Stock market indices are up from seven percent to 19 percent just since Election Day. Thank you, President Biden.

Amazing fact: All of the COVID-19 virus that exists on Earth could fit into a single cola can. The virus is that infinitesimally small.

.

People always talk about how the right-hand fork of Doty Creek is bad for drug dealing, but everybody knows the left-hand fork has drug dealers, too, but the police are afraid of them.

.

As President Biden gets us out of the Trump Pandemic and then the Trump Recession people are traveling more, creating more demand for gasoline, and causing its price to rise from its depressed levels of last year. But just you watch; Republicans will paint this as some kind of diabolical plot. More of their dishonesty.

.

Damn you, Republican traitors, you six who voted to try former President Trump, who is now a private citizen, in the Senate for impeachment. It’s just unconstitutional the way the Democrats and some Republicans think. The Republicans who voted to hold that trial should be thrown overboard. Hold your head high, Mr. Trump. You did nothing but state how you felt, and a lot of Americans felt the same way you did.

.

Everyone deserves a second chance, I thought during my lifetime, but I guess I didn’t get a second chance. Just remember that you will always hold a special place in my heart, Donna.

.

We have six Republicans hanging out up there in Washington, D.C., aka The Swamp, who should have to change their party affiliation since they are not true Republicans.

Is it legal for a city worker to send other city employees to cut grass on one piece of private property and to send city employees to cut a tree on another piece of private property? Is it proper when one city worker’s water line is dug up and fixed while no other lines are being fixed in our neighborhood? Should a man convicted of DUI manslaughter be permitted to drive a dump truck without a CDL? Is it legal to fire a city employee for a failed drug test without sending the test to a state certified lab and without first offering the employee rehab or an assistance program? Should uncertified employees work on our water lines? When a city employee is injured in a fall, is it legal to tear down and rebuild the location where the fall occurred before OSHA and the labor board come to inspect it? Taxpaying citizens need to know how someone is using your taxpayer dollars to treat a city like someone’s own personal kingdom. Looks like the state’s investigators and the attorney general need to come and see what’s going on.

I was a man trapped in a woman’s body. Then my mother gave birth to me.

I watched the beginning of the second impeachment of Donald Trump. Again, the House Democrats subverted the constitution to fit their embellished and destructive agenda. The bigoted Democrats in Congress, mainly from New York and California and Democrat-controlled cities, aided by the propagandist big media, big teach, and their over friendly relationship with China and their willingness to defund the police and misuse and purge the military and open up the border, are jeopardizing the health, safety and welfare of this republic called the United States. For the first time in my life, I am glad that my time in the military defending the constitution and this nation, rendered me unable to father children, for our nation as we know it will end. Thank you.

.

What times we’re in. All the honest, intelligent Republicans, which is about 20 percent of them, are leaving the party.

.

I hope the people who lost their jobs at Pizza Hut can find better jobs with better pay and people who will treat them better. My heart goes out to those people, especially the ones with children to raise.

.

There are two dogs close to where I live that are not being fed or cared for and are being neglected with no proper housing. The authorities, including the local police, are doing nothing about it even though this has been reported to them several times. Can anyone else help with this by telling me somewhere else I can call to get these dogs some help? The owners do not take care of them. They bark 24/7, just like they are right now. I feel sorry for these poor animals since no one here will do anything to help them. If anyone out there knows, please let me know in next week’s Speak Your Piece how I can help the two dogs. Thank you very much.

.

I don’t understand what is coming of this country when cartoons can’t even be cartoons anymore. Now we have Mrs. Butterworth taken off the syrup bottles because it is racist. What about the Indians? What about the Jews? Look how bad they were treated. People have to quit digging up things from the past.

.

Yes, I’m calling about the impeachment. The stupidity on the part of the Democrat Party is unmatched anywhere. This second impeachment is stupider than the first one was. It’s just an insult is all it is. I hate it. It is pure stupidity and it’s a prime example of what you’ve got there.

Concerning the editor’s comment about the ownership of Blue Diamond Coal Company, approximately 45 years ago I did some contract work for Scotia Coal Company at Ovenfork. The check for payment was issued by a liquor distilling company. When I questioned the validity of the check, I was told the distilling company was a part of the Heinz group, and then they made reference to Heinz 57 and said the reason Scotia Coal Company did not make payment was because of a dispute between two labor unions. Thank you for your clarification and have a good day.

(Whoever told you where your paycheck was coming from may have mistakenly confused the ketchup making H.J. Heinz family of Pittsburgh with the family of H.L. Hunt, the Dallas, Texas oil billionaire whose family many people believed, mistakenly, was also behind the Hunt’s food label, which also produces a popular ketchup. The Hunt family of the oil business were at one time major players in the Kentucky coal and thoroughbred horseracing industries. Arch Minerals, which today is known as Arch Resources, was founded in 1969 as a partnership between Ashland Oil and the H.L. Hunt family. The company behind Hunt’s ketchup was founded in California in 1888 by brothers Joseph and William Hunt, neither of whom had any relation to H.L. Hunt.)

.

In the second impeachment trial, President Trump is looking like an absolute idiot, just like he did in the first one — cheating and doing whatever it takes for Republicans to do what they needed to do to steal the election. Even though he looks so bad, the Republicans will do nothing to him. The Republicans are nothing but communists.

.

I just read in Speak Your Piece where the people of McRoberts claim the county did not scrape their roads. Well, who scraped your roads this past week? A black and white dump truck with Letcher Fiscal Court written on the side of it. You need to start paying attention and appreciating what you have. Thank you.

.

The Democrats are writing their own history, but it’s not true. Donald Trump was the best president this country has ever had. The Democrats are doing an untruth.

.

To a certain person: I know you told me that I had only one shot at you. I guess my shot is over. I won’t bother you anymore. I will always cherish the moments I had with you. Have a nice life. Bye.

.

Isn’t it true that most family court attorneys are against abortion and the killing of little children and things of that sort? If you kill the little kids, then the family court attorneys have no one to make any money from. There wouldn’t be any children left to take away from their parents or grandparents or anything of that nature. So, when you see pictures of ex-family court attorneys in a pro-life march, the underlying reason is they want the kids to be born so they have a way of making a living in future generations. That is my opinion.

.

I was reading in Speak Your Piece where everyone was complaining about the condition of their roads. Well, the judge is not going to do anything because he doesn’t know anything. We know what to do when election time comes again — vote them out. Not one of them is worth having in office anyway.

.

You can bet that the people who were making statements that they were acting under Trump’s orders were definitely getting compensated in some way for their assistance. It’s happened too many times before.

.

I think it’s a shame we have two school officials — one a woman and one a man — who are having affairs. What is this world coming to? These are supposed to be people our kids can look up to, yet they are setting a bad example, one even at ballgames. I think this needs to be checked into.

.

All of us are wondering about that $1,400 check Joe Biden promised to send us in his relief package. I need some money to pay my bills off with, but apparently, we aren’t going to get it. All they are talking about on the news right now is putting Donald Trump on trial for something he didn’t do. It just goes to show you that Joe Biden and that Kamala chick will do anything they can to get what they want.

.

My uncle died in Germany in 1944 at age 22. The greedheads in Washington are twisting our constitution into a pretzel, and they don’t even care about all the hundreds of thousands of people who have died defending our constitution.

.

I am an ordinary person and I have read the constitution. The constitution was written in a way they ordinary person can understand, and the way I read it Congress cannot lawfully determine whether the impeachment trial of Donald Trump is constitutional or not. Any constitutional matter must be determined by the Supreme Court, and by the chief justice refusing to preside as judge over the trial the Supreme Court has spoken. The trial of former President Donald Trump is unconstitutional, period.

.

It is pretty rich that Republicans have the unmitigated gall to whine about anyone else’s ‘hypocrisy.’ They claim they’re for freedom of speech — but they only want it for their speech, and they’re eager to kill anyone who talks back to them. They claim they’re for freedom of religion — but they only want it for their religion, and they’re eager to kill anyone else that practices a different faith. They protest that Muslims shouldn’t be allowed to hold office because they’re Muslim first, and yet they bend over backward to do whatever Israel wants, regardless of whether it’s in our nation’s best interests or not. They cry and lie about cities mandating Sharia law — but they’re ready and willing to enact their own form of ‘Christian Sharia’. They claim to support the 2nd Amendment — but they only want it for themselves; they don’t want other people to own weapons and they’re stupid enough to think we don’t. They claim to ‘love the flag’ — but they mostly only wave the Confederate battle flag, the Gadsden flag, or the Trump flag. They claim to be ‘patriots’ — but they support the traitors that attacked our Capitol.

I’m sure a certain school official thinks he’s hit the jackpot with the married woman he is seeing, but this isn’t her first rodeo and it probably won’t be her last, so don’t get too comfortable. I know you have been a very decent man, but you have stepped over the line. You are making fools of yourselves.

.

I think it’s a shame Pizza Hut did not announce its closing in time to give its employees time to line up another job. It is wrong to just spring it on them that the doors are closing. It’s put a big hurt on the people who were working there. We can’t live on bread and water alone.

.

We folks who elected the people to Congress — especially the Republican senators — need to remember that you can’t choose both the means and the ends. You can’t get apples by planting a pine tree, and you can’t have an open and safe democracy by using violence, character assassination, and death threats. Just ask my old German friend who remembers the Nazis who used those same tactics to hang on to power.

.

All of these stores need to put tables and chairs outside so their workers can sit down every now and then. A concrete table outback doesn’t cut it. They aren’t going to sit outback.

.

Thank you, Angie Hatton, for taking up for the babies and going to a prolife march. I was a politically active Democrat for years. I turned Republican for the babies. Thank you.

.

I went to the bank the other day and the clerk there talked to someone on her personal phone for 15 minutes while shuffling my papers and talking about their grandma. I’d say there were five people waiting behind me. The banks need to get ahold of this stuff. They are there to take care of business, not to talk on their personal phone about grandma. You have a nice day.

.

Christian people, you need to read your Bible, especially the Book of Daniel in the Old Testament and his prophecy. Some of what is in the Bible has been fulfilled, so you have to quit your sinning and you need to make it right when you do. Also, quit voting for evil.

. When Joe Biden was a young senator, he would never have signed these destructive executive orders. Now, he will sign anything put in front of him.

.

To the person who said, ‘All you Dummy-crats are going to get what you deserve over the next four years. But it’s a shame us decent human beings have to suffer right along with you’: There’s not a human being among you Trump-worshipping trash, let alone a decent one. But yes, with the better medical care that is coming, along with a better society all the way around, it is a shame that trash like you get to share in it.

.

To the caller who commented ‘in response to protesting the national anthem’: Nobody was protesting the national anthem and you know it. Even if they were, that’s their right as Americans. My family was here 150 years before the United States was formed, and I don’t have to ‘perform’ for you or anybody else. Maybe you should be proving your ‘patriotism’ to me.
