To a certain chicken tender: You think you’re fooling everybody but you’re not. You think you’re going to fool me, but you’re not. You sent two of your pals down here to Doty Creek today to my chicken farm trying to get chickens for nothing. Think again pal. Why don’t you just get lost? You know something, there’s no law against raising them and selling them. There’s no law against fighting them either.

.

This is to the man in Jenkins who is threatening to burn me out and rob me and things of this nature: I want you to know my sandbox is in a DVR, and everything you say is being recorded, Chris. You have a nice life if that’s possible.

I was so proud of the Letcher County School Board for protecting lives by calling off school for dangerous road conditions. What happened? The worst health crisis in 100 years and you allow in-person attendance and require school personnel to be present even when it’s only virtual. How many Letcher County families have been adversely affected by this decision? I personally know of several. In my opinion, you should be removed from office and be held legally responsible for your dangerous decisions. There’s no good reason to subject students and personnel to potentially fatal contact for whatever pitiful reasons you deceive yourselves with. You should double check and see if the CDC recommendations are being complied with. I don’t think they are. I think you are both legally and morally wrong. You can’t make up for the needless illnesses.

My wife and I would like to really thank the people at the Whitesburg hospital emergency room for their help and service they gave us December 23 coming out of a car wreck. You were really great. We really thank you and the paramedics. Every one of you all were angels. Thank you. We’d also like to thank those at the emergency room at Pikeville Medical Center, especially the nurses in the trauma center and Floor 7. You guys are terrific. You have really shown me and my wife what nurses are all about. We really appreciate your thoughts and prayers you have given to us, and the help you really helped us with. We really appreciate you people. We love all of you. Thank you very much.

.

I’d like to speak a word about the fiscal court of Letcher County. I think we have the worst magistrates and judge that Letcher County has ever had. The roads all over Tom Biggs and Little Tom Biggs and Chopping Branch and Shea’s Fork were solid ice and we couldn’t get any scraping or any salt or anything. All the other courts always scraped roads. We’ve been homebound for four days and can’t get out of the house because the roads are solid ice. They’re waiting for it to just melt. I think that court and the magistrates should do something, or the judge one.

.

I live here in Jenkins and I think that all the Letcher County Fiscal Court wants to do is raise gas taxes on the people of Letcher County. It’s the worst court that I’ve ever seen and I’ve lived here all of my life. Our magistrates are no good at all and the judge is the worst judge we’ve ever had in Letcher County. Thank you.

It’s not complicated. It’s really simple. Joe Biden and the Democratic Party can be described in just one sentence, pro-abortion and anti-gun.

.

In the Louisville game, Kentucky was in a zone defense a lot of the game. The first half we were playing even with them. It was a close game. Then in the second half we’re back in our man-to-man, as usual, and it’s layup city again. Calipari would have had two or three more national championships if he’d have played more zone.

.

All you dummy-crats are going to get what you deserve for the next four years. It’s a shame us decent human beings have to suffer right along with you.

.

We may be the fellowship of the miserable, but we’re not the fellowship of the stupid. Someone needs to tell John Calipari that he needs to stop recruiting players that can’t shoot from the outside.

.

Donald Trump said that if anyone burned the American flag they would get one year in prison. I wonder what lying Joe Biden will do.

.

Trump is a criminal, adulterer, racist, misogynist, xenophobe, narcissist, nepotist, hypocrite, slanderer and liar. For those who support Trump and claim to be religious, I call out your extreme hypocrisy. No legitimate religion condones these character flaws. You bring shame to your religion and to yourself.

.

There is such a thing as economic treason. Think about it. These people should be behind bars for economic treason if justice was served. Biden, Harris, Schumer, Pelosi, Shiff, Comey, Nadler, Sharpton, Obama, Soros and Zuckerberg should be charged with treason. Birds of a feather flock together.

.

Surprising how a crook like McConnell can vote down the stimulus package. I mean he just wants us to have $600, when all he wants to do is not let anybody have that $2,000. He says Kentucky doesn’t deserve it, and neither does the rest of America deserve it. Amy McGrath tied to tell everybody the truth about what was going to happen, but they wouldn’t listen and voted for old Mitch anyhow. It just goes to show you how some people can listen to lies that a stinking Republican like McConnell can tell just so he can keep us from getting the $2,000 that was rightfully offered to us by the President of the United States and Democrats in the House of Representatives.

.

What a shame it is that a mouth on a Democrat has no control over what comes out of the brain.

.

If I’m going to give you $10 and you die before I give you $10, does that mean I don’t owe you $10? These people are getting checks after they die because they’re fooling around on giving checks out. They fooled around about six months and a lot of people died. They’re saying those people shouldn’t get the check. I think those people should get the check if they were alive when they started talking about stuff and a lot of people died last week. What about the checks being in the mail? How are you going to stop the checks from being mailed out when the death certificate isn’t in yet? I think dead people should get a check same as all people because they earned it more than a lot of living people did.

.

Why don’t they talk about the guy in Nashville who blew up the buildings as being a terrorist? Is it because he’s white? The president hasn’t commented on him blowing up the building because he’s black. It’s the black people that are dangerous because they kill two or three people instead of blowing up something all over creation. In other words, they knew that the guy was building bombs, but his being white is the reason he was able to get away with building bombs.

.

I’m afraid The Walking Dead has taken over America. They elected a zombie president in the last election.

.

Don’t you all think it’s funny that fewer Democrats get the coronavirus than the Republicans do? What’s wrong with that picture? What about all those people who were out rioting and looting and whatever, but none of them got the virus. So, what’s wrong with that picture? I believe they know how fix it so that not everybody gets it.

.

I don’t think a lot of us will ever vote again in our lifetime because there are just too many — what do you want to call them? — Democrats.

.

Trump keeps saying, ‘It’s all over the internet.’ Yeah, well, so are Melania’s breasts but that doesn’t mean they’re real.

.

The something that is on my mind is Joe Biden and his wife, the two most ignorant, arrogant people I’ve even known. And they are going to let him be president? I can’t believe that. He’s ignorant.

.

I can’t believe TVS Cable is raising their rates again. In return we get a fake news channel. That’s exactly what this area needs, Cult TV.

.

God bless America. This is the last day of 2020. It’s been one hell of a year. They said the suicide rate is up high in the military. I’ll tell them right now the suicide rate is high all over the world. People are disgusted with this disease that’s been consuming us. They say they’ve got a cure. Well, we’ll see. But let’s train our soldiers to live, not to die. There is something wrong somewhere. Bible says cursed is he that destroys the temple. We are the temple, so let’s train our soldiers to live. Let’s talk to America, the young ones, the old ones, the middle-aged ones, about this suicide business. I hear it’s pretty rough on the other side.

.

To a special lady who used to live in Blair Branch: We had a special relationship 40 years ago. I want you to know that you still hold a spot in my heart. Bye.

I would say Mr. Mitch McConnell, but you’re not worthy of being called Mister. Your worth is an estimated $22.5 million, and some of us can’t even buy a Coca-Cola in the middle of the month. You know what Mr. McConnell? I curse you on every ungodly thing you stand for. May the ships on your harbor sink, may your fish drown, and may you kiss this white man’s behind. Two-thousand dollars might not mean much to a man who has $22.5 million, but it would have bought me a Coke.

.

All of you people out there who know some people who love you and are being good to you, evidently you aren’t very smart because I believe in karma. In the depths of my heart, I believe in karma. And when it comes back to people who have messed over people who have been good to them, paybacks aren’t nice. I’ve seen it happen to people. Stop and think about it before you mess up with somebody that loves you and has been good to you. Have a happy new year, now.

I am not sure you will even print this, but I hope you do. I am the one who commented recently about drug abuse and too many people overdosing. Well, today another funeral was held for another casualty of drug abuse. Out of respect I am not revealing details except to say it was from the effects of drugs. That’s the fifth person I know who has died of overdose in less than a year. People, please understand that meth is made from poison. I bet if anyone who uses meth was asked to directly ingest some of the ingredients used in making meth you would not. My experience with drugs wasn’t meth, but all drugs are straight up poison. They affect the human body negatively, but meth is particularly dangerous, and people are dying. I hate to say it but keep it up and you are going to eventually die. Before you get to that point why do you want your teeth to fall out, sores oozing on your skin, stringy hair, and looking like a skeleton? Why do you want to lose your mind, your family, your friends and everything you have? Explain to me how looking like the walking dead is fun? Now listen, good people are out here to help you. They are not your enemies. It’s the poison that’s your enemy. That’s the dope talking to you and telling you to keep puffing your pipes and sticking needles in your veins. That’s the dope telling you to snort another line. You probably don’t like what I am saying, but if I can save your life then hate away on me. If you are using, I urge you to reach out to people who care. Meth is an epidemic that’s spreading like an ugly boil on society.

Dear Voters of Kentucky: There are no thanks that I or anyone else who lives in the United States of America can extend to you for re-electing Mitch McConnell to the Senate, because there are no thanks deserving. You have re-elected a senator who proves on a daily basis that he has neither your needs in mind, nor anyone else’s in this country. The senator you have re-elected, has blocked various bills in the Senate through his knack of incorporating the filibuster. A filibuster is a means of talking a bill to death in order to delay or obstruct a bill from passing and thus catapulting the bill into oblivion. These bills may have helped, safeguarded or promoted the status of you or of people you know. The senator you have re-elected, instead of coming together across the aisle, has called himself a ‘Proud Guardian of Gridlock.’ But yet, that same senator expresses the need for Democrats to ‘work together’ for the good of the people of the United States. The senator you have reelected has opposed wage increases, prevailing wage laws and black lung benefits. He has refused to support legislation to secure pensions for mine workers and retirees. That decision directly affects the people of Kentucky. The senator you have re-elected refuses to pass a bill that would allow people of the United States a check of $2,000 in order to obtain food, pay rents and mortgages, get healthcare, and other necessities needed while experiencing Covid-19, a world-wide pandemic. The senator you re-elected is worth upwards of $27 million dollars. He thinks you, the people who voted for him, are worth $600 in a one-time payment. I was told when I moved to the south that people here are pretty stupid. I did not believe that. However, you have proven me wrong. The people of Kentucky, re-electing Mitch McConnell, have demonstrated that you, indeed, are as dumb as a bag of rocks. From a resident of North Carolina.

The only ‘good’ Nazi is a dead Nazi, and that has nothing to do with ‘difference of opinion.’ If I find a rattlesnake in my bed, killing it is simply an act of self-preservation.
