The sheriff needs to do something about the fireworks in the Isom and Jeremiah area. Not sure who is involved, but apparently they have the same fireworks the local festival committee buys. They’re probably on unemployment, because they’re shooting them at all hours of the night and it’s still not July 4.

.

To a certain person: I know it’s been 10 years since we split up, but I still think about you every day and know I made a mistake. When I see your pictures, or when I pass by you, it makes me want to be with you once again. You know who you are and you know who I am. If you want to get back with me I would like to meet up with you this week at our favorite spot. And you know where that is, so I hope to see you there to give me another chance with out. I still love you.

.

The Letcher Fiscal Court loves to tell us what we can do on our own property.

.

The lame stream media is not giving enough credit to the president for all the jobs he’s creating, especially for undertakers and casket makers. Over 120,000 deaths and still skyrocketing. We’re number one! I’ll bet he can jack it up to 200,000 by Election Day. History books will remember this as one of the most important things Republicans have ever done for our country.

.

It’s not the easiest thing in the world to be a county judge or any public official. Sometime you say stuff off the cuff without realizing what’s going on. I don’t blame Terry Adams for anything he said. I do think he is a decent county judge/ executive and I do think he is trying to help the people of Letcher County. I just wish people wouldn’t beat up on him so much, because he has tried. And that’s the main thing; he is a good person.

.

To the man smoking outside of Walmart : That is everyone’s air.

.

I see a lot of turkeys are running for office, especially in the Democrat Party. I saw something a while ago that really upset me. Democrats can’t run on their own platforms so they are taking credit for what President Trump has done and are saying it’s their platform. You people need to realize what President Trump is doing for us. What do you want — somebody who sleeps on the job? This man is on top of everything. Quit badmouthing the president, get your behinds in line, put your masks on, and then kiss my you-know-what.

.

I am pleased that we have at least two politicians in the United States who will stand up and tell the truth. One is Donald Trump; one is Terry Adams. Judge Adams is a fine young man, and he told the truth about what was going on with that march in the City of Whitesburg, which was so silly. I would like to see more people stand up and tell the facts. Nobody is against Black people.

.

People in this world need to realize that racism has been here since the beginning of time. The Jews were against the Gentiles; the Gentiles were against the Jews. It has been going on since the beginning of time and it will always be. It doesn’t mean we can’t live together, but we cannot stop history. History is your future. If you don’t know your history you’ll never know your future. It’s so sad to see how people think. And the best thing to do is to quit this stupid marching and running around and burning and looting. I think it’s just pitiful, and everybody in this country needs to stand up and say stop it, enough is enough. Like President Trump said, if you loot we shoot. That’s the way it should be.

.

If you are one of those who refuse to wear a mask you are part of this country’s problem people. Don’t say you’re an American patriot, don’t say you’re a good and loving neighbor, don’t say you’re a Christian, don’t say you support your country, and don’t say you believe in science. Just say you’re afraid to accept the truth. You’re nothing but a Trump-loving whining liar racist arrogant selfish person who cares for no one but yourself. Wearing a mask can save lives, no matter what you believe.

.

To all you good people who vote for these Democrats all across our nation: Did you see what they did to their citizens in these major cities like Seattle and Atlanta? The Democrat mayor turned on their good citizens and gave the looters and Black Lives Matter the green light to do mayhem on city streets and businesses. Hundreds of millions of dollars of damage. These people are terrorists and they need to be stopped cold. I hope all you people understand if Joe Biden were president there would be a blood war in this county. The good people in our county would have to fight for themselves. We know the Democrats will not help. They have already showed us that. God bless America, Israel, and our President Trump. From the Harlan County man. And God bless our police and Judge/Executive Terry Adams.

.

Hurry up and get here hot July weather; so all those Snowflakes will melt.

.

Listen, Miss Psychotic, just because you think you’ve got a super education gives you no right to start doing again what you did before. My brother got the plate of food that you brought him, and it was the same thing. You showed no concern at all about him. You know what you gave him. You’re poisoning him again, aren’t you? Sooner or later you are going to the penitentiary for what you are doing. You can’t keep on attempting murder and get away with it. The whole county knows you are doing it. Isn’t anybody in the county concerned about him? You all know who I am talking about. Most of you women know, because she’s been out with just about every one of your husbands. My brother is a good man.

.

Every generation thinks they will be the ones who change the world, but four years ago this generation met Trump. They believed his lies; 90 percent of them had no idea how crooked he was. He said he was the least racist person you could ever meet — wrong. In 1973, Trump and his father were both sued by the U.S. Department of Justice for racist discrimination. Fred paid their way out of it with a monetary arrangement and no admission of guilt. Trump hates Blacks, Browns, Mexicans, Muslims — anyone who doesn’t think he’s the greatest there is. But he’s got this generation believing otherwise. This generation is standing by him like he can do no wrong. It is sad that they can’t see his lack of leadership, how racist his remarks are, and how he can’t open his mouth without lying.

.

Here’s just a little bit more of a hint to a young gentleman who went behind his uncle’s back and tried to have sex with the uncle’s wife: She can’t speak about it, but I can. I’m going to laugh and gloat when this man has nothing and his wife truly finds out what he did behind her back. I can prove it.

.

I’ll say it again: When are they going to tear George Washington and Thomas Jefferson down from Mount Rushmore? What they really ought to do is to put Martin Luther King up there beside them with the words, ‘Free at last.’

.

I remember quiet evenings, trembling close to you.

.

Wake up, shoppers. If you go to the grocery store and order a pound of turkey or a pound of ham and they slice it up for you, there is no price tag to be seen. I bought a pound of turkey recently and it was $8.99. You can buy sirloin steak for that. So just be aware, consumers. Open your eyes, shoppers.

.

I see where the Orange Man postponed his golfing trip to his property in New Jersey this weekend to protect the monuments. But he has not offered to take the time to help the country with the coronavirus pandemic, such as to at the very least mandate that people wear a mask in the states where COVID-19 is spiking again. Coronavirus is now getting more than 40,000 people a day, yet Trump won’t even talk about wearing a mask. All he cares about is opening the country while the virus is affecting more and more people. What a cold-hearted treasonous leader we have. He does not care for human life, just the economy so that he may get help in getting vote this fall. Thank you.

.

To a certain woman: I was just wondering what you tell your husband when you go to meet your boyfriend. Do you tell him you have to go change his diapers twice a day or take him to the doctor or give him a bath? I just wonder about that. And then he talks about me like a dog, that worthless piece of trash.

.

To a certain pest who likes to shoot off his fireworks: Guess what? When you shoot your fireworks off I will have my 12-gauge shotgun right by my side and I’m going to shoot it up in the air. Every time you shoot your fireworks off there will be a shotgun blast right behind you.

.

Hello, everybody, this is the old Trump hater. It takes a big man to admit he was wrong, but I was wrong about Donald Trump. Yes, I am owning up to it. I said he was going to stay at the White House and protect all of those national monuments, but I was wrong. He was still out playing golf, this time in Virginia, and having a good old time. At least I owned up to being wrong. This is the old Trump hater, out.

.

I would like for Black Lives Matter to explain something to us. I am confused about the organization myself. They say Black lives matter, but is it all Black lives or just the ones they prefer. If Blacks kill each other, do they not recognize that? I just saw on the news where the Blacks just killed three Black children last night in Chicago. Why does Black Lives Matter not resist that? Help us understand which Black lives matter, because we are confused.

.

To the piece of trash who said, ‘He should have brought the Ku Klux Klan in behind them and watched what they would have done then’: Good idea, Klan Boy. Bring ’em in and see what happens — Klanners, Nazis, the whole shebang. You all can believe anything you want, but you start bringing that treasonous scum-sucking racist trash into my neighborhood to terrorize people, there will be a whole lot less of that treasonous scum-sucking racist trash going back home to their bunkers. Bank on it.

.

The problem with making videos on cellphones is they come back to haunt you. I would like to know from a certain lady if she will ever confess to her big ordeal over at the Traveler’s Motel on Virginia. That’s why you don’t make videos; they get shown to people. Your big leopard skin lingerie outfit? Yes, it’s out there and it’s going to cost you, too, when your old man finds out.

.

I want to address this to the voters of Jenkins, especially when it comes time to vote for out mayor again. I want you to drive around and look at the roads throughout Jenkins, especially down through Burdine and at Lakeside. Next, I want to say the garbage men need to be trained; they do not know their jobs. Then I want you to consider the drugs that are all around Jenkins. The police here are doing nothing about it because we have no police here to speak of. And then I want you to check out all the dilapidated houses. All of these dilapidated houses are supposed to be taken care of under city ordinance. The money spent on that awful painting on City Hall could have been put toward the roads or something else a lot more helpful for the people of Jenkins. Think about all this, good citizens of Jenkins, before the next time you vote for mayor.

.

I don’t think anyone making a political speech should say they don’t like anyone else running in the race. I think that’s unprofessional.

.

I just wish everybody could be at peace and quit fighting and tearing our nation apart. I think everybody deserves equal rights, but what rights are we going to have left if we destroy our nation? The Lord told us to love one another. All I can say is that I’ll be praying for all and I have no disrespect for anyone.

.

My wife used to work at a thrift store where clothing was sold really cheap. She heard people talk about comparing which cat food tasted the best because cat food was cheaper than regular food. We live in a great country, but what about the people who work all their lives and still don’t make enough money to live on and buy medicine?

.

To a certain person: What are you going to do with the property in front of your house? You don’t have a deed. You better be glad I mowed it, because you are too sorry to mow or move. Go to a court of law and they will send you off. When push comes to shove I will push hard. Smile. From your neighbor, the cat lover. Bye.

.

God bless the protesters, but when they start tearing down public property I am glad our president signed an executive order giving them 10 years in prison.

.

Are the Republicans as mad about the coal miners getting free healthcare as they were about Black people getting it?

.

Yep, President Trump is right as usual. By April the coronavirus will dry up and blow away. Thank God.

.

Dear Speak Your Piece: Was it against the law to print in your paper that Senator Robert Byrd, Democrat from West Virginia and Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, was a friend and mentor to Hillary Clinton and Democrat candidate for president Joe Biden? Speak Your Piece does show a spark of genius in journalism, but do you harbor a flame of bias for the far-left Democrat Party? Thank you, sir. Have a good day. equal opportunity when it comes to angering people on both extremes of the political spectrum — and some in the middle, too.

.

Thank God Jenkins finally got a ball coach that has no kid in school. Thank God Jenkins finally has a coach that us there for the kids and not just the kid.

.

I think a false purpose was hoisted on the people of Letcher County by the Black Lives Matter organization in conjunction with U.S. Senate candidate Charles Booker and his friend and ally, Kentucky State Representative Angie Hatton, with the help and support of Whitesburg Chief of Police Tyrone Fields and Letcher County Sheriff Mickey Stines. Example: Father’s Day weekend. Chicago, Illinois. One hundred and six people shot; 14 murdered including a 13-year-old girl and a three-year-old boy. No one protesting, no one marching, no politicians speaking. This jackass stuff must stop. Thank you.

.

I want to wish my big brother, Dudley Coomer Jr. of Williamstown, a happy birthday on July 1. Love from Sis.

.

I want to wish my grandson, Austin James Coomer of Tennessee, a big happy birthday on July 2. From his grandma, Jackie Adams. I love you.

.

To some of the people out there, especially the hardcore Democrats who want to vote Biden in: You better remember that he’s sick and he has a running mate who is a foreigner. If she gets hold of the country, nobody is going to be safe. So you all better vote and vote your heart. I believe with all my heart that you vote what you feel.

(Not sure where you’re getting your news, but Joe Biden, the presumptive Democrat Party nominee for president, has not selected a running mate for vice president. And when he does announce his choice it won’t be a ‘foreigner.’ To serve as vice president, a person must be a natural born citizen of the United States.)

.

I would just like to tell the people how some other people are cheating the Social Security Administration. A couple living on Number One Hill act like they are not married and pretend to be living apart, but they do live together and draw checks. Both get out and work even though they claim to be disabled. Social Security needs to check into this. Thank you.

.

This is for the people trying to make trouble for Terry Adams, our county judge/ executive. The only reason you all are doing that is because he’s a Republican and the rest of you are Democrats. That’s all it’s about.

.

Obama is still on television supporting and promoting young people — you all need to hit the street.

.

We need to take the military equipment away from the police. Why does a police department need a tank?

.

To the old witch here in Doty Creek: Every time I have weeds growing around my house you call the state police and they fly their little helicopter up here looking for a pot patch. I haven’t grown pot in the last 15 years. You do. That’s what the neighbors hang out with you.

.

Trump says if he gets in for a second term he plans to dismantle Obamacare. This means everyone who has the insurance plan to get their medicine cheaper will lose it and will have to start paying full price. Younger people under 26 who are still on their parents’ insurance plan will lose that insurance. There will be no more insurance for anyone now covered under the Affordable Care Act. Trump also plans to take part of our checks next year to repay the government for the stimulus checks. Trump thinks everyone should think he’s the world’s greatest. He acts like the worst pandemic since 1918 doesn’t even exist — that it’s over. This the generation that has met the devil’s demon and we will be the generation that begins the apocalypse.

.

I’m like some others. I would like to know what animal or animals killed the young boy in Knott County. If it had been coyotes I think they would tell it since they are so bad in this part of Kentucky. Some people have seen mountain lions in this area, so I wonder if it could have been one of them. So, people, just be careful if you go into the hills and always take a gun. If you have to kill something just keep it quiet and pretend you know nothing.

.

When I meet people at the post office and other places they talk about how expensive the meat prices are at most stores. I tell them to check out Food World at Neon Junction. They have a good selection of meat and fresh vegetables, all at reasonable prices. They are a very good hometown store. Check them out and see what you think.

.

I live at Premium and I would love to know what is happening with our mail. Some days we get our mail between 1:30 and 2 and some days it’s after 4 when we get it.

.

Not all Trump supporters are racist but all racists seem to be Trump supporters.

.

People saying that the noose in Bubba Wallace’s garage bay isn’t a real noose is like me telling my Christian friends their cross necklaces aren’t crosses because they can’t be literally used to crucify a human.

.

Why did The Mountain Eagle print a Speak Your Piece comment for the KKK yet make no mention of a people’s Juneteenth parade — declared a national holiday by Governor Beshear — and a Whitesburg Main Street full of art for Black lives? I’m so truly confused about this journalistic decision.
