Seems suspicious to me that Covid-19 is coming just as our president is trying so hard to destroy our health insurance.

.

Me and my wife just want to thank The Mountain Eagle for getting us through another winter. I’m sure glad spring is near so we can plant flowers and everything and have a good summer on the lake. Thank you.

(Thank you for buying and reading the paper!)

.

What right do I have to go to a foreign country and display my country’s colors and expect them to change their language and culture because they offend me? Just a thought.

.

I was coming out of Ohio the other day and stopped by Lexington to get something to eat. I ran upon a Tennessee Vols bus, which had Cat hair flying out of it. I’ll tell you, they skinned the Cats. They absolutely busted their hind-ends. Go Tennessee.

.

To a very attractive young lady who works at a certain shop in Isom: I haven’t seen you there in a while, but I sure do miss being able to look at you. I used to come in and buy a sandwich just to see you.

.

Come on, Uncle Joe. Trump is going to chew you up and spit you out. I can’t wait. Come on, boy, come on.

.

I was just wondering why a certain hospital keeps an employee there after said employee has multiple brushes with the law. This hospital claims to always want a professional appearance inside and outside the hospital and have fired other employees for much less. I wonder how they explain this?

.

To anyone who believes in prayer: We all need to pray and ask the Lord to lead us on how we should vote. Don’t think Democrat or Republican. Ask the Lord to show us which candidate wants America to do its best and not worry about all the money they can get out of the deal.

I think a certain yellow four-wheeler needs to quit coming around and dealing his dope. We see you, and the sheriff is going to see you in a day or two.

Attention shoppers: Make double sure you check your receipt after you get home and check it twice. All isn’t priced the same between the time you take it off the shelf and get to the checkout. Then you get told you are wrong. Seven to eight dollars a week in overcharges makes a difference. This is the second straight time this has happened. We are proud people and we don’t need any grief from a box boy. They know who this is, but at this point I don’t give a darn. Thank you.

.

Yes, that gas station has about three or four gay women hanging out there.

.

President Trump has told lie number 17,001. He is now blaming Obama for all the problems with coronavirus. The virus was not even bothering anybody when Obama was in office. This just goes to show you that President Trump is either crazy or has dementia or maybe both.

.

I watched 57 Mountain News and saw where some religious freedom bunch had the Letcher County School System remove religious talk from the walls and all of that. They say they have the right to come in and do that, but what about our rights? Have we not got the right to be able to put what we think up on the wall? Atheists can believe the way they want to believe, but whenever they get ready to pass from this life they will wish they hadn’t done what they’ve done. They should build schools for atheists and build schools for religious people. This is getting out of hand.

.

I want all the students and faculty at Letcher County Central High School to make sure they don’t take any money with them to school, because it has “In God We Trust” written on it. I guess the superintendent will have to have that painted over before you can get into the school. What a ridiculous school system we have and what a dumb decision by our school superintendent. She should have at least stood up and let the people know what was going on before she decided to paint over the writing on the wall. Just ridiculous. This school system is in the worst shape I’ve ever seen it.

.

The Supreme Court has long held that the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment forbids school-sponsored prayer or religious indoctrination. I’ll pass along some great advice from the incredible men and women of the Republican Party: ‘If you don’t like the laws of this country, leave.’

.

To a person at Neon on E Potter Road: You really thought you had it set up back in November, didn’t you? Now who is getting the money and who isn’t? And who is that you are living with?

.

To the people on Marshall’s Branch who were being talked about for the garbage around their home: Don’t you people read the paper? Don’t you have any self-respect whatsoever? Pick that garbage up. You are destroying your neighbors’ property values. We don’t like it. If you don’t straighten up we are going to quit liking you. We’ve tried to be nice to you people. Pucker up and clean that garbage up. Thank you.

.

They said not to worry about the coronavirus, that it’s like the flu and will kill only a few people, mainly us old people. So that should be good news for everyone but us old people.

.

Seems to me like that instead of making a lot of testing kits to see who has the coronavirus they should put some of that money into finding a cure for the thing. Most people who get it know they have it. The way I see it, if you hurt from your neck down and you’re congested up you’ve probably got it. Treat everybody like they’ve got AIDS. Tell everybody to sit on their behinds and keep their mouths shut, is all I know.

.

There is going to be a remake of the movie, Dumb and Dumber, starring Donald Trump and Rush Limbaugh.

.

Didn’t the Whitesburg schools take down a Bible verse that somebody had put up on the wall because of atheists? An atheist is one of those who knows everything but doesn’t know anything. God bless America and God bless President Trump.

.

It’s amazing how a certain woman can go out here and work five days a week and still draw SSI and also talk bad about her neighbors.

.

I am so thankful that some of our people in Letcher County are supporting our Bible verse. I think it is wonderful that they will stand up. I think the whole county needs to stand up for that. Like one lady said, we shouldn’t be put behind; we should be put up front. And I think we should have been asked. What kind of leadership do we have over our central office in our school system? Maybe we need a change. Thank you.

.

Concerning the person who voted for Trump but won’t do it again: I have a lot of respect for that reader. For those of us who voted for Trump and are now sorry doing that, it’s hard to admit we were wrong. After three years, though, it’s pretty clear that Trump is cheating all of us except those in the seven-figure income bracket. Worst of all, though, is the fact that he is cheating our wonderful country and lying about it. I think that reader who has guts and enough humility to care about the truth ought to run against Mitch McConnell. That would get my vote.

.

I would like to invite all Republicans to take a cruise on a cruise ship.

.

What’s on my mind is that I am really upset over this school system painting over that Bible verse. I cannot believe our superintendent agreed with that organization to take it down. She sat back and let this happen even though we have rights, too. I am really disappointed with the superintendent for sitting back and letting this happen.

.

‘President Obama has a major meeting on the NYC Ebola outbreak, with people flying in from all over the country, but decided to play golf!‘ These words were written on October 23, 2014 by Donald J. Trump — yes, the same Donald J. Trump who was in Florida playing golf over the weekend at his private Mar-a-Lago club while the United States is in the middle of a crisis over the coronavirus. What a hypocrite.

.

If the Dow drops 1,000 points in two days the president should be impeached immediately.’ The words of Donald J. Trump, written in November 2012.

.

What a surprise — not. Another gay Republican politician comes out of the closet and admits he is homosexual after years of trying to hide his gayness, even to the point of casting votes in the U.S. House of Representatives that were designed to hurt the gay community, such as his voting to ban same-sex marriage. The gay Republican we are talking about this time is Aaron Shock, the latest in a long line of gay-bashing Republican gay men who hide in the closet until they are ‘outed.’ Unfortunately for this man, he was thrown out of office a couple of years back for spending taxpayer money on tickets for a Katy Perry concert and a $74,000 car. Maybe Trump, at the request of Ivanka and Jared, will pardon him of his ‘sins’ since he has male model good looks. By the way, the Republican Party has just as many, if not more, gay people in it as does any other party even though many of them choose to remain in the closet. If you don’t believe me, just look at all the pretty boys that pour out of those Republican campaign buses when they stop in eastern Kentucky at election time.

.

When did the Letcher County School System start letting drivers use a bus when there is no school? They drive here and there and all over and we taxpayers have to pay for that. That bus garage needs to straighten up.

.

To all you good and wonderful and smart people out there: Get your Bibles out and let’s go to Titus 1:11 and see if this doesn’t describe the preachers today on TV, and some locally. It says, ‘Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.’ In other words, they are there for the money. People, by the time they pay their employees, airplanes, hotel rooms, etc., there’s not much left for the people. So get out from among them, as it says Revelations. These people are nothing but crooks. Have a nice day.

.

With so many thousands of lies coming from Trump and the White House we the American people cannot depend on the truth about any topic. He has lied about devastating hurricanes and tried to use the National Weather Service to fool the people. Now Trump claims the coronavirus is Obama’s fault. We have no leadership and haven’t for over three years. Anyone who sees and hears Trump talking actually can tell he is lying even about little things of no worthy substance. We are pawns for a narcissistic man who needs medication. The virus is deadly but he is still claiming it’s no big deal. If you check the history of Hitler when he came into power his slogan was also Make Germany Great Again. Hitler also believed that if you tell big lies and repeat them often enough the people will believe it. We all know that Hitler’s leadership cost millions of innocent people to be put to death for no reason at all. Our country cannot survive another four years with this man sitting in the White House. I’m sure that all of the people who voted him in will appreciate having their Social Security, food stamps, HUD assistance and Medicaid stopped. We need Mitch McConnell, Rand Paul and so many others taken out of Washington. The swamp isn’t a swamp anymore; it’s a waste treatment plant that has malfunctioned.

.

The U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly said that officially organized prayer is coercive in a school environment, even when designated as voluntary. Apparently, citizens of Letcher County only support the Constitution when it aligns with their beliefs.

.

Let’s face facts. We now have a ‘socialist’ running for president. His name is Bernie Sanders and in my opinion he’s essentially a communist in sheep’s clothing. Don’t be fooled when he says he’s a Democratic-Socialist. In the past he has praised various aspects of communist dictatorships like Fidel Castro’s Cuba, the late Hugo Chavez in communist Venezuela, and communist Nicaragua’s regime. He and his wife even went to the Soviet Union for their honeymoon years ago, and returned with glowing praise of the brutal communist regime there. And notice how he now loves to criticize the United States. If he has his way, he’ll have almost every aspect of life in the U.S. taken over and controlled by the federal government, just like in communist dictatorships. So please don’t be fooled by Sanders’s ‘free everything’ promises and his ‘socialist’ label. Nothing is ‘free’ and your taxes will go up dramatically to pay for his socialist schemes. Please keep this in mind when you are deciding which presidential candidate to vote for. Any of the other candidates is a better choice than ‘Communist Bernie.’ Think about it. Thank you.
