Who are all these young people on facebook starting the "Yes for Progress" talk? Aren't they the VERY same ones who were so supportive of the "WET" vote, by wanting to bring alcohol to Knott County? You guys have nice energy, but you're wasting your time. You've been watching too much television and you're being brainwashed by big city ideas. Don't you young'uns have anything better to do than waste your life with this progress stuff? Knott County has everything it needs. If you don't like it, then move.

I totally agree.Not happy,move on.Alot of opportunities for education now.Too many check drawers in Knott County who sat idle all day looking to put the county down when they don't do anything anyway.They sat and point fingers at everybody but never look at themselves.They can't improve their own circumstances,but they can point out how to help the county?

it is mostly the check drawers that voted the county to stay dry, it was mostly the working people who voted wet, all i saw at the polls were over whelming numbers of check drawers who is also church people, thats all they have to do is go vote cause they have no life except church and voting and waiting on there ssi check, the people that works mostly voted wet because they take vacations out of town and go outta town on weekends and we see what other places have to offer, this town has nothing,you think you would want a more bigger and better town, so our kids would not have to move away to work and such, theres nothing here for our kids future , unless there gonna live in a trailer in a holler and work at a gas station or whatnot for minium wage, and i want far better than that for my children!

Yes I supported the wet vote, and I will again if it ever comes to ballot. I had to move off for 4 years because of your beliefs that the county has enough. I moved, made money, came back and now have invested my money in a business to pay taxes in Knott County. I spend my money in Knott County and I WORK in Knott County. I have opened one business and in the process of opening another. I love my county, it's people, and it's beauty. I have started websites promoting what we have, not what we don't. Come on, admit it, you're a dying breed, and soon to be a minority in this county. Our young people are tired of your uneducated ideas and want our kids to have some opportunities we didn't.

Welfare has become a way of life in our area. Welfare was intended for people that are in a rough time in their life, not a way to support them from birth till death. I pay my taxes, invested money where my mouth is, and will continue to push for a better county. What have you done????

If there is nothing here, why are you here? Do you live in a trailer in a holler {nothing wrong with that, why try to put people down that do}? Encourage your children to get a good education, then they can live anywhere and make a good living, even Knott Co.

Do you work at a gas station or whatnot for minimum wage? If so how can you afford those vacations and travel outta town on weekends?

You can't put forth a good argument as to why the county is still dry. Just the usual name calling and childish behavior.

I didn't vote wet or dry because I really don't care one way or the other but I do not believe that progress comes through alcohol sales. The "progress" people have great ideas and should by all means continue in their effort to bring progress to our county. The problem is that the "dry" voters think that progress is keeping alcohol sales out and the "wet" voters believe that if we allow alcohol sales we will instantly get new restaurants and new jobs. No restaurant chains will locate to our area unless our population increases. We do not have enough people here to support any more restaurants than we already have. We also lack in infrastructure such as water, sewer, and electricity that does not go out every time it rains or snows. We also lack in political leadership. Too many people are elected because they are popular, kin to everybody, tied to big coal or they buy votes. In my opinion we have always been lacking effective LEADERS in our local political positions. Another area we are lacking in is education. Some of the topix posts I have read in other threads are proof positive that our schools are not teaching our kids how to read and write. If we want real progress our educational system needs a complete overhaul. Teachers who cannot teach should be fired. Children who are keeping other kids from learning by being disruptive should be dealt with. Parents who will not teach their children the difference between right and wrong should be made to work hard labor. I could go on but I have work to do.
The real question is what is progress and how do we get it and what are we willing to sacrifice for it?
Well

I think you are mixing apples and oranges here. There are many areas for improvement, and making alcohol sales legal is only one step in that direction. The dry voters don't think of keeping alcohol sales out as "progress". To them it's all about requiring drinkers to drive 20 miles to buy a bottle of wine. And I don't think any of the wet voters believe that voting wet "will instantly get new restaurants and new jobs". It's just simply the right thing, and the smart thing, and the progressive thing to do.

How am I mixing apples and oranges? The topic is "Progress for Knott County". Most of my post includes some of my thoughts on why we do not progress. In some of the many other "alcohol" threads the wetters are talking about all of the restaurants and new jobs that would have resulted if we had gone wet. Likewise many of the dryers seem to be afraid that there would be a liquor store at the mouth of every holler if we went wet. The only thing that would happen if we went wet is that some of the gas stations would sale beer and we'd probably have a couple of liquor stores open up. No new restaurants would be likely to open and very few if any new jobs would be added. And if they were they'd be minimum wage. Having said that I think that we should not even be voting on this issue. Alcohol is legal and legal businesses should be able to sale it. We are encouraging bootlegging otherwise.

Ah, the classic "if you don't like it hyer you can get out buh gawd"!! "We hain't chaingin' fer nobody"!!

I think not. See, that's one of our main problems...instead of this place providing for its citizens, like it's suppose to and like pretty much any other place does, it's own backwardness and corruption destroys it. Therefore, anyone with an education who is able to see the flaming, obvious problems this place has is told to "get out". Then, they do, and because of that, we're left stagnant with an extraordinary amount of problems on every level, because the same apathetic, uninformed populace has been here for X amount of years . This is the first group that has had the nuts to stand up for what is right and true in DECADES in Knott County. I pray they left an impression, and don't give up on trying to improve things around here for the good of all, especially the next generation. They are the ones who are truly going to have to pay for what has been done here.
So I guess

No, no you be wrong my friend. People stood up and said no to alcohol. That's the way the people felt and that's the way the people voted. Why are you wetters having a hard time with a majority dry vote? Voting is the American way.

If Knott County wants "progress," then they should send all the liberals to Floyd County or Perry County. And take your beer and pills with you.

You are correct. You'd have to take me just to help you load the pills and the liberals, because there are so many of them. Your name says it all. Tote your gun (with your three teeth) and vote for Romney this time.

You've reduced yourself to name calling and insults, both of which exhibit the lowest possibly form of wit and intelligence. You know nothing of which you speak, and every glorious, ignorant filled syllable you post proves that. I guess we could have guessed that days ago by the high volume of names you use on here. I really want to say that you reflect the mentality of the average dry voter, but that would be insulting to the dry voters, as uninformed as even they are. At least they're consistent.
