It’s that time of year again when a lowdown scumbag goes around camping out in cemeteries and doing a little destructive business to them. What kind of people camp out in cemeteries? They’re not in their right mind. We need to catch the people who do this stuff and put them behind bars where they belong.

.

I would like to wish three people a happy birthday, starting with Beverly Halcomb Mosier, a great friend, whose birthday is on March 18. Happy birthday also to our first cousin, Selma Lou Banks, on the 25th. And happy birthday to Lonnie Wayne Pack, our youngest brother, on the 29th. That’s all folks. Thank you. Mr. Stanley Pack.

.

Folks, we should all be thankful for having the governor we now have. Just think what this would be like if Bevin was still in Frankfort. Mr. Beshear is a wonderful governor. He takes the time and actually means what he says.

If Donald Trump hadn’t tried to hide this virus from us back in January, he could have ordered the federal government to take the steps necessary to stop this virus situation in a matter of a week or so. For those of us who aren’t already retired or don’t live on government assistance, life as we know it will never be the same again. It scares me think about how many businesses will go bankrupt right here in Letcher County because of this mess.

To a guy in a black Jeep: You’re a pervert, sitting around gawking and staring at people. If you do not stop doing what you’re doing, I do know who you’re with and I will tell her what you are doing. So find something to do besides sitting and looking at someone’s hind end all the time.

.

To the big boy in Jenkins who thinks he’s getting away with flirting and running around: You better watch it. Your wife, or girlfriend, is getting ready to be taken. If you’re going to flirt around with my girlfriend then she’s going to be mine. And I’m going to tell her who you really are.

On January 22, one day after the first American case of coronavirus was announced, President Donald Trump was asked about it by CNBC’s Joe Kernan. ‘Are there worries about a pandemic at this point?’ Kernan asked. Trump answered, ‘No. Not at all. We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China, and we have it under control. It’s going to be just fine.’ On March 9, Donald Trump said, ‘This blindsided the world.’

.

If Joe Biden is elected to be the next president of the United States, I fear this is what will be done by the Democrat Party: First, the leaders of the party will have President Joe Biden psychoanalyzed and found to be mentally unfit for the job, and will therefore have him removed from the office of president of the United States. Then they will put some Democrat who wants to change the U.S. into a communist-type country. Therefore, we the U.S.A. will become a Third World power. Thank you very much.

.

Why don’t they close down the whole town of Whitesburg and everything else in Letcher County and move it all to Floyd County? That way we could get rid of all this bull that’s going on around here. Just move it all to Floyd County is what I say.

.

I’ve been reading the comments in Speak Your Piece complaining that the school district and superintendent didn’t stand up to the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF). You do realize that if they hadn’t removed the Bible verses from the schools they would have been slapped with a lawsuit, don’t you? I haven’t heard that the school district has a lot of surplus cash lying around lately, so a lawsuit brought on by the FFRF would be a disastrous expense. The superintendent did what she did because it’s the law and to prevent a costly lawsuit. She didn’t do it because she liked it or because she agrees with FFRF. Students are still allowed to pray, gather together, read the Bible just as they have always been, but the school itself is not allowed to put these things up. We don’t have to like it, but it is settled law.

.

Lots of stupid people out there agree with Nancy Pelosi that we are all immigrants. If you were born in this country, tell me where you immigrated from.

.

Over here in Cumberland we had a police officer who took someone to jail a few weeks ago, and the jail officials noticed that he smelled of alcohol. So they called the Kentucky State Police and had them pull the city police officer over. They never told what they found in the car, but the chief came and drove the car back. Nothing else has ever been said about it. It’s all just been swept under the rug.

.

You people in Letcher County better be thankful that you have Mickey Stines as sheriff over there. I wish we had him over here in Harlan County to get rid of some of these meth dealers. There are two women up in Lynch who are dealing wide open — meth, cocaine, and pills. I’ll bet I have called the authorities 50 times over he last two years and gave explicit information. They will not do one thing to them. They don’t care.

.

To the caller who asked, ‘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?’ Since no one is doing that you can speak any language you want. Just because someone else speaks a different language doesn’t mean you have to. But to answer your question, none. So, here’s what you should do: 1: Burn your Confederate flag. It’s not the colors of the United States, but of a treasonous insurrection; 2: Stop repeating right-wing propaganda such a ‘states’ rights.’ There never was any such thing, and the whole concept was an attempt at pretending the Confederacy wasn’t about keeping other human beings as slaves, and 3: Come to grips with the reality that if your entire concept of ‘culture’ is being racist and bigoted, then your culture doesn’t need to be changed; it needs to be erased. We should have let Sherman finish the job he started way back then.

.

In regards to the ‘gay’ service station in Letcher County, if it’s the place I think it is I think one of the women who works there is cute. I have never had a same sex relationship before but with her, I believe I will. I just don’t know how to go about letting her know how I feel. I am pretty sure some people are going to judge me and have plenty to say. But, those of you who understand might be willing to give me some advice. How do I tell her?

.

We’ve shut down schools, restaurants, some churches, virtually everywhere. Then you have these Suboxone clinics so packed that people can’t get in the parking lot.

.

I guess before long the American taxpayers will have to bail out these airlines. It’s not right. The high prices the airlines have been charging and now the coronavirus is on the loose and they want help.

.

The day is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

I wish the girl in Jenkins was as crazy for me as I am for her, but I should never have gotten my hopes up. She’ll probably know who this is, and if she does she needs to listen to REO’s ‘Time For Me to Fly,’ and she’ll understand the whole meaning. Thank you.

.

Please, Donald Trump, stop all of this winning you promised.

.

If Joe Biden didn’t have his service people with him he would never make it home.

.

I hadn’t been home in years. What I call home is Payne Gap. I stopped to show my children where I grew up in church and Sunday school. We took pictures, and what I saw left me so ashamed and disappointed that somebody is not taking care of Sarah Potter Trinkle’s home right behind the church. That is awful with all the garbage there. We almost never got by the road in our truck because of all the stuff that’s partially in the road. I wish they would clean that up. I just can’t believe it’s allowed to look that right by the road. Thank God I can black out the background.

.

To a certain person: You probably can say a lot of negative things about me, and you can look back as far as you want, but one thing is certain — I never ever impersonated a police officer.

.

How great it is to be reassured by our local governors and mayors across the country because for over three years there has been nothing but lies and coverups by the administration in the Oval Office. We can’t depend on anyone in the Republican Party to tell the truth about anything. On March 15, local TV stations during daytime coverage had news briefs about what is going on with this deadly disease and how we should change our lives accordingly to keep the coronavirus from spreading more than it has. But Trump and his son have called it a hoax — a made up illness to keep Daddy from winning re-election. This is not a hoax. People are dying and the first words Trump said on March 15 were everything is perfect, we have it under control. We have been lied to over small things, but now we are facing life-threatening, serious things that the American public needs to know. Trump just days ago told people not to stop flying or going on cruises because his biggest concern was the loss of money. People, science is real, Donald Trump is not. He disbanded the agency that overlooked communicable diseases in 2018, and then blamed Obama for this contamination even though he is in his fourth year in his office. He claimed at a news conference in the Rose Garden that he takes no responsibility at all.

.

If you are one of those people out there who gets on social media or talks loudly out in public about this coronavirus situation being a hoax, can we assume you will refuse to take the $1,000 or so in stimulus money the government will be paying you before too long? It’s a shame the government won’t be able to refuse payments to the fools who have been saying this is all a hoax.

.

Just waiting and wondering what kind of bug — skeeters or gnats — is going to kill us all out this summer.

.

To the Miles guy wanting to know about the boy on the green bike: You know who he is. You’re in law enforcement, so why don’t you do a little investigating? You may find more than what you think.

.

If anyone out there has any good seed they want to sell, let me know. Thank you.

.

Dear Speak Your Piece: The president or ruler of China or whatever you want to call him is blaming the Wuhan virus on the U.S. Army. The Wuhan virus started in Wuhan, China. That reminds me of the Democrat Party. They did the same thing — blame Trump and the Republican Party for criminal acts they got by with. Ruler man of China, I wonder if you had some of that bat soup that was going around. I sure wish you had some of that tasty bat soup.

.

It’s a very sad time if you’re a basketball fan, but we’ve got to do what’s right for the nation. There won’t be any ‘One Shining Moment,’ usually sung by Luther Vandross, played at the end of this year’s tourney. There are no shining moments at all on this one, other than who may come back to Lexington for next year’s team. I’m looking forward to learn who is going on to the NBA and who is staying. They played their best game of the season against Florida.

.

Well this coronavirus has caused a worldwide toilet paper shortage. But don’t worry, the leaves will be green before long. But just be careful that you don’t get ahold of poison ivy. It will eat you up.

.

I would like to know why the people in the news media and radio and social media think they have medical papers that let them talk about the coronavirus. They are putting the country into a state of panic. Now everybody is out buying up all the toilet paper and hand sanitizer.

.

I honestly believe that North Korea is responsible for this coronavirus. I believe they have found a way to contaminate all the toilet paper. Instead of things getting better, people will add to the virus by using the contaminated paper.

.

If I get that coronavirus I am going to go out and kiss every Democrat I can find, right smack dab in the mouth.

.

My old buddy and me were making a bet the other night when we were drinking together. I said, ‘Reckon how long it will be before two certain ones on Cowan get back together,’ and I lost money. I bet him a hundred dollar bill they would never be back together. Lo and behold I now see them together again. They are a match made in heaven. She deserves everything she gets, is all I can tell her.

.

If you’re worried about coronavirus read Psalms 91. Read it and read it until you understand it and believe it.

.

I hope all you good people out there are taking the Bible’s advice. If they don’t preach without charge then don’t support the lazy things. All this stuff now going on is no small thing. Personally I believe it will be over in about three months. Later.

.

Does anybody out there know if Russia is getting any of this coronavirus? I never see that on TV.
