cost of living is cheaper to some degree in big citys.
They have so much compition for car insurance enternet services and so on that you can get that stuff really cheap.

its the little fish they want its the way they been doing things for years. they will spend months chaseing after some girl or some young boy who does the shit and arest. So they won,t have to arest a big time dealer. That,s who takes care of all the highups and all there need,s I have known of big time dealer,s lasting 30 years never be arested . he suported his family and sent his kids to collage . they would go sit on a hillside and pretend . OH WE ARE GOING TO GET,EM . I thought to my self yah right . sence his uncle is a cop.there,s another one been dilling 25 years then you have all the little 10 and 15 dealer,s who do the little nark job,s if they get caught they,r in and right back out on the street next day or so keeps the cops and things looking good.theythen will arest some rookie first time young lady and or young boy and give them years as i said keeps the highups looking good so you people need to contact your Att. gernal and Govner. let them know how you,r end of state is ran .

Well lets see here...everyone in this neck of the woods believes the answers to their problems is to each year become more and more conservative while economically doubling down on the coal industry....Hurts to hear for some of you but its true. We need cultural diversity, a broad economic variety of jobs (not just coal) and an ability to show the rest of the country this is a place of change....not of stagnation....of course there'll be some tool who says we should just keep doing what we've been doing for the last 20 years...because you know..its worked so well before now.

Just look at how stupid the MWD Board is, they keep UMG even though that inept bunch of Tards has broke them again.

If you want Change get rid of UMG and the City sucks that want to sell Liquor on Sundays.

Any place is better than Pikevile, we are over taxed and over Regulated by the out of Control Egomaniacs at the City Hall.

They pay one Girl that works there over $80,000 per year.

I remember Pike County before the 70's coal boom. Few people, empty homesteads, closed, boarded up former commercial buildings and mines. Sadly, I may see it empty out again in my lifetime.

I was a young kid in the late 60's & early 70's when Coal Co's starting opening up & your correct it looks like we are heading back to those days.
