Listen Letcher County, I am a Republican, but I will change my party as soon as possible. These nuts believe Donald Trump was sent by God; so did Jim Jones’s people. You have the heart of a serpent. Since I have been on Facebook I have seen the ignorance come out. Most everyone of you Republicans wanting any assistance to the poor to be cut out are the very ones who depended on food stamps for years. I give up on some of you. There are some still with sense. Not every Democrat wants abortions. I know one Republican running his mouth about abortions, when I know for a fact that his sister had three of them. There are some ignorant people in both parties.

Senator Mitch McConnell, who is the Senate Majority Leader, is the key man to lobby and protect your Second Amendment rights. The Democrats are scared of this man and are trying their best to have him recuse from the coming Senate trial regarding the sham impeachment of President Trump. The Democrats have accused Trump for the exact crimes their party members have executed deceiving the public. Joseph Goebbels, who was Hitler’s right hand man, said if you tell a big enough lie and keep repeating it, people will eventually believe it.

I read in the December 11 issue of The Mountain Eagle that four hundred Letcher County residents, and three million people nationwide, will lose their SNAP benefits to feed their families because of the actions of President Trump. Don’t cry about it, because seventy-three percent of the county voted for him. Remember elections have consequences and elections matter.

.

I’d like to wish a bunch of people a merry Christmas and a happy New Year, starting with Karen Miles and family, Riley Jr., Glenn Miles, all the Fieldses including Bobby Conn and his, Waylon Fields and theirs, the Days, Boggses, Meades, Sandlins, Jean and hers, Liddy Sandlin, Beaver Dam Ann Adams family, Jeremy Joshua, Honeycutts, Kevin Michael, their sisters as well, Roberts Danny Helen, Eddie Jack, Marcia John Banks, Barbara his wife, Angie Roberts, Teresa, Ball Mountain, Robert Sword and Kathy, Erma McIntosh, Doris and Melvin Fields, Judy Ephlene, Kenny Harvey Sue Dwight, Brashears, Sam Stephanie Patty Gary Larry, Kingdom Come, the Cooks Linefork, Hagar Trent and Margaret. That’s all, folks. Thank you, Mr. Stanley Pack.

Dear Speak Your Piece: The plumbers of this county are pricing their work way too high. They prey on the poor and charge them way too much money. Most of the time they lie and don’t even show up for work. Kids in high school, if Letcher County Central and Jenkins high schools don’t have plumbing programs, leave those schools and go to where there is a plumbing program. It will be worth it if you can come back here and charge twenty-five dollars an hour. That would be five dollars less than most plumbers charge around here. You would do really well.

.

Thank you, Mr. President. Thank you for getting that gold mine in Alaska opened up, even if it did destroy an environmentally protected watershed in the area. Don’t worry about us miners here in eastern Kentucky who have not worked in more than two years. Don’t worry about helping miners here; we’ll vote for you whether you help us or not even if coal mining is in worse shape now than when you took office. For being called the ‘Chosen One’ you sure do lie a lot. Thank you again, Mr. President.

You Republicans and Democrats both are killing me in Speak Your Piece and just about everywhere else I look. You’re all a bunch of phonies. If Donald Trump was a Democrat, you Republicans would be going wild over the crazy and crooked things he is doing and would be calling for his impeachment while you Democrats would be singing his praises. If Hillary Clinton was a Republican, the Republicans who were yelling ‘lock her up’ would be crazy for her and it would be the Democrats screaming ‘lock her up.’ It’s not policy you people — Republican or Democrat — care about; it’s the personalities. And if you live here in Letcher County and you think the Republicans or Democrats are on your side, or are good plain folk like you, then you are too stupid to even vote. Many of you on both sides act like cult members.

Of all the tribes listed in the Bible from the Middle East, could someone tell me where the Palestinians are ever mentioned?

.

Our new governor really deserves to be treated the way he treated our last governor, and I sure hope they do that to him.

.

God bless Mr. Trump and his family. The Democrat Party is looking more stupid every day. Build the wall. Let Mr. Trump run this nation.

To a certain person: If you mess in any way with my uncle’s acetylene tank you are going to be held responsible for it. If it is missing the law will be in your garage or in your house with a warrant. You have ways of messing with other people’s property when they are asleep or away from home.

I am so angry the main public library in Whitesburg was closed for the whole day on Wednesday, December 11. The announcement on Facebook said it would open at 11 a.m. The roads at 11 a.m. were clear and it was 37 degrees. Where on the planet do the librarians live that disables them from reporting for work on a clear day? My taxes support the library, and I do not appreciate the waste of tax money for this ridiculous decision. By the way, the Perry County Public Library was open at 11. Thank you very much. I am still angry. Bye.

.

What’s on my mind is people showing their true colors when they are going out of office. You tell me how it is right that a man or woman can be sentenced to life or other long sentences for serious crimes and Mr. Bevin intervenes and turns them loose. This is not fair. This is what’s wrong with this country. If the murder victim or sex abuse victim was in your family would you want these people turned loose? No you would not.

.

Hey, Michael Bloomberg. So you want to be president? Well, we don’t need anyone telling us what we can eat or drink or what else we can do like you did when you were the mayor of New York City. This is America, Mr. Bloomberg. You are a Yankee and you will never be president no matter how much money you have. To heck with you, Mr. Bloomberg, and to heck with New York too as far as I’m concerned.

.

Pretty or handsome, I would like to meet you anywhere anytime.

Matthew Chapter 25 is about profitable and unprofitable servants. Verse 3 starts with the five virgins who didn’t take enough oil for their lamps, which was really a lack of knowledge. People who will be meeting with Jesus will know what is going on and will be ready. Jesus will know who has been working during the crucial time before His return. Jesus didn’t know the five virgins. In Verse 14, it is not about money; it is about two who worked and one who didn’t work. Read Revelations 22:12, which says everyone will be rewarded according to their work.

.

There ought to be a law against people going out and doing things at this time of the year just to get people to send them money so they can go out and have a big time. There is a con artist in this county acting like they are sick.

.

I regret voting for President Trump because I don’t agree with putting children in cages like they are animals. That is a no-no. That is the work of Satan. Our country has gone to crap over the past couple of years.

.

I have been watching videos of cops’ encounters with citizens and am amazed at how many bad cops are standing behind badges, wearing guns and breaking the laws and abusing their power. I myself will from now on record any contact that I have with law enforcement — local, county, state or federal — and will hold them accountable for their conduct and actions.

In studying state laws I have learned that Kentucky is a ‘no ID’ state, which means that you must have been suspected of a crime with evidence established before being detained or questioned or asked for your identification. Only the driver of a vehicle must present driver’s license, registration, and proof of insurance if stopped for a traffic violation. Passengers do not have to give ID or personal information. Suspicion is not a crime nor is speculation. Not all police are bad and not all willfully and intentionally violate our constitutional rights, but many do. If we all start recording police actions and take our evidence to the courts that will be a start to begin establishing order in our community. I will also record politicians, public officials, and anyone else that I wish who are in public view. Our First Amendment right says we can video, record, or take pictures of anyone or anything that is in public and seen from any public access. Lookout folks.

I have never seen so many sick people in my life, many of them who are dying. I am a natural health consultant. I have my B.A. in health. I do research and give out information every day and collect it. Let me tell you what will save your life: Eat a good breakfast — organic cereal, eggs, turkey, and oatmeal. Eat good meat every day and stay off sodas, fast and processed foods, and cook at home. I hope this helps. So many are sick and I am really worried about it.

.

This is concerning Michael Bloomberg who is running for president : Someone may want to tell him to be careful what you wish for because you may get it. Thank you.

.

I think it’s a shame that 50-, 60- and 70-year-old people are being locked up for doing dope while everybody hollers that it’s the younger generation. No, it’s not the younger generation.

.

I just want to complain about Whitesburg Middle School’s Family Resource Center. It is never open regular hours. My family had a difficult time getting our Thanksgiving food and we are having a difficult time getting our Christmas presents because we don’t have a ride in the mornings and can only get there in the afternoons after it is closed. My kids will not have a Christmas because we can’t get there before noon. Thank you.

.

Mr. President, if you have to flush your toilet 10 to 15 times each time you go, it’s no wonder you have so much time to tweet.

.

We read about all these indictments but we hardly ever see how the cases are disposed. I wish The Mountain Eagle about once a month would carry news that tells the court proceedings and what happens to these people who were indicted. I think that would make the paper more interesting and more people would buy it. Thank you.

.

Watching this impeachment fiasco on television about four or five hours a day made me think back to my first year in grade school.

.

I recently read a comment in Speak Your Piece regarding Trump and his financial wizardry. You are so right about his ability to blow through money. At the rate he is going the USA will be bankrupt like all of his other ventures in business. I still remember his Trump Foundation charity that got shut down because the money wasn’t going to anyone but himself. He did pay one of his son’s Cub Scout dues of seven dollars out of it plus many other items that were not a legitimate expenditure for a charity. Have we forgotten his Trump University scam that was shut down because it was a fraud? He is such a stable genius he still hasn’t figured out to stay out of crime. Have we forgotten all of the president’s men who have gone to prison or are about to go to prison because of him?

.

There has to be some kind of mind control or secret sauce being used on people to make them believe the lies of President Donald John Trump. I challenge you to research how much taxpayer money the dotard has spent on trips to his golf resorts; it far exceeds any reality of what you think he is worth. The truth is the dotard hasn’t hidden his crimes; he tells about them out loud and some are blind and deaf to what he says. Mitch and Trump are out for themselves and that’s a fact; the poor and middle class are not anything to them. Now they are cutting food stamps; next Social Security and Medicare. And as for Mexicans, do some research on Trump’s hiring of employees. He has hired illegals for years and gotten by with it. They came out with it after the cruelty he showed towards their race.

. Thank you, Mr. President, for honoring America. You have not dishonored the White House and you have not dishonored America. You stood up for America. You have helped bless America. You have kept these other countries from cheating America. Your opponents are jealous of you, Mr. President. You have a beautiful family and that’s another thing a lot of people are jealous of, Mr. President.

.

Democrats from coast to coast, do the honorable thing and resign, each and every one of you from dog-catcher to congressman. You are done. Stick a fork in your right ear and see. You are done.

.

Here’s betting that Matt Bevin, our ex-Republican governor who won the majority of votes in Democrat heavy Letcher County, couldn’t today find five Letcher County voters who would admit to voting for him now that he has let hundreds of murderers and child rapists out of jail. Hey there, Bevin voters in Letcher County, please explain to us just why it was you voted for this creep in the first place.

.

This is the old cat killer to all of you who thought I was gone: Ha ha. In February I am going to open kill thy neighbor’s cat season. That’s about the time they get pregnant, and if we kill them then we won’t have so many kittens running around here. Have a great big ol’ meow day.

.

To the people of Letcher County: I need your help. I am a senior citizen with severe heart problems and severe back problems. I can’t make it without my son and a four-wheel drive vehicle to get to my house over a county road that is so bad he barely can make it to me to pick me up to take me to the doctor. I guess the joke is on me, because I voted for the present county judge and got about 25 to 30 members of my family to also vote for him. It wouldn’t take two hours to fix my road. I need some public support.

.

People keep saying that God fights for Israel and the Jewish people. Well, the Jewish religion doesn’t recognize that Jesus is the Son of God. So why would God fight for a nation of people who don’t believe Jesus was His son?

.

I keep hearing these preachers on TV quoting the Bible talking about death, hell and the grave. Can somebody tell me where that scripture is? I can’t find it in my King James. Thank you.

.

Howdy folks. I’d just like to wish everyone in Letcher County a very happy holiday. No matter what your religion happens to be, or maybe you have no specific religion, this time of year can remind us to be especially friendly and kind to our neighbors. People have various beliefs, customs and political affiliations. There are Republicans, Democrats, independents and those who don’t care about political issues. Try to keep in mind this holiday season that regardless of our differences we are all trying to live life the best we know how. When you’re out and about try smiling and saying hello to the folks you meet. Call or visit someone who’s lonely or less fortunate. Hold a door open for an older or infirm person — or just anyone. Invite someone you haven’t seen lately over to share a meal or cup of coffee. Visit someone who’s incarcerated. Be less critical of other people. My guess is that doing these things will make this holiday season happier for all residents of Letcher County. Thank you and best wishes to everyone.
