Yes, I would like to speak my piece. I wish whoever has this ol’ big black dog in Whitco that is going around and climbing up on my porch and stealing my cushions off my chairs would put it up. If not, I am going to call the dogcatcher. I think it belongs to somebody who lives on Back Street in Whitco. I wish they would put the thing up, because it’s killing us with this tearing up of our chairs and getting into our garbage. This is nonsense. I have dogs, but I keep mine put up. Let them put that bony thing up. It looks like it is starved to death. They better get it and put it up if they don’t want me to call the dogcatcher. I’m giving them a week, and if it’s not put up, I am calling the dogcatcher. Bye.

Folks, when you sit at the drive-thru window while your prescription is being filled, making everyone behind you wait longer, you’re just showing that you have no consideration for others. Call it in first so you can make it quick. If you can’t do that, turn it in and then drive around to the back of the line so others can be served while yours is being filled. A little caring, please.

I fully agree with the recent comment in which the writer said he or she has heard enough from the Trump supporters and from the anti-Trump folks. Enough is enough. The presidential election was last November. It is now March. There are plenty of real national, local and worldwide issues to be concerned with in 2021. The person who sits in the Oval Office doesn’t really have a direct everyday effect on the lives of most citizens. There are state and county and city officials who need to be held accountable for most state and local issues and problems. Please resist the urge to put every bit of blame on the present and former presidents. Not every issue in life relates to Democrats versus Republicans. There are many other things in life to be concerned with.

To my old friend: I didn’t wear my welcome out; I wore my time out. You are a good person, wonderful and precious, and I apologize for staying too long. You are good and you’re going to be okay. Later.

I want to thank TJ. He taught me a lesson. I really appreciate him taking something that didn’t belong to him. Since he taught me such a good lesson, I will give him all kinds of good references, but as far as I’m concerned, he stole.

I’ve been a registered Democrat most of my life, but I don’t play political games. Article Two of the U.S. Constitution gives us the exact rules for voting. Several states have violated these constitutional orders.

During the last year that schools operated normally, one grandmother transported her three young grandchildren to and from Cowan Elementary School daily from her home in Virginia. She had cared for the youngsters for the better part of their young lives. The custodial care of the kids was taken away from their biological parents some years ago by the state of Kentucky, and the responsibility of their safety and welfare fell to the Letcher County Child Services. A local social worker placed the kids in the care of grandmother’s ex-husband, who at that particular time had neither electricity nor running water in the home. So much for this social worker’s foresight and wisdom. After the kids’ mother completed a course in the Harlan County Drug Court, she and the kids’ grandfather came back to claim the children. Although they had the legal right to tear the kids from their substitute home, the grandmother’s ex-husband did not need to proclaim to her, as he drove away with the children, ‘You’ll never see these kids again.’ And she hasn’t. Her attempts to contact the social worker at Child Services have been futile as he has not been in his office (supposedly) to answer a simple phone call as to their welfare.

How do you get to be a member of Biden’s censorship police? I want to join.

.

When you call the sheriff ’s office to get some assistance, they will find a way to hang up on you. You try calling them back again and they will hang up on you again. Mickey Stines may not be aware that some of his deputies are doing this, but one of these days I will catch him out alone and give him a good talking-to.

.

I don’t understand President Joe Biden. He is out trying to help everybody in the United States, not just Democrats. He’s even helping the Republicans. What is wrong with that man? He should turn his back on the Republicans like Trump did the Democrats. Trump even turns his back on his own kind. What a man he is.

I know where there are seven to eight households dumping their trash into one customer’s garbage pickup.

.

I think Barbara Bush should be remembered as America’s Grandma. She was wonderful.

.

My cousin is a preacher who tells me to love my neighbor and pray for my enemies. Why should I have to pray for people who are out here spreading lies behind me behind my back?

.

I am that ‘ordinary person’ someone addressed in the February 27 edition of Speak Your Piece. The caller appears to be well-educated with ample knowledge of the law, and for the caller to legitimize a charged defendant being brought to trial without investigating the charges, no presumption of innocence, and jurisprudence be damned just because he or she has judged the defendant to be a bully is really scary. I am very thankful to the framers of the constitution and the bill of rights that gave us unquestionable laws to fight against the Democrats’ way of thinking.

.

The same words come out of every Democrat’s mouth on television.

.

We are now one day closer to getting that $1,400 stimulus payment from the Democrats. I’m sure most patriotic Republicans will just send their $1,400 check back to the government because of the Democrats trying to help them out. I guess they don’t need any help since they are too busy still crying about the election. Wah, wah, wah.

.

A store has a blonde cashier who needs to adjust her attitude. I won’t be back. Thank you.

.

To a certain person: I am a preacher. Me walking by you will not save your soul. You better want something to do with it, because if you don’t you are on your way to hell. The smell is so bad I have to walk on by. Use some soap and water. Thank you and have a nice day.

.

To a certain person: The idiot you talk about must be you. When you point one finger at someone else there are nine pointing back at you. I can see why no one gives a care about you. You are completely crazy. If ever there was an idiot, you are one.

.

I’m wondering what happened with the medical professional who was charged with sexually abusing the underage boy. We haven’t heard anything else about it. Are all of the charges being dropped? What is going on? It’s all hush-hush now.

(No charges have been dropped, and the case continues to make its way through Letcher Circuit Court, which remains slowed by state-ordered COVID 19 mandates. A hearing in the case is set for April 9.)

.

Hey, you Dummy-crats. Look what your man, Joe Biden, has done to this country. And there’s a lot more to come yet.

.

Well, I guess you people who voted for Joe Biden can see how the gas prices are going up now that he closed the pipeline. Well, look for your electric bill to go up, too, and food and everything else.

(Gasoline prices have been rising steadily since May 2020, nearly a month after Russia, Saudi Arabia, and other oil-producing companies agreed to slash production in order to raise gas prices, which had dangerously bottomed out because of the COVID-19 crisis. President Trump, who helped broker that April 2020 production-cut deal, said at the time that the higher prices would ‘save hundreds of thousands of energy jobs in the United States.’ As a result of the production cuts, the average price-per-gallon of gasoline rose 35 percent between May 2020 and Trump’s last day in office, which was this past January 20. As of last week, the average price-per-gallon had risen an additional 10 percent under President Biden. The American Automobile Association (AAA) said on March 3 that the most recent increase in gas prices is due to the combination of higher demand and recent bad weather that temporarily cut U.S. oil production by 40 percent. AAA also says gas prices may go up an additional five to 10 cents before they start falling again at the end of this month.)

The Republicans say they are against abortion and that we shouldn’t kill babies. I agree we shouldn’t kill babies, but when they let water be poisoned to the point it kills people from cancer, I think they are killing adults and babies, too. They act like they want to cure cancer, but they don’t want to fix the cause of it, which is this polluted water we are drinking.

.

To the idiot who says he is going to kill my cat: Well, I’m going to kill your dog. You didn’t think about that, did you? Remember, cat killer, the dog killer is ready for you.

.

Like a bunch of monkeys in a tree slinging crap at each other, that’s what they’re doing now in the House and Senate. It’s pretty wild, isn’t it, that the Republicans and the Democrats are taking the stimulus money away from the people who make more than $80,000 a year. People who make that kind of money have big bills, too. Their children need the stimulus money, too. Why don’t they do away with the other pork spending instead of taking money away from the American citizens? It doesn’t make sense the way they do business up there.

.

Some people don’t understand how cold being cold is when you don’t have any heat. Some people don’t understand how hungry you get when you don’t have any food. The thing is they have never had to experience it. If you experience it once you feel sorry for who are not safe even if you completely are safe. Just because some people are born rich, they earned it.

.

I would pay 10 dollars a gallon for gas instead of putting up with Trump.

.

Speaking of the new restaurants coming to Whitesburg, why don’t they bring in a big new Chinese restaurant?

.

On March 3 it was reported that since January, 108 immigrants who were positive for the virus were released into the United States. Is that not smart thinking?

.

To the caller who said Republicans act like psychics: You must be the psychic since only you know the crime that Donald Trump committed or the attorney general of New York’s established reason for obtaining private tax returns. Or are they just searching for a crime? Government’s invasion of anyone’s privacy is a dangerous thing. It could be you next; think about it. If Donald Trump had committed a crime it would have been wall-to-wall news for at least a year. Thank you.

.

Here’s my latest death toll prediction of the Trump Pandemic: Over 600,000 dead by June 1. Write it down. Hope I’m wrong, of course, but history books will never forget his lying, denying, refusal to take action, super-spreader events, and recommending treatments that were even more dangerous than they were asinine.

If the new KFC, located out by the Taco Bell, is going to be strictly for drive-thru, wireless and pickup, I don’t see them succeeding for more than six months.

Dear Vietnam vet: I’m glad to hear you are so happy about the recent election and all the progress that guy has made. Can you name three things in the next edition of this paper that he has done that improves the United States of America? I don’t think so. Until then, shut the hell up and get out of the paper. And who cares what you think? Thank you. Signed, an American. l

Dear Speak Your Piece: I’m quite curious as to how someone can put a seven and one-half inch long comment on your Speak Your Piece page in one minute. Are they speaking so fast you make up your own words to figure out what they say? What’s going on with that? Dare you to print this.

(Most often, the longer comments are mailed in electronically or via the post office. And why the ‘dare’?) l

Another Trump-loving traitor whimpers, ‘Biden needs to stop the assault on conservative media and all the other freedoms we have or we will have a civil war.’ Get ‘er started, traitor. Back up your mouth or shut it, and that goes for your orange wannabe Führer and the rest of your treasonous pack, too. Americans need to realize that the greatest terrorist in this country is the Nazi-inspired Republican treason party, and it needs to be put down hard, fast, and permanently. Wipe the entire diseased snake’s den out of existence. We’re going to have to do it sooner or later, so let’s get it over with. l

This is in response to Representative Angie Hatton’s op-ed in the paper: I am just curious as to where she draws her information from, because the lies she put in the paper that you guys printed is a bald-faced lie that is proven by what is printed in other papers. What exactly is your problem? Why won’t you print this? l

To those of you who really need a $1,400 stimulus check, but think Democrats are evil: It is the Democrats who are trying to help you, and the Trump-loving Republicans who are trying their best to block it. I don’t know what your conspiracy websites are telling you, but so far they’ve told you to not wear masks and not to take the vaccine, even though more Republicans than Democrats are getting sick from COVID. Don’t be stupid. Listen to the medical experts, not the wackos that surround the con man. l

It is public knowledge that former President Donald Trump is the defendant in numerous very serious lawsuits. I have a question that requires a legal answer. Can he still run for re-election to the presidency or any other public office if he is in prison? That certainly would be precedent-setting. l

There is no global warming. Look at the recent cold weather and winter storms we had. There is no climate change. It is still cold in winter and hot in summer, and if any Democrat tells you different, they are a liar. The solution for the poor people in Texas that lost their power of electricity and froze and got high electric bills is to get them a good coal stove or build them a good fireplace and let the people from Kentucky bring them some big loads of coal and they can build them a good warm fire and have the smoke rolling out of every chimney in Texas. Then they can stay warm and let the electric people keep their stinking electric bills. l

I would like to say I will never vote for a Democrat again after what they did to our great President Trump. If the Democrats did not steal this election and the people were so ignorant to vote for Democrats, then they deserve whatever comes to them. Also, I will never vote for Mitch Mc- Connell again as he did not stand for the American people against the Democrats.
