When you go to a certain grocery store you need to check your receipt if you buy something that is on sale. Twice this month they charged me the regular price instead of the sale price and I had to go back and get the money.

.

This is an FYI to the Letcher Fiscal Court and the county judge/executive concerning the Letcher County Road Department: There needs to be some training in the office and on attitude, customer skills, and working with the public. Also, the new dog warden needs training, too. Thank you very much.

.

I enjoyed the edition of the paper that had with it the listing of all the people who owe property taxes. One listing that stood out in my mind was the mayor of Jenkins. Doesn’t he make enough money or should we give him a raise? With his salary he should be able to pay his taxes.

.

We need to get one thing straight — the president has the right to say anything he wants to say and tweet anything he wants to tweet.

.

I honestly never thought a certain guy in Jenkins would be so stupid he would let that girl drive his brandnew truck. Man, you are only getting used.

.

When three self-appointed judges die and meet the real judge, Jesus Christ, they will realize what fools they have been and what little they have done in their life.

.

I would like to speak my piece on these moms and dads who let their children ride their four-wheelers on dirt roads. They are dusting up everything we have and aggravating us. They don’t ask permission or anything. We can’t get any law to help us but the state police, but by the time they get here the kids on the four-wheelers are gone.

.

I believe ‘The Squad’ in Washington is going to try to make America into a s-hole country.

.

Does Jenkins have a police force? They just got rid of the best police officer they ever had. He would do his job, and it’s the second time they have gotten rid of him. So, does Jenkins have a police force? Thank you, Mayor.

.

To our Letcher County Sheriff ’s Department: We would love to invite you all over to Trace Fork on Colson, where all the drug dealing and auto racing is going on up and down 1410. This place looks like a drag strip, and the drug dealing you wouldn’t believe. Highway 1410, Trace Fork, Colson. Come on over.

.

Not too long ago we frequently heard the words ‘one world’ this and ‘new world order’ and other similar terms on TV. However, other topics have taken over at this time. For instance, there is a lot of talk about securing or not securing our southern border. Some want people to come in according to our laws and others want everyone who wants to come in to be allowed. I heard one person on TV say the Green New Deal and open borders would fundamentally change America, which has been talked about a long time. It amounts to ‘one worldism.’

.

I need to let my daughter in-law know that I appreciate her and all she does for me. You are a special person in my heart. I love you a bunch. And keep on fishing.

.

Hey, blondie, I believe if I were you I would have Frankenstein checked for HIV.

.

No, I am not a fool. A fool runs his mouth. The coward goes to the cops, but a ginseng digger steals at an hour that you think not. I’ll do on my time, my dime. I’ll do it like the ginseng diggers. I’ll get away with it.

.

The hypocrisy is not really surprising when one considers that you Trump worshippers cheer and pray for a Nazi-loving, Vladimir- Putin-butt-kissing, wannabe dictator and traitor to the United States, and then you claim it’s other people who are ‘un-American.’ Nobody ‘sent for’ your worthless ancestors, either, and the best thing Americans could do for the country is to send you all ‘back where you came from,’ whether you want to go or not. Moscow should welcome such ‘patriots’ as you with open arms, right?

.

Ginseng diggers are the biggest cowards I know. They catch a man gone and then steal his ginseng.

.

I’m a resident on Craft’s Colly who would like to know who the idiot is in charge of putting those guardrails up so that they leave us no room on the road. Now we have to back up 200 to 300 feet to let a car get around and then we hope and pray to get by the next time. I hope and pray everyone in charge of this will take a drive up Craft’s Colly and see how narrow this road is.

.

We have a problem in Jenkins. We don’t have a packer truck to pick our garbage up. I have a solution for that. If the mayor and certain business owners in Jenkins would pay their taxes we could buy a new one. They are no better than I am. Everybody should pay their taxes. I pay mine, they should pay theirs. Thank you.

.

How many state police officers, sheriff ’s deputies, city police officers and others does it take to stop one old pickup truck? What I saw on Wednesday beat anything I’ve ever seen in my life. The cops could have killed somebody while trying to stop an old pickup truck. They put me in the mind of Roscoe and Enos. They had no business driving like a bunch of fools over nothing.

.

To two sisters at Pine Creek: I know you love your brother. He is a super nice guy, but he almost hit me head-on the other day in his pickup truck. Please get him out of the truck and get his eyes fixed before he gets someone killed. He is a wonderful person, but he didn’t even know he had passed a car when he nearly hit me.

.

I would like to know how the drug dealers in the Colson area are getting by with everything. You never see a police cruiser over here. They just keep selling while nothing is done about it.

.

I would like to thank our current Letcher County Fiscal Court for playing politics and keeping out AT&T and Verizon from putting highspeed Internet into Letcher County. What’s it been, 13 years of empty promises of putting high-speed Internet into Letcher County and trying to help people in this area? I would like to thank you for supporting local businesses that charge us twice as much for Internet service.

.

People blame global warming on fossil fuels, but how many millions of tons of concrete, brick and asphalt have been poured on this planet since the 1950s? Earth can’t absorb the sunshine anymore, it just heats up. That is global warming. What about the plastic out there floatingLowestinPricethe ocean? Humans are the ones destroying the earth, not fossil fuels. Think about it.

.

Here’s some good advice to you women out there who read The Mountain Eagle: Pay attention to your husband and do right by him, because if you leave him by himself he will eventually cheat on you. I never did believe in cheating — it’s something I’ve never wanted to do — but my wife has more interest in running with her full-grown son than she does her husband. So just some good advice: Treat your husband right and he won’t cheat on you. Thank you.

.

When they call us racists, we’ll call them communists.

.

Does anyone know if theft or fraud related to anything over $500 is a felony?

.

To the person who called in about not being able to find his or her deed in the Letcher County Courthouse: I need to get in touch with you, because they’ve got my deeds all messed up.

.

As soon as Blackjewel workers miss one paycheck they have to count on handouts to pay their bills. They need to learn to manage their money better.

.

I find it amusing that all of these Trump-worshippers have to hide behind the safety of an anonymous post to spew their fascist bigotry. When I hear all you ‘good Christians’ claiming that immigrants come here to be ‘prostitutes’ and ‘drug dealers,’ I have to wonder: do your meth-head, dopedealing friends and relatives all give it away for free? Are y’all afraid somebody’s gonna cut into your profits? I catch one of your brothercousins prowling around my place again, that’s one limb of your family tree I’m going cut off on the spot.

.

I am directing my comments to all of you folks who cringe when you hear the word ‘socialism.’ Firstly, socialism is not communism. Socialist programs have been around for a long time here in the United States and other countries. Socialist programs are a means of allowing the poor and the working class citizens to share in the bounty of this wonderful nation. If you are adverse to socialist programs, when you receive your Social Security retirement check or disability check or SSI check just endorse it and mail it back to the U.S. Treasury with a note that you don’t believe in socialism. When Medicaid and Medicare pay for part of your medical expenses just say, ‘No thank you, I will pay for the entire expense because I don’t believe in socialism.’ The same holds true for prescription drug plans and unemployment insurance and many other socialist programs. I am a retiree and I would hate to think of what life would be for me without these socialist programs. Before these programs were brought about most of us would have had to work until we died.

When one person suffers from a delusion it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion it is called religion.

.

This is the Harlan County Man. I just want to say that I will not vote for a Democrat anymore. They are the most sickening political party today. The Democrats in Congress offer no help for our great President Trump on the border. They will not work with President Trump to stop illegal immigrants who come here and break our laws. They are destroying our nation and the Democrats refuse to do their jobs. I, the Harlan County Man, says this: God has His hand on our President Trump and with God’s help all things are possible. God bless our President Trump and the people that are with him.

.

This is just to let the Democrats know that we here in America still have the freedom of speech, so our great President Donald Trump can say what he pleases to say and if you Democrats don’t like that then you need to leave our nation. If you are offended by what he said then you need to get over it. How many times have you lying Democrats offended the American people by calling us ‘deplorables,’ as Hillary Clinton did? Why don’t you Democrats shut your mouth and work with our president? We finally have a great president that is for the American people and not the coward party of Republicans or Democrats. ‘America First’ is what Trump stands for, and if you are against America and the freedom that we have, especially the freedom of speech, then pack your bags and leave. We have men and women that have given their lives for Hillary Clinton to have the freedom to call us deplorables, and they gave their lives for President Donald Trump to have the freedom to call you Democrats and enemies of America what you are. We the American people have the freedom of speech. If you are not happy, then leave.

.

We the American people now have a great president that stands for what the American people stand for. We have a bunch of circus clowns and jokers in the House and the Senate, and the American people can get along quite well without the Democratic Party and the Republican Party. Both political parties have failed the American people. Neither party will listen to the American people, so we the American people will elect our President Donald Trump in 2020, regardless of the Democrats or the Republicans. We the American people need to vote out all that are in the House now, and vote out all that are in the Senate now. All the new ones voted in could be no worse than the ones we have now that are destroying our nation. We the American people must stop the Democrats and the Republicans from destroying our nation. President Donald Trump speaks for the American people, and the American people agree with our president. We the people are Americans and America will be great again when the wicked people in the Democrat Party and the wicked people in the Republican Party are out of business and our great country is run by real Americans that think like and believe like our great American President Donald Trump does.
