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

Nameless cowards who are too afraid to post their opinions on social media have been writing in to Speak Your Piece saying how Blackjewel miners should’ve saved their money. It doesn’t matter if every single miner spent all of his money on whiskey and women and wasted the rest. They rightfully earned it.

.

Dear Speak Your Piece: I am going to vote against Matt Bevin for governor. He’s the worst governor the state of Kentucky has ever had. I’m a Republican, but he has to go. This road at Payne Gap should cause every Republican in Letcher County to vote Democrat.

.

God bless the president of the United States, and condolences to all those who were killed in these mass shootings. People are blaming the president for this and they know it is not his fault. The Second Amendment gives us the right to bear an AR-15. Let’s put the blame for these mass shootings where it belongs — society. America has gone to hell in a hand basket. Raise your babies right and they won’t commit mass shootings.

.

The drug traffic on Blair Branch is getting worse on the weekends. We report it and nothing is done.

.

They put all this blamegame on everybody but Hollywood about these shootings. I don’t see how Hollywood is getting away without blame. They have made some movies about this same type of thing, so where is the blame for them?

.

I’ll bet 60 percent of what I own is made in China. When I have to buy something I can’t find it if it’s not made in China.

.

This is for Sheriff Mickey Stines: You say you want to clean up the meth problem? Well come on to Sergent. People are coming here and knocking on doors at four and five in the morning, their eyes as big as quarters. Come on down in Sergent. You will do some good.

.

It’s a shame you can’t go to the doctor and get pain medication. I am 75 years old. I broke my hip and my right knee has been broken twice, but I can’t get anything to help me from my doctor. I have to go to a pain clinic, which means you have to have $400 or $500 to be seen. It’s no wonder people sell their pills. Most of them live on a very limited income. How can you afford your pills if you don’t sell them? This is a sick society that would be people in the predicament they are being put in. Your doctor can’t even write you prescriptions for pain medication? I talked to three pain clinics today. You have to pay $105 just for an appointment. Then you have to have $400 up front to get your medicine if they even prescribe it to you. It’s no wonder why people sell their pills. This is out of hand. All pain clinics need to be shut down. I never realized this until I needed it. Trump, where are you?

.

Over the years religion has basically amounted to us killing each other to see who’s got the better imaginary friend.

.

The bunch in Jenkins who think they are on ‘Street Outlaws’ are going to end up killing somebody or each other. I saw a boy and his dad almost come to blows in Hardee’s while arguing over a Mustang and a Camaro. The police officer sat there laughing about it, saying he couldn’t intervene in a family squabble. These people don’t know how stupid they looked while arguing over a stupid car. Instead of worrying about four-wheelers, they need to worry about the cars racing every night in Jenkins. Thank you.

.

God did not create the races. Any physical anthropologist will tell you that there is no such thing as race. The genetics of any population overlap too much with any other population to consider them to be different races. People have evolved to be dark skinned in parts of the world where the sun is strongest, light skinned where it is weak. If you took a population of Africans and placed them in Scandinavia, they’d be white in 10,000 years, and vice versa. Science beats myth and superstition every time.

.

I have an automatic .223 rifle. It has killed no one. It does not look like the AR-15. The liberals want my rifle as bad as the AR-15. Our constitution has to stand.

.

The first verse in the Bible about the first heaven and earth age when God’s children were all in a spirit body. Verse two through the first chapter shows God going another way by creating human flesh beings. Many of God’s spirit children had rebelled against Him, which brought this action. God worked 5,000 years — or five days by God’s time. In II Peter 3:8, He prepared the lights, temperature, water, soil, animals, plants and jobs to sustain them. In Verse 26, God must be in heaven in His laboratory because He is talking to His spirit children, who I think might have become our future scientists and inventors. By the end of the sixth day, He had created a male and a female of each race, and he told them to be fruitful and to multiply and to replenish the earth.

.

If you are a true Christian you should order the new book, ‘The Immoral Majority: Why Evangelicals Chose Political Power over Christian Values.’ This book is written by Ben Howe, a true conservative and a true believer in God, and shows how the leaders of the Christian Right have sold their souls to the toxic partisanship of Donald Trump and today’s Republican Party. It is on sale now.

.

I was just wondering if certain school official is going to pay a certain politician’s property taxes for him since he apparently can’t pay them.

.

I would like to say that these killings they had in El Paso and Dayton are horrible. It is terrible. I hate it. But what I see as being hypocrites are the members of the mainstream media who didn’t mention that in Chicago, over the same weekend, fifty-nine people were shot and seven them were killed. I wouldn’t trust the media in an outhouse with a muzzle on, and I wouldn’t believe what they said if they had their hands on a stack of Bibles.

.

I was going down Little Colley the other day and ran upon a certain fellow who I thought was a church member. Apparently, he’s not, because he was wearing a short-sleeve shirt and was growing a mustache. It sure didn’t take him long after he got out the church doors to start meanness. People do have eyes.

.

I wonder how much money Hillary Clinton got for selling our uranium to the Russians. She should have known the Russians would rat her out. Hmmm. Rats, scabs … oh, that’s the same thing.

.

I would love to know if the man who lives next to the twin bridge is married or not. If not, I would love to get to know him.

.

I visited Jenkins a few days ago for the first time in a long time. After reading some comments about Jenkins in Speak Your Piece, it does look like a junkyard at that spot the caller was speaking about. The yards do need to be cleaned up in Jenkins and some of them need to be condemned. The city should impose its ordinances on the slumlords. One house has grass up to the roof. It looks like a little forest in there. Come on, Jenkins City Council and Mayor Depriest, straighten the city up at least.

.

I saw where those minischool buses in New York have two switches in order to turn the buses on. You have to get in the bus, turn one switch on and then walk to the back of the bus and turn on another switch. The driver then has to come back to the front and start the bus. I have never heard of that, but I do know there are problems with kids suffocating in the hot weather. I think this is a good idea.

.

Happy 25th birthday, Ryan Adams. Love you to the moon and back. Best wishes and love from Thornton.

.

To Frankenstein and Blondie: You have until Friday to get the girl back in the custody of the grandfather or I will call social services to find out why you have custody of a child you are not supposed to have.

.

Thank you to The Mountain Eagle for all that you do, especially with Speak Your Piece. I have one question for the Jenkins mayor and the six city council members: Do we have a police force in Jenkins? I have called in a complaint before and never saw the police show up. Just remember, there is always an election coming up soon. If things don’t change in Jenkins we can always get a new mayor and a new city council. Do your jobs, folks, especially the police force.

I saw where Mike Pence visited Clay County, but he didn’t come to Letcher County, because he didn’t want to see hades. This place is actually worse than hades.

.

I don’t know who called in about the used car dealership in Jenkins or the person who owns the cars, but that caller must be nosy and mean. He or she must not have a life if they have to sit and worry about what other people are doing. It’s sad. Thank you.

.

These politicians on both sides are just ratcheting this rhetoric up higher and higher. I just hope and pray we don’t end up experiencing something like what happened in Dallas in 1963. I wouldn’t be shocked if something like that did happen again, but I hope and pray it doesn’t come to that. Thank you.

.

The county judge and sheriff should come to Pert Creek and see this mess, especially around the areas where people store their garbage until the truck runs. It’s coming out in the road. Something needs to be done about this.

.

I was just watching the TV and saw where the vice president was telling all of these druggies that there’s help out there for them, yet in our schools little children are being bullied by bigger children. They never tell them there is help. There is something wrong with this picture. Children who happen to be smaller and weaker are being bullied and there is no help for them. Let’s get it together and take care of our little children.

.

This is the blue boy. Yes, I got caught twice in Virginia for drunk driving. They were too easy on me over there. I want all you judges to know that you shouldn’t go easy on a drunk driver, especially when it’s his or her first charge. Put them on probation for at least a year. I deserved every bit of my punishment and I was wrong. So please, don’t drink and drive.

.

Dear Speak Your Piece: I hate to sound insensitive, but when we have a car wreck like the one we just had near Letcher County Central High School, it looks like the police or whoever the proper people are would clean up the glass and the pieces of car that are left scattered everywhere. It looks like they could at least do that.

.

I would just like the people of Letcher County know that my husband was drawing Social Security disability pay, but he wasn’t drawing enough to get by on so he started working some as a mechanic. They gave him three years in prison and ordered him to pay back $62,000 they had let him draw. There’s a few more who are drawing SSI and they need to be investigated, too. We were just trying to get by. Thank you.

.

I’m calling in reference to the King Features crossword puzzle that’s in the paper each week. I fill these things out in hopes I can get all the answers correctly, but then when I go to look for the answers they are not published. I don’t know how many times this has happened, but I would like to find out if there’s a problem. If this is going to continue I am going to quit fooling with it. I get a little bit of pleasure in reading the paper and the crossword puzzle is a little extra adventure for me.

.

Why haven’t they executed the murderers of Dr. Acker’s daughter? This has dragged on and on. What’s wrong with our governor? Why hasn’t he put this trash to death already? Dr. Acker was a respectable person and his daughter harmed no one. These are horrible people the taxpayers have been supporting all of these years. Stop putting the burden on the taxpayers and execute these murderers.

.

Some of these women go around looking like slobs. They let themselves go, their hair is so gray they look like they are 90, and they don’t have a speck of makeup on. I don’t know how they get or even keep a man as skankylooking as they are.

.

Fraud is a felony. Whenever you change someone’s name on a document that is a felony. Felonies are criminal cases and they get tried.

.

I sure wish the people who live on the hill by my house would slow down when they drive by in their cars. I have grandchildren riding bicycles up and down by my house and I’m afraid one of them will get run over. There is no way they could stop their car if they came upon a child in the road on a bicycle. They know they are driving too fast, and I sure would appreciate it if they would slow down on this hill at 287 Whitco Loop. It is pitiful how fast they drive up and down this hill.

.

This goes out to the piece of trash that beat my granddaughter the other day and then ran on a four-wheeler toward Sergent: I am going to get you, boy. I’ll tell you something, man; you messed with the wrong people this time. You know who you are and you know who I am. You better run, jack, because I’m hunting for you. I won’t quit until I find you.

.

Whoever heard of a pharmacy closing for lunch? I’ve never seen that before.

.

To a certain gentleman: Sir, I don’t know your name, but I can tell you one thing. I came by the walking track about 3 or 3:30 p.m., on Friday and you were parked down by the bathrooms in your car facing the river. It doesn’t take a genius to know what that certain girl who was with you was doing. If you have a wife you need to go and get tested, because you caught something from that certain little gal that only God could cure. You need to be honest and tell your wife, because your few minutes of fun for the twenty-five dollars you paid have brought you something that doctors can’t cure. It’s going to cost you your life.

.

I would like to see the Whitesburg Police Department become involved in doing something about this prostitution that is going on here, especially at the walking track, the parking lot at the Walmart shopping center, and in the parking lots at some of the gas stations. It’s the same old girls who are doing prostitution.

.

The mainstream media came to my house today to interview a mule they believe had something to do with the Epstein man getting killed in prison. I know he didn’t have anything to do with it, because I’ve had the mule for ten or twelve years and he’s a stubborn as he can be. They went to him with their apples and their carrots and tried to bribe him, but he stayed stubborn and never spoke a word. I’ll let you know if they try to interview him again.

.

This is addressed to Mc- Donald’s in Whitesburg: I think it’s a dirty shame to go there and order 12 double cheeseburgers, pay for them, and then get home to find out they gave you 12 singles instead. And seven of those did not have any meat on them — just a pickle and a piece of cheese. ‘Hangry.’
