Thinking of buying a new car? You might want to first take a trip down Route 7, from Isom to the Red Star Bridge and on down to Cornettsville and below. If you take that ride, I believe you would change your mind about a new vehicle. It doesn’t pay to buy one in this county. Thank you.

People want to say that others are druggies when they get out of things, and people want to say others are mental patients to get out of things. I don’t believe the second amendment should give druggies, mental patients and criminals the right to have guns.

.

To the young ladies who work in Winston Meade’s office in Whitesburg: You are the rudest and most ungrateful people. You don’t want to help anybody, nor do you want to do anything for anybody. That’s awful.

(Inquiring minds ask and then proclaim: Something tells us there is more to this story.)

.

To a lady in Whitco: Beating and abusing your daddy is a shame. You should be reported, and action should be taken against you.

.

To a certain lady: This is Foxhound. Me and you used to get out just a little bit, over in the Knott County area. Just wanted to know if you wanted to get out again. We might even stir a fire up we used to have years ago. So, this is Foxhound, and I am going to call you Greywolf. Please respond and we’ll see where this goes.

.

To a certain woman: Do you not feel a bit guilty for being with one guy and making him believe that one of the young ones you have is supposed to be his? I know it’s not his and you know it’s not his, and I can tell you who the daddy really is. He works in Whitesburg, and he wear glasses, too. As soon as I saw that young man, I knew the daddy of that child.

.

The attorney general is talking about cleaning up the police departments here and there. Well, I think they need to start right here in Letcher County. We need to clean it up right here in this county and stop trying to run after all these young guys who have done nothing wrong.

.

The militarization of our police forces is what’s wrong in America. God bless you and good-bye.

.

To my nosy next-door neighbor: The reason I moved my chickens out of the bottom and around my house is because my no good brother-in-law and my sister, who you claim talks to you over the computer, claim are going to buy by uncle a double-wide and put it in that bottom. You claim that when they do you will get the land where his house is now, but you have another think coming. You have nothing. You might think you are God’s greatest creature, but you own nothing.

.

Democrats and Republicans alike will say God bless America out one side of their mouth, while on the other side they will say they believe in a woman’s right to choose. Do you people think God is stupid? Have a nice day.

.

To the two people who rebutted my comment about the Mueller investigation striking out: Fact one: The House Democrats had a 17-vote majority. Fact two: There were no charges of fraud or any of the other charges you stated in your comment. You had better believe that if fraud or treason crimes were found in the investigation, Democrats Nancy Pelosi, Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff would have used them. Instead, they used a phone call to a foreign leader, and former President Donald Trump exercised his first amendment right. And yes, even Donald Trump has rights. As of today, no fraud or treason charges have been brought against Donald Trump. The abhorrent propagandist use of the term treason by reprobated people is very dangerous. The Mueller investigation, based on the fraudulent use of the FISA Court, struck out, period.

I have a question concerning the Jackhorn, Kentucky Post Office. There for over a week we had no one in the post office working at the window. The sign just said ‘window will be closed’ with no other explanation. Then we get a fill-in employee. And today, on my way home from work — yes, there are people in Letcher County who actually still work as a coal miner, even though we have to travel — there was a sign on the window saying that we now only get one hour of window service for three days and from three to 11 or something on the other days. Is the postal service in such bad shape that this is what’s happening everywhere else?

.

God bless America. So, the president is wanting to cap all the oil wells? Well, why doesn’t he cap all the volcanoes? They put out a whole lot of pollution, don’t they? Biden has a problem with trying to do all these things at one time. Food prices are going up and the fuel prices are, too. It’s a mess.

.

I would like to take a certain girl down memory lane: Years ago we crossed paths. We talked on the CB radio and I eventually began to think we had a relationship. We grew very close to each other before I made a major mistake, which I see what that mistake was now. Every time I see you, I realize I still have a love for you in my hear. I enjoyed the time we had — to Fishpond, to the gas well — and you told me you have friends, and you have good friends. You are a good friend. Does the love I have for you still burn inside your eyes?

.

To the person who is opening my mail: Could you please not seal it back so tightly?

.

Do home health nurses not get paid for being on call? I wasn’t sure whether they get paid or not, because they sure don’t want to come out and help you. I was just wondering if they get paid, given the way they talk to people.

.

I think all the ladies who work at BP deserve tips just like all the other workers. Come on, people, let’s step up and give them a dollar tip. Thank you.

.

To the person who said, ‘There is nothing wrong with preaching; it’s when they ask for money that’s wrong’: This is the first thing you’ve ever posted that I agree with 100 percent. There’s hope, after all.

.

Not one single Republican voted for the stimulus checks this time. No Republican voted for the increase in Social Security benefits. If you are a Republican, please send your stimulus check back.

.

I have a question for the citizens of Jenkins, especially the ones who pay a garbage bill: How are your garbage men treating your trash? Are they throwing it everywhere and not picking up half of it? I say we need to not pay our garbage bill. We need to go to City Hall and let Mayor Todd Depriest know they need to retrain their garbage men. Thank you.

.

Don’t you just hate the COVID-19 Relief Bill the Democrats pushed through Congress? A lot of ordinary folks — not the high earners — are getting a relief check this month, and they are helping the small businesses who have been trying to stay open this year. All that’s going to cost $1.9 trillion this year, which we can’t afford since the Republicans so wisely gave the corporate billionaires a big check last year. Sure, it will make more jobs. But if they fix the truck-shaking roads and the axle-breaking potholes around here, they will put a lot of car repair folks out of business. Next, they will want to improve our schools and make healthcare affordable. If the Dems don’t stop this nonsense, we will never get back to the old normal. Just sickening.

.

To all those people out there who are drug dealers and claim to know the Lord: You better search your heart. And you prey on people? You suck them dry, and you take advantage of their families and take advantage of their addiction? All of this money you have to buy you things will get you nowhere, for the devil is patting his foot waiting for people like you. You better think about it.

.

Sometimes it’s hard to pray for drug dealers because of what they do for families and the one who are addicted to the drugs. But pray we must. If we love the Lord, we will pray for their souls. May God have mercy on them.

.

A tribute to Terry W. Adams, a wonderful man. I wish the world had more like him. He was a great boss and a great person. Anybody who knew Terry knew his heart lay with his wife. I never knew her, but as dedicated as Terry was to her, so she must have been a wonderful person. But I did know Terry and I did know his brother, Delmas, and both of them are wonderful people.

.

I don’t understand why they don’t bring ‘The Swap Shop’ back on the air in Whitesburg. People really need it. They put on programs that don’t amount to a hill of beans, but when it comes to something the people need, they won’t do it.

.

Why isn’t there anything on the news about the doctor who is accused of molesting this young boy? If it was a man and a girl, they would have it all over the place.

.

President Biden’s stock market performance in his first 100 days in office is better than any of his predecessors going back to at least Dwight Eisenhower in the 1950s.

.

The person who claims the FBI is not doing anything about foreign countries changing votes should contact them and turn over all the evidence he or she has. Obviously, the FBI hasn’t been able to find proof yet. Better still, post the details on Speak Your Piece as well.

.

It’s so nice to see so many businesses hiring. We now have a President who cares about jobs.

.

Concerning the comment from the person who said, ‘President Biden moves around like he’s got a diaper on. He ought to be in an old-folk’s home. Lord I regret ever voting for him. I was a hard-core Democrat — and still am — but not for Joe’: If I had a nickel for every stinking, bald-faced right-wing liar who claimed to be a ‘hard-core Democrat,’ I’d buy Kentucky and run every one of them out.

.

To the person who left the comment about the ‘ Benedict Arnold Syndrome’: Your syndrome is known by the sane population as ‘Trump-sucker.’ We all saw what the insurrectionist traitors did, and no amount of spin will hide it. If that had been anyone other than Trumpsuckers, they’d have been shot down before they got within 500 yards of the Capitol doors.These insurrectionist traitors should have been dealt with the same way. No second warning, and no quarter. Don’t worry, traitor, there’s a reckoning coming for all of you.

.

To my babe girl T.L.B.: God must have spent a little more time on you than all the rest because God made you perfect and I, S.R.B., love you the best. Two hearts together forever. Smiley face.

What is happening? So, in the Letcher County School System, you have two certified employees who have basically ripped apart families. Both of them ignored any type of moral code, fed their selfish desires, and broke up families. Are not educators supposed to be mentors — mentors not only for their families, but for countless families of the children whom they interact with and supervise daily? Mentors not only to those students who are looking up to them, but to their own families. Mentors to the teachers and parents and support staffi who look up to them as leaders each and every day, not to mention the community as a whole? So, what are our leaders going to do about it? Hmmm. I’ve got an idea. Let’s deflect. Yeah. Let’s give them something else to think and talk about. Let’s mess with the lives of others. Let’s take the life of another — an outstanding young man, great teacher, coach, and an outright great person — and let’s fire him. Hey. Let’sfire the basketball coach. Pathetic, Letcher County leadership. Shame be upon you.

.

To Speak Your Piece: Hello friends and neighbors. Looks like the new president has started off destroying the country and bringing more divide to all of us. Stay tuned for the next episode. And also congratulations to the Pound, Virginia City Hall. Jerry Springer will be coming to see you in May 2021. Should be interesting. We’ll talk later.
