Your paper comes to my house each Wednesday. I love to read it. However, enough is enough. The people that are whining about the election need to shut up their whining. They don’t appear to be too intelligent. The election is over. Nothing can be done for the next four years. Let the people enjoy the paper and read about something that can be changed. In four years you will have a chance to vote again; right now there is nothing you can do. So grow up. Otherwise, complain to someone else. I’m tired of hearing it. As they say in the military, ‘Suck it up, soldier.” Signed, a Vietnam vet.

Dear Speak Your Piece: Thank you for allowing me to say something about our restaurants. They need to hire someone to check the bags, to make sure they contain the correct order. I frequent them several times a week and 80 percent of the time I never get all that I ordered, or it will be the wrong order. I know they need our business, but we deserve a correct order. If they would just take an extra minute and check the order against what is in the bag, their customers would be much better satisfied. I realize they are extremely busy in the mornings, but wouldn’t it be better for them to give the correct orders rather than just throwing it out the window with incorrect orders. If they are not real careful they may end up like Pizza Hut in Whitesburg. Have a nice day.

Been sitting here watching a documentary on the coalfields. I think it was filmed in Delbarton, West Virginia and Pikeville, Kentucky, but they did it at about 90 miles per hour. Who knows what they are saying? It is a joke. Do the documentary over.

(You didn’t mention the name of the documentary. Was it ‘The Campaign of Miner Bo’?)

It’s amazing how Joe Biden said he was going to pass the stimulus bill so that people can get money. Well now, we’ve seen no money whatsoever since he’s been in there, and there’s one man in Washington — and one man only — who won’t let us poor people have any money and that is Mitch McConnell. Mr. McConnell doesn’t want us poor people to have anything. He’s rich. He wants the rich people to have everything and the poor people to have nothing. I’m barely getting by right now. I just wonder if we’re ever going to get any stimulus money like Biden promised.

I’m going to kill your cat. This is the old cat killer. You have a nice day.

. Just riding down the road with disgust over the nasty and dirty condition our officials have let our once-beautiful county become. Our county judge, magistrates, and members of law enforcement should be loaded into a van and made to drive around and see what they have allowed to happen on their watch. Unless they are seeking the award for the nastiest county in Kentucky, I don’t see how they don’t hang their heads in shame for what they have allowed to take place in terms of all this litter and garbage. As someone pointed out in Speak Your Piece just recently, this is by far the worst judge and fiscal court this county has ever seen.

.

How’s being a ‘second amendment sanctuary’ county working out? We should ask the man who shot his stepson in selfdefense. What the Letcher Fiscal Court did was a total political stunt.

.

I guess you all see what kind of shape the world is going to get into because they didn’t want Trump back in as president. They wanted some old man who needs to be in a nursing home somewhere. I don’t know what we’re going to do. We’ve lost everything now.

.

If there is a worse state highway crew than what we’ve got here in Letcher County I would hate to see it. We have potholes a foot deep on US 119 at Ermine — less than half a mile from the highway garage at Mayking — and our highway crew hasn’t taken one single step to fill them in. I would hate to imagine how many wheels have been knocked out of line and tires ruined because of the poor performance of our state highway workers. Who is in charge of this mess?

.

Orange Man Trump said, ‘when the looting starts the shooting starts,’ but I wonder why that didn’t that happen when all those Trumpettes and cheerleaders for the QAnon were at the Capitol breaking windows and trying to kill people? Why didn’t the shooting start then? Something to do with Republicans and criminals, I guess.

.

To a certain person: You live up on the river and you stole my chainsaw several years ago. You stole my Weed Eater and a few more things, too. You don’t think I know who you are, but you live on the right-hand side of Payne Gap. Your day is coming, young man. Later.

Dear Speak Your Piece: Biden needs to stop the assault on conservative media and all the other freedoms we have or we will have a civil war.

If Andrew Cuomo, the governor of New York, wants to clear his name all he has to do is get on Fox News and announce that he is switching his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican. Since today’s Republican Party supports its officials who are accused of sexual abuse, Cuomo would be a GOP hero if he announces to Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity or Lauren Ingraham that he will run for re-election as a Republican.

.

I am so glad the new restaurants are coming into this county. I would love to see more businesses come to this county, because the people who live here really need better jobs. I know these are minimum wage jobs, but at least it’s something. What I want is factories and more opportunities for our people. I hope that our county judge/executive will start going to Frankfort to negotiate and help our county. Thank you.

Last February 27 our then-president said, ‘It’s like a miracle; it will disappear.’ Did you fall for it?

.

To a certain caller: Ordinary people understand; what is your problem? I will let Article One, Section Three of the U.S. Constitution speak for itself. So the chief justice of the Supreme Court agrees with the constitution that the trial of Donald Trump was unlawful and unconstitutional. And you say the prosecutors proved their case? What case? Are you referring to the charge of inciting an insurrection that was brought without any investigation, without presumption of innocence, without due process, without a proper judge, and by eliminating evidence favorable to the defendant? Get real. The double-tongued Democrats in Congress have spent hundreds of millions of dollars just trying to find a crime that Donald Trump committed. Thank you.

.

Why are Nancy Pelosi, RINO’s and Democrats in Congress turning the people’s house — the U.S. Capitol — into a den for vipers, liars, cutthroats and thieves? It appears that President Joe Biden and elected Democrats, in conjunction with teachers’ unions, have created a more dangerous pandemic for the nation’s schoolchildren than the COVID-19 pandemic itself. And why do liberal and far-left Democrats keep trying to convince us that everything we deem to procedural and normal is filled with systemic racism, even to the point that the works of Shakespeare and mathematics are racist and the sum of two plus two does not equal four? Is it because they prefer Leninism or plain stupidity?

.

A message to all who call in spewing lies about liberals and socialism and communism: How long will it take for you to realize that the TrumPutin terrorist wing of the God Offal Party is still taking advantage of your gullibility?

.

To a certain person: You are ignorant of the Bible, because you don’t say who will go to heaven or hell. The Bible says the Lord is a God of mercy, love and compassion, and that anybody who takes His place as judge is a sure candidate for hell. Worry about your own soul. You are letting your tongue get ahead of you. Don’t worry about my money. It doesn’t concern you. Bye. Have a nice day.

.

To two certain young ladies who walk at the walking track: The next time you have to use the bathroom, please go into the bathroom. Quit going behind the building and pulling your clothes down. People do fish for a living and we don’t want to see something like that.

.

To a certain fellow who professes to be a preacher: How can you win souls when you just walk past people like they are nothing? If that’s being Christian, I don’t want anything to do with it.

.

I thought that after the November election the Republicans would be able to work with the Democrats to really get something done for our country. But I am disappointed. It seems that our Republicans can support only something that they have originated. Some of the things being proposed were things the Republicans supported before, but not now since the Democrats are in charge. What is the matter with them? Don’t the Republicans care only about their power instead of the benefit of our country? I am really sorry and disappointed. Thank you.

.

Grouch, don’t you worry about where I’m going, heaven or hell. Any kind of look I give you is one of pity. The devil will hug you when you go. Mind your own business.

.

If you want to save the United States, then immediately and permanently exile that entire pack of rabid right-wing vermin from the United States of America. Otherwise, we’ll be lucky if we still have a country in six months’ time.

.

To the Letcher County School System: I don’t see how you expect us to send our children back to your facilities if your teachers are not willing to take the vaccine. I am going to tell anyone I can talk to that we need to think of our children first. It’s a shame our teachers aren’t willing to take the COVID vaccine. Thank you.

.

People, please read your Bible. Read Revelations and Daniel. Serve God; don’t sin. Just live for God, because that’s what’s going to make our nation great. God bless you. Bye.

I am looking to reunite with a girl I knew about 10 or 12 years ago. She was a beautiful girl and wonderful person whose first name starts with the letter C. If anybody knows her or knows where she may have moved to, I wish they would respond in Speak Your Piece, but only if she is not married. I don’t want to interrupt anything there. I would very much love to have dinner with her. She is a special person and I think a lot of her.

A perfect example of the differences in the morals of Democrat and Republican politicians can be seen in how the cases of unwanted sexual advances are handled by the two parties. On the one hand, we have New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, while on the other hand we have our former president, Donald Trump. Cuomo is accused of slipping unwanted kisses and touches on at least two or three unsuspecting young women. Trump is accused of sexually abusing at least 25 women through rape, assault and harassment. Already, Democrat Party leaders, including House Speaker Pelosi, are saying the women who are accusing Cuomo should be believed, which is what the same Democrats said about the women who have accused Trump. Meanwhile, the same Republican leaders who supported Trump against the sex-related accusations against him are among the loudest voices now calling on Cuomo to resign his office. As usual, the Democrat leaders show higher morals than the Republican leaders do. Mark this down: The Democrats will soon force Cuomo out of office for kissing and touching while the Republicans will stand by Trump, even though their hero is accused of being a rapist. You can’t make this stuff up. Truth really is stranger than fiction.

.

To the person who said Democrats are as dumb as coal buckets: Don’t forget that I remember who your mother is and who your real father is. So you don’t want me to get started on you.

.

Ted Cruz said at the CPAC meeting that ‘Donald J. Trump is not going anywhere.’ I assume Ted Cruz and his family all loaded up and went to visit Trump in Cancun when the freeze and deadly power outages happened in Texas. What a Republican.

.

Funniest thing I’ve ever seen is when these Republicans act like psychics and tell us Donald Trump is here to stay. Well, I knew that last week when the attorney general of New York got those thousands of pages of tax returns from Trump. He definitely will not be going anywhere after he is indicted and facing prison. Praise the Lord.

.

When President Biden should have been taking the weekend off, he had to fly to Texas to work to try to straighten out the mess the Republicans caused with their deadly power outages. No wonder everybody thinks the Democrats are stupid for trying to straighten up the messes the Republicans have been making for decades.

.

To a certain person: You can say all of the bad things you want to about me, but in the end I got full custody of my children, which means I wasn’t too bad of a person like you say I was. What have you done? You married eight times, you had four children, and you blame everything on everybody else. You are such a piece of trash.

.

Dear Speak Your Piece: I know a lot of Democrats in Letcher County who are good people. They are not the problem.

.

Could someone tell me why Jenkins High School basketball is forfeiting district games? I understand Jenkins has only six players, but teams usually take it easy on Jenkins and don’t run up the score. Let these kids play basketball and quit forfeiting games. It’s not fair. Our sports programs are already bad enough. Let the kids play, regardless. Thank you. l

Does anyone out there want an idiot — and I do mean an idiot? He is no good, except when he wants to be a smart-aleck, and he doesn’t give a dadburn about anything, four-legged or two. If you do want this idiot, reply in Speak Your Piece. Maybe I’ll give you some more information about the idiot I am talking about. This one doesn’t give a care about anybody. l

Lindsay Graham and Gym Jordan just filed for bankruptcy because they can’t afford to pay to play golf. They are trying to get Trump back in office so they can play for free. l

I would like to wish several people happy birthday. Opel Boggs celebrated on February 11. I think Cassel, her husband, had a birthday on March 1. A longtime friend and neighbors, backing up to Jamie Pack, February 5, Xavier, Lonnie’s grandson, Joseph Pack, Jonathan Pack, Dakota Fields. Thank you very much. Please print this. Someone put this on Facebook or something. I’m wondering where Regina Bates ever got to. Just concerned. Thank you, Stanley Pack. l

Treasonous Trump can run for president as many times as he wants, but his orange face isn’t getting back into the White House. He ought to run to Putin and get out of the United States to help us all. l

I’ve been watching the news, and if you didn’t know any better you would think Trump was still in office. You never see Joe Biden and they hardly ever mention his name. l
