Thank you, Mr. President, for taking the prison funding away from Letcher County. Everyone knows we don’t need two- to three-hundred well-paying jobs here; we just love welfare and food stamps anyway. Everyone needs to sign up on welfare and then rush out and vote Republican again and see what else Trump and Mitch can take from us if Trump is re-elected. Thank you, Republicans.

.

I just want to say that we have a poor water company over here in Letcher County. They had about four to five breaks up on Airport Mountain, Highway 1410, over the weekend and the water was off all day long. Then you ask them to come and let the air out of the lines and they won’t do it even though it knocks the faucets off. They should have seen to that the water lines were buried properly so they wouldn’t get busted.

.

I see where Mike Bloomberg has promised to put the coal industry out of business by 2030. He might want to call CSX, Norfolk Southern, Burlington Northern and Santa Fe, and Union Pacific railroads and tell them they’re going to have to cut back and park two- or three-thousand of those locomotives and sidetrack about two-hundred thousand of those railroad cars they’ve been using. He also should call Komatsu, Caterpillar, Joy, Volvo and five hundred other companies that build heavy equipment and tell them to be cutting back on their stuff. He’ll also have to call Bridgestone, Firestone, B.F. Goodrich, and Goodyear tire companies and tell them they won’t be making any more tires for heavy equipment. And then he’ll have to call Kenworth, Peterbilt, International, Volvo and Mack trucks and tell them the same type of thing.

.

I would like to leave a message to the Letcher County Health Department. They are always getting onto people about straight pipes running into creeks and rivers, but appear to be ignoring a pipe and concrete tank right on the North Fork of the Kentucky River in downtown Whitesburg, in seeing distance from the health department itself. It’s sticking out from under the dirt and vines. A white pipe is running right down into it.

.

Is anybody out there really surprised that Donald Trump is taking all the money for our federal prison and using it elsewhere? Did you Trump voters really believe he really gave one hoot about the people of Letcher County and eastern Kentucky when you voted for him? And did you really believe Mitch McConnell cared one thing about you or Letcher County when you voted for him?

.

It’s a shame that a business owner has workers who talk about her like a dog when she’s not in there. It embarrasses me to hear the way they talk about her. She is a good woman, but her workers are talking about her like a dog. All of the customers hear it, and it’s a shame.

.

Joe Biden said the DACA recipients are more American than most Americans. Well, I might agree with him if he’s comparing them to the people we have in Congress.

.

There seems to be more people speaking up for their right to bear AR-15’s than speaking up for their rights for freedom these days and their rights to vote for whom they choose to sit in the White House or even the Senate. Bob Mueller did not clear Trump; he did say that he obstructed justice. Trump is not exonerated nor is he an innocent man, but has from day one has fought tooth and nail to cover up his crimes and transgressions. Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and food stamps are going to be gone and the people who have family receiving these benefits will be just like the coal miners who were trapped by the coal companies years ago — they will be put to work just like the miners working and getting what they could from the company store, or put to sleep if they are too old or too sick to work. Say goodbye to the America that our ancestors fought for. To this day Mitch McConnell has done nothing at all to safeguard our elections; gee I wonder why? Even the Republicans said the House members made their case. I wonder what Trump knows on these guys to hold their loyalty. The swamp is now expanded into a septic system, offensive to all humanity. Will you take in your elderly when Social Security and Medicare ends? Thank a Republican for that.

.

The Chinese stole Social Security information on 145 million Americans. I wish we had a president who protected us from such attacks.

.

On Saturdays on WMMT on ‘Smoking Saturday’ the ‘Duke of Hazard’ has ‘Daisy Duke,’ but he won’t let her speak. I don’t know how he keeps her so quiet.

.

If there is an excuse for all of the water outages we continually have in this county I would like to hear it. Most of our water lines are fairly new but still keep breaking and leaking. How was this permitted to happen?

.

I don’t think Joe Biden is going to be Donald Trump’s opponent. Does that mean Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, and Gerald Nadler are going to be impeached for what they did?

.

I have a neighbor who has rats bigger than her dogs. They just kept running in my yard until I had to start using One Bite and traps to catch them with. I can’t keep them out of my yard, but I am trying. Most of her yard is just pure garbage her dogs have torn up. If she would get her sorry behind and clean a little of it up every day it would finally get gone.

.

To a certain person: You said we would always be friends, but you lied. I wonder what else you lied about. You are a liar. I am not your friend, you are not my friend, and we are not friends. But you lied.

.

If you don’t like your elected officials in Washington getting super rich on the job then call your state legislators and tell them to get with the Convention of States and give the states back the power the constitution gave them.

.

‘Second Amendment Sanctuary’ counties and cities are places where drug dealers and people high on meth can carry their pistols and guns while constitutionally protected. They have a constitutional right to have guns to shoot people and kill people with. Who would want to take away their constitution rights? Mexicans. The Mexicans want the wall built to keep the U.S. guns out of Mexico.

.

To Speak Your Piece: Hello friends and neighbors. Looks like the Democrats in Washington have blown another pile of our tax dollars. Looks like they would just give Trump a big hug and thank him for his perfect act as our president. I have my TV, popcorn and Diet Coke ready for the next round. During Trump’s speech last week I noticed Nancy P. wanted to hug him several times and when it ended she mistakenly thought she was tearing up her DUI subpoena. Well she was wrong again. Hope them the best for Trump’s four more years.

.

I could not get out of my driveway when the water was up — it had washed away half of the driveway. Tried to get to speak to the county judge and highway department person, but they were always gone. But just remember that people living in hollows with one or two houses can vote you out, and the way people are talking you will be out of the courthouse come election. We want someone who will help everyone when some of us need it and we don’t have enough money to buy gravel. Thank you.

.

If Mitch McConnell really wanted the federal prison to be built at Roxana, wouldn’t it have already been under construction?

.

Concerning the prison at Roxana, I wish the group of people who have worked for it had spent one-tenth of that time just trying to get 10 new jobs in Letcher County. Here they have spent 20 years trying to get a prison they know will not be built at Roxana, Kentucky.

.

I would like to wish my wife, Evelyn Morton, a very special anniversary. She is a great person and I love spending time with her. She is my one true and only friend I can always depend on. I put the Good Lord first, but my wife is second. I do love my wife dearly. From her husband, Charlie. Happy anniversary. I love you.

.

The Bible says any man who upholds the Ten Commandments has a chance to go and be with God. One of those commandments is thou shalt not lie. I know a gentleman who lies. This fellow is in his thirties and lied to get his check. The funny thing to me is his back problems don’t slow him down from riding his side-by-side into the mountains. He may be on the top right now, but he may not be after some people talk to the Social Security board. And pictures are going to tell the tale.

.

I just read in The Mountain Eagle where Neon is going to fine people for having dogs that poop in someone else’s yard. I think the mayor and council need to find something better to do with their time.

.

If you’re the S.O.B. who ran over my cat you are a gutless chicken. You will never let me know your name.

.

What Bernie Sanders is proposing is the lie that Joseph Stalin used to deceive the people of Russia and put most of them on starvation.

.

To the person who called in to Speak Your Piece and said they would harm the boy if he didn’t go to prison: Little do you know that boy has a big family and there are lawyers in that family. If one hair on his head is harmed you will be in jail. You better shut your comments up.

.

To all the people out there who are talking this trash about our wonderful president: I’ve heard them say oh he’s just a rich star and a lying politician. Well have you checked on the Democrats who are also rich? I’ve never heard of any of them being a poor person running for a big seat in Washington. If they are poor then, just give them a term and they become very rich — owning banks, million dollar homes, and jets for transportation.

.

To the person who commented on all the trips and golf time taken by Trump: How did you check this to be factual?

.

To all these people out there who believe in Groundhog Day: Pull out your calendar and count how many weeks after Groundhog Day it is until spring. I count six weeks. God bless the little groundhog.

.

If you still have your Trump flag flying after all the times he has tried to stop the federal prison from being built here you are a traitor to Letcher County, plain and simple.

.

When it comes to your family don’t worry, I don’t want anything to do with the scum and lowlife. I sure don’t want to touch anything as dirty as you are. What is it to you to see if I went to the gun show? Have a nice day, baby. Sounds like somebody could be jealous of little old me. You will never get lucky again with me or anyone else. No one wants you. You are pathetic and ugly. Bye-bye, Bam Bam.

.

How dare our whoremonger president and his X-rated wife to fly down to Daytona Beach on the taxpayers’ dime and cheapen our Christian religion even more by saying the words ‘what matters most is God, family and country.’ Donald Trump could care less about God, his family or his country. If he’s a Christian I am the pope.

.

Thank you, Mr. President. Today is Presidents Day and you have done a good job with America. I don’t know what would have happened if the honorable Jefferson Davis had been in there, but you’re doing a fine job, President Trump. I was hoping you would get the swamp drained during this term, but I see there are few Democrats still manning the pumps and they’re not wanted it pumped much. You’ll get it straightened out, Mr. President. God bless America.
