I think the City of Jenkins needs to re-evaluate its police department. These drug addicts around here are packing everybody off and our police officers can’t seem to catch them.

.

Am I the only person who doesn’t think motorcycle tracks in the grass at Thornton Park is vandalism? I see they were offering a reward for the awful vandalism. It was tire tracks. It’s probably kids who got new dirt bikes for Christmas.

(Riding motorcycles — or even bicycles, for that matter — inside county parks is totally against the rules set by the Letcher County Parks and Recreation Department.)

.

Which is more detrimental? Someone who cries, or the fan base itself that absolutely cries every time this team comes on the court this year?This is one of the biggest let-downs of the Coach Calipari era in Lexington. So, the next time somebody leaves on the bus or goes home, I hope it’s Coach Cal and Mitch Barnhart. That whole team down there needs to cry, because I’ve already gone through enough boxes of Kleenex from having to watch this team this year. This team is sorry. They just don’t have any heart and no leadership. And Cal, if you’re such a great coach, wave your magic wand and make this team a great team instead of all these recruits that are overrated all the time. We’re tired of it.

Yes, I’ve got something wrong with my mind. It’s surprising to me that after you buy a heating unit from one of our small local heating and cooling companies you call them to try to get them to come out and work on it and the owner’s wife picks the phone up and acts like she’ll tell the workers. Well, you wait all day and they don’t even show up or contact you in any way. And then you wait all day the next day. I doubt she even tells her husband if anybody calls. I’m sick and tired of this. I’ve been with heat out in my house going on a week now, and nobody has showed up. What’s a person got to do? When you buy a heat pump and it goes down, you expect somebody come work on it, but they don’t even show up. It’s not right.

.

It will sure be nice to have the Mountain Heritage Festival again, in 2021. It would be fun if they added a Liars Contest.. Of course, they’d need to bar the participation of preachers and Republican politicians. It should be kept strictly amateur..

.

Standing high on the mountain at the head of Bill Moore Branch. Saw something I’ve never seen before in my life, one of those bald-headed eagles from over there at Fishpond Lake at Payne Gap. Did my heart good. Have a nice day.

.

To a certain person: You’ve been out there in public calling me all these names. Let me tell you something, when we went to court a long time ago the court gave me total control and custody of my boys. And I raised them by myself. Every dime I got from you, I had to take you to court to get it. Why are you doing this to me? We’ve been divorced almost 50 years, so why do you step out and call me all these bad names and all this stuff? You are pitiful. I could care less what you do with your life. But I know one thing. The court gave me full custody of my boys, and I raised them, and they turned out really good.

.

What is up with the county not clearing the roads with this last snow storm? I was told when I called my magistrate that the judge hadn’t ordered it. Ours was still ice four days later, until Mother Nature finally took care of it for us after she saw the judge sure wasn’t going to do anything.

.

I’m a lifelong Republican. I wish the Republicans in Washington would just shut their mouths and come on home. They’ve already let the Democrats have it, so there’s no reason to pay the Republicans a salary in Washington, D.C.

.

Never since Jesus Christ has any man been so hated and so persecuted as Donald Trump. And that’s only because he beat Hillary in the election.

.

Why is there going to be an election on January 5 for the senators in Georgia? The Democrat senators were already declared the winners, way before November.

.

When some of the health department employees in eastern Kentucky don’t abide by CDC guidelines, how do they expect the rednecks to abide by them? It seems like they want to preach stuff, but they don’t want to practice it. God bless you. Bye.

.

1776 that’s the spirit. Nancy Pelosi is going to go and pull the President out of the Oval Office by the hair of his head. I know she is getting up there in age and probably remembers the Inquisition, the Renaissance, and the Emancipation Proclamation, but she’s got to realize that Mr. Trump is still the President of the United States of America. I believe I’d ask the Lord Jesus Christ to forgive me. God bless America and God bless you, Mr. Trump. The world’s in a whole heap of trouble.

.

What the CANE Kitchen did by signing all these school children up for a free box or food for Christmas was very nice. There was a lot of people in line getting the free ham, free eggs and everything. But what about the senior citizens who were in line for a free dinner on Wednesday? They were supposed to serve dinners until 2 p.m., but some seniors were turned away because they ran out of food. Thank you very much.

.

Dear Mr. President, I voted for you twice. But listen, you are letting all those high-class people out of jail for whatever reason. Why don’t you let some poor black person or some of us poor white people out of jail who are innocent and are in jail by the thousands with life sentences? Have a good day, sir.

.

Didn’t they stop oil and gas drilling in Kentucky because of low prices of natural gas and oil? Last time I checked they haven’t drilled in a couple of years. So, if they’re saying that our property tax rates are going up because of oil and gas is going up. Wow. They don’t even drill in Kentucky anymore. That’s one for the books. Thank you.

.

Yes, I noticed in the paper where the county government is going to ask to raise the tax on the gasoline to fix the roads and stuff in this county. I think it’s a total shame that the county and state have to do stuff like this and put another burden on the taxpayers when this stupid Congress of Democrats and Republicans will send billions of dollars to other countries to count fish and to find out what gender people are and stuff of that sort. This government in Washington is absolutely stupid. People need to wise up. It’s absolutely a shame that we would have to pay more money to have our roads fixed.

.

Several months ago, President Trump stated that we would have a coronavirus vaccine by Christmas. Democrat politicians, most of the news media, and TV shows like ‘The View’ laughed and said it would take a miracle. Today is Christmas Eve and we have that miracle. Not just one vaccine, but two, with several more in the making. What a miracle. By the actions of President Trump, millions of lives will be saved. God bless President Trump. Merry Christmas.

It is written in the Bible in Galatians 5:22-26, ‘But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.’ Ephesians 5:9-10 says that, ‘For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth; Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.’

.

To the person who didn’t like me referring to Joe Biden as Adolf Hitler: You proved my point. You like Adolf Hitler, too. You want to be his henchman. You want to kill everybody who doesn’t agree with you. Have a nice day and go eat you some ‘possum.

.

So, after it was all said and done, the only real vote fraud occurred when Trump voters either did vote twice or tried to vote twice for the loser they worship. The one that sticks out in my mind is the man from Pennsylvania who did vote twice for Trump this past November, once in his own name and once in the name of his dead mother. Pretty doggone funny when you think about it.

.

This goes out to a fellow out of Little Colley: If you don’t quit running up and down the road while you have the coronavirus, we’re going to call somebody in Governor Beshear’s office, and he can come and see you. Plus, you’re not supposed to be on the road anyway, because you don’t have a license. We are going to give your car description to Kentucky State Police and let them go looking for you. Then you can either stay at the house or you can be locked up in the big house.

.

I think that Christmas 2020 was probably about the best Christmas I ever had in my life. I had my family together, I had plenty to eat, and the greatest reward was Saturday when Louisville fought the Cats. Boy, the Cats are pitiful this year, aren’t they? They need to call them the Kittens, not Wildcats. They need a real coach. Get rid of Calipari and bring back Pitino. Go, Louisville.

.

The FBI is in Nashville. Republicans better run and don’t talk to them. The world knows what the FBI does to Republicans.

.

This is to the county garbage warden: There’s a certain man in Adams Branch with a huge garbage dump next to the road. This fellow doesn’t know the meaning of cleaning his act up or cleaning up around his place. All he does is trash up the neighborhood and some of us in this holler are sick and tired of putting up with him.

.

Thank you, Mr. President, for signing the stimulus package. Today the House voted to approve a bill that would give us $2,000 in stimulus money instead of the $600 in the bill that was signed. Now we will see if the Senate will vote to give us $2,000. That would be a great help to a lot of us. Mr. President, this virus is not getting better, it’s getting worse. The only thing we can do is shut down America completely to only emergency movement. Enforce it, make masks mandatory, and let’s stop this thing. The way it’s going, more people will be dying every day. There’s nothing good going on about it. And the medicine they’re started shooting into people, they don’t know what it’s going to do. So, I say God bless America. It’s one hell of a mess.

.

To all you Democrats out there who are going to take the $600 stimulus payment: I know 400 other men and women had to do this, that and the other, but Donald Trump didn’t have to sign their bill. So, you ought to send the money back if you are a true Democrat.

.

To the people who voted Jamie Hatton in as county attorney: Why won’t he do anything for the people? Why won’t he let anyone talk to him? I think he’s got an arrogant attitude. Thank you.

.

We have a governor who is lying to the people. He says that all the people who die with the coronavirus will go to a better place. That is a lie. First of all, he cannot look at someone’s heart and see what is in them, only Jesus can do that. Jesus is the judge, not the governor. Read Matthew 7:14.There is an eternal hell and real people go there. There are so-called moral people who die and go to eternal hell. There is only one way to keep from going to hell. Jesus said I am the way, the truth and the life. Jesus said you must be born again, so if you have not repented of your sins and been born again, then you are lost and on your way to an eternal hell regardless of how good you think you are. Call on Jesus to save you.

.

Donald Trump may have had a valid complaint about voting irregularities. I guess it is okay for me to confess that in a sense I voted twice. My one vote was ‘for’ Joe Biden and ‘against’ Donald Trump.

.

Humpty Trumpty sat on a wall/ Humpty Trumpty had a great fall/ Neither ‘Sucky’ Guiliani nor ‘Lying’ Michael Flynn/ could put Humpty Trumpty back together again.

.

To the caller who said, ‘Both political parties in Washington wanted rid of Trump because he was about to tear their playhouse down. If you hate Trump, you hate this country. His role was to put it back on track’: What you said is just more treasonous lying through the teeth of a Nazi-loving, Putin-hugging, neo-Confederate hyena who wants to try and instigate a second civil war.
