If you are considering sending money to help Trump with his legal fund, please realize that he has previously ‘ borrowed’ money from charities to line his own pockets and has used investor money for his business ventures before filing bankruptcy six times. He didn’t lose a dime — it wasn’t his money. Also, bipartisan studies have proven that during his short time in office, he has lied more times than all the other presidents put together. So far, over 24,000 times. If your spouse lied to you as much as he does, you would have dumped them long ago. Wake up.

November 11 was Veteran’s Day and I honored my people who fought in the wars. Confederate soldiers are also United States veterans, but that’s something the people in Washington don’t understand, especially those who say the Confederate flag is racist. I am proud of my ancestors.

.

Trump, you said in a speech you gave a while back that if you lost the election you would leave this country. Adios amigo. Get up and be ready to leave this country on January 20, 2021. And do us a favor and don’t ever come back. We don’t want to see your ugly face again or your spineless egotistical attitude. Good-bye forever.

I guess Amy McGrath has been sucker-punched again, but Kentucky used her and got $90 million. That ’s more than she would have gotten if she had won. She would have been taking orders from AOC, Chuck Schumer and Kamala more than she took from the military. Kentucky can’t be bought. She needs to stay home and raise her three beautiful children. The reward will be greater in the end.

.

As frightening as it is that 73 million United States citizens could would vote for four more years of Donald J. Trump, it is uplifting to realize that there still are 79 million United States citizens who still believe in human decency and the rule of law and therefore voted to get this criminal and his corrupt gang out of the White House.

.

Governor Beshear is obsessed with COVID-19. He needs to take care of other things. Can’t he get enough Democrats who know what they are doing to get these desperate people their unemployment?

( Just a thought, but simple facts make it a tad difficult for Governor Beshear to ever find ‘enough Democrats’ to approve any legislation he might desire —such as funding for new software to handle unemployment insurance claims — since the Kentucky General Assembly (that’s the state House and state Senate) is overwhelmingly controlled by members of the Republican Party.)

.

I take it that you people who have worshipped Trump and said he was sent to us by God are now saying that God stepped in to bring a decent man like Joe Biden back into the White House. You can’t have it both ways; if you believe God anointed Trump then you have to believe God anointed Biden.

.

Joe Biden winning the presidential election just goes to show you that the Democrats and the black people can get by with lying while the Republicans who try to tell the truth get screwed. Well Donald Trump got screwed and everybody knows it. The election is not over yet, because the truth is going to come out sooner than later. Barack Obama is going to get in trouble for what he has done. When Joe Biden got elected it was a slap in America’s face, just like it was when Obama was president for eight years.

.

I think the Whitesburg Fire Department should hire Appalshop to write them a grant so they could get money to fix their driveway. Something needs to be done.

.

You mark my word — on January 21, 2021, Donald Trump will announce that he is a candidate for President of the United States in 2024. Will someone please inform the folks at Fox News Network that the election is over and Joe Biden won in a landslide popular vote and in the Electoral College vote? I hope Trump does run again so we can burst his bubble again. P.S. look up the word ‘trumpery’ in the dictionary and you will see how the name ‘ Trump’ could have been derived from ‘trumpery.’

I wish our grocery store’s deli wouldn’t have three price tags. I can’t tell how much anything costs. I would buy cheese if I knew how much it was and what kind it was. So let’s work on that. Thank you.

.

Looks like the pretty girl from Beaver Dam’s been at it again. Wasn’t that a cute mug shot?

.

I want to wish my grandson, Nathan Eddie Hurley, a happy 18th birthday. It was on November 16. From his Mamaw Jackie. I love you.

.

I want to wish my brother, Nathan Eddie Hurley, a happy 18th birthday. From his sis, Alexis Jo Adams.

.

To all you Democrats who voted for Joe Biden: I had more faith in you all than that, but you all voted for a man who is number one for abortion. I hope you sleep good at night.

.

I came back into town and just realized that one of my very good female friends had passed away. Jerrica was a wonderful lady. I am sad to see her go. She was greatly loved. The last time I saw her she was at McDonald’s working. She was a wonderful person.

.

Mr. President, you lost. Take a step back, sir, and just gradually step down and let the public have what it wants. The Israelites cried for a king, so they got them one. Let’s see what goes on. The American people have decided. Let’s see in four years what is happening. You will still be here, and we’ll be here. Run again, Mr. President. God bless America and God bless you, Mr. President. We will always be behind you, sir, but the majority has spoken.

.

You called me all the names you called me to everybody? Well listen to me; you’re the one who has been married eight times. I believe you have been married eight times because you beat the other seven like you beat me. You don’t have any right to talk to anybody about anything.

.

My wife voted for Donald Trump. I’m going to divorce her. He has told more than 35,000 lies since he was elected and has paid only $750 in income taxes. Everything that came out of his mouth was a lie. The Internal Revenue Service let him by with owing $450 million and he was bragging about it. Thank you.

.

When I was a little girl — I’m 69 now — my mother told me that when they came up with these ’puters they would one day hit a button that would blow up the entire United States. After this election I believe every bit of that. That’s what is going to happen to us — we are all going to get blown up.

.

Well, Mitch McConnell, you played dirty pool again and now you are in office for six more years. But with Trump freaking out over not getting re-elected you may get fired if Trump figures out you are going to go disloyal against him after the Georgia runoff elections for Senate. I hope Trump gets as freaky as possible on you and then snaps at you and says, ‘You’re fired.’

.

They say one acre can take 150 tons of carbon dioxide out of the air, so why don’t we just plant more trees?

.

To these Kentucky women: I was born and bred right here in the state of Kentucky. But I’ve got news for you; I’ve run into some Minnesota women here who are all about having fun. You Kentucky women don’t have a flat thing on the Minnesota mamas. They sure know how to get it done.

.

Just wanted to say that today is Veteran’s Day. I have four brothers in the ground who were in Army — one was in World War II, one was on the front line in Korea, one was in Germany, and one was a paratrooper. I’m going to Harlan today to visit my father-in-law. He’s 93 years old and has had a leg amputated. He is a World War II veteran also. They all wanted me to send this message to these people burning the flags: They hope you get a front seat in hell for doing that. Thank you.

.

Sitting here watching the news on television. The only thing I see is the world’s largest group of bullies trying to take an election they don’t have yet.

.

As popular as Obama was, how is it possible for Joe Biden to get eight million more votes than Obama ever did? Think about it.

.

If I were one of the more than 6,000 Letcher County voters who cast a ballot in favor of continuing Donald Trump’s ungodly behavior in the White House for four more years I would be down on my knees praying that God forgives me when it is my time to go. Donald Trump could well be the antichrist and the vast majority of the people in Letcher County and elsewhere in eastern Kentucky actually supported him? How sad.

.

A friend of mine said that when you get your house burned down the first time it hurts. He said the second time it doesn’t hurt as bad because you don’t have as much to lose; and the third time doesn’t count.

.

When you get run over by a hit-and-run driver you have to pay your own medical bills unless you sue the hit-and-run driver. And since it’s a hit-and-run driver, how are you supposed to sue him or her when you don’t know who he or she is?

.

To the person who said they hope Mitch McConnell gets his way and cuts out the checks for the people on Social Security Disability: You better think about it. Social Security Disability is what people paid in when they were working. It’s not SSI, which is Supplemental Security Income. They are two different sources, so get your story straight.

.

Hey, Joe Biden, if you take all the carbon dioxide out of the air what are the plants going to do? Isn’t that plant food? If the scientists are saying this and that it might be because if they said it the other way they wouldn’t get any funds, would they?

.

Each week when I read Speak Your Piece I cannot help but wonder what you Trump fans with sons would think if your son came home from school one day acting like Trump. What would you say if your son came home telling lie after lie while making fun of kids less fortunate than him and sucking on a Tic Tac while grabbing girls by their private parts? Bet you would be proud, wouldn’t you?

.

When I was a kid we played Rebels against the Yankees and the Confederates against the Union. The kids divided up and played games. I wonder if in one hundred years from now the adults are still going to be playing Trumpsters against the Socialists.

.

I thought the county government was broke, yet all the employees just got a raise.

.

No middle school sports, girls or boys, anymore. So what is the plan? I’m sure with all the knowledge there you all have a plan. Laugh out loud.

.

You should already know this, but I will refresh your memory. You cannot have a felon on the payroll in a school district.

.

Wake up, board members. There are questions that are going to have to be answered.

.

A man who will hit a girl or a woman is a wuss. If you want somebody to fight with, Mr. Colly, come on up into Colly and you will be needing something for the pain, because I’ll swell knots on your head quicker than anything you’ve ever had laid on you.

.

Well I’ve seen a couple of the new license plates. Governor Fletcher had ‘Unbridled Spirit’ put on our license plates and the Democrats just couldn’t stand looking at it.

(Yours would be a funny story — if it were all true. However, it was the citizens of Kentucky — not then- Governor Ernie Fletcher — who adopted the slogan ‘Kentucky Unbridled Spirit’ in late 2004. It was one of four possible slogans put up for a ‘vote’ that drew the interest of more than 50,000 citizens. Interestingly, a large number of Kentucky citizens hated the old ‘Mr. Smiley’ license plates, which were adopted during the Paul Patton administration in December 2002, so badly they paid extra to have the ‘Unbridled Spirit’ plates issued as specialty plates before the slogan became the norm a couple of years later.)

.

For you people who hate McConnell over the coal business, you just voted for a man who promised to shut down oil, gas and coal, and to raise your taxes on his first day in office. What kind of world do you live in?

.

Howdy folks. In the year 1900 there were fewer than two billion humans on Earth. Today, after 120 years of non-stop breeding and population increase, there are now close to eight billion humans. And projections are that by 2100 there will be around ten billion humans on Planet Earth. Why is it that you’ll never hear any political leader of any nation, any religious figure, or U.N. official advocate what I see as the ultimate solution to worldwide pandemics, mass starvation, destruction of the environment, pollution and climate change? Nobody dares to mention the totally obvious cure to those and other problems in human society: The human race needs to start now limiting the growth of the worldwide human population in every continent. There is no ‘human right’ for people to pump out endless children. Usually there is little to no planning to provide all the physical, financial, educational and emotional needs of the resulting offspring. You’ll never hear any politician or preacher talking about limiting the rate of growth of the worldwide human population. All they do is advocate unlimited human breeding that will keep the world heading toward eventual population and environmental disaster. How these limitations can be implemented will need major study and discussion. It’s the future rate of population increase that needs to be addressed, not ‘getting rid of’ people who are alive today. Please start thinking about this important issue. I realize that my ideas are not in the mainstream at this time. But they will be in the future. Thank you.

With all the many other chaotic and turbulent times of viruses and violence to rioting in the streets and abuse of power, another threat is out there. Drug addiction. The greatest thing about this is I can speak anonymously. I shall do so. This could possibly be one of the most outright and brutally blunt contributions to this forum you have ever read. And I will speak from experience. Be it understood that what I am about to say is no longer a part of my life. I paid my dues and I choose to no longer participate. This year has placed a clear view of four people whom I was aquatinted with. I avoided them because they were active drug users. All four are dead. The fourth person will be laid to rest in a few days. I was once a part of a drug ring. I am here to tell you that drugs will destroy your life and most probably someday kill you if you are using. All four of the people I reference died of drug-related reasons from overdose to feeling 10 tall around other high people who turned into Godzilla from the effects of the drugs. Your top drug kingpins go by the rule of don’t get high on your supply. They want your money and plenty money is to be made right off the backs of people dependent upon the dope. This area is a beautiful place, but for several hundred years outside establishments have exploited natural resources such as coal and timber. If you think drug lords are not exploiting another resource, the most valuable of all human lives, you better pull your head out of the sand. Although poverty is high, people can and do put drugs as a priority. Drug lords know that an addict will sell their soul to the devil for a dime. Do you think they care about human suffering? They do not. It’s all about money. Dark and dangerous forces and organizations of crime are what is filtering in the drugs to be sold by mules. And trust me, if you are reading this and selling, I bet there’s a 99 percent average you are a mule. The pack beast. I don’t care how much of a bigshot you think you are you are a distributing mule.

Go to any big city, let’s randomly say Atlanta, and take a walk to the megalords — the people who import or massively manufacture drugs. Do not be naive. I have been there. People there is help available to you if you are using. Some excellent effort is being made locally to control and curb drug abuse. I hope they are successful because in a few days I will be attending the funeral of another drug overdose casualty. And although it has been years since I was involved in drug activity, I grieve for overdose victims because beyond any doubt all those years ago people died from my actions. I never thought about that at the time. I wanted the money. These days I do think about that and I am remorseful. This comment could stretch on a mile, but I am trying to get across that if you have a drug issue reach out to someone who cares. Get help. I am worn out from attending funerals for overdose victims. Drug addiction is an illness. I bet if you accidentally sawed your hand off you’d run to the hospital. Well, why can’t you ask for help if you are using? Do it today, because tomorrow your name might be on the bulletin board at the funeral home.

Surely the American people are not so deceived to believe the lies of Democrats. How is it possible that the people of the United States would vote for Hilary and Obama and Biden? Don’t they remember the misery and suffering we endured under the cruel Democrats when Obama and all his crooks were in office? Well if the American people were so deceived to vote for Biden and the Democrats then they deserve what they will get. Don’t they remember $3.50 a gallon for gas? Don’t they remember no coal jobs? Don’t they remember not being able to buy ammunition like .22 shells? I hope that the election was rigged, for if it was not rigged by the Democrats then our nation is in pitiful condition. I would like to think we Americans would have better morals and decency about us than to vote for the filthy and ungodly Democratic Party.
