Think about this. If you are a veteran or have a loved one who served in the military fighting for our freedom and you voted for the nastiest men in the United States, Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell, then you should be ashamed of yourself. Shame on you.

.

Everybody who voted for Trump should call in — or better still, write him a short letter and tell him that they voted for him in the General Election of November 2020. You should also date the outside of the envelope as ‘mailed 3rd of November 2020.’ That way people would know that ‘that many’ people did vote for Trump ‘that’ day.

To the taxpayers of Jenkins who pay high school taxes: Our school system is such a mess that over half the students are failing. So my question is why have the school? If our students are not getting the education, we should not have to pay these taxes. And I blame the current school board members for all that is going on.

.

The Donald Trump era will live in infamy. Little did we 79.8 million who voted for Joe Biden realize that there are more than 73 million closeted racist supremacists in our nation. Now that Trump has made it fashionable to exhibit these disgusting traits it has turned family members against one another and neighbor against neighbor, God help us all.

.

The coronavirus continues to spread across the United States, causing death and destruction, and Donald Trump does nothing but play golf and tweet about the election he lost fair and square.

Autumn: When the leaves had fallen, /After months of trodding, /To slop the fat hogs. /A chilly morning arrived, /Gathering around, /The families, /Made plans to gather, / With their efforts, /A big metal washtub, /Over a fire, /Steaming vapors, /Of misty fog, /Came the day, /For the dues, /Of the hog. /All day long, /Requiring every able hand, /To dress the plump body, /Revealing bacon and ham. /Strolling down, /The butcher’s aisle, /These days just shows, /Cellophane packaging, /By the pound. /When years past, /The race against rising temperatures, /Meant stringing up, /Side pork sprinkled, /With salt, / Or grains of sugar. /Perhaps those days, /Of years gone by, /Replaced by convenient choices, /Nearly wrapped, /And traded for currency, /Have been forgotten, / Then replaced by, /Modern gadgets, /And squeamish words, /Our grandparents would have, /Considered way too, /Citified, /And be appalled, /At our acceptance, /Even dependency of, /What they saw, /As daily life.

In less than 10 months, coronavirus has killed more than 250,000 people in the United States. That’s more than strokes, suicides and car crashes typically do in a full year, combined. Medical staff are overwhelmed with record hospitalizations, governors are rushing to issue restrictions on gatherings, and deaths are averaging the highest in months. Infections are mounting in major cities, a major setback after a spring spent battling the ravaging virus nationwide. And yet supporters of our Cheeto president keep telling us what a great job he’s doing. Unbelievable.

.

News flash, Trump-lovers: Your Führer lost — decisively (that means ‘BIGLY’). Now, if you think you’re going to ‘install him by force’ I suggest you get up on your hind legs and try it. The sooner you’re all removed from American society — permanently — the better.

.

Up here in Washington State my friends and I really enjoy the occasional Speak Your Piece letters by ‘The Midnight Writer.’ They’re different from any others and are a pleasure to read and think about. Nice to read letters that aren’t about political issues or who’s currently tattling on their neighbors. So keep on sending in entries and we’re always eager to read your interesting words in future issues of this newspaper. Thank you to the ‘Midnight Writer.’

Trump has been saying the 2020 election would be ‘rigged’ for almost four years, and his cultists believe this man who has lied more than 25,000 times during this period. If you believe the Democrats committed election fraud, consider these three ideas: 1. If they could rig the presidential ballot, wouldn’t they have rigged the House and Senate races also? 2. Democrats aren’t solidified enough to pull off such a fraud, because they think for themselves instead of following their cult leader. 3. If there was fraud, it was the radical right (or Russia) doing it, because Biden’s victory was actually closer than it was predicted to be. Trump is the one who told voters in North Carolina and Florida to vote by mail and then go vote on election day.

.

The past four years have proven conclusively that the Republican Party is no longer ‘Patriotic Americans’ by any rational standards. They are traitors and homegrown terrorists, and every last one should be dealt with as such — swiftly, harshly, and permanently.

.

Some Americans look at Republicans today, and wonder, ‘What the **** is wrong with those people?’ I can understand the question; I mean, look at their behavior. Republicans claim to be Christians, but lie through their teeth like dogs, follow idiotic conspiracy theories like they’re the Bible, and worship a treasonous, manipulative, utterly unethical piece of trash like Donald Trump as if he’s the second coming of Jesus. They claim to be ‘patriots’ but nothing could be further from the truth, as they no longer believe in anything the United States stands for. The bottom line is, these are the kind of people who would, and do, allow their own children to die in agony if it means an opportunity to hurt someone else. They are not ‘good Christians’; they are not ‘patriotic Americans’; they are not ‘good people,’ and they need to be removed from civilized society while we still have a society to be saved from them.

.

In response to comments from last week’s Speak Your Piece: You said, ‘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 sleep very well, thank you. How do you sleep, knowing that you’re either a bald-faced liar or a brainwashed imbecile, or both? You said, ‘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.’ I would like to think we Americans would have the morals and decency to run every last person like you out of the United States.

.

I just heard where they say new jobs are coming to Pike County? Have they forgotten about Letcher County? Letcher County needs jobs too so we can get people off food stamps and pills and everything else and let them take care of their little children who are crying for milk.

.

If this so-called election is not stopped there will never be another Republican president.

.

I tried to watch the recent meeting of the Letcher County Fiscal Court on TV, but the tobacco chewer turned my stomach. They won’t let them smoke but they will let them sit there with tobacco juice running out their mouths.

.

It seems that every week I read in Speak Your Piece where some poorly informed person claims the Democrat Party is responsible for the legalization of abortion in the United States. A woman’s right to abortion became legal in 1973 after the Republican-dominated Supreme Court of that time ruled by a vote of 7-2 in favor of legalizing abortion in the famous case of Roe versus Wade. The only Democrat who was on the Supreme Court at the time — Justice Byron White — voted against legalizing abortion. Also, the Supreme Court has been dominated by Republican appointees since 1969. That is 51 years the Republican Party has had control of the Supreme Court, yet abortion remains legal in the United States. Stop blaming Democrats for Republican action.

I wish my stupid uncle who came in from Indiana would go back to Indiana. I am sick and tired of putting up with his mouth. He sticks his nose into my business. He does everything his bossy daughter tells him to do.

.

It could be that the increased cases of the virus could be because of increased testing. However, in any case, you should still take every precaution to avoid it.

.

How can people walk into a certain Suboxone clinic with cocaine and everything else in their system and walk out with their medicine? All you have to is look up and down the road — the guardrails are torn all to pieces.

.

I’ve been watching a lot about this pandemic business and I have listened to a lot of people in stores who are raising Cain on account of the lockdowns and all that. I can see where it bothers a lot of people and messes with their ability to make a living. But the thing I have the biggest problem with is this: Our children can’t go to school and all these restaurants have to shut down, yet we can have football and basketball players tackling each other and running into each other. So what is most important in this life, sports or our children? These are people’s lives we are dealing with.

.

Many people are reluctant to give to needy charities because they fear they might be giving money to drug abusers. Drug abusers are almost as dishonest as politicians.

.

I think the meetings of the Jenkins Independent Board of Education need to be publicly announced rather than just being written on a small piece of paper on the front door.

.

Can you be both a Christian and a Democrat? If you are a Democrat do you support the corrupt actions, double-standard hypocrisy, race-baiting agenda and the policies of many of the party’s elected and unelected leaders, including murder by abortion and banning religious freedom? Or are you a Christian who believes in Christ and His government that was prophesied in Isiah 9? Don’t be deceived, God is not mocked. Reference Galatians 6:7. Check the policies of both parties. It is your choice, but you can’t wear the coats of good and evil at the same time. If the blind lead the blind they both fall in the ditch. Reference Luke 6:39. Now are you a believing Christian or a hypocrite? Remember, a double-minded person is unstable. Reference James 1:8. Your decision, you decide.

.

I was just wondering why it is that when the disc jockeys on WMMT give the address to the station they always say ’94 Madison’ instead of ’94 Madison Avenue’? Go ahead and say Madison Avenue.

.

Why can’t President Trump lose like a man? It appears now he’s going to leave the White House screaming and kicking at the fundamental furniture of our democracy — elections, our judiciary, even our post office. It is disappointing to see and it’s getting dangerous for national security and controlling the virus.

.

Mr. Trump, when you all gave us that first stimulus check we needed it. Now that COVID is four- to five-times worse than when you gave the first one, how about ending your focus on the voting system and starting to think about the American people? Put some stimulus money in our pockets. People are losing their houses and sleeping on the streets and jobs are shutting down. We are going to have to take lessons from giraffes and make a little bit food go a long way. Yes, it’s one of those days isn’t it, Mr. President. Some people would complain if you hung them with a new rope. Times are rough out here in the United States. You have never been poor, sir. You’ve never been so poor you’ve had to eat bark and berries or hunt a squirrel.

Does anyone know when TVS Cable has the Shepherd’s Chapel program on? Would you please respond in Speak Your Piece and let me know? Thank you.

.

Be careful where you go to get your tires. I would not go to one certain place, because they are ripping people off and charging more than what the parts are.

.

To a certain person: I will never in my lifetime forgive you for calling the police and having them stop by my apartment the other night and going to get my landlady and bringing her up here. Who the heck do you think you are that you can just do this stuff? I was fine. Haven’t you ever had times when you just wanted to be by yourself? But you wanted to be Miss Drama like you always are. Don’t you ever come near me or speak to me again. I will hate you until the day I day for bringing the police to my apartment. There’s your drama, you fat ugly thing you.

.

I heard on TV where Joe Biden got 12 million more votes than Barack Obama and 10 million more than Hillary Clinton. I just wonder if that’s remotely true. Did Biden ever cross the Mississippi River and campaign in any state west of the Mississippi?

.

It’s amazing how a certain county official can get out here and get free venison anytime he wants it. He doesn’t go hunting; he just knows people who will give it to him.

.

I wish a grocery store that sells food in our city would fix the large pothole coming out of their parking lot. It is not very convenient. Get it in gear.

.

Hey, everybody. Cut this out and put it on your refrigerator. Trump will win. It is not over yet. Just wait and see. This is Monday, November 23. It ain’t over yet. Thank you.

.

I want to wish Joyce Collier and Worley Bates a merry time. I hope the best for them.
