
