Who is the guy on the motorcycle who runs up and down the road all day while his wife works as a nurse? Isn’t he ashamed to be out running the roads while his wife is working?

If you work at a place that gives you the opportunity to sign up for the helicopter service insurance you better do it. I live close to the heliport at the ARH hospital, and every time they come in they sit for at least 30 minutes or more with the rotors going and the meter running. So they are just overcharging the insurance companies so they can overcharge you. Wake up, America.

.

There’s a lot of talk in the news about the LGBT movement. I’m okay with that — do your thing. But why is there not a genderneutral pronoun? There’s he, there’s she, there’s we, but there is not a genderneutral pronoun. Let’s work on that.

.

I saw in The Mountain Eagle where the Letcher Fire and Rescue board found many bills unpaid. We should have known that, given the new vehicle they bought for the old chief to run around in.

.

I would like to thank Randy Blair for having a great picnic up at his place. He is a good fellow. The picnic was so good.

Hey, Trump-lover, it’s too bad for people like you that not a shred of evidence has turned up to prove any of the right-wing propaganda concerning the baseless accusations against either of the Clintons. Know what Bill Clinton didn’t do? He didn’t closet himself alone in the Oval Office with Russian agents and not one single American witness. Know what Hillary Clinton didn’t do? She didn’t override eight Congressional agencies to approve the sale of uranium, and couldn’t have if she’d wanted. All of these fake ‘scandals’ were scripted by the professional liars at places like Breitbart and InfoWars, both of which I’m sure you’re aware of since you parrot their scripts almost verbatim. Do you think I’m a ‘Hillary-lover’ because I’m sick of listening to people like you lie through your teeth? Not really, although by any objective standard she was by far the most qualified presidential candidate we’ve had in years.

.

Happy birthday, Sweetie. I love you.

.

Before they get past the border they are complaining about this bad country.

.

I just saw where they said more people were shot in Chicago with seven killed over the weekend. The mayor of Chicago, the government of Illinois, and the federal government don’t care about those people. You can’t have this many killings and ignore it this long and say you care about it. The mainstream media needs a front seat in hell for not reporting this every single day until something is done. I would have the National Guard on every single corner up there if it takes that to stop it.

.

I would like to comment about the people holding signs up in Whitesburg about sexual predators: I think we need to do more about our sexual predator problem, because we have sexual predators going right into places where there are a lot of children. They need to be monitored more. If this was my child and I was in the court system would I want this to happen to my child? Absolutely not.

.

There’s a graveyard behind the Eolia Grade School. When we were young children, in the Fifties and Sixties, they called it a racist name. Has anybody checked to see who is buried there and how many graves are actually there? And have they checked up in Bowman Hollow at that graveyard to see who the people are who were buried during the Civil War and before?

.

When you read this you will know who I am and who I am talking about. The last time I was at your house your husband was so rude to me that I will never be back there again. I wish I hadn’t come back up there to try to be friends with you all again. You owe me about $450, and your brother has owed me about $550 forever. I loaned you $350 to fix your airconditioner, and then you got another $100. I want my money.

.

To all you Republican schoolteachers in Letcher County: Surely you are not going to vote for Griswold Bevin again after he tried to take away your guaranteed retirement. Andy Beshear is offering to give you a $2,000 raise if you will vote for him. Surely you can do this. Thank you.

.

What kind of people are you to jump onto the president for being concerned about where the hurricane was going and thinking it was going to hit Alabama? Nobody knew where that thing was going. And the mass murders that are going on are horrible, but there have been over 300 homicides in Chicago, not counting the ones who were wounded. Heck, 75 have been killed down here in Charlotte. You people lay off the president for a while. He is concerned about America. Have you seen any other president do any better than what this man is doing? No, you have not. God bless America, God bless our president, and screw you &@*% people.

.

We’ve been having a problem down here at Black Bottom with dogs. We called for the dog warden at the county garage and they hung the phone up on us. They told me if it was bothering my life to go ahead and take care of them, and that’s just what I did. I think they should get some friendlier people to answer the telephone.

.

I’m sick and tired of watching the Letcher County Government Channel. All they have been showing lately is the stupid rodeo, over and over and over. Why don’t you people get a life? The rodeo is in the past. Put something new on. Put on something about our parks or about Little Shepherd Trail. Put on something good or take that channel off.

.

The word racist is very much in the news today. If two people of different races can’t agree on something that word comes out. God created all the races on the sixth day. He looked at what He had made and it was very good. In the next creation time He made Adam, whose name means bloody complexion, which means showing blood in the face. Eve, his wife, is the mother of all living, because she would be the mother through which Jesus would come, umbilical cord to umbilical cord, to Mary. If you’re not with Jesus you will not live eternally. The Lake of Fire at the end of the white throne judgment is the second death. Read Revelations 10:14 and Hebrews 12:29.

.

I was just wondering — how come it takes a woman longer to go through the ATM line than it does a man?

.

Ladies, I commend my wife. She’s a woman and she said politics aren’t for women. So please keep the women out of the White House.

.

This is for the Scotia Employees Association: Your union needs a new president. You need to vote out the present one, because he’s meek and mild and doesn’t care about you all.

.

I would like to see Clemson join the Southeastern Conference. That would make a super conference. Can you imagine the stadium it would take to hold the people at Clemson if they were playing teams like Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Florida, LSU, Kentucky, Vanderbilt and Texas A&M? I believe they would double their money if they got out of the conference they’re in now and joined the SEC. Just wanted to throw that out there. Clemson would be a powerhouse in the SEC.

.

Thanks, Mr. Rodney Gilley, for mowing Granny’s yard and garden. We don’t own the property anymore and the man who does own it is supposed to keep it up. We appreciate everything you have done. Thank you so much.

.

Thank God Republicans now have three other candidates running for president. Yes, their politics may be almost as despicable, but at least they’re adults, and that would be an extremely positive change.

.

We lost Gurnie Maggard this weekend, and it’s going to be a hard blow for the Little Colley community. I believe everybody around there has shopped or traded with Gurnie or Charlie Maggard over the last hundred years. May God’s prayers be with Gurnie and his family. The Colley community is behind you. Thank you, Anna Lee, for all the things you have done for our community.

.

I cannot believe we have one person in Letcher County requesting our fiscal court close the roadway on Kingdom Come Creek. There are some 20,000 residents in Letcher County. The one person wants the court to close that road. He says it’s to prevent theft of his personal property on Kingdom Come. Well, that’s a joke. You need to really know the reason why he wants it close, but I’ll not go in to that. I reside in a district that is different than the district where the Kingdom Come Road is. A friend of mine and I walked door-to-door during the last election for two members of the fiscal court. Neither of them has Kingdom Come in their district, but if they vote to close that road we will work to get them defeated in the next election.

.

To Speak Your Piece: Hello friends and neighbors. Well, looks like the 2020 election is going to be a crazy year. I’m sure glad I changed over to a Republican. I’m very ashamed of the way the Democrats are acting now. In my 78 years on Earth I have never seen a group of so-called grownups act as they do. I know Trump has his faults, but my God, he at least is trying and doing his best to improve this country. I realize most of you don’t really understand that, with the words you say about Mr. Trump. Those idiots running against him have somehow sent electric waves through the TV that have got hung in a brain cell. Wake up before it destroys you. As a nation, we all need to start being more sociable towards each together and quit having these uprisings as they have in the bigger cities, jumping up and down on top of police cars. Looks like a bunch of apes at the zoo. Anyhow, we are all praying that you demonstrators will be healed. Thank you.

.

I might have a little bit of respect for Donald Trump if he could learn to say these simple words, ‘Oops! I made a mistake; sorry about that!’ How many more months or days until we American voters have the opportunity and responsibility to restore integrity and respect into our leadership in Washington?

.

I saw in last week’s paper about an old woman who believes strangers on the Internet are in love with her. I think I know who that person is. She told me over a year ago about having a boyfriend she met online. She was very excited and dressed like a teenager. She should know that a young man from another country is a scammer. She is a sad case. It is no telling how long she has been talking to people on line believing they have good intentions. She has been sending them money.

.

The old saying is why marry the cow when you can get the milk for free. If I were this certain young lady dating this certain fellow and he wouldn’t commit to saying we were dating, I believe I would worry about giving the milk up pretty quick. I’d be finding me a new boyfriend.
