I don’t think the people of eastern Kentucky should vote this year for the Democrats or the Republicans. They promised us jobs when they took our coal away and now we don’t have anything. We are losing everything in eastern Kentucky and it’s time we started fighting back. Do not vote.

I was just thinking about the bad old days under President Obama when you didn’t have to wear a mask, when you didn’t have to worry about getting coronavirus, and when you didn’t have to worry about riots in the cities. Somehow, making America great again is turning it into chaos. If America is greater now than it was under Obama, why isn’t there peace in the cities? There had been peace in the cities since the Johnson and Nixon administrations. Joe Biden couldn’t be any worse than Trump is. I don’t know if he can bring peace to the cities or not, but Trump sure hasn’t.

The county wants to put a fire tax on property. They have a dog warden and still let the dogs run crazy. The dog warden needs to come up on Goldenrod Drive on Thornton and pick these dogs up. They are destroying everything.

People, please stop ruining Facebook with your political views. When it comes to using Facebook for purposes other than posting some happy note or a family picture or two, most of you should remember that old saying, ‘It’s better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.’ It truly has been shocking to go on Facebook and be inundated with a level of racism and ignorance you never knew existed in some of your neighbors, friends, and relatives. Because of Facebook I have lost a lot of respect for many people I once thought of with high regard. What is wrong with you people? How did you get to be so bitter at the world and those who live in it through no fault of their own? Inquiring minds need to know.

.

I know the people at WMMT-FM are playing it safe during this virus, but why do we have to hear the same Sydney Boles thing over and over again? They’ve played the same thing three times a day over many days. Can they not come up with something new?

.

I wish Kentucky Sports Radio would do a five-minute segment on Speak Your Piece every Wednesday morning. Thank you.

Breast feeding is for babies only to make them healthy, not to put in recipes.

To a certain person in Luxembourg: You know who you are. Your teeth smell of rotten apples and you act like a billy. Don’t act like I don’t know what you are doing behind my back. And if I see you do it again in public there will be problems with me and your mama, especially since 10 years ago we had control over the whole situation and you went and messed it up. So be careful, watch your back, and let me just tell you something else: I won.

.

Okay, Letcher County, you wonder what’s going on in your area? Well, we are run by Democrats. Our county is a Democrat county. We get free stuff and free grants for about everything and people are afraid they won’t get that if they vote Republican. That’s the whole deal. Thank you.

.

A mother transports her son with a rifle several hundred miles to a volatile situation and he shoots two people and kills them and claims self-defense. He had no business being there and his mother should be in trouble for child abuse. Why in the world would he have to go two states away to defend himself? He could have stayed home with his rifle and there would have been no problem.

.

Donald Trump is scaring the same people who are afraid of the booger man. I have friends who just went to Louisville and they didn’t see anything. They went to the doctor down there, they went to the zoo down there, and they didn’t see any trouble at all. Just because there is a small area where there is trouble they are scaring people all across the state. People who are afraid of the booger man are also afraid of black people. They play the same film clips of the same past trouble over and over again just to try to get people to watch.

.

A big part of the coronavirus problem today is related to college students.

.

I have a certain cousin who lives in Jackson. Actually, he stays at this facility for people whose minds have been messed up. Well, he is always calling my uncle’s house and spreading lies on me behind my back. And then he calls some of my other relatives and spreads lies to them, too. Some of our family members won’t come around us now because they believe every lie he tells. He’s been spreading these lies for the past 15 years. He needs help.

.

To a certain man who currently cannot taste or smell: You introduced me to Kentucky Sports Radio. But you better watch your back, I heard the roller coaster is coming for you. If you act like a billy, the chester in me will come out. And by the way, he is not a hall of famer yet. You know who I am.

.

Good evening everyone. It’s a little past 8 p.m. Tuesday. I don’t know why you are talking about President Trump being married three times. In my opinion a person can marry three times. Let me explain: The King James Version of the Bible says that God made man in his image. If you look at a picture of a heart there are three parts. Therefore you can. Thank you Mountain Eagle. Walk with love.

.

I wish we had a genuine Christian President like Obama or Clinton who was caring enough and had the negotiating skills to find resolution to the racial issues. This turning people against each other is anti-American.

.

I was reading in Speak Your Piece about people complaining about Donald Trump shutting down the Postal Service. Evidently, those complaining have never looked at the postmarks on the letters they get. Mail a letter from Whitesburg to Neon or Linefork. They first send it to Knoxville, Tennessee. That is stupidity on the part of the Postal Service and would break anybody. Transportation is very expensive. Think about it. Why would send a letter to Knoxville that was mailed in Whitesburg to someone in Neon? Crazy.

.

I can’t believe my ears. I just heard the orange man — the same one who complains about voter fraud — say that everyone should vote twice; mail in a vote and then go cast a vote on Election Day. Trump is asking people to go and vote twice after he’s been complaining about fraudulent voting. That just goes to show you the shape of today’s Republican Party. They are so disorganized and they are so afraid of the Democrats. And they should be, because they’ve had an idiot running the United States for three and a half years now and it has gone to pot.

.

I’ve been watching all of the shootings during the protests. Now let me say this: If an officer of the law tells you to do something and you don’t do it, don’t expect a good outcome. That is simple and it should not have to be taught in school. If the state police come into your church’s Sunday dinner and tell you to drop your fork or your dessert, you do it. If they have no reason to be there you can take it up later. But the idea that you can do what you want while the police are there is simply suicide.

.

I would never have believed that the United States of America would allow these right-wing militia-type people to dress up in military gear and carry around loaded automatic weapons in the same manner as the terrorists in the Middle East. These fools look just like ISIS soldiers and they are being radicalized just like they are in the Taliban. Trump is their hero just like bin Laden was to the al-Qaeda members. If Trump tells these nutcases to hijack a plane and crash it into a skyscraper they will try it. The only good thing about it is they probably aren’t smart enough to pull off anything other than maybe a truck bombing, and hopefully that won’t be as successful as what their other hero, Timothy McVeigh, was able to pull off in Oklahoma City.

.

Donald Trump blames Democrats for rioting, for the coronavirus, and for everything else. Trump has been president now for three and a half years. He should take ownership of what is going on. These are the result of his screw-ups. The Democrats have screwed up a lot, but never before like this.

.

I just wonder if I am the only one who has noticed that my property tax bill has kept going up for the past 12 years. Mine has increased by about a third without my having done anything to my property. If the property taxes keep going up and the services remain about the same, shouldn’t the Letcher County Fiscal Court start cutting its part of the tax bill? Just a thought.

.

It’s amazing how the sheriff ’s department is getting to be so lazy they won’t even pick the phone up. Or if you go knock on their door they won’t even get up to answer it. The same thing was going on when Danny Webb was in there. They won’t do a thing to help anyone, especially to those who sneak around and vandalize private property.

.

God bless you, Mr. President, and thank you for all that you do for America. God bless your family. Mr. President, I know why Nancy Pelosi was upset about going to the beauty parlor. She went home and looked in the mirror and said ‘I hope I can get my money back.’ Anyway, we appreciate what you do for America, Mr. President. We need men like you in the future, and you will be in the future. Everybody knows who Biden is. And they sure know who Mr. Trump is.

.

Republicans sit back and call the Democrats everything when they have the two biggest liars in Washington in Donald Duck Trump and Old McDonald McConnell. One has been in office for 36 years and the other one has already been in office too long. He didn’t send the stimulus checks to all the people; he just held up sending them so he could sign his name on them. I burned the letter that came to me. I don’t want a thing in my house with Donald Duck’s name on it. You all had better hope that Donald Duck and Old McDonald don’t get reelected this year. America is already in a bad place. It will get much worse if the two old liars are allowed to stay in office.

.

I would rather have Biden eating oatmeal and listening to generals than Trump playing golf.

.

Eventually, it’s going to come down to us having well-meaning, kale-eating zombies beating up tombstones with their bicycles.

.

I am a citizen of the United States of America and I want to say this: Donald Trump does not have any right to say anything negative about any veterans, period. Trump got five deferments from Vietnam for bone spurs while others gave up their lives for their country. As far as I am concerned, Trump should just go back to running a casino or just get out-of-the-way.

.

I hope the members of the VFW and American Legion agree that they are all suckers and losers so they’ll all keep supporting President Trump.

.

Trump and McConnell want us to think we won’t be safe if Biden wins the election. As I look around my beloved country I feel a lot less safe than I did four years ago — a lot less. So much for that plan.

I would like to know why we still can’t get toilet paper and paper towels in eastern Kentucky. I think it’s time that eastern Kentucky people just stop voting, because the rest of the country just doesn’t give a damn about us.

.

Mitch McConnell has shown that he doesn’t care one thing about Letcher County and eastern Kentucky and the loss of our coal jobs and Donald Trump’s killing of our federal prison. Please name to me one thing McConnell has done for our immediate area.

.

Everything Donald Trump has laid his hands on has gone bankrupt — even casinos. Now our economy is in tatters, with 11.5 million people now out of work, and Trump is patting himself on the back for how well the stock market is doing.

.

Shouldn’t these little kids be given typing lessons before they are required to type a five-paragraph story and send it to the teacher? Somebody please help them.

.

I would just like two certain men know they need to get back over there and clean up the mess they left when they logged the property at Dewey Cornett’s. They left trees lying everywhere. They need to clean their mess up. Thank you.

.

I just want to let the people know they can get any kind of dope they want if they visit a certain garage.

.

I would like to take this time to thank President Trump for all he has done on building that big wall down there on the southern border of the United States — the whole five miles that he’s built during his tenure. And he got Mexico to pay zero dollars and zero cents. Way to go, Mr. President, on your true commitment.

.

If you truly believe that voting out these county magistrates and county judge over a $30 tax increase for fire protection will save you money, then you need a reality check. Let these fire departments go with no funding and see how quickly the National Fire Protection Agency comes in and audits these fire departments and watch how your insurance bill will rise. I’m sure the insurance increase will be more than $30 a month. But no, let’s penalize the county judge and magistrates for trying help the community.

(Amen. If something isn’t done to help keep our county’s volunteer fire departments open, the insurance rates for our rural homeowners would definitely skyrocket.)

.

Why would the Letcher County Health Department allow stuff to go on like what is happening at the go-kart racetrack at Gordon? No one wears a mask and there is no staying six feet apart. Channel 57 was there Saturday night. Look at the film and you can tell nobody had a mask on and there were people there from Harlan County, Perry County and other counties in addition to those from Letcher County.

.

We have garbage everywhere, yet our county officials allow at least three tons of paper to be dumped out down here at Kona. That is garbage and that probably costs the Letcher County taxpayers between $5,000 and $10,000. People, start setting examples for your neighbors and for your next-door politicians or whoever. I think this is costing big money. Have a nice day.

.

Trump-suckers are the lowest form of human trash imaginable. Real Americans better wake up soon and put the entire right-wing treason movement down like rats while we still have a United States to save.

.

The number of days left before Donald Trump’s tax reform bill ends for every American citizen? 113.The tax break does not end for Donald’s friends’ corporations. Their tax break was indefinite.

.

The main reason Donald Trump’s dad helped keep Donald out of the military is he knew his son couldn’t follow orders and he would get his butt whipped every day by a fellow recruit. TRJ

When Mitch McConnell comes to Whitesburg seeking your vote to keep his butt in office, here’s what you should do. Wine and dine him. After the meal greet him at the front door with a bucket of tar and feathers. Ride him out of town on a hot rail and tell him to never come back.

.

Antifa is an anti-fascist political movement that began in Italy and Germany in the 1920’s-1930’s.This group is anti-government and law enforcement. Antifa has mixed with Black Lives Matter and now want to defund our police so they will not have anyone to stop them from destroying our country. Laws and police is what keep Americans safe in our homes and make the United States a great country to live in. Everyone should give police the respect they deserve and not resist arrest. They should not fight the police.This way no one gets hurt. Educate yourselves by reading everything you can on the Internet about antifa.
